A witch and her reluctant familiar

This is an ink drawing I made of a witch and her reluctant familiar.  I made the drawing awhile back and colored it in Photoshop.  I never posted the black and white illustration before.

Fun with watercolor pens

I made an illustration of aliens with a set of watercolor pens. Santa gave the pens to my son for Christmas. My son and I had a good time making a bunch of drawings with the watercolor pens Christmas morning.

Drawing robots with my son.

I drew a few quick robots and a monster with my four year old son.  He drew his own robots.  He likes drawing just like his dad.  He is really into Astro Boy right at this particular moment.  I included his drawing below mine.

Tim the tiefling

A tiefling in the forest.  A tiefling in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, is a horned humanoid race.   They usually have tails, maybe this Tim has a tale to tell about his lack of tail.

Caveman barbarian and his pet dog-wolf.

Just your typical drawing of a caveman barbarian and his pet dog-wolf.  They both look like they just saw something that made them mad.

None Shall Pass

Was looking at some old 1980s role playing illustrations when I came up with this guy.  He has an old school RPG (Role Playing Game) feel about him.

My Netflix’s Hilda fan art. #Hilda

I made a fan art illustration of characters from Hilda.  Hilda is a cartoon on Netflix based on a series of graphic novels by cartoonist Luke Pearson.  My son enjoys when I  read to him the Hilda graphic novels.  We watched the show together when it came out on Netflix.  Hilda is about a fearless girl who lives in a Nordic-like land full of trolls, elves, ghosts, giants and other mysterious creatures.  Hilda (pictured in front) gets into adventures with her two Sparrow Scout friends, her mom and a cast of other characters.  It is a very charming show.  For all its charm, my son really likes the scary parts best.

Happy 2019! Here is my illustration of an optimistic adventurer.

Happy New Year!  This is my illustration of an optimistic adventurer setting off into the world looking for fame and glory.  I thought about the new year and came up with the idea of this confident man having yet encountered any deadly obstacles.  Happy 2019!  I hope it is a great year.
