I’m completing the “Awesome Space Guys” series as well as a Harley Quinn series (of probably four prints) and have decided to make all these limited edition prints of 10.

You’re probably thinking, well why? Your not that big of a deal.

True, I’m not, but it’s something I haven’t done in a while, and it was suggested it’d be a great way to get work into people’s hands in the upcoming conventions I plan to do.

Also, as stated before, I’m going to start branching out to Society6 and Pinterest more, so keep your eyes peeled there.

And lastly, if anyone has any kind of feedback for me, good or bad, whether its about content or just line work, colors, etc. please send me something in my ask. I’d love to hear from more people, it’s really helpful.

Thanks!

I started this months ago when I was first introduced to using Manga Studio. That’s why the lines and blending looks a little different than my recent stuff. 
Anyways, this was another print inspired by Electric Six lyrics. While I’m working on other Electric Six lyric illustrations, I wanted to finish this one up first. It’s a mesh of different song references: “Dance Commander”, “Pink Flamingos”, and “She’s White”. I liked the mixing of references because the band’s songs use many of the same themes or imagery. Dick Valentine painting himself or the narrator of the songs to be a devil creature is pretty common, which is why I made him so in this picture.
Electric Six fans, enjoy. More to come in the future.

Low res samples for now of my Mistress 9 Art Nouveau design, since I want to upload the real deal on Redbubble and Society6, both as a print and as a design on knick knacks.

Feedback, as always, is appreciated of course, since I’m trying to better my hand at the Art Nouveau style and also with digital shading/coloring in general.

Thanks!

I’ve been drawing everyday, for probably the past month—literally everyday. It’s usually some combination of pen sketching, digital lining, and/or digital coloring… I’m noticing the small and gradual ways it helps me improve. So definitely, if that’s something you’re working towards, fit it in everyday whenever and however you can.

Reminder that you can follow me on Pinterest too! I’m trying to be good about keeping my art updated and pinned there too!

Hey followers,

I know I often ask to share my art and pretty much self promote, but this time I’m asking you please please contribute to funding the Team Kentucky expenses for this fall’s State Wars. If you can’t contribute please share and reblog as much as you can! It’s much appreciated from the bottom of my heart!

What is this?

As most of you know, I play roller derby and this fall is the first State Wars tournament, where each state in the U.S. fields a team to play against the other states. I made it onto Team Kentucky with a bunch of other fine female athletes from this state. It’s quite expensive for all of us to pay for uniforms AND travel expenses to Florida, so we need as much help as we can get in that area.

Like I said, it would be most appreciated by not just me but Team Kentucky if you donated or at the very least shared. To any of my followers, I will draw you any request you ask for in return for donating to our team. Just reblog this post and mention what you’d like me to illustrate in my ask.

Thanks so much, and much love to you all,

Dixxie Mae/Johnnie Knocks’em

Commission for a friend, it’s Groot and Rocket obviously. I feel like this piece really helped me practice and get to a place with line art and shading that I want to be. I didn’t even use any lighting references and I think it turned out pretty decent!
Let me know what you think! And please, no stealing! I worked hard on this and it was for someone else, so if you’re going to put it somewhere else, please credit/source.

I seriously have met some of the weirdest, unreal people in this city.

I just wanted to draw up a quick Gamora profile without much to it. May post to other links later. I used this mainly as color and lighting/shading practice. Please, feedback on that would be great, thank you.
