I was really clueless as to what I could draw for the Themepark theme. I didn’t want to do a huge and complicated drawing with rollercoasters and colors and insanity and spend hours and hours working on it.
So I thought about the stuff I like about themeparks and my mind went to DisneySea in Japan when I first went there last year. I was amazed by the amount of girls who were wearing costumes and were running around with park merchandise and popcorn buckets. They were so cute!
I decided to use my Faber-Castell Polychromos color pencils for the illustration. I think they can give drawings a nice « children’s book » feel.
Still following the 52-Week Illustration Challenge! The theme of the second week was « Outdoors ». Now that I’m living in the land of bears, I imagined that an encounter with a bear in the wild would be an awesome thing to draw.
Here is the final piece:
I spent a lot of time on this one. I am really a slow worker when it comes to creating a finished piece. I noticed it for the first time when I was working on inktober. I start over and over again and do 1000 sketches searching for a style. Do I want something more realistic or more cartoony? Make up your mind, woman!
In 2 months, my life will be turned upside down.
My husband, our cats and I are moving to MONTREAL! I have to find a new job, a new apartment, make new friends, survive a Canadian winter… scary but exciting!
See you soon Canada!
