Happy WIP Wednesday!
It's cool and rainy here, and the week has already been long and isn't over yet, so here are some soft, sweet Weilan chibis.
ID: Chibi Zhao Yunlan is taking a nap, leaning up against Shen Wei, head resting on the back of the other man’s head. Chibi Shen Wei is sitting and reading, a slight smile on his face; he’s reaching back to hold Zhao Yunlan’s hand as he sleeps.

3 goals for 2020, tagged by @boofblr!
1. CGC for Stellina! I feel like she’s naturally very close to so many of the requirements already, and with a little training work she could totally do it. I want to do babby’s first title!! And a sub-goal would be for me to stop phoning it in so much during training, I haaaaate training so I don’t think I am always allowing her to get the most out of our classes so I need to be better about sucking it up and allowing her to get the maximum benefit.
2. More adventures with Boone; obv the second half of this year got taken over by Stellina and Boone has been an absolute champ about taking the backseat and letting me focus my energy on her. But now that she’s somewhat growing out of the self-destructive-baby phase I want to make sure Boone is getting equal amounts of attention and solo time.
3.Non-pet-related goal: more art. I keep telling myself I’m going to draw more every year and not doing it... I really really miss art and having fun with my OCs and expressing myself. I feel like a big chunk of my identity revolves around being an artist and when I’m not productive it makes me fundamentally unhappy. Got to get back to it!!
idk who to tag soooooooooooo dogs in raincoats BAM

I was Tagged by @deadpoolica for #TopArtistTopCover to highlight a favorite artist & what I think their top cover is so far. I'm an old school soul...most of my favorites are no longer working. So I chose a current artist and this is the artist that brought me back to the art of collecting and his name? Esad Ribic. After seeing these covers I was amazed by the quality. Esad Ribic's painted covers belong in a museum vice comic book covers but I ain't mad 😬 Uncanny X-Force #1 Premiere Edition #wolverine #psylocke #fantomex #archangel #deadpool #xmen #xforce #variantcover #variant #cgc #cgccomics http://ift.tt/2jhAyZd
Happy Scale Saturday
Needing some family feels, so here is a Leverage watercolor landscape based on The Last Dam Job, featuring the OT3.
The figures are just a hair over 1 cm tall.

Happy Scale Saturday and Asexual Awareness Week!
Here is the first crossover piece that I did between Tamora Pierce's Tortall universe and The Untamed/MDZS. I can see Lan Sizhui and Keladry of Mindelan becoming good friends and visiting the bunnies while Kel's parents represent Tortall as diplomats and meet with Lan Qiren and Lan Xichen. Of course, I also wanted to include Princess Shinkokami.
I grew up on the Tortall books, and was thrilled when Kel was officially declared aspec in canon. Let her celebrate by petting bunnies with her friends.
These figures aren't as small as some others, but here are a few details at 45x magnification
ID: Three children playing with bunnies in the grass. On the right, Keladry of Mindelan in a blue robe sits with her legs stretched out, a bunny on her lap. In the middle, Lan Sizhui sits with a bunny on his knee. Princess Shinkokami is standing on the left and laughing at the two others behind her fan. Other bunnies frolic curiously around the children.

I can finally post the completed version of Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji in the bamboo forest! I was able to use the scanner at work yesterday; it’s amazing how much clearer the picture is when I’m not trying to take the photo with my cell phone at night...
Watercolor and gouache on 5x7″ watercolor paper. For scale, the figures are about 3 cm tall. If you’d like to see the layering process I go through, I have started making process gifs (thank you @ober-affen-geil for teaching me!! I am putting it all to use).

Here's my first time trying to paint the pillars in Dixing. Painting the chains and the glowing cracks in the pillars were very fun challenges
And of course I had to add tiny Weilan. Did the best I could to add the details to Heipaoshi's costume.
45x magnification images of Weilan and the chains! Building up layers of metallic gouache to create the chains turned out really quite well :)
ID: Watercolor landscape in shades of gray and blue with a dark, cloudy sky and shadows of mountains on the horizon. There are broken pillars and walls and arches throughout landscape. In the foreground is a single, tall pillar with cracks bleeding blue light and wrapped in chains. Shen Wei and Zhao Yunlan approach the pillar from the left of the page.

Second redraw/sketch for Leverage: Redemption!! Episode 2: The Panamanian Monkey Job. Loved seeing these two grift together!!
ID: Pencil drawing of of Sophie Devereaux in a black suit jacket and dark plastic glasses talking to someone off screen. Hardison, looking very concerned, stands just behind Sophie and leans away from the person they're speaking with.

Watercolor landscape that I did as part of an art exchange, featuring the juniors lounging around at the Cloud Recesses.
Watercolor and gouache on 5x7″ watercolor paper. For anyone keeping track of this landscape series, this piece ties for the most number of figures I’ve put into a landscape (4) so far. Each figure is about 0.8 cm tall.

Here's a piece that I did for the @priestnet Summer Solstice event on the theme of Opposites. I do adore these twins.
ID: Shen Wei and Ye Zun in the Dixing palace; Shen Wei is dressed in black robes with gold details and his hair is long and braided and Ye Zun is wearing white robes, his silver hair loose. They’re facing each other, both kneeling; Shen Wei with one knee up and wrist draped across it looks at Ye Zun sitting on his heels, hands in his lap.

Happy WIP Wednesday! Here was a watercolor landscape of the Pillars in Dixing that my brain didn't realize had so many architectural elements until I was already too far in to back out.
I relied very heavily on gouache for this particular piece and adding layer after layer, which was a fun challenge. Also figuring out the lighting in the cracks in Ye Zun's Pillar... ^_^
Shen Wei and Zhao Yunlan are about 1.3 cm tall.

Happy Scale Saturday! Here's the marriage that Lan Zhan didn't explain to Wei Wuxian during their visit to the Cold Pond Cave :D The fun part of this painting was how to create depth with only a few shades of blue and gray when ice is clear.
Close up of the husbands with their wrists tied with Lan Zhan's forehead ribbon. For scale, Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji are about 1.5 cm tall, the eraser is 6.2 x 2.2 x 1 cm, and the page is 5x7".
And Wei Wuxian at ~45x under a microscope.
ID: Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian standing side by side in the Cold Spring Cave at the Cloud Recesses facing Lan Yi’s guqin. They’re both holding their swords, and their wrists are loosely tied together with Lan Wangji’s forehead ribbon. The cave is in shades of blue and gray, with large icicles framing the walls; the water the couple stands in is misty.

Happy Scale Saturday!
The eraser received the most votes over the last week; I was even able to find a new, completely unused eraser which is 6.2 x 2.2 x 1 cm. So here we go :)
First up: my first watercolor landscape for the Untamed/MDZS fandom, Cloud Recesses with a miniature Lan Wangji (who is 1.2 cm tall here). My notebook pages are 5x7 inches.

Painting for @priestnet Summer Solstice Event week 3: Sun.
Watercolor and gouache on 5x7″ watercolor paper. Shen Wei and Zhao Yunlan are about 3 cm tall (giants!).
ID: Watercolor cityscape with two figures sitting on a bench. The cityscape shows an outdoor staircase rising from the lower left corner toward the upper center of the page, with flower baskets hanging on the wall behind, the railing, and sitting on some of the stairs. Just on the ground below the staircase in the center of the painting are two figures sitting on a bench, legs crossed and leaning back with their faces up toward the sun. Closest to the viewer is Shen Wei in a blue suit, next to him is Zhao Yunlan in a green jacket faded gray jeans. Some greenery can be seen past the arch on the far right side of the page.

This was my second watercolor landscape for the Untamed/MDZS fandom, back before I started measuring the figures and realizing the power of a size 0 round brush.
So here is Lotus Pier with a miniature Jiang Cheng (who is 1 cm tall) standing all by himself. My notebook pages are 5x7 inches. The eraser is 6.2 x 2.2 x 1 cm.

Here's a scale study for a Roswell: New Mexico watercolor landscape featuring Liz and Max.
Max is 2cm tall and Liz is... shorter, even in heels :)
And yeah, still loving my metallic gouaches which add depth and sparkle.
ID: Desert landscape with green mountains in the distance and some greenery. Max and Liz walk out of a gully with sand and rocks rising above them to either side with a few scraggly bushes. There are also a few purple and yellow desert blooms.

Happy Scale Saturday! This piece was inspired by A Bit of Ruthlessness by jirluvien. This was the first time I'd drawn anthropomorphized animals :) It was a fun challenge!
ID: A fox standing on hind legs dressed in Gusu Lan robes smiles down at a grumpy badger dressed in Yunmeng Jiang purple. The text reads:
"You don't fool me. You're a sly little fox, aren't you?"
"A fox? But what does that make you? A badger maybe... Resilient and grumpy. Very fitting."

For ace week in general: Alanna vs Kel thats my color
"Don't think that this means you can steal my color!"
Who else is absolutely thrilled that Kel is canonically aroace??? Alanna is actually supportive, she just doesn't want to lose the rights to the color purple ^_^
This is the second time Alanna has gone up against an aspec about wearing purple. The first one was Jiang Cheng.
ID: Alanna standing and leaning on a table to stare/glare at Kel who sits on the other side of the table trying not to appear visibly amused. (She's thankful for her Yamani training). The text behind Alanna reads: "Don't think that this means you can steal my color!"
