Nice Guy likes to dash across the field like a speeding panther, WOOSH!

Then he usually disappears from sight into some bushes…

Maybe he is resting somewhere in the grass in private. Perhaps taking some time to be thoughtful of the day’s events? Or even counting the petals on a dandelion?

Whatever it was that he was doing, it gets interrupted by mysterious water which falls from the sky. It has been raining a little bit more often, the summer was quite dry.

This will take some getting used to, Poor soggy kitty.

I wanted to draw a seahorse, but just about halfway through drawing this picture I realized that it looks a lot more like a sea dragon… Whoops!

Either way I’m happy with how it turned out, despite the lack of environment to swim around in.

I decided to draw Uni with a kitty who looks somewhat like my girl cat, Lisa.

Much like Lisa, this kitty wants to go everywhere with her friend!

They are unstoppable when they are together!

Except when one of them gets sick… Then they are stopped temporarily!

When kitty gets better its all headbonks and purrs from there!

I always feel a bit sad to see that most of the things that grew in summer fade away, slowly. Leaves are slowly thrown down at first… those rose blossoms drop. Then before you know it there are PILES of colorful leaves everywhere!

Yet I am still happy as long as I look forward to the things which do not occur in the summer. The cold air, the icy dew that will no doubt begin showing up mysteriously overnight.

Time to get the winter coat ready!

Inktober is back this year! For those of you who were around when I last participated in this art event, you know what it means.

To be clear: I’m going to try to make a drawing a day in ink for the whole month of October! I love the fact that I don’t have to color anything and I feel encouraged to practice drawing knowing that there are many others who are also participating : )

So here it is: The Dandy Lion !

Its petals sparkle in the morning dew, now that is fine and dandy.

The lion which has petals for a mane, never needs to buy shampoo. It also has unusually sweet breath… like flowers… Mmm.

I really like this character I made, her name is “Uni” (for lack of anything better to call her).

She is a Unisus, otherwise known as an Alicorn. I think she is feeling down and the little birds want her to come fly with them.

Here is a still frame so you can see what the finished drawing will look like, just in case you are at work or someplace where you don’t want Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” blasting from your phone.

I was going to make this dragon on all fours, more like a serpent, but my canvas was already big enough and I don’t like huge file sizes so… I made him like a retired grand-dragon. Complete with clenched fist and a sign to keep the young-uns at bay while he relaxes.

If kittens could really play video games… it would be cute until the sounds from games kept you up at night.

and what if the cats had a temper when they lost the game?

I’m trying to get better at coloring my drawings, usually I have very little motivation to draw backgrounds or landscapes.

I’ve lived in an artistically black and white world for most of my life, but it isn’t depressing as some people might think. Sometimes I use too much color, which can distract from the drawing itself. So I’ll admit I’ve avoided color because of my idea of “nice colors” are usually neon or greyish tinges which other people can have an aversion to.

Anyways, here is the kitten I promised you:

Yay, I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out! I’d say its one of my better ‘speed drawings’ on my channel. -Feel free to share if you are so moved 😀
