Baby Mint Fairy

In the Sketchbook Project Journal it said: 
"Deep inside the center of the earth there is a tiny..."

I imagined there is a tiny baby mint fairy 
playing a magical glass flute 
which emanates colourful floating musical lava.

Ballpoint pen and watercolours.

ALSO! Remember I promised a TUMBLR?
Here it is! Follow me! ;D

My brother is awesome at solving Rubik cubes.
I hope he teaches me to solve them some day :)

When we were kids

But to be honest, I don't think I'll ever grow out of them...

Foot Notes / That Book Has No Spine

This is another page from the Sketchbook Project Journal.

I drew the character at the bottom as a different interpretation of "Foot notes" because I didn't just want to make foot notes on the page. The drawing at the back is for the phrase "That book has no spine". The first thing that came to mind was scattered pages all over the floor, but the idea of drawing a person without a spine seemed more interesting than a bunch of papers on the floor. Then I decided to go with that, a "book person", with no spine. It would give me the chance to make it a little visceral and grotesque, having bones penetrating the skin. I didn't plan the layout properly because I was just having fun. But If I re-did the whole thing, I would fix the perspective and have the sizes fixed to make it look like a spineless giant fell from the sky into a desert, and have the kid close. I would fix the lights (because they're all over the place at the moment), and I would add blood coming from the giant's injuries.

I want to refine my painting skills before re-doing anything... so I may eventually get  to doing such a thing :)

I drew this with a ballpoint pen, then painted it with different skin-tone markers, added some extra lights with acrylic, extra shadows with black prismacolor, faded in the tones at the back with a thin layer of water-dissolved white acrylic and fixed the image quality and added a slightly transparent gradient color layer in Photoshop.

New Books Smell Good

I bought 
"The Sketchbook Project Journal: 
More than 300 Ways to Fill a Page "
from The Sketchbook Project
(more info at http://www.sketchbookproject.com/)

Every page contains some lines 
to inspire you to draw something on them.

This baby was doodled on said journal. 
It's been fun so far filling up the pages!
