Almost Forgot!

My friend Kevin's D&D character, Songkill Warsinger

Some stuff

All this stuff has been kicking around for a while, just waiting to be scanned.

First, some stuff from class (Minerals, woooo)  (I'll keep these small, cause they're kinda boring.)


Okay, enough of those.


A girlthing.

A dragon.

Nyx in disguise.

Nyx pencil sketch.

It has teeth.

Working from a tutorial.  Just seeing if I could do it.

EDIT:  Two more, because I'm procrastinating.

 An custom orb for a D&D game

A less than custom orb for a D&D game.  :P
...My character fights with balls.

PE Slumber Party Exchange


Madeline Marie's "Kitten", in both cases.  I'd really like some tips on refining this toony style I'm trying to work on.  

Sunday, November 8, 2009


Um, stuff.

Iuliana, in a toony style I'm playing with.

Nyx, in the same style.

Taurus. Oooh nooo, no pants!

Taurus and Djinn.  I think I like how I'm doing Djinn's magic.

More calligraphy crap. 
Look out for Mesozoic Sea Dragons! 

A mosasaur

And a plesiosaur. (Their necks can't do that.  Shhhh, basically no one knows.)

PE Pick-Up (SBLite)

I took on a pick up for the Sketchbook Lite round at PE.  Here are the results!

Cade for Kate (Dreor).

Az for Monni

Camo for Monni

Catta for Monni, which refuses to scan well, for some reason.

Monsieur for Monni.   I just adore his design.

More of those Calligraphy sketches

Taken with a camera phone.  Um, whoo-hoo? 
I wish I was posting more good art, but for now these'll have to do.

Still getting the hang of this style.  This one's head really bugs me.

 It's a cat.

I seem to have problems with jaws.

I think I ruined this one with the red flowers.  Beard!

Ever Wonder What Minerals Look Like Under a Microscope?

If you have, then fear not!  By merely scrolling down, you can discover the answer! 
(These are drawings from my first "Optics and Spectroscopy of Minerals" lab)

A grain of Quartz in Cross Polarized Light (XPL) showing Undulating Extinction (See how the colours are different with rotation?  Yeah, that's what that's showing.)

This one is showing something called a "Becke Line" which is a line of light that appears between two minerals in Plain Polarized Light (PPL).
It is really bloody hard to draw a line of light with pencil crayons.

An opaque mineral grain.  ...Meaning I got marks for drawing a little black blob.

Garnet, in XPL and PPL, to demonstrate that it is isotropic. 
I was running out of time by this point - can you tell?  XP  Also, the XPL one demonstrates why I wish we were allowed to use markers for solid black portions, rather than pencil crayons.

Okay, not the most exciting sketch post ever, but.... whatever.

Sketches and doodles

Small sketching binge last night.  Found out that my scanner and photoshop really hate my green pencil for some reason.  Anyway.

Quick self-portrait.  I'm not that thin.
Felt compelled to draw a kookaburra.  I <3 Kookaburras.
I also <3 foxes.

Yeah, sorry about this.  Terrible scan quality and darkening the shit out of it was the only way you could see anything on this sketch.  For the prompt "Crazy Wig" over at  PE.
So that's the sketch binge.  But because it's the start of a new year, you get to see the first of my school doodles!  (Joy of joys!)

This one started out as a microscope.  Then it turned into a robot with a top hat and a cane.

And a margin tattoo doodle.  
G'night all!
