Nice smile. Looks very contented. :-)
Jeez, this and the dog sketches below are great!Nice going!
Hey Jenny,I came across your blog following various links. I LOVE your sketches. I recently started on the Cintiq at work and was wondering what software you use to do most of your sketching. Keep posting!!!---Josh
Great work!... i love the expression on the dog of "nervous time"...Salud!!!!
Beautiful. Wish this comment box would allow for a sketch response.
What wonderful lines throughout.
courageous story artist look hehe

You really should be designing movie posters, Jenny. You would give today's "stars" both a classical and classy facelift!Your beautiful linework on a two, maybe three-color one-sheet.I'd collect em!B
siiigh. I love this blog.
Okay, this may not be a place to mention it but...I love your segment in Scrambled Ink and was looking around to see where I could find more of your work when I saw IMDb list you as story artist for "How to Train Your Dragon".I'm not asking for a sneak peak of the movie, but was wondering if any Nordic lass sketches or Valkyries may appear on this blog?
You lot are all lovely to leave such kind comments. Thanks!Josh--I used Photoshop, mostly; I also draw on an HP tablet with Sketchbook. Alex-yes, I did work on "Dragon"-but any drawings I did on that will have to wait till after the film's released(if then). It all belongs to the studio and it's a little over a year or so away from being in theaters. On the other hand I might well do a viking--I have viking horses and not all viking girls are alike, are they? ; )I can tell you that all the character designs for that film, by Nico Martlet, are utterly stunning.
Yeah, I was looking for Viking inspired, not "Dragon" specific. I know that work is owned by the studio, and burried under a heap of NDA's or whatever your industry uses for protection. Of course it's hard to separate ownership at times, I know in the high tech industries when you're salaried, pretty much all ideas belong to your employer if in the least related to your work with them.I like the original art in the Dragon books, very messy and childish, but great fun. The stories are great too, we blasted through all volumes so far with my kids. I think our kids may be too old to enjoy the movie by the time it comes out, but there's no telling. I'll probably see it though.
I hope I didn't come off too didactic, Alex--clearly you know the whole score with these things. : )It's funny...I loved drawing those characters-thing is, I like them so much and as usual drew them enough in my own style that the lines can blur sometimes...that is, I'd be afraid of unconsciously posting a sketch that could be misconstrued as being from the actual film. You get it--but all it'd take is for someone to see a viking-like drawing, see my IMDB credit and then intentionally or not disseminate my work as if it's an example from the film. It sounds paranoid, but oh, man--the places some of my original work have wound up... There's just no telling what people will do with one's stuff on blogs, both words and pictures. I've found whole sites that rip from this and friends' blogs. Not much one can do. Anyway, it makes one wary.
Being wary is better than ending up in trouble. Just thinking back to a movies "making of" I watched the other day, the original concept art covered a very wide base. You're right, even if you were to draw something straight out of Asterix it could still be misconstrued...'nuff said. :-)
you have such a good flow in your sketches!
I love your work!
lovely work you have here - will be back for more!
Hey is that Kendelle? Gorgeous sketch!! Happy New year, Jenny!
I thought that looked like Kendelle too. Happy New Year, Jenny!!!
This is a gorgeous blog Jenny!~ Hobo
Just love your drawings.
Fun drawings, a lot of life in all of these!!
I simply love these types of illustrations, simple, and expressive, full of life, and emotion. Really have a talent there. I only wish that I could offer you some gratuitous amount of cash for these, but sadly i am but a lowly student. So until I have it I shall give you a bit of praise here and there if thats alright. :)
