Faustino




Faustino certainly wasn't a native Venetian but he loved the city and its people. As an extravagant bird he spent most of the year trying to keep a low profile, that was until carnival season came around. Once a year he dressed up in his opulent costume and donned his ornate mask before venturing into the streets of Venice at dusk to celebrate and dance with all the people he had waited all year to walk among...

Life Drawing


My oldest friend is not only a wonderful person but also an incredibly talented (and flexible!) athlete. After making a weird artist comment that some of her photos would be great life drawing reference, she graciously sent me some top notch reference!

We Wants the Redhead!


I spend most of my weekends (well... all week really) wishing I was in Disneyland, this weekend I acted on it and spent most of my Sunday working on this piece to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland, California.

It features one of the more famous townspeople; the redhead who is auctioned off for a wife as her admirers shout 'we wants the redhead!'.

Prints and phone cases of this illustration are now available on my Society 6 shop: https://society6.com/laurenscotty

Spyro the Dragon



I know everyone is all about #Zelda at the moment but I love this guy, he's up there with Crash as my favourite games characters.

I've been swamped in work recently and i'm trying to get back to making some time for myself. Switching off and relaxing is hard for me but it really does make the world of difference to my productivity if I give myself evenings and weekends off. Recently I've been replaying the original three Spyros!

Maori Warrior


Mahuika was named after the fire deity and from a young age her parents recognised their daughter's strong will and potential. Though it was unusual for females to fulfil the role of warrior, Mahuika, driven by her fierce determination, went on to become one of the best. She led her people to prosperity and prided herself on protecting her family, going on to become a legend in her own right.

Done for the Character Design Challenge over on Facebook. Their theme for this month was 'Maori Warrior'.

Puppy


Saturday sketching. I spend a lot of my time drawing humans but I really love drawing animals. I just had to get this cute puppy out of my system!

Drinking Tea


I say tea... but really I like to believe it's gin ;)
