Thorin by SweetLittleVampire

The lovely laurengedraws kindly allowed me to colour one of her sketches - I am over the moon! :D

Go and shower her gorgeous original in love.

This was more fun than I thought it would be. Since I wasn´t able to separate the lineart from the background, I had to colour it all using overlays, which I usually dislike. But here I actually enjoyed it and learned quite a few things.

It’s witchsona week! Admittedly, this is not my witchsona, just an idea for another character I’ve had. All of my characters eventually blur into one… But anyway, here’s a witch. She knits! Magically! 

Also, bristol board is NOT a very good surface to watercolor with. It’s the reason this has a lot of black smudges, but I had to make-do. Also, she’s supposed to be floating? Not sure that’s very apparent since she seems to be in a weird squat, hahahahahahahaha… ha. This is the last time I will ever try to watercolor paint a fairisle cardigan.

So I watched the Doctor Who movie over the weekend, and fell in love with thought the Eighth Doctor was incredibly charming and also had the coolest version of the TARDIS I think I’ve seen out of the three current Doctors I’ve watched. (Yeah, I’m watching the show backwards.) I really wish he could have had a proper run on television, although I know Paul McGann has voiced this version of the Doctor on the radio for years. Anyway, I thought I would draw him. This is really messy, so I might do another version later. :)

It’s been a painfully long time since I drew anything worth getting invested in, and it’s also been a shamefully long time since I drew anything that was even semi-realistic. (I can’t draw realistically, so this is as close as it gets.) I’ve been reading North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell (and watching the BBC miniseries), and felt like sketching up some of the main characters. This is the heroine, Margaret.
