Line Art: Owl Girl

Line Art: Owl Girl

Eeeeeeeeee! Sorry, I’m just so excited to be drawing these fun animal girls again. This adorable owl girl is another one in my series of animal-themed coloring pages! Someday, I hope to have enough to fill a coloring book. This one was a request from a Facebook friend of mine who asked, “Can you do an owl girl?” Well, I can and I did! (Even though it took me a long time.)

OMG. She looks like she wants to give you a hug! Don’t leave her hanging!!!

Starting from the top, her hair poof is Β in the shape of a feather! In addition, her pigtails represent the ear fluff of an actual owl. I wanted to give her cute cartoon eyebrows like I usually give my characters, but still convey the intense-looking eyebrows that owls have. I did my best to combine the two! Does it work? Let me know what you think!

The pointy nose I drew on her face is somewhat beak-like, I think. Her glasses are supposed to look like cute, tiny wings. Since owls are often portrayed as wise, I immediately thought of this girl being a student! Thus, I drew her in a private school outfit which I think turned out great. Her fluffy jacket is intended to be like an owl’s feathery wings! Last but not least, her socks have the same “v”-like feathery pattern that I often see on cartoon owls. Adorable!!

She’s also meant to look a little bit younger than my other animal girls. If I were to rank them from youngest to oldest, I would say that this owl girl is first, then the kitty girl, the bat girl, the polar bear girl, the ladybug girl, and finally the fox girl. Even if they’re not all the same age, I could totally see the five of them hanging out together.

Please give suggestions as to what kind of animal character you’d like me to draw next! Even if it takes me a while, I’ll do my best to acquiesce to your request. πŸ˜‰ Or, if you want something more specific, you can always commission me to draw an existing character or one of your own. My prices are really cheap, if I do say so myself! And I do say so. So there. LOL As always, thanks to my lovely Citizens!

Cute Character: Queen of Clubs

Cute Character: Queen of Clubs

Salutations, citizens! Today’s drawing is a character that represents the Queen of Clubs (the playing card). This is actually a re-draw / redesign of a character I drew back in April of this year! Since I had so much fun drawing her the first time, I decided to draw her again in a more dynamic pose, and with color.

This old drawing looks a little stiff, and the way she’s holding her staff seems forced / unnatural. Also, that crown is going to fall off of her head! Aah!

This new version of the queen looks very sweet and elegant, but that staff makes me think she’s ready to defend herself if need be.

This illustration was done on art paper with a black gel pen, scanned, and colored using Photoshop. Crafty B and I tried adding some shading, but our process was really difficult and convoluted, so we only shaded in a few places. Hopefully I’ll be able to re-upload this drawing with different / more shading!

The club motif is carried on throughout her outfit including in the shape of her hair and her staff. If you spot any other things that look like a club (clover), let me know in the comments! Including the ones I already pointed out, there are nine, so I’d love to see how many my Citizens can spot. πŸ˜‰

In other news, I added a new design to my RedBubble! This one is a white heart pattern on a red gradient background. It’s available on over 30 different products including hardcover journals, tote bags, and phone cases. There’s something for everybody! Well, everybody that likes hearts, that is.

Personally, I love how it looks on a spiral notebook.

Feel free to take a look at my shop and give me suggestions for more drawings and designs. Thanks!

Commissions are OPEN!

I have been considering it for a while and have decided that I am going to accept art commissions. If you don’t know what an art commission is, it’s when someone asks an artist to create something for them. In my case, I will be doing character illustrations! Examples of my artwork can be seen on my blog, where I have artwork like my Ladybug Girl and Bee Detectives.

Character Illustrations by Pencil Princess

I can draw an already-existing character or bring your original ideas to life.

A character illustration includes a black-and-white drawing of one existing character with no background. Additional characters are extra.

Close-up (shoulders to top of head) – $1 base amount

Medium (torso to top of head) – $2 base amount

Full-body (entire body) – $3 base amount

+$1 for design of a new character

+$1 for color

+$1 for shading

+$1 for a complex background (objects, scenery, etc.)

All prices are negotiable and subject to future change.

My Commission Process

This is how commissioning me will go.

Step 1: You contact me and tell me that you would like to commission me.

Step 2: I let you know that I can do your commission and tell you what the price will be.

Step 3: If you are willing to pay that price, you pay me half of whatever that is before I start.

Step 4: Once I have confirmed that I have received half of the agreed-upon price, I will begin working on your commission as soon as possible.

Step 5: I will send sketches and progress updates periodically, and you can tell me what to do or change. Up to five free changes during the sketch / design process. Once inked, it will cost extra for any changes.

Step 6: Once I am finished, I will let you know and send a watermarked, low-resolution version of the finished product.

Step 7: You will pay me the other half of the agreed-upon price.

Step 8: I will send you the unwatermarked, full-quality piece of artwork. You will then own the character / piece of art that has been sent to you and will be able to do whatever you like with it.

NSFW commissions will be declined.

Currently, my email address / Google account, mixquest101@gmail.com, is the only way to contact me for commissions. If you also have a Google account, we could use Google Hangouts to communicate. I usually check both more than once a day.

Thanks for taking the time to read all of this! Commissions will be open until further notice. πŸ™‚

Cute Character: Sheep Dude

Cute Character: Sheep Dude

I’ve mentioned a few times (in my Sweetie Bee and Bee Detectives posts) that I want to write a story featuring the Bumble Twins and other cute characters in the same style. That idea lead me to come up with this cool-looking sheep guy!

Sheep Dude
This dude looks pretty neat. Would you want to hang out with him?

As my Citizens may know, this drawing is not my first anthropomorphic lamb. In fact, this woolly broseph’s appearance was largely inspired by the character in my recent illustration, The Survivor.

I don’t have a name for my sheep character yet, but he does have a personality. I see him as a teenage punk who would probably be into things like skating, loud music, and getting into arguments in the comments sections of Internet videos. He would likely get on Sweetie Bee’s nerves at times, but I think that they would get along for the most part.

Do you have any ideas about this character’s name? If so, please let me know, as I am open to suggestions! I do my best to post every day at 8:00 AM EST, so be sure to stop by tomorrow. Until then, Pencil Princess out!
