There is no rest for the wicked! New sketch and concepts...

Swan Girl Sketch!
As the title suggest, there is no rest for me, the wicked artist :P Since the Dragon painting had begun I acquired 4 new Bird Girls, and that has meant alot of brain energy of mine has gone into concept drawing.

The one above for Swan I had been thinking of since December when I asked my boyfriends sister, Jenny, to pose for my Swan girl!
The pose itself I was so determined on, and I knew how bold she would have to be to go along with it lol, but she is a gorgeous lady and followed my instructions beautifully!
I am really excited about my sketch - it carries on with my hopes for fuller backgrounds, more details and more thoughts included.

As it was one of my New Years Resolutions I am also going to be painting on something new!
see the strong man at work!! :D
Richard dug out an old piece of laminated plywood which was super thick and heavy :P it had gotten a bit dinged up so he filled the holes in for me and even gessoed it sweet thing!
Its pretty massive, and should make for a wonderful painting surface.

The other 3 bird girls are nearly done with their basic rough sketches. I am still awaiting on reference pics for 2 and brain space for the third.
I really wish I could be a full time artist so I could do all of this in a much more timely manner lol!! Someday right ;)

  1. Oooh I love your sketch. I think she'll make a beautiful painting. Reminds me of a novel I read about a girl's brothers who were all turned into swans... :)
