(Note: My scanner hates my paintings! This is all washed out. :c)
I was looking around at watercolor tutorials to try and learn how to paint with black. They ended up not being that useful because they all said something like “mix your tube of burnt sienna with ultramarine blue to achieve a warm mixture” and I have really cheapo hand-me-down Prang watercolors of the sort you usually find elementary children painting with. Mud seems to be the preferred hue for most of my attempts at mixing. I guess I’ll stick with my trusty brown/blue combo, except I’m running out of blue. XD
One of the tutorials I read demonstrated how to mix colored pencils and watercolors, so I thought I’d give it a shot! My first two attempts at mixed media are portraits of my doggie. :)  I’m not sure I’m a huge fan of the texture. My black colored pencil is Prismacolor and everything else is Prang and I, uh, like my cheapo pencils considerably more.
Also there was a tutorial on how to create dark backgrounds. This one is certainly dark, but their technique involved about 50 very light layers laid on top of each other and I am very lazy and impatient so I’m not sure I’ll do that again. XD  But it was a learning experience!

I saw Nambroth's hilarious take on the fursona generator and had to give it a try.

The tiny black deer is brown because black and I are not friends. I need to practice painting with it more. XD

It happened to be wyrd66's birthday yesterday, and I totally managed to miss it. Yay. I'm so smart. SO, today's doodle subject was Radon and co.! It was nice to get a break from the dragons. Dances taking off, and Radon being very unamused by Dances' bathroom choice (I don't think this would ever happen, but he looked so grumpy in my sketch, I couldn't resist.)

The only reference I had for the pencil sketch was a teeny picture on my mother’s mobile phone (I was in a cafe with no wifi) but I hope you like it still. Happy belated birthday, you wonderful weird art-person!

Aw thanks! You draw the birds so cute— I especially like the one of Dances taking off— he looks so graceful! And I love they way they’re just all over Radon. XD

Thank yoooou! :D

Thank you, everyone, for the nice birthday wishes. I had pie, and yesterday got to go out and eat with my family. And my grandpa got me a noisy card that Bindi tried to tear out of my hands and eat, and that was hilarious.

Thank you again! :)

Today is the wonderful Wyrd’s birthday!  And since she’s so wonderful, I drew her some grouchy idiots bickering over birthday croissants.  
Happy birthday, my spectacular friend!  

I AM SO HAPPY YOU DREW THESE DUMBBUTTS. What jerks. You know the scene just erupts in two seconds. Total chaos.
Thank yooou! <333!

Doing some doodles of Wyrd’s Radon with his mob of hawken! And since it’s her birthday, I thought I’d share here!

I had a silly idea earlier today that involved Sorstan sharing the interest in all things BURD with Radon. They’re both serious, and quiet (Radon’s a mute) so I think they’d get along decently enough. (*gasp* smiles?)

Getting a sense of scale with all of these differently sized critters is hard. Radon is 6’ 9” without his ears, Sorstan stands 5’ 1” at the shoulders when on all fours, and we’ve got a large range of bird sizes. This is totally something I need to do more of, not even joking.

Aaaaah bird faces! And bird expressions! I must draw MOAR!

*muffled shrieking* Oh man these are so great!! I love how you drew Radon’s face, especially his nose. And the birds are so lovely (you drew all of them eeeeee)! You got Dances’ personality down pat— he’s leetle, but afraid of nothing.

And I love that shot of him and Sorstan. I may have to draw a response. They can bond over birds!

Thank yooooou! <3!
