Various drawings done in colored pencils...

Stop yearning, Stop burning...

Very soft colors, kinda cool feel.

Poor guy...

Universe of sound
This is my favorite of this bunch. I really like the swirling music notes in the background.

Thanks for your time!

Sketches No. 1

Here are some character sketches from my sketchbook. Keep in mind that these are only sketches, and they might look unfinished or have unnecessary stuff in the background. I just wanted to give you some idea of what the inside of my sketchbook looks like.

Sketch 4
Some sketches for a ghost/spirit girl.

Sketch 5
I really like the one in the lower left.

Sketch 3
I tried to apply the same style I used on the ghost girl to a different character. Except this one looks more like some kinda tree spirit.

Sketch 1
More tree spirit.

Sketch 2
Another ghostly character.

Lots of ugly background smudges in this one. I thought I'd still include it since it combines separate characters into one picture. I like the way their hands bind together too.

Thanks For reading!!

Recent Art

Some new pieces...

Floating Notes
Pretty nice pen and ink piece. I like the guy's expression.

Trapped in a Place that is not Heaven
This one actually comes straight from my sketch book. I was messing around with colored pencils, and just started drawing crazy blue lines on one page. An idea struck me, and I decided to add the guy.

Painting the Sky
This last one's ink and oil pastels. I'll try to post again over the next few days. Thanks for your time. Bye!
