Had an itch to  sketch some fennekins. I notice that they got gradually less cutesy the further I went, I think some of these may be on the verge of evolving :D
Would like to eventually do a painting with all three stages, but haven’t quite worked out how to draw Delphox so it looks a little less like a fox in a dress.

An idea I’ve been bumping around with for a few days. In short, a dragon needs to hibernate every so often to recharge their magic and if they don’t bad things happen.

Now I gotta spend the rest of today cleaning up the aftermath from making that mask ;A;
The mess in the photos is only a small portion of it >.>

This is the finished dragon mask that I made to wear at Oz Comic-Con :D 
Quite happy with how it turned out, not bad for a first try. And now I have a few ideas for what I can do differently if I want to try again. Like having more foam padding under the eyes inside, because it was comfy to wear at first, but I noticed that it was starting to cut in under my eye after a while of wearing it. Aside from that it sit pretty well on.
Next job it to work out how to fit my old glasses lenses into it so I can actually see. I can see well enough without to not bump into things, and make sure I go home with the right group of people but it makes trying to actually look at something a bit of a pain. 

There is a cloak thing and a tail that goes with it, but I gotta get some less blurry photos first. And I may already have plans to remake them somewhat, because for the cloak at least, it ended up being a lot more awkward to wear than I’d expected. 

But now that all that’s done, at least until I start tweaking things for Armageddon in october (because it would seem I am incapable of letting things be) I actually have time to get back to work on everything that got put on hold. 

Apologies for both the photo quality and the state of my kitchen -.-
Mask itself was cast with Smooth-On 300 resin, horns were foam/paper mache/paperclay/willpower. Everything painted with acrylics, and one disaster with spray paint that shall not be repeated or spoken of ever again.

Art of some sort soon! Promise! This is just a little life/projects update.

Actually got a few things on the go at the moment.

The big thing I’m working on at the moment is a dragon costume for OzComicon. Because I can’t do any thing small for the first time I try something, I’m making a resin mask and a wing/cloak thing to go with it :D
I’ve just finished putting layers of silicone on the original sculpt.

Bad phone photo is bad -.- 
Think I am very much incapable of doing anything simple, but its going to be awesome when its done. Photo was after the first layer, so can still see all the detail on the sculpt underneath.

I’m still working on finishing sketched pages for a personal webcomic thing that I’m still unsure if I’m going to post anywhere or not. The first section is pretty self contained, I’m thinking that once I’ve finished the pages for that then if I can get the anxiety over it under control I can start posting those and see how it goes. 
As well as that, I’ve been writing up the story for what happens after that first bit. For some convoluted reason, it seemed like the best course of action to write it out in an actual story format instead of just dot-point planning. Mainly so I could shuffle things around and make sure everything makes sense before I try drawing it. 

I got around to starting a blastoise family painting, once I finally noticed that I was missing it and didn’t have a full set of gen1 starter paintings. Its still in progress. 


Got another small comic thing in the works as well, just five pages long. And with this one I have every intention of posting it here once its done. Been thinking that something I might like to do in future would be small runs of booklets or zines or something (which why I started the small comic in the first place) just thinking that it would have said comic in it, and probably just sketches and stuff. If I can get my shit together to start doing markets again. And maybe even an etsy shop! 

Think I’ve probably rambled on enough by now. Gonna try (yet again) to update a bit regularly. 

Hopefully I didn’t sound like too much of a lunatic if you read all the way to the bottom!

A smaller species of sailsnake, that has adapted to live in jungles/dense forests. The namesake sails have evolved into spikes instead to allow for easier movement through dense vegetation. 

Guess this could be a speed paint?
Something I did while attempting to relax. Failed at the relaxing part, but at least I painted something..

Greyscale painting that I splashed some colour on top of.

A concept for an idea I had floating around. Was thinking of a ‘what if?’ where a strain of naturally evolved dragons (as opposed to the ‘magic’ sentient ones) followed a similar evolutionary path to humans. 
They’d be cave based hunter/gatherer types, and fill a similar niche to dwarves in other fantasy things. 
Also found a way to use overlay/saturation layer modes :D

WIP
Not really in relation to anything in particular, but there will probably be info when I eventually post a finished painting :D

Just a warm up doodle before getting on with other stuff.

((Hopefully tumblr won’t display the image weirdly, just cause its kinda long))
All of my season dragon designs together :D The main reason for doing these in the first place was because I was puddling around with the idea of my headworld dragons “original” religion/spirituality being based around the cycle of the seasons, and each of the dragon’s different elements being grouped under one of these. So a dragon with a fire element would be ‘a child of summer.’ Theres some overlap with some elements being tied to more than one season, so those dragons could pick the title they feel closest to. 
Only got the bare bones worked out, but thats the gist of it.


Autumn
Dry leaves rustle on ground as a cooling breeze sweeps through them. There is a feeling of change in the air as the world settles to sleep. You feel calm and restful. 

Winter
Frost on the grass crackles underfoot. Your breath comes out in clouds and you shudder, chilled to the core. You imagine iced over lakes and freezing depths. You fight the urge to lay down and sleep. 

Spring
The grass seems to be curling around your ankles as you approach. You feel refreshed. A lot of the detail in the stone carving is obscured by leaves. There a cracks in the stone where vines have grown and taken hold. 

Summer
An intense wave of heat washes over you as you approach the tablet. Embers crackle and pop at the base. You are reminded of dry grassy fields, and deep blue skies marred with plumes of smoke and haze.
