I barely have anything to post about this month, as I've actually been working or stressing over my driving test. (which I passed ^_^)
I still haven't finished that Carrie drawing, but this is where it's at at the moment. I can spend hours on it and it'll look EXACTLY the same.
I've also started a new needle felt project. ^_^ I loved making little felted hover boards, so I wanted to try and keep a theme going on. Which is apparently fictional transport! (because hover boards are still fictional. If you can see the wheels ITS NOT HOVERING)
I think I'm going to end up embroidering this more than felting, the pattern is so pretty, I dont wanna make it too simple! Still at the beginning stage, but so far I've drawn a rough sketch on the pattern, then attempted to make it a bit simpler..
Then painted the simpler design with water colours, because whyyyyy not. My hand was a bit twitchy while painting the background colour so I'll probably ink the outline to make it look a bit less of a mess.
If I actually get to the stage of making it I wanna put wire in the middle so it can be put into different poses. ^_^
After the last post I was quite productive, until my laptop crashed, hard drive failed and I lost everything. So this month I've been a few bad things away from a break down, so I haven't got a lot to show ya!
It was one of my faves (and fellow Back to the Future fan) birthday this month, so I made him a little felted hoverboard. ^_^ Third one I've made, and probably the neatest one! yay for improvement?
Update on the Carrie drawing. Still not finished.
I've put so many hours into this and it doesn't even feel close to finished!
Hopefully next post it'll be done. ^_^
Life update: Went to Bristol Aquarium. Saw Turtles. Check it outttt.
SO it's the 13th so here's another post! The only thing I've done that's blog worthy is go to Scotland, where the plan was to do spend the majority of my time drawing. But ya know what, it's really hard to draw outside when its crazy windy or raining.
I'll try to make next months post a bit more exciting, promise.
(Below: Loch Lomond)
(Below: Eilean Donan Castle. Man I love castles.)
(I think these were quick sketches from outside my window in Skye?)
("Anything off the trolley dear?" Took a train that went over the Glenfinnan Viaduct ^_^)
(Below- Found the Loch Blez Monster.)
So this day we unknowingly went to two locations that were used in Stardust. The Quiraing and the Fairy Glen.
Literally the prettiest place I've ever been to.
Coral beaches are the best kind of beaches.
Alnwick Castle/Actual Hogwarts. ^_^
I think I fell in love with Edinburgh and their Museum.
(I think I was trying to copy the dinosaur?)
I'll try to do some decent drawings from the thousands of photos we took at some point.
