Now that I got a proper tablet to use, I’ve taken to coloring more readily. One of the things I did to get into things was participate in a lineart coloring contest. We’ll see how it goes but it was great practice if anything! Great thanks to Suiish for letting me take part.
Done with a Wacom Intuos 4 Large tablet and Photoshop CS6.
This was a gift I did for one of two people I was talking to a lot at the time; this person was someone I met at Animazement 2008, and had been talking to since. I had always joked with her fitting in right a home with my fantasy settings, so you could say this was a nod-off to that.
She liked it, and I even made a reference how she liked the hot peppers in the garden. So the entire idea evolved into her persona being a “harvest girl”. I had a lot of fun coloring this one, especially since I was trying some watercolor brushes I had gotten for Photoshop.

This is one of two art gifts I commissioned to two friends I was talking to on a regular basis at the time. I kind of envisioned them different ways, and had chalked up this friend to Sanae from Touhou. She did enjoy it and I had fun getting it commissioned, along with coloring it.

A few years ago, online dA buddy Skylanth was complaining how people would ask if she drew things while in public. “OMG did you draw that?!” they would exclaim. This began a repetitive question and she lost her patience in a journal one day:
“You know what? No, I ddn’t draw it. A man with a tuba on his head appeared, gave me this sketchbook and told me to PRETEND.”
That stuck in my head for a few years since I read it, but I was worried that I wouldn’t give it justice if I drew it out. I finally decided to just get it down as 3 years had passed since the idea was mentioned. Better late than never, I suppose.
In case you’re confused with this mysterious tuba-donning stranger, the face he’s making is the duckface. Just to help clarify things.
This is the last piece of the Disney/Touhou crossover series currently. I may do more in the future, but for now the project closes out with this last and seventh piece.
For the longest while I knew I wanted to put someone in Reimu’s outfit but it took well over two years till I finally came to this combination. Special thanks to Animazement buddy AnnaC93 for suggesting this to happen.

A not-so-normal egg and biscuits breakfast I had one morning. Biscuits are from Pillsbury, egg has half-poached/fried.
This was something I cooked up the same evening I got my used Intuos 4 tablet. I had also just bought a brush pack for traditional oil/watercolor patterns, so I was giving that a whirl too. This was quick and rough, nothing too developed. Also was trying to get used to using a big tablet like that at the time as well.
