Hello, all! Welcome to my new sketchbook :D

First is a piece called "Sunbird" that I started in ArtRage and finished in PS. "As they tried to corral the thing that evening, its horn began to glow. The cowhands were about to discover that this ungainly black creature they'd found was a sunbird." :rolleyes:
Also, we have another little Gorey-esque sketch, and a water dryad :)

WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW.
(Sorry. It's the only thing I can say!)
These are...these are...Words can't even begin to describe how amazing these are. :eek:
I love the Sunbird and the Dryad one. The Gorey Tribute one is great too!

You're amazing. :D:D

Fantastic work as always! Love the cartoon and the new bird creation. I am most taken with the fantastic job on the cowboy figures and especially the one horseback one on the right. What great figure drawing.
The portrait is beautiful too.

gzairborne: aw, thanks gz :)
Evart: thx, I think you're right -- the color does help :)


Here we have "Fantime" and a bored fire-faery, both drawn in AR and finished in PS. I sketched this picture of Fantime from Les Mis the other day as I dealing with a bad cold.. she ended up looking exactly like I felt! :rolleyes: (My husband assures me I didn't actually look anything like this ;))

I did the line art for this sketch in AR [I love AR's pencil!!!] and colored it in PS. This is the knosk, seldom seen in the wild; the knosk is particularly fond of terpinflower nectar.

I am new to this forum and enjoying my visit. These are wonderful works. You are very talented and know how to use your software well. Do you use a tablet and also do you sketch your work out by hand and then scan it and import it, or do you draw directly into the program?

JeanB: hey thx, JeanB :) I do have a tablet (fantastic things, tablets!!!), and usually I work digitally from sketch to finished piece, especially with AR, since I'm hopelessly enamored of its pencil tool. I do traditional work [and lots of other pieces in PS and Painter] as well -- check out my blog (http://artistaggie.blogspot.com/)!!! :D
mannafig: gracias!
gzairborne: thx, gz :p


A motley assortment, as per usual:

1) sleepy-stretch cat is ... stretchy
2) Unicorn Girl -- yeah, I dunno....
3) singin' the Workin' Man Blues..
4) "Do Want!", drawn in AR, colored in PS -- the cautious diphu roams the plains [and seldom falls for such ploys]
5) scribblez :) I'm particularly fond of the hamburger man, practicin' his stabbin' (as Futurama's Roberto would say)

"Lollipop Paws" [aka 'Sticky Fingers', I s'pose :p], from Edward Lear's "The Jumblies":

... They sailed to the Western Sea, they did,
To a land all covered with trees,
And they bought an Owl, and a useful Cart,
And a pound of Rice, and a Cranberry Tart,
And a hive of silvery Bees.
And they bought a Pig, and some green Jack-daws,
And a lovely Monkey with lollipop paws,
And forty bottles of Ring-Bo-Ree,
And no end of Stilton Cheese.
Far and few, far and few,
Are the lands where the Jumblies live;
Their heads are green, and their hands are blue,
And they went to sea in a Sieve...

"Legendary white stag trapped in a forest." How very touching it is. All are
very well painted ... an amazingly enjoyable collection! :)

Can hardly contain myself ... so absolutely the high end of adorable is
"Skinny Malinky Frog-legs!" The artistry is superb and not to mention ...
I know two people that would immediately identify with your painterly
couple ... one can dance and the other??? ... wellllllll ... many lessons
might be in order and that said ... there would be nooooo guarantee of
the effort nor the results therein. :D Wonderfully whimsical, love this,

I love Skinny Malinky Frog-legs Learns to Dance!

This painting, both in posture and facial expression, perfectly embodies the words "Dance" and "Joy." :D

Interestingly, (to me at any rate) the face of the girl with the big eyes, bangs and straight hair, looks a lot like me at about age 11. :cool:

And your horse is just super!

Gray
11-20-2009, 06:47 PM
There is just an amazing array of variety between each image, I would never have guessed that all of this came from the same artist. When compiled together like this though, it really says something about the fun loving nature of the artist.

Reynard... as in Reynardine? Gunnerkrigg? I don't think I've ever seen such a cute harmless little version as that if it is! Great job.

Mairzie Dotes
11-20-2009, 11:37 PM
AmontilladoAg,
"Mermaid Lagoon" is pure sweet fantasy ... "faces" are admirable
expression studies ... "Paso Fino" is quite exceptional and "Ninja
Boy, Pirate Girl" tugs at my romantic side. Forbidden love you say?
It can't be true because they look like the perfect couple!
Wonderfully painted updates! :)

Gray: lolz, yeah, my work usually ends up bein' pretty varied :p and yes, "Reynardine" was the inspiration for the little fox pic -- not the Gunnerkrigg version per se, but more the devious ne'er-do-well from the song (http://www.metrolyrics.com/reynardine-lyrics-sandy-denny.html) I was listening to at the time... and I decided to make mine as cute as possible. :)
Mairzie Dotes: thx, Mair :p their love is only forbidden in the internet's "ninjas vs. pirates" sense, I think
Caesar: thanks, dear C :D


So, keepin' it random as always, here we have some recent works...

1) The cover illustration for some coloring book pages I was commissioned to do. I did all the sketches for the entire project in AR, then traced them in Illustrator to give them the thick coloring-book-lines look.
2) "The World in Solemn Stillness Lay" -- what if angel-singing looked like colored stars?
3) a 'Father Christmas/Santa' sketch

AmontilladoAg,
Am not aware of the above mentioned "Illustrator" program but the
finished product is a fantastic coloring book illustration for kids. Those
Basset's are adorable with each having their own separate, lovable
personalities.

I am immediately taken with "The World in Solemn Stillness Lay." What
a most heavenly painting an yes ... I do hear those angels singing as
they light the solemn silence of night's winter sky with their luminous
presence. What a most wondrous, inspirational piece and message and ....

"Father Christmas" exemplifies my impression of what Santa has always
represented ... a benevolent spirit of giving and unconditional love.
What creative beauty of heart, soul and joy these art works have. :)

Reynard is fantastic. Gotta get that out there again, Tom Siddell is perhaps my favorite artist at the moment, followed closely by Aaron Diaz (not to be confused with the acting fellow)

Every time I see this thread resurface, I think "YES! Another one!" I really love your father Christmas fellow here, Somehow manages to convey the state of the economy in a non-ironic manner, and it's just great. Really puts the emphasis back on the spirit and away from the circumstances.

Recent sketchings... in btwn joyous/haphazard holiday doings. Huzzah! :rolleyes:

1) The faces, as usual.
2) My husband, sleeping.
3) A horse study.
4) This is kind of cheating, b/c I did it in Painter, not AR. :eek: But I'm hoping, in your jolly Yuletide mindset, you'll see past that and enjoy the pic.

It's not just a thread, dear Monty, rather an exceptional art book and a multiple styles tutorial by examples as well!
Who needs to watch TV anymore to expand our view and enjoy, when we may admire these gorgeous images?

Caesar: Grazie mille, C :D
gzairborne: thx very much; I thought the horse turned out pretty well -- especially considering that it started out as a 4am-can't-sleep scribble :rolleyes:
pai: thank you so much, pai :)
Boxy: hey, thank you! :)

I've got two offerings for your viewing pleasure this afternoon -- some studies, "Headdress" and "Green Jay" (coloring/title inspired by this song (http://www.metrolyrics.com/green-jay-lyrics-christina-courtin.html)).

This is my first visit to this thread and I am so glad I entered! What a wonderful and enchanting place to be! Anne, your artistic talent is evident and I love all of your works. The painting of Snoopy on his dog house brought back fond memories of me drawing him and Charlie Brown (and the rest of the crew)...one of my favs growing up!

BTW...what a great blog you have, too!

mannafig: thanks! I'm partial to horses, myself ;)
Eileen724: glad you stopped by; thank you for the kind words :)


Amid the whirlwind of stuff and things, there's always a little art to be had :) Here we have a little (local) team spirit, a little Lolcatz, and a little blues :cool: -- inspired by Over the Rhine's song "Trumpet Child (http://www.overtherhine.com/cd18_lyrics.php)":

The trumpet child will blow his horn
Will blast the sky till it’s reborn
With Gabriel’s power and Satchmo’s grace
He will surprise the human race.

Love the one with the cupcake especially. . . as if in answer to Mannafig's pin-ups with the little doggie.

Great pose. Very much a personality shining through. Great style(s).
