There wasn’t really a good way to reword this one so as to be appropriate. Part of the humor of Dorasmus’ lines was the alliteration, and monkeys “fudging” a football just didn’t have the same effect. Yes, he really said that. Continue reading “Awkward”

Here is Mirium and her infant son, Aubraan. This image was inspired by my writing a scene in which Aubraan was nomming on Mirium’s pauldron. Someone said I should draw it, so I did!
Getting the color balance on this one correct made me want to pull out my hair. The background started out as blue, then green, and now purple. I also had to over-saturate the characters’ skin tones so they would pop out properly among the rest of the busy picture.
This is one of the first pictures I attempted adding sun glow and reverse shadows to, too. If you see purple shadows on an object instead of a darker shadow of its normal color, that’s the reverse shadow effect.
If the future, I should probably remind myself to smooth out the shading.
For now, have a partial stream of the clean-up phase of the Mirium Sketch (better title to be determined). Fuller-length streams I plan to include on Locals in the future, for the price of $2 a month. You will also get access to an exclusive fans-and-devs community besides just supporting me to continue more work like this. I hope to see you there!

This was one of the first images I had taken using a new cell phone. The image comes from the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado. The railroad here is a cog railway: the little teeth running down the center line are able to catch and hold the train to help gain traction going up steep slopes as well as keep it from running backwards down the mountain when the train stops. Some cog railways are no more than two feet wide to get through narrow mountain passes; this one is more like four.

I’m not sure if this creek has an official name. This photo was taken along the Seven Bridges trail in Colorado.

Some of you may recognize the skyline here as being the same one as shown in my Rising Sun Collage. It’s just a few yards in a different direction. It’s not the same sunrise either, as evidenced by the snow on the ground.

I went and added a bunch of images to the header today. To celebrate, here’s a list of all the images the header contains as of September 2021. Continue reading “All Header Pictures”
I sketched this out while listening to a podcast. I did no clean-up on this image, just black sketch lines, followed by some color with an acrylic brush, followed by more acrylic brush in grayscale to create the impression of mountains, finished out with a gradient underneath it all.
There’s actually two backgrounds here: the top half is a mountain dropback, as if the Dragon Thing is lower down in the valley, while the bottom half is distant mountains, like the Dragon Thing is standing on another peak. I couldn’t decide which I liked better, so I did both!
A quick experiment, using some different brushes on Medibang Paint Pro to create an impressionistic background.
Fun fact: technically, this horse color can’t exist. The first hoof is a white sock on a chestnut. The back hoof is a bay or black. You can’t be chestnut and bay/black at the same time.
