Fantasy Coloring Books for (so-called) Grown-ups

This is a bit belated - but I thought I should let everyone know that there’s a Kickstarter for coloring books printed by Ellen Million going on.

How is that relevant? Well - my work is available in two of their reprints, Rum and Ruffians and Steam Dreaming. Rum and Ruffians features two of my pieces, a swashbuckling man and a lady pirate and a monkey. Steam Dreaming features another two pieces, this time a steampunk mermaid and a “poster” of a fanciful train, a gentleman, a girl with a giant wrench, an exotic young prince and his… robot monkey. Hmm. I didn’t notice the theme until now - I’ll need to remember that for future submissions. ;)

Rum and Ruffians has sold out of the print copies as of this post, but you might be able to pick up PDF copies. (EDIT: Doesn’t seem to be available as a PDF, but if you were really interested, you could always ask very nicely, and maybe Ellen Million will be able to?) Steam Dreaming still has a double-handful left of the reprint and is available as a PDF.

If you miss out on the Kickstarter, you can find a link to Ellen Million’s Coloring Book offerings here. You can always find that link by clicking the “Buy my art!" link on my Sketchblog. :)

Fashionable Lady Italy (and her pups)

Over on Menewsha, I’ve challenged artists to take a map of a country, city, state; etc and treat it like a shape challenge to make a character or characters (human or animal).

I took up the challenge of Italy, so here we have an Art Deco and Art Nouveau influenced lady with her terriers. The pattern on her coat was directly influenced by a pendant by René Lalique.

Kyden
Another piece for Seito - this time one of the more villainous of her characters, Kyden. He was a lot of fun!I learned some interesting things about markers trying the shading. Unfortunately, I lost many of the highlights (they just look white, rather than pale yellow).Oh, and PS:  I used this photo as reference for the pose.

Nature Spirit RuneOlder sketches of my character Rune as a nature spirit. Found them the other day and realized I’ve never scanned them. As his internal nature is mostly water with a bit of plant (so willows, water lilies; etc listen to him just as well as fish and frogs), his outfit colors are along those lines. His hair, iirc, is pale, new-leaf green rather than its usual pale yellow.

Luitger-Maël Bertrand
Mein/Iro’s character, Luitger! He’s a semi-steampunkish magic/tech engineer. I didn’t mean to make his shirt yellow, but it ended up working regardless.Really happy with his hair (which is possibly too long now that I look at the reference again D: ) and his blue-hazel eyes. :3

Hello there!

I’m opening up commissions for a short time- full color chibi or portraits (any shading type) to help fund a trip to AWA (Sept. 26th to 28th) this year! I roughly need $325 to make this happen (badge =~$50-65; hotel room=~ $260). 

GIVEAWAY:

To help thank those who both follow me and reblog this post, those individuals will be entered into drawing for a free chibi/portrait! ***Entry cut off date: Sept 17th- you’ve got time!***

Entries for the giveaway will be gathered, numbered, and picked at random by a number generator. If I get over 5 commissions, I’ll do another free art for a second lucky winner. Over 10, I’ll pick a third winner! The winner(s) will be selected around Sept 18th. Make sure you have your asks box open so I can contact ya, yeh? :d  

I sincerely appreciate anyone who helps me in any way to reach my goal!
