Took a break from hand cramp inducing drawing to instead poke my fingers with wire. Genius, I know. More charms for a crap ton of pendants!

Today’s #instapic moment is brought to you by the end of summer and my need for a little cheer at my drawing desk. Super quick wild flower arrangement (and some curly mint). Sad to see this season on her way out, but my favorite is just around the corner. 😉

It was late when I finished so here’s yesterday’s #sketchbet 
By the way, these weird bookmark sized sketches are how I recycle scrap drawing paper. 😉

Today was busy so tonight’s #sketchbet was a super fast oversized bookmark sketch. Pencil & white gel pen.

Little something from yesterday’s #sketchbet. Theme was post-apocalyptic so I created a warrior who might exist in a Vampire Hunter D type world with all the magic/medieval/tech/monsters/fallen civilization and a nice helping of anarchy to boot. I will be returning to this. 😉

Haven’t posted in forever so here’s today’s #sketchbet that actually turned out kinda sweet. I was challenged to draw someone’s anthropomorphic fox OC. When filtered through my own non-anime style he ended up turning out rather whimsical. 
Pencil, coffee stain, white gel pen

Saturday night #sneakpeek and #sketchbet !
Something ominous. Watercolors will really bring the magic on this one. 😉

bldhny2002 reblogged your post Today’s #sketchbet Combined Art Nouve… and added:

I LOVE autumn, and I lLOVE art nouveau. Please finish and make available for sale

Awww, well, since you asked so nice. <3 ^_^ I can’t guarantee she’ll be available before the end of the year, but I’ll definitely revisit this piece with color. That said, I do have a new art nouveau print coming out shortly that will feature a black cat, All Hallow’s Eve, and lots of magical witchy goodness. ;)


Here’s a nice little #inprogress shot of a haunted house before I crash. I like to rough my ideas out on a separate piece of paper and transfer with tracing paper. The fuzzy lines are my bare minimum transfer which I lift with a kneaded eraser while laying in the details. By the way, best way to draw a house so it looks haunted? Hang up that ruler. 😉

Today’s #sketchbet 
Combined Art Nouveau and Art Deco. I think this stained glass Autumn Goddess has potential for a new print. 😊

Project #sneakpeek and today’s #sketchbet
It’s never too early for something a little spooky. 😉

Project #sneakpeek (and also my #sketchbet for the day). Yepp, another black cat. Hey, if I have the opportunity to draw two, I’m drawing two. I could probably draw a tarot deck of black cats and not be black-catted out. Hmm…wait…*files that last thought into the Awesome Possibilities Jar*

WIP sneak peek! Dejah Thoris commission involving a pose that gave me hell until I finally got it. Posting this quickly before I have time to find any more stuff wrong with it.

Today&#8217;s #sketchbet challenge was Angel from X-men. Not much time to mess with perfecting a pose or foreshortening but he didn&#8217;t turn out too bad.

It&#8217;s late for me but before I go, here is the generic pretty man face I drew for #sketchbet tonight. 
No likeness in mind, sort of combined a bunch of Hollywood faces and went with it. 😴😴😴 time!
