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  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. 😉 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. 😉


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!

Old Fan Comic / Science Project – “Learn About Heat with Ember and Akira”

Old Fan Comic / Science Project – “Learn About Heat with Ember and Akira”

I’m a fan and subscriber of a YouTube artist called Jenna Drawing. Two of her original characters are named Ember and Akira, and she occasionally draws them on her channel. Ember has fire powers and Akira is her cool warrior friend. Because I liked these characters so much, I decided to do my science project with them!

The assignment was to create a comic that went over everything we had learned about heat. Many people did a simple six- to ten-panel comic, but being the perfectionist I am, I went way overboard and made mine nine pages. Because the comic was so long, I never had time to ink it, and it’s in a sloppier art style than how I usually draw. I did get a good grade on the project, though, so I figured I would post it to my blog! Enjoy “Learn About Heat with Ember and Akira.”

As you can see, this comic isn’t the prettiest piece of artwork on my blog. It is from several months ago, and it was also kind-of rushed. I still think it has its cute and funny moments, though! Let me know in the comments what you think of it and whether or not you learned anything. Pencil Princess away!!

My Music Playlist

I create my best works of art while I’m listening to my favorite songs for inspiration. Many are different and prefer to focus just on their work without any potential distractions going on. Personally, though, it’s a lot easier for me to draw and write while I’m jamming to my “fire mixtape.” I decided to post my go-to playlist to my blog for anyone who’s curious!

I try to add official videos rather than fan-made lyric videos to my playlist so that I can support the original song artists, but I may have made a few mistakes. Anyway, when I want to listen to some music, I turn my playlist on “Shuffle” and let it play in the background while I work! Feel free to do the same if you like what you hear, and make suggestions if you know about a song you think I might like!

Here’s the link. Enjoy! (Or don’t, if you don’t want to. LOL)
