Pixie

This mischievous little creature showed up in my sketchbook last night. She just made me smile. I've been known to cause a little mischief myself so I could totally identify with her. Maybe she's a small part of me, who knows... I rather like her! She's cheered me up a bit. After I sketched and shaded her I scanned the page into Photoshop and added a few digital elements.

Today kicks off 30 Days of Creativity. I try to work in my sketchbook every evening. Sometimes nothing comes of it but other times I am surprised at the ideas for paintings that jump out from the page. So I won't post what I do everyday but periodically I'll check in with what I'm working on. I think it's a great idea and love to see people getting excited about art! How cool is that!

The Pixie reminds me of my nephew. Mischief planning in eyes. :)

She definitely has a mysterious expression! I'd keep a close eye on her if I were you. Fantastic!

She is gorgeous- I love the way the whites of her eyes and the delicate tracery of her wings POP against the background- WONDERFUL!
BTW, when you sketch each night, do start with an idea of what you want to do or just doodle until it becomes something? Sketching is a discipline I need to get back into!

Thank you ALL! Your comments mean so much to me. I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. :)

Stephanie: You know, I usually don't have any idea what I will end up with when I start to sketch. I know it will be some kind of face and am always surprised that they can still turn out different each time. ;)

She does look as if she is thinking up some engaging mischief, doesn't she? Great evocative work, Roland

I love the mint- colored hues in this piece- very shadowy/twilight feeling and her gossamer wings make her truly enchanted. Beautiful!

She made me smile too, so the feeling must be contagious. I love her dark colors, and that expression on her face that says, "I have a secret and I won't share!"
