52 Week Art Challenge: Week 10

Week 10 finished art for my 52 week art challenge. I love humming birds so much. 🌸 They are beautiful and really funny to watch interact with each other. We have lots of them that live near by and they are always zipping around and chirping at me. They zoom around me in circles, probably warning me to move on, but I can't help but laugh. They are fiercely territorial and will fight off anyone that gets in the way of their next meal, you know, in the cutest/tiniest way possible. For such small birds, they sure do have the courage of lions.

I created this week's art first with a sketch on paper then I inked the design with a Micron pen, as usual. After that I digitally painted the design with the Procreate app on my iPad. From there I took the piece into photoshop to adjust the layout and do the finishing touches. I love this one so much. It's going to be added to my spoonflower shop very soon.

52 Week Art Challenge: Week 1

My week 1 challenge is complete and I am absolutely blown away by the response I've been receiving on Instagram. We have tons of artists and designers taking part in this challenge. I'm so excited to be hosting it and cannot wait to see what you've all created. If you haven't joined us yet, we'd love to have you. You can read all about it right here. 


To tell you a little about how I approached this week's assignment, I always start with a drawing in my sketchbook. This week I drew in pencil and inked over it using Micron pens.

One of my goals for 2016 is to expand into hand painted art, so for this challenge I decided to hand paint this piece on my iPad using the Procreate app. It was $5.99 and worth every penny. I just recently purchased this app, so it's been a bit of a learning curve, however, its very easy to use once you get comfortable with it. Plus its a ton of fun. I love hand painted work, but I also love an undo button. So digital painting really seemed like a great place for me to start. When I was done in Procreate, I finished it up on the computer with Photoshop.
