I had so much fun participating in Sketch Fest this past week. For those of you who haven't heard about Sketch Fest, it is an event hosted by Ellen Million where people can post prompts for artists to sketch. You have one hour to complete your sketch and then you can then post it up for others to see or for sale!
This was my first time participating and I had an absolute blast. I completed 7 new sketches and just thought I'd take a moment to recap and show all the sketches I finished. There are even a couple still for sale!
Rainbows in Her Hair
I really loved this prompt and knew exactly what I wanted to do as soon
as I saw it! I decided to do a portrait in pencil and then color her
hair with colored pencils to resemble a rainbow. I hope you all enjoy
It measures 5x7" and is done on sketch paper with pencils and colored
pencils. This piece was SOLD during Sketch Fest.
Mermaid in a Bathtub
I have always wanted to draw a mermaid in a bathtub, so I just had to
jump at this prompt! It was a lot of fun to draw and I especially liked
adding the little rubber ducky.
It measures 5x7" and is done on sketch paper with pencil. This piece was SOLD during Sketch Fest.
Critters in Rain Boots
I couldn't resist this prompt! I usually draw "human" characters, but
who doesn't love adorable little critters in rain boots? I'm not sure
why, but I instantly thought of a hedgehog. I think they're adorable and
I've never drawn one before. So here is my hedgehog frolicking through
the forest on a rainy day, splashing in puddles with her rain boots!
This measures 5x7" and is drawn on sketch paper in pencil. This piece SOLD during Sketch Fest.
Wizard of Oz Character in My Style
I have always wanted to draw the Wizard of Oz characters so I just had
to do this prompt! I decided to start with Dorothy. I made her my style
by changing her traditional outfit to make it a bit more sexy. I of
course had to give her a corset top, but added ruffles to keep it sweet.
I also added a little striped arm cuff. I hope you all enjoy her!
This sketch measures 5x7" and is drawn on sketch paper in pencil. This piece is still for sale on the Sketch Fest website here.
Fairy with Dragonfly Wings
I love drawing fairies with different types of wings and I have never
done one with dragonfly wings, so I decided to give this one a shot! I
wanted to add a few more details to her clothes, but ran out of time.
Hope you all enjoy her! =)
This was drawn a 5x7" piece of sketch paper with pencil. This piece SOLD during Sketch Fest.
Well, I was struggling trying to decide what to draw next with all the
wonderful prompts, but I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to draw a
pirate and a fae pirate at that! I love to draw pirates with all their
detailed, layered clothing. It was really fun to try and think of what
kind of wings a pirate fairy would have. I imagined her having tattered
wings that look like they're made out of ship sails and rope. I hope you
all enjoy her! =)
This was done on a 5x7" piece of sketch paper with pencil. This piece is still for sale on the Sketch Fest website here.
Well, I guess I'm on a fairy kick! I've drawn multiple fairies this
Sketch Fest and decided to end with a pretty Princess Fairy! I've always
wanted to draw a princess with the tall cone shaped princess hat, so I
took this opportunity to do so. Hope you all enjoy her! =)
This is drawn on a 5x7" piece of sketch paper with pencil. This piece SOLD during Sketch Fest.
