April Patreon Sketches

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

I continue to be not dead yet! Things are a bit mad here, and somehow I’ve managed to go over my commissions limit again without meaning to, which means the queue is firmly closed with two people on the waiting list right now. That said, Patreon supporters continue to get their sketches! And someday I’ll have three seconds to put together a sale of all these little ACEOs I have lying around that were either for someone who doesn’t get to keep their card, or just random doodles I did while avoiding the actual requests.

ACEO sketch cards by Amy Crook

  • Mal modeled “frolic” for Andria but apparently disapproved of the result
  • Deinvati asked for Cavill and got a leonine Geralt
  • the silver and black abstract was just my inner goth playing around
  • and Rebecca asked for “space” and got a whole galaxy

ACEO sketch cards by Amy Crook

  • Kim asked for an itchy hedgehog and got this silly thing
  • Jeff wanted Captain Christopher Pike and I liked his giant grey bouffant
  • Grace asked for a rainbow & is a Virgo, so she got the constellation hiding in this textured rainbow-flag-ish bit of canvas paper
  • sekrit patron Rey asked for FREEDOM! in reference to finally leaving his terrible contract job, and I was late but it’s very shiny
  • sekrit patron Amber asked for Goosfraba and then had to explain it, lol

ACEO sketch cards by Amy Crook

  • Eric asked for “not so sekrit” now that he’s an official patron, and got spideybutt
  • Corinne asked for Raccoon (her cat), and after sending me 17 pics I ended up using one out of my txts from 2 months ago heh

Jealous? Get your own next month!

Sunday Round-Up & Sad Hedgehog

Sunday, April 28th, 2013

swirling things and smiling things and curious things, oh my

swirling things and smiling things and curious things, oh my

Another week, another batch of art posts. Monday there was a lovely Gibbous Moon, and Tuesday the tentacles came out to play. Wednesday we had a review of the art I’ve made on lovely black paper. Thursday Dori offered you some tea, Friday this otter was very curious what you were on about, and Saturday Mrs Hudson reminded you that she’s not your housekeeper, dear.

For Sunday, of course, there’s another sketch! This little pen-and-ink hedgie’s a sad and sorry sort, but he’ll cheer up if you rub his tummy, I’m sure of it.

Angry Hedgehog

Angry Hedgehog, watercolor by Amy Crook

Angry Hedgehog, watercolor by Amy Crook

This hedgehog is very annoyed to have been disturbed, with a serious sulk going on as he’s curled into his little ball. He was painted with a very limited palette and bold, expressionist strokes, so he’s a bit of an experiment for me, but one I’m very happy with! I offered a little preview of him to my list and one of my lovely patrons snapped him up, so he’ll be going to a good home, too.

Above, you can see his pouty lip and little pink toes peeking out of his quills. Below, he’s been tucked into a temporary frame, so you can see how the iridescent paint blends into the rest of him when it’s not catching the light.

Further Adventures of Otter & Hedgehog

Floating Nap, dorky fan art by Amy Crook

Floating Nap, dorky fan art by Amy Crook

Another week, another piece of adorable otter/hedgehog art. I imagine this is the missing bit between the first two pieces, after the hedgehog got tired of swimming but before they dried off and curled up in their scarves to nap.

I imagine this because I’m a big dorky fangirl, and I enjoy it.

Hedgehog & Otter Adventures

Floating Along, dorky fan art by Amy Crook

Floating Along, dorky fan art by Amy Crook

If you’re on Tumblr or in my brain you’ll understand completely when I say this is actually Harry Potter/Sherlock crossover fan art with Animagus forms.

If you’re not, then look at the adorable otter and hedgehog. They’re floating! They’re friends!

There is, of course, the nap after to be considered as well. Those involved in the aforementioned fannish telepathy will know exactly which scarf is whose and why.

Hedgehog Hammock

Hedgehog Hammock by Amy Crook

Hedgehog Hammock by Amy Crook

When I showed him this sketch, my friend Jeff asked, “Is that a really small person, or a really huge hedgehog?”

My response now is the same as it was then — whatever makes the viewer smile more.

Have a great weekend!
