lots of pics and unexpected love

i’m still struggling to find the best way to photograph him, but here are some shots of the newly finished pestilence!

when i first conceptualized the characters, i saw plague and pestilence as at least companions (but not necessarily lovers), but as i worked on pestilence he started to feel really old and i started to see him more as plague’s mentor… and that held true until i finished painting him.

suddenly the old guy felt a lot younger, more mischievous, and much to my surprise, more loving and devoted to plague… who in her own right surprised me by towering over him…

and i also promised to share some of the sketching i’d been doing… but then i couldn’t remember what all i had done lately and so i just took pics of these four i’ve done in the last week or so –

i didn’t realize it had been so long since my last post…

but truth is, i AM working on stuff. i am nearly finished sculpting two dolls that i hope to have up for sale at the end of the month, and i’ve just finished priming pestilence and hope to start painting him tomorrow. i also found some possible sticks for him.

i’ve also been doing a lot of drawing, though i don’t have any actual *finished* pieces, but i’m doodling lots of ideas for later on when i have more time (right now focusing on sculpting. again… )

and on top of all of that, i still have various animal issues to be taken care of (this summer has been an expensive one, vet wise… and we’re still dealing with some new issues that have come up.)

anyway – i hope to have more pictures coming soon! just bear with me – it’s not the first time i’ve gone silent and come back with some fantastic things, right ~_^;


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
