☆ 10 Year Challenge | 2019 - 2009 - 1999 | An artwork version of the 10 Year Challenge I guess! As I happened across the 1999-2009 version in my DA gallery the other day - so this is actually a 20 year version!
Instead of just redrawing I wanted to reflect the different choices I would make now with outfit etc...I hope I've improved somewhat in this time, although while drawing this I felt a bit like I haven't much for the last 10 years ^^''' There's a lot more to work on.

Here are the older versions:
Artwork commissions are re-opened finally!
For the first time in a long time I have opened all types of commissions, from comic/manga style character art to caricature commissions and ACEO cards.
You can see the full range here, or check out the links under 'shop' in the menu.

It's March & I've had enough of winter now, so of course I end up drawing a very summery picture with my OC, Minnie!
So, I had sketched this & then I decided to use the picture for my new commission info. I scanned the inks + then printed them out so I had two copies. The second image is my layered ('cell shaded' like) marker colouring style (which I did on the print out, since that wouldn't smudge the ink as much) & the third is my fully blended, mixed media colouring style, which is a lot softer but nicer.
This isn't the usual way I'd do things - if I am going to be colouring a picture, especially in a very blended style or with mixed media I will lay off the heavy/thick inking until after I've coloured. This way there is less chance of smudging the artwork! (& going over your marker colouring with thicker ink lines means you can sneakily fix up any marker bleed...)
INKS | Fineliners + brush pen
SECOND DRAWING | Pro markers + Sharpie marker + triplus pens + white ink (I did blend the sky a little in this case)
THIRD DRAWING | Lots of different marker brands + pencil crayons + triplus pens + white ink

I quite often draw little cartoon 'self portraits' to go on various websites I use - thought I would collect them in one place!

ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals and are an excellent way of building your own, affordable, little art collection. (Sometimes also called ATC = Artist Trading Cards)
The only real 'rule' is that they are trading card sized - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
I first started making art cards in 2010 & have made them on & off ever since. They are a lot of fun to make & the card size makes it a challenge...

Something I was playing around with in my sketch book earlier this week :)

★Happy 26th Birthday to Sonic the Hedgehog!★
Hopefully he can slow down enough to have some cake!
I almost didn't get this done in time, so it's just a simple picture. I am also super rusty at drawing Sonic -_-

Between 2011-2012 I worked on some of 5Finity's licensed sketch card sets. These are all drawn on 2.5 x 3.5 inch trading cards using markers, finliners, brush pens + gel ink pens.
You can find the cards I did in the gallery below, under 'read more'!
I still have a couple of Artist Exclusives for sale (below) (I have now sold all blanks.)
Please contact me if interested!
