IF- "Pale"


white crow.

Power Animals




I've been drawing lots of owls. also rabbits. the occasional fox. I was reading just for fun about power animals, animal spirit/guides...to see what kind of symbolism is attached...I've ordered a book from the library about it so i can find out more, haven't got it yet....see I have to put this big disclaimer that I don't take this stuff seriously. why is that?
Anyways I looked up the animals I've been drawing, and a few more besides...After a bit of searching I added mouse to 'my' animals: 2 predators and 2 prey. Funny, after drawing so many of them, the owl didn't really seem very 'me' at all; it's the odd one out. There is something about sight- of observing, and being invisible- that comes up for 3 of them, which appeals to me very much.

AT-AT RABBAT


one watercolour, one digital for the colouring. I don't know which I prefer.
This was a difficult drawing for me...too mechanical; I like organic! Princess Leia Organic! haha!
(groan....)

Rabbits

Sketchbook Page of the Day


I thought this was so great when I was done. Now not so much. But, no regrets.

IF 'Contained'

This isn't really 'contained' anymore but this is what came out of that prompt. Everything else I tried seemed too heavy-handed, and I've ended up doing yet another self-portrait.

More Stuff I Made People for Christmas


This was a Kinder egg toy: now much improved! I found him in the back of my closet; I"m sure he'd been there for years. He was missing his arms, and to me that only meant one thing: Monty Python! I painted him and added the helmet.

AT-ATs




I thought it would be funny to have model At-Ats out in the snow. Cabin fever does crazy things to a girl and it took 2 weeks to finish and there's no snow left.
