I was just gonna slap some flat color on this guy, but I’ve been so enamored with the creative lighting kisskicker uses in her paintings, I NEEDED to try it. Got a little impatient at times, so I’m not thrilled with it… but it was a learning experience. Go check out kisskicker’s art!
This is Spark'lore. He’s the same species as Noc'lore, just a different body type.
My creature design for this months Autodesk Sketchbook Hero challenge actually won and I’m flipping my shit! o_o I have tremendous respect for Terryl Whitlach’s knowledge of anatomy and attention to detail in her work. So this means a great deal to me:
Beautiful drawing and unusual blend of serpent and sloth–this is an exotic, attractive pet that would appeal to both reptile fans and those who adore furry mammals. It’s calm, serene attitude implies a gentle, loving pet. -Terryl Whitlach
Easter’s coming up again, so please… give your children a rabbit that will last as long as their attention span. If you don’t want to give them chocolate or candy, consider a plush. And if your kid really really REALLY wants a real rabbit, wait till the seasonal hype dies down, and if they still want one, adopt from a shelter.
#TBT to when I printed everything in house! Found this perfectly good Whelps print while cleaning the studio today. Jazzed to see that the Epson ink held up as promised. After 10 years it still looks new. :D
Since the last bits from bags of pre-ground coffee often make for a very stale brew, I’d been saving them up for a future project, and finally had some time to use them on a small practice doodle last Friday.

Another year has blown by! Thank you, to all of my new followers and those who have stuck with me through the years, for your support! Seriously… I love you guys!
Why Quetzalcoatl? Because 2012 is really the only year that I’ll get away with making a winged snake ornament. XD I hope you enjoy his scaly little divine presence and feed him lots of paper babies. He’s only a little serpent God, after all.
Manticore I saw other artists posting daily monster sketches. I’m not sure why, but it’s an excuse to share the doodles I’ve been hording in my sketchbook. So here! This one was done today in the doctor’s office waiting room. Older stuff is coming up. :3
Thank you all for being the amazing supportive people you are for another whole year! <3
I’m afraid I ran out of time this year to devote to my annual downloadable ornament, so I had to dig through my sketchbook for an older unused design. Okay, so it isn’t a dragon, but it COULD be if you squint! OH LOOK, four legs! *backs out slowly*
Previous Year’s Paper Ornaments:
Chupacabra Running out of things in my current sketchbook that I’m comfortable sharing, so I cracked open one from college. Probably shared this before, but since I can’t remember where, it’s going on Tumblr. ^^
