weekend sketch

Sketch by Anna Maria - May 2013 - That Rehcy Chic
Sketch I did this weekend; kinda practicing facial angles. Had this image in my head; didn't turn out exactly how I envisioned so I'll be sketching a few more similar pics until I get it right.
(Sketch done with Letraset markers and Faber-Castell pens)
The second pic I was just playing around with a watercolor brush on the computer.

That Rehcy Chic - "Guardian" by AM
Here's a piece I drew this past week. Probably slightly inspired by the season finale of Supernatural. Lord, I love that show! Sam and Dean are my friends..right?

This was made with graphite pencils, Faber-Castell pens, Letraset markers, and Prismacolor pencils. Then cleaned up digitally.
What's your favorite medium?

'Till next time, dolls.

mother 1889

"Mother 1889" by Anna Maria - That Rehcy Chic

 Here's a Victorian inspired, quick watercolor I did a few months ago, entitled "Mother 1889." The fashion of the Victorian era amazes and inspires me. The style is always seeping into my art and clothing designs. Here's a few steps in the process of creating "Mother 1889."

Next I inked the sketch and cleaned it up before painting it. 
Hope you enjoy the painting. I'll post another one soon.
