Three Ladies and Mister Carlyle (D)

I really need to get J in here to post some of her Greatest Showman arts, they are really marvelous.  But in the meantime, here's a series of three ladies in fabulous costumes and varying moods, followed by a handsome fellow in a tuxedo.
Never, never!
This Is She! 

Breathtaking View
 I was having so much trouble with this one that I almost gave up completely pretty early on but I'm glad I stuck it out.
Sketch version 2 (version 1 will never see the light of day).  Even relying heavily on ref I find his face very challenging to get right.

Our Hands Our Tied (D)

I hope you're not tired of my TGS arts, because, well, even if you are... I'm not done yet.  This looks... almost exactly how I pictured it in my head.

I Wasn't Born This Morning (D)

I've been working on this for a few days experimenting with a new emulation style for an upcoming commission prospect. Does it happen to remind you of any well-known contemporary movie artist's style? 

I relied pretty heavily on ref but the real test was the painting look and feel (this article was really useful).
Sketch version before color or effects were applied:
 And the other side of The Other Side, because everyone knows this guy is the real star of that scene:

A Million (D)

The obsession continues.  I really need to get J in here to post hers too, they are amazing!
I enlisted Instagram to help make my work in progress version a little more dynamic and they were really helpful!  For comparison's sake here's the sketch:

Sunday Sketches (In Color!) -- Dumbo and TQM (D)

We properly introduced the kids to Dumbo this weekend.  So much appeal in this character design and animation, it's just amazing.

Barnum (D)

Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for...

You Can't Stop It (D)

Last night I finished the last 20 minutes of Hairspray Live! on the old DVR. What, doesn't it take you over a year to watch a televised version of one of your favorite musicals?

Here are some of the results of my Christmas commissions sale:

For Taylor
For Maci
For Katie

For Nick

For Steve
Also for Steve!
For Lisa
Thanks, everyone!  I had a lot of work to do there at the end of the year but it was fun to do a variety of styles and subjects, and I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever drawn Amy Winehouse or the inside of a 747 cockpit.
