I wanna be a cowboy... by YumeSprite
I wanna be a cowboy...
My first dream in life, when I was still learning to tie my shoes, was to be a cowboy. Not a cowgirl, as my sister told me was the correct thing to say, but a cowboy. I argued that even the girls were called cowboy and stuck to my guns on that. But I never got a cowboy hat, and I moved away from Montana, so I gave up on that dream. But that's OK. I was inspired in 4th grade to become a teacher. And because people kept telling me that I should be an artist, I eventually became both.

I totally missed tracing her elbow with pen, but oh well. It's a sketch. :)


Follow me on twitter! I post more sketches there! :D
Ashes - New Sketch by YumeSprite
Ashes - New Sketch
Thinking about my unfinished colored pencil drawing from 10 years ago, I decided to sketch the girl again from memory while practicing sad/painful expressions in my sketchbook. Then I went and found the old file on my computer and compared. It was fun. You can see that unfinished piece in my scraps here:…
Freeze Frame Sketch - Legend of Korra by YumeSprite
Freeze Frame Sketch - Legend of Korra
A very fun way to practice drawing! Watch one of your favorite shows (animated) and pause randomly. Draw exactly what you see. I wanted to draw action today, so I waited for an action scene while watching season 3 of The Legend of Korra. I paused and drew the drawing on the left. I pushed play, then pause *immediately* and drew the image on the right. It was especially good practice this time around for shoulders, back, and arms. You should try!

The Fully Illustrated N. Drake Dictionary
<click to zoom into details!>

This is the design I made for the Uncharted + We Love Fine T-shirt contest. It was too much fun! So much, in fact, that I had to cut out tons of entries. I do still plan on releasing the remaining dictionary entries as time goes on, but you're more likely to see those get added at my Behance gallery.

If you want to see this on a T-shirt, then please go to We Love Fine through this link and give it 5 stars! Voting is open until 8/11. If you aren't a member, you can easily sign up for free - no nagging emails if you don't want them, and lots of cool pop-art shirts to see. If you really like it, please let others know by sharing! ❤❤❤


Follow me on Twitter! I post lots of WIPs there (and little life tidbits, but not so many) that I don't post anywhere else!

Next week is the deadline for the We Love Fine + Naughty Dog's Uncharted T-shirt design contest! I'll submit my old one again, but I need to work on this every morning until then to finish! Guns, explosions, dramatic angles...especially guns are so challenging! Arg! But it's too much fun! :D

I use DA for posting all pieces I create, from sketchy and conceptual to as polished as can be.

You may make a request if you'd like. :) I'm a little busy working on some new deadlines, but I'm sure I could draw something you'd like in my spare time. If you send me a note, we can probably work something out.

Oh, I'd love to - and totally felt like it when I was done - but if I did I'd rather try do do it in a more unique style. I also have other projects I'm working on, so basically the answer is no. :/ I did this one specifically as an exchange with my younger sister. never know. :)
