Sprig Wolf by DerSketchie
Sprig Wolf
...or "POST tablet Spring Wolf".

I'm so happy I just got the tablet I've been drooling over for the last 2 years! Makes work go 3x faster, at least. Made this a breeze, granted it did still take a few (pfft, "few") hours to get all the detail in there since it's such a huge size. Probably spent as much time on the fine detail of the wood as I did drawing the thing in my artbook!

Something I've been drawing while being stuck on another picture. I just love drawing anthropomorphic wood, I don't know why.

Sitting Tutorial (female)
Cannot believe I didn't think of this until now, but here is a tutorial on people sitting! I will totally (especially if I get the request for it) do a male version.
Child of Dust by DerSketchie
Child of Dust
A little while ago I gave a picture to a friend as a gift and apparently his mother went nuts over it, so I decided to make one for her too. I asked what she likes and he said "angels. She loves angels." and so here we are. It's being printed right now and we're gonna go pick up a frame for it. Best part is she has no idea it's coming :) She's a wonderful woman and she deserves a wonderful gift.

I called it Child of Dust because it reminds me of Thrice's "Child of Dust" song and how peaceful and humbling it is to me. Here's the lyrics for anyone who's curious:

Dear prodigal you are my son and I
Supplied you not your spirit, but your shape.
All Eden's wealth arrayed before your eyes,
I fathomed not you wanted to escape.

And though I only ever gave you love,
Like every child you've chosen to rebel.
Uprooted flowers and filled the holes with blood,
Ask not for whom they toll, the solemn bells.

A child of dust, to mother now return,
For every seed must die before it grows.
And though above the world may toil and turn,
No prying spades will find you here below.

Now safe beneath their wisdom and their feet
Here I will teach you truly how to sleep.


I've been getting a lot of comments about my tutorials, but sometimes I get stuck thinking of things people may want to learn, so I encourage suggestions for future ones. Also, anybody is free to use said tutorials however they want, the only stipulation being that you can't repost actual tutorial claiming it as your own. That'd just be weird.

Don't be weird.

Now that that's out of the way, I've been studying anatomy for the past year or so trying to gear up for what is hoped to be a pretty big project. Muscles are more fun than I thought :) Got into zombies not too long ago and it seems to have really stuck, not just for drawing, but also books, cinematics, comics (I know, just a type of book, but it feels like it still warrants it's own category), and documentaries.

Hope you guys enjoy my stuff!
