Vacation Doodles

Spent the last week in Independence with my family! It was wonderful to see everyone, even though I ended up contracting a wretched disease from my little brothers. It seems like I always get sick when I go back there! Oh, well. Plenty of rest and a hearty batch of veggie soup seems to have cured me.

Did a bit of sketching while relaxing at the homestead:

A studly specimen.

Breckendy, even shorter and more distrustful than usual.

Tending to a sick friend. But not all apples are good for you...

Vocab word of the day: digitigrade!

A picture I'm working on for my (big) little brother.  It was the only way I could bribe him into letting me trim his shaggy teen hair. =P A character from one of his numerous stories, a trickster god/demon who assumes the form of a six-tailed white fox, and is generally a dangerous fellow to be around, from what I understand.

After watching Tangled (for the second time),  was overcome with the need to draw some long locks.

Kimuth plays a tune

Sorry again for the infrequent posting. The drawing mania ebbs and flows, and it's been ebbing for a while. But that means it will start to flow again soon!

Here is a picture of Kimuth playing some sort of small stringed instrument similar to but not quite like a mandolin. I made it up without a great deal of consideration-- you can tell because it has four tuning pegs and only three strings. Kimuth is also modeling my trademark footie pajamas, which I like to draw on characters when I don't know what they should be wearing, but don't want to draw them naked.

I wasn't particularly invested in it when I started doodling this last night, but I love how it turned out! I will certainly be working on a spiffy, full-color "official" version, complete with improved instrument design and Real Pants.

Rockin' those footies.
