10/31/08: Polar Bear Princess

I'm pretty obsessed with this polar beat hat thing I designed, but also embarrassed by it cause it's so ridiculous.

10/28/08: Then and Now Meme

There's this thing going around where you draw yourself in high school and then in college.
I thought my journey through adolescence and young-adulthood was interesting enough to warrant four steps.

So, here you go: Kori in Middle School, High School ,College, and Now.
Oh how far we've come.



10/27/08: Mouse Kitty


My boyfriend's cat Mouse-kitty, saw ehr in the barn this weekend and this is pretty much what she looks like. She is oooooooold and crazy.

10/26/08: This only half happened.


If "replicarter" is not part of your geek vocabulary, just know that it is very geeky, then this comic is hilarious. Not really, just anecdotal.

10/25/08: Adventurer Character Sketch


Character design for the comic. Self-portrait as an explorer.

10/24/08: Long Necked Gryphon

Long necked Gryphon. I like the flying sketch.

10/23/08: Examining the Baby Dragon

Remember the dragon I drew here?
Well, on my comic/journal/whatever adventure, I encountered a baby. And it bleated at me and I checked out its teeth.

10/17/08: Watercolor Figure

A little funny on the face, and I'd lighten up her hair if I had the chance. But just a little figure I sketched up.

10/16/08: Plum Colored Profile


Just sketched a little something with watercolors. This is hard.

10/15/08: Bird Head-Dress


Not much to say about this one. Might be sketching with paint from now on, for a while. Stay tuned.

10/14/08: Caela and Sophie

I'm concerned because my narrative characters seem to be looking all...the same.
As if they're just the same faces with different hair and accessories attached. =(
Its like I have to loosen some nuts in order to get back into the groove.

This is Caela and Sophie... they're majika... or, wizards, just I'm making up my own terms.

10/13/08: Test Heads

I was gonna do some hard core practicing water coloring heads... which was great in theory but them I inked them all onto the wrong side of the watercolor paper (hello cheapo paper) and after head six I realized why the water coloring was so difficult. Oh well, here's to tomorrow.

10/12/08: Dancer

Looking at Erté inspired the bands across the torso. =)

10/11/08: Bad News


Yeah so, anatomy is overrated anyway, right? Just trying to keep on schedule. I'll draw more design and less narrative soon.

10/10/08: Magika Poster: Four Stages

My process, for fun. Ms. Curl makes an appearance in the background.

10/09/08: Angry Curl

I promise there will be someone new on the blog tomorrow. I just got really excited about this character and her hairstyle.

10/08/08: Cloak and Sword 2

...she's a soldier with a good heart and good morals, risen to the top of the imperial army. Our heroes, now outlaws for the wrong reasons, face her down in the finale. She is wearing the cloak with the crests that denote her high ranking- the highest post. Can our heroes make her see the error of her blind faith in her monarch, or is it too late?

10/07/08: Cloak and Sword

She's gonna kick some butt.

10/06/08: Button Pearls

I think she looks a little scary, but I do love her gloves.

Painted here.

10/04/08: Hairpin 2


Just a hairpin...and a bit of an angle.

10/03/08: Horns and Jacket


I've been looking at all kinds of horns lately. Decided to draw a fella. Also, clothes. How about that.

10/02/08: Pendant (Masking and Pull Test)

I decided to bite it and go ahead to buy some masking fluid. So I made this picture based on, mainly, the collar effect I got... then masked the figure to paint a background. I pulled paint up with a tissue to get a texture... here's the work-in-progress:



Final version here. Not spectacular, as it was just a test, but pretty fun.

10/01/08: Jewelry Monster

Inspired by a book about pearls. I was hoping to work horizontally on this one, but I ended up making a vertical piece anyway. Oh well. She's a monster who preys on young men. They fall in love with her and give her jewelry, then she eats them and adorns herself in their gifts as prizes of conquest. Spooky!
