PPF and Petro Carved Rock

Hello PPFers! I think I'm finally done with "Cliff Guardian". I put some detail into the lizard's head and the dwellings. Maybe I will do more later but for now I'm going to say its done.

I started thinking it would be nice to make a larger painting for a tshirt on Zazzle since the first ones were all from ACEOs or straight from the Wacom pad. So I started this sketch of an iguana rock band!

Next week I will start painting it with watercolors...but I couldn't resist goofing around in Photoshop Elements before I put the real paint on. I photographed the sketch as I went along and here's what I did in Photoshop to the lead guitar player before I drew the rest of the band on the paper.

I finally found the bag with some of the carved rocks I did for the Etsy shop a couple years ago. I'm still unpacking from our two major moves,lol. Might still be a while till I get the shop back up but in the meantime I can show ya the rocks from here.
 Happy PPF. Thank you Eva and Kristin for hosting our party every Friday !!!! Hugs, Deb

    1. Oh I would love to see a photo of the lizzies with turquoise tails, how beautiful. We have a lizard here called a blue tailed skink but it is more of a dark blue, very pretty though!
