I've always dreamed of a silly little birthday party out in the woods, with mystical, magical attendees. Maybe it's just too many readings of Alice in Wonderland, or perhaps too much time spent on my own in the backyard as an only child. Either way, I'm definitely crossing my fingers for this ridiculous party for my birthday this year. I created this piece for Siren Nation's Celebration show last year, and I had so much fun coloring it in, I wanted to share the joy. If you want to see how I colored it, you can find prints and cards...
I took part in Inktober again this year, and it was a blast! Many of my drawings were witch-themed, and I thought they'd make fun, Halloween-y coloring pages. You can see all my posts on my Instagram. Files:• Download the Witch in a Faerie Ring coloring page here (PDF) - prints on 8.5" x 11" paper• Use regular printer paper or cardstock. You can even experiment with printing onto art papers to try some different coloring techniques.
In my quest to "find my style," I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out what I do and don't like in my drawings. One thing I've discovered I like a lot is the sketchy graphite linework in my initial thumbnail sketches, so I'm trying to find ways to bring that into my finished work.
I recently discovered an easier way to bring that into digital work, so I put together a tutorial to share it with you.
