Drawlloween 2015 – Day 5: Werewolf

Drawlloween 2015 Day 5

If you know me, you know I was just waiting for the werewolf day to turn up! Since this is meant to be a horror themed challenge, I went with the transformation itself, the anguish of bone and sinew rearranging themselves, the fear of a change completely outside of the person’s control…

Drawlloween 2015 – Days 1 through 4

Drawlloween 2015

The Drawlloween 2015 art challenge has been going around the Internet, and I decided to participate! So, for each day during the month of October, I’ll be doing a new drawing based on the day’s theme. Here are the first four of them; I’ll be posting the remainder daily.

New Phoenix Design and Buttons

Phoenix Pinback Button, Magnet, or Keychain

I designed this new phoenix originally for doing a silk painting project. While that didn’t completely work out, I loved how the design turned out and decided to use it for other things. The round shape naturally made it an excellent candidate for adding to my collection of buttons!

New Centaur Illustration

8.5"x11" Centaur Shamaness Print

I call this illustration “Centaur Shamaness”, showing a palomino centaur lady in the forest with her black raven familiar perched on her arm. The horse portion of her body is a lovely tan color, and her hair, mane, and tail are nearly pure white. She’s seated on the grassy floor of a beautiful forest, with green leaves and dangling vines all around.

New Mermaid Artwork – Ocean Life

Ocean Life

It’s almost a joke at this point that whenever I try to draw a mermaid, she ends up being non-traditional in some way! From mers with dolphin tails or fish-like faces, to “gorilla whales”, or even the extreme example where a drawing I first envisioned to be a mermaid ended up being a rattlesnake naga living in the middle of a desert, they have never quite been the beautiful fishtailed beings most people associate with the word.

So, I figured it was about time to add an honest-to-goodness fish-tailed mermaid lady to my collection. I colored her in a striking blue and gold motif, in vivid colors as befits a fancy ocean mermaid. Her hair is also a lovely deep blue shade. Here, she’s swimming with a friend, a rusty red colored octopus. I’m a huge fan of cephalopods, and it’s kind of sad I didn’t have one included in any of my artwork up to now! Ah well, problem solved. 🙂

Not Evil, Just Misunderstood Bookmark Design

Not Evil, Just Misunderstood Bookmark I did a redesign on the “Not Evil, Just Misunderstood” button I made a while back. This version was done to fit on a bookmark that nicely compliments the original design! Both are available in the Etsy shop:
