Hermione and Luna

Hermione and Luna chibi parody art by Amy Crook

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

The second of Disco’s commissions, and I even got to make Hermione black, which is awesome.

The flowers in both crown and bouquet are flax blossoms, lavender, and azaleas, chosen for their meaning and also the pink-blue-purple color scheme. The ladies are sporting House-themed robes, and are generally looking pretty adorable together.

These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack. Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

Disco Chibi Portrait

Disco chibi parody portrait by Amy Crook

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

More commissions! Yes, my queue continues to be full, and yes, it’s awesome.

One of my wonderful online friends wanted a portrait of her sparkly nerd lesbian self with her fancy new mermaid hair and cute yellow short-shorts, front and back to make the most awesome silly chibi thing yet – pillows! Plush Disco for all!

And of course we made them into Slack emoji, since that’s where we primarily hang out, and what is chat without a disco-dancing Disco?

These are drawn as close to a square aspect ratio as possible, so that they work as emoji on Slack (and pillows!). Their adorable 2-head-high chibi style conveys a lot of personality in a tiny space.

The Autumn of Ashes

The Autumn of Ashes, ink art by Amy Crook

The Autumn of Ashes, 8″x4″ ink on Fluid watercolor paper

A ghostly apparition, white fog, and a leaf-crowned tree.

A bright pop of color slowly embraced by the fog, warm red-brown bark supporting the green and gold foliage of early fall. A cool grey figure that might be a spirit or might just be hidden by the mist.

What stories can you write for this image?

This is the perfect painting for someone with a head full of fairy tales who just needs a starting point to get their fingers moving.

Above, you can see the way the tree fades into the fog, and the tiny bit of mysterious shimmer hiding in the red-brown bark. Below, the piece floats in a frame, full of subtle detail the scanner can’t capture.

Instead, I’m concentrating on drawing things that make me happy this time around, with a side of clearing out my daunting commissions queue, so expect a hodgepodge of whatever mood strikes me throughout the month.
