Supergirl! New Original Art Commission!

Here's yet another fun recent fan commission! It's Supergirl! I wanted to create a powerful flowing pose, but with a slight "manga" flavor...Click images below to enlarge!

Roy and Brenda! Two Fun Watercolor Caricatures!

Here are two recent watercolor portrait/caricatures I did just for fun! I had already been commissioned by these friends to create two color images of them (with their beloved dog), and used a technique involving hand-drawing mixed with computer color. They were very happy with the results, but I wanted to re-focus on the caricatures, this time using only hand-drawn techniques! Click to enlarge each step below!
