+Friend or Foe?+

Imagine disturbing this beautiful creature in a woodland glade one day - - - is it friendly...? Or was this a creature you weren't supposed to see?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I've been slowly picking away at this since sometime last year as I haven't always had time to work on it. It got to the point where I had to step away from it (even though I can see errors) & I managed to get it finished up in time to be a print for my first convention of the year a couple of weeks back :phew:

:bug: Markers, ink, chalk pastel, pencil crayons & acrylic + some tidy up for print in Photoshop
A3 poster prints are available in my Etsy shop

Starsign Chibis Poster
I finally got around to making a poster collecting all my Starsign chibi designs together (they were only available as postcard size prints before) I got these printed in time for the convention I was at the other weekend & I'm really pleased with how they came out!

x WIN x
If you're interested, you can actually win one of these A3 sized poster prints on my facebook page - the giveaway ends Thurs 20th April at 12pm GMT (sorry for the short notice!) To enter just like my art page + comment on the giveaway post : )

:bug: Chibis: markers + pencil crayons, BG: photoshop

Oh right, how did the Sci-fi convention in Scarborough turn out?
tea-bug Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2017
It was very good this year! A bit slower on the Sunday but very busy on the Saturday, so I did well :)
The weather was also very nice for Scarborough at this time of year!
Thanks for asking!

Aw wonderful to hear! I've never been to Scarborough before but I wouldn't mind going there someday. :)

You're very welcome!~

It's very seasonal (it's my hometown although I escaped(!) )
This time of year & September can be nice, outside of the school holidays ;)
