I've been busy.

So I've done a few complex pieces this year. Some I love, and some will be ignored in the anti brag book. I will post one that needs to be re-done later. For now, there are two I am happy with. First, I was in landscape mode. I wanted to try a cottage without Snow White or Aurora peeking out the window.   I saw a photo of the cutest house and sketched out a similar one.  When I cut out the main house I liked the texture of one side of the paper more than the other, so I flipped the design.

There was also the need to do another princess. I did snow white first, and its a hot mess design wise. I thought I would be cursed. All my Cinderella attempts were not to my liking, and now
Snow White was wrong.  Undaunted, I sketched an Aurora in the forest. After doing her face four different ways I am pleased. I am a fan of the bunnies. They are just too cute.



For mom,

My mom is a big fan of the weird style I've been working on for years.  I sent a dragon last Christmas to Utah.  She wanted one too. So here is dragon and the sleeping knight 2.0

Mirror mirror

Another storybook done in paper. It doesn't match what I had in my head but it is the closest I've come since Wendy. The smoke around the mirror was a last minute add. It wasn't in my original sketch. What do you think?

A midsummer night's dream

Finished... for now. I can never leave things alone. Its been put in my brag book, I'll check it later.  Fresh eyes and all that.  Next maybe a landscape, or architecture.  No more fairy tales.

Brave Titania

I've wanted to do this character for a year.  Finally a sketch blog had this face that was perfect.  It screamed Titania Queen of the Fairies.  Finishing her today.
