Wow--long time, no upload!

Hey guys! Here's a bird-boy named 'Archer' that I did ages ago, just to experiment with design and line weight. School was so crazy, I forgot to put him up here. :>

Hope you like it! He was a quickie, but fun to mess around with. I did several animal characters like this for practice, I'll see if I can find them all, haha.

First picture of 2012! How exciting. (except that it’s just a picture of Cecil reading, but hey—baby steps toward exciting art)

Cecil’s a bright fellow—mostly because he’s a voracious reader, and for the majority of his life books have been his only ‘portal’ to world outside of his spindly house on the hill. He enjoys all sorts, but especially books on birds, adventure, and—somewhat to his embarrassment—romantic stories So, here he is staying up into the late hours in his lonely, creaky home because he can’t seem to put down a book once he picks it up.

Even though there are plenty of errors, I had a fun time painting it while I’ve been relaxing at the family cabin. :> And I’ll be doing more Cecil artwork soon. Hope that you guys like it! ♥

Guys I swear my artwork will start being less boring. Hang in there--HANG IN THERE.

This one was a fun concept to work on, haha. Normally, I don’t do visual puns, but I love lions (and Victoriana in general), so I made an exception for this. I went with a simple approach, for the colors, so it was a good piece to just mindlessly tinker on.

It’s digital + watercolor bleed. I hope that you enjoy it! <3

A painting I did as an experiment with gold ink. It turned out quite nicely if I do say so myself!

This original piece is for sale here along with many others! Check it out and hopefully help find it a nice home!

Super quick 4-panel done for Storyboarding today--gruesome but fun.

Moral of the story: don't get cocky around a sore loser! :> Especially if that sore loser can fit your head in his mouth.

To the screaming rabbit
Or stricken deer
Kind death on silent feet draws near.

I’ve always liked the concept of a ‘grim reaper’ for the animals; some eerie-but-kind being that comes to spirit them away as they die. I enjoyed painting this--it’s a mishmash of some of the animals from the mountains that I love, the Tetons.

And, it's spooky, so a happy almost-Halloween to all of you charming people. I hope you enjoy the art! ♥

…hey guys, do you get the joke in the title? Because he’s a ghost, and…ohoho yeah I’m a word magician.


Here’s Carmori, taking a closer look at one of our quaint Christmas trees. :> Christmas trees are always prettier at night, and of course, there’s no better time for a ghost to enjoy them than after everyone’s gone to bed.
Last year, I did a silly little picture of Cecil painted into a photograph, and I thought that it would be fun to do the same sort of thing for Christmas this year. (I was correct. It was fun).

I wish you all a very merry Christmas, and happy holidays. Cherish your time with family and friends, and be joyful. :heart:

(The photo and artwork are both by me. :>)

Cecil never did know what his face should be doing without a mask.

Haven't seen this fellow in a while! I’ve tried for ages to accurately draw Cecil without his mask—and never done very well at it…at all. Until now! It still isn’t perfect, but this is leaps and bounds closer to how I’ve always intended him to look.

He wouldn’t survive long without a mask, but he wishes he could. I’m happy to get a more accurate portrait of him finished :heart: I hope you like it!
