Basically, what I’ve learned is that you can be an author and an artist, but you can’t be productive at both at the same time. -_-
I’ve been focusing a lot more on writing than on drawing as of late, and as a result, my drawing output has plummeted. So, not much to show here. When I am drawing, though, I’m working on altering my style a bit. It’s too…cute for me right now. So I’m making some adjustments, most of which have been Joe Sutphin-inspired. (If you haven’t seen Joe’s art, you haven’t lived. Check out his Instagram here!)
Some watercolor (and Sharpie) doodles. Watercolor is both frustrating and relaxing to work with. It’s weird. xD
A weirdly satisfying gouache painting. It started out as one giant pink, fluffy cloud, then turned into a sand dune after I discovered I can’t paint clouds. (As you can see, however, I did find enough patience later to paint a couple small, purple clouds.)
A couple expression memes, all featuring OCs. In the first one, from left to right and top to bottom: Walnut Jack, Firenze, Cortez, Cathal, Niamh, Síofra, and Aífe. In the second one, from top to bottom: Lysander, Domhnall, and Diabhal.
The Breath of Eíre, a painting featuring Celta’s first druid. Who doesn’t have a name. *needs to get on that*
Jackson Mali, a new charrie I randomly came up with a while ago. I’m really happy with how the style of the portrait turned out. It kind of has a comic book feel to it.
*booming voice that echoes throughout Cavern Hole* CONSTANCE BADGERMUM. You can’t draw this awesome badger lady and not feel a little scared. xD
An illustration from the second(?) book of Celta, featuring a *cough* very wounded Eoin. I came up with the idea for this picture after listening to “Wild Heart” by Daughtry.
A birthday present for a friend, featuring her character, Damien. He’s a cutie. ^^
Sketches of Lokson, inspired by The Archer’s Cup. Lokson is one of my new favorites now. He’s just so sweet and funny and talented and noble and AGH. I love him. He kinda reminds me of Crispin from The Mistmantle Chronicles.
And of course, a drawing of Lokson wouldn’t be complete without a drawing of Amber! 😀 I love her, too. Almost as much.
And now for the crowning jewel: an extremely frightening portrait of Helmer the Black. Ain’t he pretty? xD
