So I’m lucky enough, now, to be doing another commission for a friend of mine that I’ve worked with many times before (if any of you have seen my D&D illustrations from back when I was actively gaming, some of the characters in those illustrations were hers).
She helped me out last year when I didn’t have enough money to purchase art supplies, and in return, I’m doing some promotional illustration work for a new book series she’s working on, “Zoey Jane Files.” They’re spy/action stories, which is a LOT different from my own personal work/projects, so its fun to explore something that’s so out of the box for me.
Above are some of the thumbnails I did. She liked the bottom one and the top left one the best, so I’ll be combining those two for the final illustration. The idea is to use the piece to promote the books, once it gets to be time for that :)
And some design work for the main characters, based off her own illustrations of them:
Hoping to get more work on this done today, as I feel motivated about it (and will hopefully also remember to scan the more detailed thumbnail of the design idea she liked).

Posted this in-progress on Tumblr this Samhain (Halloween), and ended up finishing it up afterwards.
Sally and the Little Witch from “The Nightmare Before Christmas.” So much love for that movie, especially Sally herself.

Because sea turtles are awesome, and so are mermaids, so why not?

Recent commission for the ever-fantastic Xenia Joy :) Her husband’s pets, Hero and Idzik, as a gift for his birthday a while back.

Not sure if I’m going to finish this up or not, so here it is just in case.
Plus, figured I should post it before the new season starts, all things considered.

Something spiritual (despite the fact that she looks like one of my old DnD characters).

So I posted this sketch over on Tumblr after Supernatural’s “Goodbye Stranger,”as art therapy, and my llove and a friend of mine liked it so much that their flailing inspired me to finish it. Pose inspired by the way Cas and Dean held on to each other in the “I need you” scene. And you can thank my llove for Dean’s plaid pants.

Another donation repayment piece, for someone who was way too kind and insisted I not draw anything for them. So I went and stalked their gallery and came up with this anyway :)
