This fate could have been avoided if Mandy had a sassy gay friend...

Both of these are collaborations with Hunter. She sketched them up, and now I'm coloring em 8) Julian (left) is complete, but Mana (right)--I'm still working away on her! Fun fun under the sun.

In other news, more mushy stuff:
Awwwight. Lots of red. Red's been my color, lately, I suppose.

It's a love/hate thing.

Mana and Julian are my favorites, haha!
It's the most demented relationship I've ever written. Long story short, he's incompetent and she wants to kill him for it. Where's the romantic chemistry in that? IT'S A MYSTERY.
This is why I can't write romance novels. Ever, ever, ever.

Well, finally.

Yes...I think it's done.
Truly, there must be a more efficient way to make paintings like this...

Here, have some progress shots!

icons abound!

so...there's a few here.

All but one of these were done as commissions. I think I'm icon-exhausted. I've got three more to do before I'm free of them, though! haha!

Sean is fully responsible for some of these!

Disturbing Proportions

I don't know what these are--but there are now two!
 They're kind of ridiculous and creepy.
 ...There needs to be...more.
 I will make...more.

I can't believe it's not butter!

Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! And welcome to my blogspot. The blog I apparently had for two years prior to this post. I went through the whole "making a new account" procedure, and all it did after I went through the trouble of that--was log me in. I was editing my profile, and was kind of wierded out when it already knew my interests, education, hobbies, and even had a short bio...creepy blogspot.

So, I'm absolutely horrid at keeping up with these journals....for some reason. Which is weird, because my online presence is normally so...good! But alas. These journals seem to escape me.

I suppose I might as well kick this off by posting some sketches and quick things, followed by a current WIP. Because this is an art blog, you see.
So--alright, doing that, then.

Some character sketches for a small story arch I'll be working on for Sean K. Dunkley. It's about sky pirates and such. From left to right, we have Starling, Lark, and Wren :]

Some Artist Trading Cards for a couple of fine folks in an exchange group I'm a part of. These little guys are done in acrylic ink, and are 2.5" x 3.5". All the characters belong to their respective owners, of course.

This here was something I did up in about four(ish) hours. A lot of my work is very character oriented, and I don't actually want to be that artist that just does busts or waist-up portraits of characters doing boring things with some kind of secondary, unimportant background slapped in behind them. This was my first step towards breaking that habit--consequently also my first 'matte' painting of sorts. The Merchant's Republic of Pontis!

And this sketchy little thing here is my current work in progress. Hopefully it'll look sharp and colorful upon completion....

Yay, my first post! Lets see if I can keep this up.
