Tourist

Tourist

A stereotypical tourist-type shot of Roxanne. I quite like the angle and the fun detail.

That hand, on the other hand... well, practice makes perfect. Besides, I think it would look better if it were shaded.

Kneeling

Kneeling

Kneeling. And a very fluffy tail.

Love this one. Love the outfit. A lot of fun all around!

Fennec?

Fennec?

A quick, fun drawing of a... fennec fox? That was the intent, though it didn't really come out (the ears of a fennec are how big!?) Maybe a coyote?

I don't know, but I do think this drawing came out quite well, and I really like her. I hope to draw more of her... you know, if I can figure out what she is...

On the Train

On the Train

Funny story. So, sometime in middle January I was showing my mom my sketchbook, and she starts to ask me something... knowing my mother, I flinch, thinking it will be a critique of my art. But no, this time, it was that I was still signing my pictures "11" when it's 2012. ::Head. Hit. Keyboard.:: I mean, what kind of idiot would even put the date in their signature!?!? Oh...

So, what would a sane person do? I mean, I have been relatively prolific, meaning I had a good number of images dated incorrectly. Post them anyway, maybe with a notation? Make a single new signature and photoshop it over them? Or do what I did; scan every image, remove the second "1," print a sheet of all the signatures, draw a bunch of "2"'s, then rescan the sheet, and manually add in the replacement signatures to each image.

Fun times. And to top it all off, I'm not even sure this drawing was done in 2012! It was either this one or the next one... but geeze...

Anyway.

Roxanne on the train, looking out the window. Fun to use the whole page, although I'm not all that happy with this. Proportions and line strength are off, and a foxface against a window is... difficult. Still, it is what it is. Was very difficult to clean up without loosing too much detail.

Till next time!

By the way, did you ever get the feeling you were living in the future? 2012... geeeze...

Happily Freezing

Happily Freezing

Was this my first drawing of 2012, or was it this one? Whatever, doesn't matter.

Made during a very cold spell. Obviously. Not happy with the expression. I'm also bad at motion/shaking lines. But that's what practice is for.

Be My Valentine

Be My Valentine

A brief interlude to post this, one day late, as seems to be my MO. Well, I did draw it yesterday, so that has to be some kind of excuse...

I really like this, and it was a lot of fun. Only thing I'm not happy about was my job cleaning it up. I sometimes wonder about cleaning my pencil drawings in Photoshop; I like the look, but sometimes wonder if I loose too much detail. I guess what I wonder is if I should keep the pencil work and the pen work very separate, and not try to make pencil look more like pen. But I don't know.

A Fox on a Bed

A Fox on a Bed

Sorry for the lack of updates! A bunch of stuff has gotten in the way, including some artistic stuff.

Take this image, for example. It was actually drawn a few months ago, but upon reflection, I realized she needed weight lines to show that she was on a bed... not standing in some ethereal plane.

Well, anyway, I think it came out pretty well. That's her hair over the right bosom, by the way, something which would probably be clearer in color.

Many more updates to come. Take care!

Colleen on the Floor

Colleen on the Floor

...and drinking coffee.

Not crazy about how this came out, but it was a lot of fun to draw.

Merry Belated Christmas!

Merry Christmas, two days late!

So, um, yeah... ::blushes:: I had kinda meant to post these pictures before the holiday, but I was so busy I kinda never got around to it... my fault! Hope it's not too late! Here they are:

Roxanne Christmas: A fun, silly Christmas image.  Funny story: my whole idea in drawing this was to draw a character wearing a Santa hat.  After I finished drawing, put my stuff away, and stood up, I realized I had forgotten to draw the hat!  The whole reasons I had drawn the picture in the first place!  Oh well.  Thought about adding it, but I think it's okay as it is.Roxanne Christmas: A fun, silly Christmas image. Funny story: my whole idea in drawing this was to draw a character wearing a Santa hat.

Merry Christmas, but...: Merry Christmas, but if you ever make me wear this again...  Colleen before Christmas.  I do have a feeling this is how she would react, especially if she was in a bad mood.  Other times, she'd wear it willingly...  Can you believe I almost forgot the hat in this one, too?  Damn.  But the image wasn't finished, but I found a place to put it ;-).Merry Christmas, but...: Merry Christmas, but if you ever make me wear this again... Colleen before Christmas.

Sergkz-esque Fox

Sergkz-esque Fox

A fox in the style of Sergkz (or at least I hope that's his moniker, he also goes by Kejzfox). I love his style, and it gives me a great opportunity to try a new look.

This one is kind of a mix between our styles. I really think it came out well!
