What Time is it....


It's a bit of a trend at the moment isn't it. Toys and games are everywhere. My brother put me onto this brilliant cartoon late last year and I'm currently going through a re-watch. I have also caught the drawing bug again and thought I'd try out drawing Adventure Time style. In my search for reference material and found some truly stunning fan art as well as images by the artists that create Adventure Time. Here are some of my faves.

By Suihara
 Adventure Time makes a lot of references to classic anime so it's only natural that people would love drawing the characters in classic anime style.

By Matthew Ethan
 This realist illustration style is a fascinating take on the completely unrealist subject matter.

Picture of the Week

I haven't done a Picture of the Week post since January 2012. Shocking I know, especially since it's the easiest post to do, as such I thought I better make this one a twofer.

The Magic Cup by Arthur Rackham, 1908

From the Secret Garden by Charles Robinson, 1911

What interests me here, and the reason I put these two images together, are the similarities in imagery and composition despite the different subject matter and artists. The vegetation in the back ground, young girl's looking down into a body of water, even the goblins and cup in Rackham's piece remind me of the cherub and fish fountain in Robinson's. 

I found both these pictures on one of my favourite boards on Pinterest, Illustration Station by Fiona Lusby.

Sheilah Beckett

I featured some Sheilah Beckett pieces in my Twelve Dancing Princesses post the other week and was so taken with her style I had to share some more with you. I was quite pleasantly surprised when searching for more artwork that I had also featured her way back when in 2011 in my Snow White and Rose Red post.
