Oh my goodness, I am having so much fun drawing Pokemon spirit animals! Over the past few days I’ve drawn Gengar and Bulbasaur.
I’m experimenting more with the tools in Krita, and have been getting bolder with highlights and shadows. I think my technique has improved! It’s also been a lot of fun researching these Pokemon to find positive traits that would make them good spirit animals.

In other news, when I’m not working on my drawing tablet, I’m either reading gardening books or working on my Bring in the Clowns socks. They’re coming along great- I’ve finished the first and am increasing for the toe-up gusset on the second.
The toe-up gusset is pretty interesting. I’ll share better photos of it when both socks are done.
I just love how the rainbow yarn contrasts with the black to mimic stained glass. It reminds me of Saint Chapelle chapel in Paris, or Grace Cathedral in San Francisco. I also like how they are extra tall! I asked for Doc Martens for Christmas, and I like to wear long socks with them so the boots don’t chafe my legs. These will be perfect.
