Hello again art lovers! I am so excited to show you what I learned this week! Not only did I take time to practice, but I got to attend a fantastic workshop and learned a new painting style! It was SO fun… I love taking classes to learn new techniques, but this was one of my favorites. We learned how to cartoon on the face, AND how to make our art ANIMATED! These fun designs move with your face so when you scrunch, bunch, twist or expand your forehead and mouth the characters look like they’re moving. I hope I get to paint one of these guys on you soon so you can see how fun they are! I’d love to hear what you think!
This one is only half done because we needed to move on in class to the next cool thing.
This bat is my own original design, based on what we learned in class. I think he’s pretty awesome. 🙂
Here is a fun cartoon style heart design! I think this one will be pretty popular.
And here are some practice eyeballs on my arm… I like the black eye the best… can’t wait to put those on a character soon!
So what do you think? Do you like the new style? I do have to admit, painting these guys on yourself is TRICKY! Hopefully I’ll be painting them on some younger faces soon. 🙂
