Another artist gave me the idea for practicing this way.  I've been wanting to explore more brushes, colors, and techniques, and this gave me the opportunity to do that.

A Grim Christmas

Even the Grim Reaper enjoys Christmas....
In fact, he is very festive and takes part in many holiday traditions and seasonal activities.  He is also, obviously a very big fan of Santa and looks forward to Christmas every year.  So don't be worried or frightened if he shows up at your door during the month of December, he is simply out caroling.

I've been doing Christmas differently this year with a "black" theme, and these are two sketches based on that theme.  These were immensely fun to draw.  I think I was giggling the entire time. 
Merry Christmas to all!

Creature design sketching

Above are two new creature sketches combined on a single page with an older creature sketch.  I thought my old creature was lonely and needed some friends since it's just a sketch.  The two additions were created simultaneously and I tried to design each one for different environments, but keeping to possibly the same world.  Creature design is one of my favorite things to do as it combines my love of animals with imagination and art.

Another Illustration

Just another illustration for Lamp light media.

I've been reading and learning a lot lately which gets me excited about the future.  I've scrapped some projects, set out some goals for new work, as well as learning some new techniques.  I'm happiest when I'm learning something new and improving my skills.  It seems to spark my creative energy more.

I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays.
