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!

Oi! Happy Holidays! an Orphan Black parody comic by Amy Crook

Oi! Happy Holidays! 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

Another commission! I’m clearing out my queue to make room for my wait list, lol, so if you’re thinking of getting something now’s the time to toss your hat in the ring!

This is Felix from Orphan Black, celebrating the winter holidays in a way only he can. We made a card with him saying, “Oi! Merry Christmas!” and “Oi! Happy Hanukkah!” His robe is nicely Solstice-y, too!

Cuplets

Cuplets, commission comic portraits by Amy Crook

Cuplets, 7″x5″ pen and ink and Copic marker on paper

My lovely patron, who sometimes gets called a teacup-sized human, has made some tiny humans of their own! They asked to be immortalized in chibi form, and thus we have the cuplets. We went with a mix of new-school design and old-school bright comic colors for our Wonder Woman, and old school all the way for Spock’s cosplay.

Basically, they have the best parent and I have the best patrons.

Bear and Alphie

Bear and Alphie, pet portraits by Amy Crook

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

Bear is a big, old dog and the third puppy to get his portrait done for Courtney! And to finish up  the quartet we have her own cat, Alphie. We decided to draw him as a happy murder baby, despite being asleep in nearly all the photos she sent me. You can practically see his butt wiggle!

Doing caricatures of pets is an interesting exercise! I exaggerated Alphie’s ears and Bear’s big head, and made the body rounder for the kitty, but smaller for the big puppy.

Tails both have the requisite amount of floof, however.

My commissions queue is jam-packed right now, but if you’re interested in reserving a spot drop me a line!

Indigo and Ciara

Indigo and Ciara, pet portraits by Amy Crook

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

These two adorable puppies are part of my recent foray into pet portraiture!

Indigo and Ciara are buddies, and so they got paired up on the same page. They’re each drawn to fit inside a 3″x3″ square, just like the chibis from earlier, only this time it’s cute doggos instead of people!

Courtney sent me several pictures of each of them, and then we chatted about what poses to put everyone in. She’s especially fond of Ciara’s cocked head, and Indigo’s cute little puppy grin.

They’re good dogs, Brent.

Tea: Molly Hooper

Tea: Molly Hooper, Sherlock parody art by Amy Crook

Tea: Molly Hooper, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This last piece in the Tea Series features the adorkable Molly Hooper, the pathologist from whose morgue Sherlock keeps borrowing all manner of unpleasant items. She’s got a soothing cup of Darjeeling, probably to help her nerves after one of Sherlock’s visits.

One of my favourite patrons commissioned me to draw a series of 4 little comic portraits of her favourite characters with their favourite teas. Favourites all around!

This third piece in the Tea Series features DI Lestrade from the BBC Sherlock series. The put-upon detective inspector needs a strong, bracing cup of Assam to help him keep up with Sherlock’s antics.
