Been working on a series of self portraits for my Illustration class. We had to do all of them with traditional media rather than digital, which was a challenge at first (I was a little rusty even with my sketchbook), but it turned out to be a lot of fun! And now I remember how much I love watercolor (and ink wash). It’s good to work with media you’re unused to or unfamiliar with to shake things up and expand your skill set, so this is definitely a good start to school this year.
Working on my Beauty and the Beast story a bit and this rough sketch turned into a not-sketch. Not happy with the drawing bit of this but it was a fun exercise in lighting and practice with this brush, which I like a lot (though I’m slipping into bad old blur-esque habits)
Eli and Romana, who is the story’s equivalent of Gaston. (Eli is the equivalent of the Bimbettes and her man du jour).
I know there’s still a chance for Studio Ghibli to make feature films in the future, but it still broke my heart. :( Here’s a little tribute to you, Hayao, and all your wonderful animators and storytellers.
Sansa was my favorite thing about last night’s episode of Game of Thrones for like a million different reasons and I’m probably gonna essay all my thoughts about it, but for now I just had to draw her and that dress, the end.
Been working on a pitch and took forever to get even these rough designs down ughhh
I know they look more finalized, but the characters were drawn in different styles at different times, so I need to merge the two styles into something between semi-realistic and animation-friendly. Also, the lead character (pink half-hawk girl) looks too much like a space ranger in this outfit; I like her stripes and color scheme (and the hair is definitely staying), but she needs a more organic, summer kid kinda look.
But even so, it’s nice to have something to go off of. I’ve always wanted to design a character with a hot pink half-hawk :)
