Peacoctopus by Meg Lyman

8×10″ gouache on board

This was a super fun commission, although the finished version had a kitchen background and added an apron onto the critter, as well as those feather dealies sticking out of the head. I truly enjoyed the challenge of the feathers. Their shape is soothing to paint!

I Regret Nothing

11×14″ gouache on board


This was a super fun commission and I have no regrets. Using gouache on flat areas of color, the way it was designed to be used, is both satisfying and frustrating. You had better mix enough of that color to get coverage and not have too much water mixed in, or you’re screwed.

Also, painting tiny outlines is oddly theraputic.

Con Doodles

Jet City Comic Show was fun. I saw lots of Captain Americas, which always makes me unreasonably happy. And I got to meet the local, effervescent, awesome Tiki Stitch who I’ve known online for years. Yay internet people!

Anyway, here are some sketch commissions and doodles from the con. Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
