Yay, I have a shop. Its not got a lot in it yet but i've got one! Need to take more pics of my work and get them all priced and uploaded. Also have more supplies on the way so I'll have even more pieces hopefully by the end of the month! Lots of kilt pins, cabochans, threads and wires on the way. Feeling very inspired!
Feeling... creative & Inspired

Its almost there and then i'll be able to move on to the others. Might not be able to get much done over the next week though as I've got quite a few shifts at work, but hopefully soon.
Upcoming D.C characters:
Also got a few more pieces of jewellery made so I will upload them soon once they're all framed!

So after Uni I finally decided I would start drawing for myself again! 4 years of project work driven by design briefs and personal opinion of tutors determining whether I was good or not gets a little bit tiring and can put you off drawing altogether. But after reading Hush by Jeff Loeb and Jim Lee, plus a little encouragement from my other half, I got the inspiration to do a wee D.C piece of my own. Just something silly and fun and in my own simple style. So I decided to base it on my favourite heroines and villainess’ of D.C. I know this has probably been done to death, but I want a turn lol =D
The characters I’ve sketched are Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Huntress, Harley Quinn, Batgirl, Hawkgirl, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Lois Lane and Batman. I’ve had fun doing the initial sketches although I had a bit of troble trying to get the pose for Huntress right. Now I've started colouring my first one which is Poison Ivy and Batman. Once they’re all finished I’ll edit them all together in one piece. Eventually I hope to get round to doing a few of the male characters too to suit the female ones.
Here is a sneaky preview of the WIP...
All thats left now is to add a bit of tone, add the vines, a bit of texture then a final touch up and the first piece is done =D
Really looking forward to the final piece so I can get started on the next one, which I think will be Lois.
Thanks for reading
