Happy Halloween!

I can’t believe it’s already NaNoWriMo time. Here’s the final eclectic mix of commissions, Patron sketches, and spoopiness — next month I’ll be locked in a closet writing solarpunk, haha.

Curious Otter

Curious Otter, expressionist watercolor by Amy Crook

Curious Otter, expressionist watercolor by Amy Crook, $299

This curious little otter is peering at you through a sunlit window into his little pool. He’s done with a limited palette of watercolors and a little bit of water-blurred pen & ink to add that feeling of a reinforced window. He’s a bit of an odd size, but mounting him on a piece of mat board lets you appreciate the hand-torn irregularity of the paper’s edges. The soft paper lends some really nice texture to the loose, expressionist brush strokes.

Curious Otter, 7″x7″ watercolor on paper, $299 with free shipping.

Above, you can see the otter up close, peering at you with his sharp black eyes while the rest of him grows ever fainter in the water’s slightly murky depths. Below, you can see him in a temporary frame, displayed in all his nosy glory with his little hedgehog buddy.

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.

Floating Nap, 7″x5″ pen & ink and Copic markers on paper, nfs (commission).

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.
