I’m finally back at the art after many months! It was nice having some time yesterday to just sit down and draw. These sort of sketches never take me that long anyway – I can have the mainframe sketched within 5 minutes, then I spend some time adding detail.
I love Aurora, but I’ve surprisingly never Continue reading ““Make It Pink, Blue, Green!” Pencil Sketch”
I haven’t had time to sketch in so long! I’m planning on starting a new series of portraits, and who better than the Disney princesses, who are, let’s be honest, my main daily inspiration? Continue reading ““Snow White” Coloured Pencil Portrait”
Hi everyone, apologies as I am posting this a little later than originally planned! Here’s my work-in-progress of an original piece I’m working on. The Gotham City Sirens (Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy) are, of course, my inspiration for this piece, and I’m

Happy Halloween! Well, okay, it’s the 28th, but because the 31st falls on a Monday this year, everyone will be celebrating this weekend instead! Need a unique idea for make-up? How about trying my personal favourite, that I like to call… “The Creeper“! Why that name, you ask? Well, as you can see from the photos, the big black-veined eyes and wide grimacing grin are just… well, creepy. “The Creeper” is brilliantly versatile and can accompany many a costume, whether you’re a zombie, witch, banshee, ghost or anything inbetween. It’s also pretty simple to apply, when you know how! So without further ado, here’s how to get the look… Continue reading “Beauty | Halloween Special | “The Creeper” Make-Up Tutorial”
Having perfectly manicured nails is an essential part of every lady’s life, but for us Disney fans, we like ours to be a touch more magical – by adding Minnie ears! This is one of my favourite designs to create; it’s both fun and Continue reading “Beauty | Minnie Manicure Nail Art Tutorial”
With an upcoming Disneyland Paris trip in 6 days and Tim Burton’s Alice Through The Looking Glass being released this month, what better idea than to create an Alice In Wonderland themed design for a tutorial! I decided to make the Continue reading “Beauty | Alice In Wonderland Nail Art Tutorial”
I’m so excited to finally see Disney’s live action production of The Jungle Book, I decided to create a Shere Khan inspired nail art tutorial in its honour!
This is a pretty simple guide to creating the tiger’s eye (preferably on your thumb for the biggest work space). To demonstrate how just how simple, I’ve used Continue reading “Beauty | The Jungle Book Shere Khan Nail Art Tutorial”
I’ll admit I actually haven’t drawn in a while. A couple of years ago, I set myself a challenge to sketch a 3-5min Disney-themed doodle a day which I’d then post on my social media accounts. This got quite popular, and I’d get requests from Continue reading “Art | Lavender’s Blue, Dilly-Dilly, Lavender’s Green | Cinderella Coloured Pencil Portrait”
