Stuck Inside All Day? Let's Draw! (Also, Puppies in Sweaters)

Hey everyone!

How cold is it where you live? Here, it's been below zero (and really, really below zero with windchill)  for far too many days in a row. According the weather now, at this moment, it apparently feels like 2 degrees outside at the moment. We made it above zero! Finally!

(If you live somewhere warm, know that I am very jealous of you right now. Let's trade places, yeah?)

So, since it's been so cold out, I've been literally sitting in my bed hiding under the covers for most of this week, usually with a hot mug of latte in my hands. Not being very productive. Both of my puppies have sweaters now, since Meeko seemed so jealous about Zoey's sweater, and I didn't want him to be freezing while he went outside to do business.

I was worried Meeko would hate the sweater, but he seems very content and happy with it on. So yay! I'm almost sad to see the cold weather go, since my puppies are just so incredibly cute in their winter sweaters.

And maybe you noticed, while looking at these pictures, all those blankets on my bed? Yeah, I've been hiding under a lot of blankets the last few days. Eight in total, actually. Three comforters and five sheets. And my toes still somehow end up a bit cold! I don't understand it.

Anyway, being in bed most of this week, besides trying to combat a cold my body seems intent on getting, I've been either surfing the internet or drawing! I haven't drawn in quite sometime, but I figured, being stuck inside, the time was perfect to do so again. I ended up accepting drawing requests from 8 of my friends on Facebook, to try and get me back to focusing more on my art again, since I do enjoy drawing. I was all set and ready to draw those today, and then woke up with a terrible migraine. Ugh.

So I might have to wait until tomorrow to start on those.

But I did manage to get one picture drawn yesterday, though it was just a quick sketch/coloring to get me warmed up for the other pictures, and to practice a little so I could try to ensure the picture I drew for my friends wouldn't suck. And here it is:

She's a character from a story-type thing I'm working on. Her name is Lotus, and she's part angel (thus why she's wielding a large glowy hammer-o-doom). Another picture of her I've drawn recently(ish):

Other pictures I've recently drawn:

( Fan art of Link from Zelda. Does it look like him??! )

(This one gave me a lot of difficulty, since I suck when it comes to hands! I had to look off of a reference.. )

(And here's my original sketch of the first picture I showed you, so you can see what it looked like before I played with it in Photoshop!)

So, what do you think? I really want to improve this year, so I think I'll try to draw at least a couple pictures once per month. (Another thing to add to my monthly goal blog posts, I suppose!)

If you want to check out my artwork, my DeviantArt is located right here: Clicky Click!

I don't have much uploaded onto it at the moment, but more will be coming soon!

Do you draw? If so, I'd love to see your artwork!


  1. Lovely drawings! Thank you for stopping by!

    Come back soon to visit me on The Notebook of a Fashion Lover

    Evi xoxo

  2. Your drawings are awesome! I feel so bad for you guys living in northern america with the cold freeze. Hope it goes away soon so you guys can continue living your normal life :)

    1. Thanks so much! And yeah, it's been rough, but today wasn't so bad. But then, we're so lucky, we got freezing rain now that it's warmer, so the roads are terrible. Ugh.

  3. Well, I can't say I'm writing from a place that's much warmer than there you are, but I can say it's a *bit* warmer (30s to 40s). Anyway, your dogs and their sweaters are adorable! I especially love the sweater with the skulls and cross-bones on it :) Great job with the art, too!

    1. Thank you! And yeah, the sweater with crossbones isn't really my style, but it looks so cute on my puppy that I love it anyway. c:
