A little change

Rather than sticking with Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, I thought this envelope needed a change…. so I flicked through my book of how to draw dragons until I found some inspiration.

This one was coloured with fine liners, but I also added in some random dots of metallic gel pen just to give the colours a little lift when the light catches it.

Back to Winnie the Pooh

Tigger was nice for a change, but Winnie the Pooh is a little easier to draw…. or maybe there’s just more pictures online of Pooh, so it’s easier to get inspiration?

Either way, this envelope was coloured with some glitter gel pens I bought from Hobbycraft (unfortunately they don’t have them online), so Pooh catches the light really well.

Birthday card – take one

I started drawing this birthday card, but struggled to get the candle to look right…. then I realised the candle looked quite like a “1”, and as the recipient was celebrating her 31st birthday, I added a “3”, and made the original candle look even more like a “1” – problem solved!

Admittedly the colouring looks rather sketchy, but it does look a lot better from a distance (and I think it also gives Pooh more of a furry texture).
