Loving this darling little fan art piece by trickstersweet ^___^
A work-in-progress of a piece in a random sketchbook.
Also inspired by the Regina Spektor song ‘Blue Lips’
In a way this piece is very much not mine
Also the pose isn’t fantastic because this is mainly coloring practice but hey

I sure did- and don’t forget Merriweather! She was my fav!
Honestly, inspiration comes to me constantly from many many sources. Movies, music, photos, other artists, or even dreams sometimes. As for the “why bothers” and “what-ifs” my best advice is to JUST DO IT. It’s sounds cliche- but you can’t succeed if you don’t even try, right? It’s true- you may do tons of pieces you hate at first but just keep going because for every piece you do (even if you hate it) YOU WILL learn something from it. You may say- “I don’t like the style of my drawing” or “I don’t like color scheme on this one” ….. So do it differently the next time! There is no reason you can’t do another piece, right? Finding your artistic style and getting into a creative “groove” takes a lot of trial and error, and often some blood, sweat and tears. Even well established artists struggle often and question themselves. I know I do- ALL THE TIME! I always strive to outdo myself on my next piece and I’m always looking to improve along the way. I hope you will too! Good luck and hang in there! <3
It depends. All materials react a little differently. I would advise testing them by adhering them to a similar surface before attaching anything to your final painting. For 2D objects- matte medium should work just fine. Liqutex also sells a lot of amazing products for creating 3D textures and adhering 3D elements. Just be brave- experiment and see what happens! ^__^
Awww! Thank you! xoxoxo! L
