Slow progress

After months of ill health, more visits to the doctor than I care to recall, and several weeks of meds, I'm feeling...not quite human, but at least like a somewhat higher level form of undead than the zombie I've resembled lately. With a bit of luck this ameliorative trend won't be overly hindered by the rapidly approaching rainy season. I miss you all, and I'm desperately looking forward to the (hopefully not too distant) day when I can get back to making art!

(no subject)

So apparently I wasn't done being sick. I'm able to move around a bit now, but I still get a headache if I sit at my desk too long, so I'm staying mostly afk (and away from tablet) to avoid making it worse. Apologies to those of you still awaiting art.

SketchFest 25

Sorry for the delay, everyone! I was feeling pretty sick from Sunday afternoon through most of yesterday, so I didn't get around to posting these until now. I did seven paintings over the weekend, including "Bathing Time", which is probably the most popular Sketch Fest piece I've ever done!


prompt: Fell through


prompt: bathing time


prompt: catch me if you can


prompt: feeding a friend


prompt: shutter bug


prompt: an army of potato golems armed with garden implements


prompt: baby dragons waddling across the highway

Sketchfest!

I'm taking a break from working on meeksmas art to go play at Sketch Fest this weekend! My fellow artists and I will be taking prompts until noon (Alaska time) on Sunday, so come join the fun! As usual, I will be posting individual pictures to Facebook and twitter and the whole set here when they're all done. You can also keep an eye on my artist page for new additions. :)

Mika's Second Annual Birthday Art Sale!

It's my birthday tomorrow, and I want to make you some art to celebrate! Last year's icon sale was a great success, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with for me to draw this time!

You set the prices!

Tips of $1 or more get you an icon, 100 x 100 pixels, featuring the subject of your choice.

Tips of $5 or more get you a sketch based on your prompt! These will be 700 pixels on the longest side, and of about the same level of complexity as my Sketch Fest work.

I love discovering new stories to read, but I'd like to get these done in a reasonable amount of time, so in order to minimize the amount of reading/research involved, please try to limit yourself to twitter-length prompts (~140 characters). Links to reference pics or character descriptions are welcome, but if you want to link me to a novel, please consider requesting a Story Sketch instead. Unless you ask for something that would look better in monochrome, all artwork will be full colour.

I recently found out that the local art school holds open life drawing sessions over the summer, so proceeds from this sale will go toward studio fees and art supplies. It's been a long time since I've drawn from a live model, and I'm really looking forward to it!

Bonus! Last year's event brought in $29 in tips; equal to the age I was turning. If tips reach or exceed $30 this year, all participants will be entered in a draw to receive a free figure drawing, on actual paper!

Get your art here!

Or let me know if you'd like to use an alternate payment service.

quick question

I'm considering doing an icon/sketch sale for my birthday this weekend, would anyone here be interested? I could use a break from all the nitpicky portfolio stuff I've been working on :P
