Banner Ideas

Thank you, Hollie, Emily and Hannah. I've been envying your banners on your blogs. Plus you've all been inspiring me to think about a website as well as digitally illustrating. Once Mike and I complete refinishing our floor, I hope to do some more Oil Painting and traditional Illustrating as well.

Anyway. What do ya'll think of these concepts as a banner to greet my potential viewers? It's more concept than design, but all comments are welcome. I'd love to bounce around ideas! Thanks guys!

Much Better. No?

So I critiqued myself, since I didn't give anyone else much time to do it before I plowed ahead. I think the values are working better , but it still needs a lot of work. I feel like maybe I bit off more than I can chew. I plan to do a header for the top of my blog to greet you. I think I'll post some mock ups and get your opinions.

You asked for it....

So here is my critique: The values need a LOOOOOt of help. Its spotty and muddy. I want it desaturated, but sheesh a lot of work! I want the background to have some detail but mostly fade into the distance, so closer values or softer edges. More obvious lighting of a creepy moon. Okay. I could go on and on. I'll just fix it and show ya'll the finish. I'll take critique now or later. Its all good!
Ps. This is inspired by Illustration Friday's theme: "Spooky."

Dreads all Done!

It's still scratchy, but I'm still learning. I want to use other brushes and textures, but I'm a bit chicken. I'd love advice from you digital mavens. What textures and brushes do you recommend?? Thanks!

Some Digital Painting.

Sooo..... yeah. I'm trying to do people. Are you all completely shocked???? I am. I look at other peoples art all day. Some bad some good. I feel like I can hardly criticize when I'm not even trying myself! So here is an attempt at a person. I'd love color help. Critiques welcome!

Late Night Work

I did a doodle of squash in Relief Society Meeting (Class at church for just the ladies, for those of you who aren't Mormon). It came in handy for this Poster I threw together. It supposed to be just a reminder, and not particularly informative. Its not the best work of my career, but I'm happy enough with it at 1:30 am to call it good. Yay for deadlines!

Ps to my illustrator friends. I got a job at an art gallery and I'm still drawing. I'll post my traditional stuff.......eventually. I really need a scanner.....

About Me

My photo
I am an illustrator, bookbinder, painter, doodler, list-maker, and wife. I love food. I am what can be categorized as a dabbler. I love trying new things, but I always come back around to art and illustration. I just can't help it.
