Gifts from the 13th Hemisphere

Pew pew, I love drawing with markers! Top one is a jellyfish mixed with an octopus. The bottom one is TyrannoSYNTAX ErroREX! 

I meant to post this a few weeks ago but we all know how it goes. Anyways, the story behind this is I was at a BBQ (What Will Smith wasn’t at in Independence Day) with some friends and the host [Dave] hadn’t finished his post-Christmas clean-up. While ol’ Xamson was hard at work taking in the nice weather and several meatwursts from the grill into what he’d call a nice day he came about a wreath. He says, “You need to clean this up before I go X-mas lion of Xmas past on you.” Dave picks up the Xmas wreath[-would be mane] and lo and behold by the dark magics of all things I [Xamson] can’t be around comfortably, a wild snake appears and it appears hard. Like it had been hosting it’s own cook out in the wreath since spring started. Snakes are wizards out to kill my tranquility. But despite the jellybones they make out of me and myself, I took some nice pictures of the little thing. 

I still imagine what would have happened if I had polymorphed into a X-mas Lion of X-mas past with our friend; the bane-of-my-existence, still in the wreath. Would I be quelled into peace or forsake nature and become a robot? Like a Tootsie Pop, the world will never know :)


Howdy! Here’s a character sketch I did a while ago. Like everyone I know he was meant to have legs.
His name is Grendelphius. He is essentially a metal genie, I hadn’t planned for it but looking over his backstory he most definitely comes off like a genie. Don’t you hate when things go to pandas when you least plan for it?

Here is my character Ermond, I’ve been trying to make a good incognito Eskimo ninja (eskinobi..!) for him for a while. He’s an older character and drawing non-incognito elderly characters gets a little hobo~y…on both ends :|

I feel for this hobo :)

With the new use of colors I’ve also been trying to makes blocks of color to signify shadows and highlights. I’m adapting this into my sketches as well for practice synergy.

I’ve been practicing a lot with markers to gain a better sense of color use. Here’s some practice proof :) enjoy

Two characters I made this past weekend. They’re both monks, Karadeth channels his attacks with frost, shock, fire or acid. He can also slow time slightly to make his catlike dexterity and nimbleness a nightmare to face against. He is also able to detect thoughts and use charm person to avert violence.

Djornaghast(jorn-ah-gasst) is a Lawful evil hungry ghost monk who can’t seem to stay away from the life of movement and loves nothing more than embracing his vampire bloodline to sap another’s lively movements away from them.
