Just some pixels I made semi-recently :)
The first, a zombie mermaid parody of Venus at Her Mirror by Diego Velazquez that I made for the Secret Santa activity at the Pixelation forum (13 colours):
A sprite of a mechanical elephant made of a barrel, diver’s helmet, pipes, and rubber hoses, done for a pixel joint challenge (15 colours):
And a quick portrait, also done for a pixel joint challenge (15 colours). Not crazy about this one, though I do like parts of it:

A portrait I painted of Pancho, my sister’s little black shih tzu dog. The descriptors are mostly in-jokes ;)
He really does sit like a teddy bear, btw (when he’s being good, or at least acting like he’s being good so that we’ll give him treats ;) )

A few months ago, I was contacted to make some artwork for the Word on the Street book festival. Being a lover of books, I was very excited to take it on… even though it was due the next day ;) To fit different layouts etc., the WOTS designers had to make changes to fonts, layout, and the artwork itself in some cases, but here is my original poster design (the white space was room for sponsors):
Incidentally, I was attacked by a pigeon the next day.

I went to the museum for a little while yesterday and made some sketches. I’m really out of practice and need to do this more! I also forgot all my colour markers except for pink ;)

A picture I made as a gift for Dan of Size Five Games on the event of his wedding to his lovely bride Charlotte :D May all your dino-punching days be splendid!

Woo, I’m on an update roll! School’s almost done, and I’ll be going back on Project Zomboid fulltime :)
I quite like how this one turned out, especially as I did pretty much all of it in one day :) My favourite painting in a while.

The exciting conclusion to the Little Mermaid trilogy! It’s like the other two, but bigger with more explosions! ;)
The castle of the sea king, based on coral. I really tried throughout this project to keep everything very organic.
The Sea Witch’s lair. Once again with the organic origins: her chair is a dolphin skeleton, her cauldron is a giant clam, and the lights are little phosphorescent fish trapped behind films (which you can’t really tell in this picture, but that was the idea behind it ;) )
