[WIP] Jackalope

*dusts off blog* Yeah, it’s been a while. This was requested by Spyke, and I already see a lot of things that need fixing -.- Will do some tweaks before coloring.


EDIT: I’ve done loooots of fixing and posted the final piece, which looks a lot better!  You can also see it on FA.

[WIP] Bailey.

Only one post today. Reached the end of my backlog and need to reload. This is a pic I started at Sketch Nite this weekend for my boyfriend BaileyFox (FA’s ABBailey1981).

I sent him a copy for feedback but lately he’s been as elusive as Aurora Giselle SanDiego, so I may not hear back for a while: you guys get to give the feedback.

I had the pose and a vague idea of the setting before I started. I only had to change it slightly so the scenery would make a little sense. You can’t make out much of the background in this scan but I think it may come out pretty well; someone who saw it at Sketch Nite said ‘that looks so peaceful; I wish I was there.’

So I think at least that part of it has the potential for success. Another thing I’m trying new here is the eye shape. Those of you who watch my stuff know that in general my eyes tend to suck. So last week I sat down with nine favorite artists—in alphabetical order, Blazingcheeks, Bravo, Captaingerbear, Greening, Kahmari, Khatoblepas, -Kronexfire-, Kuma, and Raccoondrew—and examined eye shapes in several of their pieces, copying out many. I have a whole sheet of eyes now, and I’ve learned a couple of things now for my own work: chief among which is that the visible part of the eye—or at least of the eye + lid complex in general—tends to be drawn with a shape leaning towards the triangular. This was entirely news to me. (I’ll probably post my eye sheet later.)

At any rate, I do like the eye I came up with on this piece, even if it does feel a bit toonier than my usual stuff.

Not all gods can see the future—but I knew, when Aiol looked at me that day, that he didn’t see my future in making wheels turn. It was the disappointment in his face—so intense, it made my own heart sink, and I couldn’t look him in the face. I wasn’t sure whether I was going to be sick or if I was going to cry; luckily neither happened to me before the god turned his gaze away.

I suppose he spoke to the temple masters about me; I was never called back to the class again.

[WIP] John and Murphy.

Previous | First

Started work on finishing this one… just a bit of linework so far.

John and Murphy.

John the polar bear requested a pic for his birthday. He was sort of vacillating between his polar bear character in a naval uniform and his triceratops character Murphy, so I drew both of them for him.

I gave him the sketch at this year’s Furry Fiesta, along with the lineart of the last pic I did for him. Will work on coloring it eventually.

I tried doing a background on this. It just didn’t work out. I tried a couple, actually. But they were all grafted-on kind of things. When I start doing new stuff from here on out I’m going to try and remember to keep backgrounds in mind. Don’t you all forget to remind me.

Another full day

WIP – Real (2)

I am not at all happy with this guy yet. Something about the angle in the photograph has really ruined the shape of his head so I’ve got a lot of fiddling to do with it yet.

Lounging – Final

More stuff done = more late nights working, yarrgh! But it’s all good, just so long as I keep burnin’ through this art queue I’ve been building up…. and don’t sleep through the alarm clock in the AM.
