Hay hay Unicorns

I can finally post stuff from 2010! Which is why i'm posting a couple of left over things for 2009. I can't even say wht that sort of thing matters to me other than i am pretty neurotic and it gives me something to talk about.

It's hard to say how managed to make it into my twenties still obsessed with unicorns, but I did. along those lines, The Last Unicorn is one of my favorite books/movies, so when i the oppertunity for an illustration presented itself in my illustration class i went for it. The theme was "late arrival" which would probablt make oodles more sense if you're familiar with the story. Apparently though, not everyone in my class is as dorky as me, so i had to explain a number of times why the unicorn doesn't look like a horse.

The rest is sketchbook stuff. I'm working on nailing down the design for Sayo/Tula including her younger version, before and just after she starts living alone in the woods and carrying a gun around.

and a random scrawny girl with a scrawny cat.

Holy plethora of sketches batman!

Here we have the last of 2009's sketches, which I am late in posting because I had no scanner until i was back at school. I'm really looking forward to 2010. For those who know me, 2009 was a pretty crappy year for art and for personal life.

Subsequently, upon my return home for the holidays i spent a good amount of time like this, blissfully unproductive:

So, one last look back before we forget everything that happened (although, CTN-X was cool, i don't mind that):

Old people and their pets amuse me. I seem to have fixated on foxes for a while as well:

I may paint this one. I rather liked the tree, but it's pretty similar to a tree in another painting i did last spring.
Last but, not least, i took a whack at designing headress without any reference at all. One of my OC's for the elements project i'm working on will require a design for a ceremonial outfit, which i am striving not to make as an Amidala rip-off.

I rather like the idea of the antlers, as Mym's element is fire, but i still need to do a bit of finessing.

Whew. That's a pretty signifigant head count, there.
