With these two pictures, I have caught up on Inktober :D Day 4: Scallop Yesterday's prompt was 'scallop': I am real happy with how the upper shell came out, and pretty happy with the lower part. I feel like the interior of the scallop would benefit...

Inktober 2022 has begun, and I am already behind haha. I'm going to try to draw something every day in October based on the #inktober prompts, and will post my drawings - I'll aim for every day, but we'll see how that works out. You can see how it's...

This week (when I demanded an assignment) my friend Kuniko said "I know! Draw a dragon!" and I went looking at dragons on the Google to find reference. Of course, because of the conspiracy, there are no photos on the internet of Actual Dragons, so th...

"Why did you make him green?" she says.  I didn't want to leave him in paper-and-graphite, because he'd look like part of the rock he's sitting on. I thought the green would contrast nicely with the browns and yellows and blue in the background, more...
