Diary 2011 Project -June-13

Diary 2011 Project -June-13
Originally uploaded by Rainbowz Art

My second page for the Diary 2011 project has now been submitted. It has been created around pen and ink panda doodles and worked in Photoshop create the final page.

Pandas, although very distinctive, can be deceptively difficult to draw. I was very reliably informed that previous attempts ended up looking more like teddy bears or badgers. By working in a stlye akin to an ink doodle I hope the result appears casual and childlike. Something that will, at least, make the person it was created for smile. :)

Redesign and Diary 2011 Project

Well, seeing that I took the time to have a little bit of a change about on my blog page I thought I should really put up a new post as well.

In terms of arty suff my main focus over the past few days was to complete my submission for the Diary 2011 Project .

I am so pleased to be part of this project, there are some wonderful artists taking part. I think the finished product is going to be far to nice too write in!  Ah well - another lovely book to be kept for best. I seem to be building up somewhat of a collection!!

My page date was 23 October to be illustrated 8" x 3" greyscale.  I chose to rework of a piece I did a number of years ago trying to weave in an autumnal feel to the illustration. Did it work? I hope so - what do you think?

I am delighted to say that I have the opportunity to submit a second page. I am working on this now - the date 13 June. My little darling's birthday so something to do with a panda could therefore be a fairly safe bet ♥♥
