I have been working all day trying to draw this certain character for a project I am working on and it has been a long day! I think I finally made some progress but it was a struggle for sure! I then read a fb message on my 2 Cute Ink Facebook page and decided to do a cute sketch in adobe ideas to inspire others! A doggie came to my head and then I thought of this favorite dog bed my dogs use to have and then how they love to play with their toys!
So I am working on inking new embroidery/digital stamp designs, which means I need to "outline" them. Basically create that black outline right over my sketches. I also am working on my own way of coloring in adobe ideas where I can make the black outline match more of the color of the character. This way I can have a nice clean outline for digital stamps/digitized embroidery and then a nice colored image for my portfolio, threadless or cafe press/zazzle. I think by having the outline a "color" and not black gives it a better look for kids t-shirts etc. Here is peek of my work in progress!
The more 5's I get, the closer I get for a chance to get my artwork printed on a baby onesie! Vote Now! :)
I am currently looking to sponsor challenge blogs with my 2 Cute Ink Digital Stamps starting June 4th and would like to sponsor blogs each week! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what dates you have available!
The more"5's" I get the better chance I have of getting my design printed as a t-shirt!
Here is a sneak peek of my second threadless submission created in adobe ideas. I will post a link if it gets accepted for voting! I am having fun thinking of ideas!
Here is a sneak peek of my first Threadless submission as 2 Cute Ink! I started thinking this would be a fun way to get my creative juices flowing by thinking of "creative" drawings that I can enter at Threadless! I do like how this one turned out so now all I need to do is upload the image onto the computer and place on a t shirt template! :) Now I need to think of my next idea!
I decided to take a look at zazzle.com after I checked out cafe press.com and I am leaning more towards a zazzle shop!
Does anyone have a shop at either place?
Just wondering if anyone have any thought?
Instead of inking this morning I decided to work on my first design for my cafe press shop. I used one of my recent sketches a, little elephant and had some fun playing with color in adobe ideas. At first I had this little guy colored blue but I decided to color him grey instead. I really like him colored grey better! What do you think I should put this on in my cafe press shop? I know I would like to have a shirt made for me lol. I was thinking of adding more water and splashes, maybe even have the water write out something?
I started a new project yesterday in adobe ideas, where instead of inking in black first I went straight for color! So far so good, hoping this will be my first image to put on cafe press :)
