Sketchy heads

November was a busy month. This is what happens when I'm super busy at work and I get a bunch of schedule printouts that keep changing....I draw all over the back of them.

Click on each for a larger image.

Olivia's nest

Click for a much larger image. Did this as a template for a friend's new website. Check it out!

Just in time for fashion week. Actually, I did this one a while ago and completely forgot about it. Here she is, post-cleanup. I'll put it in the queue for clean up and paint!

For Allie

Here's a birthday sketch for my god-daughter. I drew it and Joe did the colors. I think it came out really well. The original sketch is really huge so that she can print it out poster-style and hang it up in her bedroom. Happy birthday, Allie!

Backlog of sketches...

Here's a bunch of sketches and paintings I've been working on but haven't posted:

Poison Ivy....she was the drawergeeks subject a few weeks ago and I'm just now finishing it!

I liked the way this random sketch came out. Hopefully I'll get some color on this soon.

A little mage with her dragon friend. They both like fire.

What a fun week for drawergeeks! I drew one of my (many) favorite scenes from the movie, the part when Dash and Violet learn that they can team their powers up.

Trying out something different....

A quick environment sketch, since I do almost exclusively character drawings. Click for a (much) larger image.

Another WoW sketch

For the same friend. Did this one between playblasts at work with blue color-erase pencils and a ball point pen. I'll probably insert her into the first drawing so that she can pal around with Kel. Click for a much larger image.

first stab at painter....

Not that this is great or anything, but dumbing it down to a .jpg from the original painter file really made it look like crap. It was a fun quick sketch to start learning painter.

For Kel, with color

I think I need to seriously work on my digital painting skills. There's something about this color that I'm not really loving.....maybe too much blue?

For Kel

A friend of mine that I play games with requested a drawing of his main character. Here's the line work so far (the background still needs some work).

More fairy stuff

A relative of mine requested a fairy drawing when I went home for a visit a few weekends ago. Here you are, Valerie!

....Sierra needs some meat on those skinny lil' chicken legs of hers.

Run Olivia Run

Ever since I finished a facebook drawing for my friend Jenn, I've been getting requests for more facebook sketches from various people. Here's one for my friend Olivia, who recently took up running.

The ugly angel

I'm not quite sure where this came from. I was supposed to be drawing angels for drawergeeks, but started drawing bassett hounds instead. This is the result of the two.

Bassett hounds have always greatly amused me. They look like someone took a dog and tried to melt it. And they always look so SAD because of their droopy eyes. I think I got on a bassett drawing kick because I was watching 'The Dog Whisperer' the other night and the show featured a bassett hound.... and it renewed my amused interest.

for Jenn

Did this quick sketch of my friend don't wanna mess with her before she's had her morning caffeine.

Decided to keep going and do the other space girl. Starting to like the way this looks without the line work in there. Might start working like this instead.

Rocket Richelle!

Inserted my friend into this one. She's so adventurous!

Candyland finished

...or, sort of. wanted to make this better, but ran out of time again.

Random Heads

Here's a few random sketches from my sketchbook this week.

Tuesday, March 31, 2009


Inspiration-less today, so I drew a quick sketch of me looking alarmed at my out-of-control hair. Ever since I moved to the rainy Pacific Northwest, my hair has decided it's super curly. I should have known better than to cut it short again.

Candyland Sketch

Sketch with a quick color block, for the next drawergeeks subject! The painting will get better, i promise...

Dragon friends, finished (maybe)

I still have one more day to turn it in for drawergeeks, so I might work on it a bit tomorrow if I have time.

Also, 3 drawings in one day? Utter madness!

Ballerina cat and Pinup girl

The ninja cats needed a better outlet for their energy rather than outbursts of violence. So they took up ballet.

Also, I drew this pinup girl a while ago and just recently found the drawing again. Both of these were drawn between playblasts, hunched over my desk at work.

Dragon friends

Did a dragon sketch super early for the next drawergeeks topic with the hopes that I can finish something nice this time instead of half-assing something the night before like I usually do. Here's the rough sketch.

Ninja Cats!

For drawergeeks! The one on the bottom right is for a larger image!

Newest one for drawergeeks....just a really quick sketch.

Coraline in Theaters!!!!

Coraline is finally in theaters, go check it out if you haven't yet!

I worked a lot on the mouse circus (and most other mouse-related things). It took a while for me to like those little critters after working on it for so long, but I finally find them cute again.

Also, I realized while working on it one day that Michelle is an anagram for mice hell. Coincidence????

My sister still needed to post a picture of herself on facebook, so I sketched this out in a few minutes tonight.

...yes, she was always the cute one out of the 2 of us.
