Sorry I haven’t been posting much. I am really full of cold. I shouldn’t complain because I haven’t been ill in a long time so I guess it is my turn, but I’m going to complain anyway.  No breathing through nose + no sleep + sinus headaches + really itchy insect bites (unrelated but still annoying) + sore throat + fever + a mighty chesty cough * for the last 5 days now = a very grumpy natalie and a not very attractive look.

These sketches are of sheffield-based burlesque performer Raven Noir. She did an awesome act with a bed of nails(!) and she’s an incredible dancer. 

These were taken after her performance (we drew her before and after as part of drsketchybristol's latest event).

Before she was wearing an even more feathery outfit with loads of beading and a beautiful corset, but I found it so difficult to draw it in the time!

A comic about a mystery/my life. It is really big and you won’t be able to read the text or see the details without clicking so please take the time to click and read. It would mean a lot to me! This is the first time I’ve done a page like this and I’d love some feedback/criticism. My ask box is always open :)Thank you!

More sketches of miss-angelique-dominique from drsketchybristol's night at the movies event on Sunday afternoon.

I should be brave and use more ink. I am way too timid and indecisive with the pencil :/

I had a blast drawing ivana van der fluff (a bristol-based burlesque performer) at drsketchybristol yesterday afternoon. She had really lovely swooshy hair, and it was really fun to draw her hands in those gloves, too.

Today I went to drsketchybristol again. And again, it was great, can’t wait for the next one! Really hope they start up the night classes they’ve been hinting about! 
I drew this one from memory once I got home of miss-angelique-dominique - she was dressed as a unicorn and covered in balloons full of glitter! A gorgeous lady and very fun to draw - wish I’d taken some colours with me!
Loads of sketches to upload once I get to my scanner. The two other performers were amazing, too!

Super quick + unflattering doodle of the person sat opposite me.

I just cut my hair. Missing the length, although it’s still long enough for most of these things.

I went out for an all you can eat, and now I feel like this balloon lady. I wish I could pop and be over with it, jeez.

Just wanted to say how nice it is to break the 100 follower boundary (which happened some time yesterday). I know it’s probably not a lot for most people, but it’s really encouraging, so thank you for having me on your dash!

I made another animation thing! First one in a while.This is the first time I’ve made a turnaround. There are a fair few things wrong with it. Her face isn’t quite right in profile (smile too wide, nose too long), she doesn’t look as chubby as she should in 3/4 view, her hair is too “gappy” at the back viewed from the front, there’s something up with the shoulders… also there’s a few messy pixels hanging around.Despite all that though, I’m relatively happy!

My original natural is beautiful wood-nymph lady has been getting a bit of love recently, so I decided to try and draw her again.It was really hard to draw her consistently. I hope I didn’t do too badly. I redrew the face a lot of times.
