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 :)

- 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!
