There's always more!

Her hair was supposed to go DOWN--like, you'd turn the card over and her head would be hanging down.  Yeah.  Well.  I got excited while writing the text and DID IT UPSIDE DOWN.

So.  There ya go.

Kira, of Dark Crystal fame

Mokey, my favorite Fraggle

 Beaker needs no introduction.

Crap, I promised myself I was going to write more in here!  I finally got inspired and finished these two for a swap on atcsforall.com.  I like Mokey better, because I'm improving in my watercolor technique a bit--Kira was done in a mixture of acrylic, Sharpie, and pen--and isn't as strong, but to be fair she didn't scan well.

I haven't been putting posts to these images, which is probably a shame--I suppose it might be interesting to hear what the artist thinks, how the work came about, et cetera.  Or, it might just sound like self-important drivel!


This is my second watercolor piece, which isn't really watercolor per se, but watercolor PLUS watercolor Prismacolor pencils.  I can't seem to just use the watercolors--I've never been trained with them, and I sort of lack the experience to figure out how to do what.  I do enjoy it, especially darkening up things at the end, adding white highlights with acrylics--that step after you think everything is done, but it's not really.

Would there be any interest in progress shots, maybe a video of me drawing?  I know at least one person out there was interested in drawing vids (I'm looking at you, Coyote)

Ophelia drowning herself like all good pining crazy girls should.
