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!

Trade with my friend lithostyle!
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!

For anyone who hasn’t played Bravely Default, this is a teaser image.
Do not click on the link unless you want to have a big part of the game spoiled for you!
There wasn’t a lot of work in the artbook dedicated to this moment in the game, so I tried to fill in details using screencaps and gameplay videos as references.

I gathered up some of my old LEGO sets from my Mom’s house this weekend and I was glad to see these gems among piles of Blacktron, M-Tron, and Explorian sets.
I’m thinking of building something more modern from these space sets sometime… So much nostalgia!

Decided to finish this piece once and for all. I have mixed feelings about the final result… I like a lot of the colors, but I just don’t feel like I was able to meld the elements of this scene together well enough.Ugh… overly ambitious projects.

2-hour portrait of Olivia Wilde from Tron Legacy. My computer is back in business, so it’s time to start warming up again with one of my fallbacks: beautiful women with bobs and bangs.

I really like cats, and I really like Grumpy Cat. So I sketched him.It was good practice but I frowned a lot while working on it.

A scene in an early chapter from Discretional Valor in which Sigfried makes some really awful religiously charged racist comments about Mia in an effort to bully Silas at her expense. Sigfried is Silas’ rival for much of the story, and he’s got a lot of social problems that are the result of some poor parenting from his highly prejudiced father from the nobility.

Olivia and Hotspur are two Pesookan characters (analogous to a real-world Indian ethnicity) in Discretional Valor who work as Brigade Knights. I draw Hotspur often with his red helmet and armor on, but I’ve rarely drawn pictures of Olivia. I need to draw them more often, because I’m not yet satisfied with their face physiology.
