Woooo, finished~ :D Oh Clint, what a special guy. I love that I get to do stuff like this as commissions.
I won’t lie, I’m a little more proud of how this turned out than it probably actually merits, and I’ll doubtless see plenty of things to tweak (it’s done in copic, but photoshop is a magical thing ohyes) about three minutes after I post it, but hey, such is the way of tumblr. |D
I’ll have prints of this next weekend at Yama-con in Pigeon Forge, TN, and thereafter at other cons. Let me know if anybody wants me to put it up on Etsy too~~
I drew these little ladies a while back when visiting Rachel, who has a Gocco, and was gonna let me try it, because she is awesome and it’s a super nifty thing. Never could get the Gocco to work right for me (Rachel is magical with it but I lack the knack), but I figured I should still put this lineart to good use, so I slapped some color onto it a couple nights ago and this is the result. Bumblebee bats really are so tiny!
Ah gosh, thanks! I love learning and doing art about stuff like that! And yep, it’ll definitely be a print when it’s finished: I’m sure I’ll have it at conventions, and I can also list it on Etsy if you’d like. :)
And oh man, I have soooo many thoughts about the new Thor movie (both good and less good), but I know there are at least a few people who watch this blog who haven’t seen it yet, so I won’t say too much yet. ;)
A post about Guinefort went past my dash sometime earlier tonight, and I saw it a few minutes ago when taking a brief break from client work to mindlessly scroll for a bit, you know how it goes
and then I had to be a bad kid and *properly* interrupt respectable bill-paying activities to dash this out real quick— couldn’t help myself
Totally gonna paint this up all nice and proper. Man it feels good to do some personal art, even just a sketch like this.
Anyone else going to Yamacon in Pigeon Forge TN early next month? I’ll be there in the artist alley, and I keep forgetting to book a hotel room. ^^;;;;
Anyone have space, or want to join me if I book a place? It’ll just be me, and I’m quiet and polite and fit in small spaces~~
This has been done for a while but it fell through the cracks while I was moving. The Wolpertinger (similar to the Jackalope) from Bavarian mythology fighting dirty with a big ole snake.
This was part an art trade with Kaysha. :)
She chose Hare and orange and I took that and ran with it haha.
Copics on Watercolor Paper
I LOVE IIIIT
And man I am super flattered you like my pencil stuff so much, but meanwhile I’m over here going HNNNNNNNN at how amazing your composition and lines and markerwork and EVERYTHING are <3333
Anyone remember the instagram preview of this I posted about a billion years ago?
Yeah me neither.
Anyway! My half of an art trade with the way-more-awesome-than-me dmillust, finally FINALLY done super late. I hope she likes it! She asked for something involving a dolphin skull, and I…sorta got carried away.
These were originally just sort of generic ocean dolphin ghosts, but then someone told me about the recently-extinct baiji (Yangtze river dolphins), and I was like LITERAL GHOST DOLPHINS YESSS and changed them.
(I am POSITIVE I have messed up the anatomy and probably blended multiple skull types, please forgive me cool kids who know dolphin anatomy! It’s super hard to find decent skeletal references for these guys!)
Graphite on gessoed paper, A4.
I know this has been floating out in cyberspace for forever. Man, when I saw the sneak peak for this I was beyond stoked. The awesome-ness of the final is pushing me into the zone of speechlessness. The patience and skill you have to do such dynamic and polished pieces with just pencil never ceases to amaze me.
Just…guh. Thanks for doing an art trade with me Kaysha. <3<3<3
I need your address so I can mail you the original! :D I AM GLAD YOU LIKE IT AAAAH.
Scampering out the door to drive 6 and half hours over to Hampton VA for Nekocon! I’ll be in the artist alley as usual~~ No map yet, but it’s a small alley…come find me and say hi! I’ll have prints and such, and I always always have new stuff since last time!
~~Comic Book City Con~~
For all maaaaaybe three of you who are anywhere near the area —
I will be at Comic Book City Con in Greensboro NC this weekend, on Saturday and Sunday! I’ll be at table E13 in the artist alley - which is pretty small anyway, so I should be hard to miss. c: c:
Posting this dang thing because I’ve been working on it all evening so by golly someone besides me should have to stare at it for a change
Also I will admit I am pretty happy with it - I really like doing these character portraits with backgrounds full of narrative details
Now I just have to actually ink and color it :|
Yay Clint though~
