So it occured to me that I haven't really posted much of my stuff here on Craftster (mostly because I joined to try and get into other crafts and experiment and learn new things). I'm drawing a blank as to things I've done recently (aside from a large self-portrait downstairs) so here's my standard "showing off" work from a few years ago, ranging from summer '05 and the schoolyear that followed. I hope I've gotten a bit better but at least this will give a small example of the things I've done (aged 15, 16 and possibly 17 as I am now). I hope you like it!

Summer 05:

(actually that was before the summer. Regular inky pen)


Watercolours and ink.



(sorry about the pictures!)


This needs a little explaining: it's a photocopy of an original drawing I did (but it looks identical to the original, you'll just notice it says photocopy in pencil at the bottom) because the original had to go into my exam that year (again this was before the summer) but I wanted to keep a copy. Alice in Wonderland (and unless I was subconciously inspired, it's a completely original character, I just started drawing).



Chagall-inspired work for schoolyear 05-06:

"The Birthday", ink.


The hands make me cringe SO MUCH but I like the colours, and it was only homework, I guess...


Does the shading remind anyone else of Anya from Buffy?  Grin




Original work from that schoolyear, drawn from ELLEgirl models:

(that's her ankle at the bottom, not her knee! My mother is so silly  Grin )





A veeeerry quick sketch I did:


Annnnd finally for now, the Girls Aloud parody CD cover I did for my boyfriend  Tongue  Wink


That's it for the moment! I have a little more old work that I might upload later, and I don't know how much I've done lately/this year/what newer work I have but I might upload that too, if I get a chance.

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

All of these are really neat. I enjoyed looking at them. I really like the watercolor of the girl in the water.
P.S. Is that "veeeery quick sketch" Amelie? It looks just like her.

All of them look amazing! I especially love the water color and ink one as well. And it seems I was beat to the Amelie question.  Smiley

They are all so nice it is hard to single out a favorite! I too like the ink and watercolor- very loose and expressive.
I also really like the Chagall inspired one...you caught some of his essence- which is tricky to say the least!
Thanks for sharing them

Yes! That is Amelie! I'm a little in love with her  Tongue
Thanks for noticing!

Meandering, I love Chagall, so that's really nice to hear (and that was WITHOUT some kind of goat in the picture Wink)

Thanks everybody for your kind words, it's much appreciated  Smiley
