Sometimes art is messy.

Traditional and then digital... Not exactly satisfied with it. But I'm not going to rework it anymore, it's time to move on. Sometimes you just gotta live with the end result, as sticky and messy as it may be!

In the meantime, keep dancing!

    fun character designs

    I've recently done some funny character sketches of what my little dog and cat would appear like if they were my human daughters. Yes, maybe I'm weird. :) It's a fun excercise though.

    Here's an old sketch of my animals as animals:

    and now as people (they've switched places, my dog is now the little annoying sister)

    This was a really quick idea, but I like Natasha's beat-up doll as a prop, and Snooper's icecream cone. (She's a little chunky.)

    My in-laws have three dogs and two cats, and my parents have two cats... this was really fun so I think I'll try it with them too.

    Illustration Friday: Insect

    This wasn't my original illustration, but I was playing around in photoshop, and did this butterfly piece, and realized it fit the theme. :) So here it is!

    Another fun picture.

    I was mostly experimenting with creating different textures using the different brushes. In other words, I'm totally procrastinating on "real" work. :P

    Just a fun little drawing I did. I wasn't going to post this, but, eh--why not? :)

    sleepy dreams

    Every night this is how I sleep. Curled up on 1/4th of the bed, and being squashed by furry animals.

    Illustration Friday: Song

    Another done by hand: prismacolor pencils. I thought of the first songs I ever learned how to play back in beginning band. None of us were very good then. :p

    new banner

    new portrait for me...

    I did this in photoshop. I wanted to get a graphic, cut out look... I'm still struggling in Illustrator, anyone with pointers feel free to comment. :)
