The sockeye salmon run in the Fraser river has been extremely sad for years, but it's looking like they have made a major recovery! There are tens of MILLIONS of these fellows. Bears everywhere are pleased.

New flash.

I am working on a new thing.

Friday, August 20, 2010


I've been trying to do warm-up drawings every morning, usually trying to pause 'n copy from something on the TV, to try different styles. Also, it's another good excuse for watching some Simpsons.

Here are some of those practice drawings.

Oh my neighbour.

My neighbour. This guy.

After a whole morning of my neighbour listening to loud Lady Gaga, he switched to loud new-age synth chanting. THE SAME TRACK. Or maybe it was a two/three hour long track, I really don't know my new age chant albums.

I have illustrated exactly how the music sounded.

Chris Sanders challenge.

Drawn for the DAC's style challenge, which was to draw like Chris Sanders. So I chose to try drawing Faye from cowboy bebop! Ein I think is more in style, but he also looks like a creep, hehe.

Monster Highlights!

A treasure troll is too a monster. Also, second up from the bottom that is a Yeti from Doctor Who. (Although I'm much happier with the way the doctor turned out than with the yeti) At the top of this bunch is a Monoped, a medieval beast which was basically a "man with one leg".

Thirty Monster days are up!

THIRTY MONSTERS! Here is a condensed image of all the monsters (I've seen friends and other folk do this I think it is a neat way of displaying such things). I'll follow up this post later today with some of the better ones I haven't yet put up. :)

All in all this was super fun, this challenge.

Heraldic Monsters

More medieval monsters based on Heraldic designs! One of the main things about these monsters is that they usually have their tongues out.

In order, they are a Wingless Lion, Wyvern, some sort of scaly Manticore/Sphinx, and a Yale.

(The scaly fellow is based on an image that was listed only as "monster". Looked like a scaly manticore with a lion's tail.) The Yale has the ability to rotate its horns in any direction.

the Tengu

The Tengu! - Japanese bird spirits/goblins : [link] There are all kinds of stories and legends surrounding the Tengu. Sometimes they're described as being mischievous drinkers who prank monks, other times they are scary, vengeful creatures. Either way, they are awesome.
