Sugar Skull Girls and Arlo Dog ATCs

Four Calavera Girl ATCs
Each 2.5′ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners on Bristol board.

These were made for a Sugar Skull Girls Swap at atcsforall.com. I am not sure whether to call them Sugar Skull girls or Calavera girls (calavera means skull in Spanish). I think it is the same thing, but someone please tell me if I am wrong! This face painting style is done in celebration of The Day of the Dead. They are also fun to do!

I’ve actually done some other work that I really want to post, but that stuff was made for a secret santa swap at illustratedatcs, so I cannot post them until the recipients have received them. Arrrgh!

Arlo Dog ATC
2.5″ x 3.5″ Copics, fine liners, white gel pen

Arlo Dog is a minor warlock specializing in the removal of drawing-block. He has a sister named Astrid who specializes in the removal of writer’s block. Their mother can do a little of both, though less reliably.

In fact he did help me get over a couple days worth of drawing block funk, mostly. I’m hoping this week’s topic at Illustration Friday, “Tree”, will help too!

Thanks for stopping in! Tons of progress pics below.
