No One’s Pure Dream
This goes along with my ongoing theme of crossovers.  I was kind of struck by how Chibi Usa’s pjs in the anime was very similar to Windsor’s Nemo’s.  The idea kind of formed from there— I wonder if Usa’s PJ’s were intentional.  I miss the Art of Disney Class I took— I got a ton of inspiration from the class.

Lock Away
This is the second to last in the 3rd Andy Series.  The sketch came about sometime in September where I was still reeling from all of the events of 2013.  I felt that my mind, as a whole, had been torn open repeatedly by people trying to pry into my personal life and do with what they wanted.  My personal self felt too public and too beaten on.  At the time, I couldn’t really figure out how to cope or filter things out on my own, so things just kind of built up and got out of control.  It’s funny how you feel more insane once you finally believe that you aren’t and had a taste of normalacy.  Even though mentally I feel more or less stable, I’m still trying to financially clean up the mess.
The media this time is really different.  Birdnerd came over for a bit a while ago, and brought watercolor markers over.  Curiousity got the best of me and she, being awesome, allowed me to try them out.  (I’m very territorial over my art supplies…)  After the colors were put in, it was already so vibrant, so I kept the Andy monotoned.

Influence Map
The original template can be found here.  My art style is shifting again (I think?) mainly my palette— but I’m suspecting that it might be because the markers I used a year ago are out of ink, so I move on to other base colors.  Is it too much to ask for a full time job?  For the sake of ink refills?  
I can never really tell when my style shifts.  I know I get stronger—my proportions aren’t as off as the ‘09 set, I use better paper, and I have a set system for how I do things.  And then I get bored and start doing random things….  In the past, I always felt like I didn’t have a style—I was always good at mimicking—until someone was able to pinpoint how they knew it was my work, down to how I sketch.  I guess one doesn’t know their voice, really, when their nose is so close to the paper?
So I thought I’d do an Influence Map, kind of show where my interests are.  Even though a lot of colors are bold, I refuse to put Lisa Frank as an influence.  DX

Lesbos Galaxy
Some titles come to me, others are a struggle.  This ATC was the latter.

Harley Unchained
I’m not sure what I think of the new costume designs for her— DC doesn’t seem all that sure either as her costume seems to have the most changes.  So I thought I take a hit at it.  Unfortunately, I had forgotten the design for the upper part of the outfit and doodled until something came together.  It looks to BDSM— I wanted something more straight jacket-y (ok, still along the lines of bondage, but more to the theme of insanity.)  When I was starting on the colors, the top finally came back to me.  T____T  Ah well— see what kind of brain I have to live with?  I might draw this out again with the correct top.

Lunatica
During a writer’s group, I kidnapped one of my friend’s sketchbooks. (edge-of-night is her tumblr if you’d like to check out her shennanigans)  One of the sketches I thought was really cool and got permission to illustrate it whenever I got the chance to— and here it is.  A Victorian lady in a straight jacket-ish dress.  I decided to do something different and work on my pen-and-ink— and dear god it was painful and time consuming.

Actually…  It All Started With a Rabbit
I had this idea waaaaay back during my final semester in college when I was taking the Art of Disney.  At the time, the prof was going over Oswald, a creation by Disney before the creation of Mickey Mouse.  On the walk back to my place, I began playing with the idea that you see posted before you.  I couldn’t figure out what exactly Totoro was, other than some sort of forest spirit, so I’m calling him a rabbit spirit just to fit the subject.  ^_~

Welcome To Nevrynx Part II
Here’s the third.  I couldn’t remember what base colors I used for the first two, so I had to feel around.  I saved the color pencils, but the tones are still starkly different.  I hope this one looks like a part of the same series…  >.<

Welcome to Nevrynx Part I

Illustrations based on a novella idea that I have, a long way down the story line.  Rimley’s will be posted tomorrow night, which is the final of the three.  Geez, I should draw the boys more often, shouldn’t I?  I feel guilty from all the neglect!
