I don't fit in, and that's ok.

is that some kind of tin?

Ester said...

no, I drew pen on my sketchbook page, and then outlined it with black india ink, painting the entire page. I think the sides of the sketchbook pages below are what you're seeing (at the top - kind of like a shiny, rounded surface)

yeah, i definitely thought it was something else, but like buffed to not be reflective... great drawing too. i can't wait til i can draw relatively quickly

Hey Ester, it's always a pleasure catching up with your work here. The warthog stuff is excellent, especially the oil painting. The bunnies are, excuse the term, way cute--a side of your work I don't see often.

I dont like this one in particular ,but the hog one with the two people in there is very well done ,how those colors blend in with the pencil?(is it pencil?)
I prefer the Africano as well,anyway um go by my Blog,yes I'm asking you to cause nobody is leaving a damn comment and Im getting bored of it (hey that sounded like a verse of a rap,no actually it didn't...I've embarrassed myself,and I dont like rap, I better leave..........

lol

cute bunnies are a rarity in my sketchbooks, for sure.

sebastian-that is pencil, and it's smeared into the colored ink with my finger, so that's how it's blended.

I thought this was the cover of the sketchbook. Figured you'd finished off another one. Great. I like the bunnies as well. Where did the warthogs come from?

:)=

Ester said...

well thanks for the compliment Kevin, sadly, no my book isn't finished yet. Painting has slowed me from getting sketchbooks finished fast.

The warthogs were a commissioned painting project that sold today. I was approached via email from someone who had seen my work from this blog.

I like the angle from above and behind. You don't see that much. I wonder if that might be the "guardian angel" perspective...
