Arts 'n' Crafts | Blogger Costume Portraits

"An artist cannot speak about his art any more than a plant can discuss horticulture."
Jean Cocteau

It's been a while since I've done an Arts 'n' Crafts post and after getting the digital doodling bug this week I thought why not doodle some of my favourite bloggers for a blog post! I also figured since Halloween is coming up that I would doodle them dressed in costumes. And thus the idea for blogger costume portraits was born. I had hoped to get more done but apparently I'm super slow and only ended up getting three drawn. However, there are some other bloggers I would have liked to have doodled so perhaps I'll do more in the future. 

I haven't drawn much recently, especially digital and especially portraits, so these are far from perfect masterpieces. I always get nervous drawing people I know in case I make them look bad but as they say, practice makes perfect. I hope you guys don't mind being my muses. 

First we have the beautiful Daisy of Prompts By Dee as none other than Harry Potter. This is the first one I did and I have to say I think it's my favourite. 

This one is a little odd, I know. It's of wonderful Natasha from Through Tasha's Camera. I love Tasha's photography of nature and I wanted a costume that incorporated that. I don't know why but I just felt like a flower suited her. She usually wears glasses but I suck at drawing glasses (as seen in the first picture) so lets pretend she has contacts. I also kind of messed up her eyes. Oh well. 

Lastly we have the lovely Claire from Fine and Dandy dressed as Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time. While I'm quite happy with this one I feel like there's just something off that makes it not quite look like her. I can't put my finger on what it is. 

I really enjoyed drawing these and I'm hoping the digital doodling bug will continue and I'll get more practice in and hopefully improve. However, I'm the worst for going through phases so that's probably unlikely. Still, one can dream. Anyway, please do check out these wonderful bloggers.
