Cats and Mice and Bats oh my

I have been drawing a lot of cats lately.
I only have one to show but cats were a thing for a few weeks.

Although you can't see it all that well, the gold was done in a gold marker and it's pretty shiny. I couldn't get a picture to show it off but trust me it's shiny and it's awesome.

Also a bat in puffy pants!

Also a presketch cause I like it:

Poor bats, wearing clothes is very hard for you little dudes.

The year of children's books

Starting next month, I have things planned to work on stories! Last year was comics and this year is Children's stories which will hopefully end in at least the Halloween story I will have up on Halloween! Yay! But between then and now, lots of the little things!

Character studies, portfolio updates, maybe even some test pages!
Should be a lot of fun this year!

I will posting a lot of before sketches and studies and all that fun jazz to keep this blog going so it'll probably be updated every other week as this year goes.
I'll probably update links too.

But for the time being has a little character from the first story I am focusing on!
Goliath and the Knight!

I've started using Acrylic Markers lately and those are fun man!

Sketch_Dailies theme today was Kumiho! A nine tailed fox who eats hearts (or livers).

Also cause it's silly to me (and I will probably show more of this stuff)
Planning! Really tiny planning.

I'll be back with more news in the next few weeks!

Been a while AGAIN

Like always I disappear from here time to time.
But I have been drawing.
A lot.

I have joined Inktober this year and am doing so much better than last year even with some lazy feet drawings and such.

Is updating almost everyday with fun inking stuff which is mostly done in nibs and ink!

Here are a few of my characters from the ghost story wooooooo (for Halloween):
Playing with watercolor pencils in this one along with the ink.

This one was fun.

with special guest, Crowley the ball python
The dork who likes to steal the glasses off my face!

I'm not sure when I will be posting again probably not until next month but be assured! I will be working writing some stories next month.
I hope to have a lot of things coming together in next few months so look out for them!

Mice for everything

Sorry it's been a bit...a long bit but I haven't really been on the computer much the last month or 2.

But a few weeks ago I was in a Children's book workshop and it was probably the best idea to flesh out one of my little stories

So here are some of the things I drew. All in pen. All for the same story:

I should be working on more this tuesday since a friend of mine is making mice dolls and I wanna play around with different armor ideas.

Also a possible Christmas card idea:
Also with mice.

Been awhile

I haven't been drawing much "Children book" stuff so I haven't been able to update this in months. I have been updating my art tumblr if you wanna check that out!
And it's just been snowing none stop the last 2 months. It's snowing right now actually. I
am not use to all this snow.

So I have been going back into the story "The Girl in the Drawing." I'm hoping since I made this the year of drawing comics, that there will be a few little things with this story if not the full one planned out. 
Unfinished. But I am still trying to figure out how each character should look. Each character changes slightly for all different reasons.

I've been experimenting with this type of thing using red pencil, markers and inks. It's fun.
I also like to think if this story was switched and the ghosts were little kids again and the kid was the ghost, but I feel like the story wouldn't be for kids anymore. Either way, they would be excited over the fact that their new house is haunted.
I just really like drawing Am and David when they were little kids though. Twinies!

Now here's a WIP of a little painting of a tree interested in the smoke that comes from humans during colder days.

And just because I am rereading some of the Chrestomanci books. Christopher Chant is my favorite characters. I hope when one day that yelling Chrestomanci works, he's the one that comes and I hope he's in one of his most fancy suits.
