Alice in Artland

Sketchbook page! Work was dead for a good couple of hours today so I doodled a deer on some printer paper to pass the time. Inked with a sharpie and colored with crayons from the hostess stand (target brand.) When I got home I cut him out, stick him in my midtone sketchbook, and then added some extra white highlights with a jelly roll and used sharpie and sigma pens to strengthen the lineart. Will be adding a floral background at some point in the future!
You don’t need expensive supplies to make pretty things :)

My first official animation as an animation student! It’s not perfect, but I’m decently happy with it. Drawn by hand. 

An update and a hello!

Holy poo! I just checked my activity feed and I’ve had 73+ new notes in the past 3 days! It seems my Morgana painting is going through a popularity surge! Thankyou so much to everyone who reblogged it and HELLO! to my new followers! So lovely to have you hereee <33

Just thought I’d post a bit of an update on what’s going on with my life right now and some upcoming projects I’m working on! I’ve officially gone vack to school, this marks the end of my first week. I’m taking an online course in 3D Animation to get my second Bachelors, and I’m SO excited! I’ll be posting bits and pieces of my schoolwork here for you guys to see, so expect that coming up soon! I’m currently travelling again, I’ve been in England since the 28th and I’m here till this Friday, so I’ve been trying to do some more sketching. I’ve been working in a sort of “art journal” type sketchbook and I’m having a lot of fun with it, so I’ll be actually SCANNING (what, alice scanning something and not taking a shitty instagram photo, shock horror!) those in and posting them soon!

I’ve also been really trying to focus on my YouTube channel. I’d really like to upload at least one new video every 2 weeks, and I already have the next one planned out, so I hope you’ll all enjoy that!

Here are some upcoming projects/videos I have planned to keep an eye out for:

- Sketchbook scans!
- Speed watercolor painting of MERIDA!
- The Crayola Challenge
- Another 3 marker challenge (With my copics!)
- Finishing my large watercolor piece I’ve been working on for agessss
- How to Train Your Dragon 2 fanart (ASTRID.)
- Actual COLORED and FINISHED Frozen fanart
- Get my bloody website back up and running!
- about a million other things ;)

Do you guys have any ideas or suggestions that you’d like to see from me? What on this list are you most excited about? I’d love to see your feedback! Do you like my digital work, watercolors, or copics best? Let me know what you’d like to see from me!

New art video is up! Make sure to check out my most recent sketchbook tour, with a little suprise at the end :)
