Because it's fun to see how art gets from point A to point B. I'll post doodles and sometimes completed work here, from time to time.

I mainly work in Adobe Photoshop with a Wacom Cintiq.

Anyone else who can’t draw/be creative with an audience (or even just one person in the same room)? How do you handle it?



My parents acquired a blue and gold macaw. :D Thought it would be fun to doodle. Apparently it’s quite friendly, but its claws and beak need to be trimmed before my mom will let it out of its cage, haha.

Some more donation commissions! And this set is for verticil! Geez, I’m really slow with these. ;w; I’m trying to make them as perfect as possible, and I think that’s why I’m so slow. I keep discouraging myself. %D BUT I’LL GET THEM DONE.

I also wanna say that I had so much fun drawing these two. ;w; I LOVE THEIR COLORS. /screams to the heavens

FYI, I am not accepting commissions!

Here are a couple of awesome renditions of my characters by the talented bechnokid! It was well worth the donation.

I.. need to draw my own characters more often. <:D

I’m a bad person that never got around to finishing this because of a combination of laziness + busy-ness + forgetfulness. But, have what I did finish. <:D

Handy tip if anyone wants to actually be able to search their tumblr likes: Sign up for if this than that. You can create handy “recipes” that link services together, including ones that will copy your tumblr likes to a bookmarking service with tagging abilities.

In my case, I have it set up so that if I like something on Tumblr, then it will add a private bookmark to my Delicious account. This works for non-tumblr-y things as well!

I was just looking at my tumblr and thinking “huh.. feels like there should be more new stuff than there is.” Probably because I have a million not-quite-good enough doodles lying around (a few that I may post later if I can’t bring myself to actually finish the whole Pokeddex challenge for this month), and a few that I want to actually colour and just haven’t gotten there yet for some reason. Whoops. :D

So, have some weegee doodles. (Plus peach!)



We lost our african grey, Sam, a few months ago while my husband and I were on vacation back in Calgary. Apparently he hadn’t been feeling well for a few weeks, but I had no idea how bad until I got there. We’d only had him for about 5 years, and knowing how old Greys can get, it came as kind of a shock. It was a small comfort to learn that he looked fairly old.

This is the last of a bunch of doodles I made of my birds in illustrator. I wanted to capture some of Sam’s essence. He was full of personality, but definitely acted like a grumpy old man at times.



Sometimes the final drawing turns out a lot different than I’m expecting, and this was one of those cases in some ways. I originally got to inking, colouring, and shading based off the purple/blue sketch, and when I went back to look at it later, it was terrifying. (Which is why I’m not uploading that version D:) Even if that weren’t the case, though, it just wasn’t looking right.

So I went over it and resketched to the brown version, which I liked a lot better. Hope you enjoy more cute squishy dragons (plus one jello shapeshifter).

(Hopefully I don’t need a spoiler tag on these guys anymore…)



Learned how to basically get unlimited Metal Coats (yay friend safari) and have been using these guys to exploit that - Nincada for compound eyes and Trevenant for Frisk and Thief. :D (Though my real pile is actually smaller - it still takes time to find Magnetons hanging onto metal coats.)

Next I have to figure out how to trade for an army of Scizors..



Not a doodle, but I figured that someone might get a kick out of an original Halloween decoration. I bought a bunch of little tiny decorative pumpkins, though I was lazy and left two unpainted. The others turned into a minecraft creeper and this silly spider. Painted with acrylic paints. The limbs would probably look better if I had used black pipe cleaners, but I only had white and coloured ones on hand. 

These also last a lot better than carved pumpkins if you’re in a warm climate.
