Socially Awkward and Forest Guys

Here is a socially awkward sea serpent. He loves to meet new people, but it rarely goes well for him. I think I want to do a comic thing with him. I love awkward things (I guess that makes me a narcissist as well?) No digital in this one! Straight up pen and marker. Everything in my sketchbook is colored in green, yellow and blue because those are the only markers I have.


And here is a forest guy I drew while I was watching TV the other day. I also want to do something with this guy. Mostly I think I was channeling my 12 year old self's love of any of those books where an explorer was studying some fantastical beasts and making tons of drawings and notes. I always wanted to make a book like that. Pen and grey markers, color in photoshop.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful sketches, Emily. I have been so free, to do some training on your colours and shapes and posted your blog right "next" to it.

Looking forward, to new inspiration,
