Beginning, Staying and Straying

Sketchbook Project Pages 9-10

I’m working with pencil on stipple paper again, with the tiniest bit of liquid pencil and white acrylic.  Just playing a little with scale and the concepts of beginning, staying and straying.

My world is a wonder of visual candy and foreboding shadow shapes vying every waking moment for my full attention.

  1. I like it. Now I’m going to have to go see if Photoshop, PaintShop Pro, or Photo-Paint will let me work with pencil on stipple paper with the tiniest bit of liquid pencil and white acrylic. (I simply liked the way that sounded.)

  2. This is a beautiful sketch elena! That branch almost looks like I can touch it. Such a little story going on here with the little house and the growth coming off the branch, metamorphosis before my very eyes, I really love your work! It does make me want to get back to the process of drawing.

  3. Wow! A new-found benefit of being at work: I just realized I can set your sketches as my desktop backgrounds! Nice big dual monitors!
    I particularly love this one because it reminds me of Bryan Froud’s Faeries book from the 70’s…It was the first hard-cover book I bought, as a young teenager, and that was when I decided that illustration was what I wanted to do…
    (That’s a compliment, by the way… I think you’re better than Froud, if I dare say so…) 😀
    Thank you, Elena!

  4. I wouldn’t presume to comment on the finer, technical aspects but I find fantasy and rhythm to be regular features of your style.
