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. 👍

Timed seed-starting badly and I'm skipping town for a few weeks, so my family is going to have a smattering of tiny lettuces stuck into random parts of the yard
Oogh, still slogging through a bit of brain mud lately (and haven't had all too much art to share), but hey: seeing a whole slew of friends in a few weeks, and I've applied to table at one of my favorite local art shows/charities. Crossing my fingers to get in!
