11  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Blue Fire - Blue Morpho Butterfly with that grungy touch on: February 24, 2014 06:27:14 PM
Okay I LOVE moths and butterflies. Moths a smidge more, but c'mon, they're fab.

This little dude is a Blue Morpho, they have the most incredible sheen to their wings. So damn pretty!

It's painted with acrylics and a tiny bit of coloured pencil on a 11"x14" piece of watercolour paper, and then sealed with a glossy finish.


12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Horn Pendants - Dani Style on: February 18, 2014 05:26:38 PM
So long ago I was inspired to make some of these for myself, and for some reason today got chosen as the day (makes sense, I have a final tomorrow, procrastination time!!).

I made these babies with some (pink) polymer clay, inserted a fixture for hanging them on a chain and popped them in the oven to cure. They then got a layer of matte black paint, then got all beautiful with coats of two of my current favorite nailpolishes. On Her Majesty's Secret Service by OPI and ... Peace, Love & OPI by OPI I think? And then lacquered with a couple layers of my clear top coat.

I love them so freaking much

Both of these are for the same person - happy dogs!
Both are done with acrylics, the golden pup on a 10"x10" canvas, the husky on a 16"x16".


...and Sakari!

Here is how I spent most of my winter break!

This one is a gift for a random gift exchange at my family's Christmas party. I wanted to keep it for myself! Ha!

This one is a contest entry - I got first place! Yay! Its actually an ACEO, so a little artcard, 2.5"x3.5" with acrylics.

ACEO trade! Again, wanted to keep this one!

15  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Ancient Smiles - Bones and Butterflies on: January 12, 2014 09:39:42 AM
Three things that I love : bones, butterflies (actually a moth..) and coffee. <3

Plus some tea, I suppose. Originally I dyed some watercolour paper with a very strong mixture of black tea and some brown ink, which always results in such pretty textures, not to mention the colour. Then I went to town with black ink pens, then shaded with a strong brew of coffee, and highlighted with some white ink.

Sabre-toothed cats have pretty skulls, and Comet moths are super neat. <3

Bit of an accomplishment, this piece was. I very rarely do any work with humans in my art, and although it was one hell of a struggle, I'm very happy with the result! I painted it with acrylics on a 16"x20" canvas

17  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Breaking Point - Raven With a Golden Ribbon on: January 12, 2014 09:32:14 AM
This little piece is called "Breaking Point", hours of tiny details with india ink and golden ink. That stuff is so shimmery and metallic, so pretty. <3

18  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Little Flame - Furry Fireball Portrait on: November 30, 2013 08:40:04 AM
Here is a little pet portrait I did for my boss, little cutie named Dexter. I had the hardest time photographing this painting, my purples basically disappeared.

I painted it with acrylics, on a 12"x16" canvas.

Hopefully that little gif works! Just shows the piece in progress. All of the in-progress photos are pretty washed out, that's what happens when my workspace is surrounded with big windows.

19  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Lightly - Coffee, Wolf Skulls and Moths on: November 29, 2013 08:55:50 PM
I've been a major slacker when it comes to keeping this updated with fresh artwork! Whoops!

I love experimenting with mediums, including non-typical painting thingers, such as good old coffee! I've even given painting with fresh berry juice a try!

Skulls are one of my favorite subjects when it comes to art, I've got a crazy fascination with bodies. Yay <3
And moths & butterflies are close runner-ups.

The base is done with India ink, nice lines, and then I went to town with the coffee. Sadly the smell wore off. Sad

Now a question for fellow artists out there, what sort of "non-typical" art supplies have you used before? Any favorites that you continue to use?

Peace out loves!
20  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Tired Eyes, Wild Mind - Borzoi and Birds on: October 05, 2013 01:31:14 PM
Forgot to upload this one too!

I am completely in love with ink. I think the next step is to add a simple splash of colour (watercolours probably, since my coloured ink stash is limited to sepia - boo! Time to buy more!), orrrrr utilize this AMAZING gold ink I have. That ink is a living entity, I swear it. I open up the bottle and all the pigment is swirling around, bubbling up like magma, even 10 minutes later, the bottle not being disturbed at all. I took a video but not sure if I can upload it!

Borzois are so pretty <3
