Gardening always slows down when I cut myself accidentally with a sharp blade. LOL When that happens, it keeps me reliably inside to work on art. Luckily, I hold my blade in the right hand (my drawing hand), so I always cut something on my left hand. The nasty slice with a garden sickle is looking better, although I've nicknamed my left index finger "Frankenfinger" since (... looking a bit cut up and discolored ^^; )
Been working on a few sprites while my finger is healing. I'm working toward the 50th sprite. Can you believe it? Although I have a few that's going to be pushed back for a release (probably sometime next month), with the Ellen Million Graphics joint/collaboration coloring books' deadlines extended by two months, I can concentrate on working on some new releases. I've started working on a new collection as well as continuing to expand the popular Sprite series. I am even working on a very special sprite that's a little creepy, and definitely unique. :D
Above is a partial preview of one of the new babies coming soon. It's a flower that had been requested, but I initially didn't have an idea as to how I'd approach. Lately, all these flowers that have been on my list for a long time due to my inability to come up with a character design have started to come off the list one by one. I'm really happy about that. I'm feeling a wonderful 'flow' when I sit down to doodle. Lately, the first doodle becomes the basis for inking whenever I set out to design a sprite, and that's awesome.
The new series to be launched in mid-July (hopefully) is also a simpler, whimsical approach like my Sprites. I'm having a lot of fun with these guys. But I'm going to keep them under the wrap for a little longer as I work to accumulate a reasonable number of images in the collection for a big launch. :D I'm usually pretty haphazard when it comes to digi releases - making a listing whenever I get done drawing and processing - but I'm going to do something a little different to make it more fun for the fans and my DT ladies, hopefully. :D Ahh, projects! *fun fun*
