capping off my month-long theme stint on Sktchy. good times def, though now i won't have that theme to adhere to, and the sometimes coincidental jigsaw pieces fitting into place (muse + reference + materials + time). Super appreciative of the love i've been getting there, even though some work is way lesser than others & i'm sorry i didn't bat 3000 each time for all the cool peeps willing to have me (or anybody) mutate them. this is truly a magical time o' year. That said, i'm kinda looking forward to what comes next.
after i finish this one last piece :)

T.Sharpe

paint markers, ink on card stock; 2013.
the neon colours don't scan as true as the source, but def better than a photo. lately been inspired by the really great stuff i've seen of various artists' on tumblr & again, the aforementioned Sktchy app. quite addictive drawing/painting/whatevzing these days. of course, procrastinating/avoiding Big Deals, but in the meantime...

just got onto the Sktchy app & liked the overall point of the thing; i hadn't touched ArtRage in a hot minute, so thought i'd re-stir them embers.

messing around on DrawSomething2 seems to hit the right balance of having enough tools to do wacky stuff and the limitations of a NotSeriousArtMaking App.

scanning from sometimes neon materials doesn't always give the most accurate picture, but color-correction is approximate :/

Elevator

digital; 2013.
i may've gone a little too bokeh in trying to remember what a former tenement neighbor looked like. wearing body-glitter & superiority with the night still up ahead.

Ms. Maggart

ink, marker bleed-through; 2012.
it's a fine line between caricature & portraiture hope i'm got somewhere on the truer side of that line  also, i gotta say, it is way more fun to try to capture a likeness from moving images, differing angles/light sources than a single still image frustrating-er too, but shrug.

Thomas Ⓑarrow

he's not so much a villain, but a complicated cat with clever eyes set for self-preservation; is that so bad?

still angry i couldn't see the last visit, tried as i did that night, looking up and knowing i was missing something special. this orbiter had connections to Samuel Clemens & Challenger Shuttle, both dear to me, so it really stings.

goodtimes. always with a sense of humor & self-aware self-deprecation, this entrepreneurial chica damn sure knows how to vamp with double-servings of campy innuendo. an animal rights advocate, she supported gay rights before the rest (of a slowly-growing, waking-up majority) of this country. the character is an obvs amalgam of various counter-cultural influences, and, after looking at recent photos-- still foxy.

Ⓕinal Fantasy II

as a kid, i obsessively pored over various video game magazines. there's some useful info in there, sure, but mostly i just loved the artwork-- the various styles i wouldn't otherwise be exposed to. worlds i'd never even set foot in (games i'd never play), but the pretty pictures i could glean & cop & add to my brain bank. even in my sad old age, i still pick up said magazines, much to the chagrin of whomever is unwise enough to let me wonder off in the grocery store. anyway, goodtimes. and yah, i've yet to actually play this here RPG; they're not really my thing, but the story is still aces.
