Inspire Me Thursday: ATC

I’ll Remember You

I’ll Remember You (Mixed Media, 2.5 x 3.5 inches)

This is my first “Inspire Me Thursday” entry. Woohoo! This week’s task (ummm… it’s last week’s, actually!) is to create an ATC or artist trading card. There’s only one rule: it should be small, only 2.5 x 3.5 inches, then the rest is up to you and your imagination. :)

I wanted to do this task because it’s been ages since I last used a brush or colored pencils or my markers (I’m practically glued to my pliers and wire cutters), plus, I’ve never done an “Inspire Me Thursday” artwork. So I dove right in and allowed myself to make a mess. I initially wanted to make something cute and light… sigh. But that is not my style so I gave in eventually. I really tried–look, I started with watercolor and I used pink!!! :) But, alas, one stroke led to another… there really was no point in resisting the inevitable. hehehehe. So here’s another “horrorific” artwork from me. :) It’s kinda messy and dark, but I still like it. I’m really starting to like the format so I might do another one tomorrow.

    I love this! Not because she is screaming though … :) well, yeah I do, I love the human quality to her reaction, this is just precious! I like the way you used black, its bold and dramatic! I like the character, and the design of her hair piece. :) Awesome work! I’m glad you participated so that I could experience your art!
