Bugs and Fluttery Creatures

It’s June 1st! We’re halfway through 2015 and I’ve accomplished nothing!
Or at least that’s how it’s feeling.

These are a few things I doodled between paying projects. Sort of as warm-ups and sort of as experiments (I’m trying to get coloured pencil blending down since it’s been many years since I’ve using pencil crayons).

The Spanish Fly on the far right started with great potential but fizzled into an overzealous ugly mess. I’ll try him again some other time.

Anywho, I hope you all have a happy June 1st!

Rough Stuff

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything here. Um, this is just some rough prep work for something I plan on colouring. I’m not very good with watercolours so I tend t practice what I’m planning so I don’t screw it up horribly on the final piece.

Watercolours on 50lb watercolour paper.

Moleskine 1

I don’t know about you, but I like to decorate my sketchbooks. Especially since I can never find ones with nice designs on them.

I recently purchased a few moleskines, the 120 page cahier in Extra Large, I bought the packs of 3 in black, and in a brown manila colour. So in total, I have 6. This is just one of the ones I decorated. Simple silver antlers. It’s so pretty, almost like it has foil on it in person. If you’d like a print for sale of this comment below, and I’ll take a better photo so I can add it to my Society6 shop.

Deer Skull

As you can see, my skills for creating titles are ah-ma-zing. *Sarcasm*

This one took over a year to finish.

I wasn’t working on this on and off for a year, I started it, did 8-12 hours of work on it, then left it there sitting on my hard drive until exactly a year later. Like most of my purely digital work, it started off as a doodle/practice painting of the deer skull. If you haven’t noticed by now, I like bones. They are, and probably for a long while will be a common occurrence in most of my work. Also, I really like antlers.

Suprise! This too is a print available for purchase on my Society6 page! Go here to buy one!

Orchids

Something a little more recent. Started off as a mindless doodle.

Done back in January of 2012. I actually made this into a purchaseable print on my Society6 page. Go check it out and maybe buy a print here. There’s also a skin for your iphone ;).

WIP – Skeleton Knight

 

 

This is something I started on a whim. Drawing armor tends to be much more complicated than I had imagined.

Drawing armor is proving to be a fairly tough challenge for me, so this may sit in the unfinished pile for some time. At least until I can create the armor in a way that I end up happy with it. On the plus side I did the banner nice!
