Old, old art from back in 2008/9, and one of my first landscapes. It’s pretty painful to look at —there’s no perspective/depth/logic to speak of—  but reminds me that I have indeed improved in the last half decade!

Just got back from an awesome trip visiting friends and saw that I somehow gained a bunch of new followers. Hello, everyone! Have a messy sketch I doodled to help me unwind.

Got hurt by a close friend of mine this past couple days. A while ago something really similar happened with someone else; I was pretty frustrated with him, so I drew an angry sea serpent snapping at a sailor (which the first friend was) to vent. This more recent guy was not a sailor, but the frustration is the same, and I realized I hadn’t uploaded this yet. Something cathartic about drawing waves.

Field Sketch - Sea Lion. Tried to make it look like a quick sketch a traveling biologist might make after encountering a strange creature.

Just some Spyro the Dragon fanart in a cutesy paper cutout style. Textures from mayang.com.

Finally finished that piece for Nagi-Wolf! It got a little distorted when I resized it, but hopefully it still looks OK.

Another work in progress shot for that trade! Ugh, I wish I didn’t work so slowly.
