It’s suddenly freezing outside!!! Watercolor practice of old OC’s layering up.
This is done now too! Lots of challenges, and flowers, and overall I’m pretty happy with the outcome. This is going to be the wrap-around cover for the comic I was posting about a little while ago, Recipes for the Dead: Steam Minted Meringue, written by the magnificent and wondrous Vera Greentea!
Aaaand… I really want to draw a fullbody of Veronica’s dress here at some point. Of any of her fancy dresses actually. She has a few.
Whew! Done. This was a lot of trial and error and switching around, and no green this time. Which is sad, but sometimes, no green. That’s life. I’m posting my color sketch too.
This was loads of fun though, I haven’t done a group shot in a long time! This is going on the program book for this year’s Anime USA. Go check them out!!
I forgot to post this! Probably because I still don’t feel very confident about it, I seriously need to work on my coloring, among other things.
This is for alliebirdseed, because she has amazing characters and stories and is generally an amazing person.
Kinixuki draws my babies more than I do omfg ;_;!!! You have no idea how much this brightens my day/week/life in general, thank you so, so much for this. I’m just going to continue staring at this for a while and being stupidly happy for the rest of forever.
… and now line-art, after some shuffling and rearranging!
This image is going to be for a wrap-around cover, so certain characters (mainly the show’s mascot) needed to be on the right. I was a little worried it might flow weird, but I think it’s okay! Now I just have to figure out colors for everything.
Mess, sketch, and line-art for Recipes for the Dead: Steam Minted Meringue!
I feel like I’m drawing a lot of piles of roses lately, this is the third time I’ve invoked that particular space filler. I can’t help it though. They’re all curly and fun. And technically thematic to the issue!
mess and sketch! I hope we get to use this, but I like the comparison of the two anyway.
This has been a week of drawing piles of characters. Stay tuned for flowers and cookies!
Missouri Highway Patrol Captain Ron Johnson is marching with protestors in Fergoson, MO.
After being given control of Ferguson from the Missouri Governor, Johnson has ordered all police to remove their masks and cease their violent tactics. He is protecting the citizens’ right to peaceful protest, and is actively engaging in dialogue with protesting residents.

- DO NOT reblog photos of Mike Brown’s body lying on the street. His family has requested that these photos not be spread around. Please respect their wishes.
Very importantly, stay alert. Read everything you can on the subject. The reports on The New York Times, Al Jazeera, and other news outlets are very limited, especially because the police in Ferguson are going to great lengths to keep reporters out. Seek out what you can online and from first hand sources, if you know anyone in the area. Listen to the stories of those who have been affected by this tragedy and other similar ones. Educate yourself as much as you possibly can so you can help make sure the right people are heard.
