Elliot Wolf by ClayCowboys
Elliot Wolf
And here's the final character from the few - Elliot Wolf. :) 

Here's the old picture for reference: <da:thumb id="274675600">

These characters belong to me. 
Paradise by ClayCowboys
I've been experimenting with styles lately. I incorporated a little bit of Mucha into my own personal style after spying a calendar featuring Mucha's work (and a ton of glitter!) at a friend's house. I also experimented with plants, which isn't something I draw very often at all. 

The girl is Phoebe, the love interest of my lead character in my current novel. I may draw the lead next. We'll see. ;) 

Cloud brushes are from here:…
Tanya Lander by ClayCowboys
Tanya Lander
The next "crew member" from my miniseries - the deceptively delicate southern belle with a knack for math. :) Here's her old picture from three years ago for comparison:…

Tanya belongs to me.

The pattern of her dress is from Colourlovers.
Dolly Lou by ClayCowboys
Dolly Lou
This is Dolly Lou, the enchanted doll who tends to fall in love with the wrong guys. She's a minor character in my steampunk miniseries. Interestingly, I created this girl many, many, many moons ago. Her first form was in a paper doll that I used make fight my Stacey doll for Mojo's (from X-Men) affections (I was a twisted kid). Her bad taste in men hasn't changed (although she doesn't fall for characters who aren't in my world), but her looks have. :)

Dolly Lou belongs to me. 

The pattern on her dress is from ColourLovers. :) 
Zack Bridger by ClayCowboys
Zack Bridger
Here's the third "member of the crew" from my steampunk miniseries - the kindly inventor, Zack Bridger. In his hand is a ghost bomb. You really don't want him to use one in your presence. Seriously. Anyway, here's the old version from roughly three years prior:…

Zack and the rest of the characters belong to me.

The pattern of his shirt is from ColourLovers.

Actually, make that less than four months by one day. That's when I'll be moving across the pond to Spain. 

I was having moments over the course of the past few days where I was starting to rethink that decision, "Should I really do this?" and "Am I ready to take this big of a leap of faith?" The numero uno reason for that was that a guy had entered the picture. Or so I thought. And I worried, what if this works out? Will I be making a major sacrifice? 

Not to worry! Said dude and I were supposed to go on a date tonight, but then he texted me to announce that he'd met someone else.

So there's that.

Thus, it looks like my reservations were for naught. Yes, I'm definitely going to Spain. Yes, I'll be leaving friends and family and a sweet apartment behind (although my brother might move in once I'm out, so it'll still be "in the family") and, yes, I'll be moving to a country where I barely know the language and know not one person, but who cares? I've never left the continent. I'm terrified of flying. I'm terrified of flying overseas. But, God, the experiences and adventures I'm going to have are going to be so worth it and will only be more bits to incorporate into my writing. I'm so excited, but I'm also scared shitless, and I've got so much shit to do before November 1st that it's overwhelming.

So why the fuck did I cry over this dude again?
