More of my Littl Family

Hurro... some more of my family members.

My lion tamer... i guess shes more circus oriented, but i guess why not.Strong woman... she needs lots of work
And my elephant man? or big friendly giant? something, just a big round nice guy.

anyways, i think i will start taking some of these to final now. If anyone else has any suggestions, please feel free to comment.

Side/Freak Show, sculptures, and naked ladies.

The past few weeks I've been listening to a whole lot of Yann Tiersen, and Yann Tiersen reminds me of circuses and sideshows. So i spent the last 2 weeks or so doodling bearded ladies, midget/children, siamese twins, half animal people, contortionists and all sorts of fun things. So after a some sketching, I thought it would be fun to perhaps try and finish a couple of them.
Here are some of my decent sketches:

My cute little announcer/ringmaster girl. I think mostly wanted an excuse to draw a little girl in a frily dress.
My siamese/ conjoined twins that are connected at the hip and hair

And my so far my last completed decent sketch, the bearded lady. Very hairy.

I've had dam holding back ideas the past few weeks, so excuse me if some of my sketches and poses and clothes are lame. I'm hopefully going to work on them more as the days go by.

Now, while I was on complete art hiatus, I copied things out of books during my down time at work

This stuff is from a book on Hadrian. Lots of pretty stuff in that book

and last but not least, when in doubt, i turn to scantily clad women.

hopefully, next post will be more productive.
