Actually have five minutes to upload this. A commission that I had to finish yesterday 'cause I'm leaving today. Also have another painting that I had to get done last night but didn't take photos of it (commission for a friend of the family of a cross, on feathers)

12"x16" canvas, acrylic paints.


WIP seen here (with awful yellowish lighting - ick)

This took way longer than anticipated.

More ink! My newfound love <3
India ink, and coloured pencil and watercolours for the coloured parts.

Zebras are so gorgeous. They make me hold onto the dream that someday my boyfriend will take me to South Africa and I can see wild ones. Though he refuses..I can crack him! xD

Been on a bit of a black-and-white-with-a-splash-of-colour kick. I just love pieces like that. Didn't turn out exactly as I had planned, but close enough.


Bonus points to you if you can pinpoint which song the title is from. Can't stop listening to them <3
Yay lady singers!

Whoa. Somethin's changed.

3 o'clock in the morning scribbles.
Inspired by my fave artist ever, yet her pieces don't contain this much creep. Hers are magical. :heart:

Did manage to impress my boyfriend though. He left for like 15 minutes and by the time he got back I was already over halfway finished (having started about 5 minutes after he left). So total, about 30 mins? And done entirely with a simple black ballpoint pen.

And uh...supposed to be an apocalypse'd city on his head. I'm not very good with cityscapes. :C

Where can I buy fancy paper? I want fancy paper.
I also want to dye my own paper with tea, and then draw on said handmade fancy tea papers. Mmyep.

Here is the prize for :iconthe-perspective: for coming in first place in my contest awhile back.
She requested a red-tailed hawk, either realistic, surreal, or a combo of the two. :)

I'm pretty happy with this, just wish it was bigger. More details!

Took me awhile to come up with a concept for this piece, but I'm relatively content with it. The nebula was fun to paint. Challenging, but fun.

I hope you like it!! :heart:

Here is the finished piece of

A commission for a couple that my grandma knows that just lost their Greyhound to their pool. Sad story makes me sad. :c

I was touched that they turned to me to immortalize their beloved pet, so I was more than willing to squeeze their commission in.

Done on an 8"x10" piece of white bristol, completely done with acrylic paints.

Interested in your own custom pet portrait, with dimensions like these? See my Etsy listing for it : [link]

An entry for a rather large contest, wish me luck!!

So my little sister was hanging down on our dock a couple weeks ago and happened to spot something that we have NEVER seen in the area before: a River Otter. My parents have lived in our yard for 27 years (and we are always outside), they have never seen one before here, we didn't think they existed in our river! We suspect that this little dude may just be cruising through, since we haven't seen him (or her?) since. My sis was lucky enough to have her camera with her, and was kind enough to let me use her pics for reference.

The only part I actually referenced was the otter, and the front half only (back end was covered in greenery). I wing'd all of the foliage, the shoreline and the water. Whew. Challenging to make things look realistic sometimes when you don't have a ref.

So all painted with acrylics on a piece of watercolour paper.

Feedback would be hugely appreciated!! :heart::heart::heart:

Commission for =ShePaintsWithBlood of her awesome character, Knote Mime.

Gosh, I had so much fun doing this! Such a unique design! I love knotes, they're so magical and majestic and scary! I'm going to do this again soon and maybe learn how to do it properly. I'm afraid I didn't capture Mime's essence at all. :( And I think I left some things out, which might have been important... If you want me to change or add anything, please tell me, Blood! Like the petals on her neck?

Done in pencil in my sketchbook then cleaned up in Photoshop Elements.

Commission for `ShePaintsWithBlood
I am so very happy with this piece, especially because Aria is always the first one to commission me when I have them open, even when there has been no one else interested, and so I wanted to make this as good as I possibly could. Also because I'm always slightly disappointed by how the commissions for her turn out. I want them all to be completely perfect to every detail and they always fall short. But this piece was different somehow, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

The creature depicted is one of her Yarnlings, which you can find in her gallery, if you want to know more about them.
Really hope you like this <3
I may open commissions again after I finish the last two for ^VAngelLJ, but we'll see how I feel after those are done.

Hmm. This looks really dark on this computer. It looked a lot lighter on my other laptop...gah.

Commission for :iconshepaintswithblood: :heart:
Her knote, Whimsique.
Such pretty flowing fur, so fun to paint.
Very difficult to get a good shot of this one, both scanner and camera did funny things. There is thread stitching over the eyes like requested, and I used some silvery iridescent paint in a few spots, like the buckle, eyes, horns and splatters in the background.

Hope you like it love! :heart:
