Well I've been completely enjoying myself with the ATC's as of late Smiley So I figured it was time for another post of them.
First was a fancy puppy I made for Jillybeans. It has a needle felted mustache and glittery 3-D monocle :3

Then was a close up of a diver with the reflection of the ocean around them visible in their goggles. The reflection is water color and the person is colored pencil.

I love the legend of the Nessie Smiley So this was a lot of fun for me to draw.

This was the Y card for a swappers ABC set. I rather like how she came out Smiley

This card was for an owl theme and it got me a little choked up when I was making it. That carved heart with an owl holds speical meaning for me.

This little scorpion was based on a plushie I saw and was just to cute and to fitting not to make the focal point of this Scorpio ATC.

This one was done for a plus sized beauty theme. I tried to make it true to life and sexy but still tasteful and fun.

IT'S A FOX... do I really need to say any more?

This was done for a friend who likes my little pony. I personally love how it came out Cheesy

And my little Roug was the model for this card, so of course I like it Smiley

This was an alien brain hemorrhage. Amazing to look at, not so sure if I would drink it Tongue

Did you know a group of frogs is called a knot?

 This was for a seahorse theme and was done with all colored and cut paper... it was a pain to cut out that tiny little seahorse.

This was for a moss theme and has real moss on it. It was inspired by the Janese garden near my home that has little shrines  in it.

And these are the ATC's I did for a personal swap. I don't know why but I think I do better when I'm doing ATCs for a personal swap vs in the ongoing swap. Odd. But this one was for a Japanese theme... even thought I think the news paper I used was from China and not Japan Tongue

This one has all of my favorite characters from the movie Spirited Away, done in chibi style.

This was for a photography theme and was centered around the dark room. Those are test strips from photos I took years ago for class.

Last is a bit of a movable one. It looks like a simple envelope ATC but then...

You flip the flap up and pull out a bunch of mini ATC's and a little note from me Smiley

Ok I think that's enough for now Smiley

These are so lovely!  They are all done very well & I like your drawing style.  Doing the goggles one in the two different mediums was a nice touch.  The puppy is so cute and funny.  I think my favorite is the tortoise, but there's something about the Japanese one with the koi that I like a lot too.

Thank you La Chapa! I have to say, that despite being grumpy with it at first over my crappy hand writing, I find myself oddly drawn to the Japanese one too.

The plus size one resonates with honesty and beauty. They are all wonderful.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

You have a great style, of course I love my tortoise!  :-)

I love all of these! Especially the ones that were sent to me, but I may be a bit biased.   Cheesy

If you guys didn't notice, you can also see a little peek of her sugar gliders on the film strips! Eeee!! Makes me smile every time! Love love love all of them!!
