More monster pillows

More monster pillows!  These two were also made as gifts.  The left (green), for my friend Lena who's due to have a baby boy as of a week from today.  The right, I made for my friend Ashley.  Cuz I wanted to and it suited her.  The hair was an experiment and I kinda like how it turned out.  Now if only I can find time to make more...

Buttercup, my re-imagining

I watched the Powerpuff Girls Movie yesterday and just had to draw my favorite of the trio for the first time in quite a while.

Monster Pillows

A friend of mine introduced me to a brilliant craft-making idea, which I combined with my own designs and made-- monster pillows!  The little orange guy on Andy's back was the prototype, which I gave to my husband Matt.  The big one on the left I made for my 1-year-old nephew Gaius and the other, my 1-year-old nephew Milo.  So much fun!  There will be more... Oh yes... there will be more...

Posters for the kids

My twin niece (Giovanna) and nephew (Roman) recently celebrated their 4th birthday.  They also recently happen to move from a small appartment into a sizeable house, and now have rooms of their own.  So, I took out my colored pencils and sharpies and made them some posters.  These are drawn on 18"x24".

Pony Pwnage

This image is based on actual events.  Of a Magic: The Gathering game I played this morning with my buddy Jesse.  I had to draw out the scene of my armored pegasus who had two scimitar artifacts equiped to to and how it slaughtered his undead.

Gifted painting

I made this painting for some friends of mine who recently had a daughter tamed Terabinth. I decided to make a watercolor painting for them with my favorite character of mine, Kayla, sleeping under a Terabinth tree. I took a couple pictures of the process.

Equipment: Being sure I have all of this is improtant. Note the sketches and color experiments before I start the drawing. And the hot cup of chai tea with cream on the side. Not too close to the brush-water, now.

Pencil and inking is done.

Added in some blue shadow before applying the watercolor to give it some depth.

The finished painting. Proof that a decent painting can be done with cheap equipment.

Framed and ready to give.

Arming up for a toy war! This one was a lot of fun.

Watercolor fun

I've been experimenting with paints recently, including watercolor and gouache. I think I've made some progress but I've still got lots to learn! The bird paintings were mother's day gifts. The firey sparrow (the South East Sun's Birth Sparrow) was for my mom and the duck (the Red-Billed Prismatic Merganser) was for my grand-mom/nana Gayle.

New cat tattoo design

I know I said my last design was final, but this one I'm truly excited about! Now I just have to muster up the guts to get it for my b-day next month...

Fenbi music video

Have you been curious at all about what I've been working on? Well, I havent been posting just some measly sketches because I've been lazy-- it's because I've been busy! If you didnt know already, I've been working for the past two months on a music video for a band I'm fond of and am friends with, the Fenbi International Superstars (look em up on myspace!). It's nearing completion and I wanted to post some screenshots to share with you the finished look. I hope you're as excited as I am to see this thing when it's done!

Gnome warrior woman on wyrm

It felt like it'd been a while since I'd done a sketch just for fun that I made up while I went. And I liked it so much I got carried away wih the coloring, which is pretty rare for me. Yay!
