Goldilocks



Tried to do something a little more cartoony than I've done lately on the blog. I wanted to work on this longer, but must get to other work. Also, here's the new profile pic:

good stuff

You're getting better by the day Sarah.
This is impressive.
There's some sort of lightness to your goldilocks, and a really subtle emotion to the girl below that wasn't there in your other drawings.

This is excellent work

I agree with Pascal about these last couple posts. All your stuff has been fantastic, but I think maybe now that you've found a painting style you're comfortable and confident with, that there's a new found freedom and vibrancy that is seeping into these latest posts. Congrats, you are on to something!

I was just gonna ask to see this bigger. :)
There was indeed a burst of growth here, no? Or at least a few discoveries.

Love the twinki shaped bears! Those expressions and poses are great! Also really like the profile pic. The movement in the hair is really nice!

Kent said...

I love it!!! (It sort of looks like Goldilocks and the Three Totoro Bears!) The painting has a wonderful storybook feel to it!

And the portrait is even lovelier!

BGOZ said...

Great stuff. I love Poppa Bear's expression. Your digital painting is some awsomnity that's for sure. There's like a whole library worth of stories on your site. Keep it up.

Yay! Thanks everyone! When I've tried to colour my sketches before, I felt like I always lost the spark of the original drawing. I think this way of painting is working so much better for me because the original sketch is still a large part of the finished piece :)

mike said...

wow, sarah! these last four you posted are just FANTASTIC. the egyption girl has got to be my fave. and i think i can see how pippy started out as an army guy (sgt rock?).

rumarco said...

I've just discovered your blog and it looks very interesting, very nice drawings, style and colors.
I love Pippi and the Egyptian girl!

I like the (as Mad Guru said) Twinkie shaped bears! Love the cartoony-ness. Also the self portrait is neat with a lot of mystique but quite intense. Could we see a smiley/cartoony/Yay kind of Sarah?

that's a really striking image. i love it.

Vanhoozerbot said...

Wow... you are REALLY rockin out now.
Your painting is getting better by the day.
Love the way you painted your hair.
And thos bears made me laugh out loud.

Thanks everyone again. I'm so glad the bears went over. I saw them in my mind before I got going more like half-pill shaped, but I like how they ended up better. It is kind of like a twinkie :)

And Mike you were right, Pippi was supposed to be Sgt. Rock. I keep trying and all my drawings of him keep looking all eighties comic-ish. Blah.

And Tony, maaaybe :) The last one I had up here was kind of that, but I don't think it really looked much like me in the end. I guess this one doesn't really either, but it does look like my nose just got bitten by a rambunctious kitten, which is pretty accurate these days :)

Breadwig said...

Really Great! Love the papa bear especially, and that look on Goldilock's face. Ha! Priceless.

Wow! I just found your blog on a random google search! Great work... I love this one profile pic!

I wish I could be as talented as you, lol... check out my work at www.amy-wong.com! Maybe we could work together in something in the future! So be sure to drop me a line~
