Watercolor Pencil Sketch

Just a little something from my sketchbook.  After rummaging through my art supplies I decided to use my watercolor pencils today.  Working with them reminds me of those paint with water coloring books from when I was a kid.  Anyone else remember those?  Do they still make them?

"Buffoon" Color Comp

Veronica Kosowski Illustration

Woah, where has the time gone since my last post?  Sorry for not updating in so long, life's been getting in the way again.  I promise to get back to a more regular schedule of blogging from here on out!

I bet you're wondering where our friend the Buffoon wandered off to.  Here he is again, coming to life in color!  Lots of work still to do, but I'm enjoying every step of the way.

Miss Raven


Had a small piece of shellac-coated paper lying around my art supplies that I decided to cut down to ACEO size and doodle on.  This one's a Victorian girl I've named Miss Raven.  She's taking a walk with her pet through the gardens of her parent's mansion.  She's lonely, and the winter brambles only remind her of that, but she's hoping to find something (or someone) outdoors to lighten her mood.

Peasant Girl Sketch

This free-spirited peasant girl is constantly running into the hills above the village to find new adventures.  Her favorite chore is watching the sheep, since she gets to be outdoors and daydream.  She often leaves household chores unattended to the great displeasure of her mother, who can be heard calling her daughter's name in exasperation throughout the day.

Here's the buffoon again, this time with more of a cheeky grin.  Now it's on to color!
