Red

...red puppets? redheads? I was trying to think of something to tie this post together but it doesn't really work. Ah, well.
Photobucket

I finally got around to watching "Being Elmo", and it was so good! I'm weak when it comes to anything remotely sad or heartwarming, so I was totally tearing up at my desk. It's pretty inspiring, so if you haven't seen it yet you absolutely should.

And since it's the only other bit of new art I have, here's some Brave fanart.
I actually tried drawing Merida during my plane trip a few weeks ago, but I didn't really have any reference so it was more like a random redhead...with a bow. Also, it helped me realize that it's not that fun drawing on a red-eye flight. The lighting sucks and people are grumpy.



I'm sad that it took me a month to update this :( Some pretty time-consuming (and exciting!) projects are coming up, but I'll try to do better here!

haha i LOVE that gif! if only an elmo would pop out anytime we feel sad to give us a hug, the world would be a better place. Gorgeous watercolors too!

I got to go to a Brave art opening and there were so many different versions of Merida that I think yours would fit right in. Also yes, being Elmo was a great documentary. My eyes got a bit watery when he cut up his dad's leather jacket and his dad was nothing but supportive. I wish I had that in my life. Such an amazing journey in that movie.

I feel sorry for that puppeteer's arm.. there's gonna be some serious carpal tunnel developing in that shoulder.

I like your sexy redheads.
