How Have You Been?
I’m doing pretty good right now
It has been a crazy first half of the year (or 7-8 months really).
My husband and I were on the verge of divorce.
I haven’t been myself at all.
I felt like I was having a mid-life crisis, and maybe I have been.
I no longer know who I am, or where I fit in the world.
But also, and maybe more importantly, I was tired of being unappreciated.
My husband gets it and is working on it and has shown me that he gets it by making changes.
So I’m sticking it through, I’m hanging in there.
And I’m giving myself some much needed attention as well.
I started therapy a month ago and it’s been helping.
Things have settled down.
Thank you so much to everyone who has been hanging in there with me while I go through all this personal drama.
You are seriously the best!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3
Hopefully the new releases this week have made your patience totally worth it ;)
Without further adieu…
Lahla Mermaid Lei
Lahla Mermaid Lei is the first mermaid of the season =)
Who’s ready for a swim??
This flowy hair is a fun challenge and I took it up a notch with some colorful ombre too.
I love how it came out – what do you think?
The Copics I used in her tail:
BG49 | BG05 | BG53 | YG03 | YG21 | G00
I colored the whole tail with G00, then I stippled the colors in from light to dark, right to left, overlapping each to create the gradient effect.
Fae Wolf is something I’ve been itching to draw for a very long time.
The faery and wolf combination represents myself and my husband.
Faeries have always been my ‘spirit creature’ and wolves have always been his.
But after I drew it, I knew the pose was not “us”, so a true representation of us will have to be drawn still.
For now, I hope you enjoy this.
I had a lot of fun coloring it!
The Copics I used for the “gray wolf” fur:
W7 | W5 | W3 | E33 | W0
I started by covering the wolf in W0.
Then I went in with W3 and added little flicks in all the areas where I wanted the darkest fur to eventually be.
Then I went in with W5 and added more small flicks in the area I defined with the W3.
I did the same with E33 and followed with W7, adding more small flicks to finish up the darkest areas of the wolf’s fur.
Next, I texturized the lighter areas with a little E33 in small flicks and finished up with small flicks of W3.
Lastly, I added some white along the perimeter with a white gel pen.
Raglan Roxie is just a simple little digi that should be a pretty easy color – great for ‘warming up’ and wonderful for projects that need versatility.
