A catch-all dumping ground for art, sketches, and miscellany.

Bunch of doodles and coloring samples from the ArtSkills double-ended Brush-tip Marker review. I usually only test a few singles of a marker, but it’s nice to have a few more colors to play with sometimes. Limited palette is always a nice exercise in experimentation and compromise. Pink is a decent stand-in for a grey as far as darkening other colors go.

Long live the walls we crashed through
How the kingdom lights shined just for me and you
I was screaming long live all the magic we made
And bring on all the pretenders
I’m not afraid

Long live all the mountains we moved
I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you
I was screaming long live that look on your face
And bring on all the pretenders
One day, we will be remembered

“Long Live” – Taylor Swift

Once upon a time someone did a line-by-line analysis of this song as is relevant to Rachel and Tobias and that is the true story of how I accidentally got into Taylor Swift.

Final inks, including digital corrections.

I’m sure all the relative sizes are way off. I don’t think ospreys are that big compared to baldies, and the harrier should probably be smaller? But obviously it is impossible to find ref of these dudes chillin’ on a branch together, soooo. <_<

Ugh. I didn’t mean to go so overboard with the inks because every time I do, I have no idea how to color it. :D

I appreciate the nice comments some of you have left recently. :> I don’t like copy/pasting them into new entries to reply to them since the response to many of them would just be ‘thanks’ or something repetitive, but I do appreciate them.

As a note, I do have Disqus commenting enabled, so if ever you wanted to leave a longer comment, or get a response, you can leave a Disqus comment by opening the actual page for the post (instead of commenting from your dash) and commenting from there. Like this. My ask box is always open, too.
