Minty's utterly ignoble sketchbook, updated 12/1/07, 43 new images. gasp!
I never ever finish anything, so I never, ever have anything to post in the finished forum, so I figured I might as well start a sketchbook to pour my inky little heart out in to.
Some old (somewhere around 2000, 2001, I lose track):
watercolour that warped my poor paper beyond salvation...
reffed from a photo of a friend, a speedpaint thingy, PS probably...
painter and PS, mostly what my job at the time ended up feeling like at the end of the day...
Mr. Brillsby, speedy in painter. I don't know what he keeps in that case...
sketching on the Portland buses! (but not the top right boy, that was my ex-boyfriend sitting semi patiently on our couch)
friends of mine, reffed from photos, making very silly faces...
the ex-boyfriend again, but more bleachy, grudgingly still while I sketched him in painter...
Newer things! From the last three months.
I like drawing people from old photographs a great deal. They just don't make humans like that anymore...
See, like these dudes from a magazine, they got nothing on the people above...
Studying muscles is good, if not too immediately gratifying...
I was asked for this specific thing by a friend, I take no blame for it, speedy in painter...
And lastly, my goodness, things from the last three days!
All for the Alice in Wonderland compo on The Poo, you see.
Alice, maybe, photoshop...
Mr. W. Rabbit, definitely, photoshop...
Doodles for various Wonderland denizens...
A possible layout/colour scheme and such...
And some such uncoloured!
I hope that's a good start.

My mediocre street sketch of, erm, myself, in Portland, suddenly gigantic beside a bus stop, and yet somehow at the same time very squished, like the feet and the head. Alas. Drawn mostly in Pioneer Square, experimenting unsuccessfully with a couple of prismacolor markers I had sitting in my bag.
Life drawing mostly, mostly at the airport on my way back from Portland. I wish Huntsville had some open drawing classes, but I haven't found anything yet.
No models right now, so I draw from photographs. A big book I checked out of the library, The National Portraiture Gallery or something like that. Is fun.
More Alice stuff, the Duchess, the Queen of Hearts, the caterpillar (it's a mattress on a stack of milk crates and cinder blocks that I will eventually make more exaggerated and surrealy mushroom like), and a resketch of Alice that I'm going to develop further in place of the original Alice paint.
I came upon the great idea of turning the garden of living flowers in to a strip club, only to realize that the flowers are in through the looking glass, not wonderland. Alas. I may do it anyway.

Really nice work, you got some great observation skills.

Two pictures from a very strange and involved dream I had a couple of weeks ago. The stumpy girl's hands were burned off, as if she was made of wood, very Lavinia from Titus Andronicus. The guys are pencil, the girl was a little under an hour in OpenCanvas 1.
Just doodling from my giant files of random photo ref from the internet.
The things that live in my brain, I just don't know.
Sketches on the subway. I'm sure you can pick out which are out of my head, and which are me furitively staring at other passengers.
OC comic strip weirdness! The first was a little under and hour, and I have no idea how long the second one took because I was actually getting dressed up to go out as I was making it. Nearly live autobiographical comics, heh.

Three short sketches, referenced from the CGSociety 15 Minute Sketchathon Reference thread.
17 minutes and 15 minutes, respectively.
40 minutes for this, there is a saved 15 minute version, but hooboy, no.
A WIP, painting a sketch I'd had laying around for aaaages, finally starting to do something with it.

Look upon my atrocious perspective, ye mighty, and despair! ...Superboy silliness, done for the Superboy meme on LiveJournal. Which seems to be staying much smaller than the...
Batgirl meme! I know. They both look like like art school goth/punks. Maybe their alter egos both go to SVA, eh? Yes, that's the answer.
This was an experiment. I'm not a fan of the actress, but I see so many other people try to draw here and not quite capture her likeness. I wondered if there was something inherently difficult about drawing her (no, really, I swear, some people do not lend themselves well to being drawn). I think I did okay, except for the mouth.
Update on the previous WIP. I'm afraid I've stopped working on her for now, so much "must pay rent" work to do, alas.

Playing around with technique I don't normally use, carving the image out with higher opacity brushes than I usually use. I kind've like working like that.
Warren Ellis asked for female readers of his to submit headers for a column he's doing at Pulse, , he plans to put a new header up with each column and link back to the artist. This is mine, albeit, twice the size that it would appear if he should use it. Texture from the excellent and generous Rob G.
I am decidedly unprolific. I don't draw for myself enough. Just work, work, work, work, arrrrgghhh.
