Merry X-mas!

Here's my offering this year (Apologies to Santabot) featuring Jinx and Gizmo (from The Teen Titans).

Mistletoe or tow missile?

Still love that line from the first Xmas episode, and your picture is great as usual. Great poses and colouring, and I like that you post your sketches to give us a bit of an idea of your work methods.

Thanks Chris. Sometimes the sketches are more fun than the final drawing.

Happy New Year, all! This century is old enough it can legally buy beer.

Good bye, 2020. Good riddance! But it did leave a parting shot.

One of my co-workers tested positive for Covid.

My boss won't let anybody back into the shop until they get a negative test. I'm still waiting for mine, which is due this afternoon.

First sketch dump of the new year.

I've been watching "Hilda". Intriguing series about a girl living with her mom in a cabin in the woods and befriending all kinds of strange creatures. Until a giant unintentionally crushes their house. They move into town and she continues meeting strange creatures in the city.

Also an anime thing called "Kill La Kill". With apologies to half the planet, I have to admit I'm not a big anime fan. I'd rate this one "okay".

Sorry about your coworker. I wish them all the best, and hope your test comes back with negative results. :)

Your Hilda pictures are nice. Great sense of weight in the shading, and great movement in the last two.

I'm really not a fan of Kill la Kill, but your drawings are very professional (unsurprisingly) and on-model. Love the expressions.

Co-worker still has a couple of more quarantine days to go, but from what I've heard he's fine. My test came back. Took longer than expected thanks to a medical records glitch. I took the test under the name "Mike" but requested the results under the name "Michael". The hospital computer reads that as two different people. Correction required a few extra days.

Results: Negative!

I'm impressed with the Hilda series. Among other things their artist direction is very clever.

Want to know something surprising about Kill la Kill? I noticed some similar animation cues to another show that I really did like. I did some digging, and Kill was done by Studio Trigger. The same group also did "BNA" with Michiru!

Erk, yes, I run into bureaucratic stupidity like that all the time. Glad to hear about the good news for you and your colleague!

Yay, more Disenchantment! I wish I could watch it, but we don't have Netflix.

Very nice coloured version, with lovely highlights and an awesome background. The eye is cool.

You don't have Netflix? I'm surprised. It's my main source for shows. (BTW they have a series called "Alice in Borderland", which is insanely suspenseful.)

I'm about 3/4 done with the second watching of "Disenchament", getting grabs as I go along. Talk about palace intrigue...


A set with Bean and her mom,Dagmar.

I did something I don't usually do. I kept tabs on how much time I spent on the Bean/Dagmar sketch. First sketch was an hour and a quarter. Second an additional 45 minutes, and the final another 45 minutes. From blank paper to done, 2 and 3/4 hours. Really!
