i got space in the dealers room for fur reality con 2015 and I’m super excited. The theme this year is Viva and i’vevstarted playing with sketches.
This three taled fox is all set for Halloween and the day of the dead. Would you give this cutie candy?
Remember to commission a badge to be done in time for @furrealitycon . Just email me through my website and we’ll chat.
A few days ago my husband asked me for a Chibi grim reaper. Here is the work up.
so, for some crazy reason, I decided to take the large sketch pad to work and forget my regular pencil. So alli had to draw with was a non photo blue. So this is a technique I don’t use often.
And because it’s a crap set of picks cause… Non photo blue pencil I took a min to do a tiny bit of pen work.
And because I’m nuts of filled in all the skeleton pile, it’s not done yet.
Supplies cannon 11×14 sketch paper, non photo blue pencil, copic liner, and the grey Kneeded eraser.
So many people ask me over and over “why do you talk about the holidays months out?” It’s simple really, if I’m on time for the holiday I’m late. No ones buying halloween stuff to be delivered within a week the day before Halloween. It’s really that simple. So, on that note. Here is a super cute grey mouse inside a very surprised Jack-o-lantern called he’s more afraid of you.
Challenge one was figuring out how to show the segments of the Jack-o-lantern without outlining the entire thing (trust me that looked crappy)
Challenge two was I apparently don’t own a lot of shades of orange. Just 5 which sounds like a lot but isn’t. So supplement warm grey in cause Orange is a warm color (usually). That and the mouse had to be a different shade of grey. He’s cool grey.
This was done with Copic marker and liner.
So, Magic was my last commission of the convention. He supposedly had plenty of full-character badges, but no busts. Well, I am certainly able to remedy that! His character sheet mentioned his hobby was writing, so I felt the need to incorporate it.
Getting the blue right took a bit of work. I ended up using two shades of blue, and working up the rest with 8 shades of grey. I suppose he will have to write about the other 42 shades (I hear there is big money in books about grey)
This piece was done using Copic markers on Strathmore Bristol 500 vellum paper.
This commission was for Leandro. He asked for his character as a toddler. He is a Manticore Pirate King. The Manticore part was easy, but the Pirate King aspect was a bit harder. I had originally suggested a sword, probably a wooden one, but he was not really into the suggestion (given we are talking about a toddler). I thought about a tricorn hat, but that would obscure his horns. So instead I went with a onesie and plenty of gold to convey his successful pirate life!
