I have been MIA the past few weeks, but finally getting my groove back on. About time.. sheesh!
Joni's company, Inktegrity, is releasing this adorable penguin image today, so I held off posting for the release. She is giving the image away to a lucky winner that comments on my post here! So make sure to comment and you will be put into a drawing to receive this adorable little guy and his fishy friend.
Isn't this just the greatest sketch! I decided instead of going with a round card, to give that illusion by hand-cutting rounded corners and inking them to give them dimension. I used a mat board heart, covered it with paper and sanded the edges to give it a worn with love look. The fish pail was cut out and filled in with a thick glossy medium to give the illusion of water. I colored the fish then went over it with a metalic pen, and finally replaced the handle with twine. I decided to give the cute little penguin a heart to hold, so I punched out the heart put a dimensional behind it, cut out the hands then inserted it.
Don't forget to stop by the rest of the Daredevil's blogs (see links on right side bar) to check out there incredible takes on this sketch! They are amazingly talented ladies.
