WIP Work in Progress Baby Yoda Grogu Inspired Original Painting...

 


In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting inspired by baby Yoda Grogu, I have completed the underpainting and I feel the background is finished as well.  I've started to add color to his ears, but I think one needs a more orange feeling and I'm debating on his hues of green for his face.  I meant to get him done for the Mandalorian, but now it's more of a May the Fourth backburner project...  This is where I am with him right now.  



This is a work in progress, but I also post finished pieces here as well if you'd like to come to visit!  Most of my art is also available on my website at lisabellarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme is Chinese New Year Zodiac animals (with the intention to add my muskox and some additional Zodiac animals on the first Tuesday of February) art plus some more; you may see them here.

Year of the Muskox Chinese New Year Musk Ox WIP Work in Progress Rough Sketch / Art Sketch Daily #dailysketch #draweveryday...

 



Every year, I try to paint the Zodiac animal of the year for Chinese New Year...  February 12th will be the start of year of the ox.  Right now I've started with a rough sketch of a muskox.  It is a work in progress at this point. I love to paint fluffy fur and this musk ox has plenty of that!  I am looking forward to taking this further.


Most of my art is also available on my website at lisabellarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme is a selection of some of my Chinese New inspired animal art (I hope to finish this piece by next month and share some additional Zodiac animals on the 1st Tuesday of February) and others; you may see them here.

WIP Work in Progress Sugar Skull with Monarch Butterfly for DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS: JOURNEY OF THE BUTTERFLIES Day of the Dead Show at the Ontario Museum of Art

 



In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting of a sugar skull with a monarch butterfly.  I have finished the background and the skull.  I have yet to complete the butterfly, although I have started.  The panel that I'm painting on is 5"x7" and my intention was for it to be a study for the larger piece I did for the show.  However, I didn't quite make it to all of the skull details on the larger piece, I will probably add them in at a later time.  



This is a work in progress, but I also post finished pieces here as well if you'd like to come to visit!  Most of my art is also available on my website at lisabellarusso.com; however, on the first Tuesday of the month, I like to put some art prints and LE ACEO prints on ebay at a lower promotional rate for the duration of the auctions...  This month, my theme is Halloween and Dia de los Muertos/Day of the Dead art plus some more; you may see them here.

Big Eye Eyed Fantasy Scarecrow Halloween WIP Work in Progress Toned Drawing / Art Sketch Daily #dailysketch #draweveryday...

 



This is a project I have on the drawing board, in a manner of speaking.  This big eyed scarecrow might not be very scary...  Right now I'm working on a toned drawing of her.  It is a work in progress at this point.  I am still debating on how to handle her hair and I've yet to lay in any highlights...  I've also transferred her to a panel and I'm looking forward to putting some paint down on her in the not too distant future.

I was inspired by Camilla d'Errico's #Drawloween prompt list last year; although I didn't get very far, I'm hoping to get farther this year with this piece...
