Animal instinct?

I am going to offer you a sketch I did this week for the challenge! I am still trying to find time to finish the other half my last jerk and draw, but it'll get done eventually!


I am super ashamed that I haven't finished the last two Jerk and Draws. I promise i will finish them and post them soon >

In the meantime, Here are some creepy imsorryfornotposting birds that I drew during perspective last semester...

Animal Instinct

So the new topic is "Animal Instinct"!
The task is very simple...
pick a subject and have it take on some animal characteristic or quality.

and I would like the choice to not be a furry mainly because that is really overdone. If it is a furry, at least make it more interesting than the many, many pieces on websites like Deviantart.

Also I'm sorry I didn't update and have not really submitted anything... the summer has been distracting.

I will be working on this one and I can't wait to see what you guys put up!

I think I need to be more specific for what I meant by "subject".
You are free to do anthropomorphic creatures, the note about furries was to broaden the scope. You are also free to pay homage to creatures of the half man - half animal nature or combine things up. A subject can be anything from plants, weather, robots, etc. I just wanna see some RAWR in it. BE FIERCE!

The examples above are from one of my fav artists, Yoshitaka Amano. The first one is the robotic horse from Vampire Hunter D, I couldn't find a illustration that showed the detail so this is a photo of a character model. The second one is from Guin Saga, about mysterious warrior Guin who has a leopard mask magically affixed to his head.

I'm actually doing two pieces for this topic (which is why there is tape on one side of the illustration)... this is the first half!! It's a little girl's dream, water color and gouache!

Next Person

Next person to choose a topic for Jerk and Draw...
Danni Wu!

Something about the mind, and what it stirs up while you sleep. So many dreams are really narrative/ seem to have some kind of story line, so that would be cool if you could see some kind of story in the picture about whats happening in the dream. Dreams, the affects of dreams, basically the most bizarre feelings you can put onto paper/ digital.

And I guess have it involving someone, maybe yourself? Or anyone. They're your dreams.

Beth's Star Wars


Weird chicken/scarecrow/owl/alien/...thing

This theme allowed me to do something that Scott Robertson talked about in his lecture last semester...


Yeah... I had fun with these and I liked this one the best. Unfortunately, I've been working on portraits a lot this week so i didn't spend a ton of time on this piece. I like the loose style though... I'm trying to cultivate it currently...


star wars sketch

Didn't have time to do a full on piece so I whipped up a sketch!

Ooh Baby Baby

Look at this red hot babe-- workin' it in the 21st century.

I cannot tell you how many disturbing pictures I saw while looking for reference for this theme. Especially since my first thought was skin disease.

Beth's Little Lady

Can I just tell you...


At first I was just going to do some art nouveau inspired 60's poster design with some beautiful red woman but then I was looking at some arts on the interwebs and came across this beautiful piece of a face surrounded by a cloak of fabric that had these fictional animals all interwoven in it. I thought it was really beautiful and just doodled something like it in my sketchbook.

Later, I was all "oh... The turban kinda reminds me of a rose" and then I was all "THIS WILL WORK FOR LADY IN RED!!!"

I have to say, after seeing Millie's piece I really wanted to turn out something cool and I'm quite proud of this.

Process is on my blog :)
