Creative Tuesdays - CANDY



I've been fairly busy this past week in the studio, focused on a few custom orders for my clients.  Between working at the school during the morning hours and spending my afternoons creating, I've been just as busy as if I was taking classes

Anyway, I've taken a small break from the custom orders to put my "candy" idea to paper for this round of Creative Tuesdays.  I really liked this challenge and actually incorporated my Facebook friend's favorite candy into this particular piece.  It was fun for all of us! What candy do YOU spot in the illustration above? Tee hee  :)

I've already added some other shading and edits since this photo, so I'll be sure to post an updated and final photo when it's ready.  Happy CT!

  15. I love the macaroons and the sugar lollipop sticks. Fun! this totally makes me think of those kind of candy shops one can go to in Old West towns and such. How fun. I feel like I am back in the Little House on the Prairie with the Olsteads! Love it! thank you for cheering Ct along and playing along too.
