...and so it begins...

First of all I would like to wish everyone a Blessed Beltane :D
 This is the pagan celebration of High Spring, and the joining of the Great Lady with the Lord of the Green Woods. A time of joyous celebration and looking to the future and summer...Yay!!!
And with true perfect timing, it is also the start of Ayala's new challenge 29 Faces for May :D. I am combining this challenge with The Butterfly Effect's "Heroes" challenge.

My first face is of the archetypal "hero". strong nosed, rugged jawed, gentle eyed....and always clean shaven lol

Shelle is hosting this prompt, and has set a few questions for us, regarding our "Super hero" qualities :D

1. What Super Power would you posses?
I would want the power to turn things into chocolate!

2. What's your costume of choice?
Fluffy bunny ears ...and a mask with whiskers

3. Do you have/want a sidekick? 
Chick-a dee...(can you see where this is going?)

4. What's your weakness?
Church Fetes and car boot sales

5. You a lover or a loner?
Derrrr! Hello!!! I'm a Rabbit!!!!

6. Do you have a secret identity/ordinary life to juggle?
Yes, for most of the time I am a slightly eccentric Hare

7. Being a hero can make you enemies - who's/what's yours?
Willie Wonka...he doesn't like me giving chocolate away for free!

8. What's your motto or catchphrase?
HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE!!!! Here have some more chocolate eggs :D

So there you have 1 of 29 Faces for May. A lot of my sketches this time will be tinted charcoal and/or pencil, though that's not to say I won't be throwing in a few paintings and journal pages too :D

Off to prepare something nice for dinner...I think of this festival as a sort of wedding anniversary(cos you don't want to know how C**P ours ends up if we try to celebrate on the actual date!!!), so nummy food and a glass of something sparkly me thinks, and a cuddle with my Hero :D
Blessed Be :D XXX

  2. I love how you have been the face of the superhero, if mine is nose is strong and great!

  15. Oh, You have very fine drawing. Your Hero is very serious as the Hero must do.

  16. Your hero is super - rather serious so I think he needs a jolly good TICKLE!!
