Something Gothic

For Colour Collective's 'Licorice' prompt, I decided to go a bit gothic. And I didn't want to spend too much time with linework, as I'd been doing very detailed linework of landscape scenes for a year 4 geography program all week, and I'd had it with linework and grasses. =P 


So this is almost entirely done with the lasso tool and a big textured brush (Kyle T Webster's Gouache a Go Go). I just added a tiny bit of linework at the end, to make sure things stood out enough. It was cathartic. 

I was inspired, oddly enough, by a photograph in the national geographic of someone surrounded by red bouquets of incense sticks. I realise I moved about as far away from that as possible. =P

Cheese Thief

Still super-busy, so I'm still stuck with only the quickest of sketches for Colour Collective. This was for the 'Ceylon Yellow' prompt, and was originally, in my head, rather bigger. But my imagination draws quicker than I do, so most of it was jettisoned. Such is life...

The original plan was to have three mice, pushing and pulling a big jar of mustard on a little trolley made of found objects. As you can see... we now have one mouse, no mustard, and no trolley. But we do have cheese.

Moonlight

I had to think of the quickest thing I could for Colour Collective's 'Iris Blue' prompt, because I have so much work on - I didn't want to miss Colour Collective, but I also couldn't spare more than an hour. 

So here we have it. Baby owlet with the moon, very sketchy:
