puppy day

[listening to "the greatest" by sia ft. kendrick lamar]
 
so it's apparently National Puppy Day! who comes up with this stuff?? luckily, i just happen to LOVE dogs! i'm certainly one of those that wouldn't get into an argument over whether cats or dogs are better - cuz i know the correct answer. HAHA!

anyways, i figured today is a good day to post all the little dog illustrations that i drew for the past pet expo. these are all printed on 9x12 paper so i may bring them to conventions with me. not sure how much folks will like it enough to buy it but i guess we'll see.

HUG A PUPPY TODAY! 
u won't regret it. unless it's a puppy that has fleas. i regret flea bites every single time.
(doesn't happen often, but when it does it's friggin infuriating.)

b and b

[listening to "take a chance on me" by abba]

only now as i type this does it dawn on me that listening to "take a chance on me" by abba is quite appropriate for the subject of this post. haha!

since the movie comes out tomorrow, i thought it'd be cool to post this character lineup of some Beauty and the Beast characters. i did this a couple of months ago. it's for a project for this company that didn't pan out. i'm very disappointed of course, if u know my love of disney. at the same time, however, there are just lots of disappointments that come with great opportunities, not just in the business of comics but in every part of life. just gotta pick urself up and keep going forward. so since this will never see the light of day, this is as close as it gets.

i did have fun with it tho. i got to draw (and color) Belle and some of her friends the way i'd like to draw them but still grounded in that classic Disney look. would i have loved to work on it forreals, absolutely. but am i angry? nah. if anything, at least it's given me some fun pieces of artwork. =)

dogs dogs

[listening to "thriller" by michael jackson]

been working on a small series of dog illustrations for a pet expo that i attend every year with my IDSTUDIOS crew. it's not the usual convention scene for us. we do it because Jerry and Flash draw pet caricatures (and they're pretty damn good at it too) but just this year it dawned on us that we should have some pet illustrations as prints to sell at our booth to help bring the revenue up a bit. which seemed like a DUH moment. so of course this year we'll only have a handful but next year it should be double the number.

i've got a couple of ideas floating around in my head but these are the ones i've completed so far. i have a week left to finish them up so i should be posting more.

my Patreon supporters get both of these illustrations as high-res downloads. if you're interested, click the big ORANGE BUTTON that says BECOME A PATRON on the top right-hand side and JOIN US!

sketchcover commission sale

[listening to "n.e. heartbreak" by new edition]

blank sketch covers available

as i was tidying up last night, i found this batch of blank sketchcovers with no homes to go to. sooo i've decided to do a COMMISSION SALE!
normally, i only do sketchcovers at comic cons and my color commissions start at $150 for full body. but it wouldn't be a sale if it wasn't a significant amount off so $50 off! here are the details:
  1. choose from the covers i have pictured above (3 SPIDER-GWEN #1, 2 STAR WARS #1, & 1 DARTH VADER #1)
  2. choose which character you'd like to have drawn (it doesn't have to be from the same universe as that of the cover - if U don't mind, i don't mind.)
  3. it's $100 per cover, full-color single character only, plus $7 to ship anywhere in the U.S. (additional characters and international shipping is doable, but will be an extra charge)
  4. send me an email to PENELOPE @ IDENTITYCOMICS . COM and let me know what you're looking for or if you have any other questions.
  5. get your commission in 2-3 weeks in the mail! if you want to save on shipping, you can pick it up from me at a comic con that i'll be attending (commission must be prepaid though)
  6. sale is only available on these sketchcovers until i run out of em.
here are some samples of commissions i've done recently. i mostly use copic markers and colored pencils, but sometimes i'll take some watercolor for some background splashes. hit me up if you're interested!!

Valentine 2017

[listening to "sometimes" by ariana grande]
Valentine 2017

thought i'd pause what i'm working on for a quick Valentine's Day doodle. ok, so i missed the day a little, but it's whatevs.
since i've been a part of the Girls Drawin Girls group, i've drawn this sassy pink-haired gal, aptly named Valentine, for the weekly theme this time of the year. so i figured i'd draw her again. her previous iterations are below.
this one only took me a total of 1 hr and 45 mins so i think i've gotten this style down as well as i can. probably means it's time for a shift in style. but i'm not ready yet. my Patreon supporters get to download the high-res file. if you're interested, click the bright orange button on the top right of the page OR head to patreon.com/pengpengart.
