Finally! Finally I get to play around properly with prettily coloured sharpies… all over someone’s back. Started with the heart and went out from there. It grew!
I’m actually really loving playing around with sharpies on people doing these ‘sorta not really permanent marker tattoo’ thingies. It took a little bit to get used to the way the coloured sharpies work and blend, but I think I’m starting to get the gist of it. When given the chance, I think I have a far better idea of how I’m going to draw a phoenix on a certain someone – though they’ll have to give me a bigger area to work with this time! Please?
In celebration of working with pretty pretty markers, I’ve created a new category for such things, entitled ‘Body Art’. That way they don’t just get thrown straight into the ‘Sketches’ category and that’s it. I figure that my friends will lend me forbearance for a while longer to draw all over them, so there is a fairly decent likelihood that I might post more pictures of them here. Yay for friends who tolerate my eccentricities!
I think that’s about it for today… enjoy the picture, and I’ll see you tomorrow. Phew!
Yes, I’ve been neglectful of updates over the past couple of days… yeep! I’ve been so busy releasing new stuff for Sanu that it just slid by the wayside. The picture above is just the first – a monocle I made a little while back originally for my Lucky Chair, now available for people to buy. It comes with two monocles and the earrings to match. Isn’t it cute?
I’ve recently moved into a brand new location – a sim called Scribble. With the move, you just know I had to update the Lucky Chair with something a bit new and exciting to celebrate the new location. Therefore I made… you guessed it… monocles! They’re now properly signed (rather than the temporary one I popped in store) and added to the regular line. I will be updating the lucky chair with something new fairly soon, so keep an eye out.
Also up in store now is an additional set of jewelry designed to match the Scribble monocles. I did want to display the monocle in the signage too, to show it all together… but… well, you just know that someone out there isn’t going to read the text on the sign with the great big letters saying ‘MONOCLES NOT INCLUDED’ and see the sign above it saying ‘Monocles’ and still not connect the dots. Am I jaded? A little. But lets face it – it would happen. Disgruntled IMs from indignant customers make me grumbley.
This one is not a new release – but I thought I should throw it up here anyway. This is the limited edition Geartime monocle to fulfil the request of a few people for something a bit more steampunky. Only fifty will be sold until they are no longer available at all – and there are less than 5 left in store! So the thing is, if you want one, you’d better move quick.
Phew! That’s enough of the Sanu stuff for now – I should be posting a sketch later today, if I can find the time (and my damn back would stop aching). Have a great day all!
