Here's my next Goddess I'm working on: Saraswati, who is a Hindu Goddess of knowledge and arts which will constrast well with the TV goddess I've done already. I'm trying out a different pallette that is more softer like pastels. I'm hoping the final will turn out well; I'm going to include the TV Goddess in the background since I'll be having Saraswati sitting infront of a TV store display window.
EDIT: Here's another working copy I'm currently working on. The grass is still bugging the hell out of me since I haven't figure out how to do it yet. The snow is alright, but not as good as I want it to be. I'm still working on texturing the wall she's in front of, but something subtle which is just too subtle right now.

I can never scan watercolour/ink stuff well. The scanner always picks up too much of the paper when I do it non-hot press paper which sucks. And of course, the paper being warpped(sp) a bit doesn't help. Just some stuff I've been trying out with watercolours that sorta work like inks. With a limited pallette, it seems to be working relatively well. I think I'm going to just take photos the next time. Damn scanner or maybe just damn me.

Just a quick sketch I drew while watching "Lost in Translation" which is a really good movie by the way. I want to do a more complete background for it, but I'm not sure how far I'll take it.
EDIT: Added a working colour rough. I'm really liking the flat colours without shading. I'll probably do a shaded version and see which I like better.

Just some more animals I've been working on. I'm going to try to do some mythological ones as well hence why I've got Cerberus (the hellhound that guards that gates of Hades) there as well. I've got a really rough idea for a wyern and a unicorn that I'll try to work on later. Oh yeah, I already did a sheep, but I wanted to do a ram since I've got a friend that likes sheeps and rams so that's for her.

Here's the next roughs for animal spot illustrations I've been doing for fun. Well the shrimp one is a rough-rough in that I still need to re-draw it out for a final before taking it into Illustrator to work on. I'm liking how both of them are looking like but I think i'll have to take out some of the shell lines for the shrimp so it's more simple like the other ones, but I'm not sure yet.
EDIT: if only 'cause a friend of mine pointed out how I spelt kangaroo wrong. Thanks very much, Nara ... and yes, I don't know if I'm sarcastic or not.

I finally got back to sketching again weekend. It sucks when school works takes up more time than I want it to. Drawing anything is good, but sometimes it's so much more fun to be able to do my own stuff without any rules or limitations/restrictions on it.
