Digital practice. :D I start to figure out what techniques work for me. And which won’t. I find it a lot easier to paint over a draft with the colour I want instead of using a colour layer, like many artists seem to prefer.

Wolf Goddess as a trade. :D The birds are painted in pearlescent colour (sadly, not very visible on the scan. :) ).

Two of the newest drafts. :D Felt like drawing more swooshy dragons again.

Finished and scanned version of those two partners in crime. -w-

A friend asked for her rabbit doll OC with my heroic rodents. :D So, now Mage Raggedy got a templar at her side to protect her while she casts spells.


Sir Squeakalot might not be tall, but he will not flinch in the face of danger. Even if you accidentally sit on him.

The bat is slowly starting to feel threedimensional. :D Haven’t even started with the mouse yet.

The mouse was drawn on the bus. The empty space just screamed for a bat. d:

AAALLLL the swirlyswirl~!

Ok, this is really therapeutic. -w- I’m definitely feeling more like myself again.

Now with lots of blue. Because blue. And everything is better with blue. :D At least if you ask me. :D

Dragon harpy with locks, just for the fun of drawing locks and scales~. :D

Waiting doodle. There is little as stressing for me as waiting for someone to stop talking so I can get back to keeping up with deadlines. :’D

Finished and scanned commission of a moth warlock. :D That cape was fun to colour!

That wip is REALLY hard to take photos of. O-o

Anyway, moth-commission work in progress. ^^ The cape is fun to colour!

though I have to practice with digital a bit more again. -w-

Finished and scanned version. Some people colour mandala, I go wild on patterns, to calm down. -w-

Fiddling around with something calming while I wait for some mails.

Putting together the next drawing. That is going to be fun to colour. :D Experimental fun~.

And once more separately, because I’m apparently tumblr-stupid and can’t figure out how to reblog with attached drawing that is actually clickable. <.< 


Still A4-ish, still scanned version, sorry for the spam. d: Thought you guys just might like to be able to see it a bit bigger.

I couldn’t resist this. The idea of space sirens and starmaids just make me want to grab pen and paper instantly. So, this is how I enjoyed my free Sunday. <3 My thanks for @quietpinetrees for the wonderful inspiration.


Scanned and coloured version, traditional media, A4-ish

Star-mermaid, because I can’t work on those game boards the whole time without getting distracted by creatures of which I’m told they don’t exist and stars.

Work in progress of the current pen and paper commission. :D It took a while to get it to a point where I could start colouring it, but it was worth it. I’m pretty proud of the setup of this one so far. Now I just have to get the colours right. :D

Swirls and some behemoth-like creature. -w- This was relaxing to draw~.

I had not intended to finish this doodle, and then a friend requested a bit a bigger cup size and a red dress. d:

A bit more details. -w- Now, let’s see what I can do with that from here on. -w-

Finished and scanned version. :) Just fooling around with a bit of colour~.

First free day in a while and enjoy it with watercolours. -w- I always notice how much I miss just sitting down for drawing when I can’t do that for a few days.

Finished and scanned version. :D


And the lore again, for those who liked it:

“Galaxy serpents grant wishes.
But changing reality, no matter how trivial of a change it might be, requires unfathomable amounts of energy: For each wish granted, the serpent devours a star.
So, be careful when you tell your children to make a wish upon the first star they see at night.
They might be heard.”

(still in progress, mostly watercolours and ink on A3 mixed media paper. :D)

Space unicorn and galaxy serpent. : D Yep, I wanted a reason to draw spacy stuff.

Some blue and watercolour. Just for the swirls and fun. -w-

Magic often relies on believe and we believe what we remember. So… sometimes you should be careful when you make yourself remembered. Because magic - like many other things - is only as benevolent as its wielder.

Aka: Do not pull their tails. They do not like this. And they might start believing in humans if they catch you.

More shading and colour. I had intended to have this one in soft watercolour shades. I guess I failed at that. d:

For all those people who always tell me they want to have a city guardian on their own, to pet it. <3

(BESIDES THE STUPID JOKES, I noticed right before starting that I had run out of masking fluid, so I just decided to paint the white over the colour again later. :) White acrylics are good for that. ^^ Though it requires a few layers till the white looks good. Masking fluid would have been the faster option here.)

Always thought that clocktowers are magical. :D Besides the ones in Castlevania, of course.

Typical case of no planning, but I start to like it. d:

Haven’t drawn any city guardians in a while. :D
