    Default Sketchy Stuff & WIPS (aka Tea's CHAOS)

    my other thread went wonky & did that thing where it wouldn't let me access the next page due to some kinda technical issues (I forget the exac message)... So! here's another try... Fingers crossed this new thread behaves itself!


    First up... Some of the ink & Copic pieces I've worked on this year...

    A pen & ink chica for a friend...

    GORGEOUS! Your pen and inks are so detailed and intricate! Wow, how long do you spend on them?

    So blacklight painting... this is new to me. Is it a special paint that glows under a black light?

    The pen & inks... I worked on the girl & Alice off & on for over a year, so I don't really have any idea about her... But the black lab I did keep up with... It took right at 16 hours. It's an 11x14, all done in micron pen. The Catrina & the witch are smaller pieces (8x10 & 5x7---if I'm remembering correctly) & they didn't take nearly as long, mostly because I relied more on my markers for their shading then the pens.

    The black light paint I used was just cheap craft paint from Wal-Mart, but yes it's a "special" type. They are fluorescent glow paints. There are better blacklight paints out there but they are all so far out of my price range it's almost frightening lol. I put a few blacklight pieces in my etsy shop & told myself that if they actually sold I would invest in a better quality of paint (but so far no dice lol). Mostly it's just fun to kill all the regular lights, turn up the radio & turn on the blacklight to paint.

    Lol... I will, soon... It's a lil odd, the cell reception in my house improves during the winter (crisp clear air or something??)... I've been working on all kindsa stuff lately (& even remembering to get pics & scans!)... I kinda told myself that 2016 would be a year to try new things. I've had the etsy for a couple years now... & the FB art page for a bit... So (after being prodded by my cousin for MONTHS) I started a Patreon page... And after drooling over other friends' Art-O-Mat posts on FB I ordered a submission kit... I've started learning how to do the line art coloring book page thing... And randomly today I opened a Society6 page (thanks for mentioning that in another thread Sal)... So yeah, lots new to get posted ASAP!! But right now I'm goofy tired. Spent another loooong day at the hospital with my dad. (He was having chest pains a couple weeks ago & today was a heart cath---but the dr said everything looked good. They were prepared to go in & put in stints but didn't see a need to once they were in there?? Tomorrow--I mean today--my Lord it's after 2am already!!--I've got another day of dr's appointments with him... Y'all send out the good vibes that the positive news cobtinues!!) I'll get updates posted soon... In the meantime, here's links to my new insanities... Let's hope this is a resolutiony thing I can keep up with!!!
