My Work in Progress

A sketchblog where I post a few of my scribbles from a variety of works-in-progress, usually from my rather random personal creativity outside of the daily grind. I occasionally, but not always, post the final artwork.


Happy Birthday, Little Sister!

A quick coloring job in PS (about an hour) of a sketch that I originally pencilled in the card I sent my sister for her birthday. The sketch was inspired by a photo of her wearing one of her favorite costumes: my sister does the RenFair thing and this particular costume is based on the ballgown from the movie, Labyrinth, a gift a couple of years ago from her loving hubby (who also sewed it).
I posted the coloring progress in Photoshop, since this blog of mine is my "work in progress" after all. :)


Fey Fragments

Bits and pieces of sketches in addition to those I'll be working on over the next couple of months as I continue to whip my portfolio into shape. Some fever dreams I had this past week have been definite inspiration, heh.

I always forget how the flu keeps me exhausted for days, even weeks after I "feel better". Still have a bit of a cough and congestion.

Did squeeze in some writing over the weekend, but I'm not yet back on regular schedule for that. Disappointing. I'm surprised about how much I think about some of my characters every day, though; and keep up with the world building. On the plus side, it helps that I can sketch out and visualize specific areas and scenarios in my notebooks for the various bits I have ongoing. Kind of a bit of storyboarding with a slight nod to graphic novel pacing. Not only does it help me stay on track, but it makes me curious enough to keep exploring. Can't wait to finally read it all when I'm finally done. :)
