Select commissions from NDK! Thanks for the support, folks! The con was super fun, and I hope I’ll be back next year. I can’t believe I did twenty commissions, including one with a complete interior. *o*…
Also, I’ll be at Rose City Comic Con next week if you want to pick something up! Let me know if you have suggestions for visiting Vancouver, BC or Portland, OR!
”..the problem with wanting is that it makes us weak…”
Aleksander Morozova, the Darkling from the Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo. All of Leigh’s characters are great, but I love a sympathetic villain.
Companion piece to Alina Starkov (which I gave to Leigh at a signing, and that was an awesome night!).
Haha, I hope you didn’t think I was done with this series.

Vin, Elend, Straff, and Ore’seur from Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn. Finished my final project for my Character Design class with Jose Lopez. Woo!
The development pages should be relatively self-explanatory, but I tried to keep a unified design and color theme as ascribed in the books (black mistcloaks, white royal attire, red skies). The overall style is meant to be like an action cartoon rather than my usual illustrative one.
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.
…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.

“You know nothing, Jon Snow.”
Ygritte at the hot springs. Hehehe.
My tribute to Kvothe, the precocious protagonist from Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicle (The Name of the Wind, The Wise Man’s Fear).
Finally been at home long enough scan this. I’ve decided to stick only to fanart of books lately. *shrug*
Quick doodle of
my ideal boyfriend Peter Parker setting up some shots for the Daily Bugle. Gotta make that dough somehow.
Quickie doodle of Bast, my favorite character from Patrick Rothfuss’s Kingkiller Chronicle.Doesn’t totally look like how I imagine him, though, so I might do it again.
Sherlock is back! *screams*
