Fantasy/Otherworldly

New Zodiac Illustration! ……..Pisces……….

Last month I started a new series, the Zodiac.

Today, I introduce you to……Pisces.
She’s  fun (or should I say “they”), she’s sweet, she’s determined, and she’s swimming in a circle 🙂

She will now join her brother and sister in my Zodiac Collection 🙂
Three down and nine more to go! This project is really fun, I hope you enjoy them as much as I am!

February Creativity: Day Five….Be Otherworldly!

What does Otherworldly mean?
Yes, I needed clarity so I went to: http://www.thefreedictionary.com/otherworldly

oth·er·world·ly  (/ˌəT͟Hərˈwərldlē/)

adj.

1. Of, relating to, or characteristic of another world, especially a mystical or transcendental world: “The effect was dreamy, otherworldy”(Gioia Diliberto).
2. Devoted to the world of the mind; concerned with intellectual or imaginative things.
3. Concerned with an afterlife, especially when inattentive to the present.

I also went to: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/otherworldly Funny thing here is at the end of the definition explanation there is a comment box. Seems like I am not the only one to be posting about the 33 Ways to Stay Creative! Many people are doing the same thing….weird!

I am going to run with definition TWO, part TWO for my purposes: “Concerned with intellectual or imaginative things.”
I am a big fan of the fantasy realm, and apparently, most things otherworldly…as long as they are not scary. Ever since watching the midnight showing of “The Ring” my senior year of High School….well, let’s just say I’m not a fan. But I do like otherworldly things and/or beings that spread the love 🙂

Today I am developing an illustration idea that I have had in the back of my mind for a while, and since VDay is approaching it seems most appropriate. I am a huge fan of mermaids…I suppose most girls my age are since I think Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” was in its peak when I was a snot-gobbler….But I must give most of my my mermaid-love credit to My Auntie Stefie. I love her. 🙂 ANyhoo….

Below you have a few progress sketches. There wasn’t enough time today to finish it. But I plan to do it in watercolor and maybe some digital coloring. I will post the finished illustration this week 🙂 Hope you like it!
