May the Fourth (4th) be With You! Big Eye Toned Drawing of Baby Yoda...


I hope you have a wonderful Star Wars Day from me and from baby Yoda at lisabellarusso.com!  May the Fourth (4th) be with You...


Usually I do a toned drawing as a precursor to doing a painting, but this time I have not yet decided if I'll take this any further.  We recently subscribed to Disney+ streaming and I was able to watch The Mandalorian.  Of course I was smitten with baby Yoda, not that he's technically actually baby Yoda, but smitten I was...

I've mentioned wanting do some more toned drawings this year and add them to the studies section of my website, but I haven't had much follow through yet.  Hopefully this little 5"x7" drawing on 9"x12" toned paper will be there in the not too distant future depending on if I decide to go further and do a painting of him or not.  If I do decide to paint him, I'll wait until the painting is also complete and add them to the website at the same time.

Rough Sketch of a Big Eye Bunny Girl Maiden/ Art Sketches Daily #dailysketch #draweveryday...




Here is my big eye bunny girl maiden rough sketch.  She is actually a merging of two sketches in photoshop.  I did her face first then sketched some ears.  I played with their size and angles a bit to get them just so.  I do continue to sketch daily, I find a bit of art routine is very important to my day.  I'm hoping to do a drawing of this one as well as a painting.  Although it seems unlikely I will complete her for Easter, I love bunnies any time of the year!


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 mermaid art plus some more; you may see them here.

WIP Mermaid with a Seashell Crown Art Original Painting Work in Progress...



I finished the toned drawing study I shared a while back and have begun the painting of this mermaid with a seashell crown.  I'll share the finished version of the drawing when I am also finished with this piece.  In this original wip work in progress acrylic painting I've been working on the background, the lineart for her face and details are difficult to see, but they have been transferred over.  I have a smidge more to do on the background and then I'll begin with the coral part of her crown.  It isn't blocked in as I plan on doing it with drips over the dark background...

This big eyed beauty is on a 16"x20" oval canvas.


This is a work in progress, but I also post finished pieces here as well if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at lisabellarusso.com if you'd like.
