Illustration Friday - Impatience



it's funny. i have this idea in the back of my head...what would a certain person look like IF they were a vampire? and i set out to try to paint this. and can't. the girl never is pretty enough. so i move on. on to possibly my next and last queen? the one i haven't done yet - queen of diamonds? and then i see this great photo of a famous actress all goddessed up and i think, that's it - the next queen will be a goddess (which originally in my head was going to be India Indian) and so i start drawing...three tries until i get what leads to the final painting - "what if Bella was a vampire when she went to the prom" - yep. that's the way i go...carefully thought out and planned. never. Well anyway, i'm happy with it. this looks so much better hi rez. (Must speak in code now...the fog in the background is Forks fog)

but on to Illustration Friday... as far as vampires go they are most likely a little more impatient than humans - i know i would be the most impatient vampire alive/dead because i'm pretty impatient in human form. thank you all for being patient enough to read this far...i'll stop now...

I was patient enough to read it all...though I'm not sure I necessarily agree about vampires being impatient. I would think they'd be very patient--all that time. And I don't know why vampires would have to be beautiful, either...why couldn't someone NOT beautiful be a vampire. It's just like people on TV or in the movies. Sometimes it seems like every single woman in a movie is thin and beautiful, or at least everyone important is. Not like in real life, where people come in all sizes and shapes.

As far as the picture goes, it's absolutely lovely!

You and my daughter are so into Twilight - She bought a shirt at Target today that says "I (heart) vampires." It is a great illo!

Beautiful as usual. I think vampires might be very patient--they have all the time in the world. However they might also be impulsive...

Lovely stylistic illustrations. Are you mixed media--a combination of watercolor and markers or felt pens? Doing people as they are bores me to deat too, hence I toy with them by mixing their features with some pretty surprise my wily imagination has concocted.
