School's been one big stress mess. I've had zero time to post anything lately and really wanted to make something for myself.

Something I'm working on at the moment.

Visual art tribes

I don't usually do memes, but it's been cool seeing what others have been inspired by, and was a good exercise in scrounging around my inspiration folder finding what I felt had a direct impact on my visual style.

Phew, all done!

Finally! This took a good amount of the summer through a bit of trial and error, but I learned a pretty good deal.

The original idea was to put a modern spin on strategy rpgs like Final Fantasy Tactics where you have the male/female counterparts of healers, damage dealers, and magic users that tend to be situated in a medieval period. Years and years after its release Tactics is still easily one of my most favorites- from the challenge of creating the ultimate party to the pixel art to the concept art to the crazy convoluted story line, it was a rare and solid game.

Will have to put it on the backburner for now that school is starting up in only 2 weeks (yikes), but I definitely plan on doing more- environments, bad guys, and props.

From today at a sketchgroup, I'm trying to get out and meet other like-minded artists in this town, trying to stay inspired and play with ideas and possibly do something video game related for gradshow next year.

Also trying to get better at watercolor, grabbed a ton of books from the library to try and figure it out on my own. Unfortunately there aren't many good books on illustrating with watercolor, but things like learning how interpret color and mix properly has been a big help.

finals stuff

Final assignments these past two weeks- needless to say it's been super intense with lots of long hours and a good amount of whining, but I'm happy with the results. One more week to go, so excited to be free and do whatever!

Character for a simple flash assignment where I got super absorbed and worked on for a couple days. I'm almost sad it's over.

Needs work, but my first real stab at natural media illustration.

a bunch of stuff

I love drawing at Guu, I drew there earlier when I was building my portfolio, I think I may have thrown a few in. There's so much energy everywhere, everyone's shouting in Japanese and all the food in the skillets are on fire. I kinda wish they'd taken longer to serve my food!

Sketches for character design assignment, owls are pretty darn cute.

Sharing the same life drawing space as fine arts kids

I've been told my life drawing is wild, so I've been working harder at getting at least a little structure and proportion in there- skating the page is immensely gratifying.
