Mystery Sketches

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

During the latter half of October, I offered incentive sketches on my webshop – a free sketch with every shop order. There was some demand from people to purchase the sketches outright, so I introduced the Mystery Sketch option, which is still active. As you can see, as time went on, the sketches became more elaborate! After the first few, I upgraded the paper to a heavier cardstock in off-white with rounded edges. I introduced darker shadows and half-tone marker shading. Overall, I’m quite pleased with the result and plan to have the October sketches as part of my annual calendar. I’ve collected the sketches done to date in this slide show above, though one or two may have slipped the net! I’ve already heard of a couple that are going to become tattoos! Sketches are still available, but since the sale is over, you now have to pay to get one. 😉

I hope you enjoy checking them out.

Ashley Richbow was kind enough to send me a photograph of her new tattoo based on my Sea Nymph drawing. The tattoo was done by Bernard Dunn from Classic Tattoo in Las Vegas, NV. The artist did a great job of interpreting the piece and I especially like the placement and the way the curve of the tentacle wraps. Beautiful job!
