Color Schemes – Primaries

Just for fun, I did a few quick drawings using various shades and tints of one color. I like the way they came out, so I now inflict them upon youย post them for you to enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€

I may yet do the secondary colors too, among other things.


 

As fair warning, I will be posting only sporadically for a while coming up. I’m working on a big move at the moment, my brothers will be visiting in a few days, and then I’ll be actually making that big move across the country, where it may be a week or two before my tablet/computer get to me. ย If I vanish, I didn’t die, I just don’ t have time and/or my tools handy. No worries, I’ll be back ๐Ÿ™‚

Bedtime wear: Oh yeah, I’m a picture of class and sophistication at night, let me tell you. That giant cat/internet-joke T-shirt and the Iron Man shorts… try to contain yourselves, folks ๐Ÿ˜€

Work: I’m in process of going back to school, so my ‘work’ clothes are just whatever I happen to be wearing that day for now. Making shiny artwork is basically my job right now.

Dance: I like to wear swishy skirts when I dance because they twirl so nicely and it just makes the dance feel that much more epic.

Formal: I think I clean up ok ๐Ÿ™‚

Palette Meme โ€“ Wolverine

More Memetastical goodness ๐Ÿ˜€

This time, it’s Wolverine feelin’ pretty in Palette#5.

This one was a little tough because the colors provided are all fairly low contrast, but I think he came out alright anyways.

Still accepting suggestions and requests for this meme, and still accepting commissions ๐Ÿ˜€

Stay tuned for more goodies ๐Ÿ˜€

 

**FAIL, I keep forgetting this part :/ – Pose reference: here. **

Palette Meme โ€“ Angel and Collins – RENT

Ah…. these two are so damned adorable, I just can’t stand it :3

Angel---rent--palette-3

 

Presenting: Angelย Dumott Schunard and Tom Collins in palette #3. โค โค โค
(Here’s theย RENT wiki, for the uninitiated)

These two… they are the heart of RENT for me. I enjoy Mimi and Roger. I find Joann and Maureen interesting. ย Mark is… there.

But these two just moved me so much. There was a really palpable tenderness between them, this genuine playful affection. I could watch them interact for hours. They are both living on borrowed time and they just seem to make so much of what they have.

I bawled like a baby when Angel died, and several dozen viewings later, I STILL do, every single time.

Now, if you’ll all excuse me, I need to go cry over “Will I Lose My Dignity” for a while and go to bed. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

— Oopsy! I almost forgot to link to the original meme! Here ya go ๐Ÿ˜€

Palette Meme โ€“ Punk Storm

More memetastic goodness ๐Ÿ˜€

I was still feeling creatively listless last night, so I did up one more character – this time in palette 13.


 

I do love me some Punk!Storm…

storm--palette-meme-13

I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to draw Storm, partly because she’s one of my favorite X-men characters (up there with Wolverine and Gambit). But it’s too easy to draw her floating around looking majestic, because she ALWAYS looks like that.

I wanted to draw Punk Storm, because the idea of this stoic, reserved weather goddess suddenly sporting a mohawk, leather pants, and gauged ears is just too awesome. I like to think it’s her ‘rebellious college kid’ phase or something.
The only problem is that 80’s punk looks a bit… well 80’s. ย Storm wears it reasonably well, but it looks kind of ridiculous, so I gave her a little bit of a modern update. Lose the spikes, lose the collar, graphic t-s and leather pants.

I ALMOST gave her tattoos, but decided against it, to keep the image from getting too muddy.


 

More shinies will be coming soon, though I’m not sure if it will be a historical lady, and elemental lady, or another meme. We’ll see how my creative juices are flowing ๐Ÿ™‚

**Well I fail at spelling today. Massive typo now fixed**

Palette Meme – Mako Mori

This meme has been going around Tumblr lately, and since I had major creative laziness (aka artblock) tonight, I figured now was a good time to play with it ๐Ÿ™‚

I just realized this evening that I haven’t ever drawn Mako. This is a travesty that I have now finally corrected ๐Ÿ˜€
mako-palette-meme-1

This is done in palette #1. Using ONLY the color swatches provided was pretty challenging, but it was fun and a refreshing challenge ๐Ÿ™‚

I may do a few more if I can’t get my brain to behave itself. We shall see ๐Ÿ˜€

Accepting Suggestions – Historical Ladies

So, since I’ve had a lot of fun drawing the last couple of Cool Chicks from History prompts, I’m open to suggestions from the rest of the interwebs for more such ladies ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a bad-ass lady from history you’d like to see get the attention she deserves? Know of someone far too awesome to go un-drawn?
Send me a name ย and a short blurb about why your lady of choice deserves to be drawn, using the form below. If you know of useful information/resources outside of a basic wiki article, kindly provide or link those as well ๐Ÿ˜€ I don’t have a lot of time to do any sort of intensive research, but I’ll incorporate what details I can ๐Ÿ™‚
If I choose your suggestion, I’ll credit you for it in that drawing’s post ๐Ÿ™‚

Previously drawn ladies can be found here and here.

 

 

Draw a Bird Day

I was debating what to draw for Draw a Bird Day, and I almostย decided to drawย a humming bird, but when I stumbled across this falcon who clearly feels absolutely fabulous, well…. I knew I’d found my bird.

Falcon feels pretty, oh so pretty! Falcon feels pretty, and witty, and FABULOUS!

Seriously, look at that original photo and tell me that’s not exactly what that bird is thinking.
