slither


I'm a bit of a beginner at water colour painting, so this was fun. I used some water colour pencils and pen as well because I didn't know how to make things stand out with just water colour paint.

fearless

The quote in the Illustration Friday email this week was:

The fearless are merely fearless. People who act in spite of their fear are truly brave.

I suppose I don't really think of fearlessness in a positive way, because I associate it with not caring about anything. If you don't care about anything then you don't fear what might happen to it.

I decided to draw a robot doing something that I suppose is exciting because it's scary. Nothing against robots, but I associate them with not having feelings.

I'm not entirely happy with it, but I'm not sure what is wrong.

cocoon


I should probably do some more work on this before I call it finished. But I'm tired, so this will do. I'm hoping to improve gradually by doing a painting each week. This is acrylic paint on a wooden board.

Squiggle creature


I drew this in my German class the other day to pass some time, and then I liked it so I decided to colour it in.
