Chinhands and Spittake

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Arthur from Inception doing the chinhands pose, and Eames doing a spittake in chibi style

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

More commissions! More Inception! More chibis!

This wonderful person was happy to be led to my list of needed emojis for our Slack, and we chose the chinhands and spit take as ones for her commission. Especially of note are Eames’ purple trackies, and Arthur’s beautiful blush.

Want a commission of your own? Email me and I’ll get you in the queue!

Cheerful Helena

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Helena from Orphan Black, looking cheerful in a comic style

Cheerful Helena, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

The second of my Orphan Black commissions, Helena here is for a birthday card! She’s looking very cheerful and only a little like she might bite, really. Lots of tiny pattern on this one, the plaid on her outfit plus the tiny paisleys on her shirt were a challenge.

My commissions queue is opening up soon, so email me if you want to get on the wait list!

Growth 10

Growth 10, abstract art by Amy Crook

Growth 10, 6″x6″ pen & ink and watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

This is the first time in the Growth series that we’ve got actual growing things instead of mere seeds. The central core is a warm, inviting mix of earthy browns, and there are even green sprouts curling outward toward the universe, anchored by the rich red roots.

Have you put down roots, or are you still floating in the void, hoping to find something to nurture your growth?

Above, you can see the red-brown roots and green sprouts, as well as the earth-brown seeds and the rich mix of watercolor that make up our growing world. Below, the painting is in its frame, and already trying to outgrow it!

Me Three

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

Me Three, watercolor horizon by Amy Crook

Me Three, 8″x4″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

A horizon at the edge of day and night. Twisted skeletons of winter trees. Birds flying in the background.

It’s a bit on the nose to call this typical example of my oeuvre “Me Three,” but sometimes the titles pick you.

The sky is a beautiful clear blue shading to the gold of sunrise, and the clouds float above with a mix of golden light and purple shadows. Trees full of character show just a touch of texture in the gleam of morning. A trio of long-necked birds make their way through the morning air.

Above, you can see the twisty trees, wispy clouds, and flappy birds. Below, the painting is tucked into a frame, just waiting to find its home with you.

Shiny Umbreon

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Shiny Umbreon, Pokemon fan art by Amy Crook

Shiny Umbreon, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Shiny Umbreon is, I have to admit, a favorite of mine. This catdog Pokemon is one of a bunch of related things that evolve from Eevee, and basically they’re all great but the goth one is the best, the end.

If you’d like to get in the queue for a commission of your own, send me an email! The wait list is the only way to get one right now, for what I hope are obvious reasons after two weeks of commission posts.

Summer Day Inception

Summer Day Inception, a Grease parody of Inception with chibis, by Amy Crook

Summer Day Inception, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

And so we continue the “you had to be there” week of FANbruary with this Inception/Grease mashup. Eames cleans up nicely for the Sandra Dee role, while Arthur greases down just as excellently. Look at the shine on that hair!

Next Big Thing

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

Next Big Thing, Inception parody art by Amy Crook

Next Big Thing, 7″x5″ pen and ink and Copic marker on paper

There is an explanation for this art, but it’s long and strange and really all you need to know is that it’s a commission for the writer of the single most-commented fic on a certain archive.

It’s also another entry for FANbruary, which is a lovely celebration of fandom.
