Quick draw

I started this a few months ago (haha, longer ago than I last posted here actually…) and it just got snowballed under everything else I was up to.

It’s my contribution to the ‘cute girl with dragon’ trope in fantasy illustration, that sort of seems like a requirement anymore…

Water color, and ink (experimentally, I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting lately) applied with a brush. I have mixed feelings about it, but I’d love to hear input from others! What do you think?

Winter scrabblings

Oy! I just noticed how long it’s been since I updated my blog. A long time (Happy Hallowe’en again everyone!) I’ve had a lot of projects (Village by the Sea! Fireside Magazine #3! And others) not to mention Thanksgiving and Hanukkah and the impending time-crisis that is Christmas.

I don’t really have much new to show or talk about, but I feel bad for the blog-neglect so here: some things from my sketchbook!

Have a wonderfully dragonish day and I’ll be back!
(Soon, I promise.)

Oh look what I found

I was cleaning my desk cubbies yesterday, and found these.

Dragon and BirdsMoth monster

The moth creature I remember abandoning, because I realized that I’d accidentally used water-soluble walnut ink on a piece I’d intended to watercolor. The dragon I remember drawing (it was around the same time as this piece), but I can’t for the life of me recall why I put it down.

Artist secret: we give up on a lot of things. Though now that I’ve found these, who knows. I might clean them up and use them for digital coloring practice.

In other news, I recently revived my Dribbble account. If you’re a member, be sure to drop by and say hello! I need more folks to follow.

 

Working my way back toward pink

I’m still overbooking myself. And, I’m still getting sick at inconvenient moments. Feeling a little bit better though, so I made this.

Cassowary dragonIt’s a dragon based on cassowary and horse traits. Just a little watercolor doodle, like the last one.

I do have a few things planned for the blog, so look for more updates soon! Trying to get back into the swing of a regular working schedule.
