I had a long weekend for Veteran’s Day so I decided to paint something on a canvas bought a long time ago. I think that this is the first time I’ve ever tried to paint realistic faces, so please keep that in mind. I had first planned on making it more realistic than it turned out, but I actually like the fact that the colors aren’t the exact shades as the photo. I painted me (on the left) the first day, and my sister (on the right) the second day. I think I did better the second day. So here they are:

I found a photo of a clay chibi that I made last summer. It’s supposed to be Tris at at the beginning of Insurgent, the second novel in the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I didn’t particularly like the book, but I decided to make her anyway because some of my friends were crazy about it.
Here is yet another assignment from my Drawing and Design class. I am currently painting a 12 step color wheel (with acrylics) from a collage I made. I am not done yet, but I thought that my readers out there might enjoy some work in progress. Please let me know if you would like me to post once I’m finished with a project, post stages of progress after I have completed the project, or just post my process as I work on it. Hope you enjoy! (I personally like the yellow orange vacuum cleaner the best)
This is another assignment from my Drawing and Design class. I had really never drawn feet before, so this was a new experience. The seven hands and feet are shaded with pencil and the background is done in watercolor. My favorite foot is the second one from the left at the top and my favorite hand is left most one in the middle. Tell me what you think about it!
I used a tutorial for a beaded donut pendant (couldn’t find it, though –sorry!) and put a Japanese 100 yen coin inside before tightening it. It looks a bit like a mirror from afar.
