To any and all who care, I've got two more Disney Mini's. Cinderella and Bambi. But before we get to that, on to my life. School has started here at KSU Manhattan, and I am already in the studio (Art major, duh) alot and yet, still bored! I have actually gotten a bit burned out on drawing, which is why I haven't knocked out as many by now as I should have in my Disney Mini's collection. Oh well, life isn't bad, so whatever.

Cinderella is known for the dress, but I felt the theme of this drawing would work better with her rags. Too bad her face took forever and still looks awful.

I like how I drew Bambi, I just wish I could have done the color part better and also the backgruond. But that may just be me.
See ya'll soon!

Here we go again :) I've been drawing more Disney images and for some reason, I'm still not bored of it :D Below are two more miniture drawings I've done.

DUMBO! I LOVE this drawing, the shading is PERFECT and the color adds a nice touch :)

Micky from Fantasia. The reason for the music notes was that I wanted to represent the movie, not this specific clip he's from. I think this turned out ok.

I'll post more once I do more! Bambi is next!

Disney Minitures

Heya :D So I've started a new 'project'. I am doing mini (as in 3x4.5 inches :O ) drawings. Each will be from a Disney movie, with the main character and (hopefully) an object or scenery that relates to that movie. I have 2 so far, 48 (I think) to go!

This is my first. I am trying to go in order of release, which puts Snow White first. This is one of my favorite drawings, mainly because she's not completely in the Disney cartoon style, more realistic, and the Apple is drawn really well :)

I am not a fan of this one, but Pinocchio was SO HARD to draw, ugh. Oh well. That's supposed to be the wishing star behind him.

And finally: Not a mini, but a random drawing I did last week of Tinana and the Frog from Princess and the Frog. Enjoy!

Disney Drawings

So lately I've been on a drawing streak and I am utterly obsessed with Disney, so as a result, I present: DISNEY DRAWINGS!

3 Different styles of Minnie created for one of my friends. I LOVE how this turned out and I may do one with Mickey and who knows what else :)

Penny from the Rescuers. I drew this for a contest on Deviantart to draw children characters from Disney Movies, so I did Penny with her teddy and Rufus the cat.
Aladdin and Jasmine! This is taken from the scene where they are on top of the pagoda after the carpet ride. This was a good chance for me to work on faces/heads realisticly. I love how it turned out.
Kenai and Koda from Brother Bear. I did this for my sister, and I like how it turned out because the characters are not exactly like the movie, but you still know who they are :D

Thats all my stuff for now. I will post more as I draw more (very soon!).

Bead loom bracelets

Hey! It's been awhile since I posted anything, so I figured I should.

Besides knitting, I also really enjoy using my BEAD LOOM! I am obsessed, which stinks because it takes forever to make anything on it XD Below are some of the projects I've made in the last 3ish years.

My most recent, with more experimentation. This thing took seriously, 20 + hours to complete (finishing and all). I wanted to try a new hook technique since regular clasps never seem to work well, and so I stumbled upon this. I wove all the ends in, then sewed felt to the back, then used embrodery floss, braided it, and sewed it to the sides. I then made bead balls on one end, and loops with the braided floss on the other. It actually worked really well, and I'm so proud of it!

This was one of the first I made on my bead loom that I got for Christmas 2 years ago (already??) This was also the first I experimented with on the felt technique (Which I love). To do the felt technique, simply complete the work, then weave in the weft strings, and then sew a piece of felt or material to the back to keep everything in place.

This is a very old bracelet (One of my firsts) made on a cardboard loom. It's the Danny Phantom logo. I recently went back and redid the hook and put felt on the back.

This is my Christmas time bracelet. It's Christmas lights. Also made on cardboard and before I knew how to weave in the weft strings.

This is one of the first one's I made before I even had a loom and was using cardboard. I actually still wear this one, even though it's not finshed very well.

Super old bracelet I did a LONG time ago on cardboard loom. All the beads were kinda different sizes so it wasn't the best, and it was too long so the hook got messed up XD I really like the colors and pattern though, so I may remake it someday.

So. I think I'm going to post some of my patterns on here too because all of these were created on my own, not from someone else's pattern.
