Sign Man Set 1

Finally out there after much delay but well worth the wait I think. A simple project originally that grew over time. 
Its basically a paper Sign Man character for use with multi purpose media advertising in many lovely poses. This is a simple version with no gradient added. The other versions coming soon.

Oh in case your wondering I didn't place it in the "new artwork" category cause I'm waiting to issue the image with gradients for that. Coming soon of course. 🐱

Classic Tomato Plant Extra

And I'm back. For a bit anyways. Now working hard to trim those bushes in to submission and anything else relating to the yard. (I cut the electrical cord today by mistake) (momentary distracted though) 🙀
Anyways perfect for this time of year, oh wait not summer yet, but almost.  Now out. Actually I made this months ago but now issued. Its an Extra version of the image not the usual vector image although I already issued those, again months ago. Enhanced in PhotoShop because you can't have those FX in a vector.

Coming very soon some new characterized sign men that took me a bit longer then anticipated. But worth the effort I think.

Little Ballet Girl 2 painted up

Now that most of my distractions are taken care of I can post my other painting of the Little Ballet girl. Just as before, painted on canvas in water colour with a bit of acrylic. Painting is 8.5 x11

The original reference


The finished painting.
Close up of face. 

As I said before, a little different as in position and added a sort of a flower arch in the bg but still in keeping in the style of the other one I painted earlier. I was able to make her more prevent this time around since I did not have to make the skirt/dress as wide. 
As before the original owner was very pleased.  🐱

The previous painting. 

And see the previous process that eventually ended up the Little Ballet girl 2 painting.

Classic Tomato plant 2

Now out there Classic Tomato plant 2. Its basically like other one where its based on a tomato plant we had in a blue plastic makeshift pot. Because I had added more details such as gradients, I had to remove most of the detailed background. Otherwise you would have a plant that you really could not see. In other words it looked too busy. But Had I been able to blur the background, then that would have been alright to keep it as is. Must keep it a pure vector after all.

Little Ballet Girl 2 final before painting.

Sorry, got sidetracked as usual. Here's the final before I traced it on to canvas and painted it all up. I had planned up adding a nice flower arch to go in the background. A bit different from the other background but still in keeping with the other painting I did. Still have to add the other drawings to my flicker account. 



 Soooo much to do and yet always someone that adds a wrench in to my plans. 🐱😖

Little Ballet Girl 2 polished drawings

As always here are some polished drawings of the Little Ballet Girl 2 project as I like to call it phase 2. 


I later ended up combining the two in favour of the other head and leg.
Still had a bit of an issue in spots like the skirt.  🐱
