Pinned toot

Finished up this little guy for ArtOrder's Tiny Dragons call for art. Tried hard to keep the value structure strong and intact this time around. 8x8", created with my usual mess of colored pencil, ink, watercolor, and a little bit of gouache on hotpress watercolor paper

And WOW HELLO, loads of new folks here since the last time I checked in! I'm Katie/Rowkey, hopping around the US and trying to find my place in the illustration world- currently doing a mixed bag of freelance work and convention dealing. Around here you'll probably see me yelling about mushrooms, cemeteries, orcs, and fountain pen inks. πŸ‘

Did a quick census of the dubia roaches and, including mine and the gecko's, there are approximately 518 legs in my room right now. πŸ‘’πŸ‘’πŸ‘’

Got a new mug from my favorite local ceramic artist (who, alas, has no online presence) and had to take a few glam shots of it next to an older piece of his. Mugs are magical, dammit

Some nonsense-orcs from the past couple of days. Trying not to be afraid of art and just have at it with a pen and whatever else was nearby.

It's rush hour in the megacity, everyone's trying to get places in their flying cars.

As much as I'd like to continue with this, I already spent a whole day making it and I just don't wanna fight blender 2.8 in it's alpha state any more. So here it is, as is!

So @Weavrr was like "you'd better draw your orc girl in mom jeans"

So this is Wari. She's got one pointy ear and one floppy ear and fights catfish (and you) for a living.

In a similar vein, tried out some Smoky Quartz ink out in the field and it did tHiS and I don't even know how to react. i n k ✨ ✨

While @Weavrr was in town, we stumbled upon a Daniel Smith watercolor sale and I splurged on some Moonglow. Here it is next to her Shadow Violet- both so stunning. ☠️

It's a small and cute time where you can seek out random peoples' characters and draw the heck out of 'em

Before I run away to cafe job, here are a few of my favorite photos from farmsitting for a friend: a highland cow and her highland/tibetan-yak offspring. Adored watching them. πŸ’š

Had a wonderful time hosting @Weavrr. We managed to accidentally find a pen/stationery shop in Kansas, so WALLETS WERE DESTROYED. Smoky Quartz is my newest ink addition...mud inks mmm

here's the very first iteration of this idea, fun to see how poses, weight, and shape changed along the way, Next step'll be making these two come to life with pencils!

Art's still going slow. It's a month until Anthrocon, though, so it's time to try 'n ramp it up! Mice-with-bug-friends will be my self-imposed theme, and here's the first completed comp:

(this would all make way more sense if I had a vivarium of some kind, but NOPE, I've just got isopods now)

Impulse-bought some isopods at a reptile expo I was helping at a few weeks ago and I...adore them. 😭

These are an orange morph of Porcellio scaber. I have some wild-caught Armadillidium in another bin, but I'm eyeing so many other species online......
