Can I ask if these are based off of something, or if you drew/own these characters-because I want to draw like this!!

Hi and thanks! The designs and characters are original, but inspired by many 90's styles and artists like Glen Keane, Tom Bancroft, etc. I'm currently making a graphic novel with these characters at http://cashmeresky.com I hope to have many pages launched for the public to read by early next year. :D

In the meantime, here's an Archer Portrait sketch I did. :D

All these portraits and no humans. Ok, here's an Audrey Hepburn reference study I did.

Hey I have to say I like your artstyle very much! You just got a subscriber ;)

Haha thanks. You caught me at a weird time doing people studies. I've been doing cartoon cats for years at this point. lol

Here's my attempt at a Scarlett Johansson study. It's not perfect by any means, but I had to try. :P

How long does it take for you to color these in? I've drawn a lot growing up, but then I stopped after a long time and I'd like to get back into doing so, especially since I bought a drawing tablet. I don't color things, though, and on the computer, it's different.

I promise I'm still alive. Haven't posted here in awhile cause I've been cranking on the graphic novel for months. I'm about to finish up the first 20 pages, but am not releasing until I have around 40. Hopefully it'll officially start around end of February 2017. Anyway, here's some sketches and a sneak preview of the graphic novel (text removed).

Since I'm drawing these characters more in the upcoming pages of my graphic novel, I took another crack at them. This is Theo and Nelly. They're also based on my real pet cats.

I lost my cat Helix over the holiday season due to a tragic disease. He died in my arms on Christmas Eve. This was surprisingly more emotionally difficult to do than technically. Helix will live on as Theo in my graphic novel. I will miss him.

Note: Helix always loved popcorn.

Well, clumsy me accidentally deleted the thread I made from over 2 years ago, well over 11,000 views (thanks guys). I was trying to edit a post and I couldn't delete something, and the "thread delete' button was very close to the editing window...sort of non-descript. I'd at least expect it to ask for confirmation of what I was about to do. Anyway, David Lloyd was kind enough to provide me with the HTML backups of everything over that two years so the pages are below. He said he MIGHT be able to somehow restore the specific thread but no promises. In the meantime, I'll pick up from where I last left off. I really messed up huh? :P

All that you have created in drawings are all amazing! How I wish, I could learn to be creative as you are. Sketches are good! I find the colors nice as it gives your sketch a background. You have some super nice shading too!

Did a quick speed paint of Enzo after a night working on the comic. Couple hours I think. I call this "Nervous Wave"
