Walking Gods cast (or at least some of ‘em).  photoshop.
Whoops, this slowly appeared over the course of the past week.  A lot of these guys I haven’t drawn in literally years.  For those curious, Noalle is a sibyl and Kaia’s friend.  Haldae is a scary dragon.  Círran is a flower farmer.  Oria is the god of the harvest. (more information about this story here)
If the CUTTINGS kickstarter hits its next goal (adding SIXTEEN pages of content), there’s a really good chance this’ll be included in the book!  It only has 8 days to go, aaa!  Thank you so much again to everyone who’s supported the project!!

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.

My Favorite Avatar Bros.  fanart friday.  photoshop noodling.
Oh dang, Korra season finale tomorrow!  I’m super excited!  Would’ve noodled with this more, but it’s starting to thunderstorm over here and I should probably disconnect from the cintiq.
One thing that I love about the new Avatar series is how adults are allowed to be fully-formed characters and be present.  Heck, nearly half of the main cast is over the age of 30!  And they’re all amazing and fun and rounded and flawed. It’s refreshing to see a cast of adults in a kids’ show being allowed to be adults and not clueless foils.
Also Tenzin has a rockin’ coherent design and he’s made out of a tower of pointy bells.

Unused Little Red Riding Hood Character Designs.  Photoshop.
A long while back, I was approached to do a Little Red Riding Hood book.  The project wound up falling through, which is too bad, because it was something I was really looking forward to.  But the character designs remain, as do the final page thumbnails.  Maybe some day I’ll do it on my own.

Character design for Atomic Robo.  Pencil.
For an upcoming issue, Brian and Scott requested that I (and a few of their other female artist friends) design 50’s fighter pilot versions of ourselves.  This is stupidly exciting and I’m stupidly excited.  Omigosh omigosh omigosh I’m gunna be in Atomic Robo
But-seriously, pick up a volume of Atomic Robo if you haven’t already.  It’s a fun, witty all-ages science/adventure comic and you won’t be disappointed.

Serona fashion shots.  Photoshop noodling.
Whenever I run out of things to draw, I seem to doodle Serona in different outfits.  It’s become a running theme for me … … …
