Still Feudal, Less Angry…

I’m hoping JRD likes this head better. It’s still pretty feudal, but a little less angry.

Maybe it’s because he doesn’t walk the path of Meifumado.

I hear it can be rough.

Floating Head #…? What number are we on?

As promised, I have scanned my new floating head for JRD.

Hope it’s feudal enough for him.

Random Head

JRD has hijacked my agenda. Not that mind, however. It gives me something to do.

He promoted my site in a recent episode of Flash Pulp, but in doing so also gave me an unspoken challenge. Rather than plainly trying to sabotage my narration with tongue twisters (as he has wont to do on previous occasions),  he basically strung together a nonsensical series of words in the hopes that they would arouse some sort of inspiration in me and prompt me into making a piece solely in response to the ad.  A dastardly act of cunning, as he knew I would be unable to resist the provocation.

I have indeed sketched something inspired by the crazy disconcerted remark (“A rainbow nightmare filtered through the storming rage of a feral teddy bear.“- for those of you who didn’t hear it), but it lacks colour and definition at the moment and will have to be posted at a later date.

Instead, let me leave you with another little project I’ve done for my beloved.
He recently asked me to make him a new avatar – less comic-y than the last image, but not “too” realistic.

Here’s what I came up with.

It’s Meeeee!

I just got my floating head inked (finally). Ta-Da!

Floating Heads

So I promised I’d put up some work today. I have a few small cartoon renderings of people that I’ve been working at on and off for the last few days. Initially, my husband (JRD Skinner – the brilliant writer of blog of fiction) had asked me to create a comic avatar for him. Once that was completed, he requested that I make one for our lovely wife, May (of Maytunes). I figured I may as well make one for myself, too, so I got down to sketching.

After a conference with my models and a slight readjustment to May’s comic hair, everything seems to be in order. The sketchs I’m posting are the rough drafts of the comics I did of May & I. I have to admit that I kinda cheated when doing the sketch of Mr. Skinner. I drew that piece using his tablet laptop and photoshop, so i don’t have a rough draft to show you of that one.
Really, I had been hoping to fiddle with both of these images before posting them here, but I just don’t think it’s in the cards for today. Besides, now you can all be impressed when I get it touched up in photoshop and it looks much nicer.
