Sunlit Veranda - Complete

Sunlit Veranda started with this sketch supplied by the client (posted here with his permission). He wanted me to take the general idea presented in the sketch and, in a word, "Cutepetify" it. :)

The first step after that was to work out the look of the woman in my style while still capturing the essence of the woman from the client's sketch. Using charcoal pencil on newsprint, I did a number of character design sketches, shown here.

Once that was done, I worked out the general composition and final character design which you can see in this earlier blog post.

Then I colored in the background, which you can see the step-by-step process for below.

I generally save coloring the character for last. (If you think of the background art as the "veggies", the necessary nutritious parts of the picture, then the character is the "dessert", the tasty treat at the end.) :)

More of Bunni from the archives

I resaved some more of our older pictures to make them much bigger and higher quality, and thus easier to enjoy the details. Here's a selection from late 2001 - early 2002, featuring Cutepet favorite, Bunni!

Kiran - Full Moon

I was going through the old image archives, and found this picture of our Kiran character from 2002. For what ever reason, she was only briefly posted on Cutepet. I'm not sure why the image wasn't on the website long... maybe it got lost in the shuffle when we were redoing the web design. In any case, it's still a charming pic of our witch lady, so I thought I would share it on the blog (it's also been added to 2002 gallery on Cutepet where it belongs). Enjoy! :)

Alone on the Veranda - WIP

New picture in the works. A woman touches herself in the privacy of her secluded veranda. At least, she thinks no one is watching. :)

Here is the character design and sketch so far.

Angelissa on a Cloud WIP

There's a new picture in the works of our favorite four-winged angel, Angelissa! Right now she is completely penciled and awaiting inks and color.

Here's a look at the progress so far:

Every picture starts with an idea. This rough thumbnail shows the general composition of Angelissa leaning back on a cloud while touching herself.

The idea was further refined into a slightly larger drawing This one is ballpoint pen with blue pencil for wings.

The final pencil art was done on 11"x 14" bristol in graphite and blue pencil. Her négligée will be drawn on another layer.

Stay tuned for the finished piece!
