Hipster Captain Marvel

I’m not much in the habit of doing fan art any more, but every now and then I just can’t help myself.  I’ve been wanting to do Captain Marvel since she was redesigned, but I never really got to it — until a friend designed a hipster variant that she’s crocheted for a pretty amazing piece of cosplay.  I guess I wanted to celebrate her and her amazing craft more than anything else, so how could I resist?

Nora Valkyrie

Friends of mine have teenage daughters and sometimes those girls ask me to draw things.  If nothing else it keeps me up-to-date on what’s popular out there.  (Otherwise I’d never leave my little hole, I’m rather certain.)

I promised to draw Nora Valkyrie — a character from a web series titled RWBY  — for one of my friend’s daughters if she got caught up on a comic project she’s doing for school.

Cutie Cthulu!

0007 Cthulu

Man! Talk about one from the archives!  This is one of the first pieces I did once upon a time.  I thought I had lost this little wonder but I unearthed it while digging through files deep in my hard drive.  You can see how certain parts of the style have evolved over the past few years.  Moving on…

A friend suggested I draw her as a Cthulu-riddled she-beast and I really couldn’t pass it up.  I mean, who could, really?

Little Miss Airman

0014 Airman Barker

Recently my mother jokingly suggested I do a portrait of her.  Well, I think the joke was more that I should make her look thinner and younger, but I took it and ran with it.  Once upon a time she served in the air force of these United States, and wouldn’t you know it?  I have some pictures from those days.  I don’t think this is what she had in mind when she asked me for a portrait, but I am certain she loves it.

Love you, mom.

I Won’t Make a Sewing Pun. (Again.)

0013 SewCute

A friend of mine can sew (I mean, she can REALLY sew) and this just baffles me because it’s a skill I will likely never posses.  So, what else can I do when I’m completely in awe of something other than draw a picture and hope it comes close to competing with the staggering abilities of my friends?

Blaster Bolt Goes Where?

I’m going to have to have a scanning party soon if I plan on keep pulling from the archives.This time we have a Zabrak sniper a friend plays in a Star Wars RPG.

I don’t know which is worse: the fact that my friend plays a Star Wars RPG or that when she told me she played as a Zabrak sniper not only did I know exactly what she was talking about but I didn’t even have to look up reference to draw this picture.  Oh, and I’m totally jealous she’s playing a Star Wars RPG.
