CHALLANGE! May, Week 4: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White and the Huntsman opens this week so I thought I would be a great theme/challenge! Feel free to be inspired by this version, Disney or your own. Have fun!

While looking for images, I came across this video. Really fun style and I will never understand how people can ink like this!


Please don't post until Friday and label: Your Name, Snow White. Thanks!

Fri... er, Saturday Inspiration: Painting Demo

I am sorry so many Fridays have gone by without an inspiration post! I am finally almost settled into my place and more importantly got my desk set up today! So inspiration posts are back and I'll do my best to make up for the past few weeks.

This digital panting demo, by Salvador Ramirez Madriz, caught my eye because first: the super cute character, and second: he does a piece like this in one to two hours! This was a nice reminder to me to not get hung up on a piece. Which is very easy to do! I also love how he applies the color almost painterly and his overall style of rendering. He does a great job bouncing the colors off of each other, which helps make everything fit together as nicely as it does. Enjoy!



A SEMI-FORMAL AFFAIR

Ties are required, but not tuxedos and shoes.

My first post on this blog and it's a pun. I'm so sorry. xD
Inspired by this infuriatingly stupid ad campaign for a certain sandwich spread.
