Blot Rot Rust

Some more sketches in my "Tarnished" series. These first three will become separate paintings of the same size. (I'm thinking 9"x12")

This one shows a little creature trapped on a rotting island with it's pet frogs dying around it and being eaten by the pitcher plants below. Dark, but cute too, right?

I don't want the creature to be any particular animal, more like all woodland creatures rolled into one little monster. I think I need to make it look weirder. Maybe add spines? Stripes? Tusks? I dunno.

In this one, a classy gentlerabbit serenely blots at a suspicious stain on his cuff. Perhaps some shit went down with that axe? Scandal!

This sketch shows a masked girl running with/from a fleet of flying robot-animal-monster-things. (yet to be drawn) I can't decide whether to have them tormenting her by sticking rusty nails in her, or trying to help her by pulling them out. I'm thinking the latter would be a little more pleasant. On a random note, I really like how I drew her front foot. I have a lot of trouble with feet sometimes...

This was just a random drawing of a dapper circus man, which eventually morphed into the idea for the sinister rabbit above.

I wanted to do a painting of a bunch of broken dolls playing with woodland creatures... I still might but I probably won't use this sketch. I think it's bound for the bookshelf of abandoned ideas. Terrible feet.

Well that's what I did today. If you haven't friended my new professional account on facebook/added my fan page, do so. I think the next raffle will only be open to people who are both my "friends" and "fans". Coercion! (Details below the "about me" section on the right in red.)
