I'm still finding inspiration from Vintage Valentine finds from the other day . . . remember the little birdie valentine from my post a couple days ago? Well, she's back (that's her peaking out at the edge of the sketch) and she's the starting inspiration for my latest Pop Art Mini design, "Sweet Tweet".
I changed up the colors a bit and added a little wire birdcage (another inspiration that keeps floating in the back of my mind), a few more hearts, a rose headpiece and a message that "chirps" of a reference to that thing called "Twitter". And without further ado I'd like to introduce to you "Sweet Tweet"
And since I hadn't shared a progressive picture show lately thought I'd throw in few quick flashes . . . Sometimes it's fun to see how it's done
After the pencil sketch is complete I apply a layer of white to the entire paper.
Next up background...which is usually several shades of blue and sometimes a touch of green.
Next up a little brown and the details start to come together
Adding black outline accents that will be blended into the color for a nice shaded look.
A little more color...pink to be precise.
And next a bit of red...here comes the bold, bright colors
Catch a fella with a little bit of yella...hehehe
And the blending begins first using the white oil pastel . . .
and than the blending stick.
After the blending the details and finishing touches
Tweet! Tweet! It's just about complete . . . signing off!
Wishing you a day filled with "Sweet Tweets"!
