    Just a few things I've been working on.
    My scanner is horrible, so hence the bad scans/pictures

    First, I finished this.

    Then I did a memorial to Harry

    The original framed

    Photocopy scanned poorly...

    I am really considering going to art school after college so I can have some formal training. The idea just keeps appealing to me more and more.

    Sketch of Rose.

    One more...

    I am quite impressed! You certainly have a powerful style and carry it well through all of your work.

    Awesome!!! Your portraits are beautiful, and I love your animated-looking sketching style! Do you have a Deviantart account? If you don't, you should :D

    My deviant account is here- http://rabastan.deviantart.com/

    I haven't really updated it since right after Harry died, but I need to as soon as I can find a decent scanner. *sigh*

    There's a lot of erm... random stuff there too. My problem is mainly that I sketch all the time and rarely do anything big and in color. lol oh well...

    Oh, and both the first pics are watercolor. I tend to do most things just out of my head without references (which I knwo is bad) but the Harry one was off of a photo.

    Your quick sketches are better than anything I produce on a good day with lots of time! I love the sketch of the butterfly dog, too. can't wait to see it finished!

    Haha, that's kind of funny. I don't get that much traffic, but that Okami picture sure has gotten around. I stumbled onto it on a DA FanClub not too long ago. And I was like... whoa, that's my pic. Lol

    Yes, I'm easily amused.

    I went back looking for a thread with some of your fantasy art, Laurelin - was just in the mood to browse through it . . . went through your gallery on your link http://rabastan.deviantart.com/

    And now I'm bumping this thread ;)
