Blogger Portrait -- Cuterebecca!

Hellooooooooo, pplz! What's up? Karalee here!

I've been busy researching writing stuff with Mom. NaNoWriMo tips and worldbuilding techniques and character profiles... I've also been designing a new species of "monster" for a story. ("Monster" in quotes because they're really a kind of creature... the word monster is rather ambiguous and derogatory in definition.)

They've got lots of joints (so they're extremely flexible), and they have mantis-like heads, and very long claws! (They were supposed to look quite creepy, being intended as antagonists, but I'll admit I'm starting to see them as a little cute. Oops.)

There's a lot to think about when creating a species! So many directions and possibilities to explore! I hope to post some sketches of them another time. 😊

(A lot of what I've got so far is little, silly cartoons of author-vs-creation shenanigans. Generally me'n'them driving each other batty. 😜)

ANYway! XD Let's get to the real purpose of today's post -- Flora Cutegirl's Blogger Portrait!

Here's her comment requesting a portrait!

However, I completely messed up on the username when gathering the reference photo, and accidentally looked on the wrong account!

This Deer's animal name was close to the one requested... and I accidentally ended up with a rough sketch of a sweater-dress-wearing chibi with a pizza on her head before realizing my mistake. (No pics of that, though -- sorry.)

Here's the REAL reference photo -- and here's the finished Blogger Portrait! *insert the customary fanfare* Ta-daaaaaaaaa!

Flora's form only listed the color of her hair, not the length or style... so I tried to wing it. 😬 I hope it's okay, Flora! 😯

One of the most complicated pieces of clothing for Flora's portrait was the Straw Crown, but I'm very happy with how it turned out! 😃 There's not much to say about the Worn Blanket (converted into a Worn Dress) or the Silver Chain.

For the background, I used a dusky green background, then used the pattern brush called Victorian in a slightly lighter shade, then created a sort of hazy spiral using a reduced-opacity Wood pattern brush. (Why I used Wood, I don't know.)

That's all for now! I'll see you guys around! 😁 *waves* Bye!

      And no, I haven't forgotten that time when we talked about drawing a tiny Thomas Brodie-Sangster... I'm just not sure if I can bring even more "cute factor" to a face with such big eyes to start with?

      Do you think it's possible, Lost?? DO YOU?? XDDDDD


    2. Uh, that actually wasn't what I had in mind. o,o BUT SURE!!! XD BARRY ALLEN WOULD BE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
