Semi-Something Doodle - image: Jaelin (drawn 2/11/12)

Playing a table top RPG (AD&D ed 2-3ish) . I'm playing a northern plains warrior. And, as is typical when I'm listening to the set up, I doodled my character for visual reference.
Her head still seems a little small, but otherwise I'm rather proud of the detail.

Maybe it's just because I've been drawing in chibi style the last few days. :)

Semi-daily Doodle - image: Gaming Geekery (drawn 2/1/12)

My coworker has been excited about the idea of playing her first D&D game. Her excitement was cute. I couldn't resist.

Semi-Daily Doodle - image: Pancake Pac-man (drawn 1/25/12)

Breakfast for dinner -- or lunch, in this case -- can be inspiring. See what a well placed cut and some berries can do? Mmm, power pellets taste like banana.
I didn't actually do this with real pancakes.
Maybe next time. :)

Semi-Daily Doodle - image: Ever Dream (drawn 1/24/12)

So, here is my first doodly doodle. I didn't have anything in mind when I started. Well, no goal other than to draw "something". So, I let my iPod choose the music (Ever Dream by Nightwish) and I followed the flow of my fingers. (Yay alliteration!)
It took about 2 1/2 times through the song before I decided it was finished. And I didn't erase. Doodling at it's purest. Or as close as I can get?

Semi-Daily Doodle - image: Ran (drawn:1/19/12)

I know I say semi-daily, but j actually feel guilty for not having anything doodled yesterday. I suppose I could have used that instead to post an old picture. I'll remember that for next time. :)

As for Ran, another of Rikka's doll characters. This drawing specifically my attempt at a present for her girl. I do like the overall idea and turnout.
His hand is definitely off. It was hard to place the right angle. I probably should have used a mirror instead of attempting to twist my hand and guess. (Though it's better than his original hand which had been about 50% bigger. Bad planning. :))

Semi-sane doodle thing - image: KD (drawn: 2/23/12)

I came across an outfit for a doll that just seemed a perfect fit for my ideal dress form for KD. Unfortunately I don't know of I quite managed to capture the look this time. It needs a more front facing image. Tomorrow, perhaps... okay, today. It is 1 am.

And can I say o thought this image was pretty much crap earlier, but over all it isn't actually so bad.

Further on, had a great time at Katsucon this past weekend. Happy to see friends, and a surprising number of return customers.
I didn't get a lot of doodle time in the last week with work and preparations, but I'm planning on making up for that, and posting up the one (crap) sketch I did on commission.

But first, sleep. :)

Semi-Daily Doodle - image: random (drawn 2/2/12)

Another free doodle day. so I've drawn some faces. A little different feel of each. The little might be a merchant or tradesman for RH. The bigger one? Eh maybe I'll use that one too. It was just fun. Faces. :)

Semi-daily Doodle - image: Cuteness (drawn 1/29/12)

There is nothing cuter than a kid wearing her (or his) Daddy's over-sized boots. And loving it! It was inspiring.
The image is rough, but I just wanted to get it drawn quickly.

Semi-Daily doodle - image: Kristen and Steve (drawn 1/20/12)

It looked so good, I just had to share. Or that's just my ego talking.

Or just my need to share another doodle. This is all about doodling, after all.

So, I was talking with a friend about ideas for this screenplay she's been working on. (I've gotten to be an informational resource for her since she is putting a lot of D&D influence into the plotline, and I have a lot more experience in that area.) And we were talking over parts of the characters, which included a little rehashing of appearances.
So, I wound up doodling two of them: the main protagonist and.. it's still in the air just how thorough his role will be in things.

I was pleased that she liked the picture. (Happy ego-filled head goes pop! ;))

Semi-Daily Doodle - image: Wishful thinking (drawn: 1/20/12)

Title says it all.
I'm taking a make-up yoga session today, and I'm looking forward to it, both for the exercise and experience. A bit of relaxation too. I've really been emoting the weekly sessions over the last two months.
Bottom line, though: I have never been flexible enough to bed over like this.

As for the doodle, it was clearly rushed. Arm proportioning is a bit off. And no, this isn't meant to look like me either. :)

Semi-Daily Doodle - image: Ria and KD (drawn: 1/17/12)

Sparring match.
So another of my goals is to work on more images of my comic characters for filler images and to detail better for eventual full color pictures.
This particular idea came from a though on working o. The main characters' past relationship. There was a lot of training together and they grew to enjoy it. This fencing match is probably when they were early teens.

I'm rather proud of my success in keeping the proper proportions while drawing this. Ofttimes I wind up with one combatant looking good and then the next one winds up too big or too long... generally off and it takes a little extra work to fix it.
I did use a reference picture of two fencers. I needed to adjust for Ria's being left handed. (Another personal success.)
