Hey everyone, so I've been sort of neglectful of this blog. I've mostly been using my tumblr, as a place for art, the updates to this one come after the updates there. Also, for some reason blogger isn't allowing me to add a link right now. So I'm updating a link list here and letting people know that there is some major lag on this blog.

All of my art and more process is being posted on my tumblr pretty consistently, this is the second place I'm now posting.

Sailor Moon fanart

My friends have been posting a lot about all the Sailor Moon reboots that are happening, which make me very happy. Did some various fanart.

Digital work and GP submission

 Some digital practice in color and b/w. I haven't used tones much in a while, so I figured I'd toss some on here. There's another version on my tumblr that is in color as well.

This was my submission to the 2013 Goth Prom, the prompt was "Possession".

Digital posts and Prints

 Final of the "Red" screenprints, they are all finished now, and I hope to get documentation done soon. All of them will be available on etsy. It's a really small run though.

 Cowboy Bebop fanart, mostly of the Swordfish (the ship). Because I've been listening to a lot of Yoko Kanno. Sketch was pencil, inked and colored in Photoshop.
 Digital doodle, similar to some things I did about five years ago. Sketch was pencil, inked and colored in Photoshop.
Fanart for The Hobbit, all digital.

Spacey Little Cowgirl

Fanart for Cowboy Bebop, well the ship mostly. I was a big fan of the show when I was younger, but I really never drew anything for it before now.

Jareth and Ponyo

Two fanart doodles of Ponyo and Jareth (Labyrinth). Been playing around with colors and shapes recently.

Recent Doodles

"Out of the Deep"

These two were when I was doing a bunch of fanart with lighter colors. Michiru and Haruka from Sailor Moon.  Also another Thranduil from The Hobbit.

"Butcher Guard", also fanart from Hellboy II. With colors and without.
I apparently am not fantastic at uploading things on more than one or two places.
There is a more consistent stream of updates on my art tumblr.

 More process for digital stuff.

Legolas - Quick Draw

The majority of the time, even my really loose drawings have basic figure stuff underneath. I like the idea of plain clothes Legolas for some reason. Really though, I just wanted to draw his fancy hair.

Train Process

Process images below cut:

Color Test + Valentines Day

I've been waffling on coloring on this for the last few hours. It was a lot of putting color on, deciding that it looked weird and then taking it off again. Oh well. This is for the new thing, and by new thing, I mean new excuse to draw frilly crap. Except I never like doing it digitally as much as I like penciling.

 Valentine's Day picture for the year. Yep.

My Little Pony: Princess Luna

Still doing some character stuff via My Little Pony fanart. Princess Luna is one of my favorites. Trying different ways of flat coloring still.

My Little Pony

I really enjoy doing fanart of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. So here's Cheeriliee and Big Macintosh.
My cintiq has different color correction than my laptop, and they're both different than the desktop. I'm not sure how this looks for any given person. Anyways, back to it.

Red: Seasons and Process

 I ended up redoing the image for "Summer" (right), and after that promptly realized that then "Spring"(left) was the only one in the horizontal format, it was a little hard to change the formatting on that one, because I did really like it sideways. I'm still probably going to print some of the horizontal ones because it's a nice long composition and that's how it was originally intended to be.

Information about the Red project and image of all illustrations together under the cut:

Summer Wars and Sugar Rush

King Kazma is from the movie "Summer Wars". Been varying between some digital work for prints, and jewelry.

So much pink! Taffyta and Vanellope from the Sugar Rush game in Wreck-it Ralph. 
Less pink version.

Been doing some fanart to loosen up with different drawing styles. Also been drawing Liam stuff, but I figured I hadn't done much fanart recently, because I stopped for a few years. Trying to also streamline digital coloring.

Liam color blocking

Color blocking a doodle of Liam. I don't put him in spaces much, because he's some crazy elf guy, but here you go. One of my favorite things to do is do slight variations of primary colors. Which Liam has a lot of.
