Did you learn this style?

Kind of? I learned a lot of techniques and facial anatomy, but the choices I made when designing/exaggerating the faces were based off things I’d seen and liked in cartoons.

Had quite an adventure last night: went out to dinner somewhere unreasonably far and came back with a stray cat. She was so loving!  Just kneaded my friend’s lap through the hour-long car ride.  

We’re taking her to the shelter today to see if she’s healthy and/or lost.  But if she’s really a stray - if you’re in the LA area and you’re interested in giving her a home, let me know! (… or I might just get her, omg, she’s so nice.)

EDIT: She’s not chipped.  Complete stray stray. She’ll be up for adoption in five days if she’s healthy.  We’re calling her Poutine.

So many feels after #sdcc ! Hung out a lot with the Ready at Dawn guys, so I doodled #isabeau /#igraine from #order1886 while in a Monday meeting.

Genya, David, Tolya, and Tamar from Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.

Haven’t used a mechanical pencil in awhile!  This story has such great secondary characters.

Nilah, Cassie, and I are going to the Fierce Reads Block Party tonight.  Catch me for a free Shadow and Bone doodle  (I have purple hair.)

((If you miss it, I’ll also be at SDCC on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.))

"Long live the King in the North."

You meant well, Robb.  Just a doodle that got out of hand. Might have prints at NDK if people show interest.

Work in progress of the #darkling from the #grisha trilogy. Companion piece to Alina.

The outfits you’re drawing for this are just KILLING ME.  I’m sitting here squirming because I am inspired to sew them and wear them and you are bringing to life my imagination except it is far better. ヽ(^Д^)ノ

Thank you so much, but I have to also give credit where credit is due.  While I did add my own flair, my general silhouettes for Grisha costumes were strongly influenced by prom-knight who is like, basically one of two official illustrators for this series. You really should follow her! Her work is absolutely fantastic!

Actually, her work was what drew me to the series to begin with. ;) Thanks, Irene.

Although, I think if you wore these outfits, me, Irene, and Leigh would all probably die of happy sobbing.

And this one got deleted, too?! Tumblr, why….

…sankta alina… sol koroleva… sun summoner…

My tribute to Alina Starkov from Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy, a fantastic series of YA novels set in a Russian-inspired fantasy world and a lovely magic system.  I wanted to show her power (and the amplifiers!) rising out of the Volcra but also a little fear that comes with being an accidental heroine.

Final installment just came out!  Got mine signed by Leigh at the LA Book Release party. *o*  You should pick em up!

Done in traditional media: pen, marker, color pencil on toned paper (as usual).

leigh, if you are reading this, nilah, cassie and i would all gladly work on a grisha movie *coughcough*

OH. MY. WORD. I can’t tell you how much I adore this. Loved seeing the work in progress at the launch but oohhhhhhhh the final!!! Thank you so much for sharing it <3 

Seriously, Tumblr, are you kidding me, you deleted this one, too?! Re-blogging myself again because Tumblr is a shitface.

1-hour digital painting of Zoya from Leigh Bardugo's Grisha Trilogy.  Done at the request of Nilaffle.

Just finished Ruin and Rising.  I am bombarded with feels, and now I have to draw everyone….

Those lips! Those eyes! Zoya needs her own show. (And this is gorgeous! Ty!!)

Argh, again - I don’t like re-blogging my own work, but Tumblr deleted Zoya, too….

Harshaw (and “Oncat”), my favorite Inferi from Leigh Bardugo's Ruin and Rising.  I had to guess at his eye color a bit.

Nilah didn’t get her booked signed at the launch party, so we be going until the Fierce Reads Block Party!

Can’t stop. Won’t stop.  Gonna be a Grisha week.

HARSHAW!!! First Harshaw and Oncat fanart. Oh I love this so so so much!!!

Ugh. Tumblr deleted my Harshaw post, so now I have to re-blog myself…

korol rezni… the king of scars

Nikolai Lantsov from Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy.  I had to do him justice with a painting, but I’m sure he’s upset that he can’t make his hair all nice now that he’s part shadow-soldier.

I have a thing for rebellious guys with sharp wit and overblown confidence.  But what I really adore about this character is his evolution (although, that’s what I love about all of Bardugo’s characters).  His transformation in Ruin and Rising tests his personality so well, the perfect a blow against his ambition and hubris.

Hi, i was wondering whats the specific name for that special pen (or whatever it is) you use to wet watercolor drawings?

I don’t actually use watercolor, so I’m guessing that you meant the Niji Waterbrush: http://www.dickblick.com/products/niji-waterbrush/
