Evil Empress of the Sea

Went out to lunch with the folks today.  It was a nice, sunshiney day :)  Other than that I took it easy for the rest of the day.  The last course of treatment has really drained me.
I "set up shoppe" on my couch.  This consisted of a nice cup of tea, my drawing pad, prismacolor markers and pencils.
I started work on my piece for this week's Macabre Monday challenge: Evil Empire.  We are to draw inspiration from one of our favorite Disney movies.
So, I went with Ursula from the Little Mermaid.  This is my version of the villain:
I found these awesome fashion templates at idrawfashion.  I used it as my centerpiece. (the fashion template only consists of her head without hair, torso and part of her legs).  I did the rest.
Pencil
Prismacolor markers
Charcoal
Glitter
I sketched a bit.  I napped a bit.  Then I sketched some more.  Then came a very long nap....you get the picture.  The finishing touches were some glitter here and there for some bling for the Forever Night Add some Bling Challenge.
Not too bad for a day's work.  What do you think?  Who's you're favorite Disney bad apple?
Thanks for stopping by!

Awesome artist alert!

'A Woman of Substance' by Octavio Ocampo
Original painting by Sandro Del Prete
I came across this artist's work by chance.  I was just browsing through YAHOO and he was featured!  This guy brings surrealism to the next level!
You can see more of his work here.  What do you think?
Have a great week everybody!

Cakewalk

Cakewalk (noun): an easy task
This is one of the words from my list of favorite words.  I like how it just rolls off the tongue and any word with "cake" in it is just awesome.
It's also the name of my up and coming blog: Cakewalk by KWOK
Life has NOT been cakewalk for me recently.  Everyone has there ups and downs.  So I asked myself, what really makes me happy.  I LOVE art.  But what could be better than to share with others so that they can create something of their own?
Hence, Cakewalk by KWOK was born; making an already enjoyable activity easier!!!
I'm going to be creating digistamps that you can download for FREE.  All I ask is that if you do use one of my creations, that you give me a shout out on your post and if you want, email me the direct link to your finished creation so I can see your awesome creations!
Cakewalk by KWOK will be debuting March 28th.  Mark your calendars!
Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for updates!
Live a colorful and creative life, namaste
Mary xoxo
