More coffee sketches.

I always seem to get into weirder head-shapes towards the end of the evening.

Hands and feet!

I've started keeping a little sketchbook full of just hands and feet.  We had this ongoing assignment in school to draw hands and feet and I'm bringing it back as a warm-up for working or drawing other stuff.

"B" movie sexy witch and composite-cat-bat designs

Voluptuous and green-skinned woman.  She wears a wide-brimmed hat and a slashed-and-braided t-shirt.  She likes the colour pink, stripes, and roller-derby fashion.  She enjoys offering self-fulfilling prophecies and confusingly worded advice to people seeking her supernatural help.  Everything she says has a second meaning, either sexual innuendo or foreshadowing a futue event. She used her witchly powers to build, modify, and maintain her one companion, a stitched together bat-cat-monster called OTHER.
OTHER is a composite creature, made from three seperate cats and one large bat crudely sewn together and forced into life.  Other is inquisitive, suspicious and skittish.  He is constanty snatching things and retreating to examine them somewhere safely removed from humans.  Other has a tragic fascination and fear of cats, and spends his nights perched on rooftops, staring longingly at the alley cats below, stalking a world of which he can never be a part. He compusively chews on paper and cardboard, leaving scraps of Edwina's scrolls and boxes littered about her lair.

3 Alien environments with native life forms

Really like how these are coming along.  Have a couple tweaks before I put a fork in them, but it feels like I turned a corner, paint-wise. Diggin' it.

Tim Burton style characters for Hansel and Gretel

Had to design characters for the fairy tale "Hansel and Gretel" in Tim Burton's style for a stop-motion film.  In the story, Hansel and Gretel were left in the woods because their evil step mother decided that they couldn't afford to feed the kids.  Hansel kept coming up with all the ideas, but Gretel ends up shoving the witch in the oven.  So I made Hansel small and big-headed, and Gretel look like she would be very expensive to feed, and gave her big witch-shovin' arms.
