A festive mission

As we’re arranging a kids’ party in the near future, I’ve gotten a very festive mission.

The theme of the party is woodland creatures, and I’ve been asked to draw up some cartoonish creatures to go with the table decorations.

So I drew up some outlines with a pencil, went over my favourite ones with a pen and added some colour to them using my pro markers.

Some of the creatures I’m quite happy with, and some I don’t like at all. But I’ve been told that they look good enough, so I guess I should settle with that.

Anyway, I drew up the creatures on a marker pad, glued them to a thicker cardboard paper and cut them out with a scissor.

I made seven in total, and this is how they looked ( I used a reference photo from google by the way):

      1. I started my art journey in June of 2015, so I enjoy getting to know others who are pursuing art. I’m glad I found your blog. I think your drawings and paintings are very good.

      2. I really never thought I could ever learn to draw. I figured I’d give up after a week or two of trying. Instead, here I am three years later, drawing, painting, entering art shows, and becoming a part of the arts community in our area. It really has been an exciting and rewarding journey.

      3. That sounds very familiar! 🙂 I’ve very recently taken part in my local community painting club, and are planning to soon show of some of my paintings for the very first time 🙂

      4. Good luck! As a member of the art club, I not only entered the show, I also helped with all the behind-the-scenes work — learning how to check paintings in, how to set up the displays, keeping records of the entries — and it was a very enjoyable experience. I also monitored the show on two different mornings. That was fun, too. I was very hesitant about joining art clubs, and for a time I felt a little intimidated by all the talent surrounding me. Now that I’m getting to know the other artists, I’m gaining more confidence in my own abilities. I’m starting to feel like a real part of the clubs and community now.

      5. I’m very glad to hear that! 🙂 I’ve also waited a long time before joining, in the fear of not beeing good enough. But, as I figured out quite quickly, it’s not about how good you are but sharing the love for it 🙂

      6. Very true. It’s good to be in a creative atmosphere. That alone is inspiring, I think. At first, I was hesitant about asking any questions. As I’ve gotten better acquainted with other members, though, I’m a lot more verbal. I enjoy sharing my artwork and learning more from other artists.

  1. Ohhh what a wonderful idea! I’ve done a few parties myself back some time ago and LOVE to come up with designs and stuff for decorations! These look awesome, I’m sure the kids will love it!
