ALL ARTWORK MADE by NATHALIE DE VALLIÈRE

messing around with art snacks.
Koh-i-noor Tri-tone colored pencils, Winsor&Newton Vine charcoal, Artisto 3Fit mechanical pencil
I really like the mechanical pencil - finally one where the eraser doesn’t have a silly cap that you always need to push down and consequently push out the lead all the time. 
The colored pencil is kind of cool. I don’t really like the way it rubs against the paper but I like the color.
Gah - I’ve never liked coal. It gets your hands dirty and feels horrid when dragged across the paper (the sound is also pleasant - comparable to dragging your nails across a blackboard). But but but I’m trying to get into it. A little.

supposed to design a wine label - too many choices! too many possible variations!

one of the artists I follow on tumblr is mini-q.tumblr.com

absolutely magnificent work!

I blatantly copied his style and ideas to create an avatar for my older sibling for fun. 

a little animation I did, inspired by my history as a synchronized swimmer and a love for origami.

for a while now I’ve been thinking about adding a soundtrack - any suggestions?

Another attempt at Ava’s Demon Fanart. I decided to draw the characters in my own style this time. I think I’ll send this one in as an entry to the valentine’s day contest.

Countdown

Hello Internet!

I’ll be turning twenty years old tomorrow (at precisely 13.08) and right now I’m sitting at home with a vicious cold. Feel like asking me a question and getting my mind off my misery?

messing around with some fanart for Ava’s Demon (if you haven’t heard about the web comic yet, I command you to follow the link)

Update: I have no patience right now for digital coloring - will try again later.
