Thanks for the wonderful time. I did lots of sketches, met lots of people and it went by so fast.
As promised, I’ll have some of my Star Wars ‘How to Draw’ tutorials up soon, and a new Yoda one. Right now I’m finishing off the commissions that I took late on Sunday.
While I was going to randomly go to Ottawa Comicon next weekend to schmooze, I’ve got a responsibility here at home that is keeping me from road tripping. I’ll be at Wizardworld Chicago as a guest and perhaps a couple of other between now and then as a fan.
On the subject of commissions, the following pictures were commissioned and not picked up. If these belong to you, please get in touch with me! I think the commissioner was a volunteer, and these were for her nephews.
I promised a friend I would preface any entries with sloths by warning about impending sloths. There are sloths in here. If you love sloths, yay, if not, this is your warning. Sloths appear after the lazer kitten.
I will be at table X26. Come and find me! I will sign artbooks for free, kids get a free signed trading card (Everyone else pays a buck). Doodles starting at $5. Friday i will be running an Ewok mask class for kidlets, and Saturday is ‘You Can Draw Star Wars’ day. Check out the Calgary Expo site for times.
I have the laser kitten artbook piece as my poster. The first 15 people to bring me a copy to sign get a free laser-kitten button! Yay! Buttons!
Oh no, someone charged his lasers!
Did someone say BUTTONS? I have buttons for $2 each. And they’re awesome.
And Stickers! Die cut vinyl. $1.50 each*
And, finally, colouring books. Lovingly drawn and collated by yours truly. $5 each. Full of awesome. I only have 25 of these suckers, but I plan on doing another print run if they sell out. So don’t fret! My luggage was getting heavy.
Of course I will have my usual fare of prints as well. Stop by and say hello at least! I’d love to see you
This is kind of the big thing I’ve been working on for a while – something traditional, cute and with wings. behold, Dragon Ferrets!
I will have letter sized prints available for Calgary Comic Expo attendees to purchase, and the original is also for sale at the show. Also – I plan on doing 4×6 mini prints of each ferret.
While I have uploaded it elsewhere on the internets, I will have my Calgary Expo Artbook piece up here soon!
Also for sale at Calgary Expo (prices TBD): Mystical Critters Colouring Book, How Harold Got His Wings, my 2011 Sketchbook (no new book this year for Calgary, the 2011 one will be discounted!). Plus prints! Sketches! You-As-A-Pony and/or Your Fave Pokemon cheap doodles! Vinyl stickers! Magnets! BUTTONS! and original art. I’ll be signing artbooks from the past or present, as well.
Also, this year my display is guaranteed to not fall down. I have the power of awesomeness (And pre-building the display) at my disposal this time.
As we get closer to the con, more art will be posted. Like dragons. And Hydras. And Laser kittens. And sloths!
That secret set I have been alluding to for a while has been announced, but I have to tease you all a little with the details before I am allowed to post my cards. I am a sketch card artist on the DC Comics Batman: The Legend card set. As soon as I can, I will post some cards. I feel humbled in the presence of many of the artists on that list and I hope to do more superhero stuff in the future.
I finished this fabulous return card for Star Wars Galactic Files fan James.
If you are interested in a custom return, I am asking $125 per card. No more than two characters. Unless it’s Ewoks or Jawas. I will draw as many of those on a card as I can fit.
I also drew this Rockin’ Dragon on cardboard who is looking for a home:
I have also added some more art you can get to by perusing my gallery, but they will have a special post of their own later.
I have been working on commissions and tooling around in between them to get my juices going. If you’re super curious about what little scribbles I’m doing, I’ve been uploading them to the Pencils and Sketches part of my site. The quick little digital doodles are part of a project my pal Neogeen is working on and a bunch of artists are testing. I’m enjoying myself. (Seriously, check out her art, it is the bees knees)
Here are a couple of other digital pieces. The bear is a commission and the fox is a little pencil sketch I dolled up for fun.
Hopefully there will be more cute coming your way. I will be open for larger commissions in June – digital and real media – so give me a holler if you’re interested.
It’s nice to be finally getting the feel for the digital media again. Photoshop and I have not been friends for a while. FYI, the bear badge was done in SAI and the fox was coloured in photoshop.
I sold out at the con, and I have more printed now.
The prints are $5 each plus shipping – $2 Canada, $3 US and $5 International.
I am also taking You-As-A-Pony commissions!
Here’s the deal, any more details than this are more cash!
$15 each, watercolour, around 4×6 in 5×7 paper. (PLUS SHIPPING) All prices are in Canadian
What you get:
ONE body colour
ONE colour for mane and tail
Relatively uncomplex cutie mark
Your choice of unicorn, pegasus or earth pony.
If you want the mane or tail drawn in a certain way (Straight, curly, long, short) I will do my best.
Let me know if you want a brony, I will draw him with a squarer face and/or without eye lashes.
The pose is up to me. There are no backgrounds.
Addons: Choose your own pose: $5 Complex body colouring (IE multiple colours) – $10 (Like if you wanted something like the X ponies) Prop (like a hat, small furry animal, simple costume element, weapon) – $5 Multiple mane colours (Like, a stripe of a different colour) – $2 Unicorn horn and wings: $2 A second character (Like you riding yourself as a pony, or another basic pony in the same picture) – $10 Background – Varies. This can push the pony into full commission land as far as pricing.
Please comment or send an email to amy at flyingarmadillo dot com and I will ponify you!
I DO have an example of a watercolour pony, but I can’t show it yet as it is a gift. However, watercolour ponies are awesome and not streaky like the marker ones. Note that I cannot guarantee exact colour matching with watercolours.
Below are some I did in Calgary, your ponies for the post con price are guaranteed to be streak free
CCEE has posted their program book, which has a little picture of my artbook contribution in it, so I figure it’s officially safe to show it off. Please, if you’re going to CCEE, pick up one of the artbooks! Proceeds this year go to Make a Wish. Bring it to my table and I’ll sign it, and people who come by with an artbook will get a free postcard or trading card. I am at P09 in the writer/artist guest area, not in the Artist Alley, so come and find me!
The artbook piece is adobe photoshop and to accompany the original, I am very likely going to get a poster printed for the auction.
