Some art

I made this a while ago for my friend's birthday but was waiting until she got it before posting it online.
As we were going to Disneyland for her birthday I thought it would be good to make her a character sheet of her own.

And this is someone else's character, but I liked her so much I did some fan art. Elle belongs to this lovely lady.

Finished cast

So a while ago I mentioned I went on a casting course, but with Christmas in the way it was a long wait until we had a chance to finish.
But on Thursday we managed to do a whole, lovely day where we finished our clay moulds, cast them and played with a lot of materials.
Here are the results.

He is odd looking but sort of lovely. I wanted him to be a misunderstood monster. I used my own face cast as a base. Not entirely sure where this came from to be honest, but I like him. Still got to paint him but then I'll have finished.

Day 9

Favourite TV show.

It's Doctor Who of course! 

Yes I'm more into Tennant as the Doctor, but you know Smith isn't half bad. Also... he's more fun to draw. Should have put him in a Fez... never mind. 
It was between this and the first series of Misfits.

Day 8

Favourite Animated Character. 

 I couldn't choose between Balto or Hazel from Watership Down. Balto as he was pretty much my entire inspiration when I was younger. And Hazel because he was such a brilliant fatherly character. Also I cry like a baby when this comes on....

Day 7

Favourite Word.

An odd one, I have always liked the word bubble. I like how it sits in your mouth like an actual bubble before you blow it out into the world. How lovely.

Day 6

Favourite Book Characters (that couldn't be in a film). 

This was annoyingly difficult because I have loads of favourite characters but alot of my fav books have been made into films. (Some of them completely disasterous). So I chose 'The Suitcase Kid' as it influenced my collection of sylvanians. And I have a signed copy of the book.

Day 5

Best friend.
I am lucky enough to have 4 best friends. I hope they forgive me for attempting to caricature them. I have never done it before and thought, hey! Let's give it a go! Turns out... not that good. But there you go. You live and you learn.

Lily Rae, Niomi Argyle, Cheryl Ramage and Becky Jeffries.
(I would like to point out that all these lovely ladies are beautiful beyond belief in real life.)

Day 4 - Favourite Place

It has to be our Uisken Bay where I have gone ever year to camp since I was about 2-3. Defiantly haven't done it any justice as 1. I am bad at landscapes and 2. I did this entirely from memory. I was sort of going for a fantasy map type thing. Fairly sure I haven't pulled it off to be honest. But never mind. On to day 5.

30 day challenge

Niomi suggested that we do this challenge to help us get back into drawing after the Christmas break.
Day 1 - Yourself

Apologies for the awful handwriting. I defiantly need to work on my typography.
