Thanks for the wonderful time. I did lots of sketches, met lots of people and it went by so fast.
As promised, I’ll have some of my Star Wars ‘How to Draw’ tutorials up soon, and a new Yoda one. Right now I’m finishing off the commissions that I took late on Sunday.
While I was going to randomly go to Ottawa Comicon next weekend to schmooze, I’ve got a responsibility here at home that is keeping me from road tripping. I’ll be at Wizardworld Chicago as a guest and perhaps a couple of other between now and then as a fan.
On the subject of commissions, the following pictures were commissioned and not picked up. If these belong to you, please get in touch with me! I think the commissioner was a volunteer, and these were for her nephews.
I have been working on commissions and tooling around in between them to get my juices going. If you’re super curious about what little scribbles I’m doing, I’ve been uploading them to the Pencils and Sketches part of my site. The quick little digital doodles are part of a project my pal Neogeen is working on and a bunch of artists are testing. I’m enjoying myself. (Seriously, check out her art, it is the bees knees)
Here are a couple of other digital pieces. The bear is a commission and the fox is a little pencil sketch I dolled up for fun.
Hopefully there will be more cute coming your way. I will be open for larger commissions in June – digital and real media – so give me a holler if you’re interested.
It’s nice to be finally getting the feel for the digital media again. Photoshop and I have not been friends for a while. FYI, the bear badge was done in SAI and the fox was coloured in photoshop.
I sold out at the con, and I have more printed now.
The prints are $5 each plus shipping – $2 Canada, $3 US and $5 International.
I am also taking You-As-A-Pony commissions!
Here’s the deal, any more details than this are more cash!
$15 each, watercolour, around 4×6 in 5×7 paper. (PLUS SHIPPING) All prices are in Canadian
What you get:
ONE body colour
ONE colour for mane and tail
Relatively uncomplex cutie mark
Your choice of unicorn, pegasus or earth pony.
If you want the mane or tail drawn in a certain way (Straight, curly, long, short) I will do my best.
Let me know if you want a brony, I will draw him with a squarer face and/or without eye lashes.
The pose is up to me. There are no backgrounds.
Addons: Choose your own pose: $5 Complex body colouring (IE multiple colours) – $10 (Like if you wanted something like the X ponies) Prop (like a hat, small furry animal, simple costume element, weapon) – $5 Multiple mane colours (Like, a stripe of a different colour) – $2 Unicorn horn and wings: $2 A second character (Like you riding yourself as a pony, or another basic pony in the same picture) – $10 Background – Varies. This can push the pony into full commission land as far as pricing.
Please comment or send an email to amy at flyingarmadillo dot com and I will ponify you!
I DO have an example of a watercolour pony, but I can’t show it yet as it is a gift. However, watercolour ponies are awesome and not streaky like the marker ones. Note that I cannot guarantee exact colour matching with watercolours.
Below are some I did in Calgary, your ponies for the post con price are guaranteed to be streak free 😀
Dude. OK, so I was cleaning out my email and happened upon some old sent mail that I had not deleted for whatever reason. I found the D6 stats for ‘Castaways of Endor’, three short stories (Which I will be polishing and posting sooner or later) (Which I will post so someone can convert them to D20!) some art I’d forgotten I’d done (Including a bunch of Mr Miyagi type judo masters for a judo website, and some art of questionable artistic value) and some art that I had done, but I’d long since lamented their loss, as they were something I lost in a hard drive crash.
Back in 2002 a site I used to frequent had a Beanies game. You would reload pages, and every now and then you would find a beanie. Then you could trade said beanies and such. The game ended up being yanked because it was, understandably, an enormous bandwidth hog. So here they are. beanies. And these kind of represent the historical beginnings of a style I still use today!
Want a beanie? Contact me. Or comment. They’re $7. Keep the details small, I draw them about 2″x2″, flat colour, very fun to do. I have a long weekend and march break. Depending on the volume I get, I’ll let you know how long it’ll take. I’ll be starting them on Friday.
In case you are wondering, characters top to bottom, L-R:
Tarzy, Rody, Oryx, Ianhorous (All from one of the short stories, Fox-shark, Dead Bird Head Guy (x3 – he needs his own web comic), Dragon-Gecko, Chilly (Belongs to a friend of mine), Beacon, Random white tiger, Flying Armadillo, Amara as Ewok, Amara as Sith, Amara as Jedi, Amara as TMBG fan.
Fan art is OK. 😀 I hope you have enjoyed this trip down memory lane!
