Watercolour Ordog

Coloured and added a tail to my Ordog. I still prefer watercolours to digital, I can't get the nice paper texture just using photoshop.

Assorted sketchbook figures

Posting up a few drawings from my recently finished sketchbook.

The last chappy is the first page in my new sketchbook, but I'm planning to do more backgrounds and life drawing sketches in this one. I don't want to be stuck just doing one off characters on blank backgrounds all the time.

Falling In Love Again Comic

A quick comic, trying to keep up a steady pace(by my standards) on these. The song the fellow is singing is You Got Me by Jaibi. Didn't quite manage to capture the mixture of suprise and contempt which you get when crooning to a cat.

M is for Maa-alused

And to save neck strain:
Maa-alused have a  parallel life to humans with all the orientations reversed. I think this is what I have enjoyed most about doing these alphabeasts, all the strange folk tales and myths I've learned.

Into My Arms Comic

Yes it's a new comic! Going to try to do more of them this year, but I do find them a lot harder than one off illustrations.

Done with a nib pen and coloured in photoshop. I also used a ruling pen for the panel borders but I made a few mistakes and had to neaten them up digitally.

L is For Lidérc

Up to L on Alphabeasts. A Lidérc "hatches from the first egg of a black hen kept warm under the arm of a human." if it's a woman they shapeshift into a man and suck their blood!

Pen and ink.
