havent uploaded in the past couple days, I've got sketches from in class, but they need scannin'

Almost didnt do a sketch for tonight (besides commissions that I feel cheap posting) but i figured eh, why ruin my semi decent track record since the revival of shanty land.

So i drew...


Sadly, this is actually more decent than a previous attempt about a month ago done in a similar zombie-like state. One day i hope to be one of those cool kids with a drawn profile picture.
Except it'll be somehow way less lame and more stylized and colored and really portray just how awesome i really am. C: Blinkblink.

hellooooo sparta!

So today in class i drew a little greek (grecian?) girl playing with a puppy, which I guess is why i ended up going with the "Spartacus"(man i loved that show) theme tonight, and to which I... had issues with.. Hah. Still workin' on them people skills!

I think I may revisit this time period though, i've been trying to find things that I enjoy to draw that havent been too painfully overdone lately. So meh!

I really want to get some more stuff colored to post soon.
And... i need a scanner.

Oh. and this, just now:


Scarfy <3

salty dog

Not really finished :(

But fun to do, I feel like i start off alright on things like this, but then sort of get jumbled when it comes to lighting and color and details, which i suppose makes up of a vast majority of a painting.

Planning to look up reference and tutorials at some point, for learning purposes.

Apparently people dont like people who ramble on their blogs, well piss on that! I love to ramble, you dont have to read it (:

Kind of cheating, did this the other night, didnt think to scan/ save the sketches i did today.

Gatorgirls face... one day i'll get it right.

Subcats sink ships

Unfortunately my lack of scanner makes it hard to post the figure sketches I did today, or the watercolor painting i ended up doing last night (last night was a good art night for me) so i doodled Subcat again in the hopes to get settled back onto a design, as i'm hoping to board out my idea for a film about him, as well as Scarfy!

I think people assumed Subcat was supposed to be a female since i have a thing for main female characters, but I actually intended for him to be a male cat named Max or Maximus or something. Fun fact right there {:

Definitely nowhere near as lanky and smooth as the original was (Im pretty sure he's posted on this blog somewhere) so i'll be tweaking things later on.

And i drew this yesterday night? somewhere in limbo between the two days, for my mom of her great dane, who this actually looks nothing like, lol.

Welcome to Shanty Land

Look what I did today :D A banner for Shanty land!

I chose the url name thing for this blog at random, but it's really grown on me. I know i should probably have a standard Serene Wyatt one, but shanty land is like the dirty little secret that's fun to stumble across.

I decided earlier today that shanty land needed a banner (check!) and a mascot, which i guess is what led to the real sketch of the day:

What can i say? I love the swamp/bayou and all the critters that live in it, including this guy. You should just be glad there's not a picture of gatordog hidden in the background. (or is there...!)

Oh, and last one for the night, hopefully going to finish, ink and color this one. Jedi dogs.

Hello witch hazel

So i think sketch a day needs to be revived. I've had so much positive drive this semester that theres no reason i shouldn't be able to make time for a sketch a day. and hopefully you'll see fast improvement.

Did this sketch earlier today. My grandma used to call me Witch Hazel when I was little because I was such a witch. Not sure if it's from a story or something, but I got the urge to draw a little witch today, so what better fitting for a name than Hazel! I think for the rest of the month i'll doodle her here and there and develop more character/story, just for fun.
