Sketchblog Edition 11: Boom Boom On A Leaf

I love Mondays.
A fresh start to a whole new week.
A chance to use the next seven days fully to your advantage!
I started the week by doing chores around the house, running errands, and sketching, sketching, sketching.

I meant to do this mini-Emily line-up from last week since it was "Wear Your Sister's Hand-Me-Downs" Week for me.
Below you'll see all the shirts/dresses I wore that were all given to me by my sister.

And we all remember what happened on Sunday....

I went to eat lunch with an awesome gentleman, Jeremy Nguyen, at Locos today.
While waiting for him, I drew a napkin.

The whole time we were eating and talking, I came to realize one thing...

I'm a slob.

Today's free sketch goes out to my friend Valerie.
It's her vampire character, Ansen.
Yaaaaaaay face fail. ><
And what's with that bat wing?
I don't know.... Oh well.
At least the hand turned out okay this time. XD
Hope you like it, Val!

I've been thinking more about that Plague Doctors story I've been developing.
(Plague Doctors is just a working title.)
Since it was rats that spread the Black Plague, I decided to make them the nemesies.... nemesi.... neme.......... the antagonists of the story.
I found some really good reference for rat skulls, too!

I really love the look of a rat's skull, so I started playing with working that into the design of the demon-like characters.
Here are a couple concepts.

Last but not least...
Your daily dose of "Angry Tyler."
Ahhh... revenge is sweet.

(In case you didn't get the reference....)

That's all for today!
Pretty full for me, but in the grand scheme of things, fairly uneventful for you, I suppose. XD

Thanks for reading!
Love you all and have a good night and a wonderful week!

p.s. Who else thinks Adventure Time gets better and better with each episode?


  1. Those rat skulls are pretty freaking awesome.
    I think you should upload those on DA.
    they made me want to do a happy dance haha

  2. Haha! Thanks!
    Eventually I'll be uploading some concept stuff for this new project on DA but I think for now I'll leave the sketches on here.
    I'm trying to filter what I put on DA and keep it clean and organized.
    Glad you like it though! ^^
