Just a quick post to wish the one and only Hobi the happiest of birthdays and a coming year full of happiness and love!
I almost didn’t manage to finish this drawing in time 😅 I’ve been so busy that I only managed to start colouring a couple days ago and my foolish self decided to still go for A4 size even though I’ve never done a ‘big’ coloured pencil artwork before (and even small ones take forever! It’s the layering…) and even better (worse), on black paper which I’ve never tried either. BUT I ended up learning a lot, despite the stress (and aching neck). I do like how it turned out and I’m pleased that I tried something new!
(If anyone wants to know the materials: Arteza 120pc Coloured Pencils + Faber-Castell Mixed Media Pad in Black + Galaxy Colours Handmade Metallic Watercolours – I’m not sure of the exact colour as it was an unnamed freebie, but I’m guessing it’s ‘Golden Star’)
Wow, it’s been an entire month since my last post on here… I’m sorry I’ve been so absent, between my PhD application, starting my new jobs, researching for prints and art commissions and a whole bunch of other things, I’ve just been too tired the past few weeks to write or read much. Last week was especially exhausting. I’m hoping I can use this week(end) to recalibrate and get back to blogging! Hopefully my review of ‘Iron Widow’ will be up in a few days…
