High waisted pants!

I met a woman by the name of Lavonia Parks, at a gallery opening here in Atlanta, who was wearing the most wonderful high waisted pants! I can never wear high-waisted pants myself, because my torso is waaay too short, and they would probably go all the way up to my collarbone. But I can at least draw these pants, and women who wear them, so here we go!

Hope you like!

Power of the Pen

It's amazing how much less work I've been producing since getting a job a year ago. It's quite sad actually. But I don't think I always give myself enough credit. I've always gauged my successes in art by how many completely finished, colored illustrations I have. But I still have been drawing quite a lot. I've inked a bunch of things, and I never posted them because I never seem to see the value in them. I found some inked illustrations today and realized that I need to give them more attention.

Sketching and inking has always been my favorite part of the art process for me. That, and seeing a finished, colored illustration. But for some reason, I can never seem to get colors right. There have been very few illustrations where I've been truly happy with the end result. I think it's simply because I love doing lineart so much, that once a piece has been colored, it takes the attention away from the part I have the most enjoyment in. I need to find a balance between line and color, or even better: a marriage between the two.

This is a struggle that I have been facing for years. Any advice anyone wants to give me would be extremely helpful.

But for now, have some inked drawings I found laying around in my Bristol pad!

Ursula, one that I abandoned coloring on
 Snow, from Norovirus

The inks of Midna, from one of my previous posts!

These are all huge, so if anyone wants to take a crack at coloring the lineart, feel free to use it as a test (not as actual profitable work, of course! Don't make money off me plz) Show me the result, maybe it will help me, who knows!?

The Red

Hello All! Lately I've been obsessed with a red 2mm prismacolor lead, and that sole thing has somehow reawakened my ability to draw. Of course it's all in my head, but it really does feel good on paper. Have some:

  I designed this girl last year, for a video game idea, Right here!

And this is a random fish girl...that's it for now, but I actually haven't uploaded a lot of my stuff...oops.

More later!

Midna Nouveau

More for Otakon! Midna is one of my favorite game characters ever. I love drawing her. And I love art nouveau.


Otakon 2012

I'm going to Otakon and having a table there, so naturally I need to produce a huge amount of work again! Here's some arts for you then; personifications of the 5 directional gods of Chinese mythology:


More to come!

Some more characters

Currently on our Facebook group, me and my lovely friend, Emily Sampson, are doing a challenge where we draw one of our original characters a day for the month of April. Here are some of mine:

Spectre, from some unnamed story from like 12 years ago.

Jesse, from Wandering Stars (also found here with her creatures)

This...wasn't from the challenge....

And Ilia and Kie from Brass Roots!

Quick update! Bye!

Wood Sprite and friends

Hi all! I'm doing work, but I keep forgetting to update here! So here's some actual finished illustrations I've done in the past month!

I've also been doing plenty of sketching; we have a facebook group that I'm a part of, and it's an excellent motivator to keep drawing everyday. Here are only a few:

That's all for now. Happy Easter!

Daily character #5

She's a smoke illusionist!

Far too long

Moving to ATL and working full-time at Floyd County is wonderful, but it took a lot out of me! I have been far less productive than I usually am; I haven't finished any illustrations in such a long time! However, I have been making an effort to try to keep drawing, even though the four-month art block that landed on me after I got to ATL. It has finally lifted, and I'm still trying my best to finish a decent piece of work now that I have something to work with! Shame on me. Here's some of what I have been drawing though since being here:

I forgot about these drawings in the beginning of the Fall:

This is my friend, Lionel!


I went to CTN in November! It was AMAZING! Here's a drawing from Sean Galloway (Cheeks), a portrait of me done for a demo! (the screen shut off, so he drew it traditionally)
Here's some newer arts:

I had to do an illustration back in May for a LucasFilm competition (I was one of the winners and the illustration doesn't exist anymore, YAY!) But I developed some of the characters I used for the illo during the process:

I drew these a few days ago (you see how I can't draw as well anymore because I have been OUT OF PRACTICE):

Hopefully, more will come to follow!
