He Doesn't Look Happy

My husband, from a photo I took on vacation:

He sure doesn't like to have his photo taken.

Lobster Overlord

Green Apple Pie #3

Hey, remember that four-panel comic I've been procrastinating on for months now? Well I finally buckled down and got it finished.

Click on the image to go to the bigger version on my deviantArt page (you may need to full-view it on there):

I'm very pleased with how it turned out. It's no Copper or anything, but if I could pull one of these out of my rear end once a week, I'd be closer to a published comics collection than I am now. :P

Oh well. Back to the drawing table!

Inspiration Monday

This week's inspiration is Scribbles. It's a fun challenge to scribble down a squiggle and see what you can turn it into.

I did these on paper first, and inked them digitally for clarity. My scans were pretty terrible.

Scribble 1:

turned into a woman with long hair:

While scribble 2:

ended up a flamingo:

I'd have done more, but I ran out of bus route.

Another girl off the bus. This one I had to memorize and sketch out in PS at home.

Brush Pen

Another woman I sketched on the bus. I did this one without an underlying pencil sketch.

Her hair could be better, but I think I got the face down pretty well.

Spring Ladies

The weather's been warming up, but I've been burning out a bit. Concentrating on comics has made me a little less keen on sketching in general. The long weekend may have had something to do with that too. Four days off, and I didn't get anything done.

Still, there's always something hanging around I haven't scanned in yet. Here's a couple girls from late March:

Last week wasn't the best week I've ever had, either. But the weather is finally warming up (barring all the snow falling in the past week) and hopefully I'll feel more like wandering around town with my sketchbook when it's dry enough to bike.

Inspiration Monday

Okay, it's not really an official Inspiration Monday, but I'll post an idea up anyway: a goblin wedding.

I drew a flirtatious Mother of the Goblin Bride for the "A Face Only a Mother Could Love" Drawing Jam:

It's surprisingly difficult to draw ugly ladies without making them look like men in drag. I may do a few more wedding guests and whatnot later in the week.

12 Faces

Today I've dug out a bunch of unfinished digital paintings and am working on trying to get a few of them closer to completion. Too many things to finish, too much work to finish them all... :P

In the meantime, here's 12 female faces. I thought I'd do the "100 faces" meme a few months ago to help me think about how people's faces differ.

These were done from various random photos I've come across since then. Some I've changed substantially from the photo, some I haven't. I plan to do 50 female and 50 male. It might be interesting...

I feel bad for neglecting the blargh this week. But not too bad, because it hasn't been a good week for me. I HAVE been filling the sketchbook, I just haven't bothered to scan and clean up. I should have a few more things to post later in the week, but in the meantime, allow me to wallow in my perfectly normal and healthy rabbit obsession.

The Easter Bunny:

Plus, I promised to post a link to my old comic if I continued to update it, and five updates is me doing well so far. It's not a great comic, but I never really intended it to be -- in fact, I intended it to be a throwaway mini-comic, which ended up turning into a year's worth of weekly comic pages. Anyway, if anyone's interested, it's here. It's the story of three anthropomorphic rabbits and their troubles in a new home.

And with that, I'm off to sleep.
