Kim and Aggie

I absolutely love watching "How Clean Is Your House." There's something oddly pleasing and therapeutic in watching two British ladies scold people for having messy homes. I guess it's because I know that no matter how messy my apartment may look at times, it's not as bad as the houses on the show.

Moi the Riveter

I needed a morale boost so I did a self portrait of sorts. GIRL POWA!!! Mind you, it doesn't look very much like me, but at least I tried to include my round nose.

...Is Cool But Crude

One of my absolute favorite shows when i was a kid. I may or may not do all 4 turtles... we'll see.

I hope it looks like he's doing a flying attack of some sort. Grant just thought he was being all gangsta. Wahh.

Raphael - WIP

Raphael the ninja turtle about to strike. Such a great show... although I'm more partial to Leo. Will color later. Drawn digitally with a tablet.

Night Elf - In Progress

Yes. I know. Guilty as charged. World of Warcraft has forever tainted my past. Don't judge. Or do, if it amuses you. It seems like such a long time ago... You know, pre-baby, when everything was different.

This was my priest Tarantella (a.k.a. HEALPLZ). The cool thing about being a healer is... everyone needs healing. So you're almost like a household appliance. Or deodorant. You don't really think about it until you really need it. And if you don't have it nearby you freak out and break out into a sweat. Buh-dun-DUN!

It's-a Me!

I did draw something for today but it turned out awful and I'm too embarrassed to post it. So instead, I'm posting an oldie from 2007.

Epic DBZ Battle

I love requests because it means people actually visit this blog. Two people requested I draw Vegeta, but I couldn't resist adding Goku. Shenanigans ensue. Obviously.

Epic thumb wrestling FTW.

My Backpack's Got Jets!

I missed a day yesterday! Oh, well. I decided I'd rather get more sleep rather than stress about it. A good decision, if I do say so myself. In any case, here's the finished shaded version of the colored drawing. I probably won't add a background. Sadly, they're not my thing. Mostly because I stink at them. The original drawing is a lot bigger and more detailed. A lot of that was lost with the shrinkage. Mehhh... probably a good thing.

The Impossible Duel - colored WIP

Not quite done yet, but at least the base colors are down. I'm not great at coloring/shading, so we'll see what tomorrow's version will look like.

The Impossible Duel

So Grant had a dream the other night. A Star Wars-related dream. While this in itself is not unusual, part of it involved a lightsaber duel between two VERY unlikely characters. There are two reasons why this duel would never occur. Reason number one being that Boba Fett and Padme Amidala are not Jedi. Reason number two being that, well... by the time Boba is old enough to become a bounty hunter Padme has been long since dead. Still a cool dream though. I may color it sometime.

In the Meantime

I'm in the process of drawing a more involved sketch, so it won't be posted today as it is not finished. Instead, here's an older sketch with characters from X-Men Evolution.

Old Stuff

I'm posting some older stuff today. The Yoda scan turned out really dark, but I didn't feel like fixing it. Maybe I'll rescan it someday.

Demona Colored

Demona was such a great villain. But there was always that part of you that secretly wished she'd join the good guys.

Thursday, April 7, 2011


It's technically past midnight, but baby went to sleep late today so it counts. Here's Demona from Disney's Gargoyles. Such a great show. Ah, memories. I may clean it up and color it later.

Legit Prince

Today I decided to color yesterday's lines on the computer. I also cleaned up the edges of the picture since the scanner darkened them a little.

Why, it's my dream prince!

I love the part in Sleeping Beauty when Briar Rose dances with her "Prince." Pen on paper.

Soames Forsyte as played by Damien Lewis. He has a weird scrunchy angry face. We crack up every time. Dedicated to my sister-in-law.

"You're so cold! Made of stone! Always made of stone!"
"You'll marry him over my dead body, you hear? OVER MY DEAD BODY!!"

Cloud person!!!

Back by popular demand, the dude with the spiky hair and the big sword! Cloud is the protagonist of the legendary video game, Final Fantasy VII. It's been years since I drew him! Used references for the pose and outfit.

Little Mermaid

So we've been watching a lot of Jane Austen movies lately. Like, A LOT. And no, I don't *make* Grant watch them with me; he is a willing participant. He's the romantic sort. So today's sketch celebrates mushy love stories.

I used a movie screenshot as a reference. It's not perfect, but you can tell who they are, and that's enough for me.
