"Lilah" - A quick sketch from tonight.
I accidentally closed the original file without saving anything and lost all my layers. But this was just a quick sketch anyway, so no real harm done, I suppose! Sometimes the cmd+s and cmd+q buttons are so close to each other…
Love Will Thaw
There you go, Charles, being all badass again… ;)
Tizrah “Tizzy” Mistlethorp, a halfling rogue and de facto “mother” of her adventuring group. This was one of very few descriptions I was given that actually went into any detail about the character’s face! This was a fun one.
My wonderful sweetie commissioned Evan Dahm to draw my D&D character, Tizzy, for my birthday. I’m so unbelievably happy about this. Evan Dahm is the coolest, and I’m so glad that my partner got me something that also helps support one of my favourite artists. Best birthday gift.
Thank you so much, Evan, she looks perfect!

It’s officially summer, I guess.
I feel ya…
"Astrid" - By Heather L. Gilbraith
Manga Studio 5EX.
I’m still working on the colouring! For now I wanted to post the line art, because it took me a little while and I think it’s pretty spiffin’. :)
I wanted to draw Astrid because she had the potential to be so badass, and I found her representation in HTTYD2 a little… lacking. Don’t get me wrong, she was still pretty cool, but she could have been so much more…
Anyway! No sense whining. HTTYD2 was still a lot of fun. I’ll see what I can do about colouring this up, but I’m not much of a colourist… As usual, comments and constructive criticisms are always appreciated. :)
I used the HB Real Pencil brush for Manga Studio 5EX made by Frenden. His brushes are amazing, seriously, go check them out. He makes them for Photoshop, too!
I was bored working on the Astrid sketch, and started writing out some notes to myself on how to handle fur/hair. There’s a lot of fur on Astrid, oi.
Anyway! Took a few quick screenshots incase anyone else would find it interesting or useful. Maybe I’ll make a more substantial tutorial thingy in the future, this literally took 10 minutes. :)
- Avoid repetition!
- Use a variety of line shapes: Convex, concave, and s-shapes.
- Big forms vs. small
- Add variation: tufts, wisps, etc.
WIP #2! Now time for bed. Don’t worry, I’ll fix the wonky face tomorrow. :)
A very teeny tiny WIP screenshot of something I’m working on right now. :D
