Hulk Cuddle

HULK CUDDLE by Amy Crook, a pen and marker cartoon of the hulk giving Tony Stark a very enthusiastic hug

HULK CUDDLE, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

This image came about talking to my friends about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like you do, and one of them was enamored of it enough to commission it! I’m especially fond of tony’s wide-eyed look of dismay and Hulk’s upside-down frown of pure joy.

HULK LIKE TIN MAN.

Teehee.

My commissions queue is CLOSED right now and probably will be into next year, so if you were looking to get something, er, ever, you might want to get on the wait list.

Shiny Eevee

Shiny Eevee by Amy Crook, a drawing of a grumpy sleeping Eevee in shiny colors

Shiny Eevee, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Commissioner of Shiny Pokémon strikes again! This time we have a shiny Eevee sleeping like a winter fox, one eye open in the glare perfected by my grumpy cat. I seem to have a thing for grumpy sleeping Eeveelutions, but really, who can blame me?

Jolteon

Jolteon by Amy Crook, a drawing of the Jolteon Pokemon curled up like a cat, glaring

Jolteon, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Belladonna grumpily posed for this addition to my Pokémon series, an Eeveelution looking spiky, grumpy, and generally adorable. Jolteon is an electric type, and while he’s showing his claws, the zap he could give you is probably the real threat. Unlike most of this commission series, this one’s not shiny, though I did make a shiny variation with the power of Photoshop.

Inktober 2018: Week 1

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

Autumn winds are blowing and fire season is almost over, which means not only October, Halloween, and Pumpkin Spice, but Inktober! I’m doing one ink drawing per day all month, pulling from a number of prompt lists. This year I’m doing everything in the Artist’s Trading Card size of 3.5″x2.5″ and sticking to black and white with the occasional cheat of grey.

Sardines

Thursday, October 11th, 2018

Sardines by Amy Crook, whirling layers of silver sardines circling against a turquoise ink backdrop on buff paper

Sardines, 10″x8″ ink and watercolor on Arches cover buff paper

Monterey Bay Aquarium has a room where you can stand and watch sardines endlessly dance in circles around you, living flashes of silver in a meditative display.

The thick, buff-colored paper supports a brilliant turquoise ink wash with the perfect amount of watery softness to its shapes. Layers of abstract fish shine out of the blue in shade of silver that catch the light.

An infinite loop of motion and life!

Above you can see the abstract fishies up close, all light and shadow and overlapping motion. Below, the painting is in its tank, er, frame, on its way to its new home.

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

 

Sketches for Patreon supporters by Amy Crook, including Bitty from OMCP, Matt from Swan Song, and others

Sketches for Patreon supporters by Amy Crook, June 2018

My patient Patreon supporters have sketches! They’re all pretty bad about asking for them, lol, but I love every person anyway since that makes it easier for me to go above and beyond when the mood strikes.

From left to right, we have:

  • “storage units DOOM” for Jeff
  • Bitty from OMGCP for Grace
  • Matt from Swan Song for Corinne
  • and on the bottom, dark and gloomy and fiery for Springbok

Want one of your own? Become a patron!
