Sketchbook Sunday Sabrina Fan Art!

Hi friends! Today I am drawing a mixed media portrait of Sabrina Spellman (aka Sabrina Morningstar) from the Netflix show The Chilling Tales of Sabrina. This character is originally from the Archie comics and I absolutely love the new show!

Honestly, I’m not really happy with how this turned out but that’s life, sometimes you love your work and other times it’s meh. You always learn something though and often it is in the work we are not happy with that we learn the most. I hope you enjoy the time-lapse.

I think the best way to spend winter is by staying inside and painting! Maybe I’ll see you in one of my classes! I just realized that it’s Groundhogs Day and I think he predicts an early spring, I hope so but until them you can find me inside painting. How about you? Happy crafting!

Fan Art: Drawing June from The Handmaids Tale {Sketchbook Sunday}

Hi friends! Last night I finished watching season 3 of The Handmaids Tale. This Hulu series was based on a book by Margaret Atwood and I can’t wait to read the sequel The Testaments.

I loved the acting by Elizabeth Moss so much that I decided to draw her portrait for sketchbook Sunday. You can see the time lapse below. A real-time version of this tutorial will be available in Critique Club in a couple of days.
