Here is a gift I did for a friend for his girlfriend. There were more photos, but I ended up going with this one in the end. She likes ice cream, history and Jane Austen. She is German, and has a male Beta fish called "Orchy"...at least I think that's right.
I like the simplicity of this style...but I think its time to change it up a bit and get more involved with the detail. I made a concious effort a while back to simplify things down as much as I could, to see the overall design. There is still much to be done in that regard...but I feel like I can start some secondary designing (with in the overall design).
More of the studies...this time with hands...some flowers too. It seems as though everything can be made into simple platonic forms...then secondary forms are added later, then tertiary, then texture and effects. Just a way of fun approach.
