Sketchy Sketches

Aw! That's the BEST Catoblepas like EVER!

I was thinking of starting to draw up a chart of the heirarchy of hell....be neat to get a bunch of people in on that....

GREAT monsters, as usual!

Oh, like Dante's hell? That would be a blast and a half!

Thanks Steve!

That last dude is the most amazing thing ever. EVER.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 17th, 2011 04:05 am (UTC)
Thanks, we just can't compete with the Medieval imagination.
Earl Grey Warden J.croaky on January 17th, 2011 04:26 am (UTC)
er, right account yes
True that, although you did a mighty fine job putting it on paper! :D

These are gorgeous! Seeing your new art always makes the days that preceded your latest offering seem grey in retrospect.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 17th, 2011 04:09 am (UTC)
Well, they are grey, we do live in Vancouver.

These are awesome! I love Buer especially, with a face like a lion mask and wicked cool blue tattoo-designs. Very cool <3
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 17th, 2011 04:10 am (UTC)
Thanks, yeah, I was thinking of getting that tattoo on my face, but thought better of it.

Thanks Emily!I think these monsters would be kicked out of any club more making trouble, they're the misfits of monsterdom.
seanvdmseanvdm on January 17th, 2011 06:37 am (UTC)
gorgeous! That demon reminds me of a Tibetan mask I bought in Nepal... my favourite kind of demon! I adore the female barbarian's cat buckle and her freckled shoulders and chest!
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 18th, 2011 03:35 am (UTC)
Thanks, I'm all about the freckly shoulders.

What a strange and colourful fantasy world. I love it!
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 18th, 2011 03:40 am (UTC)
Thanks! We should only visit fantasy worlds that are strange and colourful :)
Kinnareekinaree on January 17th, 2011 06:47 am (UTC)
Holy shite! I totally dig these!!!
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 18th, 2011 03:41 am (UTC)
Thank you!
Joe Crowjoecrow on January 17th, 2011 07:06 am (UTC)
That Buer image is fucking ace. You oughtta do the rest of the Goetic demons. I would pay cashy money for a book of those dudes.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 18th, 2011 03:44 am (UTC)
That's a great idea... about the Goetic demons AND the cash money ;)

From now on I shall only write this on your LJ, since I have nothing left to say:

Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 18th, 2011 03:45 am (UTC)
Thanks, but if I ever read it upside down it would read "MOM".

alright alright I see
so how about...


I think that's safe

You've killed me T-Diddy. I ain't posting sketchbook stuff no more. I thought it was just supposed to be for fun and you keep carpet bombing the scene with this hand of god stuff. Anyways, the description of "Chinchevache" slays me (and hey, there's a pretty drawing, too), and I always want to ball your barbarian chicks (provided I'm allowed a good sprinting distance). I don't know how she'd take it, but this one reminds me of Marly Zarcone.
Summarily, all this would make Goya lactate. You maintain your perch upon the jewel encrusted e-z boy of casual genius, and I scurry-scutter out, out, Out.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 18th, 2011 03:58 am (UTC)
Ha! James your comments have the poetic verve of H.L. Mencken and the raw intensity of Hunter S. Thompson. Brilliant!

I also love how you give a comment by threatening never to draw again, I sure hope that is a empty threat, because you have fans my friend.
James Lloydpuddingsock on January 18th, 2011 05:25 am (UTC)
Never said nothin' about not drawing again. Posting's another matter. What-- you think you have that kind of power over me? You ARE something special.
"H.L. Mencken"; izzat the bank that fucked everyone over? Okay!
Brian Evinouevinou_art on January 17th, 2011 03:44 pm (UTC)
BLARGH! These are wicked, those top two kill me though. Beautiful stuff as always!
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 19th, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
Thanks! And thanks for saying "wicked" it makes me feel proud to be a Canadian.
Robin Bougiebougieman on January 17th, 2011 04:13 pm (UTC)
I love these! There were some here I hadn't even seen yet! *so proud*
tony_clifftony_cliff on January 17th, 2011 08:15 pm (UTC)
I feel like if I say, "Ahhhh, I love your barbarian lady", that discounts your other work, which not what I'm trying to communicate here. But come on, you gave her a kitty-face belt buckle. So great.
tony_clifftony_cliff on January 17th, 2011 08:17 pm (UTC)
Effing hell, my new years' resolution is to figure out how to make my compliments actually sound like compliments. Stupid WORDS.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 19th, 2011 02:25 am (UTC)
Oh Tony, your compliments always sound like compliments and speaking of compliments, thanks for the great compliments.
susan_fergusonsusan_ferguson on January 17th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
Wow, just wow.
As I mentioned on Robin's Facebook page, mere words are not adequate to describe your talents. Also I like the curly-cue penis on the catoblepas.
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 19th, 2011 02:28 am (UTC)
Re: Wow, just wow.
Hoo-ray, Susan's on LJ!
eyepatchmcgeeeyepatchmcgee on January 17th, 2011 11:54 pm (UTC)
Goddamn lady, I love these! I am having a hard time picking a favorite so I will just go with ALL OF THEM
Rebecca Dartr_dart on January 19th, 2011 02:28 am (UTC)
Oh, Puh-shaw! You're a sweetheart!
Scott Faulknerinkboy on January 20th, 2011 05:19 pm (UTC)
Love your take on the Catoblepas - I usually see them depicted with skinny necks. Those horns are something else!

I think youve made some truly interesting points. Not too many people would actually think about this the way you just did. Im really impressed that theres so much about this subject thats been uncovered and you did it so well, with so much class. Good one you, man! Really great stuff here.
(Anonymous) on February 22nd, 2011 12:00 am (UTC)
Very nice!
I have to say I'm very impressed with your work. I love the whimsy and fluidity of your figures, and unlike many fantasy/genre/heroic illustrators, you use color sparingly yet effectively. Me likee. I wish you a lot of luck in your pursuits, and I completely believe that a woman is capable of creating such lavish, lush, exotic, earthy, ribald and real artwork.

I'm adding you to my friend list, and hopefully you will see a flicker of merit in my journal and do the same.

Rebecca Dartr_dart on February 22nd, 2011 02:29 am (UTC)
Re: Very nice!
Thank you, Windupguy! Your kind words are like a warm, fuzzy sweater in a winter of self doubt... and you used the word ribald, extra Brownie points for that one.

Adding to friends list :)
Hey :) I found your art via a link from Twitter and enjoyed wandering through the archives, checking out all the pretties. Adding so I can get further updates.
Thanks for posting such interesting art!
lomainch on April 10th, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
Your blog looks nice, even so it would be far better if you’ll be able to use lighter colors too as a professional design. This will make sure that a lot more readers come to check it out.Informative post by the way!

Happy Birthday!
Hope you had a great one, Rebecca!
(Anonymous) on May 5th, 2011 07:43 pm (UTC)
I've been looking at this for weeks, and I only just noticed the excellent Cat Face belt buckle on the warrior babe!

Your work/name should be more famous - only by your own definitions, of course.

Please consider an anthology/graphic novel/book. I'd pre-order one myself.

Rebecca Dartr_dart on May 6th, 2011 04:44 am (UTC)
Thanks Chris!

I'm actually working on a sketchbook/ art book right now that should be coming out in the early Fall. I'll be sure to post it here when that will be available.
