Mikayla Kind of Week


Both these pieces are from Monday's art lesson.

Mikayla is the main character from my ever-in-the-planning-stages/trying-to-get-off-the-ground comic "Eleison" which will probably reboot... again... in the near future. For real this time, I hope.

Mikayla can see angels. She also has a pet/friend mouse named Bosie. Yes, after THAT Bosie.

Mermaids were one of my favorite things to draw as a child. Second only to flowers and princesses, I believe. I spent ages trying to figure out how to draw scales on them without it looking stupid because smooth mermaids just weren't realistic. I remembered that here, obviously, though I found scales are pretty easy to fake with watercolors.

Who knew mermaids were easiest in watercolor? It seems so obvious to me now...

Tobias and Ryan


Lately, as far as watercolor sketches are concerned, Toby has been showing up as more of a backgroud than a character. A prop, if you will, like a cardboard cut out or something. This might be because I think of landscapes when I think of him- you know the type. Big ole landscape with little wagons and people going across it to the West. Yes, in my head, Tobias is westward expansion.

Tree Kayla- Possibly NSFW

Made small for minimal shock factor. Click to full view. Nothing horrible, just a little artistic nudity. You wouldn't wear clothes if you were turning into a tree either.


Considering she is from a story that features a character named Daphne that runs away from love... it might be a little ironic that recently Kayla has been appearing in paint form as a sort of tree spirit.

Young Tobias and Cara and a Tree

The title says it all. A classic "watercolor mistake", meaning that I have no idea how this happened but am so glad that it did.

Joanna, my penpal, and I have been joking about TOBYCAT for some time now. Basically he is my character Toby... as a cat. These drawings also feature: John, one of Joanna's characters and Ryan, who hopefully you know by now.
