A couple people asked where these specific color themes were coming from, and the answer is a swap called “Build-a-Girl” with three columns of suggestions in these categories: Physical attributes (like wings, antlers, animal ears, warts, claws), Props (feathers, flowers, gears, elaborate jewelry, cigarette, books) and specific color schemes chosen by the swap organizer.
The above colors schemes are Pink/Orange/Green, Monochromatic Blue, Sepias, and Black/White/Red/Pink. Some of these color combinations I never use – like green with pink or orange! But it’s a great opportunity to do things outside your comfort zone.
Thanks for dropping in! Hello once again to Paint Party Friday!
Great drawings. I especially like the black, white, pink and red one.
neat cat girls!
Cindy, great Characters. I really like the blue one, for some reason. The color scheme on the grayish illustration works beautifully
beautiful … as always. but i really like Fern!!
These are great! Thank you for sharing the progress pictures too, it’s good to see how you’ve built up the colours.
Dear Cindy, thanks for your nice comment ;) I love your drawings and my favourite is the grey one – I like the idea of “build a girl” – have a lovely and creative week…
oh, I love these! Especially the pink/green/orange one and the blue one. It’s so interesting to try out different colourcombinations. Have you ever participated in Summer of Color? That’s every year during June and July, and every week you get 2 or 3 colours to work with. One of my favorite challenges…..
I have seen that one but haven’t done it. Good idea!
Fun drawings and palette play ~ clearly an inspiring swap for you ~ enJOY!
I think I like Fara the best. Interesting way to set up a drawing. It is good to be forced to use colors you rarely do. I myself am guilty of a significant lack of blues. LOL
I especially love the hair net!
I’m so glad! I love it too. I also love that it is called a snood! :D
Cat ears fit those two wonderfully well. Had to chuckle on seeing that first one with the head wear. Good ones, Cindy!
Wow……these are great. Your Fair Maiden collection is really growing! I love the monochromatic and sepia color themes……very creative set!
Oooh, hello! I’ve had such a gray existence lately that it’s nice to come here into your technicolor world again. I love these color schemes! You’ve used them beautifully! These maidens are wonderful, especially their soulful eyes and cute noses. :D And that mushroom hat! I must have one.
