Decided to make a print size version of one of the concept drawings from this week. I really like how intense it is and I constantly imagine it as the front cover for an artbook or something haha I think it will work well as a promotional piece for now and the future!
Annie Mei trick-and-treating in a fun pin-up picture ! It's nice to take a break from the more serious side of illustrations to do a playful one I've been really into Grease again for the first time in 12 years and it's so addicting and lively and full of energy and the fashion of that movie inspired Annie's look here.
As always, an appearance from Annie is my way of showing my appreciation to all of you watching me! I just recently hit 39k watchers and those numbers never cease to blow me away. Being my dA mascot, Annie sure has brought me a lot of luck You can download the image for a wallpaper size as a small showing of my thanks and I hope everyone has a fun, happy and safe Halloween!
Ok I can't hold onto this picture anymore! It's been done for two days now and I held onto it just so I can make a youtube video and a brand new original song to go with it. The videos will be about my shading technique, the first part being a timelapse of me preparing my shade layer. The final image ended up being quite different in colors used and in the face.
If you have any ideas of what else you'd like to see me do in GIMP, let me know!
This is a new illustration for a game concept I did my Junior year of college, "The Floor is Lava" which was a group project for "Game Asset" for Nick Jainchigg, with Hannah Lawler and Orissa Jenkins. I was on character development and had a lot of fun creating designs that fit my team's model; for instance the lava monster began as a horrific beast with a skull for a face without eye sockets, massive horns, and was wrapped in chains while on fire.
You never know what you'll end up with when you work with others
Special thanks to ~KaiCarpenter for doing a one on one with me, and to Francis Boncales and Jennifer Hou for critiques.
