Get ready lovelies! The next girl in my Color Wheel rainbow hits my Custom Print Shop on September 19th at 9AM PST!! Say hello to my orange girl: Donna Aurantiaco.
Starting at 9AM PST on Saturday, September 19th you’ll be able to get your hands on one of my Limited Edition 16×20″ Hand Embellished Fine Art print (while supplies last!). She is embellished with 5 different iridescent paints, signed and numbered (in an edition of 50) and printed on Entrada paper – the Rolls Royce of fine art papers!
She will also be released as an open edition print. So if the fine art, hand embellished pieces are out of your price range – don’t fret! She will be available to you in other unsigned and unembellished sizes!
Mark your calendars lovelies! Because pandemic or no – I’m still gonna bring you loads of goodies on my Etsy Shop for SDCC 2020’s Comic Con @ Home starting 9AM PST July 21st until 5PM PST July 26th!
I’m sure you’ve all heard by now that SDCC has been officially cancelled (and if you hadn’t then I’m SO SO sorry I had to be the bearer of such bad news!). But fret not! I – like many of my fellow artist – am bringing my SDCC merchandise to you online!
I’ve got SO many great goodies headed your way on my Etsy Shop including daily original drawings giveaways; online exclusive fan badges; new mystery bundles; new one-of-a-kind totes, new original art, custom toys, kimonos, a brand new timed release print and so much more!
I’ll have 20% off my Custom Print Shop so make sure to take advantage of that when you head over there for my new Timed Release print “Senshi Hive”! She will be a 16”x20” Lasal signed and numbered print limited edition – numbered to the amount sold during the release. Whether that’s 50 or 500 – who knows?!
Because she’s a print she will ONLY be available on my Custom Print Shop – but don’t fret! Because supplies won’t run out! You just need to purchase her during the release: from Thursday 9am PST July 21st to Sunday 5pm PST July 26th. After the release ends she will be printed to the number that was sold, signed and numbered and then she’ll be gone forever! So don’t miss out on her.
All my other convention goodies will be waiting for you on The Camilla Store on Etsy! There will be brand new original sketches available for purchase. Loads of Sailor Moon art and the sailor scouts as fuzzbutts! And other pop culture art as well.
All the sketches are either 5”x7” or 8×10” and will come framed in ornate white frames. There’s only one of each drawing though! So don’t miss out!
I’ll have a handful of T-shirts available with all new images. They are all handmade in Poland, preshrunk and are really great quality!
There will be limited numbers and sizes. So if it says it’s sold out – then we’ve definitely sold out (unfortunately we won’t have any more hiding in “the back”). Sorry!! So don’t wait to buy the one you want or else you might miss out! Check out a sample fit of an old design below:
Hello lovelies. Just wanted to update my original post about the masks. Due to your OVERWHELMING support in this project – over 1, 400 masks were sold!! Meaning I’ll be donating over 350 masks to healthcare workers and other people in need. So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
However – because of this overwhelming response we are experiencing a delay with our manufacturer. It was a massive order and – as I’m sure you all can understand – they are having staffing issues and that has slowed their production time. So for those who ordered a mask, or masks, we hope to have them all shipped out no later than May 16th.
I’m so sorry for the delay! The manufacturers are working as fast as they can.
I know things are scary right now. And it’s looking like this is becoming the new normal for the next while. So I wanted to create a product that will help during this trying time.
Head to The Camilla Store to pre-order your face mask today! There are 4 designs to choose from.
They are all available in small, medium and large. How to find your size: Measure along the curvature of your face from the bridge of your nose to just under your chin. SMALL: 4.3″ Height – 4.3″ elastic at each end, looped; MEDIUM: 4.9″ Height – 4.7″ elastic at each end, looped; LARGE: 5.5″ Height – 5.1″ elastic at each end, looped.
And because I want to help to do my part: I will donate 1 in every 4 masks purchased to places like long-term care facilities, hospitals, and old folks homes. I want these to get into the hands of those who need them. The donations will be spread out through various cities.
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy! And hopefully SANE! I’m going a bit store crazy… And I know it always helps me to shake up my creativity. So I thought it’d be fun to share one of the lessons from my Pop Manga Drawing book – FREE! Right here! So get scrolling and start drawing!
If you have the book already – start following along on page 62! If you enjoy drawing and like the lesson below, you can get you own copy of the book here on my Etsy Store.
STEP 1: For this piece, you’re going to draw a full circle (even though half of the face will be covered up by hair) using a hard lead like an HB or by gently drawing so that you don’t press too hard. It’s important to have the proper shape and structure of all objects no matter if you see them or not!
STEP 2: Use light lines to add details to your character. Don’t press too hard, okay? The trick here is to establish the hair first and then fit in the sun buddies after. So, don’t be afraid to draw over your initial circle shapes.
STEP 3: Refine the elements of your drawing either by switching to a softer 3B lead or by adding a little bit more pressure to your current pencil. You want to focus on the ebb and flow of the hair. Using confident strokes, try to maintain a continuous line, breaking only when you get to a juncture. I start at the bangs and then move down to the rest of the hair.
STEP 4: Erase your underwriting with a soft eraser. It’s okay to erase some of the outlines you’ve established. Bows your Cuba ce yo correct and redraw parts!
STEP 5: Work on one object at a time. I chose to focus on the girls eyes as well as her bear ears. Use quick little strokes to simulate the fur. Shade in her eyes moving from top to middle. Drawing the eyes and ears will require several layers of shading and texture.
STEP 6: Refine the suns. I chose to draw the suns before the hair because the suns overlap the hair. As a result, it’s best to establish them first. Use a softer 4B lead to achieve darker lines and gently go over your outline. Thicken the lines that connect at the main subject to provide more definition. Give each sun a little face to add some personality.
STEP 7: Now, jump into the hair! For this stage of the drawing, turn your paper around as you draw to get nice, fluid lines. Start with light, subtle lines to get a feeling for the hair. Then, as you get confident, firm up you pressure and draw in more stands of hair. For stylistic purposes, I like to add more hair at the edges and leave less of it in the middle.
STEP 8: Using a softer 4B lead, finish up the eyes, the ears, and the hair. Remember; it’s totally okay to draw over the lines placed earlier. Doing so just adds more texture and depth. For the eyes, make sure to darken the tips of the irises so that she doesn’t have a startled look. Slowly build up shadows. Start with light pressure, and then turn your paper and draw over that area again with former pressure. Repeat this process several times until you get a nice shadow layer.
FINISHING UP: Go over your drawing and add in darker edges and lines. Clean up any leftover underdrawing and add little wisps of hair here and there.
I hope you had fun! Make sure you share you work when you’re done on any social platform. Be sure to tag me so that I can see your masterpieces!
