Girl Power!!

Quick sketch to further emphasize how EXCITED I am to go home this weekend and shop with these lovely ladies!! : D I have many Sistas - of all kinds, and many not pictured here (Do I sense a quick sketch series? What about my Bros?! I can't forget them!!) - but these are the fabulous gals who will join me in teasing Raul. Relentlessly. All over Billings, MT. (Sorry in advance)  

Starting at the left is my biological older sister, Virginia. I'm excited to see her because I haven't seen her since the last time I was home in...March maybe? AND she's going to make me an auntie!! I'm going to be the best auntie ever and spoil her kids. Loves you my Gigi! : )

Center is my new little sister, Rocio. Technically Raul's little sister, but I calls dibs now. She's driving up with us to see what Montana's like. I tempted her with mentions of the lack of sales tax and movie watching. I hope she doesn't get too bored! Loves you my Lulu! : )

On the right is my foreign exchangee sister, Mio. My family hosted her for the year following my exchange in Japan. Not only a great sister, but a great friend too. She's visiting home before going back to Japan now that her college exchange is over. Loves you my Momo! : )

Update to the Onisan Project! : ) Much happier with her this go and had fun with the prop design - not normally something I do, but enjoyable. Might be making a tropical pit stop before I continue with Oni himself, which I plan to combine with the Magic Box Month 3 lesson. Learning ALL the things. Drawing ALL the things. Not sleeping much...a fair trade in my eyes...not for the people I work with. lol

Progress on Miss Punky. : ) I anticipate one more round before I call her finished and start prepping her for prints. At request I will have normal Punks and "Warhol" Punks (4 crazy colored punks in one print) for sale. I also still have some Ancient Beauties of China left - email me at rebecca@cosmicjingleart.com if you are interested in a Beauty or would like to reserve your Punk now!!

Character Sketches

Working on a new character, not "new" new, but new enough? Actually starting to get frustrated with her. I'm NOT a fan of the early Victorian hairstyles in Europe because they make everyone look old, manly and snobbish, so I fudged the historical accuracy hoping it would help make her look younger and a bit more feminine. (Aiming for a sophisticated early twenties) Trying to "stretch" her more and loosen her up since I imagine her as an animated character, but that too is proving hard since the further I try to push her, the further off model or awkward she starts looking. I was told that of the 6 drawings (3 of which I decided to scrap on account of said frustration) all of them looked like different people and were done in a completely different style. No suggestion was given as to how that could be remedied. A turn around was recommended to nail her features in place and give her a standard silhouette, but the first attempt (Not posted here) looked soooooo dead stiff that I felt it in my bad knee, took a pain killer and went to bed early. >< (Yesterday was kind of a nightmare anyway, so it was like...crowning achievement of FAIL)
