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.


Dragon in the Rough

More character sketchings. The little group below is maybe a Selkie trying to protect a trio of water nymphs...or maybe they're mermaids; I haven't decided yet. Need to fix the Selkie tail; I haven't drawn a seal in a long while (hmm...not since high school I think) and didn't have a reference when I was sketching these, obviously -- ha. And another dragon attempt. Just keeping busy between other things for work.


More Sketchings: Fearful Fairies

Here are a couple of characters from "Some of My Favorite Things": Fairies and Fairy Tales. The rough sketches are part of an illustration that I've been working on for the past week, in-between other things (as usual). However, there's a Monday deadline for this particular little project so I'll be posting more stuff from this...eventually. :)


Quirky Chameleon

A different kind of character sketch, one from a series that I'm developing. I'll post the color version once I've had a chance to finish it. I seem to be surprisingly busy this week. Probably a good thing. :)

Tomorrow will be a focused day of drawing. The weather is supposed to be a bit stormy which is when I usually keep the computer shut off, and I have enough projects going on that will keep me sharpening my pencils at the drawing board. Don't like those power surges from lightening strikes, although I love a good and noisy thunderstorm. The nearby mountains make the thunder seem even louder here than in Texas, although I miss watching the rolling clouds approaching -- too many trees here crowd the sky. But I do like listening to them whisper when the wind blows, and the shade is definitely appreciated from the hot summer sun. Interesting creatures hide there, too; I sometimes see them on my daily walks. I'll have to post a few of the sketches that I've done of day.


IF: Hollow

I'd hoped to color the above sketch that I did for this week's IF "Hollow", but unfortunately work has kept me too busy to do that. However, I plan on getting back to it as soon as I have some free time again. :)
