A rhyme... varying degrees of completion.

Take care.

Walking with the Angels...

...running from the Devil.

SUPER MESSY sketch that I did for Mr. TWulf's ( sketch trade. I did a sketch of his same character, 99, for him some time ago. At the time I did it, I thought it was pretty awesome. Now, I look at it in shame. Let it be known that I'm a lot better at drawing.

There's only one way to draw her, really. And that's to draw her as a badass. So, I did the most badass thing I could: I put her in heavy metal/biker clothes and added a cello. Her makeup kind of reminds me of Doro and, oddly enough, Perttu Kivilaakso, so I kind of threw the two together.

Uhhhh, what else? No one will ask me to design jewelry for them any time soon. Hands are a little funky. But, whatever! I really like this. It's definitely an improvement on the last one, that's fo' sho!

That cello gave me cancer A MILLION PROBLEMS. It's still really weird. I may do a little more shading and update this later.

The Monsters!

Just something cute from my notebook. A revisited self portrait and all of my bedfellows. Yes, I still sleep with dolls and stuffed animals.

And, in case you're wondering, yes, I also have an imaginary friend.

Take care.

Here he is! Constructed with nothing but Dio-era Black Sabbath playing on my iPod. Then, I turned around too quickly and my iPod fell on the floor and now it's broken and I'm irritable all day. I just got all this Norwegian rock that I wanna listen to...

ANYWAY, this piece is very precious to me for a number of reasons, but the one I'll share with you is this is the first piece I've made that I signed "Allison 1710;" a nickname inspired by my coach. It's who I am.

The final composition was patched together in Photoshop because it's too big for the scanner, so ignore any messy little bits where I tried my best to hide my shame. did this go? Pencils, spray fixative, acrylic, watercolor, and ink.

Take care.

The Last One...

A proper scan. This is his final stage before getting a thin, THIN coat of sepia washes and probably some splatter texture that I am so fond of.

Love him well!

Take care.
