Sunday Sketches -- Illusionals (D)

I recently finished reading the second book written by one of my old college friends (review here), and I thought it was a rollicking ride from start to finish!  Plenty of danger and drama and humor and just enough steampunk to be interesting and effective without being annoying and trendy.  Last week these Sunday Sketches resulted.
All the characters in her books are so vividly described and written that I find they flow pretty easily from my pen, even if they don't always come out just how I pictured them -- but that's on me, not on the author.

(You can see the other Sunday Sketches that Heather's writing has inspired in the past here.)

Commission: Park Meeting (D)

(Ack, August???  Shameful.)

Here's a fun commission I did last week through Artcorgi. I love it when Disney fans single me out over there.

Sunday Sketches -- 30 Rocke-fellas (D)

Wups, sorry, July.

Things have been busy, but it's time for some Sunday Sketches!  After we finished watching Parks and Recreation, it seemed like we should finally see about looking into 30 Rock.  I won't say I didn't like it, but I will say that it took us a few months to watch all seven seasons (compared to P&R's few weeks) and that it took me three months of a few Sundays to finally finish this art (compare to the one day that I spent with P&R).

Looking back I probably didn't need to include ALL of these people, like Angie and Hazel and Criss and Jack's entourage, but I was finally on a roll, so I didn't want to put on the brakes.  This show has a pretty big recurring cast I guess.  Also, apparently it's been so long that I totally forgot Kenneth and Cerie and (even until the last minute) Pete.  *facepalm*

Sleeping Beast (D)

A few years ago I did a sketch that J thought would make a funny little animation. Well, today I finally made her vision a reality by doing my first personal animation in quite a long time (and our first animation post in even longer). It was fun, even if it's pretty simple. Secondary action study FTW!

Here's the original sketch for fun and reference:

Commission: A Little Mermaid (D)

Several weeks ago I was approached with a commission for a proposal.  The lady was a big fan of The Little Mermaid, and her fella knew just what to do about that.  The process was a bit delayed when The Poppy came along, but luckily his timetable was flexible.  He was a delightful client to work with (which can be a rarer thing than you might expect with freelance), and it was fun to do this personalized adaptation.  And really, it was pretty easy to draw them, they look practically like Disney characters as it is.
(The finished version had personal text in the classic Disney/TLM fonts.)

Best of luck to this beautiful couple.
