More Widdershins art!

The print version of "Green-Eyed Monster", Chapter 5 of Kate Ashwin's webcomic Widdershins, has some extra material at the end: notes compiled by Ben on the malforms they've encountered, with drawings that Wolfe made from Mal's (rather vague) descriptions.  After reading that, I couldn't resist drawing the three of them working on the notes.  (Mal: "It's sorta... y'know... happy.  Wi' spots an' fluffy bits on."  Ben: "Is it really asking too much for you to produce a reasonably precise description?") 

Also included is the Purple Hippo of Happiness, posing for its portrait in blithe disregard of the fact that only Mal can see it. 
For some reason, I find the image of Florrie giving Mal one of her flying tackle-hugs inordinately amusing.

Florence de Montfort and Jack O'Malley are from the amazing webcomic Widdershins by Kate Ashwin.
The Primes
In the Elemental Blessings series by Sharon Shinn, everyone in the country of Welce is affiliated with one of the five elements.  Each element has one person, the prime, who has the ability to control it; together, the five primes keep the country in balance. 

Left to right:
Zoe Lalindar, the coru prime (water and blood); Kayle Dochenza, the elay prime (air and spirit); Nelson Ardelay, the sweela prime (fire and mind); Taro Frothen, the torz prime (earth and flesh); Mirti Serlast, the hunti prime (wood and bone). 
Making Wishes Come True - lineart
Fairy godfathers extraordinaire, Serge the Blue fairy and Jasper the Crimson fairy.  I totally ship these two! 

Serge and Jasper are from Disenchanted, the second book in the fantastic Tyme series by Megan Morrison.

I wanted to color this drawing because colors are so important in the Tyme books, but I think the lineart looks better on its own.  Colored version here.
Apparently I haven't done a journal entry since last June!

I've been drawing a lot more over the last year or so, and I think it's partly due to having DeviantART as a place to show things off.  Pretty much everything I draw is fan art, either of my own characters or somebody else's, and half the fun of the latter is sharing it with other people who know the characters.  DA is good for inspiration, too; browsing other people's art gives me ideas for mine, as well as letting me see how they do things (oh, that's a really good way to draw a nose, I should try that...).  My drawing skills have definitely improved over that time, but I still have a lot to learn.  I particularly want to get better at shading and doing folds in clothes.

Ever since I can remember I've been drawing pictures of the characters in the books I read. For a while I wanted to be an illustrator when I grew up, because I liked the thought of drawing book characters as a job. (I also wanted to be able to make them look right - I have a thing about inaccurate illustrations!) I don't really want to be a professional illustrator anymore, but I love creating pictures of my favorite characters and sharing them with other people who love the same books.

Thanks for the :+fav: on "The Minuet" =) I'm glad you liked it!

You're welcome!  I love both the Regency era and dressed-up mice, and that drawing is the perfect combination.

I can see from your gallery that you like Georgette Heyer – definitely one of my favourite authors, and she's definitely at least partially responsible for my default sketch state being 'girl in pretty historical costume' =P

She's one of my top favorites too - as a matter of fact, her books were what got me into the Regency era in the first place!
