Morticia!

Halloween came early for me! I had this awesome challenge given the choice of of Mr. Adams, Frankenstein & Lurch...then Morticia was offered & couldn't pass up the challenge.  & what a challenge it was, I absolutely stink at portraits, they simply just never seem to come out looking like they should.  Needless to say this was amazing practice & I'm really pleased with the way Mr. Bat came out... So here she is after a week worth of being in the throes of sketching!

& after being told, please no butterflies, this is Mortica now... well, this is when Mr. Bat came to mind. Ironically enough, after my attempts of adding the bat to keep this piece as scary as can be... I ask Maddie, well, what do you think? Her reply was, "awww, I love the bat, he's so fluffy!" lol.

  3. I can only say that I am amazed by your skills...

    And I don't think that Mr. Bat is too fluffy or something. He fits rather well, I think :)

  5. This is amazing! I can't get over the texture you have given to the bats wings, so delicate. I think you are being too hard on yourself when you say you "stink at portraits", as this is beautiful.
