The final collection of pastel-goth demon girl pinups that I made in November! Words cannot express how much fun these were to make, and I will one thousand percent end up making more of them I’m sure. As with a lot of what I do, I wanted to be diverse in my demon-girls, so I tried to vary their race, body type and to also include more disability visibility, since that’s something I don’t draw as much as I should. And pastel goth is just the most fun aesthetic to draw, even though I cannot pull it off in real life, like, at all.
Can you believe it’s nearly the end of 2017? Man, what a wild ride.
It’s that time of year again and I wanted to do something different this time around. Hence some slightly less cute Christmas-themed designs, which you can pick up on a variety of goods at my Redbubble Store and give to your more unusual friends and loved ones this holiday season.
And as always, if you want to keep up with my mostly-weekly art posts, as well as occasional sketches and WIP shots, hit up my Tumblr,Instagram, and Twitter!
I completed most of inktober this year, so here’s a roundup of my favourite pieces from the month. I used the Space Travellers prompt list from Simon Fletcher aka dropthedrawing
All the illustrations that I did this month can be found on my Tumblr and Facebook if you’re interested in seeing the rest. It was a fun challenge, and interesting to push outside of my comfort zone with india ink and sci-fi things. I do have a powerful urge to go and fill a sketchbook with dragons and demons and witches and things just to balance myself out now though.
But now it’s time for a new month, and I’m in the mood this November for making pinup art, so there’ll be some off-beat type pinups appearing soon. That and I am as always doing Nanowrimo, which basically means I’m not leaving my house for a month straight. Being an artist is a fun and exciting life, my friends, full of glamour.
Weekly illustrations for the month of May! Three out of four here, because one of them isn’t quite done yet as it’s a cool idea and I want to do more with it, so that’ll be out sometime later this month. I’m trying to push myself more with my weekly illustrations now – trying different techniques, practising with new brushes, trying to learn How The Heck Colour Works.
Next month’s theme is Demons and boy howdy am I excited because that is 110% My Jam.
As I mentioned in March’s Doodle Roundup, for April I’ve been making just one illustration a week, rather than doodling something every day. I wanted the chance to work on more than just individual figures, and to do something a bit more substantial. So here’s April’s four weekly illustrations, all based on the theme of Supervillains. Each one has their own ‘theme’ too, I guess. First was a Psychic-powered villain, next one is Elemental-powered, the third is Technology-powered, and the last is a Physically Strong villain. I’m pretty pleased with all of them, and they’ve been good practice with doing more with my Cintiq. I’m still working out how I like to colour digitally, so that’s a fun adventure.
Next month’s theme is Mermaids, because it’s Mer May again of course, and I’ve got some other cool work coming up for you all later this month, so keep an eye out!
More Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell fanart! These were so much fun to do, I had a blast coming up with them. If you still haven’t read Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, then you should go ahead and do it, because it’s such a wonderful, magical book. There’s a miniseries too, which I own but still haven’t got round to watching – I will eventually! I have a lot of things to watch, okay? – but I hear that’s very good as well.
I’m not sure what my next narrative project will end up being. I’ve read some good books lately, but nothing’s jumped out at me for wanting to make some art for it. I own a lot of books though, so I’m sure I’ll find something!
