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!

Playboy Genius

chibi fan art of Tony Stark by Amy Crook

Playboy Genius by Amy Crook, 4.25″x5.5″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

I doodled this in my sketchbook the other day and liked it so much I finished it up and scanned it. Tony Stark is, in his own words, a billionaire genius playboy philanthropist, not to mention Iron man. This little chibi reflects at least two of those qualities!

Concentric 1

Friday, June 8th, 2018

Concentric 1 by Amy Crook, abstract art of white patterns on a purple background with gold flecks

Concentric 1, 10″x8″ ink on Fluid watercolor paper

Circles within circles, swirls within swirls. This abstract painting is full of shine and complexity, gold like scattered petals floating through everything while translucent, pearlescent white makes concentric shapes all through the complex background.

The violet has deconstructed itself as much as everything else, red and blue visible in places while still letting the eye find purple first and foremost.

The first in a series, this painting is immensely fun to sit and play with, moving it back and forth so the different metallics catch the light or vanish into the shadows like floating seeds sinking below the water.

Above, you can see the shimmering white pearl and gold paints catching the light, giving up their translucency and becoming solid, floating above the purple instead of fading into it. Below, the painting is waiting in a frame to be mailed off to its new home.

Whorled

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

an abstract watercolor of overlapping turquoise spirals accented in coppery gold by Amy Crook

Whorled, 8″x8″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

Swirls and whorls and spirals decorate this beautiful turquoise abstract. The shining texture of the overarching spiral gives it a dragon-like feeling, with its copper eye and snakelike head at the center.

The detail photo has perhaps the best color, but like so many things in life this one has to be seen live to be properly appreciated.

One patron said, “Oh, it’s another Moana painting!” and while they’re not wrong, this one has more of a sly, sideways reference, bursts of shining heat within the ocean’s cool blues rather than a direct quote.

Above, you can see the sun shining off the iridescent paints, bringing out the coppery and turqouise tones. Below, the painting is framed and waiting to bring something shiny into your day.

a shiny pink Dragonair flying about a normal blue Dragonair, Pokemon fan art by Amy Crook

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

Another rare alternate color scheme Pokemon commission for Sekrit Patron! This time we went for double the loveliness of this pretty dragon type with the normal blue and “shiny” pink twined together in draconic curiosity, if not love.

Oh, Brilliant!

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

parody cartoon of the 13th Doctor next to the TARDIS saying, Oh Brilliant!

Oh, Brilliant! 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper

The 13th Doctor has been revealed and I agree with her assessment – Brilliant! She’s got a quirky aesthetic that calls back to previous Doctors while being thoroughly modern, a great smile, and of course her very own TARDIS. I can’t wait to see what becomes of her!

Etsy is having a big sale through March 29, and I’m in on it! Get 15% off the whole shop, no code needed — including this image, which would make a brilliant birthday card if I do say so myself!

Shiny Rowlet

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

a drawing of the Pokemon Rowlet in its Shiny color scheme, flying and looking happy

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

Another shiny Pokemon! This guy is also a commission, of course — I’m finally getting the hang of drawing them in a dynamic manner, especially after Umbreon last month. The “shiny” refers to a color change, this one’s normally brown and leaf green, but he’s looking pretty spiffing here in his alternate palette.

For the fellow nerds out there, I finally got my first shiny on Dratini Day, mainly because they were everywhere — I ended up with six!
