This pudgy little thing doesn’t have a name yet, Jen is trying to help me pick one.
But Lordy, do I love his stupid chunky little hands <3 also, just his overall pudgy-ness.

First three in what I hope will be an ongoing series.
Oakeshott was the second completed. She was made for Boarfeathers, who designed her colors (with a few tweaks here and there from me) and is named for the Oakeshott sword series (the one she’s using is similar to the Type XIV). She stands about 3 inches tall, and just about as wide in this stance, and was about a ten hour project.
Fleck was the first mouse I did. He was an 8 hour project with a great deal of trial and error, and made a great test and learning experience. He stands about two inches tall. I had intended his color to be chocolate/tan merle (honestly, i didn’t know mice came in as many colors as they do :|) but the dappling in his white spots became to messy, so I settled for a piebald instead.
Red is the newest, and the quickest to finish at just about five hours (I think i’m getting the hang of this :| I also need a life). She stands a little over two inches tell, and is chubby as hell. Her design is based directly off of a drawing I did of a mouse some two years ago that has spiraled from a single drawing to selling mouse badges at a convention, to finally making sculptures of them. She is also the only one so far that hasn’t lost a tail directly after baking.

I’m making mice…little sculpy mice in a multitude of poses occasionally bearing props.
These are the first two. The sword mouse is not finished yet.
That is all.
Finished this DAYS ago, but its so big, it hasn’t fit on any of the scanners, and I had to do it in three pieces
Jen and I have been a part of a medieval combat guild for a few years now, and as the anniversary tournament of said guild approaches, we were both made aware that it is also one of the captain/founder’s birthdays. I decided last minute to do a picture for him of his persona, Ser Maelgrim Crowther. I pretty much have 100% confidence that he and the guys won’t find this before said anniversary, I haven’t gone flaunting web addresses and usernames around them. Only one of them knows I even have a facebook page.
This is just the rough drawing, and actually, while I did THIS in photoshop, I’m planning on painting it physically, with watercolors. But, as I lack any confidence in my people drawing skills, I needed the multiple layers and easy undo options of photoshop to get it down first :| Now a bit of paper and the light table, and I should have it ready to paint.
I’m actually really excited to see how this turns out, cause it came together WAY better than the initial pencil sketch had me thinking it would :| I am veeeery happy.
And I should have been in bed three hours ago.
I honestly have no idea what he might be regretting, but he’s a sellsword, maybe he regrets who he gave his employ to for this last battle. I have no idea, i’m terrible at titles.

This is How We Fly
So, apparently three years ago (I swear it was more recent) I did this painting for my brother for Christmas: http://redvarg.deviantart.com/art/Out-of-the-Storm-186498072
And at the time, my mum was dating this fellow who turned out to be more drama than it was worth, and in the process of moving her back in to our old house, and my brother moving from his dorm to a house with his college buddies, it seems to have been misplaced, and he was pretty bummed about it.
So I made him a new one for THIS Christmas (cause I’m broke as dirt and couldn’t get him anything else :| )
I like this one much better :|
Watercolor and white gel pen on Bristol, 5 x 17 inches
This took about a week to finish, with the limited time I have at the moment….though, to hear Jen tell it…”It’s the painting that took you two years to finish! D8”
Ah, yes, New Years, we’re so clever, we are. *shot*

No one told him that those things are just shiny, not overly valuable. >.>
This one isn’t as finished as all the others cause my brother went to bed early and he sleeps in the room with the tablet in it :| But at least I have something to work with when I finish them all tomorrow.
There is one piece left to this monstrosity >.> Even if there’s only twelve days in the song. XD
Merry Christmas Eve or Christmas Day ooor whatever it is you’re on now where ever the lot of you live. And Happy Holidays and all that jazz.

I will get all of these colored eventually, I’m just about 120% out of time to work on them right now >.< WOULD help if i hadn’t gotten home at midnight tonight…Retail Holiday hours really bite :/
Kili’s stocking is so much bigger because he had Fili’s, but then he made Ori make him a bigger one.
I mean, c’mon…bigger stocking = more loot. That’s Calvin’s Logic. :|
Also, don’t forget, Bombur’s Making Cookies
Meanwhile, Dwalin is dressed as Santa! (also unamused…)

Minor break in the christmas dwarves for this. One of my mum’s co-workers asked if I could do a piece for their boyfriend for christmas. I let it run SUPER late, which can be blamed entirely on work, but I’ll pass it off to her today, and then she’ll have time to get it framed and wrapped for christmas eve. -.- I’m a terrible person for leaving it so late.
Anyways, she didn’t give me much to go on, just that he loves wolves, so something with a howling wolf and a full moon….I bit my tongue on any cliches and said I’d pull something up for her :|
Watercolor and white Acrylic on Bristol smooth, 8.5 x 10 inches, bout…I don’t know, three hours of work?
