Girly Bits & Pieces

The picture on the left existed as a rough sketch for a few months but I didn't get to start work on it because I had a bit of freelance work come up. This was the first thing I worked on after that job wrapped up.

In hindsight I should have used clubs instead of hearts to match the shape of her hair. 

This design is available as a T-Shirt at MySoti and RedBubble (also as a sticker).






This is a good example of how I take very simple concepts and make them unnecessarily complicated. I planned on this being only one colour (yellow) with thick black lines to look like it was drawn with a sharpie on a post-it. I should've stopped myself when I started drawing shadows.
On the flip side, I only had a vague idea about how this should look when I started and as a result, this took a lot of time to find a look.
These two pictures are blacked out because they might be too risque for this blog. You can click on the thumbnails to see the NSFW pictures. 

I've been stuck on 3 or 4 drawings and I really wanted to just whip out a drawing so I whipped out a quick self portrait.

I've been using my DSLR to "scan" sketches and while taking a photo of this sketch I decided to also take a  photo of the piece of cardboard I use under my laptop (because I've been using my bed as a desk for the last few months) to use as a background texture. I tried adding details and highlights, but I think it looks better without it.
