'In a distant land, iron fisted rulers govern an oppressed city. The royal family has banished the use of magic all but to themselves, the small folk are in uproar and only the king's rebellious son stands in the way of a Kingdom on the brink of war'

Three character designs I'm working on for my college project, centered around a witch, a prince and a princess. You can see a few other bits for this on my tumblr [link]

art and characters belong to me.

The King. The Chosen One. The Brightest Witch of her Age.

And to think this is how they started out? Well, in my head anyway.

A bit late to the party, but this is my send off to a big chunk of my childhood. Course, that doesn't mean there won't be any more Harry Potter art ;)

Thank goodness for trees that can bear heavy weight!

She's a big girl. I'd say about a 10ft wing span. Inspired by all those cranky, ragged, old birds in movies and books, or the hag that lives in the middle of the swamp. Got the picture? that's her ;)

Prints will be available through me (Check [link] for sizes and prices. She's roughly 5x15)

[ History/Background ]
“You can always give, but you cannot always take what you want.”

Kin lived in a peaceful mountain along with his clan. He was educated to be a great trickster, he thought to do shape-shifting and using scrotum for many purposes. His parents also said that their ancestor was an evil Fox deity from China, he was told that Tanuki are less clever, less dignified, and less adroit than Fox.

As the time passed, the Tanuki clan got closer and closer to humans. They often went downhill and fed by humans. They almost forgot the bad side of Tanuki, who used to be a great trickster back then, and their fate to deceive humans. Humans thought that Tanuki were cute, so that they made a Tanuki mascot. The comical mascot symbolized prosperity and good luck with money, it often placed in front of bars or kiosks (equivalent of Maneki Neko). Kin really hated the human-made mascot. The mascot humans made had big duped eyes, bewilderment face, and a silly big tummy. He thought that it was a disgrace of Tanuki clan.

It all changed when the humans planed to deforesting the mountain, in order to enlarge their city. The dull-powered Tanuki clan didn’t get any chance to oppose the humans, so that they lost their home, and their lifes.

OKAY I KNOW IT WAS NONSENSE /SLAP

[ How and when they did they start living in the temple? ]
Kin was the only survivor. He lost his home and family, with hatred remains. Even so, he didn’t manage to take revenge upon humans. He thought that it wouldn’t fruit anything for him and his family. But it didn’t vanish his hatred, he still loathes humans. He tried to find the long kinship which connects Tanuki and Fox. He traveled from temple to temple, in order to find the ancestor. As he stumbled upon Oyaki-Kai and met the Fox, he hoped that this temple would be his last stop.

[ Additional Details ]
– For him, tricking humans is more fun than taking revenge on them
– Doesn’t grow tail in human form
– Gains stronger powers in fullmoon nights
– Nocturnal, stays in Tanuki form during day and in human form during night
– He respects Ringo –especially for her being a Fox, but her flat chest just so :iconshadowedplz: /SLAP’D
– Don't you ever receive any food or money from him, they may be fake fff

Redo of old piece that I couldn't use in my portfolio because it was the MOST derivative thing I'd ever done, ever probably! See: Lisbeth Zwerger. I luff her. I felt like I needed something in this general color range, so now it's just a plagiarism of ME, which is very permitted. Watercolor and digital.

Watercolor painting, enhanced digitally (tiptaptaptap Enhance! taptaptipclack Enhance!), for my Independent Study. Which is about placing text in a storybook image for children. I initially planned to write the story, too, but Time Constraints being What They Are, I just decided on a little Harris Burdick juju.

A speed painting for Conceptart.org's character of the week challenge. The theme was "Icarus", but it had to be a new take on the original myth. I went with the idea of Icarus being a moth, who battered himself against a lamp light too long, singeing his wings and knocking himself out.

Covering an area of about 14 square kilometers, statues - human figures - are stationed along the ocean floor and provide shelter to fish, algae and coral, among other underwater organisms. Throughout the years, they have deteriorated and been heavily modified by the swirling ocean water, but the semblance of humanity still present in their faces is nothing short of remarkable.

They have become a tourist attraction in recent years, but very recently the government has had to intervene and restrict human presence in the area - the heavy daily ammount of tourist groups and divers, particularly during the Summer months, was starting to stress coral reef and affecting the local wildlife.


As the night wore on, so did my patience and time to colour these. The water reflections are actually a recent adition, suggested by ~thanoodles. Wise girl, she is.

Also for A Handful of Wonders.

Earlier this year, I had a project in school which consisted in creating 160 characters - 16 of each one of 10 different concepts.

The Messenger ; The Lover ; The Authority ; The Carer ; The Creator ; The Destroyer; The Seller ; The Sportsperson ; The Entertainer ; The Traveler.

I made each of of these into a little book, the ones you see pictured above.

I will be posting these daily on my Tumblr so, if you're not following and would be interested, go ahead! I already have a few characters up, so please take a look.

Part of the "True Self" project - [link]

I really like this one. I think I managed to do something really different from what I usually do, both in composition and mood.

If you're the contemplated person - I hope you dig. And I hope the character looks NOTHING like you, because that way, it's more interesting.
