Short version: I present to you, the feeling of being swept away by music.
The longer version is: this is what I feel when I hear certain music, regardless of where I am or what I’m doing. It picks me up and carries me away, and I’m usually dancing up a storm inside my head.
(In this case, it’s me sitting quietly in the cafeteria at work, doing my best to just eat in peace, rather than put on a show.)
In case it was a mystery to anyone: this is one reason I love dancing so much. Dance lets me give some form to this feeling and ride that high for real. (Who needs drugs when I can farm my own endorphins with some good music and a decent floor? :D)
Good music and good dancing… nothing on earth quite like it.
This one wasn’t so much planned as just kind of shoved its way out of my skull onto the page and then decided when it was done.
Take from it whatever you like (other than the obvious – don’t steal my art :p), but this one was cathartic for me.
Answering the age-old question (from all the way back in 2007) of what Giselle from Enchanted would look like as a Gargoyle. The answer is… kind of adorable, actually.
For now, this is more of a character study, just working out the basic look of everything, but at some point, I do plan to do a full-body illustration of this little lady (and possibly her lawyer-love, if I have time).
The top left is obviously a head-shot, the top right is the dress design, adjusted for a gargoyle (need to do a back view too, but I’m out of time for tonight). The bottom left is a bracelet that goes over her bicep (like Demona from the original show) and the bottom right is Giselle petting Pip. In other news, hands are hard to draw.
As was the case the LAST time I posted something, my day-job is eating my brain, since I’m running a two-person shop alone until next month, so no guarantees that I’ll be able to post regularly for a while yet. (I know, I know, I’m sorry!) BUT at least after that things should calm down and become much more manageable again. (Ideally that’ll translate to more art going up, but we’ll just have to see what happens.)
If you have thoughts, please share them! I love getting feedback, even if it’s (constructive) criticism.
Another prompt that I had fun with and couldn’t pick just one.
I’m quite happy with how these ladies’ expressions turned out. They feel more dynamic than some of my previous attempts at intense facial expressions, and this pleases the chibi artist.
A stalwart otter, and true, sworn to the Order of the Wave and loyal to its service. (Because there simply aren’t enough otter warriors out there yet.)
Sometimes, we just like to be alone with our thoughts. Even our ugly ones.
The waiting is always the hardest part.
Just your average girl, riding a dandelion fluff to a tiny picnic in a meadow. Nothing to see here.
(I’m very pleased with the perspective on this one. Definitely going to go back and give this some TLC and color later)
One my favorite traditionally-inked/markered drawings I have ever done. I’m super proud of her design and the line-work on this one. I may revisit it in photoshop at some point and do a digitally rendered version, but this one will always have a special place in my artsy li’l heart 🙂
