Harry Potter week

Well, yesterday was Harry Potter's birthday, and also the end of Taryn Draws Potter week prompt 7 day drawing challenge. So, I thought I'd come on here and share all the drawings for the week. Some of them were rush jobs, some could have done with a background, but, over all I'm mostly happy with them. So, without further ado…
Day 1: best friends Day 2: "Must be a Weasley"Day 3: House Colors

Day 4: Misunderstood

Day 5: Flora & Fauna

Day 6: Parental figure

Day 7: "Yer a wizard, Harry"

Bloody Mary

So, got some drink coasters, Rifle Paper Co Royal cocktail coasters to be exact and one is Bloody Mary… so I wanted to draw her. So, opened the sketchbook again and here it is… 

The Copic Cast:                                          E000, E93, R17, RV10, B37, Bv29, BG57 and Y28 

Used the Pilot G-Tec-C4 to line. 

Expecto Patronum!!!


Took the Pottermore quiz to find out my Patronus… Dapple Grey Stallion. Fancy eh! I always figured myself an otter or dog type person, but, we used to have horses when I was little, and I adored them, miss them, and they’re kinda just big dogs, so hell yeah! I’ll take a majestic horse any day!

Inktober Day 1

Day 1: Harry Potter

I used Sumi ink, a zebra brush pen and Copic markers. Might have gotten a bit carried away with the Sumi ink… but tomorrow is another day to practice.

Lady of Spring

Did a little drawing the other night whilst watching Outlander on Starz. I was inspired by the costume design, and the thought of spring. It was snowing and blustery out, so, not exactly spring here in the Rockies, but it’s coming and a girl can dream.

This one is a bit sketchy and certainly not refined, but that’s probably a bit of how my style just is. I used Winsor & Newton Brushmarkers and inked with a Pilot fine liner. I really like the Pilot fine liner, A LOT!

I liked how it turned out, I enjoyed the process of making it; but I thought this morning, maybe I’d try doing it a different way…

So, I drew it up again and used my Daniel Smith Watercolors, and Winsor & Newton ink in Brick red. At first I started lining with a fine paintbrush, but I was making too thick of lines and just riding the struggle bus. So I hopped off and switched to a dip pen using a G nib and it all went much smoother. The end result is a mix of line weights that was unintentional, but, I just go with the flow and imperfections that happen in all things I do. It’s not as clean as I had envisioned it, but, I still like how it turned out. Just another reminder that I need to practice on a few things, and that’s to be expected.

But, without further ado… here’s the remixed version of The Lady of Spring.

What have you been up to on your Sunday? I have been working on this and dreaming of spring mostly. I’m going to go make myself a spot of tea and sit on the couch and stare at the idiot box now, see if something good is on. I’ll be back tomorrow with That Monday Feeling.
