A walk in the rain with Namuu



I'm very pleased with this background. It's a couple ink washes of grey, blue, and green, with marker for the shadows of leaves. The raindrops are from masking fluid and white ink, with the ones that were masked being brighter white for an effect of different depths. (The white ink isn't very opaque, which is annoying sometimes, but works well here.)

This is fanart of a fairly obscure Japanese comic, Nightmare Inspector. Many of my fanart pieces I just put in my Deviantart gallery, but I'm thinking of starting to put just about everything I do here as well. I like art blogs that update almost daily. What do you think, anyone?

Happy and excited


Bishops at the installation Mass for the Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter. A wonderful, historic event, and I admit seeing the design all over made me a little giddy.

Fraternity of St. Alban medal

Design for a medal. I'd like to see if it got made into an actual metal medal, but I'm not sure what the client has done with it.

Sherlock doodle

I absolutely love the BBC series Sherlock. I've been doodling copies of screenshots to try to get the hang of Benedict Cumberbatch's likeness... he has such a unique face. ^_^ This one is not quite right, but good enough that I'm not too ashamed to show it.

I am completely exhausted. My sister is recovering (well, praise God) from an appendectomy and I cleaned half the house this morning in the possibility of an illustrious guest tomorrow...
All the while, I keep drawing.
