Some Quickies

Every Tuesday, Ben Chandler and I host #Huesday on Twitter at 21:00 ET, where people of all art skill levels and backgrounds create artwork in one hour or less based on a random theme determined just as the hour starts.  It’s a good way to not only force yourself to practice, but also to have some creative fun–you should join in! Yes, YOU!

Here are some of the entries that I’m particularly fond of, for various reasons ;)

RUST – 1 hour


WEATHER – 30 min 16_30m_weather

QUALITY – 1 hour


THRILL – 15 min24b_thrill

I’m still not very quick, but Huesday has helped me practice getting the important things down first :)

Indie Game Fanart!

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:



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 ;)

Ahoy thar!

Wheee, end of second semester, and two more to go :)

A character design for a bloodthirsty harlot-turned-pirate.  I have more of her, but I like this one best :)

The Lady of Decay

In the heat of summer day
Walks the Lady of Decay.
Her skin is pale like gone-off milk,
Her clothes are made of rotted silk,
Millipedes surround her face,
Her dress is trimmed with dirty lace.
With maggot pet and fungi’d hair,
She parades around the square.
She’s a sight from head to toes,
But whilst you look, hold your nose!
For nothing festers like Decay
In the heat of summer day.

14  colours, and the poem was written spur-of-the-moment when submitting to PixelJoint ;)
