Spaaaaaaaace!

Almost gave up on this one, it wasn't really working for me. Then I pulled out the airbrush and *chef kiss*. Started out as a Bob Eggleton master study, although I simplified the composition a lot.

Getting in a nice afternoon snooze. Gouache painting based on a photo I took in the Beagle Channel.

Working on a new comic! It’s about my ongoing misadventures with raccoons in my back yard. I am bad at the suburbs.

First time I’ve pulled out the iPad Pro in a while, and I’m glad I did! I was in a bit of a slump after I abandoned inktober due to shoulder pain. Feeling better now, and getting some of that inspiration back 😛

I’ve been more into traditional work lately, but I really love how I can make such thin bright highlights in digital work. Hard to do with paint!

Fan art for Mary and the Witch’s Flower, a very pretty movie. Really nice to be doing some color work again after all that b&w!

This is not technically for but I’ll use the hashtag anyway! It was actually high flow acrylic and watercolor, for an entry in the exquisite corpse my local comics group is doing. Read the full thing here! lmc-exquisite.herokuapp.com/cy

I’ve had to take a good long break from thanks to shoulder pain, so I figured I’d post some ink sketches I did last month as a substitute. Enjoy!

This is definitely my weakest entry this year, partly due to shoulder pain that led me to rush through it. But the show will go on! I might skip a few of the prompts rather than trying to catch up and fit them all in. Some of them will be hard to fit into the story anyhow

I had some trouble with day 4's prompt, so I had to stretch the meaning a little bit...

Ok, I’m calling it! This is my first real-life finished oil painting. There are still things I’m tempted to fiddle with but I think it’s time to move on to my next attempt. Now that I have some actual confidence in my ability to handle oils, this should be a lot of fun 😃

Happy everyone! I’m doing a storyline this time, so I decided to title it Poisonous after the first official prompt. Who else is joining the fun this year 🎃?

Inaugurating my new sketchbook with a stormy landscape painting in high flow acrylic. Keeping it squarely in my comfort zone, but hey.

Hey, this oil painting is starting to come together! The more I work on it, the more I come to understand why oil is such a favored medium. It’s a lot more forgiving than I thought at first, and you don’t need to wait for your current layer to dry to add more paint where you need it. And the blending is really really nice 😌
