Commission cat 2015 by EsBest
Commission cat 2015
This is a commission; my first one. It is a watercolour done on the more abstract-style to mirror the client"s less than detail faded photographs. It was painted on cold-pressed block paper.

Fan Brush by EsBest
Fan Brush
After a hiatus from drawing and painting in order to work on other projects in other spectrum of the craft world, I have taken up arms again; picking up brushes, cracking the knuckles...back at it. Hello my friend (art of painting), how I've missed you.

Super Moon August 2014 by EsBest
Super Moon August 2014
Was not able to get a clear view of the Super Moon this past summer (2014) to get a night photograph but a friend did. It is their photos that was given permission to use as a reference and inspiration for the watercolour shown. It was painted the same month as the super moon was recorded be seen closer than previous years past.

Garlic Bread Hilight Sept 29th
In culinary class today we made some stable dishes for the fall and winter season: Chicken Pot Pie and corn bread but we also made Scalloped Ham with Noodles as well as these appetizing garlic bread slices.

ImageMap mobile software was used on my photos to create this collage/spread

Devious Journal Entry

Journal Entry: Wed Mar 6, 2013, 4:26 PM


My awesome new journal skin thanks to DA, Blackberry and the creator, of course, of this great animated journal skin!

I am working hard at practicing my overall sketching while tweaking my own style. In the past, I would do fan art and very little original art or even fully completed character. So I am working on that and the background and/or landscape (environments) for which their character will originate; their story.

In between all that when I taking a break from all those projects, I like to paint watercolor artwork. It comes more naturally for me and I enjoy it a great deal. I also plan on revisiting charcoal and other mediums too. So stay tuned, visit my page often and please remember to leave a comment.

Cheers!

:wave: Hey-o!
I am professional photographer (see website). However, I am also hobbyist/student illustrator working towards a degree who would love to see her work in print and film. I am also working on a book too. "Wish me luck!" :D I love the work of Deviants like Patrick Brown, Nebezial & others are among my Favorite Collection. Although not in my favorite but also loved illustrators are those who work on movies and shows like Soul Eater, American Pop, FMA: Brotherhood, Samurai Champloo and Redline. I love their style. I really love the work of big YouTube artist and book author, Mark Crilley. My avatar is a recreation of one of his drawings; a chibi from his "Draw 20 Chibi" video. I have many of his lesson drawings in my collection which were all done while following along with his many tutorials that I have drawn in gallery. He now has a how-to draw Manga book out as well, entitled, "Master Manga" available through Barnes & Noble or Amazon. I own a copy. I also own copies of "Brody's Ghost" series (3 out of 4; the fourth has not been released at the time of this post).


I like to paint with watercolor. The work of YouTube artist "idrawgirls" does amazing work with what looks like little to no no effort. The wife of one of favourites Deviant artist is also an amazing background/landscape artist. I really love landscapes. I also like to photograph landscape and architectures. I love the smile and joy it brings to others when I photograph, create put together something they love.

I also like to do various craft like knitting, crotcheting and sewing.

Thanks! :dance:
I learned how to do it following along to one of his tutorial on YouTube and with his permission via the video, I customized it to be my avatar with my own personal features preferences. I'm a big fan of his work and tutorial. :love: I subscribe to him on YouTube and follow him on twitter.
