WIP Wednesday

Although I love sharing for WIP Wednesday I am heading into the season where a lot of my art is being made for Christmas presents, which means a lot of it has to be kept under wraps (WOO bad puns!). But, I’ll of course share what I can!

foxplush

I finished my fox plush! I made him from my own pattern, using both a ready-made plush on Etsy and Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog for a reference. I definitely learned a lot (via trial and error) about pattern making, and for my next couple designs I’m going a bit bigger. This guy was a tad small, and some of the pieces were hard to cut. My stitching also ran into a couple problems, but I still like him! Eventually I’ll do a post dedicated just to pattern making, and probably share my patterns if they come out nicely!

raccoon

This is the next pattern I’ve made – a raccoon! He actually had a lot more pieces than I was originally thinking, but he should be so cute once he’s all done!

hedgehog

This little guy is the one I’m most excited about – a hedgehog!! Who will of course be blue to accompany the fox (Sonic and Tails!!), and then I’ll have added in some subtle geek to this particular batch of presents.

wintersoldier

This was a speedpaint I did last week to celebrate Winter Solider coming out on Blu-Ray. (YEEHOO!! I love this movie). Anywho, start to finish was about 25 minutes I think? I posted it on my Instagram but wanted to share here too. I’m trying to work on speedpaints to help me improve my watercolor blending skills without taking a ridiculous amount of hours to get a painting done! As you can see, it’s pretty rough, but that’s why we practice, right?!

I threw some rough color into this sketch, and now I definitely have an idea where I want to go with it. It is definitely going to get fully inked, and (hopefully) have a comic panel type to it.

And lastly, from my sketchbook, I’ve been working on some pose stuff for two reasons. 1. It’s good practice, especially when I rarely do full body stuff. 2. I have some fun illustrations planned that will need a full body pose and I’m trying to find ones I like!

I do have a couple portraits finished and started, but can’t share them. . .I’m not sure if the people they are for read my blog but I’m not risking it! Hope you enjoyed this week’s WIPs!

    Your little fox is so cute! I can’t wait to see what the raccoon and hedgehog look like. That Winter Soldier watercolor is amazing, especially for a speedpaint. I really need to get around to watching Winter Soldier. It’s supposed to be my next DVD rental.
