Hello Hello Everyone!
A big warm welcome to my new site!! I still need to change and re-write things (and add a logo!), but the basics are there and too much time would pass if I’d wait any longer. I got rambling to do you know hehe.
So at the top you have the main menu with a shiny Lookbook, where you can see peeks of recent art I did. I’ll update this regularly You have an easy way to contact me via a…contact form. A huge thank you goes to my friend MZ. Sometimes I really felt that I was stalking him with way too many questions, but he’s always so friendly and helpful…making sure I don’t get too confused. MZ, thank you SO much for everything so far!Read More»
Hmm that was said in a weird opera voice…in my head anyway.
So, no recipe this time, but a drawing tutorial! A while ago, I got asked by the lovely Marieke Bos, if I was interested in participating in a creative project. It’s for the site Swap-bot and here lots of creatives swap handmade goodies with each other. The group Dutch Swappers magically transformed the month December in an online advent calendar and every day a creative swapper reveals his/her gift.
And yes, you guessed it right, today is my day and I decided to create a quick tutorial on how I draw my cupcakes ^_^. There are really just a few basic lines and by switching up the expression you can create a new little cupcake in a few seconds. This is the first time writing a step by step tutorial and I will record a short video how I draw and paint it soon. However, the quality isn’t THAT great. I will re-upload it soon again. My laptop shut off while I was saving the tutorial, so I lost some of my editing. Not a big deal…until I noticed that the file had become corrupt. The horror. I had a deadline to upload it a bit after midnight on December 13th, therefore I couldn’t re-create what I had, so this tutorial is a quick version.
Have fun trying it out and if you drew it and want to show it…let me know! If there are enough cupcake doodlers, I will create a folder on my Facebook page so people can post it there. I’d love to see it 😀 Feel free to experiment with the frosting shapes and faces. I’ll show lots of cupcake examples soon!
