Sketch Dump Nov '08 by eshkenazi Sketch Dump Nov '08 by eshkenazi
See...I have been drawing a bit. Here and there (well, a few of these are a couple of months old. But whatever.)

1. or something. I think it hurts when her wings pop out of her back and are all "rawr...we are wings!" and stuff. I think I wanted to paint this one and make her all drenched in blood. Fun. =D

2. A while back I did this drawing of Angela floating in a tank of liquid in her father's lab. But I never finished it. I did find that sketch a while back and decided to fix some of the anatomy problems and such. Um...I don't know why she's almost naked now. Or why her hair is so long. Or why it doesn't really look anything like Angela. <.<

3. Plea's contest prize...maybe. I was reading Trinity Blood the other day and found this page where Able was all :( and my brain went "Avion!" so I went and sketched out a similar pose. For that reason, I don't know if I'll actually use it. Plus...something about it kind of annoys me.

4. I like putting wings on fish for some reason.

5. Snail faerie?

6. Newish character of mine--Zhori. She's a fiesty red head who sings like you wouldn't believe. She plays the flute too...and harp. But her voice is her main can heal or drive you mad. Depending on what sort of mood she's in. XD She has a brother, Des, whom I've never drawn. He sings too. =o

7. The only drawing in existence of my character Derym. His pose looks kind of...painful. BUT...yeah. The attitude definitely comes across. (He does usually wear a shirt...I just didn't care to give him one just then). He's such a sleeze bag--but a loveable one somehow.

8. Celtic knot...

9. 'nother knot (only lopsided this time).

10. Um...yeah. His name is Haven. He's in a couple of other paintings and his white crow is in several as well. He hasn't told me his whole story yet but I do know he's a dream shepherd. He doesn't give or take dreams anywhere. He just watches over them.

11. Part of a commission I'm doing for someone of a very enlightened werewolf...

weeell i haven't been here in ages, have i?! i didn't even know about the new layout bit. confusing. so - yeah. i love love LOVE snail faeries. that's because i love snails. & faeries, i suppose. you should definitely incorporate the concept into something in the near future.
other than that, let's stick to the order -
1. yeah i got that was angela. i really like the perspective & it looks very good anatomy wise except for the feet, which are at this point a bit undefined. hey, it's a sketch! duh!
2. i really didn't get this was angela. but - that's okay. & if she were to be floating in a tank you should either make her completely naked or put clothes on. like, a random protective plastic hull or something the like. personally i think you could make her hair waft around in front of her adult bits - come on, i'm sure you'd buy into that!
3. cute feet! & really nicely done shirt, though i don't like the trousers [look too short for my taste & the hem looks weird]. pose is well executed.
4. er - i'm not TOO much into dolphins. this doesn't look much like you, actually. it could be a logo for a delphinarium or stuff like that. isn't that cool? maybe you should try to sell it.
6. i don't think her clothes look comfortable. & personally i think this sort of hair do looks stupid on most women but i think she looks the way you want her to & if i were you i'd be pretty happy with this character sketch.
7. that looks QUITE uncomfortable. or just - weird. his upper body is well done as well as his left leg, his right one could maybe do with a bit more work.
8. awesome knot [there's not much more to say really, is there??].
9. er - yeah - another awesome knot? just not shaded.
10. reminds me of x-men's archangel. he definitely needs more work on his body than any of the other characters [well except for the snail faerie maybe].
11. you seem to be practising elephants? ;)
love the scenery/setting, although i somehow feel dragonflies or glow worms would look cooler than butterflies in this one.

& by the way, what did you put on that parcel?! i need to pay £47. that's a hell of a lot. + another £8 parcelforce parcel handling fee. i HATE parcelforce. hrmpf.

You have to pay 47 more pounds!?! That's insane. I paid almost $40 to ship that package which is almost twice what I expected to pay to begin with. Why are you having to pay so much more? :(
miss-sixty Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2009
well, tell ME about it. the 47 pounds are vat though. i did expect some vat but parcelforce handling fees on top of that, now that really is the meaning of the bloody cheek.
maybe you can find some better distributor next time. although i don't even know if there'll be a next time anytime soon, what with the pound tumbling into the abyss.
i think the whole vat thing doesn't make sense anyway. admittedly i don't really know what the official reasoning behind this is/how it all works but if I bought something over there & then brought it to Europe myself I wouldn't have to pay.
Now does this make any sense at all?!? I really don't understand it.

Hmm...I didn't think about using another carrier. I usually just send everything through the USPS because it's the most convenient and usually the cheapest. Maybe next time I should use fedex. Would that help do you think?

no idea? we can marter our brains over that when it's actually time.

I'm so happy to see new work from you, I've missed it! These are all amazing, you're getting so much better with anatomy, and the knotwork is incredible.
Love the flying fish, it's so cute.:D
