Don't trust me with your children or pets

Last day of November and I kill my fish.
Go me.

Chickens

Sorry for the radio silence (inb4 no one actually reads my blog anymore) it's been a busy week with dress rehearsals and last-minute disasters. And Thanksgiving.

I am currently working on a moderately large piece for an art trade due at the end of the month. And yet all I can think of or draw is chickens. I want to raise chickens you guys, you don't even know.

But here, have some gap-toothed dudes each with a chicken on their head.


This was really hard to explain to on-lookers.

Gladys n' Tessa De Los Muertos

Gladys and Tessa with their face-paint on for Day of the Dead in this Tegaki-E thread.


Just a sketch I thought was worth cleaning up and sharing.
This was really fun to draw, thank you Di for making such a cool thread!

Comic Journal, RP funtimes and Crack

A wild Tegaki-E Dump appeared! It used random!
It's super effective!

Comic Journal

Pretty much the most serendipitous thing that's ever happened to me. Pretty much.

Recently I acquired 100 stalkers—I mean watchers—on Tegaki. :B

This is really stupid, and probably won't be funny to most of you, but it's a parody of this Kate Beaton comic. Go read the comic, it's actually funny, not just pretend funny.

Sir Tiger With Fur Slicked Back

Gouache on Arches Paper
6"x8"
Approx 10 hours or less

This is probably the most fun commission I've done so far!
Commission Policy Here.
Open Commission Slots Here.

When I showed Jacob (the client) the color and value comp this is what he said:
"Imagine a three year old.
Now imagine that this three year old has just been given a giant robot unicorn that shoots lasers and candy.
I am doing that same happy dance over Sir Tiger.
Take it away Maestro! I am ecstatic about the way it is going!"

;3; That is the nicest thing for any artist to hear, seriously. There is no better way to ensure that I'll do my best and try my hardest.
So much so, that I entirely re-painted the arm on the left because the underdrawing was bad and left the painting looking goofy. And this is re-activating paint so it was no small task! But I'm glad I did it. (Post Secret: I would have done this anyway. But I really wanted to do my best.)

And I just got the best idea for the next painting in this series. (There's three, it's gotta be a series now) "Monocle Jack"—a Kangaroo... with a monocle.
