That’s a wrap, folks! We’re putting #EMGSketchFest 93 to bed, though you may see some additional illustrations added to the gallery – don’t forget to visit and explore. You also might find some new art to decorate your walls or gift to friends and family for the winter holidays.
How about a last few featured illustrations? Sounds great to me!
Cindy Hill did two sketches this Sketch Fest and one of them is this great “Ice Dragon” with finely segmented scales. This is a work-in-progress and it’s pretty cool.
This clever combination of decorative fonts is the work of Francis Bax – she plans to finish this “Word Salade” up later!
Inspired by Becca “Boo” Moore’s prompt of “Frozen Heart,” Afke van Herpt’s mind conjured up this image – and she created it as a stamp! It’s a bit off-prompt, but still fabulous.
Amy Sue Stirland sketched this “Majestic Deer,” and expects it’ll make a fine watercolor. We’ll have to keep an eye out for what she does this with this one!
We close with Maria J. William’s “Let It Rain,” a gorgeous illustration of fairy beauty and abandon as this tiny creature with butterfly wings dances in the rain beneath a leafy umbrella. You can get the original sketch, 6″ x 8″ colored pencil and white charcoal on toned paper. Prints available for $5 – $10.
We hope you enjoyed this #EMGSketchFest weekend! If you’re new, we do these every month and everyone’s invited – just register at the site. You can submit prompts or even participate with creations of every stripe – from jewelry and crochet to illustrations and stamps.
Are you a fan of spooky fun? You have got to check out #EMGSketchFest 92! I’m serious – since it’s October, we have a ton of fun and spooky creations in the gallery. You can even pick up prints or original art of fantastic witches, ethereal owls, or even a gothic mermaid!
Okay, enough chatter. Let’s skip to the featured illustrations for the evening!
Nicole Madden brings us this ghostly cutie based on Sarah Alden’s “cute ghost” prompt. The bow-wearing ghosties are adorable, and we love the stripes and stitched-mouth look on her main figure!
Kathy Nutt’s “New Moon Unicorn” is a celebration of stylized lines and wild beauty. All captured by Micron pen! An inspired interpretation of Beth “Boo” Moore’s “Dark Unicorn” prompt.
We opened with a ghost; how can we not close with a witch? Maria J. William drew this bewitching beauty with colored pencils and white charcoal on toned paper. The original and prints are available!
We’re signing off for the night, but feel free to keep rocking #EMGSketchFest by visiting the gallery and even creating! (Don’t forget to use our official hashtag, #EMGSketchFest when posting to social media.)
EMG Sketch Fest 91 is drawing to a close, and it’s been a great one! There are dozens of ink and pencil sketches, paintings, handcrafts, and so much more over at the full gallery – which is full of autumnal delight, witches and fairies, magpies and crows and cats.
We’ve selected a few illustrations to feature that’ll intrigue you and have you clicking through to the full gallery in no time.
This beautiful cat from Maria J. William is just waiting for you to start reading before she happily and pointedly walks across your book and sits on it, purring all the while. You can purchase a glossy print of this 6″ x 8″ brown pencil and white charcoal drawing on toned paper for only $10.
This young fellow is ready to get back to school in Kir Talmage‘s adorable depiction of this kid dragon at a bus stop. Look at his little backpack! We can’t wait to watch this pencil sketch develop further.
Charlie Galvin‘s “Gruff Old Wizard” isn’t taking any guff, and isn’t above a little magical assist to get those darned kids off his lawn. So, y’know, stay off his lawn.
That’s it from #EMGSketchFest 91! (Have you been remembering to use our official hashtag?) More illustrations may be added over the next several hours, but our event officially ends at 12 PM AKST. We hope you all had fun – check our social media feeds next week for the announcement of October’s Sketch Fest dates!
It’s the August Sketch Fest Saturday, and we’re here to share some of the marvelous art that’s been posted to the #EMGSketchFest gallery since it began yesterday. Have you been visiting, prompting, admiring, creating? If the answer is no, let me tempt you!
Julie Rabischung drew the charming Mr. Shroom, about which she says: “Meet the grumpy and lonely Mr Shroom! I had so much fun drawing him!! He definitely needs more work but I might draw him again and invent him some adventures… ” The original drawing is colored pencils and ink on a 4″ x 6″ piece of Bristol, and is available for $12.
Kathy Nutt sketched this fantastic fellow – or, as she put it, a “[m]agical antelope of the forest.” He’s a handsome beast indeed, and the mane and tail of flowering branches is inspired.
Using the prompt “lonely mushroom,” Joanna Bromley sketched this mushroom-hatted fairy creature. The original sketch is an ink illustration on 3.5″ x 5″ Kraft paper. You can purchase it for $32!
ElmaBree added this little witch, telling us: “The Little Black Rose Witch [is] drawn with chameleon color tone pencils on mixed media paper.” You can pick up a 5″ x 7″ print of this tiny witch for $10.
