I like to add graphic elements to these sorts of studies (like the ghosts and the heart), since it gives me a chance to experiment on a basically finished painting that I'm not afraid to ruin.
I've had a few wholesale clients request dog stickers, so I've been playing around with a few different dog breeds. I did a Great Dane and a Corgi a few months ago, and I've had this idea for a six-legged flying Doxie for a while now. It was so fun to bring it to life. I wanted to experiment with unnatural fantasy colors and didn't realize until I was finished that I colored her exactly like my favorite Wuzzle.
And finally, a little study of a bat with a flower. I spend so much of my time drawing cats, I want to get the hang of other animals, too. Bats have a very interesting anatomy, so this was a really fun study to do.
