Hope you are doing well and feeling refreshed after the weekend.
I am very happy to share with you another one of my digital stamps which you can download for free from the freebies section here. ‘Vigilante’ is inspired by the TV series ‘Arrow’. So I dedicate it to all the Arrow fans out there 🙂 🙂 I wanted to come up with a female version of this character! Enjoy this new stamp and I encourage you to be creative and use it in original ways as part of your cards and crafts 🙂
I coloured the image with Prismacolor pencils but this time I didn’t use the odorless solvent. I just used the pencils on their own as I wanted a bolder effect to bring out the dark and nocturnal characteristics that surround the vigilante. If you have a look at the digi you might also notice that the face appears wider than the one in my coloured version (in reality it is not!). That is done on purpose to allow for heavy shadows around the face since the hood casts a lot of dark shadow so you would need to use dark colours sparingly in this area. For my coloured version I used the no-line technique which eliminates the dark outline around the image.
I hope you will enjoy it and please share it with your friends. I wish you all a very good week 🙂
Today I am happy to be sharing with you another whimsical character from the Biskuttina range. How many times have we wished to possess the power to extend certain moments forever?! When we are having fun, enjoying our loved ones, or experiencing something beautiful time just flies!
While I was sketching the image for this stamp I was listening to the mesmerizing voice of Josh Groban. I think his voice is so well-suited to interpret prince charming characters and main roles in musicals!! It has a particular sound and quality to it which I find amazing. I particularly love his cover version of the song â€˜For Alwaysâ€™ which you can listen to here. It was part of the inspiration for this concept I was thinking about.
I think subconsciously I included the butterflies as a reminder of Spring which is something I wish for a lot at the momentâ€¦.the sun, the beautiful flowers, the enchanting colours, birds chirpingâ€¦.all these elements make this season the best time of the year and by now I am sort of fed up of Winter and looking forward to a bit of changeâ€¦so Spring I welcome you with open arms!
I hope you like the image. You can find it in my shop here.
Here I coloured it for reference using Prismacolor pencils together with an odorless solvent. Someday Iâ€™ll be writing a little bit about Prismacolor pencils which have become a treasured possession in my studio 🙂
I leave you by wishing you many moments where time just flies!!
Today I’ve got something different for you! I’ve got a video showing a mixed media painting in progress where I used the ‘So Sorry’ image from the new range.
As part of my studies I have to reflect on my creative process as an artist and I thought of this small project to help me situate my thoughts and reflections. It is a very interesting experience to stop and reflect on how you work and it has been an enriching opportunity for me. So then I thought to share it with you as well 🙂 I hope that it will inspire you to try out something new 🙂
I hope you like it 🙂 Feel free to contact me should you have any questions or feedback.
I want to say a big thanks for all your greetings and comments on the new Biskuttina range of digistamps. I enjoyed reading each and every comment!! Thanks a lot for your feedback 🙂 It means a lot to have all this caring support.
I present to you another character from this new range!! It is called ‘So Sorry‘ which you can find in the shop here. Sorry – one of the hardest and most powerful words in our vocabulary. I really hope that during this coming new year we would find it a bit easier to use it and say it to the people we love and care about.
On a lighter note, at this time of year, we might like to dedicate this drawing (and its message) to ourselves to mark the epic moment when we step on the bathroom scale to get a reality check . . . ‘So Sorry‘ for not saying no to all those goodies 🙂 🙂 If this is the case you’re certainly not alone 🙂 We’ll get back on track as soon as our cupboards are emptied of all the good stuff 🙂
Wishing you all a happy New Year and may you be blessed with health, peace, love and happiness!
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! I really wish you have an enjoyable festive season, including good times with family and friends and opportunities to make a difference in other people’s lives.
I want to thank you for your support during the past year! You are such a great bunch! Penny Blossom’s first birthday is coming up in January and to celebrate this I am launching a new line of digistamps called ‘Biskuttina’ (pronounced Bis-coot-tina). I am happy to present to you the first two digis. The first one, called ‘Kissable’, is my Christmas gift to you. You can download it from the freebies page! Enjoy 🙂
The other digistamp (‘A Little Gift’) is inspired from the beautiful, yet sad story of ‘The Little Match Girl‘. You can find it in the shop here. Sometimes in life you meet amazing people who are ready to give you a lot from the little they have! It is amazing how many big hearts are out there! And we can all learn from these people. We can all make a difference even if small! So many lives can be improved by sharing our ‘Little Gifts’.
I hope you enjoy these drawings 🙂 Feel free to send me your feedback. Here I used the no-line technique which I really love because it gives a particular whimsical look to digis and I also feel that coloured images become more of a complete artwork. I coloured the characters with Prismacolor pencils together with an odourless solvent.
I wish you all the very best and may you have a peaceful Christmas!!
