Commission: Flowers for My Lady

A commission I did for someone on Deviant Art.  This is Rufus and Elizabeth from "Kindom Hearts".  I am so grateful to the commissioner who requested a couple, as I love a good challange and it's been a very long while since I drew a happy couple like them.  It was also a challange as I am a little unfamilar with the Video game and manga of "Kindom Hearts", so with all the research I did for these characters, I find that I have a new favorite game to try out!  I still feel that I somehow got the outfits wrong, so it's my hope that the commissoner will love what I did for her.

Done in watercolour pencils, copic ciao markers and ink.  I also added somecolour to the background with CorelDRAW as I hate a really garish white backdrop. ^^

Oh! and also, I thank all of you how came by to leave comments.  I always find that encouraging and love you all for saying such sweet things...have a great week!!

A Vampire Hunter Called "D"

Some fan art of one of my favorite books, manga and anime of all time!  It was this very lovely fellow here that so inspired me to become an illustrator when I was 18.  An old friend of mine at the time had the original 1980's OVA movie in his VHS stash.  I had at that point never heard of Japanese manga or anime, sure I had seen Astro Boy and Simba the White Lion...but I never knew that they were Japanese until I was introduced to Vampire D.

I was Love at first sight...and I have never so loved anything much else since then.  If you're a vampire fan, this is a must see! 

I did this with a Fabercastel Fine liner pen in sepia and it took about a week to finish.  One of my favorite drawings I've done. Enjoy!

Mucha Baby Doll: Gloria

Doll number four in my Mucha Babies paper doll endeavour.  I'll have to make more soon.  I'm going to work on designing more this weekend.  I did plan to have this little lady up August 1...but I had a commission to finish for a friend on Deviant Art, and the poor girl waited so nicely for two weeks for me to finally finish. 

I hope to at least fit in a little boy paper doll as well.  I have some great ideas planed for him...I'm thinking of making the male a little dandy. I love dandies, just cannot help myself. *giggles*

Gloria is available for adoption if any are interested.  I'm still working on setting up an Esty shop.

Have a great week!
