Cartoon Creation

I was tempted to call this post Manga Mama…but it’s a little too slangy for me!

I was wanting to sketch, but in a colorful way… not in a gray way!

While in Florida last month we came upon a bunch of vendors as we made our way to the beer tent.   This cover-up caught my eye!  Must’ve been the bling!  The booth peddler was kind enough to let me try this on.   The skirt appeals to the gypsy in me!   I think my friend would’ve bought one for her grand-daughter if she only had her wallet with her.

I spotted this picture on flickr that I had to replicate!  Just plain fun!

I opted out of coloring in the background the manual way and instead used photoshop to render some clouds.  A little more appealing without all that stark white.  I used watercolor pencils for the hair, skirt and frame.  My favorite markers for the rest.

Again….can’t seem to tilt heads today!  Ahhh well, I wasn’t aiming for perfection anyway!

Happy Thursday everyone :)

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
