God Jul

I am away from my computer, but will still do some drawing (thinking they will be quite short though), I will post them when the festivities of yuletide have subsided somewhat.

In the mean time: A jolly Yuletide to you all!

Day 249

Once again I tried just sketching straight on the wacom (used a scanned texture of my sketchbook to give it some character), with no real plan. This is what I came up with. No ref, around 25 min.

Day 248

What would we do without the love and support of our friends and family?!

I've had a bit of a frustrating dry-spell recently. Have you ever been stuck waiting on something, and not being able to do much before it's settled? Well, that's where I've been at lately. Things are still not settled, but thanks to my dear friends Robo, Gemma, James and Samu, I am pressing on! Also a big thanks to the monkey for just being the monkey, and loving me despite it all :D

Enough waiting,- just draw Randi! So here's the first of hopefully many catch up sketches to come:
20 min, no ref. Draw purely digitally. Something I rarely do, but I've run out of paper...

Another quick sketch for my nieces wall. No Ghibli-tribute wall is complete without the cat bus! :D

Day 245

This is a sketch for my niece. She's just 3 but already a Ghibli fan, so it goes without saying,-she is a clever one :D I am going to paint this on her wall, along with some other things she likes. Will post the result when I get there.
