Week off, whaaaaat?

So I had a crazy random week off! Much free time art was had. Walk with me: 

I've got a friend up Seattle-way who just started a new job as a hiring manager and needed a few multi-tasking octopus designs for work. Did this bad-boy in Illustrator! Look at those beautiful, vectory curves.
And I finally finished a new underwater background for Formicide. It took a long time because I made it needlessly ornate. Honestly it was because the audiobook I was listening to at the time was really good...and I didn't want to stop listening to it. Boy is THAT a first world problem!
And I also made a lovely oyster prop!

Also I got a KITTEN three weeks ago. She's a delight, but also very crazy. And she is really into burying her poops, let me tell you. 

And the rest is all concept art for the young adult book that I have finally begun to write and it is going badly because writing requires more patience than anybody has ever had in the history of time. But I'm going to do it anyways! That is how you learn, or so I have been told. 

 And also some pictures of men. Because I realized I draw men never.

Lately noodling

Been busy of late what with work and you know, getting a KITTEN. Drawings of which will surely be forthcoming. Y'know, once she stops being so very kitten-energy and starts being more cat-lazy and wanting to play aaaaall the time. It is the most adorable burden. 
Anyways, here I was just trying to see what kind of a face I could draw without any specific reference. And it turned out....meh? I dunno, I ended up using my own face as reference because I'm a big old cheater but then I was trying to make the girl look hispanic but I'm not hispanic sooooo... I think it just ended up kind of weird lookin'? Not the worst thing ever though?

And this was just me doodling elf girls because sometimes I do that to blow off steam. Blame Lord of the Rings in my formative years. Click to enlarge for both!
