Finished that comic, and setting aside a day or two before I do one last check-over. In the meantime, starting on some small, (relatively) simple portraits that’ll have plants in the background.  They’re supposed to sort of correspond to the characters in front of them, but I haven’t given *that* much thought beyond “this character is KINDA like a cactus, I guess”.

Mechanical pencil and rolling ball pen, 2014
A bulette, or landshark, with a mighty mouth of choppers. Probably best to full view this guy since it’s horizontally-oriented. This was another “have you ever drawn x?”-inspired sketch.
More loose inks and unerased pencils. I was just sort of goofing around with the mouth/teeth and I think it turned out decent. Also important: tail straight up is scary tail.

WHAT A PRETTY BABY, I LOVE HIM

Doodledump! More story/character brainstorming stuff scrawled onto notecards. Immediately jotting my thoughts down instead of letting them percolate into “this is too silly to use” mush has been a big help. 

I’m still slowwwwly inking a comic starring Hank and Griswald (the big weird-headed guy and little weird-headed guy in jumpsuits, up there) that I’m now not TERRIBLY fond of, story-wise, but I’m still really proud of all the work that went into it, and it looks pretty good, so. Y’all will see that, eventually! 

But finishing ANOTHER comic is taking priority over it right now, and then I have a bunch of other small stories I want to get on paper, too. WHO KNEW THIS STUFF WAS SO TIME-CONSUMING?!

(also, at the bottom: cats I drew while listening to “cats”. I… am more of a Sondheim person when it comes to musicals, so let’s just leave it at that.)

tiny pencils + color concept for a comic I’m working on. It’s supposed to look vaguely like one of those tray liner placemats at fast food restaurants, for reasons that will be clearer when you see the whole comic. (EVENTUALLY).

I wasn’t GONNA make a skin for the thunder holiday contest but ugh I LOVE GLOWY BLUE STUFF SO MUCH, HOW COULD I POSSIBLY RESIST.
(I like how this turned out but I want ALL THE ROBOTIC LOOKING ONES SUBMITTED SO FAR THEY ARE SO RAD OMG)
also started working on an axolotl-themed coatl skin, which i shall call axocoatl because i’m traasssssshhhhhhhhh
i hate you, procrastination dragons. i hate you so much

I clearly have other things I could be working on, but this is basically the only thing I was able to bring myself to finish artwise today. phooey. 
STILL! Coloring someone else’s lineart is a nice exercise. Especially when also trying to make your coloring work with the existing shadow layer.

I tried my hand at coloring some of the line art a couple/few weeks ago, it is INCREDIBLY satisfying to just start plopping color on pre-flatted artwork, ahahah. GOD.  Both of these are unfinished but still, FUN. If I ever hoard up enough gems maybe I’ll try again.

more dopey dragon junk. TECHNICALLY ART THOUGH so here it goes on my main blog.

Help me clear these little dorks outta my lair!  There’s three tiger/shimmer/gembond Tundras in what I think are pretty pleasing color combinations (all for 8500 on the auction house) and a gen 2 mirror. 

(IS GEN 2 A THING. AM I PRICING RIGHT. WHATS GOING ON)

I started a side blog for flight rising, because I’ve already cluttered my twitter up with this nonsense ENOUGH. Here it goes instead!

HEY LOOK it’s my animation reel. Not a ton of stuff, but I seem to have misplaced a lot of the animation I did for my last job. :[ 

The dialogue I animated comes from The Todd Glass Show Episode 35, which features Paul F Tompkins as a guest.  I was GOING to animate a later chunk of this bit, but it would have been ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE to figure out the individual phonemes, it was so raspy and weird. 

You can also check it out on my fancy-dancy website, but it’s all stretched out because I have yet to actually bother learning how to do anything beyond the basics with squarespace’s templates.
