Happy Friday! I’ve been teasing the reveal of some new characters on social media, and, well, here they are. They’re still a little rough around the edges, but I just couldn’t wait to share them with you.
Ironwood is an animated series I want to produce someday. If you’re a longtime reader, you might recognize a couple of these guys from concept art that I have worked on since mid-2015. Well, you can ignore all that now. I’ve revised the character designs and settled on a style that I feel is distinct, appealing, and simple enough for animation.
Here’s the main cast: Christie, Ted, Tommy, Vincent, Indigo, Liberty, and Guzman. These seven characters are caught up in a thrilling drama set in the town of Ironwood, Nevada. I hope to tell a realistic story that audiences can relate to, while exploring themes of hope and redemption. There’ll be plenty of action too!
More on this project as it develops!
Hi! It’s me again. I’ve been working on a number of different pieces as well as a bunch of coursework here at BYU. College is hard, but I feel I’m adjusting pretty well–and finding more time to draw to boot!
In between classes, I found the time to whip up these commissions for my good friends Parker and Jack (AKA the2parker and Electric Skyfish). I had a lot of fun on these, trying to make them are simple and clean as possible. I also tested out a new style here–a combination of leaky fountain pen and watercolor brushes that just screams “minimalism”. This will probably be my go-to format for commissions from now on, since it’s less time-consuming than my more refined black lineart and blocks of color.
In case you’re interested, these are $20 apiece and take only a day or two! It’s a steal of a deal. Just message me on social media or email me at email@example.com with the details and a picture of yourself.
Hey hey hey, it’s another commission after who knows how long! Well, not really… this one’s on the house.
I can explain. My family went to Nauvoo, Illinois this summer. If you didn’t know, Nauvoo is full of historical sites important to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, AKA the LDS Church, AKA the Mormon Church. I expected to be bored there, but instead I found myself quite entertained by Nauvoo’s Young Performing Missionaries, volunteers who put on all sorts of shows and paegants detailing the town’s history. They’re all so talented and full of energy, so Nauvoo is basically Mormon Disneyland! Needless to say, I had quite the spiritual experience there.
I also had the chance to see these five YPMs again after they got back from their summer-long mission! They graciously allowed me to sketch them, and I think I captured their likenesses pretty well. Remember, commissions are open, and these rougher ones don’t take too long, so hit me up!
Y'all over here will be getting the artwork normally posted on my blog, dustlander.com! I probably won't be interacting much with the rest of the DeviantArt community, you can PM me or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have something to say!
Commissions are open, but I'm not very fast. You can find me on most forms of social media.
Have a great day!
