Unkissable Cobra Throwback

I was working on the second draft/rewrite for my children's book (The Unkissable Cobra) and it got me in the mood to paint. Fortunately, I had this old sketch from the first pass of the book already color-blocked from a while ago, so I stated messing with it.

I think it came out kind of muddy and for the final book these pages will need a different approach, but it was fun to give the old snake a little love.

Satyrs and Fauns?

Some more doodles from my wind-down drawing time last night. I didn't have a ton of time/energy this time.

A sassy Faun and little Satyr. I went and did some investigating into the differences, and it turns outt hat Satrys were originally stocky little woodfolk with the ears and tail of a donkey. I love stocky folk (dwaaarvvvvvessss) so naturally I had to go that route this time. Also, they're both typically male but ladies are so much more fun to draw with all them chest and pit hairs.

These drawings were so quick and sloppy- and the poses are stiff because of it. I'd like to explore that faun character a little more another time and get something better out of it.

Anyways, here's a happy warrior lady on Valentine's Day....

And a lovable skunk.

Heyyy Tumblr has this thing where you post yourself as a mythological creature this week.  I spent all day doing UI layouts so I needed some brain-soothing doodles. Here's me as a BUNCH of mythological creatures.

If you need help guessing, here they are in left to right order:

1. Dryad 2. Beserker 3. Griffin 4. Anemoi 5. Unicorn 6. Minotaur

Doodled some hunks tonight before bed!

Started out generic but then I drew some characters.

Not entirely sure why my strict B&W images are going grey and brown here, but I'll figure it out later.

Downtime Doodles

I got some very usual down time today since our servers at work borked and there's only so much I can do without access to the client/artist forum. So in between odd jobs and the occasional client e-mail check via phone, I did some quick doodles.

I don't get to doodle much lately because my full-time job (assistant Art Director at a game development company). I've also been working freelance as the head designer for an interactive children's book, which is tons of fun but lots of work too.

Free Time? What is Free time?
