Brave sketches

some sketches of Merida (and bear) from Pixar's Brave. I got the 'art of' book a few days ago and it is just beautiful. what else can I say?
Merida's hair is so fun to draw btw!

IllustrationFriday: Shiny

this has a story (but not a true story): my roommate has a Sheltie and she is quite keen on shiny things. If I were to really sort out all of my change from a piggy bank she would be staring at those coins with the cutest, sweetest, eyes in the world! she is a master begger and one of the most adorable dogs I have ever seen!

sequential piece

here's a 3 page comic I did as one of my finals for class about a poor little bookworm and the literary hero that saves her! Can you guess who it is?
 First time doing a sequential-type piece. It was a lot of fun and I would like to experiment and do more sequential pieces in the future for sure.

quick update!

 cover of my sketchbook that got into Best of Ringling! (will post some sketchbook pages soon)

I tried doing something new here: a semi-quick (5 hours worth give or take) concept art type piece for a fictional animated movie. Painted directly in photoshop over a sketch.
