Pet portrait pendants

So I'm ready to head off to the market on Sunday (hopefully, if the weather holds up!) I got my awning, my chairs, table, display, 20 bird pendants, moral support ;) *wink wink, coco* and now... My 2 pet portrait pendants. Gimme photos of your pets and I'll turn them into "object d'art". :)

  1. They turned out lovely! I do hope you'll take the photos with you so the folks will see how well you were able to draw them. Kudos for doing Xena's portrait - had it been up to me, I would have ended up with a black blob, but you've managed to catch the depth and shades in her shiny black fur. :)
    I hope you do well, but above all, look at it as a fun adventure!

  2. *teehee!* :D Crossing everything the weather holds out for you. Go forth and multiply these beauties! X

  3. Thanks Souslis! :) Yup! I'm planing on doing so. As a matter of fact, I printed up a little laminated info leaflet I'm gonna leave on display on the table for folks to read. Will upload it so'z y'all can see what I'm talking about. :)
    Black animals (or black anything, for that matter) is hard to render, and this was even harder to do with the markers since they were picking up the colours that were already there (blending colours together on the surface can be a blessing or a curse!) I had to use a somewhat pixelated technique to avoid this... Hence the polka-dotty look.

    Thanks Carrie! Unfortunately... The rain started yesterday and its been grey skies ever since. :( I hope it clears up for Sunday. It's a bugger of a timing!!


Thanks for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave me a comment! :)
