Surrender

Surrender, 6″x6″ watercolor on paper

I found this pose on the model’s tumblr, and it made me think of the Winter Soldier from the comics, who is shorter and more slender than the absolute unit from the MCU.

I wanted to experiment both with the figure drawing and some unusual color choices, using shades of blue and violet for the shadows as a contrast to the pinkish white boy skin tones.

Poor Bucky looks so vulnerable, with his little feet curled under and his hands behind his head, a deliberate contrast to the intimidating picture he makes in his full uniform and face mask, armed to the teeth and dangerous all day.

Surrender, detail, by Amy Crook

Above, you can see how the blues and pinks and purples are layered rather than mixed to create shadow and highlight spaces in the figure. Below, he’s trapped in a frame, just waiting to find out what happens next.

June 2020 Patreon Sketches

Friday, August 28th, 2020

I took some time off in July to have a lot of migraines, so that was great, but I’m feeling better now despite the state being on fire and everything, and hey, my theme of Black Lives Matter for those prompts is really still relevant, so here we go:

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Corinne wanted a BLM emoji for Slack, so I’ll be combining this with a Pride abstract I painted back in June for the actual finished item.
  • Kim asked for Scary Anglerfish in July, and since she hadn’t made a June request she got this guy

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Amy B asked for “no Pride without Marsha P. Johnson” and I found a great photo of her with a big hat.
  • Roxanne asked to be surprised with a black MCU character, so the Falcon flew in to say Black Lives Matter.
  • Jeff asked for George Washington Carver, and there’s a lot of dumb jokes in here since he invented a ton of peanut products but not peanut butter, and also a subtle dig on the whole gif pronunciation debate.
  • Rebecca S asked for Justice, and got this “No Justice, No Peace” word art.

Thank you for the support and patience of all my wonderful patrons, who keep me in tea and paint and cat food! You can be one of them here.

May 2020 Patron Sketches

Friday, July 24th, 2020

Everything is late and slow right now, please be kind to your artist! All of these got posted publicly to my Patreon when they were finished, and were drawn/painted by request of my lovely supporters there. Consider joining up as a supporter if you have a few dollars a month to spare!

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Amber asked for “I’m melting!” and got Ditto for, uh, reasons
  • Amy B asked for a bat and got this silhouetted fruit bat
  • Rey asked for Patience and I couldn’t resist making it a bit golden

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Another kitty portrait for Corinne, this time Gramsci being longcat
  • “Brain Fog” for Kim

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • Rebecca was wondering what Bucky was up to, so I put him in a coffee shop AU. This IS his customer service face, tyvm.
  • Eric asked for a MerMay Cloud Strife, and yeah, I dunno. Emo boy is emo.

ACEO sketches by Amy Crook for Patreon supporters

  • PG asked for a porcupine, and got this fellow and his bad hair day.
  • Deinvati asked for Shark and knew exactly what she was gonna get. It’s DC canon now, don’t blame me. It’s naughty, so click to see a less-censored version. Mom, don’t look! XD Uncensored version linked here with more, uh, related art.
  • Andria asked for dark purple lisianthus, and got some floofy abstract flowers.
  • Grace asked for Escape and I’m afraid I can never hear that word and not think of Dory. Esss-cahp-ay!

Thanks once again to all my wonderful supporters, who keep me in tea and paint and cat food! June’s very late sketches coming soon to an internet near you.

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!

  • nfs = not for sale, ie, it’s a Patreon sketch and already belongs to someone else
  • ACEO = Artist Card, Edition Original, also known as ATC or Artist Trading Card when traded rather than sold, which is a standard size I use for all my Patreon sketches these days

Want to get your own sketches, dibs on art, or just feel the warm glow of being part of my community of supporters? Head over to Patreon and pick a tier to get started! There’s also bonus cat photos sometimes, if that helps.

Inktober 2019, week 1 plus

Friday, October 11th, 2019

Normally I do these on Mondays, but I was out of town and then there was some kind of power shutoff madness (mine was supposed to go but did not? whatever, PG&E, you run your public utility like the Muppet Show.) So, anyway, here you go, week one-and-then-some of Inktober!
