I’m taking part in a thing! I was debating on which couple to send: the Queen of Hearts with Berwyn or Prince Roran and Maryan. The Queen and Berwyn won because I get to design some fancy formal Wyndan clothing, and their interaction is amusing to me.
I’m also using this as a way to figure out just how I want to ink Berwyn and the Queen’s faces for upcoming pages of Hearts of Roese.
I like that part of an art slump where something clicks and suddenly several pages of your sketchbook are filled with character designs.
Because that’s the part I’m in right now.
I particularly like the idea that I started in the last image of his hat being a bit too big and pushing his ears out. Also, the direction I’m going with the Fire Sprites :3
Chimothy Sweep and Ember are characters created by my grandmother- my sisters and I grew up reading his story, and we are slowly working on a modern adaption.
If anyone wants a Christmas postcard of Chimothy, message me your address and I will snail mail you one until I run out of my leftover postcards!
It is the time if the year where I start thinking about this guy again.

I guess I should mention why the next page is so late- I realized that the thumbnails at the start of the chapter had to be redone because they weren’t working well with later pages in this chapter. With that, several other deadlines coming up, and just plain exhaustion after getting home from work, I haven’t had much time to work on the new thumbnails or draw the last couple of weeks.
The good news is that I’ve been able to get the new thumbnails started during my lunch today, and I’ve already decided that my thumbnails need to be in ink from now on. Ink is forcing me to be a lot clearer as I sketch the scenes out. Something else I’m looking about this redone batch is that I’m pushing myself to experiment with camera angles more and getting some really near panel layouts because of it.
Enjoy the above image of lunchtime drawings, with a peek at the new thumbs in the way back.
It is finally after Thanksgiving, and the Christmas season is fast arriving! This means trees are being decorated, and just what a tree needs is a little felt bird to nest among the rest of the ornaments.
I am selling my bird ornaments over at my storenvy in a set of 5 for $35 or 1 for $8. I even have the option of a custom bird that I don’t already make for $10 each. All of the charms have the option of being an ornament!
And in case the adorable birds aren’t enticing enough, my entire store is 15% off with the code holidaybirdies
Please check out my store, and reblog to spread the word!
Some sketches I drew in the little sketchbook I got from Laika at CTN.
I’m really liking it for quick sketches and stuff, so I’m thinking of making something similar to sell and use.
(edit: I added a picture of the sketchbook)
I can finally look at tumblr again
I basically had to ban myself because of the 4 Korra episodes thing on Friday and no way to watch them while volunteering at CTN, because I know if I had even looked at tumblr for a second everything would have been spoiled horribly.
It was very nice going in fresh, and I’m honestly happier with the wrap up of season two than the wrap up of season one. There were definitely several things that didn’t work for me or were really odd or plothole-ish, but the episodes didn’t leave me angry like most of the season has.
Watching them all at once probably helped as well, because I know that for a few scenes, if i had watched the episode and had to wait a week I would have not enjoyed the finale as much.
Anyways, time to make a dent in my dashboard and then finish recovering from the weekend.
I am at CTNX in the CenterStageGallery with the awesome Eyvind Earle show!
Today was an insane and exhausting day at work, so finding these had arrived when I got home made me super happy! I wasn’t expecting to see them until after the weekend because of CTN.
I can finally force friends to read this comic and get hooked using hard copies :D
Oh hey, lets do a comparison of my new and old portfolio sites.
Top is new, bottom is old.
TALK ABOUT A DIFFERENCE. I’m glad I’m changing this over before CTNX this weekend.
I made the switch from blogspot to wordpress, and I am loving it so far- a lot of the tools available in wordpress are absolutely perfect and what I needed for my portfolio (Jetpack plugin with the tiled galleries and Carousel options? Yes please!). I’m able to customize a lot more (although Twenty Thirteen is a pain with certain aspects, such as the sidebar hanging out with the footer when viewed on an ipad (but I finally fixed that issue).
I still have a few more things to do on the site (rename files and add descriptions for the Carousel/hover viewpoint, find/edit the more recent images I want to put into a few of my categories so I can update those files, mess with resume formatting, and write a new front page blurb. Probably also make new header banner with text already on it, due to weird type issues.)
If you want to glance around before it is at 100%, please poke around and see if you spot any broken spots (I already know about the image in the Long Poses section of Life Drawing). I would appreciate anything you guys catch!
Also, I think the next step with all this CSS website editing I’ve been doing may be to finally make my tumblr page not what it looks like now.
While I wait for the DNS settings to stop being stupid for me, I’ve been prepping my new header and footer images for my portfolio. I like how they look :D
Edit: hahahah, speaking of the devil, the DNS settings stopped being messed up and I can reach my site again!
Pardon while I be cheesy and draw my characters influenced by song lyrics.
I’ve been listening to Bastille’s Bad Blood album all week, and probably 75% of the album is gonna end up on my Hearts of Roese playlist.
Flaws fits really well for the interactions between the Queen of Hearts and a character from much further along in the story (hence the censored head).
So um, yeah.
