Ariana in Space by MommySpike
Ariana in Space
This is for the April Drawing: Outer Space Sci-Fi Challenge!

Once upon a time, when I was involved with The Gargoyles Saga, we had a Time Dancer story where the Phoenix Gate took Brooklyn to a space station. In one of unwritten future stories for Ariana, Brooklyn's daughter, the Earth had banded together to defend against the Space Spawn and some gargoyles volunteered to go into space. Ariana was one of the few that qualified and became the wingleader of the gargoyles squad. I don't think I'll ever get around to writing that particular story but I did enjoy doing this illo in Photoshop -- I think all the painting has done me some good!

April Drawing: Set the Scene

The rest of Benedict and Beatrice's biting banter followed as easily as it had the previous evening at the beach. As long as he kept his eyes on her face, Kirin could cope with all the rest. When Ariana went off stage with the others, Kirin managed his lines with Graham and Prongs well enough. It wasn't until they got up to the costume party scene and the players were all mingling, that Kirin's temper began to heat up again.

Mawson, the Antarctica gargoyle playing the villain Don John, sidled over to Ariana and said in a low teasing voice, “Your outfit reminds me of the night we went to that place in Manhattan. It was in an old building and there was live music playing. Where was that again?”

“Oh, yeah... the Rockaway.” Ariana giggled and swatted him with her script. “I'm surprised you can remember it at all. Frank still talks about how many drinks you put away.”

“Well worth it, I say.” Mawson chuckled and grinned as he flicked his eyes over her as Ariana began to walk away as Beatrix cued the party goers to change positions.

It was all Kirin could do not to bare his teeth and growl. Mawson was wasting no time in making his interest known, unlike Happa's failed attempt. It didn't help that Ariana seemed to enjoy flouncing around in her sparkling halter and low slung pants. Even the way she carried herself was different; she walked with a hip-rolling sultry strut instead of her usual tomboyish gait. It reminded him too much of another female and another time.

Boo-boo Doll by MommySpike
Boo-boo Doll
For the April 12 challenge, we had to turn a character into a plushie. *L* As it so happens, Usagi's favorite napping companion is her own personal Boo-Boo doll.

(Her grandfather Brooklyn just rolls his eyes and growls under his breath when Broadway and Lex tease him about this.)

Spike in 2015
It's April Drawing time again and today's challenge was draw your first fandom character. Since my first on-line fandom was Gargoyles, that means Spike.

Y'know, when you haven't drawn them in a while, gargoyle feet are a right pain to draw!

Cheetah Love by MommySpike
Cheetah Love
For this week's Animal Portrait class, my student picked this picture out of my animal folder. I had originally printed out for a Kid's Class on Valentine's Day. *L* It was just as well I didn't use it because all those SPOTS were hard to do!! It made a more challenging Intermediate lesson.

Yes, I know... I haven't posted in forever. I was just waiting for something interesting to say.

*ahem*

I have been discovered!

As many of you know, I teach an acrylic painting class at Michael's Arts & Crafts. One of my paintings was on display on the framing counter where the assistant manager of the Flying Horse Cafe saw it and asked if how she could contact me. It turns out that she books artists to display their work in the cafe for a month at a time. I get to be the featured artist for August and I'll be having my gallery opening on Saturday, August 9th from 9am to 12 noon.
