It’s Sketch Fest Saturday, and we hope you’re enjoying a creative weekend! 20 creators have joined us so far, spending one hour on various artistic pursuits then sharing what they’ve made in our gallery.
Time for us to feature a few of these artworks – before you jump over to the full gallery and explore for yourselves.
Ellen Million, the founder of Sketch Fest, had the first upload this month! In this sketch, she’s roughing in the illustration for a bookplate design for the Protection Inc. book series.
When Julie Rabischung saw Natta’s prompt of “Enchanted roses,” she said, “I couldn’t resist this prompt!! Roses are my favorite flowers.” Using watercolors, colored pencils, and white gouache, she created this trio of blooming roses amidst sparkles of magic. You can purchase the original 4″ x 6″ sketch for $18, or snag a print for $7.
Inspired by Mayumi Ogihara’s prompt of “Autumn Coloured Mermaid,” Jenny Heidewald sketched this mermaid with a starfish in her flowing tresses.
This pretty prancing pegasus is being sketched by Jill Britt, inspired by Linda Sayegh’s “Pegasus flight” prompt.
Letesha Gaither took Afke van Herpt’s prompt of “Eyes telling a story” and drew this evocative eye telling “Aged Stories.”
Amy Sue Stirland used her time to create these three lovely pumpkin softies! Inspired by Heather Kilgore’s “Where are my pumpkins?” prompt, Amy said, “I needed new softies in my blue and grey autumn tones. What a great prompt!!”
That’s it on our featured illustrations tonight! Hop on over to Sketch Fest #112 to see more and shop the gallery. And don’t forget to drop by the blog tomorrow for more.
