An elf monk I created for DnD this week. I wanted to play with the typical proportions and aesthetic of elves.
As kids, my brothers and I loved to rent Unico in the Island of Magic and one of my favorite characters was big brother Toby who gains magical powers to serve a crazy evil puppet. And like he had to turn everyone (animals too) into magical puppets too.
This is Toby, but a girl Toby.
This was just a raw digital painting – no pencil/paper like I usually do. It’s really hard to get started, but once I get painting it’s really fun. I think I am just much more dexterous with a pencil so I can get my ideas down much more quickly and in greater detail. Whereas with the tablet/stylus I feel like I fumble a little bit more to get the sketch down. I think it’s mostly to do with the free rotation of the paper – it’s not as easy to do in Photoshop.
Aimless sketching with a ballpoint pen while our family played Cranium over the holidays. Utter silliness, surely!
My old friend John posts pictures from his life on his tumblr. One of his pictures inspired a quick drawing this morning.
I gather the dog is called Rosy.
Yesterday I felt I needed extra protection so I wore the biggest t-shirt in our apartment, fuzzy pajama pants, my nice plaid Converse blazer, my infinity scarf, sunglasses and the larges knit hat in the world which I bought from Thailand because I have a big head and big hair.
Clothes are armor. I am a clothie?
Or maybe she’s a Jedi. Just sketching last night to help myself think about a website project.
