FOOTBALL BABIES IN BELLY

Even though, I'm not a football fan, after I've finished the Who Dat Baby in Belly, I thought I could do one that was holding a football. Like a little future football player. Or just a baby that was brought to the game while still in their mother's belly.
Here's what I've come up with:

And then, I just couldn't stop myself and started with the teams. I've got 2 down so far: LSU (I just love their colors plus my husband is a Cajun, so if I'm to choose any team, it'll have to be LSU) and Florida (I really like their colors too and when you live in Georgia like I do, there's a lot of Florida Gators around). Here they are: a future Tiger and a future Gator:


With the football season in full, I'm also thinking of going on with this theme and adding other teams. For now, I'm a little stuck and still trying to figure out how to use Georgia's colors. One of their colors is black and it just blends in with the outlines making the design look less crisp.

WHO DAT BABY IN BELLY

I recently went on a trip to Louisiana and everybody just loves the Saints over there. That got me inspired a little to tweak one of my babies in belly into a Saint baby. 

As always, I'm going to put it on maternity shirts. They'll be available in my store shortly.

HUBBY PORTRAIT

So it turns out that my husband has not always been the 6 foot tall man that I've known. He was a very cute boy at some point. I've decided to do a portrait of him 25 years ago. I did it in watercolors on Arches cold press paper. I've taken some pictures as I went. They're not the best quality since I did it with my phone but you'll get an idea of what the progress looked like.

Step 1:
After a quick outline sketch I blocked in the colors lightly.


Step 2:
I continued working on it and kept adding color and detail as I went. I only used 2 brushes throughout: size 10 and 6, I think. I really like those brushes with gel grips.

Step 3:
I continued adding more details and at the end I added a little bit of a background.


And here a picture that also includes the original photo that I worked off of. This way you can go ahead and critique and judge as you please.

REVAMPING THE BLOG

I've been thinking about it forever now but I've finally started working on it. My blog is in dire need of rewamping. I want to add new pages, get rid of silly widgets that nobody uses anyway and finally get back to blogging on a regular basis.
I really have no idea what I'm doing, neither do I have any knowledge of html, so I expect it to be a lenghty and painful process. I guess the main thing is to keep on tracking:) Have a wonderful Sunday everybody.
Any and all comments are welcome.
