Some Water-Related Ladies

You know, you look away from your blog for a second, then you look back to clear some spam and you realize it’s been months since you’ve updated and you feel ashamed… or at least, I do ;)

I’m going to try to update this place with some more recent work, but I’ll spread it over a few days. Since these three are on a similar theme, they’ll go together:

“Lady With Lobster on Head”: A pixel piece for the 2013 Secret Santa at Pixelation. 12 colours. I’m showing it at original size, and 2x after the break because I think that’s the size that looks best :)

It's just one of those days.

 

And some quick paintings I did for for daily challenges by Sketch Dailies on Twitter :)  The themes were “Ursula” and “Mermaid”.  Ursula, from a happier, cuter time:

Ursula

 

And a gothy mermaid:

OMG she's nekkid!

Pixelly Post

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):

my first octopus!

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):

The head was originally going to be a fishbowl

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:

there are only 13 pixels of the required emerald colour in there ;)

The Little Mermaid, Part 3

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.

Somewhere, beyond the sea...

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 ;) )

She's the skinnier cousin of Ursula ;)

The Little Mermaid, part 2

Here’s more selections from the Little Mermaid project :)

Character expressions:

Say cheese!

Character poses:

Strike a pose!

Maquette made from super sculpey:

There's also a painted version, but it looks TERRIBLE ;)

Swirl of Eels

Eels!

By the way, I hope when I’m not posting a whole slew of pictures at once that I’ll have more intelligent things to say ;)
