I am still getting used to granting access / subscribing but generally:

1. I am happy for people to subscribe, especially for artwork and stuff.

2. I don't always grant access straight away. It's mostly because of my energy levels. :) If I drop you, it may be for a variety of reasons, sometimes it might just be a drifting in our compatibility. You're always welcome to stay for art updates, or whatever you like.

3. I feel strongly about trigger warnings and cutting things for sensitive content. I will try and catch a lot of things here under cuts (or filters). I have endeavoured to make this a safe space. However this is first and foremost a safe space for me, which means sometimes I am posting when I'm not in the right frame of mind to trigger warn or place things under cuts.

8 things you should know about me if you are considering reading/adding this journal. )

Star Wolf sold within a couple of hours of being listed on Etsy, before I had a chance to advertise her anywhere else. And Rainbow Wolf sold within a couple of hours of being listed on Facebook.

In other news, the She Walks In Shadows anthology by Innsmouth Free Press - a Kickstarted Lovecraftian woman-only (in terms of writers/artists/editors etc.) anthology that I have a piece of artwork in, has been nominated for a 2016 World Fantasy Award. Which is pretty nifty.

All artwork is traditional art on illustration board, using ink, watercolour pencils, pencils and some metallic/iridescent/pearlescent paint for accents. :)

Uncoloured woofs.

These will all be made available for sale.

But in the meantime I love this part, where they're black and white, and still taking form.

There's like a whole bunch I haven't posted here, and managed to put everywhere else (after Facebook/Instagram/DeviantArt/Etsy/Tumblr...sometimes I get lax about Dreamwidth. Social media is exhausting).

All of these are watercolour pencil / pencil / ink on illustration board. With some metallic and/or iridescent acrylic as highlights. Some are available for sale.


Unicorn Moon Sickle - Courtship Available

Under a cut you will also find a bilby with some Celtic knotwork, a Fiji Iguana and Dandelions, a Midnight Owl, a Dragon and a Hamerkop. Don't know what a Hamerkop is? I didn't either, until quite recently... If you already knew, that's awesome )

Here are some larger pieces that are yet to be coloured. One is a commission (I'm not officially taking on commissions at all, esp. not re: domesticated animals/pets/figurative stuff, but she is a long-time client and very patient with me, and she always gives me the most interesting subjects that ping me hard, in this case, a Fiji Iguana - and dandelions, heh. The dandelions are sentimental, she is a zookeeper/zoologist, and the Fiji Iguana she cared for used to love them). The other is a return to an old subject that I first/last drew in 2008. The Unicorn Moon-Sickle Bird of Paradise. I'd always loved the colour scheme and wanted to return to the faux birds of paradise again. So...I just did.

All done with 0.1 and 0.5 fineliner on illustration board.

You can also see a time-lapse video of some of the process here.

So I have been arting a bit more than usual this year (still less than I used to, but I've been really enjoying it, which I think is the main thing).

Here's some from a little while back. The Red Dragon was a birthday gift, the bilby was because I really don't think the Australian bilby gets nearly enough love - strange rabbit-like marsupial that it is. And the eagle owl because I just really like owls? I find them easy subjects, and they always look so fierce. :D (When they don't look derpy).

As always, all in fineliner on illustration board, with watercolour / watercolour pencil / coloured pencil / and some metallic paint highlights.


Midnight Eagle Owl

I was so sure I'd put this up?
Like, whoops.
Anyway, I finished this a while back.
Watercolour + gold acrylic and some iridescence on the birbs.
Common Ravens instead of Australian Ravens for once.
Will eventually be listed for sale on Etsy if I ever get around to it.

The Wisdom of the Poppy





And another birb. This one an Australian Raven.
And Corymbia ficifolia.
A coloured part of the Inktober challenge.
Again, will be listed on Etsy eventually if I ever get around to it, lol.
I used to be so diligent about that kind of thing.


Australian Raven and Corymbia ficiolia

Phew, Photobucket seems to be uploading things again.

Anyway! Not yet coloured, ink on illustration board (0.1 and 0.5 size only), this was a good way to spend a day where I couldn't find the will to write, but could apparently find the will to illustrate this instead o.o

This is also the first time I've listed anything at all on Etsy in such a bloody long time. And it's so weird. Like, I used to do it so often and now it's been so long.

Also it got to 42C (107F) and was raining. Quite a lot. Didn't cool down at all. *shakes fist at Perth quietly*


Lady Amherst's Pheasant and Shorea

Sardonyx from Steven Universe (she gets her own bit because I so rarely do anything that approaches fanart. :D

And one more. )
moonvoice: (o - hp - the supenuse! mind boogling!)
I've been transitioning from watercolour pencils (which are great), to watercolours (also great) and I've been really enjoying it.

Though, watercolours are scary expensive if you're trying to get 'not' student colours. Yikes. Especially in Australia.


Red Fox and Morning Glory: Heavenly Blue

These were the ones I did when I was really too tired to do anything else at all.

My grumpy birbs.

They took hardly any time, and they were cute and fun and silly.

Yes, I think I just might be able to handle the They Might Be Giants concert tonight, though I didn't make wordcount today due to nerves. *shudders*

Also, here's some more ink work! These were all just so much fun. I'm thinking about doing more of these in the future.

There's always moar.
Because you know, when I do art, I don't just do one thing. But ALL the things. (Actually 31 days of things. I didn't quit Inktober! Go me! And my wordcount for the month skated in at 59k. So a very productive month which explains the total burnout I've been feeling for the past week, lol.)

With this particular series, I made a point of researching flora found within the region that the animal is naturally found. This led to me drawing a lot of flowers I'd never drawn before, and made me realise that I love drawing flowers. e.e


Black-Footed Ferret (Mustela nigripes) and Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata)

I went to Jacksons today.
My god that's a dangerous store.
(For those who don't know it's an art supply store).
I always feel ridiculous buying like a tiny tube of watercolour paint that costs like...
$50.00 O.O

Thankfully it lasts forever.

I've been working on Inktober pieces and I'm actually super happy that I've managed to produce something every day. And some have been of a calibre that I'm happy enough to sell. Anyway, I'll start posting them up here now. A lot will end up coloured. It's been a ton of fun, it hasn't taken away from my ability to write, and it's given me time to catch up on television for the first time in ages. Man I missed art. I need to make more time for it.

All of these pieces are done on illustration board, with a 0.1 fineliner.

Glen's currently on a 4 hour flight home. (No wait, he's been delayed more).

I've been playing Dragon Age (...I'm going to be playing it forever, you can't stop me).

Also it took me like 50 hours to finally find Rifts less scary. *sighs at self*

It's been an interesting weekend.

Glen went to Melbourne to see the Eagles play in the Grand Final, and I stayed here and Mum stayed over with me (I'm not so good on my own at night). It was good, a little stressful just because my routine was thrown off so much, and I feel a bit ill now. So I'm sharing some clouds. Cloud therapy! :)


Do you know how much cirrocumulus we get here? Do you? ALL THE TIME.

I've been arting very casually lately. But I AM participating in Inktober (draw an original ink piece every day for 31 days). We'll see how it goes.

I've not been open for commissions for about two years now. I still get asked, especially for totems, and I put people on a waitlist. But I honestly have no idea when I'll come back to it. I want to one day. Right now my path has me going a completely different direction.


Borzoi sketch. Borzoi have weird heads.

So, here's the thing, recently I got myself a Moleskine journal (okay okay, I get why everyone loves them now). And then I didn't do anything with it for ages. And then the other day I was bored and so not feeling the writing and technically on holiday anyway so...

So I drew some ballpoint fishes. Tool of the trade: black kilometrico pen.

Actually really happy with how they turned out! )
moonvoice: (o - garfield - too tired to go on)
It's that time of year again. Actually it's just past that time of year again. But it's the time of year when all the jewel/Christmas beetles come out! I love these Anoplognathus and we had a really bad year for them last year, so I worried that something about my garden (or the weather) was killing them off. But this year they came back with a vengeance, and there's just been heaps of them. :D
