Why you so mean?!

It’s Marceline from Adventure Time! I’ve been wanting to do my own rendition of the characters from this series for a while now.

If you haven’t seen Adventure Time, you’re missing out. Easily one of the most inventive and best-looking animated shows since the heyday of animation in the 90s, imo.

Another little commission, this time of a gryphon. It took a while to find a decent pose for him – I’ve never drawn a gryphon before so it’s always a challenge with a new bodytype – AND trying to keep the critter recognizeable.

He’s also a bit dark and extra digital-looking, what with the multiply and overlay layers, but eh. I don’t mind too much. :3

Orynx the Gryphon

And this piece came to me while sketching the serious gryphon. I had to finish it! Corgi gryphon!

Stumpy Legs!

I’ve been working on several commissions lately, and one of the girls sent me an adorable little watercolor and malaria from Japan!

Ok, it’s just a postcard, but it’s the thought/hilarity that counts! So sweet! XD

Did this as a warm-up for a day of painting! :3

It’s Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys, which I ADORED.
If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it – it’s crass and crude and ridiculous – just how I like ’em! XD

Oh! And the title comes from this scene: Click me!


Lud-in-the-MistLud-in-the-Mist by Hope Mirrlees

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Enticed by the promises of a great many favorite writers, I took up Lud-In-The-Mist expecting a change in what female fantasy could be.

The name, the time, the author’s story, all attracted me. Despite this, i couldn’t manage to lose myself in it.

Essentially, for me, it didn’t hold up.

I found the characters shrill and predictable, the bewildered goodies were good, and the baddies just as you found them.

As I read, I had a sense that I was waiting for the literary ah-ha to happen – the plot is thick as molasses, even the interesting characters are quickly stunted or oversimplified (I’m looking at you, Endymion Leer – such a great name, sigh!).

The whole plot and execution felt like a great dance around saying what the authoress wanted to say – I imagine this was quite effective in 1925, but I live in the 21st century, and I’ve seen LOST.

The premise is still interesting – a town on the border to the realm of Faerie, and the invariable cultural crossover that seeps in – and the prose was fittingly British and pretty, but Lud’ left me with little to go on… and the slightly irked feeling of having missed the boat.

this is him. did this as a lunch sketch in an hour.

*squeals*

we had a slow day at work a few days ago, and i had the sudden urge to do portraits of some of the main characters from The Tudors. we just started the second season and it’s rife with steamy hot-people sex scenes and 16th century intrigues and the Protestant Reformation! awesome. it’s not award winning by any means, but it’s fun.

both of these were about 45 mins each.

Natalie Dormer plays Anne Boleyn, and she has a strange cat-like face.


And who can say no to Sam Neill as the manipulative scheming cardinal!
