Too depressed and full of chocolate to add much text. Hope it was a Merry Christmas for other people who did not do worse than they thought they had in their college course. Oh, wait that was me who did worse than they thought in their college course even though I pulled off A's for all my exams...

Strawberry Shortcake does not belong to me and is owned by American Greeting Corps (right?) but she sure was fun to draw. You just don't see art like this anymore; it's all anime now. This is the original Strawberry Shortcake. Not the sad attempt to recreate the 80's.

Did I mention Monday nights are update nights? Yes, i decided every monday i post a new picture. that way i have to draw something and since this semester is coming to a close i'll have more time to draw.
Don't have a title for this picture but it IS rather creepy isn't it? i like it. especially her eyes because they kind of pop out at you. i can't wait to do the inking with color and put some more contrast in it. No, it isn't finished because i have a chandelier for lighting in the background but it isn't inked in yet and the scanner didn't pick up the pencil very well. So it's not some blob in the background, yes it has purpose! I may have to mess around with the inking on this a bit more. I was thinking more heavy lines to promote more eeriness to the picture.

Black and White proudly presents: Lionfish. No color, haha. I love fish. When I was a kid I had a thirty gallon tank full of freshwater tropical fish that I loved. (even though I sucked at keeping them alive being I didn't know much about fish back then and now I feel really guilty. One of my Tiger Barbs took a flying leap for freedom one time while I was cleaning the tank and I didn't discover the poor thing until I stepped on the remains on my carpet but now, many years later I have read BOOKS on keeping fish and am glad to say something like that won't happen again. That and draining the tank and taking out all the fish every few weeks is a bad thing to do.)

Isn't it funny how the coral looks like a brain? I love aquariums; this particular fish was at the Birch's Aquarium at Scripps in San Diego. That was a great place and I took lots of pictures. It kinda looks like his back end is missing but actually that's just because of perspective; the picture I drew this from had the fish in mid swing so his behind is well, behind him. It was hard getting a decent picture; they are very active fish. Also poisonus.
