Hey, all, and welcome to my spifftacular new blog. It's my first one so expect a little clunkiness until I figure out how this thing works :)
In the coming months, I hope to share some of my artwork, thoughts & random stuff that tickles/torments my fancy. All comments are welcome* & encouraged as I look forward to hearing from whoever happens to stop by. Cheers, all!
A little about me: I am a 33 year old Canadian woman who enjoys comic books, original illustration art, all things Halloween & creating my own stories & characters. I am a devout fan of Amethyst, an old comic book published by DC (it's getting a reboot next month! Yeah, baby!) & I have an extensive collection of original art from that series on ComicArtFans.com. I also strongly believe in artist's rights & this will be evident in a few of the future posts (especially when I'm p*ssed right off!)
The entries will be divided into the following categories:
FROM THE VAULT: older art from over 10 years ago (as of posting date).
SKETCH: For those works worthy to share but won't likely make it to a finalized stage.
WIP (Work In Progress)/PROGRESSION: This is where I will update works as they advance further along.
(NAME OF CHARACTER): These entries are what I would call my "regular" style. This is where many of my completed works will appear (pencil, paint or otherwise)
DOLL: A stylized form of drawing characters in a vaguely-super-deformed way. Kind of. Not really...
CHIBI: Having been into anime for YEARS for a while there, I came to appreciate the ultimate super-deformed style of drawing & it's insanely fun!
HALLOWEEN: 'Cos I make a LOT of Halloween stuff for my own displays & for my best friend's cemetery display.
RANT: Things that are REALLY angering me/stuff I feel strongly about.
Stay tuned, more to come :)
