La Dolce Vita

Stacy Walker was great as usual for our Fellini theme, all the right accessories and attitude. The Nino Rota soundtrack was really inspiring as well. We were transported to a film set in 1960s Italy. Ciao!

Apocalypse Warrior

Stacy Walker was our intrepid Apocalypse Warrior a few months back, she came with an amazing assortment of weapons and costume bits to save the world. Thanks Stacy! Who knew the end would come courtesy of giant flying electrically-charged jellyfish? Apparently she did, she looks supremely confident. Workshop sketch and full color rendering done later.

Very Fashionable

Daniella Traub was our fab fashion model last night in a 30s / 40s costume. Always very elegant and can hold those poses forever. Thanks Daniella!

Shiver Me Timbers!

Stacy Walker was fantastic last week as the Pirate Queen, great costume with lots of detail-y bits to draw. Here are a couple that I spent some extra clean up time later since there was too much to fit into a 20 to 30 minute sketch. Thanks Stacy!

Mrs. Peel, We're Needed!

We had a great 2 model set up last night with John and Rosie as Steed and Emma Peel, the original 60's Avengers. We ran the poses longer so we weren't overwhelmed by trying to get in all the information from 2 models. Lots of Petula Clark music for inspiration! Thanks John and Rosie for your hard work!

The Woodland Fairy

Here's another one from workshop sketch to finished art. Sara Streeter as a woodland fairy. Okay, I admit this one got a bit corny, but the pose seemed to suggest that approach. Hope fairies are immune to deer ticks! Thanks Sara!

Poor Little Fishy!

Marissa Gomez posed for us a month or 2 ago in a great sailor girl costume. One of the drawings I did inspired me to try a more finished calendar piece ala Gil Elvgren, the king of pin up. It needed a gag, so I added the little fish and the hungry seagulls. Anyway, I think it worked pretty well. Thank Marissa!

Derby Doll

We had the great Stacy Walker doing a kick ass job as a roller derby gal Wednesday night. I think she could go pro! I thought I'd post the sketch and a paint over I did later. Thanks Stacy!

Cowpokes, Hippies and More

Here are a few from the last month or so, Jonathan as a cattle driver, Taryn as a 60s love child, Larva as a middle eastern dancer and Debra sunning on the beach. Thanks to all, they work hard to bring us some great characters to draw.
