The one that didn't make the cut

So I'm in the middle of my Christmas card designs. This is one of my favorites but after a small poll, it looks like everyone else prefers the dog and cat paintings...:(

Had this idea to make tiny fondant bunnies. Too lazy to whip up a cream cheese frosting to dye green tho, so I ended up using packaged chocolate frosting. For all the effort spent on shaping the fondant, it's actually not very tasty but I think it's cute! And of course, I used my mayo cupcake recipe which has gotten pretty good reviews!

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who messes up. Usually I'll post up the nicer pictures. This is an example of a Great Dane gone wrong (ass the size of a horse) and the correction below. 

I was reading that in order to be a good illustrator, one should be able to draw the same character from various angles and in different poses, without losing the essence of the character. Gosh. It's hard enough to replicate something, even with tracing paper. The subsequent versions sometimes look better, but not always...For now, I'm just going to enjoy painting whatever I like and not worry too much about becoming an illustrator.

Rainy afternoon

Two public holidays in a row means time to squander. Did a teaching session this morning to clock in some extra hours. After spending a 4 figure sum at the vet last week, excess money doesn't hurt :) 
Practicing skin tones and also did a fun submission under the Illustration Friday blog for "hybrid".

Onde-onde, rainbow kueh and a curry puff for my Muslim fans.
Illustrating an idea that someone sent me.

And I'm on the Mrt now to meet my hub :)

Inspired  by the beautiful art of Caitlin Mcgauley. I'm always wishing that I could paint like this person, or that person, but then if I could, what would be the point?
