Tabby Cats and the Dragon by starwoodarts

this is soooooo soft and beautiful. It is wonderfully composed and i love the whole concept and the colors you have used. i think the c...




Karries Portrait Commission by DragonPress
Karries Portrait Commission
This is half the size of my usual portraits, and the photo I was given had A LOT of areas so dark you couldn't see details at all....and quite a few areas with some dramatic highlights, so it was an unusual piece for me to do, getting the right balances of lights and darks there without overthinking it and saying "That's not normal!" 

Anyway, a softer piece, My hardest part was the kid eyes...they were SO dark, that it was tough to draw the shape of the actual eyes and not confuse them with the shadows around them...etc...

kneeded erasor and soft tissue for smudging.

this is scanned and then brightness/contrast adjusted for the scanning reflections. so some of the shading actually looks a little harsher then they are in reality...
Me as Leviathan Castiel by DragonPress
Me as Leviathan Castiel
So, as some of you know, I dressed as Castiel at my last con. It's not hair is shaggy, my eyes are brown, that kind of thing, but I'm pretty proud of it.  I wound up taking a rare selfie at the con so i could post the costume, but trying to get a good angle without any flotsam and jetsam in the background was tough.

Something about this one appealed to me and I later realized it was almost exactly like a scene in season 6 when Castiel was being 'inhabited' by the Leviathan.  Anyway, the photo kept calling to me, so i drew it and now here it is - an ink version, with hair a tiny bit shaggier and myself a little bit skinnier - but you really can't tell my eye color, and it almost looks like I've got some scruff! :D inked shadows are good for that!
Inktober Day 29 - Scarecrows by DragonPress
Inktober Day 29 - Scarecrows
So this didn't take NEARLY as long as i thought it would, but it was still difficult. Can YOU identify the 4 different scarecrows. I think these should be pretty easy, never know...

Anyway, last picture for the inktober series

Inktober Day 31 - Dragon by DragonPress
Inktober Day 31 - Dragon
I didn't want to do the traditional style dragon so i played with it.

i also wanted to close up on his face, so he looks a litlte odd, and truncated because i didn't draw a body on him. i needed a clean way to cut off the picture.

still not sure about this one, but i still love the concept. A dragon all possessive over his golden a non traditional sense :P

Inktober Day 30 - Spider by DragonPress
Inktober Day 30 - Spider
Yes, I missed day 29. I'm 3 days behind because of my daughters birthday party and then going out trick or treating. I finished this one on halloween, and halloweens prompt today. Skipped 29 because the idea i have is going to be a little more involved....hope to have it finished in a day or two.

I'm 23 days in to my Inktober. Every year I hear about it, usually too late to participate. This year, I've been in a bit of an art slump, doing none except for commissions. I'm using Inktober to get myself out of it. 

To further my Inktober, i'm using the Drawlloween 2015 list a friend found and I've been following the prompts every day. I've gotten some truly fun things that i really liked doing out of this project. Not sure what i'm gonna do with them just yet, but definitely going to do SOMETHING with them.

About 2/3rds of the prompts wind up being something geek related...and the rest wind up autumn/Halloween cutesy related. I hope you guys are enjoying these as much as i am :D
