Daily Creativity: Celtic Circles

Daily Creativity: Celtic CirclesDaily Creativity: Celtic Circles

I painted this back in December but couldn’t share it until later because it was part of an Epiphany present for my brother. He’s very connected to celtic imagery so I thought this would be a neat idea. When I was drawing this I was trying to get the two circles to look like they were orbiting each other. It’s a bit abstract, but to me this is my brother and his wife, they are perfect for each other, they share their celtic activities and I wanted to express that in a symbolic way. I highly doubt anyone would see that in this image, not even him. This is a watercolor mixed with a bit of ink outlining.

Penquinaut! A Penguin steampunk astronaut who knits is Not a Daily Creativity

Penquinaut! This Penguin steampunk astronaut who knits is not a Daily CreativityPenquinaut! This Penguin steampunk astronaut who knits is not a Daily Creativity

This is a commission and so it wasn’t a Daily Creativity, meaning I spent less than a day on the piece, this piece I spent a lot more time on. I made this for someone who was part of a knitting team on ravelry. There were certain themes to follow, like their team name, and then adding knitting to it, and finally a touch of steampunk to reflect the personality of the person. I had a few sketches and ideas and ended up picking this design. I mixed media here, using masking, water color, ink, and pencil, to create the depth that I was looking for. My goal was rich colors to really flesh out this design. Also, if the planet the penguin is standing on looks familiar and you’re a fan of the Little Prince books, there is a reason for that. I placed the penguin on the Little Prince’s planet on purpose. It wasn’t part of the commission, that was just something that worked for me. By the time this posts the physical art will be in her hands, she’s had the digital for months.

Daily Creativity: Intro to Ghibli show art

Daily Creativity: Intro to GhibliDaily Creativity: Intro to Ghibli show art

I made this for a new segment on Nutty Bites, Intro to Ghibli, where Jen, Jason, Tek, and myself explore the studio Ghibli movies. I drew the four of us with a Totoro surrounded by soot sprites. Because why not? The Totoro has become iconic of the studio and the soot sprites are everywhere. While I’m still unspoiled for most of the movies, I haven’t been living under a rock, so I know this, plus Totoro was the first movie we covered.

I drew this with blending markers on some really nice marker paper that doesn’t absorb and spread the ink. It really makes things pop. I love it. Wish I had it in more sizes. I’m pretty happy with how this came out. I used photos of us from various Balticons for reference. I think I did the worst on myself, I have a hard time capturing myself, but think I did amazingly well on Jen. Yet Tek says he thinks I did the best on myself, so what do I know. Tek was easy, if you remember the short lived web comic I did eons ago, Picnic Kids, he looks a lot like that. What do you think?
