Today I'm sharing a card that is a bit different. I've been watching regularly Lisa's Youtube channel (Lachri Fine Art) and she is so Amazing!! I just wish that I could draw and colour someday a half as good as she does. I've been so inspired by her work and wanted to try to draw something by myself. And since a daughter of my dear friend is turning four soon and since she is crazy about Frozen.. I saw a chance to try and I took it. I couldn't possibly draw Anna or Elsa but Olaf looked easier. There are things that could be better, for instance his eyes are not correct and the head in general could be better, but I was so impressed when I showed this to my girl (2years) AND she recognised it to Olaf!! So it is close enough. :)
I also filmed while I drew and coloured if you are interested. And please, if you liked this, will you let me know so I know if you like to see this kind of stuff in the future too. I still will be mainly focusing stamping and stuff but maybe once in a while I do similar to this too, if that is what you would like to see too.

This is just magical, Marika, and it was wonderful seeing you make this from start to finish.ReplyDelete
I agree with Karren Marika, this is ONE amazingly wonderful creation! I so admire your talent! You are blessed my friend!ReplyDelete
Awesome, Marika! I think I understand what you don't like about your drawing, but honestly these are just tiny details. Your drawing and coloring are brilliant and I don't think there's anybody in the world who would not recognize Olaf.ReplyDelete
This is truly amazing - seriously, you are focussing on little things as SonjaK says above. You tried it and it really does look like Olaf - I mean really recognisable. You have an amazing talent. I'll check out the video later, but I love watching you colour, so I can guarantee I'll love this too. XxReplyDelete
