Another faitytale step



I've been working a lot on the drawing the past 2 days, thought I would reveal a few more parts of the drawing.
It's really taken a lot of time. Colour pencil is such a slow medium to work with but I love it at the same time because of the many little details you can draw.
I am hoping to finish it over the weekend.
Speaking of weekend - have a great one! Mine will be spend at home, hopefully sick-free and with my pencils, love and a bit of sunshine :)

And again

Once again I was lucky and caught something, this time a 3 day thing making me throw up and not being able to eat. Last weekend was horrible, I'd take a double migraine at it's worse over this. Finally started to eat normal food again and almost enjoyed it.
Enough about sickness though, I'd rather tell you about how much I look forward to spring! I was talking to Ralf a few days back about how close we actually are to the spring here in Denmark. In about a month the birds will start singing much more and slowly everything will start to blossom and be beautiful and new again. And in 3 months time I will be going to the beach, I've missed swimming so much =)
There's no words to describe how much I look forward to it. I've pretty much been sick since the beginning of the year, if it wasn't a flu it was a bad cold. Aside from my migraine I am rarely sick so this was indeed something very new for me to waste so much time doing barely anything. Good thing I don't do New Years resolutions, otherwise I would be seriously behind by now ;)

I haven't been very productive this year so far. I don't really mind much as I feel the few pieces I have done have been some that I am proud of and something I learned from.

Yesterday I finally started a new piece. It has a bit of nature, fairytale and lots of details. It will probably drive me crazy before I am even half way through but I am very into it still so it should be enough to keep me going.
Here's a little preview of parts of it.

A dream of love


I made it just in time ^^

This is my Valentine drawing this year. This time of the year is special for me as I met my boyfriend around this time in 2006. So for me it represents love and the time of butterflies ♥

I've been working on this drawing a very long time. The inspiration for this drawing came when I saw the pretty girl: link and I immediately knew I wanted to use her for a heart/love themed drawing. I wanted that sensual and sweet expression to show.
As I want to challenge myself this year and adding something a bit antique I drew the steel swirls. I somehow found it fitting for the theme.

All in all I am pleased with this drawing. The dream of love, for better and for worse.

Thanks to the beautiful model.

Colour pencils, Lana sketching paper.
(27x37cm | 9x14")

Sleeping with Homer + LE Keyring


Tonight I am sleeping with Homer ;) In Denmark you often find The Simpsons related stuff like t-shirt, underwear and socks around Valentine's Day and I really love it. I often gift my boyfriend but this year I felt it was time to gift myself, as this one was simply too cute and really soft, perfect for sleeping in =)

I've also just released a Limited Edition Love Keyring on my webshop, lots of red and hearts :)

Finally!

Finally things are looking up. After another week being badly ill I seem to be a bit better now. I am still half deaf on one ear, like I'm in a bubble - you probably know the feeling after a bad cold. However, I am up from my bed and can do stuff again. I can't believe I managed to be ill 3 out of 4 weeks in January, what are the chances!?
Oh well, past days I've been catching up with what's been waiting to get done.

I created a few new bookmarks, which you can see here:



All are available through my shop:
http://zindy-zone.dk/openosc/index.php?cPath=55

I did a bit of shopping on Ebay while I was sick in bed and I can't wait to show you what new products will come with my drawings. Hopefully it will be good. Meaning; if I can actually create them without messing it up. Hope you are curious now :P

I can't wait to get started on February and hopefully I've had my dose of sickness this year!
