I did these for a personal swap. 

This one is for a personal swap I'm doing with someone from a different site.  We both share a love of monstrous creatures & Nosferatu in specific!

It's all color pencil & ebony pencil.  I kinda wanted to add some black ink to it, but I'm afraid to screw it up because I don't have the steadiest hand.  What do you guys think?

This a set of two that fit together as one scene. 

They are supposed to be a vintage 20's Raccoon couple at the beach. 

I've been kind of all over the place with my technique and style.  I wonder if I'll ever "settle" into something.
Anyway, these are my ATCs for the January ongoing swap:













Well, that's it!  I had a lot of fun this month!
Thanks for looking!

I love your cat, and your trees - and the rest of them are great, too. You got lots of talent, and I'm sure you will find your own style in time.

I can't believe this only got one comment so far! These are awesome! So many of them catch my eye, and I can still tell they were all done by the same person. I wouldn't worry about falling into a style so much. That happens on its own. Just keep on creating what makes you happy. Smiley

I especially love the vintage raccoons and the frog, I can't tell which are my favorite, I'm pretty sure I need both. lol The Nosferatu makes me smile! While menacing there's something funny about him, like maybe he has a sense of humor! Then the Yoda is perfectly huggable as well. They're all great!!

If there was a patch for ATC addiction, I would probably try to decorate it and mail it to someone.
