WIP Angel Fairy Art Original Painting Work in Progress + August Sketches, Sketch 1, Totoro...



In this original acrylic work in progress WIP big eye maiden painting I'm at around the same place as the other one that I'm working on.  I've painted her eyes and I've done a few layers on her face.  I still have more layers to go with more shading before I move on to her eyebrows, eyelashes, and lips; but I'm liking the direction she is going in.  This angel fairy is a little 4"x4" acrylic painting. 


This is a work in progress, but I also usually post at least one finished piece on Tuesdays if you'd like to come to visit!  You also may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.



Here is a sketch of Totoro.  It's based on an tiny 2" plush that I have that sits on the bookshelf.  I'm a huge Miyazaki fan and I especially love the anime My Neighbor Totoro.  I'm doubt I'll paint him, but I did enjoy sketching him.


I've decided to try and do a sketch a day in August.  This is day 1.   

This is a rough sketch.
