 Livejournal isn't doing it for me any more. The site's been losing popularity recently and it's reflected in the response my posts get (very little). I just don't keep up with this place any more, and other websites have done a much better job of keeping my interest.

I've started a Art Tumblr, which has an RSS feed if you don't want to create an account to follow it. I've recently posted a lot of old art on there, so you may have seen most of it. I hope to be more consistent in my posting there since it's pretty hit-and-go, much faster than creating entire dumps. 

I don't know if this will be my last lj post, but I'm not going to go out of my way to post things here.

So, uh, if I don't come around here too much, thanks for encouraging me and keeping me entertained and stuff.

Posting the things I've scanned for Tumblr, so this isn't my entire sketch book or anything. I figured I'd put mini-dumps here and there, since I'm starting to scan more for other sites than this one.

So, I guess if you want to see these things ahead of time, check my Tumblr.

Concepts for Estrella, a character for a children's story in Creative Writing that I'm still trying to figure out. The basic story is that she wants to become a star (literal star), until she learns about the size of the universe and begins to feel insignificant. Then... SOMETHING, some kind of mystical-but-not-really-because-I-don't-want-to-suggest-that force remedies those thoughts.

Like I said, working on it.

Have I ever posted Fritty here? Yes, no? Okay, I consider Fritty to be my first original character, even though I hesitate to use the word "original." He was heavily based off a Pikachu knock-off I made. (Basically Pikachu painted brown with black stripes and given a machine gun and a puffy tail. Yeah, don't ask.) Despite not really developing much, I still love the little guy, as he represents an important step in the evolution of my art. This is my first time drawing him in a very long time, since once I started to stray from my anime-phase, which he is linked to in some ways, I drew him  less and less. So a bit of a redesign here, just in the eyes and markings. He used to be far more cartoony and stupid looking.

Also, another character, this one I assume your recognize, Josephine the Pirate Queen. I've been reworking her to fit a children's story (in poem form) while also being accessible to an adult audience. Or perhaps making her an adult character accessible to the younger audience. I have no idea. Again, Creative Writing is a part of this.

Big difference here is her hair. It's less afro-y when she's younger, and becomes rounder as she gets older. I've always struggled with drawing this character, so I'm glad I sort of have a grasp on her now. My favorite is the sketch of her and the rat - I just love the shading.

What, you thought I'd do a sketch dump and NOT include some LinkxZelda sexy times? Please.

This started off as a rather innocent sequential kiss study (lack of clothes explained by the fact that I just didn't FEEL like it, kay?) but evolved into something less innocent. If you want to read it properly, start in the middle, go down left, right, up, left.

To be honest though, it actually turned into something else: a hand and movement study. When it got to positioning the bodies, I thought about how the hands would move, which is why it turned sequential (which was not my original intention). Though anatomy is kind of shot, I do sort of like the awkwardness of the positioning, like it was unplanned.

I am so ridiculously happy right now

I can hardly contain it

I just


This is something I wrote in my free time, when I should have been writing a very important assignment for English. But I feel this is far more important to me than any grade ever could be. It's copied from my Tumblr, which is why I make mention of it in the third paragraph as a way to establish the general topic of this essay. I'm posting it here beforehand because I like you guys.

It's long, but I like to think it's worth the read.

 I know it's been months since I posted anything. I got distracted. I'd say by school, but nah, not really. It's Tumblr. That site is addicting. Infuriating at times, but addicting.

Let's start the dump, shall we?
This is from three different sketchbooks: the rest of the peacock covered one, the one that I was using as placeholder while waiting to get a new moleskine, and the new moleskine itself. I'm sorry the images are so big. I need to be more consistent about my resizing process.

I'm going to finish scanning things tonight, but by the time I'm done, I'll want to sleep.

You can check out my tumblr to see some of my favorites.

Because that's what this is, right? A sketch blog or something?

It'll be a biggie. And I'm still scanning so it'll be a couple hours.

The big piece of the first semester. Everyone in the class created their own character, and we each had to create a story using at most four of those characters. This is what I came up with:

So this story was a joint one. I came up with the characters, and my partner Olivia came up with the two settings. I wrote the majority of the story using those elements. Like the Keanu Reeves one I just posted, this was a kind of on the spot story, not something with weeks of planning behind it or anything.

A piece from last semester. We had to write a story based only on the title we were given.

I Am Not Keanu ReevesCollapse )
