Mousey Mousey!

Here are a couple of little mousey watercolours I played with the other day! They didn't turn out too bad considering I hardly touch my watercolours! In fact I might entertain the idea of doing a few more!
The trouble with me is that I enjoy exploring different mediums. (Oh to have a distinctive style of my very own........maybe one day..sniff!)
Anyway hope you like them..... maybe I should vow to do my next few Illustration Friday posts in watercolour!
Cheerio! Jen

Double - Illustration Friday

Well here's my little sketch for this week's Illustration Friday topic, DOUBLE. Maybe a little tenuous but I've gone for the possibility of a DOUBLE date! The two doggies could be about to fall in love? ....maybe!
I seem to be favouring pencil work at the moment but that's not a bad thing!
I've had a bad tummy the last few days so I'm hoping that's going to improve..... not nice at all...... no!
Have a great week peeps! Jen

The elves and the shoemaker

Here's a little sketch of an elf industriously stitching together a beautiful new shoe. His nimble fingers work quick as a flash to produce the neat little stitches for the shoe. And here are a pair of elfin or fae slippers. Although please don't look too closely at the stitching as my fingers are nowhere near as nimble and neat! Hee Hee.

BREAKFAST - Illustration Friday

Look's like someone can't wait to dig into their breakfast! Just a really quick one for this week's Illustration Friday topic, BREAKFAST. A simple line drawing, imported into Photoshop and coloured/textured. Will hopefully be able to muster something a little more substantial in the next day or two... I'll add it to this post.
Here you go I promised something more substantial...... and here it is........ it's a monster breakfast! Now I always wondered if a Monster Breakfast was for monsters or just as big as a monster?!! Well in this pic I guess it's both!! Hope you like him?!

Cheerio my dears! Jen

Diary - Illustration Friday

Well here is a possible take on this week's Illustration Friday topic, DIARY. The first thing I thought of was the Adrian Mole books 'The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4 ' by Sue Townsend.
I didn't want to be so obvious as to take the literal version so I did a sketch of the real Adrian the mole and his not so secret diary! Haven't had much time this week so as yet not colour has been played with to adorn him and his furry and feathered friends. Although sometimes I think it's good to see images in their early stages..... just to see how they are transformed into their final states...... am I waffling?!..... er probably...... anyway.... below is another take on the DIARY theme. A young man seems intent on spilling his thoughts out to his diary.... I guess he looks a little like the young Harry Potter so maybe this could be Tom Riddles Diary from the Chamber of Secrets book? (although Harry's room looks a little too normal to be Hogworts.... mmm could maybe change the background a little?......
Anyway folks have to scoot.
Have a fantastic week! Jen

Giant - Illustration Friday

Here's my post for this week's Illustration Friday topic, GIANT!
Initially I started sketching your common or garden giant but then the idea of perhaps drawing a giant genie came to mind so I went with that idea. Thus the young man (possibly Aladdin) has done his bit and rubbed the magic lamp and voila the huge genie appears!
Hope you like it.... have a fun week!
Bye for now. Jen
