Week 47 Is A Surprise

This has been in progress since some time last week, but since it was a gift commission I agreed not to post it until the one of the recipients had been given his printed, framed version. Since his wife (my client) gave it to him today, I'm free to post it.

It's my friend/boss Mike as Ernie and his friend Tim as Bert. Fishing. Shenanigans will take place and it's debatable if anything will be caught.

This was a lot of fun!

Week 46 Was A Little Crazy

Last week I participated in a fandom-related even where you spend seven days filling a prompt each day. It can be writing, drawing, or anything else, but since I'm already writing I chose to sketch. Every day. While doing National Novel Writer's Month. Because I am not smart.

I won't post all seven of them, but here's the highlights. The theme of the week was my favorite pair from Attack on Titan, Levi and Hanji.

Prompt: Dream (Day 2)

Prompt: Forever (Day 3 I think)

Prompt: Poison (Day 6)

Prompt: Red (Day 7)

Week 45: Gray

The original plan was to color this, first with pencil and then digitally. And then I decided last minute that I like it the way it is. So Week 45 is done! Back to novel-ing

Week 45: Aged to Perfection

National Novel Writer's Mont is upon us again, and while I will be very distracted trying to bleed 50,000 words out of myself during the month, I do plan to keep up Weekly Art. This is the first year that I've made it this far and I have no intention of giving up now.

Some self-indulgence this week - Shiro Fujimoto from the anime Blue Exorcist. I happen to think he's awesome, and pretty easy on the eyes too. I need to fix a lot of his face and his leg, but I'm just glad to have him fully sketched out for the blog. I actually don't like posting sketches that aren't really identifiable.

Week 44: The Stubborn Girl Part 2

Once again just barely in time, Rose's outfit/color guide sheet.

Rose is actually half Mexican and I recently realized that would probably make her name "Rosa", but she goes by "Rose" just to lessen any bullying/complications with classmates/racist jerks. Though she's just finished high school so I guess the former is no longer relevant.

Her clothes are no baggy as a fashion statement. Her clothes are baggy because living with an abusive step father does a number on your appetite and you don't eat much. Her birth father was awesome, just so we're clear. He's also where she gets her Mexican blood from.

Week 43: The Stubborn Girl

This week was spent working on a re-design for Rose, trying to make her look less plain. She did not cooperate well, especially for the frontal view. I think all has ended well however, so here's her turn sheet at last. I shaped her eyes differently, gave her a heavier set brow, and made her lips larger.

I'm uncertain if I'll do her outfit/color guide next like I did Charlie's, but there's a good chance.

Week 42: Every Girl's Crazy 'Bout a Sharp Dressed Man

Well, maybe not every girl but dang.

I spent a lot of time goofing off that I could have been working on this today so I had to rush the coloring to finish it. I'll go back and fix it up if need be, but after coming so far this year I wasn't about to fail a week just because I'm tired and lazy.
