I found this monstrous thing underneath my old bed at my parents’ house! The paper was easily two or three feet wide, so it had to be photographed. I’m still very fond of the sirrush in the upper left corner.
Guys. Guys, I really liked dragons as a kid. I still do but far less consumingly so
I did a lot of art this year! Unfortunately, most of it is unpublished and/or for unannounced projects. And while I prefer to put this yearly meme together with exclusively private non-fanart work, a good deal of fanart/published/professional work made its way into the spread.
I would like for 2013 to be a “keep your head down, work work work and don’t stop” year, though that was the intention for last year and I didn’t get half the things done last year I wanted. Or maybe I keep unrealistic expectations of myself.
Funny how the year both opened and ended with Dhio and Kaia! Maybe I should do another portrait of them before the month is over.
The beast has moved to the shallow murky water, its eyes moving to the top of its head to peer out of the water or from underneath silt. It can survive outside of the water during drought, but not for extended periods of time.
Every one of my roommates individually laughed at this dude while I was painting him.
After doing the Exquisite Beast for a year, I’ve been meaning to push myself more with real media, maybe emulate something similar to the whimsical lineless stuff maruti-bitamin and tir-ri do, or the mixed media paintings Sam Bosma seems to be able to churn out in his sleep.
Anyway, I seem to be on a Beast Husband kick. I think it started about a decade or two ago and expect it to putter out around the time I die.
