Lots' o Art

I kinda wanted to experiment with text a bit, and I missed doing funny strips.
Anyway, this was pretty quickly drawn out, hah so it's a little sketchy.

Corel painterX.
Just trying out some new things \:

hah It's interesting trying to make a human expression work on an animal/dinosaur/whatever. This was just a sketch for a design of website mascot. I might post more about it when it's all done, but since this was done really early on in the process I figured I'd post it.  

Oh! And this is my cat Sasha. ---v--- She's huge and has laser eyes. :I

A tiny acrylic painting of my sisters cat Bubba sleeping c:

Just messing with acrylics on some left over illustration board. 

Now I'm off to get some reference pictures! 

It's FINALLY started to rain here again, so that means there will be some really beautiful cloud formations out there!  >:D
I love the way things look after it rains, the colors seem so much more vibrant.

Fun with Gouache

I bought some Gouache a few days ago and it's actually quite a fun medium. The only thing I'm not sold on is the fact that since it can always be re-wet, once it dries you have to keep it away from any liquids, and I'm pretty accident prone so that worries me hah... :1

The two cat's are my sister's, they're brothers. (:
And the boat I painted from a cool reference I found. I'd really like to start painting outside but recently Florida has been SO HOT... I can hardly even stand being outside for an hour.

Random Updates

I'm going to start a comic called "No Company,"  to help me continually work on backgrounds, everyday objects, composition, you know the works.

I made a pretty quick "cover" for it.

Although I want to make a comic about everyday occurrences, for the time being that's just going to stay in my sketchbook. \:

Oh, here's some digital dump-age for you. I wanted to sketch some folks' characters last week so I asked around and here are a few. The sketch itself took maybe about an hour, and the coloring maybe 30 min. So they're pretty quick.

The last character is my friend Laura Wolfe's (who is awesomeee) She's writing a book on her character, aannd I totally want to read it. :1
