Hello hello! I know, I’ve been terrible with my updates. I started working about 3-4 weeks ago and am just now getting back in the groove of drawing and posting . This one is pretty short since I haven’t actually be doing much drawing, but the up coming deadline in May for my newest part in the Sketchbook Project has kicked me back into gear, so I’ll be posting those sketches shortly since I’ve only got 3 pages left to fill. 

The first image is just a silly something I did after having “Whole New World” stuck in my head all day long. 

Next is my little informational ref I did for T’Reiya, just so I could keep track mostly of her birthday to make sure the year was right for the timeline. It also got me to do research on the Vulcan calender, so her birthday is actually listed as a Vulcan month. 

Then another little T’Reiya doodle, this time with her tricorder, scanning something for one thing or another. 

Mermaids, I always seem to go back to them at some point. They’re just so darn fun, with the flowy underwater hair, and the tails. It was a nice warm up to try to get myself back into drawing with something a little more free flowing. 

And last, is Sailor Chibi Moon from Sailor Moon. Even though I rather dislike her in the show she seems to pop up in my sketchbook from time to time. I think its the hair, just so weird and awesome. 

Sadly that is all I have for you tonight. Once I finish up my Sketchbook Project I will post that WHOLE thing.

Hey guys! Its been a little while since I posted from my personal sketchbook, but I had been working on my Sketchbook Project to get it done in time for the deadline. So here for you I have a sample of some of the sketches I’ve been doing over the past month or so. 

First up isn’t a sketch at all. I did this little finished piece for my Thank You cards this year. 

Next is a redo of a piece I was fond of for years that I created in highschool. I’d like to color this and post it again along side the original. I referenced the pose from here: http://sitara-leotastock.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=sword#/d2jeqc7

I seem to be doing more pages like this, a compilation of small doodley pieces instead of having one or two pieces that fill the page. This one is full of ponies. I did these on my 8 hour bus ride back from Christmas with my family. 

The next one is a little fan art doodle for a super cute kitty named BUB. She’s pretty darn adorable, so you should go check out her page: http://lilbub.com/

Another page of doodley doodles! This time its T’Reiya. I was trying out different ways of drawing her and still trying to retain her features. Other thenn the chibi. ^_^

This big sketch is for a commission for someone in my hometown. She works in the town office and likes to display art from local artists. She wants a street in town being invaded with zombies. This is still pretty rough, I need to find better references from the street of the buildings and such. 

Lastly I’ve got some childhood going on with a page full of Sonic and Tails. I went with the more 90’s style of them instead of the ‘newer’ versions  since its what I grew up with. These started out as a sort of redraw of a piece I did in 94. Sonic and his strange mono-eye gave me some issues, so I’ll have to try again. Can’t forget Knuckles down at the bottom! 

That is all I have for you guys today! I haven’t drawn much in the past week or so since I’ve pretty much been job hunting, filling out a million applications and driving around bothering people and places where I have dropped off applications. No luck yet, but hopefully something turns up soon.

Hello! Got another post for you all!

First up are some doodles I did from stock images found here: http://daestock.deviantart.com/

Second is a squishy little something I did for Addison. Hopefully I’ll get it colored in the near future. 

Next is my wolf-taur Nameless who tends not to get enough love. But after watching a documentary about a couple creating a wild wolf pack and living among them I couldn’t help but do something with wolves in it. 

This giant page of stuff is my next big project, an ABC book full of highly endangered animals. On the left is my list of animals and then of course the right is most of the animals. Some of the ones that were a little harder to make into headshots, such as the whales aren’t on my giant doodle page. I will get them scribbled down here soon. Also! I’m in need of some help! I tried and looked for a long while and yet could not come up with any endangered animals that started with X or U, so if you know of any please let me know! They MUST be endangered. 

Lastly would be another wolf. Because wolves are awesome. 

That’s all I’ve got tonight!

So at First Friday I had someone interested in custom buttons. They sent me an email saying they wanted 4 of the 6 characters from My Little Pony! Anyone that’s been on my blog knows that I love this show, so I’m pretty excited! I haven’t drawn any of the characters from the show other then Derpy, since fanart isn’t really my thing for some odd reason. These are my rough sketches I sent out to be approved by the commissioner. If it all looks good these guys will be inked, colored and made into one of a kind buttons! Totally in love with this commission.

So its been a while since I posted on here! I was in NYC last weekend with my family, which was totally amazing! When I came back my desktop power supply decided to die so I’ve been using my laptop again until I can get another power supply. I have been sketching however, hence why I am here tonight! 

First is a little piece I’m working on for my aunt, who just discovered she has breast cancer and sadly had to have one of her breasts completely removed. I know she really loves cats and can’t have one in her current living situation so I’m hoping some cute little kittens might cheer her up a little bit. 

So I’ve been a little obsessed with this magical little show called Avatar the Last Airbender since it came out when I was in highschool (man I feel old!) They finally made a new series based off the same universe called the Legend of Korra. I’ve been milling around with the idea of an OC for that universe but could never come up with a deign I really liked. I think I’ve got one that going to stick so I’ve been drawing her like mad. She’s a firebender but prefers to use lightning. I referenced this stock image: http://browse.deviantart.com/?order=9&q=fighter+stock&offset=0#/d2hzfko with some slight adjustments. 

Next is another sketch of the my Avatar OC referenced from this stock image: http://sitara-leotastock.deviantart.com/gallery/622358?offset=144#/d133682

Yup, her again. Just a squishy chibi because they’re awesome. 

My Avatar OC and another one that I’m working on based on my love Addison. Referenced from this screen shot from the show: http://images.wikia.com/avatar/images/7/7e/Korra_breaking_down.png

Her again, being awesome, bending lightning. 

The next sketch is a better view of the Earthbender character I’m working on.

Ah yes, my Trek OC T’Reiya. This is just a front and back view of her. I’m actually rather proud of this sketch.  

I found this meme that challenged you to put one of your characters into different outfits, so it seemed only fitting to use T’Reiya for it. This was for Halloween. She’s so unimpressed with the whole get up. 

I think that’s all of them. Now that its 2am I’m going to bed!

So this post is huge. I haven’t scanned my sketchbook in about a month, so I picked some of the better doodles to share tonight.

The first one is an Avatar (TLoK) OC that’s I’ve been fiddling with in my head for a long time.

Next is the sketch for a painting I did of Swiftwind from She-Ra for a Thundercats vs He-man themed art show a local comic book shop is putting on.

Then there is a really sribbley mess of a doodle I did of my Thundercats (2011) OC named Blynx, or B for short.

I decided it was probably a good idea to attempt to broaden my style a little and try drawing a larger female body type. Why is she a mermaid? Because they’re awesome that’s why.

Along the same lines as before, but this time with men. I NEVER drawn men, ever. so I took a night and did nothing but draw guys. I had another page but the models I was looking at were nude, so I left it out. Trying to keep this place SFW.

I’m not a big DC fan, however I did rock a Catwoman birthday party when I was like 6. This little doodle was inspired by another tumblr called Escher Girls, which is dedicated to comic book women in really messed up, broken or overly sexual poses.

And finally Mew, because, well why not? He’s just so darn cute!
