Playful Pony

Yay! Process today. I did this little sketch of a pony last night and  I wanted to expand on it and make a cute little scene.  The pink one is the final image, but I wanted to show the palomino option just to give you guys an idea of another color option I had in mind. Also, the font is different. 
Anyway, enjoy!

Sea Lions and Seals

I went to Sea World a little while ago and I did these gestures while I was watching the sea lions and seals. The sea lions are pretty much the best animals at Sea World. Sure Shamu's awesome and the dolphins are amazing but these guys are just downright entertaining.  It's like watching a bunch of college guys; they're just sitting around, making lots of noise and looking for food.  And they're really fun to draw.

This is a straight scan from my sketchbook.

Gorilla My Dreams...

Howdy howdy howdy! I started this lil' guy off as a sketch at Animal kingdom a few months ago. It was just a little doodle, and honestly I forgot about it until I was looking through my sketchbook this week and saw it again. I liked it and thought it deserved more attention. So here he is.
His name is Clive, and he's a young male silverback gorilla. He enjoys lounging around in his hammock, eating bananas, and occasionally swinging around on vines through his jungle home. He's quite the thoughtful gorilla, more prone to daydreaming than pounding on his chest and acting all macho.

Tomorrowland Sketch

I went to the Magic Kingdom yesterday with every intention to spend a nice, relaxing afternoon drawing and just hanging out. Maybe grabbing an ice cream or a milkshake, just kicking back, not really doing any rides just a nice time drawing. Two things went wrong: 1) it was like 105 degrees yesterday, or at least it felt like it, and 2) Being June, school's out and the summer crowds are starting to trickle in.  So I spent maybe a half hour there instead of a whole afternoon. But I did get a nice sketch out of it though. I did this from the Plaza Restaurant outside eating area (right under Tinker Bell's flight path during Wishes) looking out toward the Tomorrowland entranceway. I've always liked Tomorrowland's entrance. I  like all the rocks, it makes it feel more Jules Verne-ish. 

But anyway, that's all I got for you in this post. I know it's not much but I hopes you like it. :)

Ocean Dwellers Post 3

And the last three. These are probably my least favorite of all thirteen. Although the otter's not bad.

Here are some more lil' sea critters! The squid's my favorite out of these five... but the seal and orca are cute too. :)

Ocean Dwellers Post 1

Hello, hello!  This past month was kinda busy with work, so I've been trying to squeeze working on these for a while now. I finally just wanted to get them done and move on to something else so I took some time today to just finish them. 

Last time I went to Sea World, I started sketching some cute sea animals, and I thought it would be a good idea for a new line of cute icons and characters. So I scanned 'em, gave them the Illustrator treatment and voila'!  An assault of new art. 

I hope you like. The sharks are my personal favorites. I'm splitting them up into a few different posts to make them a little more manageable to view.
