Top one on the left-hand side: “What’d I come out here for, again?”
A very very very very very very very long overdue commission for Frank Villarreal, a wonderful artist, banjoist, and penguin enthusiast.
Before this commish, I didn’t even know this species of penguin existed! They are really rad. With their semi-intimidating gaze it was hard not to cartoon one as a hard-boiled detective.
I believe the digital watercolor brushes are by Mastodon.Art user PolloMostro??
Don’t take him seriously.
I couldn’t think of anything to draw that day. But they still came out cute, whew! Did the anchorkitty’s hair!
Our last ward didn’t suit us so we’re trying someplace new! Her talk was really good.
Whilst trying to figure out hair for the healer faerie, I stumbled into a look for the jokester faerie. Woohoo!
Her name is Félicité. Laughter powers her magic*, so she’s always ready with a joke.
*it’s never called magic in this series, though
Oh, you know, just practicing my pelican necks.
Because StyxColor over on Mastodon is doing 1-hour greyscale monster designs this month, and I always need excuses to draw monsters!
For #Smaugust. I referenced actual animals for some of the parts (for once)!
