Amabie wishes everyone the best of luck!

You ain’t nuthin’ but a Beano dog!

Another of the pirate themed images off the sketch sites. It was originally done in “lavender” and “violet”, so variations in purple. Once converted to gray (as seen…

Beano bulbs go bust!

Colors from the “P-Files” in this week’s Beano. It’s a simple solution for implying low light, but quick, and effective. 

Non-life drawing in blue Hawaii

Non-life drawing is busting out all over
