So in case anyone was unclear on why I was studying random disembodied parts of -real- humans, it's to get better at painting -imaginary- humans
Pretty pleased with progress so far, but there's still so much left to learn!
I did a small series on borked fantasy tropes at one point. Here is the first one.
"The reverse mermaid tries to warn sailors away from dangerous rocky shores, but alas, the sailors are compelled to sail closer by the reverse mermaid's supple legs"
Lately I've been dissatisfied with my underdrawings, so I'm going to work through 'Anatomy for Sculptors: Understanding the Human Figure' by Uldis Zarins with Sandis Kondrats and Monika Hanley.
First up, three torso landmarks, the first of which are scapulae
I updated my worldbuilding blog with this entry because why not:
If there's anything that makes you curious about my project, I love getting reader asks! If selected, asks are answered with art and in-character (although canon from the main project is relaxed)
Trying out something new. A prop design with context and notes. This is a medieval 'tonguestone', kept on a warlock's person to ward off gluttony-flavored bad luck. Pierre has embellished this tonguestone with his own personal mark.
Painted this tricksy fella for Sarah Schanze as part of the month I dote on original characters, OC-tober! Was working with a primarily red color scheme, using green for shadows, and then gold for highlights.

My final #sketchtember is fanart for @thedrawingduke. I wanted to convey a view of her take on the Phantom of the Opera from the catwalk of a stage.

Today's #sketchtember is for @shoonabee! Shoona recently released a zine where all the characters are underwater, so there's no speech bubbles.
Don't worry, sharks are just big puppies that explore things by biting them gently: shoona.itch.io/maelstrom-city
Today is #Sketchtember #24! I drew Esther for @wowowosh, the notorious entomologist who makes cute comics that make everyone love bugs...and robots.
They do really lovely things with science and art: https://www.esabelleryngin.com/
