my White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland

This is NOT one of the official lessons from the Ever After art course but one I wanted to do on my own in my own way........the B&W version is just my color photo with a setting changed to black and white....I really love how it turned out but I still might tweak the background

Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum and the caterpillar from Alice in Wonderland

these were not actual lessons from the Ever After art course but the lessons have inspired me to create more characters from Alice in Wonderland. I sketched these out last night and painted them today

my version of Galadriel.......


my version of 
Galadriel
lesson taught for Ever After art course.....by Mystele...but I ended up doing my take on it and did not really follow the lesson. I think that was because I sort of did her techniques on the last 2 pieces of artwork I did and I really felt led to do this take on Galadriel from Lord of the Rings as the Lady of Light...since she was known as that and was the fairest of all the elves in the Middle Earth......

another finger painting....

just trying to let it go...not worry about the end result....I just started smearing paint around......and kept at it until I liked the shape and could see a face in there. At first I had eyes closed but I swear I saw a face in there with eyes open that really wanted to be seen. This is the end result......

more Jay Park artwork......

Since I seem to have developed a Jay Park brain lately.....I have been working on some more artwork of him using techniques I am currently studying in an art course I have been taking.

This was the first colored painting I have ever done of Jay Park. I wanted to try a technique using shades of black, grays and go all the way up to whites.....which I still cannot do very well. I then added color to the background. This is very hard for me for some reason.....so I am going to have to keep practicing this to try and improve.

Jay Park

I had done the following sketch of JP some time back with graphite and charcoal but felt it was not that good.......so I then took pics of it with my camera and changed tint settings...I like the color tinted version I think better

Jay Park

I really liked working on this last piece....I basically did a sketch with graphite pencil and added a watercolor crayon base in yellow....followed by staining with red iron oxide.......and then adding the blues.....love how it turned out
