Emily wip 01 and 02

I took a bit of a painting break to recover from a cold, enjoy the warm weather, play a few new release video games, and work on a number of grub commissions that came in. I think I rusted up a bit, starting this painting is helping me get back into it!

PS: She is not named Emily for any particular reason… she just looks like an Emily to me! 🙂

Hellgrub & Grub Sapien

Hellgrub and Grub Sapien are a custom commission I worked on for the last few weeks! The “adopter” is a coworker of mine and I can’t wait to hear her shriek with delight! They are super-duper cute – the pic doesn’t do them justice, really! While I was busy sewing (and playing video games, and going outside for the first time in 3 months…) I didn’t get a lot of painting done, but I’m starting to get back into it now!

Space Lion wip 01

A week or so ago I was surfing DA and found this:

I usually find it challenging to come up with unusual ideas and topics. A lot of my work draws from the same limited pool of ideas. But this inspired something unusual: a lion holding the earth under its paw, like so:

When I finish it, I will have to thank the artist. 🙂

In the meantime, I’m off to bed! I’ve been ill over the past several days (Jim got it worse than I did, though, poor guy) and I need some more rest!
