This was a sketch I was planning for Untold Legends but have scratched the idea completely (don’t like the drawing much and now going even more rare pair) and have nowhere else to put this. So here it is, all lonely and fest-less.

Some months were hard. I was prolific in March-April, not in June, then gained speed in Sept-October, then started petering out again.

I saw Thor 2 and this is what it inspired me to draw when I came home. I love Mama Frigga, she understood Loki.

Pose reference

In the mood for colors. Inspired on this Holland Roden photo.

Merlin in an Asylum for Sorcerers. He uses the last bit of strength to turn his fellow sorcerers into butterflies so they can escape. Watercolor.

Here are my favorite Inktobers*.

* What is Inktober you ask? It's a month long appreciation of the art of drawing in ink.

Tried out a new technique for shading on this Elan portrait instead of a blending stump. I like it much better, it appears to preserve the line strokes underneath.

Last and final try. I tried watercolor, pencil, and now it seems this model is just drawn best with rough paper with charcoal.

Ever pull out a piece of paper intent on doing something then the hand does something else? I didn’t do this, the hand did. Probably have to do one more of this gorgeous model to get him out of my system.

Eoin Macken as Gwaine

Quick pencil sketch for the night. Drawn on watercolor paper but too scared to try those teeth and beard stubble rignt now.

I haven't watched Gwaine's death, I don't know if I ever will.

Yes, I'm a wimp.

Vanessa Hudgens Watercolor Practice
Watercolor and pencil.

I used Vanessa Hudgens as a reference but took away all her bling (feathers, necklaces, bracelets, piercings, etcs, so much!). I just wanted to practice.

Only the brave butterflies

My first art trade ever, and for the super dooooper talented Nike-93 and her OC's: Walter and Luca © Nike-93 and Giury

AU or peace time mid-20th century (I am not studied on the latter era, so maybe! much of their original story takes place in WWII) - Walter takes Luca to a butterfly garden but the sudden rains scare the butterflies into hiding, accept for a few that seek shelter under their umbrellas. Luca loves butterflies and I loved the symbolism they provide for their story. Brave soldier men! I love these guys, very sweet characters of a war-torn time

Check out the artist on deviantart.

Emilia Clarke Watercolor

A new watercolor technique I read about in a new book. It is much faster (including pencil sketch this was an hour!!). It scanned dark and I tried to fix it, I have yet to find a perfect solution for putting traditional work online.

(I don’t watch this show but the actress shows up on my dash a lot. I think she is very pretty)
