A Nemo/Cleo bonding session happening over hair braiding. Because doing hair and giving makeovers is how Cleo bonds with everyone. I think she’s probably very pleased with having a new person to work on, because you can only do this to Jonah so many times over the years before it gets boring. :3
I want to draw these two being besties all the time <3

Three mythological ladies! Artist proof commissions from Perna Studios’ Classic Mythology II set. I was so happy to work on all three of them. Sekhmet is Egyptian, the goddess of war and plague (among other things, some benign… but one of her monikers is “Lady of Slaughter”, which is just so metal); Sedna is Inuit, the mistress of marine life, from whose severed fingers were born the animals of the sea; Macha is Celtic (specifically Irish), the queenly aspect of the Morrigan triple goddess who represents (at turns) war, strife, and sovereignty. I dig most mythology as a general rule, but all of these goddesses are among my all-time favorites, so I was thrilled to get a chance to draw them.

I tried to keep clothing and jewelry detail as close to historically-supported as I could (yes Sekhmet’s shawl I know, no nudity was a rule, some artistic license is inevitable), and the research led me to some (I thought) surprising details: did you know ancient Irish women dyed their nails red? I didn’t. And I thought I knew plenty of various and sundry details about them. Go figure.

All of these are trading card size, Micron pens, Copics, gel pen. I think most of you know the drill by now. :)

Phew! Finally back from all that traveling, which was AMAZING. I haven&#8217;t had a trip that was long enough to be truly fun in ages, and I got to see some fantastic landscape that I&#8217;ve never been to before. Awesome time. But even while I&#8217;m out in the world I can&#8217;t not draw, even if it&#8217;s only for like 10-15 minutes at a time. As a result, this took way more time than it was worth, but it&#8217;s just a first-time character plop so I can&#8217;t feel too broken up about it.
So I should probably mention at least a little who this lady is; she&#8217;s Cleo, and she&#8217;s an adorable friend of Jonah&#8217;s (and now of Nemo&#8217;s by extension, since she was kind of&#8230; absorbed into his friend group. This is not a problem for her, though). Cleo&#8217;s a weretarantula, so in her other forms she can play multiple musical instruments at a time. I&#8217;m trying to figure out how to swing this in a picture so it doesn&#8217;t look impossibly creepy, even though she&#8217;s very nonthreatening. I much prefer drawing all the animal folks in their human forms generally anyway, because logistics. &gt;_&gt;

Road triiiiip

Alan and I are off on a family vacation for the next couple of weeks- we are driving! It’s a 2000 mile drive just one way! Because we’re old-fashioned that way, I guess. (Planes are neither of our favorite.) But really, I’ve always wanted to do a road trip this extensive, so it’s win-win. Wish us luck! :D

0palfaerie asked: You met my fiance at portcon and he asked you to draw the Bubbles and Octi for me and I am so so thankful for you drawing it. It honestly made my day so much better when he told me, I couldn't stop crying. Your art work is seriously so so amazing. Thank you ^_^

I did meet him! He came to my table and told me who you were, and I was so TOTALLY thrilled to hear that someone who knows me from the internet actually came to find me at a con! XD I’m really not that well known, so having anyone in person know me from online is pretty rare and it’s a total trip every time it happens. :D

I was so happy to do the Bubbles- I’ve wanted to to PPG fanart for the longest time but I never have an excuse! (Plus, the style is such an important part of the show that I feel like nobody would ever recognize it if I did ;)) I can’t wait for you to see it in person! My terrible phone photo doesn’t show the colors very well at all. Thank you both so much- it was great to meet aoespearman. You both seem like awesome people, and I’m psyched to have done some work for you- and especially that you like it! <333

Third piece for display at PortCon! Sailor Moon. Because why not. :3 Originally I had wanted to do all the senshi- or at least Uranus, because she&#8217;s my fave and I love her forever- but sadly, I ran out of time and if you only can do one, Usagi is pretty iconic. Oh well! I can still draw the others while I&#8217;m sitting at my table! :D Again, those dates are the 19th-22nd for the general con; Artist&#8217;s Alley opens up tomorrow morning at 9 (and at 9 again each day after). Come visit me! I&#8217;ll be starved for company and probably a little overwhelmed! :D

As promised- an Adventure Time piece! :D I find this show entirely delightful even if the art style is well out of my fancy-dresses wheelhouse. As such&#8230; Fionna, Cake and Marshall Lee, me-style. ;) I had a ridiculous amount of fun with her crystal sword. Go Fionna! :3
As with the Labyrinth piece, this (as well as prints) are going to be for sale at PortConMaine this coming weekend. 5&#8221;x7&#8221;; Micron pen, Copic marker, colored pencil, white gel pen.

A couple days ago I uploaded a totally unfinished beginning-of-lines for this, and it got a stunningly warm reception. For which I of course thank everyone. :3 This is the finish!! LABYRINTH FANART, wooo! :D This movie is damn fabulous, the costumes are 80s-as-fuck, and I love it so very much. In all likelihood it firmly influenced my oddly specific affinity for poofy ball gowns and men who can turn into birds. &gt;_&gt;
This thing (and prints of it) is going for sale at PortConMaine, which is coming up uncomfortably quickly- I only say uncomfortably because I&#8217;m SO inexperienced at cons, and I&#8217;m afraid of making a total goober of myself with my inexperience. But if you&#8217;re in the Portland, Maine area between the 19th-22 (that&#8217;s the end of this week!), feel free to stop in and see me! :D
