I’ve become so enamored w/ working in manga studio 5 that I’ve been painting and doodling and basically almost completely avoiding inking the comic I started working on earlier this year/late last year (in manga studio 4 . I could move it over to the other program, but…. I. Well.)
I REALLY OUGHTA FINISH IT, BUUUUUUUUUT in the meantime - I’ve been farting around with worldbuilding for the other little creeps sharing my headspace.  Pictured are Griselda’s parents - she takes after her father in body type, so for most of her childhood regarded her mother as a mysterious and intimidating giant! HOW COULD SHE EVER ASPIRE TO WOMANHOOD with this creature setting the bar so high?
also I guess I’ve decided that these guys have human-like hair distribution? except in cases like pops here, who is absurdly hairy by his species’ standards.

A READING ADVENTURE AWAITS - 2014, manga studio 5.

I can’t stop painting these guys! BIG SURPRISE, TODD IS UPSET AGAIN.  I usually don’t do a lot of SUPER DARK paintings or pictures like this, and now I wanna do more in the future.

Some recent twitter doodles. The middle one was a request from a Twitterino, the one at the end is of Razor Ramon and Jake “The Snake” Roberts. The first one is a quick doodle of the characters from my graphic novel, simply because it’s been a while since I’ve drawn them.

PS! my husband draws the best stuff. THE BEST. look at that bee and bat and try not to smile for a hundred years, i dare you

"Fine Dining" - digital art, 2014.

After painting Valen and Todd, I thought I should try my hand at painting a BIGGER piece with an honest-to-goodness background (not just a little blob of dirt floating in the middle of nowhere). 
SO IT TOOK LIKE A WEEK, and I’m pretty pleased with the results! Manga Studio 5 makes working with perspective SUPER EASY even for a big perspective-phobic dork like myself. 
Once again, I used Ray Frenden’s painterly brushes, along with some of the dry brush tools from his latest brush set (mostly for the character lineart.)

Newly Discovered Deep Sea Worms Unknown to Science

Scientist and marine researcher Alexander Semenov, recently released a number of incredible new photographs of worms, several of which may be completely unknown to science.

Half of the photos were taken near the Great Barrier Reef in Australia during a 2-week conference on marine worms called polychaetes. Semenov photographed 222 different worm species which are now in the process of being studied and documented by scientists.

The other half of the photos were taken during Semenov’s normal course of work at the White Sea Biological Station in northern Russia where he’s head of the scientific divers team. 

give me all of these

I have nothing but respect and admiration for researchers and photographers like Alexander Semenov. His work is utterly mesmorising and a wealth of inspiration. For those interested you can find his site HERE, his behance gallery HERE, and Flickr HERE.
