Tanya’s Birthday Drawing!

Good Afternoon!

Tomorrow is Tanya (another friend/ co-worker)’s Birthday. :) she saw the drawings i made for Pegah and Grace, and wanted one of her own! It came out really well! :) Since its supposed to snow, we did her birthday celebrations this morning, just so nothing got delayed! i had a blueberry bagel with Strawberry cream cheese! THAT is a first for me. the cream cheese, that is. :) Anywhoo.. onto the drawing!

Here it is!

i drew her bracelets, necklace and even her wrist tattoo. :) i’m very pleased with how it came out!

I also made brownies (from scratch). Boxed brownies do NOT taste great. i chopped up some semi-sweet chocolate to throw on top. it melted at the end.. so yummy! its an easy recipe, i’ll post it up at a later date. :)

Next week is another birthday! I need to start making his birthday drawing. i already loaded up on cocoa powder and sugar and supplies for more brownies! There are many ideas floating around this big head of mine! :)

After brownies i decided to try out a new pattern i made. it was supposed to be a different animal.. but as it progressed it ended up looking like a chipmunk.. but i decided that its a mouse with stubby tail. :) Would you pay money for This? i’d like to sell them and make kids smile. :) but this guy is WEIRD looking!

Have a lovely day! :)

Grace’s B-day Drawing

It is yet another fellow employee, Grace‘s Birthday! So i made her as a cartoon illustration the same way i did for Pegah’s Birthday!

I’m currently stuffing my face of a birthday Cinnamon Raisin bagel with butter, and a chocolate frosted donut and some glazed munchkins. i’m so FULL!

i also made some chocolate brownies real quick last night from scratch for Grace. They went over pretty well!

i need to make more illustrations. This one came out pretty well. I didn’t have an entry for Illustration Friday this week! :( I rushed a drawing and it came out very badly. So i wanted to try again, but i couldn’t get what i wanted to draw, to come out of my brain!

I also need to be cleaner. Straighter, much smoother lines. Simple, but perfect.. rather than messy, crooked and over-worked. I have a tendency to add too much. Thats my goal. Simplify my drawings. :)

Also, any feedback AT ALL is very much appreciated. :) Suggestions? Critiques?

Anyone want a drawing done of themselves?
Email me a photo you would like me to use: ravenastoria@gmail.com

Take care. Have a wonderful day!

Pegah’s Birthday

Hi again! who am i saying hello to?

.. i wonder who actually reads this blog… anyway…

Today is my co-worker/ friend Pegah’s Birthday! :) So i decided to make her a picture in illustrator. :) I drew her neat brown boots with thick socks, long dress/skirt and her awesome scarf from Pakistan. i didnt know the design too well cause its always wrapped around her neck, but i tried. it kind of looks like a Christmas camouflage haha. She liked it very much. :) So here it is. :)
