There’s only an hour left in the day but Happy St Patrick’s Day all the same! Today’s sketch dailies challenge was Leprechaun. I wasn’t going to do it initially but I need to try and draw things out of my comfort zone!

Got too ambitious and couldn’t finish this in time for today’s Sketch Dailies. Today’s topic was Medusa! Oh well, maybe I will finish her one day :)

An old sketch from a few years ago. It’s rare for me to look at a piece I did years ago and still like it. This was an art trade with my good friend Heather. You can see her beautiful work at helloheath-art.tumblr.com

This was my contribution to 5 Second Day at Titmouse! Dunuts! Yeah!!! I had such great time working on it. This was my first time using Flash to animate rather than exporting frames from Photoshop. It was definitely a challenge getting it done from start to finish over the course of a few days.  

So many great animations this year. Way to go, Titmouse artists!
