A few progress shots

The first one is my overall progress on compiling, the second one is a near-final version of a digital card (I labeled this card the wrong color)

The majority of the art for my card game is already done, but now I have the horrifying task of compiling it and editing it. Some of the art was provided by my wife, and I think she specifically made art for two cards. She paints a lot of monsters so it wasn’t that hard to just grab a handful of stuff.

OH MAN I am excited to see this comin’ along :D  the new art is looking SWEET

eeeaaaasing my way back into animating after not doing it for over a month. i’m finding this is mostly an exercise patience and not letting frustration take over! Back when I was working most of what I did animation-wise consisted of small-to-elaborate loops, but I generally didn’t have a ton of time to finesse stuff.
(Also, I’ve been working with my husband’s copy of toonboom and OH MAN. So much better than flash. I don’t feel like I’m fighting the drawing tools/crashes 90 percent of the time!)

FOND MEMORIES OF PUBLIC TRANSIT, digital art, 2014. 

I haven’t been on a train in what feels like a SUPER long stretch of time (over a month!) after having ridden it into the loop area every weekday for four years or so, and I’ve come to the conclusion that I MISS IT A LOT
This is to you, chicago public transit. ;___;

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.)
