No tentacle love FOR YOU!

I pulled a literal all-nighter and 'finished' this for Art Order's 'Drow vs. Mindflayer' challenge. I'm not happy with the design at all, but there are tiny portions I enjoyed, so it wasn't a TOTAL loss. My sons, ages 9 and 11, were my models and the 9 year old wasn't overly impressed with the fact I gave 'him' boobs, but he was faboo with the grimacing expression. I want to thank Melissa Findley for pushing me to finish, regardless, because it helped me get yet another step closer to actually implementing plans to shove my art in the direction I want to go with it. *phew; that was a blathery sentence!* Anywho, thanks, Mel! And good luck on the challenge! I think you'll kick purple ass...

I've got such an idiot crush on Butch Walker. And I'm way too creaky for such foolishness, but hey, let an old woman have her harmless fun! I hardly ever do fan art, but I was gifted with a ton of colored pencils, so I finally put them to use. Prismacolors on plain brown cardboard. I'm sure it'll decay in a year. Oh well! Nothing gold stays...and Butch has the sexiest hollow cheeks in the biz. So that's my loose tie-in for Illustration Friday! Ta!
