Ruana and Mint: Background

*Gasp* Look I drew a full background! Would you look at that! Well I am pretty close to being able to ink this picture. I have to say that this is probably one of the most complex drawings that I have done in a while.

So needless to say this picture will take me a while to color. The image on the left is the 8x11 image that I carried around for a short bit while working on figuring out exactly how I wanted her pattern so I could work on the background in the larger image at my leisure. Surprisingly enough the hardest part for this drawing for me was the shrubbery and what I was going to do for the weeping tree branches.

Ruana and Aspen aka Mint

Here is the small scan that I have been working on a little bit for Ruana's patterning. I still have to figure out what Aspen's colorations, though he prefers to be called Mint.

I will have more on the pair of them as time progress I think. The background is slowly coming along well.

WIP preview

Well this took a little finagling but I ended up getting it to look how I wanted it so here is a preview of what I am working on.

This piece is going to be on 11x14 Smooth Vellum Bristol board, I am thinking that I will be working with colored pencil on this one. I will be adding in a background as well for this piece, in what little background space I have left that is but I already have an idea so we'll see if it works when I try to add it. If not I will come up with something else.

Pixie Sketch

Well here's another sketch, this character is actually going to be part of another drawing. So eventually there will be a piece that contains him and another character. Both of which need names so that is another thing I will have to make sure to look up.

So it should be a fun piece. Though I will fully admit I hate trying to figure out hands. I know it is good practice but I still don't necessarily like it. Hopefully I will get a bit more time to work on it today.

Random Sketching

This is what happens when you get inspired to draw between 12 am and 1 am in the morning. Since this is what I had done bright and early friday morning while chatting with friends before crashing and having to get up for work by the latest 11am. Needless to say I was up by nine after going to bed at 2.

I might see if I can fix some of her slightly distorted anatomy when I get a chance to work on her again. We'll just have to wait and see.
