High Tide by pallanoph
High Tide
(Had a fun day with technology, but now I can upload things from my laptop again! Wooo!)

A speed paint commission for Wolfrott of their sea dragon, playing with an ocean trout on the beach. This was quite fun, but I think it ran a bit long for a speed paint. :XD:

Commissions are indeed still open, please look in my gallery for the list since the links are not displaying. (wtf. Why.) I also have a list of subjects I would rather not/will not draw here: pallanophblargh.tumblr.com/pos…

Phthalo blue (green shade) and lemon yellow make the most delightful bright turquoise. :D

Watercolors on Arches 140 lb hot press watercolor paper, 8.5 x 11".

dA ate my description... I don't feel like writing it back out again.

Pallanoph doodle in Moleskine, inspired by Norse ship figureheads. I've been working (tentatively) on elaborating on the history between humans and pallanophs between commissions, which (for me) is a daunting task.

This offer ends November 9, at midnight Pacific time. Go go go! Grab mugs, t-shirts, phone cases, pillow cases, hoodies, clocks, or heck, just plain old prints! You can even find the ever popular Soviet Bear merchandise there. I've got new stuff I have not posted here for sale there. 

In other news, commissions are still open! I may document the queue and progress where you can keep track of it, if you like. I'm grinding away at the list and hope to have the majority of them finished/near finished before the year is up!

The Outsider by pallanoph
The Outsider
Yet another ballpoint pen Inktober remnant. I'm still torn on how many I should upload here.

This was originally a planar exercise to pick out the structure of pallanoph faces, but it became a rather intense portrait of Sorstan. "Look past what you think you know of me, what you were told to believe, and ask yourself: Is it true?"

His occupation as an assassin does not help matters much, but trust me, it's complicated. Heh.

Ballpoint (Bic!) pen in the moleskine. I'm sure dA will glitch out again and no one will see this, but I guess that's just something I'm going to have to get used to. ._.

Days to Come by pallanoph
Days to Come
Yeah! One of the most complex (and most overdue) multi-subject commission for the ever-patient NewShine

She wanted a positive scene of the future she is striving towards, something sunny and idyllic, part fantasy (that mare is something otherwordly!) and part reality. It took a lot of time to put all of the items into place (and I got to revisit some subjects I almost never draw!) but in the end, it came out better than I'd hoped for. Thanks, NewShine, for having confidence in me and helping me push through those annoying little artistic walls I ran into a couple of times. It really means a lot to me. :heart:

I was quite relieved to find that Mitch's brindle coat was easier to paint than I had anticipated. What a relief! :D

Watercolor (Winsor and Newton) , gouache (Winsor and Newton), and colored pencil (Caran d'Ache, Derwent) on Arches 140 lb hot press watercolor paper. (12x15", 30.48 x 38 cm) Too many hours, most of them spent in the drawing and color test phases! :XD:
