My submission for Every/Body Zine! Feeling self conscious about my body, especially while wearing dresses, is something I struggle with all the freaking time. But sometimes you gotta stop thinking about how chubs your arms are, or how that dress hugs your belly, or your butt and just go outside!
Once it’s no longer three degrees outside, I’m gonna try and wear dresses/skirts more often.
One of the things I particularly enjoy about looking at art school students’ work is that, while the students have their own unique visual flourishes, they’re also in a period of intense experimentation. Looking over Minneapolis College of Art and Design student Ann Macarayan’s work, I can see details that could very well come to typify her style: little marks that add emotion to the faces, red and blue noses that make her characters a tad more cartoony, careful attention to the fit and wear of her clothing. But she’s constantly testing out new styles and media as she learns and grows as an artist.
Second part of my illustrations for digital illustration. Since I made that quartz queen, I wanted to keep on that theme of crystals and gems. Along side a character portrait, we had also had to develop an environment or scene, which is something I NEVER draw (I hate drawing backgrounds you guys). So this was a fun experiment, and I’m actually really happy with how it came out!
People brush your teeth, floss between and use that mouthwash! You don’t need to breath fire to kill. #art #artime #drawing #dragon #comicalebtoons #dragons #halitosis #toothpaste #hygiene #badbreath #fire #stinky
