Hand Studies Feb. 2015 by MonicaOrange
Hand Studies Feb. 2015
I've been meaning to practice my hand drawing/painting skills, so I finally did that today. I've always struggled with hands, and lately I've been really lazy about fixing that problem until now. I plan on doing more at different angles/ styles etc. Anyways, constructive criticism is appreciated.

Black Opal Mermaid
I think I might do a series of these. I also like this more than the first one. Have I mentioned that I loves mermaids?

Edit: I added a few more details because I posted this just a little too soon. :P
Paint the Fence by MonicaOrange
Paint the Fence
Just something a little bit different. I've really been into 40's and 50's fashion lately, which is what I drew inspiration from for this.
Blue Mood by MonicaOrange
Blue Mood
The color blue is often associated with sad and melancholy moods and while sometimes I agree with this association, I wanted to create something with an over all blue color scheme, but I didn't want to draw something sad. To me one of the times I'm most content is when the sky is a bluish grey color and raining. When its also like this I like to cuddle up and read. Something that makes me happy. So, that is what I was thinking when I sketched this.
Hey everybody, I have an exciting announcement. I am moving to Florida. For those of you who don't know, I currently reside in Michigan, but because I just got a new job, I am needed elsewhere. Where is this new job you may ask? It's at Disney World!!! Yup, thats right, I'm finally taking a step in the right direction as far as my career goes and going to the one place I have always wanted to work. Now, I will be extremely honest, this position I have been given isn't necessarily the most glamorous or exciting job. In fact I will working in the costuming department doing mostly entry level work, but here is why I'm making this huge move for a seemingly minor job. Disney loves to hire from within, plus I am in need of some change in my life. I would really like to work my way up into a higher position where I can utilize my Illustration and design skills. I know it will be a lot of work, but I feel that this is the right thing for me right now. Also, I am a deeply spiritual person, and due to a series of circumstances, I feel that this position is really a Godsend. I am so thankful and excited I can hardly contain my joy. I want to thank my (currently) very few Watchers for following me, and I would also like to let you know, that It may be a while till I submit much artwork. Not that I am the most consistent when it comes to submitting art anyways, but I have to move in less than two weeks, plus It's going to be a huge, and possibly stressful adjustment. If you pray, I would appreciate any prayers, and If you don't pray, I would appreciate any positive thoughts you feel like giving :). Finally, I just wanted to say that I am going to do my best and try my hardest. I feel that this is part of God's plan for me and even thought I don't know what the future holds, I'm excited and willing to learn from this experience. 

I'll update you as soon as I can, and thank you to all of you guys!!
