Beach sketches… That have nothing to do with the beach.

A few practice sketches of woman with varying ethnicities. I used many photo references, sometimes more than one per face.
These are not meant to be depictions of any ethnicity as a whole, but they are an attempt on my part to better understand broad categories of face physiology.
Hopefully I’ll get around to doing similar practice with male faces too.

Silas wearing armor! Probably not the final design. Also, more of Mia’s later hair cut, which is SUPER fun to draw!

A pivotal moment in Discretional Valor in which Silas must slay a very ancient and powerful mimic.

A quick painting of Sir Vladimir’s face. Still working out some problems with his hair… but I feel like his age looks a more accurate than some of my previous drawings. He’s supposed to be 25.I draw him so often with his helmet on that I have more consistency problems with him than some of the other characters!

Quickly colored sketch of Opal. I rely on her casual/sporty outfit a bit too heavily… I really need to settle on a design for her stealth garb, and her “upgraded” combat outfit from later in the story.
Trying to manage this pose was difficult enough though. Her other outfits are all a lot more detailed.

A sketch of our cat, Mr. Darcy!
He has extra short fur because he’s a Cornish Rex.

The final version of the Yuna painting I’ve put countless hours into. Yuna is definitely one of my favorites among all the Final Fantasy heroines.

Trying out Clip Studio Paint… I’ve never drawn Yuna before, so I thought I’d give her a try! I should finish this later…*edit - an updated WIP… still more work to go!

A colored version of the Curly Brace drawing from earlier. I tried using the Greyscale=>Color Layer in Photoshop to do this. I still feel a little uncomfortable about this method. Some of my favorite artists, like Cushart, use this method, but it still makes me uneasy. There’s something a bit unnatural about not having direct control of both color and shade when you are working a piece.
Also I tried to give Curly a bit of SSS glow… maybe thats a little weird when she’s a robot that may or may not have a blood-like substance beneath her white skin?

Some unfinished Cave Story sketches. I’m still trying to successfully complete the “Hell” run for the first time on the 3DS eShop version of the game. I’ve gotten as far as the third form of the final boss. Maybe tonight I’ll succeed… It’s such a great game!

He drew me a sweet Lapras, but I turned his Omastar into a spiral monster lol whoops. 8D;;;

My friend Kiriska made me a super cool Omastar painting in trade for a Lapras! He really looks like a Kaiju, I love it!

I’m still on a bit of a LEGO kick. I downloaded the LEGO Digital Designer software from their website, and tried building a mech that might fit with the Ice Planet 2002 theme.

The Ice Planet 2002 Blizzard Baron LEGO Set was probably my all time favorite. This little white haired dude with his orange transparent chainsaw was always the hero when I used to have enormous battles across my bedroom with Blacktrons, M-Trons, and Explorians.
I firmly believe that the best LEGOs are the ones that have no IP associated with them. Whether you use the parts to build something unique, or build according to the instructions, there is no real story given to you once you make a generic set. The possibilities are endless!
