I feel like Tinkerbell sometimes, only replace "clap to keep her alive" with "comment on my tweets and posts".  
Snow White by tragicrabbit07
Snow White
Recently I've been re-watching all of the old Disney movies in order, and I wanted to do a series of character drawings to go with them.  I never liked snow white as a kid, but watching it again as an adult it's not terrible.  It's the first one so obviously they are still learning what they are doing and it's a touch rough in spots.

As for the drawing,  the puff sleeves were a lot of fun to draw, and it was nice using a different color pallet than I usually go for.  My tablet skills are still too rusty to do the line art digitally, so I have been hand inking and then scanning, cleaning up and coloring.  The lines ended up a bit thicker than I generally like but part of that was using a cheap paper that caused some bleed.  Now I know better for next time :)
Stone Lady Hand Painted Cameo by tragicrabbit07
Stone Lady Hand Painted Cameo
I started making these about 6 months ago and finally have a good standardized way of doing it.  The cameo is made from polymer clay, then painted with acrylics.  This lady has about 8 layers of paint on her, building up from a stone grey color to not-quite-white.  Painting it this way, I end up with a weathered look and the image really pops.  Funny enough I learned this painting technique painting about 200 tiny goblins for my old Warhammer tabletop army.  This one was the first I did that I was really happy with.

She’s also for sale at my Etsy store, so ya know.
Fireworks v3 by tragicrabbit07
Fireworks v3
So awhile ago I had the idea to go back and redraw some old pictures for fun.  It took me a long time to get around to it, but this is the first of 8 redrawn pieces.  My plan is to do one per year, redrawing whatever I considered to be the WORST drawing of that particular year.  I already redrew this piece before, hence the v3 next to it.  It only took me a decade to figure out how to do fireworks semi-properly :p

Anyway, these two are characters from an old comic I did with a friend back in high school.  It was basically a cheap X-men knockoff with the occasional clever joke.  At this point I have "fixed" this drawing as much as I can while keeping the character designs recognizable.

The original can be found here for the curious:…

Second, somehow worse attempt can be found here:…
I appear to have forgotten how to tablet -_-;
