Fresh start gallery. No CSS because it's not like I ever updated my first page in the first place and I don't really like putting everything into endless spoilers anyways.

More recent work includes...

A commission for Ben! (Achromatic)


The mouth animates too!
Spoiler:




Sketch of my current Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate character.

Hay, I'll drop a comment! :D It's been awhile since I've seen your work!

Augh, I love the coloring choice you did for your first piece! Your sketch is also fantastic! I'm a fan of your style and the combination of that texture from the brushstrokes.

I don't want to write a whole big crit just because sketches are harder for me to comment on because it's at a starting stage. I don't feel like it would be fair aha sketching looks different for everyone - but I love the linework so far. The commission has some balance issue with the shoulders, but other than that, I find it super charming! The design really looks like a Pokemon character but has your style fused with it.

Lovely work, yo!

Thanks for the comments Anastasia. : )

Oh yeah, since we've been mentioning photography a lot recently, I guess I'd share some images I've taken. On the rare occasion I go outdoors

I spent far too long messing about with this is pyxel edit, photoshop, and then adobe premiere, just starting out from starbound items then trying to figure out the lighting programs on each, and then having fun exporting with gif settings.



The basic set up.



Lighting with photoshop filter into about 5 images and fading between them.


endless loop
4 color gif setting

Then a try at adobe premier. I tried to do it in this because I could (a little complicatedly) layer gifs over things, and also do lighting. Turns out their lighting system is kinda complicated and I kept messing things up. Being able to track the lights is handy though.



I said before in discord, it might be easier to learn how to use a game engine if I ever wanted to mock something up like this in the future.

    I used Pyxel Edit!

    I guess I have a speed paint of it to show too, if you're interested in how the program works.

    Have a Nia sketch, because I had a random idea of her in pigtails and it was a very cute thought.

    These are actually quite embarrassingly old and very wonky from my beginning of college, but I was reminded of them because of a friend so I thought I would share! They're so old, they're from when I was still using Paint Tool Sai. (Might be 4 years ago now?)
    This is from the class I did, Illustration of Children's Books! I wanted to have a story about how to properly handle a cat. In the end, I liked very few of the finished pages, but there were some cute and more freeing sketches that came from it.

    Concept sketches:

    Spoiler:








    Layout:
    Spoiler:
    left to right, up and down. It's very not clear (because I sucked) but it's getting a new cat, cat gets on the table to get water, boy yells and tries to grab the cat and gets clawed, dad explains it's not the cat's fault, you need to be patient and let the cat come to you.



    The only final images I care to show ;p

      Your choice of colors is super impressive. Do you have a book or blog you recommend or where did you learn that? Very nice!

      I'm sorry I didn't see this till now!

      Unfortunately I don't have a specific technique or system I use to pick colors, I've just learned color theory which can be taught in a number of ways and paid attention to other artworks with colors I enjoy.


      And for what I came here, a stray sprite coming your way.


      This is a pixel over of the official art, but colored a bit differently and brighter. I usually don't do pixels this large, or use this many colors with heavy AA, but I gave it a go.

      Oh yes! As well, here is work I did for my friend angie! (colours)



      THIS next dump, is from a paid project. It been months of no contact and the game it was going to be for seems to have been taken off the development roster, so I thought I'd finally show them. So, if these things seem a little odd given my tastes, it's because it's for someone else's vision. (I also didn't sign an NDA, I was just trying to respectful and wait for release, but it seems...)

      Since it seems the story for the big bang didn't getting ended up posted, I'll put up the artwork here that I did for it. The work in progress in which I based it on is in this thread under Negrek.

      why is not one giving you some love, this is astounding

      I love the pixel over and you use your own color palette. It's vibrant and fun! If I were to suggest anything, it would maybe be introducing some purple hue, weather its an outline color or shade color. I kinda wanna see a darker magenta or purple for parts of the legs?Just because there's a lot of pink! Other than that, I think you did a great job!
      And for the latest piece, I'm a fan of the textures you compiled. c:

      And for the Tsarenna, something like this? It does add some better definition.
