Don't blink! We're still going!

This is one of my favorites from this year. I don't know if it was the inks or the pencils, or both, done in 2001. I should keep better records or something. The original of this went to one of my artists in lieu of pay. :) (Their choice! I don't foist art off on artists instead of money unless they ask me to.)

I kept plugging away at this psuedo-freelance thang. Character is India.

And discovered oils! This is Laila, and this sucker took like 6 months to dry. I'm looking foward to trying these alkyd paints I ordered for my class... supposedly they work just like oils but dry overnight. We'll see!

This was also a commission - Malin.

This, believe it or not, was also a commission. I had a sketch of this (Did I post it? I can't remember - it lived in my Elfwood gallery for a while...) in a portfolio that I showed off at the fair, and this girl fell absolutely in love with it. I think she might have bought the sketch, though it hadn't been really for sale, and she came back the next day to commission a bigger, color piece with that theme. This might be my best selling piece.

I did this for the Adventurer's coloring book. More playing around with moosey unicorns.

This was actually a RWH (Elfquest) piece that I was playing around with big areas of black in. I rather like it. It was the first piece I submitted to Epilogue, back in the dark ages of that site, and I'm still surprised it's there!

    It doesn't quite capture the colors we have, but it dried considerably darker than we'd hoped. We have decided to paint a few areas over…
