More Fairies

Right I finally figured out how to use my scanner, so today I can show a few more of my drawings without them looking too crappy. The first one is another really old one, but I quite like her so I thought I might as well show you anyway. I did this one using a standard black ball point pen, which sometimes I like because the contrast between the dark of the pen and the white of the page looks very sharp but it’s pretty difficult getting any other tones with the pen, (although quite a fun challenge!)

This second one is a much more recent drawing, although it isn’t my own design, I drew it from these fairy tarot cards that my mum gave me years ago called “Healing with the Fairies” by Doreen Virtue. As you can see I never really got round to finishing it and I messed up the perspective a bit (a lot) but I enjoyed doing it all the same. I did this one when I first moved to Brighton, the first two weeks of living here I was alone, I had no internet-so no connection with the outside world and I didn’t know a soul who lived anywhere near. Drawing was about all I had to keep me (partially) sane.
