Cutesy commissions

Having a wonderful time sketching from THE cutest toddler photos ever!

My Nephew and Niece who are having a baby in October, wanted a special portrait for the baby’s nursery.  Inspiration has never been easier with the photos they’ve supplied !  I’ve started a few initial pencil sketches, and I’ll be painting it onto a canvas eventually.   I’d really like to put them both into the one painting … along with some very cute extra’s….!

I hope it all comes together as perfect as I have envisaged the final piece in my minds eye!  How adorable outta 10 are these baby photos below!! <3 <3

Orange is the new Black

Orange is the new Black

Well shit… I’ve just discovered yet another fabo TV show, (just about done with Suits, Harvey ReOw!) and so there goes all my free time, drawing and painting until I get through this first season!  Black humor, fantastic acting, stories and lesbo action for something different haha.  Check it OWWT!

The Tattooed Lady

The Tattooed Lady

Having some more fun with Photoshop.  I’ve always liked dabbling, but after seeing what that guy ReplaceFace has done, I thought I’d step it up a little.  I can see a complete series occuring and it all becoming quite addictive!!

Here’s the first one – myself as the Tattooed Lady – in a full swing “Carnie Folk” feel.  I couldnt quite get the angle of my face quite right, but hey… gotta start some where!

If you have any idea’s or images to add to – let me know and I’ll give it a go!

Celebrities as neoclassics

Celebrities as neoclassics

Let’s face it, everyone has a favourite celeb, who to them is just their hero of all time.  Well a VERY clever artist has gone ahead and created a neoclassic styled image of  some the true greats, turning them into a heroic styled images.  (I’m sure they love it also!)

Steve Payne is the name behind these images, going by the artist name of “ReplaceFace” –  and by using the images of Russian Generals (originally painted by George Dawe during the period of Napoleons invasion) he has very cleverly  replaced these General’s faces/heads with some choice celebrity faces… the results are quite beautiful.

Check his work out at: http://replaceface.tumblr.com/ – where you can also buy them as a print or even an iphone cover at Society6.

Anyhow, here are just a few of my own personal  favourites that I’ve grabbed from his site, so please check his site for loads more.

I’ve also added a few of my own Photoshop alterations for fun.  These are just a smattering of what I’ve done myself over the years, (no where as good as his, der!) mainly for  friends who have well and truly deserved having their ‘mugs’ placed on some very obvious celeb bodies for fun.   Always gets a big laugh, and hey it’s a great way to polish up your Photoshop skillz! 😉

 

 

Ride a Random Rainbow Pony

Ride a Random Rainbow Pony

I’ve downloaded and actually paid for the pro version of this app.  It’s an a very cool drawing product for tablets, and I’m basically using it all the time now when sketching on my Samsung tablet 10.0.  Sketchbook Pro for Android

So many more features than the free version…. well worth the investment!

And the following song seems to go with it in my mind. =)
