What I created: I participated in a MMH (Make Me Happy) swap for inchies on. I got the theme of Emoji... and had to create 6 inchies. These are all 1"x1" as all inchies are. For details on each one and a better quality image visit my gallery.
I painted all 6 inchies using watercolor then went over some areas using Prismcolor Colored Pencils and Le Pen fine tip marker.
I absolutely loved how these turned out... they look oh so much better when held in your hands because they are just tiny and adorable. I am really starting to like the idea of such a small canvas. It really is hard to work in details but the result is very satisfying.. I felt like I had accomplished something truly grand upon completing these inchies.
Further thoughts: This is giving me an idea for artist tiles... I need an excuse to make those anyways so might as well use this theme. If you look at the standard emoji that are common across multiple platforms, you'll see some "scenery" related emoji. I am thinking about painting those on 3.5"x3.5" artist tiles (I recently got an entire pack gifted). So be on the lookout for artist tiles!
Possible experiments: I am wondering now how these would look if I had created them using ink...
I used to be a digital artist but switched back to traditional art as I feel more connected with the art I create this way. Currently, I create art whenever I can for art trades and commissions. I have worked with clay (earth clay to modern forms like Polymer, Sculpey, even Air Dry clay) along with watercolors, acrylics, oil paints, pastels, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, India ink, Chinese Colors, wires, felt fabric, yarn, weaving, basket making, and the list goes on and on. I am currently working on exploring nail art, make-up, dress making, scrapbooking, and small canvas art.
