A work in progress of another bass-crazed beastie. This one is dedicated to Mike Watt--an amazing musician and a true gentleman. ((For those of you interested, I've begun taking commissions for a wee bit again...check my miniscule site for updated info. Thanks!))
Well, howdy there, yerf v.2.0! Guess what li'l bundles of bloodsucking joy I'm working on this summer? (btw, if anyone out there knows how to tell an Och. fitchi from an Och. stimulans, I'd really, really like to know. :)
This is a piece I did for the NERO (a LARP I play) Sarr racepacket. The Sarr have an ingame ability that gives them sword length claws. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to realistically translate something that looks like a big red sword into a set of claws growing out of her hand. I still like the pic though.
I love this piece! I'm so tired of seeing pictures of male horses that I absolutely would love to take home, except for that one small (er, generally overly large) detail that folks tend to add. I suppose you gotta draw what sells, but there are those of us out there who'd buy the clean stuff too! Anyhow, this is done with marker and color pencil and I grabbed the Forbes Clan Kilt pattern and drew in each and every line.
Here's an old piece I was doing for a colaborative Tarot deck. I was thinking of Death along the lines of it's meaning, Rebirth. I really like the colors, but in the end I went with something much more symbolic.
"Say goodnight Gracie." "Goodnight Gracie!" Greyhounds aren't the most intelligent of animals, but they are so damn cute! Everyone should go out and adopt one today. Gracie was created with marker and color pencil on a 5x7 piece of bristol. She was reworked from a 2 year old sketch. Never throw away your art! Old sketches are the best source for inspiration.
Here's another reworked 2 year old sketch. Originally titled "Spring Hare" and part of my season's quartet, her name got changed to Luanne during a King of the Hill episode. She just looks like she has her namesake's personality. Color pencil and Marker on Bristol.
I've started putting together my class excersises for my computer coloring class starting next winter. This is one of my examples for one of my excersise. It's simple, but that's perfect for my students to learn on.
