Puddling jumping is super-fun when you're wearing your favorite orange and yellow polka dot rain boots!
My warm-up sketch this morning was inspired by a new song from Elevation Worship called "There is a Cloud" (listen to the "There is a Cloud" CD on Spotify).
Puddle Jump 1 - Permission to Play!
Play with no pressure. Try doodling without an eraser. Use a ballpoint pen and add some highlighter color. Use what you have at hand, where ever you are. The brushes I used in "Puddle Jump" are from the recent update to Kyle T. Websters MegaPack (find his brushes here: www.kyletwebster.com). It was fun to experiment with the different textures. (Note to self: Organize my favorite brushes!)
Puddle Jump 2 - Invent a Character
Invent a new...something...someone...hero perhaps? Place your character in a setting that gives you peace. I was inspired by the music I heard, but maybe you would like to be on the beach, in a cave exploring, or taking a hot air balloon ride.
I seem to draw this puddle jumping cutie alot and she didn't have a name yet. With the help of my awesome momma, meet Maddie Kate! You'll be seeing more of her in the coming months!
Have a creative and blessed day!
