New artsy stuff

I’ve been busy with random stuff this whole month, dogs and work and dogs and the employment office and more dogs… I’m tired.

Oggie has been here for 3 weeks now and will stay for another week. While it has been fun to have him here it will be a relief when he goes home.
He’s sweet and funny, but I can’t believe how such a tiny body can hold so much energy. He never sleeps! And he’s so social/insecure/curious (I haven’t decided which of those options it is yet) that he follows me around like a tail. A very small tail that is. Very easy to step on or trip over. It’s a miracle there’s no broken bones.

Yeah, he’s cute enough and such – but I think I still prefer my lazy, independent cat-dog Zaphod.

But I have had a little time set aside to be creative!

I have a new layout up, this time suitably featuring a witch :) The other layout was cute and colourful, but I don’t know… It wasn’t me. This one is much more my style.
Here’s a bigger version of the witch if you want to see:

Imaginary Karin - witch way drawing

I also drew this:

Imaginary Karin - bat whippet

Don’t ask me where it came from, I started drawing a whippet, plain and simple – but somewhere along the way he seems to have grown bat wings :crazy:

And finally I’ve also managed to upload some new dolls:

Both are made for the art forum Sunblight. The first is a mugshot portrait for the yearbook and the other is a doll for a base edit contest (cross your fingers for me!).
I’m really satisfied with the mugshot, it actually looks like me! I just had to edit the face a bit.

So… busy or not. I have to say it has been a few productive weeks anyway :)

    OMG! Everything is beautiful. Oh, you want energy? Get a Chihuahua they never ever settle down. Candi runs around all the time. She thinks she is a German Shepherd when she is only about 4 pounds in weight. :D

    I love the new layout! The grey with splashes of color in the header looks really neat, and of course the drawing of the witch is great.

    Oggie sounds a lot like my dog. He follows me around everywhere. I don’t really mind it, I guess because I’ve grown accustomed to it.

    Good luck in the contest!

    I feel like I repeat myself every time I visit and you have a new layout. Your artwork is incredible! I love the witch in the head image so much. So cute. I’ve done base editing before but mine were never that amazing. :heart:

    I love the new layout and your other graphics. The mugshot is great! Makes me think of that quote people like to put on their Helgon presentations. Och här isåg jag att visst ja, det går bra att skriva på svenska till dig. Jag glömmer alltid bort det! XD Iaf, påminner mig alltså om citatet folk sätter på sina helgonpresentationer som lyder “Come over to the dark side. We have cookies” eller något liknande.

    EEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! :love: The little pixel-you standing next to the height chart made me squeal, in real life. Man, that’s awesome!! I know I’ve said it countless times before, but your pixel art absolutely amazes me. I also love your drawings!!

    You do such awesome work, Karin!! :heart:
