february art: wu wu wu




ha! you thought i forgot didn't you? well, i didn't! i was just holding out on you guys, waiting until the last possible second to keep you in suspense! or, the more likely story, i didn't finish this until last night, forgot to bring my sketchbook to work with me so i could use the scanner there because the one at home is too small (or i drew too big) and i had to take a picture of it instead with the d60, which of course didn't happen until after i got home from work and the gym (and a couple of target runs :X).

breathe. longest run on in history. and totally, totally.. not... true. not in the least. ;D

like any artsy person i tend to draw inspiration from things around me. whether its a magazine that pops up on my door or a hair style and earrings i've become obsessed with. so it should be no surprise that this month's art is of course centered around jason wu for target.

i was tempted to color this one with watercolors but things have been a little hectic lately and i ran out of time. and watercolors cause a big mess that i didn't want to clean up. so i resorted to my second favorite form of color (pastels are my first btw), colored pencils! (plus, the sketch i did was so dirty that i don't think watercolors would've been a good idea :P). since this is inspired from the jason wu for target line, i, of course, had to feature a cartoon version of Milu and his adorable red bow. i had some trouble deciding on the outfit though. there are so many items that i love from it! first thought was to draw out the the sheer white top with the black ribbon and pair it with the belize skirt, but i think thats been done before. next was my favorite--the navy poplin! but then i thought it might make everything too dark with Milu being a black kitty and all.

and then it hit me. of course. the cream flared dress? perfect! plus, i don't know when i'll actually get to wear it, so i might as well let her wear it first, no? that and i wanted an excuse to draw cute litte scallop trims.

in any case, enjoy! :)

  2. You are so talented! I love using pastels and color pencils too! I made the mistake of using watercolor in my sketchbook and it seeped through lol. But anyways, I love this photo, it's so cute. I like how you drew inspiration from the Jason Wu line!
