...Surf's up, Dude...

An insanely late IF submission... Oooops! Oh well better late than never. The colours have worked really well on this one, I think. 

My holiday is slowly approaching, can't wait, but I don't think I will look ANYWHERE near that good in my swimsuit! *Shrugs shoulders* Oh well!

...First signs of Christmas 2011...

Can you believe we are well and truly on the down hill slope 'til Christmas?! I mean, it REALLY doesn't seem like 5 minutes ago that we were all shivering under -18 degrees last Winter!

Anyway, I received my first Christmas commission a couple of weeks ago and just to get everyone in that premature Christmassy mood I thought I'd share now.

If you like what you see, there's still time to commission your very own "Bethalina Creates" creation for Christmas 2011! Just drop me a line.

...Let's... EAT CAKE!!!

This is a gift for a close friend who could be moving away soon. Hopefully she will like it!
This friend and I share a few personality traits; one of which is a love of FOOD - cooking food, baking food and most of all, EATING FOOD! Especially CAKE!!!
I'm thinking this might be the start of a small collection of illustrations depicting things I love. What do you think? Also, do you think this would make a good birthday card?! Would love to hear your thoughts!

...Illustration Friday: Asleep...

My latest Illustration Friday submission for the theme "Asleep". Hope you like!
I actually did this illo about 5 years ago now (Oh, how time flies... and all that!) but it's an old favourite as it marked a turning point in my work. Prior to this, I had been struggling for a while with the transition between painting traditionally and digital work but, quite suddenly, I found a confidence working with the computer and my style of drawing just... clicked! So although it's not an up to date piece of work, I think it's nice because of the memories it holds and because it's pretty!

...Better late than never!...

This was meant to be last week's submission for Illustration Friday theme "Bicycle"; I was too late to upload it but I thought I'd share it with you anyway. Hope you like!

...Illustration Friday: Journey...

...L.O.V.E. Airlines - Come fly with me...
 This is my second Illustration Friday post; the theme is "Journey" and I thought of all those lucky peeps flying away for the Easter holidays *jealous* Oh well, I'm going to stay here in good old blighty, eat lots of chocolate and do DIY... Yey! 0_o
