Concept Sketch

I know I've said it before, but I love being able to sketch out ideas for writing. Here's a quick sketch. Sadly, I can't show all of my pieces for ideas, but I don't mind sharing a few. Just a quickie! I need to get back to those Monster Girls...

Snow Child

My internet was off for a few days which was great for drawing. I was able to get a ton of drawings done (mostly quick sketches before work). Here's Eira, a snow child from a story I'm working on. I had fun doing this style too. :)

Peter Jenkins

"Yes crazy girl. I'm Peter. Wooh. Yaay. You won the big prize. Now get out of my property before I call the police."

Let's draw with thin lines, okay? I just finished the manuscript for this character a few weeks ago. It was a little twist on Peter Pan and very fun to work on. Anyway, I drew out the characters and based the style off of a piece I saw online with a similar style, thin lines and bold color. I'm thinking of doing that for my November art challenge. Who knows. Here's the first character. I love his freckles.

Black and White Lana

I'm actually not really a fan of Lana Del Rey save the one song she did for The Great Gatsby. But I saw this picture and thought it'd look cool like this. And it took quite some time, but I'm happy with it.

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: True Monster

The real monster in this world is silence.

I'm way behind on these but I've been swamped with school work and work work. But I'm not giving up! I will finish this series, and continue with my art challenge. Anyway, I've been wanting to write a story set in Nazi Germany so here's a piece inspired by that thought. Next: Zombie

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Succubus

All girls seem innocent at first.

Oh punch line, you scoundrel you. I'm caught up! Not crazy about this one, but I do love her outfit. 50s sleepwear was pretty sexy. I can't handle it. I'm glad I got through those two though, seeing as I had a hard time with them. Next: True Monster.

30 Day Monster Girl: Demon

Who knew bad could look so cute.

Okay I'm a day late. I had an insane day yesterday with work and surprise visits from friends though. And I had a hard time drawing this one. I'm not forward to drawing the next one either (which I'll get done next). But here it is! Next: Succubus!

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Octomaid

He thinks her attention is solely on him. Silly boy.

Day 8! Are you tired of these? I'm not. It's fun to take a word and try to interpret it my own way. But I want to post up something besides monster girls. So I'll see what I can do. Next: Demon

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Plant Girl

Business has been pretty slow. I wonder why...

I've been wanting to do this one ever since I first found out about the challenge. I still have a few ideas of poses and such. Very fun to draw! And I'm all caught up. Next: Octomaid

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Spider Girl

She's the kind of girl your parents warned you about.

And we have our last one for the day! Fun fact: I'm terrified of spiders. No really. Terrified. So here's a black widow spider girl with a new victim in her clutches. I'll be honest, I may hate spiders, but I sure do love this piece. Yay! I'm all caught up! Next: Plant girl!

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Mermaid

And today's catch of the day is...

Yes! One more to go then I'm all caught up! This one is a mermaid. I'm not crazy about it, but I like the concept of the drawing. Lots of blues. Next: Spider Girl. Oi...

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Naga

Sun bathing.

I'm trying to catch up but Conference has been so wonderful and I've been tired and busy writing in my journal. Still, I got this babe out. Fun fact: snakes like to lie in the sun so I drew her doing just that. I was inspired by diamond back snakes. Here's hoping I get more done today so I'm all caught up! Next: Mermaid!

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Slime


Well this was a hard one, but here's the next one. Hopefully today I can look into catching up and getting to number six. Next one: Naga.

Moxie Girl

I swear these art challenge pictures are harder than they seem. Especially this one. That background was a trial. But anyway, here's Moxie Girl! If I was a designer my label would be called Moxie. And it would be vintage inspired clothes. Her head is big and I'm not in love with the proportions but this was pretty fun, and the products are really cool. Check it out:
You can find more at my store.

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge: Centaur

I don't have much time so I'll have to come back later and finish but this is the backgroundless simple color design of the Centaur girl. I had a hard time with this one. Not very 50s pin up but it does have a bit of a pin up feel.

Love, Jack

I had this idea for a little short story about a girl who is sent to live with a mysterious man she never sees. And wellah! It turns out he has a pumpkin for a head. And he's cursed and blah blah blah it's not beauty and the beast I swear. But anyway, here's a fun drawing!

30 Day Monster Girl Challenge - Harpy


Seeing as it's October and I've always wanted to do this, I've decided to try out the 30 Day Monster Girl Challenge. Not sure if I like it with the background or not. I was planning on doing pin up style work but I didn't want to do the coloring in pin up style. I kind of like it done this way. It fits my art goal for October anyway.

Next: Centaur

Native Darkness

A sketch that had a mind of its own. Might make it a print.

Footsie


Two new prints in the shop. I couldn't decide if I liked it with the quote or not. It says, "One is very weak when one is in love" in french, a quote by Madame de Lafayette.

I think I have a good idea of how I want to sell my work, or what my product is. I like doing colorful vintage prints in a vector style. Not that lines are out of the picture, but I think I'll follow in the style of Antonio Lopez or a fashion print style. So now I'm just working on stocking up my shop with new products so I can get out the old stuff. And it's really fun. :)

Hans

I'm obsessed with the upcoming Disney film Frozen and already I have a favorite character. And when my sister asked me to draw him I had to oblige. And that led to ideas and well... I just had to draw more of Hans. I couldn't help myself, even when my hands started hurting.


Dilemma

Here we have a lovely concept drawing... And no background. I can't seem to think of what I want to do with a background, nor am I satisfied. Not sure what to do.
