WIPs

Rod of Asclepius.

I thought incorporating a skinned snake with a needle and liquid medicine shaping the traditional symbol would be neat. But oh god all those freakin’ ribs! Once I finish this image I am planning on doing the Caduceus next….so more ribs…yay. (They are a pain to draw out and get the spinning effect to look correct. So very worth it in the end.)

Second image, is of a male figure made of decay and fungi…because he is a fun guy. ;)

Even Bees Dance
Well apparently my solution for not knowing what colors to add to an image is to use ALL the colors!

Studio Work

Just wanted to show another image I am working on. No I am not drinking beer out of that red cup, I keep my pencil shavings in it. It’s like a mini trash can, because I’m too lazy to walk 5 feet. (one day i know i will accidentally drink it)

Here is a TIP: I use an exact-o knife instead of a pencil sharpener for all pencils (both colored and not). It is easier to get a point without constantly breaking the lead.

Oh wow, so I suddenly got several new followers so I thought I would say Hello! and show everyone a clip of the next image to be colored. :)
Thank you everyone who is and has been following me!

Series: de-
Title: DNA

This is the idea of apples and oranges.

Colored pencil and pencil on textured paper. I will be continuing this series for a few more images, let’s see where it goes.

I will try to do bolder colors for the next ones.

Space Dandy
He is a Dandy guy who has already stolen my heart, baby.
This show is so good, I highly recommend watching the English dubbed version. If you are the type to say “but the Japanese original is always better, sob sob” just calm down. I’ve watched both and the English has better jokes in my opinion. So be open to the awesome, baby.

I am trying for a more painterly, bright colored, chunky look for this image. Again I had no preliminary sketch or idea I just went with the flow baby.

Secret of Nimh

I love this movie so much. It was a wonderful story when I was a kid and it became a treasure to me when I became an adult.

The entire image was unpremeditated, which is rather rare for me. I am more comfortable with a preliminary sketch before I start any work.

Slug Pie Stories

Illustrations I did for a new children’s book trilogy. If you got kiddos, know of someone with kiddos, or are a kid at heart (like me) go check out these books!!

Please do not use images without permission

Here are a few sneak peeks of my next images.

Can you guess what they are? :3

Here is a hint: one is nostalgic and one is brand new.

I am done with this image as far as the inking is concerned. Next step is to color it, I plan on developing the penciled in parts with color.

Flayed Faun 
Alliteration always alleviates an artist’s ailments at appointing appellations at art. 
pfft, I’m done and I even titled the image!

Knee joint key chain

A woman in a painting class I teach gave me this beautiful key chain. It is of the femur, patella, fibula and tibia bones and it moves!

I love it so much!
