Pen and Ink Eye Makeup Drawing

This here is a simple pan and ink drawing that I did back in the 7th grade. I was mainly focused on the quality of the eyeliner and lashes rather than the quality of the actual technical parts of drawing an eye, but it was fun to do. I just sketched it out first in…

Flower Girl Pen and Ink Drawing

I made this piece in the 7th grade for an art competition, inspired by a piece by Loui Jover. I started off by sketching out the girl, then I drew her in pen and ink. Her hair was a challenge, because I was new to the medium and didn’t really understand it yet. I tried…

Cow Sugar Skull

I am in love with this piece. In my freshman art class, we had to draw something with the theme of the Day of The Dead in an assigned artist’s style. I was really lucky and got Georgia O’Keeffe. Immediately I knew that I was going to draw the skull of an animal, how she…

Girl Lined Paper Drawing 

This here is a drawing that I did way back in elementary school, probably in the sixth grade. I remember being incredibly bored, so I drew this. All of the girls thought it was cool how I drew and shaded that hair, and all of the guys thought it was weird that I was drawing…

Three Cross Paintings

My church was having a big fundraiser event, and I wanted to donate some art. I began by using the pages out of a Methodist Hymnal and pasting them onto three canvasses. I sketched out three crosses and painted and lined them with acrylic paint. The leftmost cross I wanted to be a solid black,…

Telescope Constellation Watercolor

I had sketched out a telescope a long time ago on watercolor paper, planing on painting a landscape around it with it pointed towards a starry sky. I never got around to painting it, and it just sat in my portfolio. I found it while I was cleaning my portfolio out, and finally finished it…

Graphite Girl Drawing

I’ve been super into drawings that are overexposed and light in most areas, such as the two pictured below. Credit: Ileana Hunter I was inspired by Hunter’s works, so I did this piece, which was also an interpretation to another piece. I focused on making the hair darker and more dramatic, and the facial features…

Fun With Henna

I was working as a babysitter when a girl just a little younger than me came by. She had a tube of henna ink and wanted me to do something for her because she knew I was an artist. I did both of her feet and then did my wrist. Henna Tattoos are awesome because…

Colorful Hair Drawing

I was in math class when a friend offered me a piece of gum. On the wrapper there was an option to do a truth or a dare. The truth was boring, but the dare printed on the paper was to sell an original piece of art. I joked with my friend that it was…

Self-Portrait

<Welcome, 2017! I wish for a prosperous year for everyone.>   I don’t do many self-portraits, and I’ve been wanting to do some to explore different aspects of myself. Another thing that this piece depicts is my insomnia. I am constantly tired, whether I got two or 12 hours of sleep. I’ve felt really drained…

Hand Line Drawing

I had seen an idea floating around on Pinterest a couple of years ago of tracing your hand and drawing lines across the page, arching up going over the hand, for a cool, 3D look. I did what I just described, but wrote “help others” in cursive to give the drawing more of a meaning…

P!ATD Drawing

I was doing an entry in an art journal of mine, and I had a substantial amount of paint left over. I felt inspired by the color scheme, and it just so happened that the song Hallelujah by Panic! At The Disco came on. I started out by just drybrushing a pink metallic paint for…
