Sketch Diary: Harpy dwarf girl thing whatever

Another example of not just letting something run off the page... those darn wings are way too small. Whatever. It's a dwarf harpy. There, ya happy! No. I thought not. Well enjoy the detail on those feathers and scales instead. Because that took forever. No, not forever. You know what I mean. It was arduous. I've decided to make this difficult anthropomorphic beauty my chosen creature thing for this other thing I'm doing with some people. So let's consider this chick (hah, see what I did there) step one. Bird structure is not my strong suit. Wish me luck.

Sketch Diary: TBT - the elf phase

Yeesh these are old. Was cleaning out some papers and found these babies. What was it about this weird 'elf ear, thick bangs' phase? I'm glad I'm past it, that's for dang sure. I also hope my anatomy has improved :cough: don't respond to that. Anyway, be free my sketches. Off to poison another young artist with that weird 'obsess over a physical feature' phase.

Sketch Diary: awkward horn girl reject

Meredith - it's okay. You get to the bottom of the page and you run out of room. This does not mean you need to make the figure disproportionate in order to fit the ENTIRE figure on the page... just leave the legs hanging off. It's okay.

NO IT'S NOT! Must include everything! Lol. So silly. Learn well, children. This is what not to do.

Sketch Diary: KERA girl in the best coat ever

And another older sketch from a KERA magazine in Japan that finally got inked. I think she turned out well enough. An attempt here to include a bit of the background. I get so bored by the time I get to the background. It's a serious fault of mine. But I always feel more complete when I take the time to do it. I don't understand why I keep denying myself. It's like not putting sprinkles on my ice cream because the container is out of reach and I'd have to get up and walk over to it. JUST GET THE SPRINKLES! Ok, ok, I will. Maybe. I want that coat...
