Eight of Swords.  photoshop.
Whoops another tarot card appeared.  North was rough to associate with a card, he was very nearly the two of cups exclusively on the merit that he looks like the red winged lion from the Rider-Waite deck.
Instead he gets to be represented by a hooded falcon in the middle of a caldera.

Gumi.  photoshop.
A long while back, Magnolia got me into Vocaloids music via osmosis.  I like a bunch of Gumi’s songs but don’t really care much for her canon outfit and Mags has been trying to get me to give a shot at dressing her up.  Dunno if I hit what I was going for, maybe I’ll give it another shot later!

Character Q&A: Kaia, Dhio, North

A little while ago I mentioned wanting to fill out a character meme that was going around and my pal Chelsea was a dear and gave me a few prompts.  Here’s some questions answered by those guys I won’t stop drawing.

• What are your strengths?

Namco High: Cousin designs

As you might know, ShiftyLook is shutting down later this year and as a result, today is the last day to purchase Namco High.  While I still have a chance, I wanted to talk a little bit about my designs for the game!

Cousin’s appearance was probably the most important design made for the game.  They were also the only character that was created for Namco High; everyone else (excluding a few incidental background characters) was a pre-existing property character.

One of the direct orders I received was that Cousin’s Katamari antenna needed to end in a heart.  So I just played into that theme in spades (or hearts. uh).  Heart-shaped head (the v-neck sweater implies the bottom of the heart shape), heart insignia on the sweater, head and body in shades of red and pink.

Everyone who plays Namco High would need to be able to project themselves onto this avatar.  Cousin has no canon gender, orientation, or race; the player is able to decide all those things for themselves.  As such, I made certain that their design was as imprintable as possible; nondescript sexual and gender signifiers, and a non-human skintone.

The game is available to purchase for $7.50 until the end of March 28th.

sometimes I draw really self-indulgent art of my characters and then turn into a flustered baby and don’t post it, the end.

Worldbuilding (3/3): North

Part 1 | Part 2

This is it!  I’ve been so pleasantly surprised with the response to these fellas. They’re extremely dear to me and I’d love more than anything to drop everything and run off to write a series of comics or prose novels about them, ha ha.  But that sort of thing isn’t possible at this time.

Anyway, thank you guys for hanging out and letting me talk at you.

It’s time to talk at length about this guy!!  Apologies in advance, I’m about to talk about dragon cultures for maybe longer than is strictly necessary.

"Eouen was a terror bird in her first life." photoshop.
A bunch of people were really excited by the last sentence of the most recent worldbuilding post, so I finally took a crack at Eouen’s design.  She was originally some sort of colossal leucistic terror bird who was remade into a sun god.
Looking around at reference images of terror birds, it was weird to see a lot of reconstructions based on modern large flightless birds (ratites) instead of their closest living relatives (seriemas).  Then again, I’m not in any way a scientist or scientific illustrator!  Anyway, I went for a more elegant streamlined body shape and specialized feathers closer to seriemas with a coloration based on secretary birds.  Because it’s fantasy and I get to do what I like!

Lil’ Red and Friend. photoshop.
One of my goals for this year is to become a better designer!  I want to become smarter about using shape and color.
You can buy Lil’ Red and the wolf as earrings or a necklace over at Hey Chickadee!  I received samples and they both came out really beautifully!  While I’m here, both Johnny Wander and I have collections at the site.
