2012 Art meme by NicoleCadet 2012 Art meme by NicoleCadet
2012 was again a quiet year. I spent a lot of time working on commissioned paintings so the months where there are sketchfest images, I was often in the middle of multiple commissioned pieces. All of these pieces are in my gallery, though some are in my scrapbook.

January A sketch from sketchfest of a dragon
FebruaryArmana: Urban Angel. I'd wanted to paint an angel that didn't follow the popular blonde male with white wings stereotype.
March The client didn't go with this sketch, however I liked this thumbnail. I still haven't released this painting yet.
April Elthas: A mercenary warrior
May Foxglove - a rogue/ ranger half elf from the same group of portraits as Elthas
June Star Empress sketch from sketchfest. First time in a long time sketching with pastels
July Swords Call cover: I loved this painting, although it was certainly challenging. The tree and I had a love-hate relationship :)
AugustA sketch showing my love for Pre-Raphaelite paintings
September Another commissioned painting, first time painting a lute. Lots of things that had to fit into the painting :)
October A quick tutorial on painting scars, don't think it worked out too well.
NovemberAnother sketchfest piece. I love drawing darker, slightly sexy characters - they're fun. This is why I often draw these kinds of characters during sketchfest
DecemberCommissioned ACEO painting. First time properly painting 'black' skin in watercolours. I've done a lovely dark skinned woman digitally before, but watercolours provide a new challenge

:) It's ok, by the end of it I think the tree made me extremely happy :)

That will be cool to see!
