Bride of Frankenstein

I did a cute and quick little picture of my favorite bride, the Bride of Frankenstein. I always wondered how she'd look with her hair down. :)

Day of the Dead

I got these totally amazing lights at Target, so I made a cute skeleton listening for his friends in the night.

5 minute cat post

My favorite part of the day is when my cat jumps on the bed and hides under the covers. Here is a 5 minute cat sketch!

Real love is forever

Did I ever mention I'm totally obsessed with The Crow? Here's my own interpretation.

Goat girl

I ran across an unusual amount of articles about Chupacabra today, so I drew a goat girl. Because that makes TOTAL sense.

Mummy!

I was talking about mummies today, so I drew a cute girl mummy. :D

Whip It

I finally watched Whip It. What a cute movie. :) I drew a quick little Roller Girl.

Halloween.

Here is a cute Halloween picture. This is dedicated to Glenn Shadix, who passed away yesterday morning. He is in two of my favorite movies of all time (Beetlejuice and Nightmare Before Christmas), and was by all accounts a wonderful person. Hope you're in a happy place, Mr. Shadix. :)



I have a backlog of things to upload for my previous weeks, but I'm behind because of my new mortal enemy, my back tooth. Now that I'm past the worst of it, it's back to picture-postin'! :D

Iced Chai

My friend Zack and I were talking the other day on twitter about how my next picture should be about our mutual obsession, Starbucks Iced Grande Non-Fat Chai.

These are their stories. (chunk-chunk)

Dr. Sketchy's!

I finally got to go to my very first Dr. Sketchy's! I went to the bmore one at the Windup Space. I hung out with awesome coworkers and an old college mate, and did the first live figure drawing I've done in ten years! So fun! Our model was Katia B. :)

It's just you and me as we travel 'round the world, it's just you and me, Punk Rock girl.

Kinda abstracted Phoenix/Jean Grey

Morning Medusa

It's hard enough to wake myself up in the morning. I can't imagine how long it takes Medusa to wake up each snake.

self portrait two

Got all my hair chopped off, so I did a new self portrait. :)

Poison Ivy..again...

Yet another Poison Ivy sketch. I need to diversify before this becomes a really bad women of gotham fan art blog.

Vampire victim

I think if you woke up and someone had turned you into a vampire, you'd be pretty sad. And possibly really sexy. But I think sad is more likely, heh.

overwhelmed

Tried some quick sketches, none of them were working, got frustrated, drew this.

Harley

Nothing I drew today came out well, so I gave up and drew a pin-up of Harley Quinn. She's like the comfort food of drawing. Even if nothing is going well, I can always draw a cute sketch of Harley.

Ivy

Quick little sketch of my favorite fictional scientist lady, Miss Poison Ivy.

Day of the Dead tiling background

I've been having fun working with how to make repeating patterns as a way to train my brain better into what works for a tiling texture. Here's a Day of the Dead tiling pattern I've made:




It's a little too square for my tastes, so I will make a different one soonish. I'm saving these as .pat files in photoshop, so after I make some more of them, I'll put them all up here for other people to play with. :D

Lady Gaga

I really liked the new Lady Gaga video, so I drew a picture of her in her pretty Crime Scene tape outfit by Brian Lichtenberg.

Quick catwoman! I have now covered the 3 gotham girls in my blog! :)

angel girl

All I got today is an angel girl. Not done though, I will probably do more with the background and the cloud. :)

Page of Cups

I keep wanting to make my own tarot deck, but then I can never decide what style to make one in, so then I just don't. I made a cute quick sketch of a page of cups, which is my card. :D

No hurry or anything.

Aaaand my sketch for this week. With 20 minutes to spare, even. Take that, sinus infection!




Bat Damask

I did a photoshop tutorial here, and made myself a lovely damask pattern with crows, roses, hearts and batwings!




I will probably use it for a background for a webpage or a blog or something. I played around with colors and texture as well:


It was a lot of fun to do - I would definitely like to try making more patterns like this :D

Cheshire kittay :D

Inspired by TotusMel's Alice in Wonderland post, I wanted to try my hand at a cheshire kitty. I might go back and clean this up/spend more than an hour on it so I can print it out and frame it in a cute antique frame or something.

howard

The D.C. goth scene lost someone the other day who was really important to pretty much every person who knew him. It's reminded me a lot of the friend I lost, Howard, who I still miss very much.

Mockery of chalk pastels.

Cute girl on comfy bed - tried going for something that looked kinda chalk pastel lookin' with the photoshop brushes I mentioned in an earlier post.

Werewolves.

I present to you "werewolf using a computer mouse". Yeah I don't know why, either.

Undead girl

For valentine's day, an undead cartoon pin-up.

Monday, February 8, 2010

I drew a little bird (A Junco to be exact.)

Last week didn't go so well, drawingblog wise, so this week I'm going to post two pictures to make up for it. Here's the first for this week!

Sci-Fi. kinda.

I fail so hard at fantasy/sci-fi creatures, but Mass Effect 2 made me want to try. I made an alien..rat...thing. In a robe. A green robe! Whoo. :D

New Tools

Christy showed me this really awesome guy's blog who made a few Photoshop tool presets, so I spent tonight playing with my new tool presets. OMG, totally in love - I'm using the pencil sketching one from now on for all of my basic sketching on my tablet - this is the closest I've ever found to really feeling like a pencil! :D

Here are two really quick sketches I made:

Frustrated:


Witchy girl:




Lastly I played around with the watercolor preset he has. I suck at watercolors, so I found these to be very true to the original medium, heh.
Here's a dust bunny:
