Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Fan Art Round 2

Wow, I got a pretty favorable response to that last fan art post! Thank you! Because I am absolute garbage, here's another mini-comic.
It's kind of a spiritual sister to a really old (~2009) self-insert fan art I did of Labyrinth.
Gotta Love MS Paint!

Star Wars Fan Art

So, I finally watched Star Wars. And like, I really like the new ones so far. Kylo Ren is my new garbage baby. A little spoilery if you haven't seen The Last Jedi.

Sympathy Card - Bo

A few weeks back, we lost a particularly special patient. Bo was a true legend and had been coming to the hospital for his entire life. He was well-known for his long history of wacky hijinks, and will be sorely missed by everyone lucky enough to have met him.
After he passed, I heard a very sweet story about how he got his name from a coworker. When they first brought Bo home as a pup, he had been wearing a blue bow. The technician making his ink paw prints told me it was why she was putting blue bows on all his paw print cards.
Inspired by the blue bow story, I based the card around an embossed panel with two shades of blue ink blending. It's one of my "signature" tri-fold cards, because we needed room for everyone to write their goodbyes.

Rest in peace, friend.

Regency Babes

So I mentioned in my Bianyo Brush Markers review post, that I'd purchased some more skin tones from Bianyo and a set from Art-n-Fly. Here I am, using my marker collection together in all its glory to draw some regency babes!
I adore both mens' and womens' regency fashions. I knew I wanted to draw a variety of ladies to test my new tones on, so this is what I came up with. Who is your favorite? Mine is the lady in the blue dress. The blonde girl closest to the bottom is flustered because everyone else is in fancy dresses, and she's in pajamas!
Also, yes that is Pride and Prejudice 2005 fan art in the corner
I got so caught up in drawing the lovely ladies that I forgot to note which markers I used for what....oops! So I'll have an upcoming post with more about the skin color sets I purchased.

Sympathy Cards - Jasmine and Pangoro

Here's a few more sympathy cards from my time working at the animal hospital
For Pangoro
 A simple, sweet card for a very nice client who tragically lost their young cat.
For Jasmine
 For this card, I did the background in watercolor. Jasmine's owner is also an artist. I am terrible with watercolors, but I was hopefully skilled enough to make an interesting background for the card.

Belated Christmas

With everything going on in my life, Christmas kind of snuck up and snuck past before I had a chance to register it. I barely got any pictures of my cards this year! But here are the two designs I handed out to loved ones.
