Love & Honesty! Peace & Harmony!

Happy New Year!! First pic of the year I felt just had to be my boy Hunter. And since it’s 2018 I imagined what he’d look like at 18 years old. It’s not a far stretch from his age in the comic now (which is 15/16) but literally the day he turns 18 Hunter goes out a gets a new accessory in honor of his mother. Not sure how Ellie would feel about her baby having a big ass hand tattoo but it looks cool doesn’t it? Hunter is such a precious baby with his mop curls and crocked smile. He’s actually an excellent little brother – always supportive of his twin and older sister… even when they fly off the handle. My Huney-bun deserves all the love in the world

Nobody else might notice but it freaks me out how much I actually made him look like his father. He’s like a tan, curly haired John minus the freckles. He’s John all over except for his eyes – all the Breland kids have their mother’s eyes.

Around the World in a Day

Zen20-unfinished

Something I managed to do between cooking and shopping… and talking selfies if you follow me on instagram
Zen partaking in her favorite passtime – reading about her favorite superhero – The Flash. In a TPB of course. Zen loves the Flash because they have the same power and people love him. See Zen live in a world where people hate super powered people. She may be a speedster but she runs knowing she’s one step away from being locked in a jail cell for the rest of her life. But it doesn’t keep her from using her powers. Her mother taught her not live in fear. To be who she is no matter what. And Zen takes pride in the fact that no one can catch her. She can make it around the world in a day…

I wanted to add something else to this but I noticed too late that the perspective is off  Still love it cause look at that beautiful face.

Happy Halloween

EmilandKiddo22-unfinished

Oh poor Emil – he’s not at all prepared to have such a sexy girlfriend. Thought of this yesterday – what would the crew of the I.T. bar dress up like for halloween. Well Emil’s go-to costume it of course a vampire. He already has the widows peak and naturally big, pointy teeth and he’s just so freakin pale. In fact a lot of people have noted his similarity to my actually vampire character Samael. I ended up using nearly the same color palette when creating them they are actually not related at all. Anyway, when Emil tells Kiddo that their couples costume should be vampires Kiddo knew exactly how to get his goat. She dressed up like the classic comic femme fatale: Vampirella. LOL

Happy Halloween from the crew of I.T

Starfish and Coffee

Del24-unifinished

It’s what she had for breakfast. LOL

After that Kiddo picture nearly killed me I wanted to do something simpler and Del was next in the rotation. Haven’t drawn a portrait of the boss lady in a minute and she has such pretty eyes. Del’s appearance is based off of Lisa Edelstein (Dr. Cuddy from House) and she has an amazing smile. Check it out in the ref I used for this: pin.it/hxkiHWT Even tho I kept this simple it still took me 8 hours. Mostly fiddling with that lace and the coffee mug design – it originally had words on it but since her hand blocked most of it I went with cracked ceramic design but it seemed too gloomy and I imagine Del’s coffee mugs are very cutesy because Zen buys them for her so I landed on pink and hearts 🙂

My precious little Della Rae… she can toss a car with her pinky. I love her ❤

Beginning Endlessly

Kiddo27-unfinished

‘A brand new story in the making’

Just in case you forgot that Kiddo is a morning person. She’s basically a ball of energy so as soon as the sun starts to come up she’s there to see it. I’m stinking this is still the view from her grandfather’s penthouse. Unlike Emil – she actually enjoys being up high and getting a good view of what’s below. She doesn’t fear falling cause she can fly. Now, who do you think she’s looking back at with such a cute smile?

This. Took. FOREVER!! If you follow my twitter or intagram you can see I’ve been working on this since for four days! Today I had to just let it be the way it was. Everything I kept added didn’t look right so I was like “Well, it must be done then.” – AND I EFFING LOVE IT!!! Normally I don’t brag but look at this! Look at this shit here! This is everything I am capable of at the moment. I used everything I know about drawing to make this and I am in love with it. I originally had clouds but they were too busy so I switched to a clear sky. I might add her little potted lily to this.

Arboretum

Sonya26-unfinished

Sonya loves to fly. And she loves fall weather. I’ve stated before that she has a vast collection of cute socks and leggins and the fall is the perfect time to wear them. I’m very much like her in that respect – I actually have a purple pair of socks with little pom-poms on them but my animal print leggins are tiger striped, not leopard print 🙂 I liked her socks so much I left off her shoes! Just pretend she left them somewhere on that path below her. So if you see a random pair of boots in an Arboretum look up! There might be a psychic girl flying over head.

I’ve recently been told that my art is boring… Anons on tumblr are such helpful critics ain’t they? I assumed it was just some immature tool trolling me or some disgruntled novice. Either way, I accepted it as a challenge to be more dynamic with my work. Looking back I had fallen into a ‘portrait’ rut (everything was from the waist up, gradient background, 3/4 view, etc) and from now on I’m gonna flex to my abilities to the fullest extent. I looked up a ref for the background and doing simple things like added reflections on the water, diversity of the tree foliage, use of the blur etc – vastly improved the look.

If I Was Your Girlfriend

DelandZen24-unfinished

“I wanna be all of the things you are to me”

Good Lord I’ve been trying to finish this for a month. I sketched this out a while back and it kept getting pushed back by the comic. I first sketched Zen by herself wearing those pants back in January I think. And I spotted the perfect heels for Del just earlier today so got it done finally.

I always love the fact the tiny little Del is this super strong badass. Lifting her 5’9 girlfriend with ease. They are so precious – I’ve been thinking about how they actually meet in the comics. I had an old scenario but that’s null and void seeing how they’re not secret agents anymore. I’m thinking it’s after Del opens the bar and Zen comes in looking for a job. Del at the time is not being completely honest with herself and proceeds to be super awkward around Zen while she tries to get a handle on how she feels. Cause let’s face it, Zen is a freakin Goddess – long wavy hair, plump lips, thick runners thighs. Zen obviously sees Del’s confusion and makes the first move… yup she kisses her boss cause Zen don’t give a crap about what might have happened if she read the signals wrong. LOL
