I saw this floating around on Instagram, and decided to follow the subgroup of people that did “Best 12” instead of #2018bestnine. I took my best piece out of each month and made the collage out of that. Most of these are in my gallery, some are missing as they’re not posted int he other sections of my site yet. But do enjoy; looking forward to how 2019’s will look at the end of the year.
During the summer, I drew a random doodle of a character whom I dubbed “egghead girl”. I was specifically stylized for what I typically draw, and was inspired to do a pencil sketch about a month later. She evolved from the headsketch into this, a bookish character that runs a half library/half art museum, cataloguing strange finds for people to see.
All that time later, I finally got around to translating this to digital format. I didn’t focus too much on the background, mainly wanting to color the character in whole and show some tone with the ambient color.
This is probably my last art piece for the year, and I’m glad to close it out on such a note. See you next year, everyone.
As Christmas Eve is here, I hope all of my followers and such as a great holidays. I’m nestled away on a PC next to the tree tonight, so as I wait for Christmas morning, I wish you Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.

Well, tonight it one of the first times in ages I’m able to relax on Christmas Eve. However, I was behind on art obligations, so I decided to poach off of my Mom’s computer to draw. Why? Well, it’s within tossing distance of the Christmas tree and the kitchen. That way I’m not isolated in my room, holiday togetherness and whatnot.
So my online friend CDMR Taranava ran a “greeting card” contest with the Mobius PVE group; the prize? Two Galnet paint pack for the Anaconda. Me and CMDR Jack Webb were the lucky winners to walk away with said prizes.
Personally, I’m happy with how this came out. I see a few things that could be tweaked, and I did this on someone else’s PC as I took a desk break away from my normal computer for Christmas. I have some other gift art I need to get out of the way, but this came first as I forgot the contest ended Sunday. Oops. ;_;
So there is a little tangent I went down this holiday; trying to establish a connection with someone I barely touched base with in 2004-2005. I did speak to them some back in the day, meeting on a place called the Chex Quest Talk forums. When I started going to Walters State I forgot about them, but recently I found them and decided to reach back out.
Suffice to say it went well, and I regret not doing it sooner. I could truly say I know what it feels like connecting with someone who you haven’t spoken to in over a decade. As a sort of gift for him, I drew him and Ki’voosh under some mistletoe, as he took a liking to her from my Ellowwood Keepers piece. And what do you know, he loved it.
While this concept was something I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time, I started on it just around the time @gettingoutofmyhometown was having her Instagram giveaway. If you draw something with her character for the event, your art gets a chance to be featured, along with being given 3 entries for the giveaway.
So I did a different version of this piece, putting her character in as the protagonist instead of who I was originally going to go with. Honestly I think it came out well. She was impressed with it as well, going to print out a copy to hang up!
As for the story behind the original plot? I’ll do the original version I had intended first, but I’ve been making notes and I do plan on writing about it. But it involves a prototype space-superiority fighter, an old engineer looking for young blood to fly it, and a looming threat intentionally being buried under wraps.
You’ll definitely be hearing about this story in the future.
This was gift art to KobaltWolf, admin of a Zelda fan page and a streamer of Overwatch. She absolutely loves Hanzo and after a joke about “forgetting how to princess”, I knew I had to draw the two together.
Thankfully cweinmanart was there to help me out, and this was the result of that idea. Kobalt loved it and even uses for her Discord and streams. Cool!

This is a piece I had done earlier in the year, but had forgotten to post here on the site. Whoops.
But yes, this is a digital redraw of a piece I had done in 2009 on paper. I used my Cintiq on this one to redraw it, to great effect. I loved how it turned out and think its pretty interesting I actually finished this, as the original paper drawing was a WIP I didn’t complete.
To be honest, I really like how this came out. Especially with my better drawing skills, Jennifer really came to life here. Here’s that I can do her greater justice in the near future.
