Yesterday artist raikoart jumped on board the #drawthisinyourstyle challenge. Basically you draw a given character in your own style when they use the hashtag. As people loved his sci-fi secret agent Tess, raikoart decided to call out and see who’d be up to the challenger with her:
I answered the call and did Tess as best as I could, in my most common styles. I mostly was light-hearted in my approach, even referencing a mischievous Orthin from Stars in Shadow hiding from Tess in the webcomic panel, having stolen a bunch of Snickers (another running joke with the character).
You can check out raikoart’s stuff below:
This was something I whipped up for the r/touhou community. I took Yukari Yakumo and created “nose art” in line of the Stars in Shadow universe. Didn’t make it too “pinup-y” if that made sense. Mainly just wanted to make her the girl of attention toting a giant cannon.

If you ever feel bad about not finding a job (like I’ve felt in the past,) you’ll find something eventually. Just keep looking and improving on yourself. The right jobby-job is waiting out there for you!

So I follow the infamous Reg, daughter of the mom who’d play numerous Bioware video games. This subsequently led to the creation of Bioware According to Mom, which has been a fantastic journey to many, including the mom getting some fame in Mass Effect 3 when the Citadel DLC came out.
Anyways, Reg’s birthday was today and I saw a post of “all I got for my birthday was a discount code to buy a mobile game.” I figured the Internet space could do better, hence I cooked this up!
References include Bioware mom quips including the “krogers” working at Krogers (her pronunciation of krogans), Garrus getting stuck with the name Beans, and lastly getting her hands on a babby kroger (that’s how she spelled it.)
Suffice to say Reg loved it. Glad to be of service. Swing by their blog or follow on Twitter for more shenanigans!

Deathmatch/Free for All was a welcome game mode when Overwatch introduced it. This is one of my brighter, shining moments with FFA Deatmatch, including a Play of the Game.
Original gameplay back in November 30th, 2017. Yes, still quite bad at not keeping up with current trends/games when it comes to videos.
I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.
This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.
EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!
You can check out my prize here. I also got listed on the developer’s site as a contest winner!
It’s short, but just a shoutout that I’m alive and doing well. Hope everyone had a great holiday seasoon! This is just a nutshell in what I’m planning to do this year.

Last year I got to interview William from PetiteGames about his projects. At the time a comic was supposed to accompany the interview (making light of the abrupt piano “death” sound in Midnight) but was lost due to a corrupt PSD. Due to some hardships in 2017 I never got around to drawing this myself, so I asked my friend Christina for help with this. She was glad to, and we got finally done at the beginning of the year.
Do enjoy, and keep an eye out for William’s stuff on the Nintendo Wii store!
