This was a fun even if a bit quiet. I did a pen drawing, then I put some vellum over it and painted on it. The vellum really changes how acrylic acts. I've continued to use it, like for my "lil joe" jumping over the rock. Vellum can be treated like tracing paper without all the buckling, so I've enjoyed using it on little projects to see color.

This is my griffen. Usually a griffen has a bird head and a lion body, well thats been done. So I combined a lion with a peacock. This is from my sketch book, but I thought it was a good start. I have some other combination ideas: cheetah/flamingo and goose/tiger. I've already sketched them out, but their not refined just yet.
I feel like mermaids tend to be over done. Don't get me wrong... I enjoy drawing a mermaid every now and agian, but I felt like a crabmaid would be interesting. I had a good time researching different kinds of crabs and crustaceans. I did this in ballpoint pen, much to the chagrin of my illustration teacher. I think I'd like to paint it or maybe do a inkwell version with a nifty background.

For Relief Society Activity, I decorated our garden hats with fake flowers and ribbons. It was a lot of fun. None of the others did that, so I felt a little out of place, but my mom said she loved hers and was more excited to wear her hat out in the garden now! Love you Mom!

I've always had the most fun as a kid when we played with the boxes the toys came in. We (my sisters) had a blast with our cardboard castles. So I thought it would be fun to depict a kid using his cardboard box as a rocket ship. I originally had my boy as human not my cuddily creature, but I just couldn't get it right. I need to shoot some reference first. Keep a look out, I have a new version soon!!!
This is a small version of the finished work. I had a blast designing the monsters. I wish I had been able to show some more of the monster's bodies. I just love designing characters. The little kid is so cool! He scares off all those monsters with his super-duper flashlight!
