New Release : My First Artist Sticker – Frankenstein’s Bride

Frankenstein Bride – Vinyl Sticker From the Original watercolor Ink By ©Carolina Russo

New Release!
Is with happiness and excitement that I am introducing you today with something new and very special to me! My first collectible Artist Sticker “Frankenstein Bride” inspired by one of my drawings created for my past Inktober Collection 2017. I have just released the sticker few days ago on Instagram if you follow me there maybe you have seen it!

If you don’t know what Inktober is, let me tell you a little about it! Inktober is a wonderful worldwide art challenge happening every year during the month of October. It was created in 2009  by illustrator Jake Parker as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Participating artists create 31 ink drawings for 31 days sharing their daily work online on social media, groups and websites. There is a huge participation to this successful event, thousands of artist around the world join this challenge every year, it’s amazing!  I have participated creating my Inktober series since 2016.  Coming soon the new official prompts list for the 2019! I am so curious to see the list and what I will create this year! I hope you will follow my challenge in October or join in if love drawing! ❤

How all this happened?
Well this month I was thinking about the coming soon challenge brainstorming what I would like to do and experiment this year for my series. I thought that right now was the right time to  create a tangible product out of one of my favorite Inktober drawings.  From a long time I had the idea of a “Collectible Sticker” which is a fun and nice way to share my art. Stickers have been always very popular and still now more than ever.

In my re-creation I have changed a few things like the figure angle, colors and added a dash of gold as the challenge isn’t supposed to be a true copy but your own take on it being inspired by his painting and made it your own in your style! So I hope you all like it please leave me comments I love to know! ♥️♥️♥️

Hello friends,
first of all happy February! I hope you are all well embracing the new month!
if you followed my previous posts you know that during January I have participated to  “Draw This In Your Style” Challenge twice already and today I am posting my third painting created for the same Challenge  hosted on Instagram, this time by Artist Sam Crow #samscuriouschallenge  you can see more of her curious creatures on her art account on Instagram @samscuriouscreatures  for this challenge she selected two of her beautiful creatures I was soon inspired to recreate  in my style this one the little “Witch Omega” from Sam lovely original acrylic painting.

Omega – Watercolor Ink Painting ©CarolinaRussoAbout my painting I have re-created Sam’s  “Witch Omega” in my own signature style painted in watercolor in a limited palette. The painting is outlined with ink and I decided to have Omega standing out from an oval frame that instead to be black or dark color like the original painting is filled in gold ink, not easy to photograph gold I hope is ok on these photos.  I really like how Omega turned out I am very pleased with this painting and I hope you like her too!

Day #27 Little Devil – Climb

Day #27 – This day prompts were Little Devil and Climb. I don’t really like to paint devil’s images, but I made this one more thinking at a horned ethereal creature like a fantasy fairy or game character the color red obviously was supposed to be!

Day #28 Villain – Fall

Day #28 – This is my choice for the prompt Villain my painting is inspired by the Disney movie “Maleficent” and she is Angelina Jolie in her character!

Day# 29 and 30 Broom Ride – Spider

Days #29 and #30 – I had to catchup a day so I decided to combine two days using four promps in one drawing! Prompts are: Broom Ride, United, Spider, Found 🖤Today I wrote a short story for this painting!  “Gilda the mysterious witch in a night during Fall, was seen in the sky at night, she was fast riding her broom happily, after she got reunited with her found friend Spider!” ©CR 🖤♥️

Day #31 Tim Burton – Mask

Day# 31 – This is my “Emily” character from the movie “Corps Bride” honoring Tim Burton with this prompt. I haven’t changed Emily character too much, but she has my style touch! This is last painting of this amazing month of October!
