SeaHorse, Figure Drawing and my Favorite Helper Cat

Made it to figure drawing this week (yay!) Even though I haven’t had much time to work on personal projects, I still have been able to make it to class pretty consistently.

Here is what I left with this week:

Some obligatory photos of my cat “helping” with one of my drawings… because this is the internet and one must always see lots of photos of cats being cute.

And lastly this drawing I made a while back and forgot to scan it. I was going to try to draw a SeaHorse wearing a Plague Mask for Starr… but the shape of the Plague Mask didn’t really work with the SeaHorse. It wasn’t different enough from the normal shape of the head/nose.

So instead I made a pseudo SteamPunk SeaHorse… and I do not claim to be any kind of SteamPunk authority, so if it is not authentic Steam Punk, please do not tell me why. Just pretend it is a poser SteamPunk SeaHorse that didn’t know any better.

  1. Nice! I like the seahorse drawing a lot. Also, are there people who refer to themselves as Steampunk Authorities? I want to be an expert in something.

    • It has been my experience that in any sub-culture, there are “authorities”. They tend to be hostile. I like to avoid hostile people whenever possible.

  2. I absolutely LOVE that seahorse.

    And anyone who would tell you there are “rules” for Steampunk clearly doesn’t understand the “punk” component. 😉

  3. Your seahorse is awesome! Are you considering selling prints?

    • Thanks Renee! I don’t have any plans for prints of that one. I did think about making it a painting – but I always have many more thoughts for paintings than paintings that actually get made.

  4. I am so in love with your seahorse, I’m most likely going to get it as a tattoo. Could you provide me with a copy?
    Thank you so much for making such a great piece! It may sound strange to some that that is exactly what I was looking for a steampunk seahorse and ta da! I’m so lucky to have found yours!

    • Hi Misty,
      I am really happy to hear that my seahorse drawing inspires you enough to want to have it tattooed on you. I do not have any prints of the piece available. Any decent tattoo artist should be able to draw you one based on the image that is on here. If they don’t think they can do that without line art or a direct photo, then I certainly would advise against letting them tattoo you. I hope you find someone that can make you a beautiful tattoo that you will be happy to wear for a lifetime.
