Ursa Chibi

Teru Teru Kumo makes all the things I love! – moi

This little guy was inspired by artwork created by Teru Teru Kumo. Their work is so adorable and I wanted to attempt their style. I was truly inspire by their set of Chibi Care Bears.

 

I’ve always wanted to remake Ursa Pete. I just didn’t feel it was as cute as my drawing. This little guy isn’t like my drawing, but more inspired by Teru Teru Kumo’s Chibi Care Bears.

I believe their pieces are more charms and I’m not sure if they stand up. This piece I created I wanted to make sure stood up and was hard to balance with his ginormous head!

The light purple clay I was working with was really soft and frustrating to shape. There is a lot more movement in the clay that I typically don’t like there, but was hard to get the solid form with the soft clay.

I would do a few things differently next time. First I need to stop using such soft annoying clay! The star also needs more glitter. I may make another version of this guy tomorrow. We’ll see!

P.S. this guy is way cuter in person than how he is photographed.

Goodnight!

Feld

Pike one please: Black Hawks or Transformers?? – moi

This is a special piece for my friend Jason Feld. I promised I would make him something, and today I wanted to honor that promise.

From start to finish this took me approx. 2.5 hours. I can tell I am getting quicker with my work.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is coming out in less than a week and I wanted to add this fandom into the piece since I know he’s a fan. I almost added Homer Simpson, but it didn’t feel right. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to put on his shirt and so I messaged him.

Today’s quote was a text to Jason asking him to pick Black Hawks or Transformers. He chose transformers and I found a picture he wore when we attended Denver Comic Con 2016.

Below is the original sketch. I ended up making Groot smaller, and you can see the Homer Simpson I almost started to draw. Thanks for reading!

To-Do-List

Kool aid points to anyone who could guess the name of my character!! – moi

When I was younger I wrote my own comic strip and called it “Esoteric.”I chose the title 1) because I like the meaning of the word Esoteric, “intended for or likely to be understood by only a small number of people with a specialized knowledge or interest.” and 2) the word has my name in it!

I’m not sure if I have them around anywhere, but they would probably make me super embarrassed to post since they were about my dorky high school adventures, and my blatantly obvious crush on my best friend.

My husband shared with me a comic made by Adam Ellis. I spent hours checking out his work. Adam if you read this you are FUCKING AMAZING, and you and my husband would be best friends.

I was inspired to make a comic strip tonight. At work our team was asked to create a “To-Do-List Board” and I just think about how it will look when it first gets started.

Thanks for reading!
