50: Summer Collaborations

Color-wizard Extraordinaire Tardigrad and I spent quite a chunk of the summer doodling amongst ourselves, resulting in a few proper collaborations and loads of sketches.  My next post should be up-to-date school stuff.  I've just finished my first week of senior year, after all!

 We'll begin with her linework, which I transferred, inked, and colored with a mixed media medley.  I was finally able to get a pink 'underpainting' to work the way I wanted, so this was a joy to work on.

 This one was a commission and I created the lines for Tardigrad with carcoal pencil on tracing paper.  Our commissioner specified something similar to Kransekake in the background, and I have never enjoyed looking up reference quite so much.

 More lines I created for T!  These guys are based on the medieval "Cameleopard"- the early European perception of giraffes.

 Not a collab, just two of our characters scheming, with hers doing most of the scheming.

And finally, here's a quick link to a couple pieces she drew for me, completely out of the blue.  All of them are jaw-droppingly amazing, so you'd best be checking them out.
