Inking practice




I got some ink pens the other day... so, using my thumbnail sketches from my Christmas card giveaway, I decided to practice using inking traditionally!

It's been a hundred years since I last used India ink to do anything (and even then, I was just messing around for school) so I'm pretty.... not pro. Lol. Gotta keep practicing!!

Merry Christmas, Rose Tyler.




Double whammy! I needed to get something out for Christmas, and I just hit my 50 follower (actually, 51!) mark on Tumblr!!

I am THRILLED. And, since I know that a lot of it came because of the Roski family, I had to do up some Roski! So here we go!

It was a reasonably quick piece, but I'm happy with it for now!

Merry Christmas everyone!! And thank you so much for all the love and support. It means the world to me.

Ah, Christmas.

The time-thief of a holiday. But I love it, so there we go.




Did this up yesterday for Molly's (/my second!) mum! I hope she likes it!!! <3 p="p">
I'm going to do my best to update again this weekend.. but no promises! Sorry this month has been so lacking. I really have done a ton of stuff! I just can't post most of it, haha!

Christmas cards..

Sorry about last week! I was busy working on Christmas Cards!

For those who follow me on tumblr, I started a Christmas card giveaway. I limited it to 10 people (I have a billion other things to do!) and have been working away on that!

Since I don't want to post the sketches I've been doing in the cards... I'm just gonna leave this update for now!

The Noble Beast



A friend of mine on Tumblr, Ruby, was having a sad night.. so I quickly sketched something for her! I haven't done anything Noble Beast (Donna Noble x Bruce Banner), but I've been meaning to. So here it is!

Considering I sketched this out pretty quick, I'm actually kinda happy with how it turned out! I hope she likes it!!

~Ginny

Frosty Love




Guys... I have no idea. I was looking up blue colour schemes and back lighting.. and a Tron picture showed up and I said, "hey, let's give this a go."

Bam. (?)

I'm leaving the full version for download in case anyone wants a wallpaper? Lol.

Happy First Birthday!!



Hey everyone! Ginny here! For those who don't know, I'm Molly's behind-the-scenes helper!


Last week (October 21st) was Molly's Mixing Bowl's first birthday!! I thought that deserved a little celebration, congratulations and thanks all around!


So, thank you goes out to all MMB's wonderful supporters! MMB could not have had such a successful year without all of you!

And a big congratulations to Molly for all her hard work, passion and dedication! You've done truly amazing things in such a short time!!


Thanks again everyone and here's to another great year!!!

Food post!

I know I don't normally do this, but unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, I don't have any art to post this week!

So... Cupcakes! I'm taking a cake decorating class currently, so it's just some practice! Need to get better!!

Now, I'm off to Niagara Falls for the weekend! I'll try to update with something from the hotel, but no promises!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Art Demo!

So I was hired, thanks to Gary Chapple, to do an art demo at a budding artist's birthday party today!

I stressed all week about making a nice lesson plan so that the kids would have fun, drew up some random sketches and a little how-to page.. the whole she-bang. Within 20 minutes my lesson plan was out the window! Lol But in a good way!

I did lots of little things for the kids, portraits, characters, random things... I even drew Justin Bieber, which was definitely a new experience for me! But the girl I drew it for was very happy and said she'd hang it up on her wall.. so that makes me happy!!

So yes! It all went very well and the girls seemed to have a great time! It was awesome to see such an enthusiastic group of young budding artists (There was actually a Doctor Who fan in the group too!)!




One of the pages I gave to the kids. Wanted random things they could reference from different things that the birthday girl and I both liked. Most of them are just 30 second sketches. No more than a minute each. Wanted to keep the pace going!

You're a star!



I appear to have been on a roll this weekend! It's lovely! I've managed to get some things off of my to-do list!!

BUT! I have a number of little projects coming up within the next week or so, plus I'm going away on the 26th... so I will have to pull up my socks and get on it!

The one that started it all!




THIS has been a long time coming! It was my first Roski image, the one that allowed me to get to know all the lovely peeps in the Roski fandom (seriously, I want to be friends with all of them but am far too shy!)

I originally had a green and gold theme with it.. but it just wasn't working for me ... so I went more... frosty!

Something sexy this way comes...



This was a request from a friend! She just asked for something sexy... so I went off and did a pinup version of her. The Halloween theme is because it's a) coming up and b) her favourite holiday!

Wedding gift...




A wedding gift for two important friends of mine (http://stopwithoutafarmhousenear.tumblr.com)! They got married last month and I just had to do something for them.

SO! I decided to use one of their cosplay photos of them as 11 and Idris from Doctor Who and make it all… timey-wimey spacey-wacey! :D

I’m very very happy with how it came out.. especially the colours. I really hope they like it as well!!

Congratulations, guys! Love you both very much and wish you all the best.



(...Of course, upon uploading it, I realized I failed to turn on a layer when I had the file printed. D'oh. Sent the couple a fixed version though!)

You Ain't in Gotham Anymore, Bub.




Another commission!

This time I was asked to do a picture of the client's friend as Wolverine (hence tattoos) facing off against Batman! With a few other personal touches for the friend as well. :)

This took a lot longer than I had thought it would-- it was very challenging! Basically, everything that gives me trouble all rolled into one piece, lol. BUT! I like a good challenge, so I'm pleased with how it came out! And the client is happy too, so even better!!

Eep.

Life. Things. Excuses. Now art!


"R-Rose? What are you doing? We need to figure out how--"

"I just want to try something first."

Roski time! Man, it feels like forever since I got a chance to do anything Roski!!

More to come... hopefully tomorrow!

Next in the series...




... is Rose Tyler!

It had to be. She's my favourite, along with Donna. Will try to do her next. This week is going to be a crazy one, so we'll see!!

Stickers are available at my RedBubble account!

Commission!

Here it is!

It was an unusual request! I don't normally draw animals, which was a bit of a challenge... but I think I did okay! Plus, the client and the person (a friend of mine) he was giving it to both loved it! So I'm very happy!!

Mrs. Pond!

I had a big commission this week! It went over really well... and to treat myself, I did a little fun art!

I'll post the commission a little later too!

Alexis!




Alexis!

Alexis is a tribute to the strong women in my life. She’s a mixture of my sister, my best friend and another close friend of mine. Except she sleeps with a lot of men. Because there will be sex of some description in this comic. 

Side note: I was playing with colour on this one. And managed to turn her into a frost giant. I’m okay with this.

A little practice goes a LONG way....

... which is something I'm going to need to do, haha.

THIS was my first attempt at using my new Copic markers. I only have a few, so my colour choices were limited (hence the pink dress). It didn't go well. But that's okay. I learned a lot about blending the colours and can't WAIT to try something new (on better paper too. I was just messing around on regular old printer paper)

Serenity in the Garden


Princess Serenity!


This is an oooold drawing. Like, a whole YEAR old (*gasp*). So I really debated on whether or not to colour/post it. I take comfort in the fact that I can see where I’ve improved. That said, I still liked the picture itself… and since Sailor Moon is one of my favourites, and has had a massive impact on my art life, I couldn’t leave it anymore!


I went with manga colour hair (I have a slight fetish for white and pink hair) but the is more true to the anime. Oh well.

Fan Expo is over...


And that's about how I felt last night, hahaha.

The whole thing was really fun! And I got some fantastic advice on putting myself out there! So here's to a successful upcoming year!

Almost forgot!

I actually finished this a couple days ago.. but....!

Sherlock! Yay!!

Also! It's that time of the year again: Fan Expo weekend! So, I'll be quiet for the rest of the week most likely.

I'm so excited though! I hope this weekend goes well! Wish me luck!
