* I've only illustrated this I did, I did not write it, Shankies wrote this *
This is what I made for my ART4 exam. All the illustrations (bar the front cover) are done by hand with a quill and inks (with help from a few copic markers and a computer program to correct a few things). It's a children’s story/fairy-tale
This was going to be a flash book, but for some reason it wouldn't work for me, so it's a PDF for now, but I will try again after the summer.
I enjoyed doing this and might do this again in the future, wither in collaboration with another author or with my own work
Art by me
Story by Shankies
a work in progress for a drawing I'm working on for a challenge here on theO, I like it but I'm not that sure if I should cary on with it
I made this dress ^^ and I'm really proud of it too, I made it so I could wear it to a relatives wedding.
It was inspired by 50's dress style and a little bit of Lolita too. It also has a little bow/belt thing around the middle (you can't see it very well due to the fact it's the same colour as the main bit, but does make a nifty scarf XD )
I followed a pattern for the most part but edited to suit my needs, due to the fact that I haven't really got much of a shape, I did originally make it a size too big and had to make it smaller and even then had to add a belt to it
Sorry for the bad photograph of me , I had borrowed a college camera and they are really good ones but unfortunately it was my mum who was taking the photograph . The other two were taken by me but had to be edited due to bad light
I really like how it turned out, it turned out well in my opinion and people seem to like it also me and my sowing machine are getting along much better, I am no longer afraid of it
Next time I would maybe make the belt/bow a different colour and maybe make the dress more frilly
I'm going to try and make a skirt soon, I found some I would really like to try myself :D
Time it took to make: about 8-9 ish hours spread over a few days
I hope you all like it :D
A drawing of a cavalier king charles spaniel named Molly
I've only recently learnt how to use the crayon on paint tool and I wanted to practice drawing with it (I coloured it using the marker pen) ^^
So I decided to draw myself watching Stargazing live on the BBC, I think there should be more episodes of it than just 3 a year and I enjoyed it, make me wish I had chosen Physics at college ^^' I would of enjoyed it more if my mum hadn't been ranting and shouting at the television whenever Prof. Brian Cox was talking! She really hates him, I quite like him, and I mean I understood most of the things he's saying and that he can take the micky out of himself.
Also in this drawing I have for once been able to restrain my hair so that the daft flicky outy bits were contained in the side plat, it worked for a bit but because my hair is layered and all over the place they started escaping after a while ^^
I hope you all like it
