Daruma quickie by Steph-Laberis Daruma quickie by Steph-Laberis
Well, a bit of a monkey wrench was thrown into my art plans this weekend; I was going to finish a Fledgie, but I ran out of resin for the eyes. Boo! Instead, I decided to dust off some old brushes in Photoshop with the new Cintiq and made a quickie daruma. It feels so GOOD! I can't believe I've used a tablet up until now, I feel old.

Also, if you know what a daruma is, you can tell that I've made a wish ;)

Thank you so much! I will know in the next few months if my hard work is going to pay off. If not, well, another year with one eye and more hard work never killed anyone... He's had one eye for 5 years now.

What do you make yours out of?

XD My Daruma usually have to wait a long time for their other eye too!

I try and make a different style and use a different material every year.
You can see various ones on my Flickr if you're interested.

This year I made Daruma windbells out of porcelain.

I know what they are, mostly, but I never understood why they only had one pupil.
