Cat... ladies.

More of 'em! Still working on that sphinx story....
Got this alternately gridded/blank journal thing in Portland, with some plants printed on the pages.  I love it!  Watercolours make the pages all wrinkly like those plain moleskins do.  Plus with the flowers it's like someone's started the sketch for you so there's less performance anxiety.  Also I ought to be camping right now.  But no, working. PoO-urns.
See below for WIPs!

"Shedding" WIP


Here is the original sketch for my Totoro piece (it took a lot of trials trying to come up with something interesting when I gave in and just drew the fluffy fox creature my subconscious wanted to), plus some darkish in-progress shots while I was painting it.  It went from light to dark, mostly - hadn't ever painted something without outlines before and it won't be my last!

Totoro Forest Project

Oh hey I can finally post about this!! This is my piece for the Totoro Forest Project auction to happen later in the year to benefit the Sayama Forest. Check out the website and all the amazing submissions from the other contributors!!  What a cute little website, eh?
*note: If you would like to repost this image, please feel free to, with a link pointing to the Totoro Forest website!

Flash crashed. I drew this chick based on an enormously large woman with powder pink and cornsilk hair (both colours a little fried due to the peroxide but two of my favorites together). She was quite a sight to behold. I also saw some cute pink girl boxers so I threw those on her too.  Sometimes drawing those items that push your gluttonous consumerist buttons are satisfying enough (and easier on your wallet).  Like shoes and such.  You ever draw some food item that looks so good you just have to have it for dinner?  That tends to happen to me if I draw fancy hot dogs or noodles.  Whoa, tangent!
Shorts + Uggs = Ugh.
Some show development stuff!
Maybe I should go to bed. The symbols don't make sense anymore.  Sorry for the lameness, got no time fer nuthin' these days.
