Did a bit more on that Dragon

The 'pre sketch' from Book Expo-
I did a bit more while sitting at my Caba Creative trail stand  (when I wasn't making the fish hat.)

Book expo- Large drawings

Book Expo drawings and paintings

 A few unfinished ones here- ones I sort of started then gave up
or thought  "this bit has to dry" and put it aside then never came back to it.

 A bit rude this....but then if its good enough for Norman Lindsay to do these sort of things.....

Little Bad Wolf.

Woefully behind I feel- my replacement cintiq pen arrived today.
Thankfully it worked/cintiq works so I don't have to face the loss of $3000 piece of equipment.
But I have been trying to test with watercolour and find some colours I'd like to use.
Here is an example.


added a bit more- 
this watercolour paper buckles badly and I'm too lazy to stretch it (too used to those watercolour blocks)- so I keep making mistakes with fine stuff on all the up and downs of the buckles.

Dodgy troll

New cintiq pen still hasn't arrived-
will it all work when it does?  :(

Mini Fenrir

An extrapolation of that fox image and style
- I sort of like the rough brushstroke with the large brush.
Trying to love the rough.
Again a bit  more children's book-ish than my usual childrens book look.

In progress- scanned it in so far.

Getting a steadier hand I think when it comes to the tiny tiny eyes.
Again you can see my detailed under drawing....haha

Technicolor wizard

another quick fiddle on these watercolour sheets
I like the glowy look to the phantoms behind him...

Just imagine how it might look if I knew what I was doing.
And took more than 40 minutes

another watercolour scrap...

I wonder when my new cintiq pen will arrive-?
Was it the pen that was broken or is it the whole thing?

Well the pen- I made sure it was broken...
tried fiddling it to see if something was loose and the whole thing fell to bits in my hands

Startlingly real portrayal...

of the blue jelly footed space pug
as seen on pluto- if they'd get decent cameras

I should use my powers for good instead

Sugar Princess

Half baked unfortunately- started on the left with dress decorations and .....nothing on the right.
A scratchy idea for a Little Bad Wolf character.

 Just need to learn more about princess dresses I guess.

Another Springbrook troll

Am going to do a bit more on it but thought I'd scan it while it was just painted- because once the watercolour diffuses overnight it will look different  :/
