I finished and uploaded the full time-lapse video for my Lion Art. It is sped up and shows the artwork process from start to finish.
I’ll be starting on my next picture hopefully tonight or tomorrow. It will be a little different, more of a fantasy type picture, but I’m not going to spill the beans yet. You’ll have to wait for some sketches.
Here’s the video. Enjoy!
I have finished my recent artwork, Lion Art. It is a digital painting in black and white, and another in my animal series. I’m kind of liking black and white at the moment, so I have a feeling a few more artworks in this style will be coming soon. That being said, I actually think I’ll be doing a few human portraits next, but I don’t know for sure. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what I’m in the mood for. I do have several pictures planned.
I’m currently working on the video I made while working on this picture, and I’ll upload that as soon as it is finished.
For those interested I have prints of this art here.
I have a new artwork started. It will be a picture of a lion in black and white. I’m not finished with it yet, but this video shows the beginning of the art. Enjoy!
I thought I’d share some of my art. These are two commissioned pieces for the author, Rose Withering, and her coloring book project of Fantastic Tales of Fae. She has been using these as promotional pieces, and at a recent art fair/comic con had a coloring station set up at her table so that people could color the pages. I have to admit it is fun seeing people color my drawings.
I hope everyone had a good holiday season. To be honest, I didn’t but I was still very blessed overall and was very happy to be with family. I was going to write about some of the hardships that came my way in December but I’ve decided to go a different route. It’s a new year so no need to dwell on what didn’t go so well for me last month. The reality is that 2018 might actually prove to be a more difficult year for me, but I’m not going to focus on that tonight. Instead, I’m going to concentrate on small goals that I can control.
Of course New Year’s Day is naturally a good time to reflect on goals, and I think one thing I’d like to do differently this year is actually make more specific goals. Not something so broad that it becomes meaningless For example, I want to build my portfolio. But what does that even really mean? That goal is too broad and I’ll likely not get anywhere with it. What will it take to reach that goal? How many pictures? In what style? What theme? I’ve realized I don’t always give my goals the structure they need for me to attain them. So, tonight I think I’ll sit by myself think through some of these goals, write them down, and be prepared for a new year.
In other news, here is a landscape painting I did for my dad and step-mom. It is the first landscape I’ve painted, at least from what I can remember. I used one of my husband’s photographs as reference.
The site that I use to print my work is Pixels, and they recently added this new feature that allows you to view the art on a wall at various sizes. I love this feature because not only does it let the viewer get a decent idea of what an artwork might look like on their own wall, but it gives me the artist a chance to display different artworks together. Some of my art are stand alone pieces, but some are done in a series.
Anyway, I thought I’d share three of my portraits using this new feature. In this example they are sized at 16×20. These three portraits can be found here.
Watch my video to see me do a digital painting of an arctic fox from start to finish.

This is my newest artwork, an animal portrait of an Arctic Fox. I have plans to eventually paint big scenes and landscapes with animals, but for now I just love painting portraits, both human and animal. This little fox was so adorable, how could I not paint him! I don’t think I’ll ever grow tired of portraits. I also made a video of me doing this digital painting, so I’ll post that later for those interested in watching the process.
Prints are available here.
It has been a while since I’ve posted one of my artworks, and this one may seem a bit familiar to anyone that has watched this blog over the year. This is a digital painting portrait where I’ve recently added some updates. I also have the black and white version without the clown make-up and hair ribbon.
This portrait was actually a redo of a painting I did about 8 years ago. Sometimes I enjoy going back to old pictures and ideas and completely redoing them to see if I’m able to improve them. I made a video showing the old version in comparison to this new one, and I’ll make sure to add that to a blog post later today.
Prints available here.
Here is a recent digital painting of a cardinal on a branch. It was done in a more painterly style, and I’ll add it to my collection of animal pictures.
