Of course I had to do a fan art of my most favorite cartoon of my childhood AND adulthood, Sailor Moon!! I’ve always loved the image of them hanging out in/outside of this brick building in their street clothes… I redesigned them (obviously) to reflect myself a bit more, thus making them a different ethnicity than the original characters. I also switched the position of Rei/Raye and Makoto/Lita. Originally, Rei/Raye is seen sitting on the ball with a sports cap on. Now Makoto/Lita sits there decked out in athletic wear and cornrows.

I don’t own any characters from Sailor Moon, this is simply a fan art to appease my love for them.

Maximilian Goof is one of my favorite Disney characters of all time. So adorkable! I’ve seen Disney’s “A Goofy Movie” and “An Extremely Goofy Movie” a trillion times, and still love them to this day!  You may have already guessed it, but I am watching “A Goofy Movie” right now and decided to draw Max and his “adorkableness” ^-^ Enjoy! ‪#‎nessnsketch‬ ‪#‎sketch‬ ‪#‎agoofymovie‬ ‪#‎disney‬ ‪#‎maxgoof‬

outrageously-vanessa:

Figurative sketches for a new series of illustrations I am doing. It is about time I start scratching things off of the illustration idea list that I have created for myself over the years!!! ~_~ And no, I have not forgotten about the caricature series, I will get back to that soon enough ;) #nessnsketchoverhaul

Ugh, you can tell it is late when I post something on the wrong blog via phone and have to reblog it onto the rightful tumblog… Yeah…


Good night!

Hayley, Jeannie, and Krystal drawn as Sailor Jupiter. These are the first of many in a series of caricatures based on poll results. I did a survey of people’s favorite sailor scouts and in return for answering the question, I’m rewarding them with a caricature of themselves as their favorite senshi. (And in another poll… favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! character)

HIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII EVERYONE! *waves frantically* I’m so sorry that I haven’t had any illustration-doodley-sketchy-drawing-scribbles-visual eye candiness- for you all for baaaaaaaaasically half a year  (so it seems)… o.O’. I know I said I’d be better about that.
I have been swamped with this one children’s book project for a long time now and can finally see the light at the end of this deep, dark tunnel!!!! Please bare with me a little bit longer! I’m almost done! And soon, this blog will be booming with some awesome stuff straight out of the Ness-n-Sketch corner. ^-^
*ahem* Well anyways.. I was feeling really bummed out about not having a lot of sketches uploaded …so I decided to do a quick caricature of me and two of my friends. We three are huge fans of Little Kuriboh’s “Yu-Gi-Oh The Abridged Series” and I told them years ago that I’d do a caricature of us as the protags from the “Bonds Beyond Time Abridged Movie.” We voted on who would be whom: I’m Yugi, Kiara is Jaden and Jacob is Yusei. Sorry, it took like three… (or four??) years to put this idea on paper, y’all! Hope you like it. I plan to color it digitally, whenever I take another breather from my main work. 
A million thanks for baring with me all this time. Much love. Good night/morning! ^-^

Tonight’s watercolor Ness-n-Sketch session.

I love all the colors used in it to create the skin tones…I really like the vividness of the watercolor. I plan to do more caricatures and/or portraits like this in the future. I really want to add more colorful pieces to my portfolio…

To finish off this image, I think I will overlay my decorative inking style on top, after applying another coat of watercolor. I’m really excited for this piece, and hope it will impress the committee at the meeting, the author I’m working with is attending. O___O
