Pumpkin Huggers ---Commissions Open--- by Italian-Pitbull
Pumpkin Huggers ---Commissions Open---
To order your own hugger, all you need is a reference of your character or photos of your pet or tell me which cartoon character it is that you want. Next, pick your favorite pumpkin! Choose wisely- once picked, there's no changing ;) Pumpkin Huggers are $30 INCLUDING shipping in the USA (international customers, please contact me to hammer out details).

Pumpkin Huggers are about 9-10 inches tall, are hand-drawn on 65 lb/95 gram acid-free sketch paper, colored in with Copic (and sometimes Rose Art) markers for a base, then layered on top is Prang Colored Pencil and inked with a Prismacolor Fine-Line Marker. The drawing is then attached to a sheet of acid-free cardstock with spray glue, allowed to dry and cut out with an Xacto blade. After that, your pumpkin hugger is assembled by attaching it to the designated pumpkin, and lastly, shipped right to your door!

Limited time offer, hurry while supplies last. Offer valid until supplies run out or until winter comes (whichever comes first) because they are a FALL SPECIAL only!
Busy Right Now... by Italian-Pitbull
Busy Right Now...

Personal art for my page Italian Pitbull Artworks:
Ambra is letting you all know that art progress is slow for a reason. 
I do get things done, however I have a life outside of the internet (which maybe is shocking to some people? I don't know...) and currently that life is very very busy. Every day is a battle to be able to get things organized for more than just a few hours and to try and get everything that NEEDS to be done completely done and on time. This includes, but is not limited to: homework, bills, all the wonderful roles and responsibilities that come with being an adult and living on your own, that kind of stuff.

The other day I received a message complaining that I'd be "more popular" if I posted "more art".

Well, that's just it. I don't work for popularity stats. On the flip side of the argument: I've got a lot to do right now and as much as I'd love to have no life just to do art all day every day, that's not the case. Don't be so quick to think every artist has nothing better to do than to sit and draw stuff that people ask them to do. Some of us have college, some of us have other jobs on top of art, some of us may even have families to take care of- all meaning one thing... Art does not take up 100% of our lives. Perhaps there are artists out there who have the liberty of taking up 100% of their lives with art, however most people I know and myself included aren't privvy to that lifestyle. 

Artist's note:
I hate hands. Also where did the hips go? One forearm is tiny (there goes that radius and ulna.... wow), but on the opposite side, great arm, tiny hand. I think the head is maybe slightly too big or else that's an illusion thanks to my significant lack of hips. She's meant to be athletic, however I just sort of made her "manly" ergh.
PLUS SIDE! Going over the colored pencil with a colorless blender is a really nice idea and makes shading that much easier! 

Downside to that bit: I need more colorless blenders :< I had used the few I had enough times to rip through them, sooooo I chucked three markers before I finally finished this.

I ALSO LOVE MY INABILITY TO WRITE THINGS IN A STRAIGHT LINE, but I did use my white pen in a few places on this and am very happy with the results (you'll never tell lol because it's nowhere that's white- I rubbed it to use it as a lightening/blending effect)

Materials: Sketch paper, Prang Colored Pencils, Prismacolor Fine Line Marker, Copic Ciao Marker (only one marker used- a fleshy tan colour for shading), and Jelly Roll Sakura White Gel Pen (for some blending details)

Hello again :) This week I'm bringing something special to the table.
I have an art challenge for you. For those of you who have facebook, view it here - by liking the page you'll be actively involved in the community aspect as well.

The challenge is called "I don't care if the world knows my secrets" and here's some info for you:
This is an art challenge designed to share with the world that no matter how old you are, a comfort item (such as character pijamas, plush toys etc) is not something to be ashamed of, or made fun of by other adults.

How to take on the challenge:
The objective is to either draw OR buy artwork of your character with said item of choice and in a way that portays when that comfort item is used (example, sick/depressed/had a bad day at work).

Some FAQ:

What if I dont have a character?
-- Pick your favorite animal and make it into/ask to have it made into a "cartoon"

What do I need to post with my image?
-- Your character's name, your age (you dont have to be specific, for example, 20s, 30s, mid 30s, etc), describe the comfort item, and let us know why that item is special to you.
Oh and credit the artist who made it by linking to their gallery. If its your work, post your gallery link.

Do I have to draw it?
No. You can commission your challenge pic from anyone that you'd like.

Suggested, but not required:
We encourage you to draw/commission multiple instances of your character and comfort item. It helps boost morale :) and it helps inspire others to show the world that there is nothing wrong with their comfort item.

Keep it clean. This challenge was intended for view by the general public!!

When posting to your profiles/personal galleries, you must drop a line in that says that you challenge your viewers to participate in this project and provide a link to this page so that they can read about the challenge.
If you get somebody that doesnt use facebook, you can copy/paste the info they need, or screenshot it for them :)

We ask that you restrict backgrounds to being very simple in nature UNLESS that background is required for your story. If your background is not necessary for telling the story, keep it to just simple, soft-tone (please no obnoxiously LOUD) colors that do not distract viewers from the image thats telling the story.

Most importantly, have fun, be inspired, and happy sharing! :D


The idea is fairly simple. You can post your challenge pieces anywhere. If you upload them here and do NOT have a facebook, please tag me and I will upload your challenge for you to the community based page. If you are a member of facebook- please post it directly to the page and I will share it so that it shows up on the timeline :)

Your challenges can be posted anywhere you'd like- just be sure to link back to the challenge as stated under the FAQ

Here is my start to the challenge:…
