Finished owl queen

Okay, I feel a lot better about the finished piece.  It gives a sense of space and time.  So a little environment goes a long way!  I also fixed the drapery of the blanket.  That was a relief!
Edited post: I revised it even further based on crits from the Oatley Academy class.  Thanks OA-ers!!

Okay here's another one.  I'm really trying to reinvent myself.  I already see a few tweaks I think I'll make, but I'm determined to walk away from it for a few days and not look at it.  It's a new discipline I'm working on...

Another character design.  I'm really trying to step outside my comfort zone and experiment with monsters.  I'm taking it slow though.  I'm starting with an animal and giving it a few monster elements.  So I'm taking baby steps, but important baby steps.

Princess in development...

This one is a wall sticker I worked up for a friend.  I'm going to try to make it customizable, but the best part is that when you get it in the mail, all you have to do is peel the backing off and slap it up onto the wall.  I really liked working in a more delicate style.  I do a lot of graphic stuff, and I love it, but I find I really need the variety to keep me inspired.  I think versatility of style is underrated.  It's great to have a signature style, but you miss out on a lot of great opportunities if you limit yourself to only one style.  The pendulum swings the other way too.  If you have too much of a mash of different styles, especially in a portfolio, it can be confusing what your strengths are.
