WrightStuff said...

Is she thinking... "Do I want to know what's tickling my hair?"

Gorgeous as always!

R. Jacob said...

She looks like something is bugging her!

Christine said...

She's so pretty and I love her hair ornament, lol.

Melisa said...

She has the cutest nose. :) She doesn't look thrilled with the beetle being in her hair, but she's not freaking out like most would, LOL.

The beetle is just the right touch of creepy/cuteness. Been loving all your girlie sketches.

And thanks so much for voting for my t-shirt design--it meant a lot to me. :-)

Off topic, are you a fan of the 80s cartoon Jem and the Holograms? Another blogger (Aquariann) and I are trying to organize coordinated Jem-related art posts. I'd love to see what you could come up with.

Oh, she is so pretty! I think her expression will change when she discovers who has attached themselves to her! Love this. :-)

Missy said...

So wonderful and pretty, love her hair, even the bug in it! I also greatly enjoy her shirt!

Cori Lynn Berg said...

What a sweet face!

- hey bro! - said...

Love your way of doing eyes, so beautifully shaded and expressive!
The beetle looks really cool as well~

My Style Canvas said...

Hey--just saw your comment. Thanks for responding. I don't know yet what date this would be for, though I would think relatively soon (Sun., July 3 or July 10th, since the 3rd is on a holiday weekend and might not be practical for some.) Basically it would just be a day where we post Jem-related art, preferably after getting others to participate as well. I don't know if there's a theme beyond Jem though Aquariann and I both love the character Stormer. If you know others you think might be interested spread the word, and let's see if we can get a few or more people participating. Once I know what date works for you guys I'll make a post about it.

How cute is she?!!! I love her eyes as usual - you draw the best eyes! and her little companion is cute not creepy :-)

Ha, ha! I love the contrast of her cute face and the gigantor beetle! Very cool! Insects make for great art subjects. I would be completely freaking out if I were her though...seriously.

Maryjane-The Beehive Cottage said...

I love your art! So very talented!!!

Sissy Sparrows said...

I really love your illustration and I have to agree with you....Sundays are my most favourite day as well.

I LOVE this piece. It's the perfect mix of cute and an unexpected bit of darkness...
