Disney Themed Illustration: Ariel from The Little Mermaid

Here is the next illustration in my Disney fanart series. I chose to draw Ariel from The Little Mermaid as she has such a strong recognisable visual aesthetic and it was very clear in my mind what I wanted to do with her.
The red hair was especially fun to draw, as it's been a while since I've draw brightly coloured hair. The little details that I added to this piece to tie it in closer The Little Mermaid include her Dinglehopper, a 'Part of Your World' tattoo, a seaweed lace top and starfish ring.
This original piece will be available on Etsy as soon as it gets sunny enough her to photograph anything! I'll update this post when it's for sale!

NEW ETSY PRODUCT: Bumblebee 'You're the Bee's Knees' Greetings Card

Wow! It seems like forever ago I drew the Bombus Terrestris (Bumblebee) Card Design, infact it was all the way back in February last year! But now I'm finally in a place where I am starting my illustration business and I can make the products that these illustrations are destined for.

After literally hours of trying to get my printer to cooperate and print on the card blanks I finally managed to hold some beautiful cards! The card has been printed on 250gsm card which has a lovely soft tactile quality and comes with a matching white envelope.

NEW ETSY PRODUCT: Framed Original Ladybird Illustration

I have just put a new listing up onto Etsy and it's the original illustration of the Ladybird I drew a few days ago. It's been float mounted on top of neutral brown paper so it looks like a piece from an entomology collection. It's been framed inside a white IKEA Ribba box frame with the PH neutral mount included.

I really love the finished look to this and when I draw some more insects I will most likely treat them in the same way! Imagine a whole wall of these!!

New Ladybird Illustration

Da-Ta! Here's my new ladybird illustration. I've had a project in the back of my mind for a while now and just needed to get it down on paper so I can empty out my 'ideas tank' a little. I'm going to be putting this ladybird design on Zazzle and trying to make coasters from them. Yay!
I have always had a passion for insects and there are so many of them I want to draw!!!

I'll be posting my progress shots of my coasters on my instagram: @natashahuttonart

Disney Themed Illustration : Belle from Beauty and the Beast

I've finished my first Disney themed illustration! I've always wanted to draw my favourite Disney characters in my style and I chose to start with Belle as she is my all time favourite Disney princess. As always this illustration is made with pastel and pencil, with white paint for highlights.

I have also spent the day photographing her so I can list her on my Etsy page. I will put a post up on all my social media (links on the right) when she is up as there will only be one original for sale!

Who is your favourite Disney character and who would you like to see me draw next?

EDIT (27/06/14) This piece is now available in my Etsy shop! BUY HERE

New Disney Themed Illustration

So I've started a project that I have always wanted to do, and that is drawing Disney characters in my own style. For this project I do not want to draw them like they are in their films, I want to give them a modern interpretation.

The first character I am going to draw is Belle, from the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast. She has always been my favourite character, probably because she is the most similar personality wise to myself out of all the Disney cast. So for now I'm going to leave you with a work in progress image, enjoy!
