Gorgeous, Perfect Ella

I didn't get her face *quite* right, but I think it's still pretty obvious who this is. :)

Brush pen and graphite.

My husband said I'm not allowed to have a crush on her because "that would be weird".  So I supposed it'll have to be a secret crush (add her to my list of dead people I have crushes on). Because seriously... Ella Fitzgerald is just beautiful. She's the original Queen.

Fanart Friday: Link in the Forest Temple

Because the last Link was less-than-dignified, I decided to do a cool one (EDIT: The aforementioned less-than-dignified Link).  Legend of Zelda is such a fun thing to fall back on when getting back in the swing of things and toying with what to draw.  Does anyone else fall back on fanart when warming up?

At any rate, here's that Link!:

I've been resorting to a lot of greyscale/watercolor washes lately, and decided to go with just stark blacks on this one for a change.  granted, I colored it, so that might've cancelled out whatever my subconscious was trying to do.
And the sketch:

A reminder that you can find me on twitter and instagram!  I'm doing my best to slowly get my work out on a lot of platforms.  Oh internet, you have so many ways about you. The only one I haven't really tackled is tumblr.  Not sure what to think of that one, when I've already got a blog here.

Goodbye American Elf

Sigh.  Today's "Fanart Friday" isn't altogether cheerful - more bittersweet.  American Elf has been a part of my comics-reading life for 5 or 6 years now, and a great inspiration.  James Kochalka, if you happen to come around, Here's a message for you:

For fun, here's the sketch of James (also on Instagram):

Fun fact - the funky circle was made by drawing around a funny bowl I got for 50 cents at a thrift shop.  Useful thing.

Annnnd 2013 NOW

Many notable things happened in 2012, but there were many things I wanted to get done that I did not.  I hope that I'll be able to finish more things up and begin others in 2013!
