Our apartment suffered flooding, last week. 

Thankfully, no possession of ours was destroyed.  The water came down from the fourth floor, all into the drywall and ceiling of our unit on the second floor; and because the walls were soaked, we had to evacuate with only a few hours of notice.  And while the move was traumatic, (mostly for my spoiled princess of a kitty,) the most traumatizing thing for me was that while no large pieces of our furniture or electronics were drenched, the water coming from upstairs ran off the dining room light fixture and flooded the table.  This means that the craft projects I was working on were saturated and ruined, AND ALSO MY MARKER WORKBOOK.  So, the last few years worth of physical drawings are all bled and stained and deformed.  I have to say, however, thanks to deviantART, almost all of the finished works are here, so while the hard copies are heartbreakingly mangled, there are digital copies. 

Has anybody else experienced a similar trauma, where your hard work has been ravaged?  I would love to share my pain, by sympathizing with yours!

The title tells all. 

I whipped this off to put on display with an artist blurb, next to the "Hotness" picture at the auction table.  Just in case someone was interested in seeing more of my doodles.  This is supposed to be somewhat of a self portrait, but as usual I have trouble making ladies look big, so the cartoon me isn't as large as she should be, nor are my boobs big enough. 

Copics, white gel pen, Prismacolor pencils, Sakura fineliner, smooth Bristol ATC.

Hotness by blightedangel
Hotness
Heavy reference used!  In fact, we can say I pretty much copied a photograph by the wonderful Powder Puff Vixen Photography.  I took a few liberties here and there, mainly with the garments, but the credit for the pose and lighting go entirely to them.  And of course, to the spectacular model.  I did make sure to get permission from both, for use of the original image. 

I am donating this drawing to a group of local burlesque performers, who are raising some coin to get to Burlycon this year.  I am so glad I took this project on, for so many reasons!  I feel like I really used the reference material well, and what started out being a dauntingly challenging pose became a great learning experience. 

Please check out Powder Puff Vixen Photography, especially if you live on the Island and want to have glamorous pinup pictures done!  Their work is gorgeous.  www.facebook.com/pages/Powder-…

Copics, white gel pen, sakura fineliners, Prismacolor pencils, as usual.

Fallen Angel
Commission piece for djmonolith.  A portrait in markers of one of his self portraits.  Not gonna lie, I am so very proud of this piece!  Especially the hair.  My goodness, do I love drawing hair. 

The strangest thing happened to me while deciding which photograph to reproduce.  I kept thinking about Traci Lords, and I couldn't get her music out of my head.  I loved the thought of DJ Monolith as a fallen angel, being a part of both worlds; because he sorta is. 

Copics, white gel pen, Prismacolor pencils, Sakura fineliner.

The scan is dark because apparently I sketched really softly, and half the lines didn't want to show up.

I LOVE LOVE your gallery.  Your blending, color choices and backgrounds are just gorgeous! Rather than sit and openly blab about every single thing about your gallery I loved, I'm just going to be a stalker now. . er. . watcher now.  Yes, a  watcher.  ^-^

Hi there, I was just wondering if you would be okay with me colouring this lineart version of your character?
