The Pearl Holder

I’ve been pretty busy lately, so all I have from the past month is a a 15 minute or so sketchy doodle of some kind of dragon/serpent thing. I contemplated calling it a naga, but it has wings, so it’s probably just some nameless wierd thing.

More work from my new sketchbook; I’m kind of out of practice on doodling randomness. Not exactly sure if it’s surreal enough for what I had in mind, but I wanted to finish it. I disregarded making everything even after about two minutes, so it’s pretty obvious where I just marked up the thing quickly and without advanced planning.

WIP – SKETCH WITH ALL THE COLORS!!

Fire and Ash

One of my oldest characters, Zanik. He’s not interested in obligations, familial or otherwise, feels loyalty to very few dragons, and mostly sticks to himself. He’s nice if he deems you a friend, but rude to just about anyone else.

He used to be one of those catch-all OCs with crazy super powers and tragic back stories, but in recent years I’ve sorted out his personality and history so he’s a little more respectable. Sometimes I think about drawing a comic for him and his friends, but I’m lacking in the ‘draw anything consistently’ category.

Overall I’m pretty happy about how it turned out, especially his facial profile. He’s supposed to resemble a more reptilian, snake-ish dragon as opposed to some friendly Oriental style creature. The halo is not part of his design, but I thought it would look cool. He’s a dragon playing for the good side anyway. Even if he is a bit of a jerk, he’ll get around to doing the right thing eventually.

Hark! A Wasp!

I’m not sure if I’m becoming lazier or braver as I age, but wasps and bees freak me out less.┬áThe older I become the more ideas scare me like awkwardly running into old friends at restaurants, sweating out interviews, or forgetting to bring something.

On another tangent- the rose above reminds me of lollipops. The more photos I take, the more shapes I see in them- like watching clouds on an afternoon.

Fish

A slightly awkward black and white fish drawing in sharpie and black pen:

I regret not using a reference image, but I was in a room with absolutely no internet service to look up koi/fish. I probably should have asked for a book of fish. Hopefully it will become a simple tee shirt design.

Here’s a bonus dragon head I liked:
