Sophie the Unicorn

Hey everyone!

I found this blog post in draft mode. I must have forgotten to share my progression of Sophie the unicorn with you all. She's been done and adorable for a while but sitting here in draft mode. It's okay, she's been discovered and she will share her big smile and happy-go-lucky vibe with you all starting from today. 

I wasn't brainstorming how I would draw this piece but much like many of my other pieces, it sort of just came to me on a whim... like I want to draw a unicorn. 





I haven't been able to paint recently but I have been thinking about custom art pieces I would like to offer folks. I haven't gotten it all organized quite yet.. but be on the look out!

Enjoy your weekend and be happy.

Art Updates!

It's been a while since I've shared my newest watercolors. Enjoy the Disney and cacti fun. :)




It's been a busy past 2 months... and my summer internship is almost over just like that.
So glad I was able to paint through much of it and enjoy myself as much as I could. 
As Dory would say, "Just keep swimming". :)

Cacti and Beauty

This was supposed to come a long time ago but I never got around to editing my photos!
A few posts back, I shared the beauty of Arizona as I was experiencing it. As time has passed here, I have grown more busy and less patient with the overwhelming heat this dry summer brings. Going through these pictures to share with you all was a lovely reminder of this succulent-abundant experience I am living. Enjoy all that surrounds you...

Helios Femina Fan Art Progression

Hi everyone,

I found myself really turning to some therapeutic painting this week. I found out one of the comic artists that I have been following was holding a cool contest for fan arts so I decided to make one. I didn't plan it-- probably should have-- but it turned out better than I thought. I combined two of the characters into one person. Here are some photos leading to the finished piece.






And here she is. I combined the Enchantress and Rhea, the main character. I absolutely love her hair. If I wasn't in healthcare, maybe I would dye it like this. Or maybe I will have a job one day that doesn't mind purple hair. :) Here are some screenshots from the comic, Helios Femina. It's free to read online on Webtoons if you want to look it up. :) I really like the use of cool colors in it, which makes me happy. 


Thanks for swinging by. Happy Father's Day tomorrow. I can't celebrate it with my dad but I will be giving him a call. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and Father's Day if applicable as well. 

Cheers, Dana
