Inktober Round-Up

This is Inktober! This is Inktober! Inktober! Inktober! Inktober! I've already started on my list of Halloween-y movies to watch as October goes by. The first couple on my list were the Nightmare Before Christmas and Sleepy Hallow. I feel like these movies will help me get inspired for all the monsters I'll be drawing… Continue reading Inktober Round-Up

Inktober Supply Suggestions

Earlier this month I asked for assistance on what monsters I should draw. You all warmed my heart with all the wonderful suggestions. However, what made me the most excited was seeing in the comments how so many of you were also participating in Inktober! I can't wait to see all of the artwork this next… Continue reading Inktober Supply Suggestions

FanArt Friday: Candle Knight

During my Bachelorette Party, my maid of honor brought up a podcast she thought I would love. We listened to a couple of episodes, and I got hooked. This podcast was created as an answer column for the modern era. The brothers jokes can be crude, so this is not for everyone. But they joke… Continue reading FanArt Friday: Candle Knight

Alavara was training to be the next House Mage of the Draxid family, but due to a series of unfortunate events she lost the opportunity. What will she do now? In today's post I share some rough sketches of my next D&D character.

Fanart Friday-Magikarp Jump

Back in May the Pokemon Company released a fun new app about the "weakest" Pokemon from the 1st Generation. For those you don't know the series, Pokemon started as a role play game (RPG) where you train elemental animals to battle against other trainers in an alternate universe in order to become the best trainer… Continue reading Fanart Friday-Magikarp Jump

Invader Zim Is Coming Back!

Back in 2001 Nickelodeon ran a series about an alien who came to Earth with his robot to invade and conquer. This show, called Invader Zim, had an art style slightly similar to Tim Burton but still its own thing, and a plot as fun and chaotic as you would expect from Nick. Most episodes… Continue reading Invader Zim Is Coming Back!

FanArt Friday: Belle (From Disney’s Beauty and the Beast)

I am a Disney Kid. There's no way I can deny that. I've watched every movie that has come from Disney that I can get my hands on. And though I love all the Disney characters, I've always been annoyed with Belle. Well, not her, but the way Disney sells her. Most of the promotion towards… Continue reading FanArt Friday: Belle (From Disney’s Beauty and the Beast)

FanArt of the Day: Horizon New Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn is set in a world where robots roam the land that look very similar to ancestral animals. I was very inspired by this concept and worked on some artwork inspired by one of the creatures in the game, a Tallneck.

Applying the Scientific Method To Art Studies

I've finally taken the jump, and have decided to explore how to combine art and science. If you follow my Something Called Science sister site (or would it be called a daughter site?) you might have seen my latest post with the picture below: Which shows most of the steps included in working with the scientific method.… Continue reading Applying the Scientific Method To Art Studies

Art of the Day-Patterned Kitsune (Nine-Tailed Fox)

As some may know, I really enjoy the Pokemon game series. Heck, my first blog post was creating corkboards inspired by Pokeballs. One of my favorites from that first generation was Ninetails. I loved trying to learn how to draw it, and soon came to learn that this creature was inspired by the myths of East… Continue reading Art of the Day-Patterned Kitsune (Nine-Tailed Fox)
