Country Chic Wedding Campaign

Recently I designed programs for a Country Chic wedding. Sadly they aren’t needed for the wedding. Still I think as a whole the Country Chic Campaign (save the date cards, programs, RSVP cards, and invitations) turned out beautifully so I wanted to share.

Less is More Creed and a Smurf

Well I think I am done. I always reach a point on a drawing where I have to step back and realize if I do too much more I will destroy the beauty I created. Hence the less is more creed, it does hold true more often than not. Still I am not going to hold my breath, I don’t think I could pull off the smurf look. Besides its my customer who makes the final call so I am hoping my customer likes it as much as I do. Once its approved I will sign it and I will post one final update on Renna. I will try to move through my process and provide some tips on drawing a portrait and/or working with this particular media.

Precious

I am really excited that I have this portrait almost done. I know I have some more tweaking to do here and there, but it is getting really close. One of my biggest challenges is to make sure I don’t get too much detail going on in her shirt, but enough to show its there and allow the baby to pop.

I am a little sad to be getting ready to saying good bye to this sweet little face and not seeing her beautiful smile as I work daily; so precious. What do you think?

“Oh my goodness you have hair”

So here’s the latest portrait update. I am starting to render in the hair and clothes. I am just awe struck, she is coming to life before my eyes.

Crazy Time, Sharpening Frustrations, & Bracket Madness

Its been a crazy week. I have barely had time to work on my current project til today. I am still excited at where its going. I have to say this drawing is the highlight to my week and of course my new sewing machine. I am still struggling with soft pencils and my sharpener, I think it is sanding one side down more than another… not exactly sure why. So hoping I won’t be needing a new one. If anyone has suggestions it would be much appreciated. I feel like crying when I lose a pencil due to faulty equipment—just so frustrating.

The low note, bracket-wise Wichita State lost…. Sad to say the least. And even Kansas State lost today. The upsets are making things interesting (with so many #2s losing out).

Hope I get some more drawing time in tomorrow.

Highlights and Sandpaper

I can’t believe how much I was able to do this past weekend. Sadly I did have a white charcoal pencil decide to disintegrate, luckily the others are staying solid. I have started trying to use sandpaper on the really soft pencils to get my point, when the pencil sharpener seems like overkill. Overall I think its really starting to come together and you can see her personality coming through. I have included my reference with the portrait update this time.
