Illustration Friday-Mesmerizing

Here’s my Illustration friday picture -Mesmerizing.


I used water colours and then some markers  and then because  I think I messed it up , I put a warming filter on it in Photo shop to clam it down. Here’s the original sketch that I drew and painted  while watching X-factor , Up all night and Modern family….. too many shows to watch.


I hated that big purple mark on her left side.

On a different note, this a monkey picture I’m working on. I have a series of them… i ever get anything finished.

Don’t be scared , I haven’t put eyes on her yet. I’m not leaving it that way. I’m not sure why. I think I’m scared !!!! Of ruining it, Because  I quite like how  it’s turning out. Silly I know.

Monkey see no evil!!!!!!

    I’m not sure you messed it up. However, now you have a bright modern and a warm old-fashioned mesmerizing version. 🙂
