My fifth nekkid Winx club fairy, a gift for :iconcupcakedoll:.  I only have one more left before she will own an entire set of nude fairies... and it only took me, uh... many, many years.  ^.^;;
What's this?  I finished a naked fairy for :iconcupcakedoll: in only two days!  So unheard of!  Now I only have two more to go before I have completed the entire set.  ;)
Fox Oracle
Look, a background!  Of sorts.  ;)  Apparently I can still use watercolors, even cheap ones, if I don't try to do any fancy techniques.
Night Creature
I'm trying to get back into watercolor... it's been so long, I'm not sure if the galaxy effect didn't work quite right because it's been too long, or because all I've got now is cheap watercolors, rather than the expensive ones I learned on.  ^.^;;  The linework and feathers were done in gouache, my first time using it.
The sky is falling, I managed to finish a naked Winx fairy for :iconcupcakedoll: in less than a year.  Done in pearlescent watercolors and lined in brown color pencil.
Jersey Devil
This was a second button design for SNAFU Con's 2018 paranormal theme.  Unfortunately, only one person out of the hundreds we gave them out to was able to tell it was the Jersey devil, rather than just a generic dragon.  *sadfase*
This is my other favorite, my wendigo badge for SNAFU Con's 2018 paranormal theme.  He's a joke off of my hungry ghost button... as the wendigo is also hungry, but not for cake.  He's hungry for human.  ;)
This was one of my favorites of my cryptids badges for SNAFU Con 2018 for the paranormal theme.  I think I got the look of goat annoyance down perfectly.
Here's my take on a snallygaster for SNAFU Con's 2018 badges for the paranormal theme.  The snallygaster was kind of odd to draw, since apparently it sorta shape-changes?  But I rather liked the ones described as lizard birds with tentacles coming out of their beaks.
For this year's SNAFU Con badges, I decided to do all cryptids for our paranormal theme.  This is the mothman, who really just wants you to like him.
Hungry Ghost
I drew this little guy for SNAFU Con's buttons for this year's paranormal theme.  He's a hungry ghost... and he's hungry for cake.
A little witch I did for the SNAFU Con 2018 fliers.  The theme was paranormal, by far my favorite theme so far.
Night Owl
Another one of my inktober pieces, the prompt was "Night Owl."
I originally drew this for SNAFU Con, since this year's theme was Paranormal, but it didn't actually get used.  Probably because I finished it months and months before they needed any art.  ^.^;;

Personal Quote: "She's not naked... It's art!"
So yeah, the last time I updated this journal was four years ago... with a post of me saying that I was gonna try to be more active on DA.  And we all see how well that worked out.  :P

All I can say is that I'm going to try to do better.  Since I'm currently unemployed, I've got nothing but time on my hands, which means that I can certainly spend some of it on DA, getting to know the other artists out there once again.  I don't know if this new drive to become an active part of at least some artist community will last once I find a new job and become busy again, but we'll see.

As a part of my new resolution to stop being such a hermit, I've volunteered to be the art director for Reno's first anime convention, SNAFU Con, .  Anyone in Northern Nevada or California should check us out!  Yes, as a first year con, we'll be relatively small, but we're going to have a very reasonably priced Artists Alley... and the con will even take care of getting a temp Nevada business license for you!

:heart:   :hug:   :heart:   :date:   :heart:

So, on a more clueless note, does anyone know how to make DA journals pretty without having a subscription?  Can it even be done?  I swear, DA just gets more and more incomprehensible as time goes by.

Thanks for the favorite!

I watched your Copic Marker and Lining tutorial panels at SNAFU :D (i was the one with the white wig and blue and white costume at the copic panel and full white outfit at the lining haha) I really liked the picture you were lining, I hope to see it on DA! It inspired me to try that lining style on a picture i'm taking a short break from now :D
I'm planning to do my own artist table and maybe some panels next year, hope to see you there too!

Hello, Nuriko! I'm the girl that watched your inking and techniques panel at SNAFU yesterday, and that also won second place in the advanced contest. :) I actually had made two different versions of that picture, and I was thinking that maybe I should show you the other version. [link]
I prefer the version without the white outlines my self, but with the white lines I also toned down a few colors, so I'm not sure which version I'm full-heartedly on... :XD:

I really loved watching your work in the panel room, with the inking techniques ^^ I learned so much! Thank you for having that session! :) I've always had difficulty with lineart, whether it was digital or traditional, and now I think I know why. I'm going to be experimenting with more traditional linearts now, to see if I can end up with results that I like and that I can also use.
