Saturdays are for Sketch Fest

We’re back with the first installment of our Saturday highlights from #EMGSketchFest 97! Have you been creating today? We’d love to create with you! Just head on over to the full gallery – explore the art, leave some prompts, and create art (sketches, jewelry, whatever you make) of your own!

Let’s take a sneak peek at what’s hanging out in the gallery, shall we?

“Mermaid Fashions” by ElmaBree

ElmaBree, inspired by Mayumi Ogihara’s prompt “Mermaid dress decorated with the most beautiful mermaid scales,” drew this well-dressed mermaid. She adds that this is an unfinished sketch to be completed later.

“Miss Fuzzy Sweater” by Heather Kilgore

It may not be sweater weather anymore, but Heather Kilgore sketched the fabulous “Miss Fuzzy Sweater.” You can almost feel that fuzzy sweater! You can purchase the original graphite drawing on cream drawing paper for just $25.

“Shy Fairy” by Tricia Danby

Tricia Danby’s “Shy Fairy” promises to be a lush illustration in all the fresh colors of spring. We can’t wait to see her completed!

“Chain of Daisies” by Janna Prosvirina

Janna Prosvirina drew this fresh-face fairy crafting a “Chain of Daisies,” and it’s soon to be a coloring page! Here’s what she said: “For those who enjoy coloring I will make this image available as a digital stamp /coloring page. It will be available through my Etsy.” You can pick up the original ink drawing on office paper for $12!

“Jellyfishie” by Nathalie Reinholz

Our last highlight for this afternoon is “Jellyfishie” by Nathalie Reinholz! This gorgeous watercolor of a jellyfish absolutely glows. “No ideas how these are fish,” Nathalie wrote, “but I took this as an opportunity to follow Stephanie Law’s instructional video on patreon on how to paint jellyfish.” If you fancy snagging the original watercolor painting on Hahnemühle Cornwall paper, it’s only $35!

Now that your appetite has been whetted, head on over to the full gallery and wander through the marvelous works waiting for you. Don’t forget – share your thoughts and your artwork on social media with our official hashtag, #EMGSketchFest.

Welcome to EMG Sketch Fest 97!

Anyone still up? We got this Sketch Fest party started about 10 and a half hours ago – have you already thought up and left prompts for our participants? Thinking about creating some art this weekend yourself? We hope so! Come and join us!

“Fairy Flight Magic” by Carina Menaker

Our very first piece of art in the #EMGSketchFest 97 gallery is “Fairy Flight Magic” by first-time participant Carina Menaker! Here’s what Carina said about this piece: “The daisy fairy in her petal and pollen gown makes impossible bumblebee flight possible.” She does, at that.

Join us tomorrow for more Sketch Fest highlights – and feel free to head on over to the full gallery now to enjoy more illustrations. And remember, when you post to social media, use our official hashtag: #EMGSketchFest.
