I usually start and finish a piece before starting on another project. I consider myself a 'finisher' when it comes to projects. It's not unusual for me to start and complete something without taking a break. When something is flowing well, I forget to eat meals or take a break until it's done. :D Lately though, I have so many little projects/plans for each new image that I come up with, it's not always convenient to finish a colored version after a line art is inked and processed as a digital stamp. Right now, I have one sketch of a sprite, one piece half inked for a new series, one image finished as a digi (but waiting for a release later), and one sprite inked and ready for color (but will have to wait for release next month). That's a lot of pieces floating about my work space!
Well, I finished "Bleeding Heart Sprite" today. It's been so hot, I spent a little too much time downstairs where it's cooler to be truly productive, but it's always a good day when I can post a new image and release a digi version of it at both of my shops. :D
I really like the way this one's design came out. I'm a big fan of the pouffy pants many of these Sprite babies wear, but I'm particularly fond of her 'braid' that she's fiddling with. I used to have a bleeding heart plant at my house, but there was a period of time when I neglected some parts of the yarden (yard + garden = yarden). After a few years, the poor plant never came back. I've been taking much better care of the yarden this season with a renewed commitment. Maybe I'll get another one of these lovelies and give it a place in my garden again. ^_^
The digi version of this image is now listed at both of my shops - Etsy here and AW digi shop here. It's at the usual size of 1500 x 2100 pixels at 300 dpi JPG.
The next sprite is a request by one of my DT ladies. It's a truly unique 'flower'. And it will have a different look from my usual Sprite babies. :D Hopefully, I'll be productive tomorrow. *fingers crossed*
