Getting his drink on

someone online was mentioning drunk badges and I got a hankrin to doodle up a drunk skunk. It’s a rough but fun little sketch. 

I like using the strathmore sketch books. This paper is from the 400 series with a fine tooth surface. For those not buying reems of paper the tooth determines how much pencil the paper will hold. 

Get on your groove thing #art #furaffinity 

Spend all your furtime getting your groove on at the dance? Need a busy badge that really shows you love music? Get your groove thing on with a stylish music badge. Just e-mail me 

This is just a quick sketch. I prefer to do full color badges because they really pop. Hope to hear from you soon. Still taking commissions for @furrealitycon 

Drawing steampunk birdies #motorcityfurcon2016

these guys will be part of a larger piece eventually (where’s my darn protractor? I need circles dammit). they’re a pair of steampunk lovebirds and they’ll be back to back in front of a Zeppelin or set or gears or … Something steampunk related. 

This guy is almost finished but started life as   

He’s not quite a circle, a cilander, and a jelly bean but you can probably see those now that I’ve said it. 

(btw it occurred to me that all @alkali_bismuth needs to be steampunk is a few artfully places gears) 

And all lovebirds need a mate so here’s another lovebird who just happens to be a girl but didn’t have to be. 

More of these birds will happen later cause I think they are cute. 

Friday sketch dump 

What if bullfighting was bulls fighting? 

day of the dead roughs

I had some sketches and figured since they were all a bit rough I’d give you a few this Friday post. 

There isn’t anything particularly technique wise or product to talk about with these. You could do this work with a #2 pencil and some blank paper. I always carry a mechanical pencil (ok I do buy special soft lead for it), sketch paper, and an eraser with me. I’ve been known to sketch over diner, in the car, basically anywhere I go. This way, when I need to squeeze a second of work in, I can. 

I guess the lesson with random sketches say is that all my stuff starts with sketches. It’s the bones of everything I do. These may go no further than sketches. Maybe, eventually, I’ll revisit these and decide they are good or maybe just the idea was good but I wasn’t good enough yet. I’ve revisited many ideas I wasn’t good enough to draw and turned the. Into fun pieces. It’s all practice and determination. 

(I think I may be watching to much pokemon since this sounds a bit voice over moral ;)) 

6-2-1 rule #art

these kitties are practicing the 6-2-1 rule that any good con goer should follow. For those that don’t know that’s 6hrs sleep, 2 meals, 1 shower. Btw, these are minimums and may be exceeded. 🙂 

 Happy labor day everyone. I’ll be celebrating by going to work and well that’s so not a good way to celebrate except, you know, money. 

On the subject of money. Please visit and search quack quack honk.
