Little girl with a watering can. by ElsaKroese
Little girl with a watering can.
A few weeks ago my Sister, Jenny, stayed with us for a few days. We spend one afternoon painting and singing along with 90ies/80ies classics. I did actually have a plan with this; the plan being that I wanted to paint a little girl with a watering can, walking towards the tree. Well. My sister decided -when I started painting the character- that instead, It would be this Lego waiter that we dug up from my old lego collection the day before, at my parents house. Ok done!
I kept the original idea as title though, so no, that isn't some kind of mix up.

I wasn't at all worrying about painting well, to be honest. I was just slapping on paint without giving it much thought, so I'm actually surprised that it doesn't look entirely terrible . We had a lot of laughs about the little Lego minifig though, which is pretty much all that matters here, and I figured it was worth a share.

Oh, and it's painted with cheap acrylics on even cheaper canvas board, in case you're interested in that sorta thing.

Whoop. The big dA revamp is here :D. I feel mostly positive about this update, although I've a few nitpicks. The watch feed is interesting, although I wish I could customize/filter it (and the same goes for the Today page, I find the lower content blocks of that page far more interesting than the first few- wouldn't it have been awesome if we could puzzle together our own today page content blocks?).
I'm not sure what to think of the activity feed on the profiles though, I might just have to get used to that. What do you guys think of this update? (edit:Wow.. big font is big)

Today it's Spindrift's (my webcomic) 3rd anniversary, but with everything that has been going on in the last year I find it tough to celebrate. For my watchers who are interested to know what's been going on with me, I've written a blog on the Spindrift page explaining the whole deal. 
Small warning, it's not exactly a fun read, but it's how things are.

Cheves by ElsaKroese
Cheves
I'm trying to get back into doing my art-study-schedule, and this was one of the warm-up sketches I made this week. Since I'm trying to have a bit more fun with it, I decided to draw something I like and just goof around with that. So, I drew Cheves,the Alar in exile, from my webcomic Spindrift (www.spindrift-comic.com).
I wasn't entirely sure if he was smoldering or just being bored, but the majority of response so far taught me that indeed he is smoldering XD (yay!)

Spindrift rocks my socks - it's one of the most entertaining comics I have ever had the joy of reading. Sometimes I find that I haven't even taken in the dialogue because I just skip ahead to see what the next gorgeous visual will be! The plot is original and you immediately feel the urge to discover absolutely everything about this incredible universe you're creating. 
Simply marvelous work. I can hardly contain my excitement in seeing what the future holds for Spindrift. Stoked

That's the good part. You don't need to lift a finger!
Me on the other hand had to write this comment on thirty-something people's profiles (where I figured I could get away with it) and my dear victim :iconofonesoul: needs to wade through each comment I mentioned her in in her inbox! <<<And I'm still at it! AHA!

Ohman, I adore Spindrift. Every time I read it I'm blown away by the spectacular visuals. It is, aesthetically, one of my favorites and I can never wait to read the next page... must have next page!!  Very good work.
