The delightfully creative Daily Bird Beast has put out the call for guest submissions, so I doodled up a creaturely Sunbittern. Beastly bird-monsters? No need to ask me twice.
Sunbitterns are pretty rad birds — when startled, they exhibit a threat display that makes them resemble enormous owl-eyed moths.

Messing around some more with MS5 brushes, and out fell a Naga and Pabu. Really wish they’d go back to double episodes — 22 minutes of Korra a week just ain’t enough.

Work in progress. Posting this while I still like it — I’m always so much happier with my work at the sketch phase than the final product.
EDIT 2014/07/30: Final version! I’m really beginning to love Manga Studio 5’s new brushes.

Couple o’ Korra sketches. I’m really digging Book 3! The Avatar universe has always had so many awesome female characters, and I love that the most badass of this season’s new baddies is a double amputee woman. Glad to see the gang hitting the road as well — I’ve missed the journey narrative that was such a big part of the original series.

I’ve noticed recently that I’ve been approaching my drawings with a ‘fix it in post’ attitude — half-assing things with the expectation that I can just scan it and re-ink it digitally if it goes awry. Been making more of an effort to get by without an undo button and keep things traditional.

Dragonified my parrot. Which, it turns out, isn’t much of a change. Unsurprising, given that I’ve long suspected that I live with some sort of dragon-monkey.

I have a copy of the HTTYD2 art book on my studio bookshelf that I have yet to crack open, as much as new Nico Marlet art tempts me — I expect it would spoil too much of the film. All I want from this movie is some beefy viking warrior women in the main cast this time around. Beefy viking warrior women are the best thing about vikings.
