Egg-Citing News! Humpty Dumpty to Oversee The Big Egg Hunt!

Humpty Dumpty Sat On A Wall   by Joni Nickrent   copyright 2011
With the biggest Egg Hunt of the year just a day away I thought it would be appropriate to step outside the basket, crack open my oil pastels and create a Pop Art Mini of one of the most famous "egg-heads" of all time!
And the EGG-Citing news...Humpty has agreed to oversee the event, and I think with those big eyes he should have no problem watching over the festivities, from his favorite spot...on top of the wall!
Hopefully he'll stay put and not take a fall!
So how did this materialize...check it out below!

With pencil in hand the sketching began.
Once that was done it was time for color fun!
Adding Layers of tan...a touch of red and blue
How about an egg-citing close up view
More color added...ear to ear
A touch on the tie...isn't he a dear!?
Base color's done...time for blending fun!
Next up the details...adding black
He's almost time to slack
Signing off...Back Together Again
Egg-Citing and fun it's definitely been!

Pssst...Don't miss out on this weeks link ups and Giveaways over on the Pop Art Minis Blog...check out the posts below and join in the fun!

I can't even tell you how much I love this. Humpty was my son's absolute favorite nursery rhyme character so I have drawn and painted him many times, and even made a couple of loved to death Humpty dolls. It's been a while, however, since my son is now 19. It's so good to see that old egg again! You do such fabulous work.
