Kitty and Bear - The Middle Of Nowhere

Just thought I'd show how I did my kitty and bear piece as I re-did it today. First attempt went wrong when I smudged ink on it but that can just be my client visual... :p
First I measured the paper up so my tree could be in the middle.

 Masking tape to stop the ink running too far.
Painted the trunk.

Then made a puddle of ink at the top and blew! XD

Drew the ?'s on. You can see the smudges at the bottom of the trunk so I started again from scratch.

Final, final piece. I think I'm done with this project now apart from I did hardly any research so I'll need to do that to get my marks up.

Holly's Antics

Went to sit out with Holly for a bit today because it was super sunny and she likes company whilst bird watching. 

Then she decided to sprawl out under the exact chair I was sat on so I couldn't actually move. Carefully got out and took some pictures. This is becoming a regular habit.

What I've Been Up To

First of all, this arrived in the post the other day. I absolutely love it. I have already read one of Charles Burns' comics and not only do I love his style of art but he writes the weirdest stories too which is an added bonus. I also ordered another book by him but Waterstone's are having trouble getting hold of it apparently, even though they have it for sale... -_- Anyway, take a look at his work! 
My Jungle Fever print arrived today. It actually came out the right size so I'm chuffed with that.

These are my three final pieces. I'm unhappy with the cuckoo clock because I can't colour, clearly. I will re-do the middle of nowhere piece because it's not perfectly aligned in the centre and this annoys me. But I'm quite happy with Jungle Fever sooo, that project is nearly at an end! Hurrah... 

Also, today I was going to the doctors with my mum in the car and someone went straight into the back of us as we slowed for a mini roundabout. This annoys me because I was supposed to get rejoined with the doctors in my home town after being at Uni and that didn't happen because I went to hospital instead. I had also planned to buy some new pyjamas so I'm quite put out. I'm OK though, unless I have internal bleeding and die. Other than that it's just a sore head. -_-

Maybe I'll draw a new kitty and bear picture to illustrate my frustration.

Jungle Fever

I can't decide whether this is final or not. It feels like it needs something else to it. But I can't think what. D:

The Middle Of Nowhere

I didn't even plan this. But after a day of doing rubbish work I just came up with this and thought I'd just use it as a final piece because I'm getting very annoyed that I haven't done any final pieces yet out of the 6 we have to do by the end of September. But anyway, it for the quote 'The Middle Of Nowhere'. And it features Kitty and Bear. ;)
I edited it so you can see it a bit better...

Monday Morning

Before I bother to colour. Too serious and mardy? I just think it's boring. I think I may have wasted yet another day...

Happy Cat

I found this in an old sketchbook under my bed. I clearly had a cat obsession at this point in time too.

I can't use colour

I can't use colour. I should stick to greyscale. 
I can't really be bothered to draw out all the lines for page size etc again though so this'll have to do. Unless I get a sudden burst of motivation.
