My cousin, Ada, let me use her face as a reference while I practiced my realism skills. It’s clear she had fun with these expressions, and so did I. She calls the piece “Adapocalypse,” and said it looked like a movie poster. Somebody start making this film!
In case you haven’t noticed already, I’ve kind of given up on Inktober this year. But I’ll try again in 2021!
This was a project I did for school called “shattered value.” We could “shatter” anything we wanted, and I chose a rose as my subject. I wasn’t sure about it at first, but by the end I thought it looked really nice.
Through doing this project, I learned a lot about lighting, values, and shading techniques. Not to mention patience—coloring all of those boxes took FOREVER! But I think my hard work paid off, because the piece turned out very neat and clean (in my opinion, at least).
My great-grandmother passed away two days ago. She was kind, caring, and incredibly strong. We will miss her dearly. Rest in peace, Grandma Ruthie.
Just some kitties I drew to practice exaggeration/stylization.

The other day, a friend of mine came up with an idea for a collaboration where we each make half of a drawing and then switch sketchbooks. Then, we complete the other person’s drawing. This is the one that I started in my sketchbook, and she finished. I think that it turned out really nicely! To see the other half of our collaboration, click here.
This is Amaya, my Dungeons and Dragons character. She’s a wizard-sage halfling, and the voice of reason in our party. Amaya has spent several years away from home studying magic, and shows promise as an aspiring wizard.
I haven’t had the chance to play her much, but in our first session, my friends and I sent our characters on a quest to fight a manticore. Unfortunately, Amaya was immediately stabbed and her health points dropped to 0. Luckily, one of our party members was able to stabilize her and she survived. I almost lost her in her very first battle, though…it was quite the adventure! Hopefully she won’t have so much trouble next time.
