Cute Watercolour Artwork fun!

I’ve been updating my Deviant Art account a lot more frequently lately, both with artwork and reformatted tutorials and I thought you guys might enjoy seeing some of the things I’ve been up to as well. If you have an account there, let me know so I can watch you! My username is unsurprisingly violetlebeaux XD

This is the first in my outfit series.


Getting Back Into Watercolour Painting

Over the holidays I took a week off and it was the best time I’ve had pretty much all year! One of the things I want to do this year is relax more and do things that I want to do, I worked my arse off last year and I think if I keep going that way I’m just going to burn out.

So in the spirit of that, James dug out my watercolour set and bought me some new supplies and I haven’t really stopped painting since. I don’t remember half of the things I used to know and I’m definitely very out of practice but I’m having a whole lot of fun relearning and playing around with it. I’m knocking off work earlier at night now so while we play Assassin’s Creed I do some painting or craft. It’s a really nice feeling to be inspired again 😀

So here are a couple of the random things I’ve painted, they’re just silly sketches but I haven’t gotten around to uploading any of the more complicated pieces I’ve tried yet. I’ve been taking video of me painting too and I’m going to upload the first proper one tomorrow, it’s a portrait of Fables in Fashion!

Have any of you rediscovered an old hobby lately? Any suggestions for things to do while relaxing?

Random Cute Animals Drawing Fun

All this week I’ve been doodling while I should be doing other more boring things >_< I have no motivation for work at the moment but I have motivation for drawing haha! I’ve been thinking my little cartoon girl mascot needs some kind of little animal friend so I started drawing up some sketches. I’m going to keep drafting them but I thought you guys might enjoy seeing some of the first drafts, let me know what you think 😀

I’ve done 6: kitty, fox, squirrel, meerkat, bunny and puppy.


I totally want to make plushie version of the finished designs too ^_^


iPad Drawing App Reviews

As you guys know I’ve been doing quite a bit of drawing recently to relax at night. I tend to cycle between knitting, embroidery, drawing and video games depending on my mood at night and having the ipad has given me yet another medium to play with. From my art posts quite a few people asked what programs I was using to draw with so here is my list and reviews!

All of the pictures in this post were done with InkPad


Lolita Art time!

I’ve been vectoring again on the ipad so prepare for an art dump ^_^

This is a vector version of an invitation I did several years ago. I like the original better but this was still fun to do!


Lolita Drawing Fun ^_^

I’ve been tackling a couple of really large involved work video projects this last week so to try and relax at night I’ve taken to drawing again. I decided to try something I haven’t done too much of before: vectors

And this was the first result. I drew a paper version of this years ago which I used as a base ^_^


I’m kind of addicted now 😀 Hope you’re all having an awesome weekend, it’s back to work for me until this project is all finished! Once it is though I am going to have a gigantic photo taking/tutorial making spree, I’m really looking forward to that!!
