cover to cover assignment for Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. all i really wanted to do was draw a fairy....b/c i haven't drawn one for about a decade. i took a break from my painful-digital-intense-detail style and actually enjoyed working on this. i was thinking about toulouse lautrec, japanese printmaking, and mucha...but it ended up extremely heavy on mucha. oh well.
I have finished illustrating my first ebook! Written by Timothy Nies, "The Bread to Ozzy" is now available on the ibook store. Please show your support and give it a try! Fun young adult reading. Thanks guys!
'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]
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.
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.
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.
