I enjoyed drawing these portraits, i love how it makes me concentrate, as i'm always searching for that likeness to the person, sometimes it works other times it does not. I'm happy with all of these ATCs, some of them i'm happier with than others, i think the pencil drawings have worked really well.
This was also a PAT (Pick-A-Theme) swap, so each participant got to specify what sort of Zetti they wanted, this included Angels, Chubby Girls, Arty, Gothic, Mermaids, Geisha along with traditional and 'Artist's Choice'.
Some of these pages were easier to work on than others, some themes spoke to me, others needed greater thought. All of these pages came straight out of my head onto the page, i didn't do any research for this project, i just went with whatever ideas sprang from my brain.
All of these pages are handdrawn and painted, with the Geisha page including collaged papers. I used a mix of media including Prismacolour Markers, Watercolours, H20 paints, Koh-I-Noor Pens, faux gems and glossy glaze. I used the H20 paints on all the pages, so they all have a wonderful shimmer with doesn't come across in the pictures.
I like all of these pages, but i have a few favorites which include Chubby Girl Zetti, Artist's Choice Zetti, Mermaid Zetti, and Sunshine Zetti. Each of these pages have elements in them which i like, and intend to use in further Zetti projects.
