Daily Character #4

Heheh...not quite as daily, but I got a job and am moving out to Atl, so give me a break! I was fond of how she came out, the dreamcatcher witch! I'll be coloring her later~

Daily character #3

Gypsy woman! She was my favorite one to draw from the blitz, and a ton of fun to color! :D

Daily Character #2

This was meant for yesterday, but I seemed to have missed it by about an hour. Oh well. This guy is an illusionist; he throws a special stone into the hoop that he's holding to cast his illusions; the ropes carry the illusion and animates them. The illusions usually consist of many-headed beasts, but the images vary depending on the kind of stone he uses. It would be fun to play around with him more. I'll post the first picture of him to show where he came from- that one I DID draw last night.

Carnelian pt. 2

Hello all! I needed to finish posting the rest of the book; it's all here except for one spread (the reveal of the castle) that needs to be redone. Enjoy!

Oh wordless narratives. So much fun, but yet so difficult. Hopefully, the reader can get the overall gist of it; if anyone feels like putting the effort into it, perhaps they can extract something deeper.

Daily character!

I'm going to attempt to do a daily thing where I color a character sketch (or three) a day. Here is the first one!

Summer Sketches!!

Have an art, or 13.

WORLD'S BEST DAD. A character design challenge where we had to incorporate an unusual animal/human mix.
Kurai, my old character from like, 10 years ago that I decided to redraw.

This is a character from a video game I really wish I could make; the game is basically you, alone, versus a world that desperately wants you dead.

Character design blitz! I need to color some of these:

I was drawing objects around my room as characters: my lamp is the drummer, the speakers are that ninja lady, and I'm not sure what the fat monster is...

What an unfortunate creature.

I need to finish this one:
And a character for my Drew!

When I get my hard drive hooked up to my computer, I will post the second of the Lucas book! For now, I hope you enjoy these!

Lucas and Adele

Hi all!

I should have updated ages ago! I'll do a new sketch post soon, but at least for now, I can upload some pages from the wordless narrative I completed for my thesis! It is a book about a boy who needs to rescue his sister from her 'pet'/guardian tiger who is stealing her vitality and her light. It's mostly a surreal trip, and was a ton of fun to work on! This is the first half of the book:

Not Dead

I promise I'm not dead! I've been working on a wordless book, I will post concept/finished pieces when it's all done! Don't go anywhere!! In the meantime, have this.

Hello all! I haven't updated in a while; oops. However, as a result, there is a ton of stuff I have to show from my two classes from last quarter!

First up! From my Professional Practices class, I did 4 illustrations that I combined into a set of 4 postcards. They merge into a single image when aligned together.

These were two book cover illos for Japanese folktales: Urashima Taro and The Crane Wife:

And The Pitch is the class that consumed most of my time this quarter; we had to spend 10 weeks developing a Pitch for Nancy Spears, marketing executive at Warner Bros. My Pitch was Norovirus, a story of a computer virus who gains sentience and escapes from the company who created her to the human world. Here are some keyframe illustrations from that show!

Nashi card

I forgot to upload this when I finished it! Oops! This is going to be a series of 4 different postcards, each centering on a fruit character: in the middle of all 4 cards will be my logo inside of a flower.

Hello all!

After my wonderful trip from Japan (of which the massive update from the trip is still in my drafts), we had a not-so-wonderful project looming over all of our heads! After a couple of all-nighters and a lot of willpower, I finished my first ever original mini-comic! I hope you all like it, I worked really hard! I'm going to tone it and submit it to the SEQA travel anthology; I hope it gets in!

The comic is about two children in the Tokyo Museum: Aoki and Aiden. Aoki finds a hard time relating to her fellow students; she doesn't speak much, so she has trouble making friends. Aiden is an American boy that traveled with his mom for one of her business trips. He doesn't know anyone, but he is very outgoing and adventurous. However, because he can't actually speak any Japanese, he can't make any friends either. The two eventually run into each other and together, with the help from their toys, Mr. Claw and Saba-kun, they communicate and play with one another...without needing to say a word.
