I’ve been looking at a lot of Becca Tobin's art recently, and really wanted to try my hand at her style of washed background. They're a lot of fun, and if you haven't checked out her illustrations yet, you ought to!INTENSE COLOURS ACTIVATE.

I wish there was a magazine called ‘HOT BODS’ in actuality…Inktober-y goodness. I’m actually really happy I’m trying to do something every day, I feel a little more confidant in my ink-work. 

PRACTICE, AM I RIGHT?

I haven’t done fanart in a long while… This is solomonfletcher's character from their comic which you can get OVER HERE. I haven’t read the comic yet (which is why this is not the most accurate fanart), because I just dropped a goodly amount of money on comics at The Beguiling, which is a dangerous place for my wallet. BUT, Solomon’s character design is always AWESOME and when I saw the promo on their blog, I felt compelled to draw them.Next pay I will be loading up on this awesomeness.

Here’s the finished pic! Overall I like it, though I’ll have to remember some things for next time (like, when you’re done with something, BE DONE WITH IT). Cute chubby self-taught butch witches napping in the grass FOR LIFE.

Hey guys! This is a small preview if a mini I made for Zine Dream this year, all about feelin’ bad about your bod! It gets exponentially grosser after this point.

I’ll be at CanZine on the 1st of November, selling this and a BRAND NEW THING for hella cheap! I’ll see you guys there.

Here is a kinda chuddy picture of a WIP I’ve got going on right now! I haven’t used inks in a while, such a blast!

Jebby and I agree, very few lines and so much motion. I really love your art, glad to see it again. :)
