This requires a small bit of a story, but I was recently inspired to do my higher-detailed style on an art piece that came to mind.

 

Several years ago at Animazement 2009, I had ran into someone who was donning a cosplay I had made for a friend. This someone and I hung out for a bit, before I parted ways to head back home that day. What they didn’t know at the time was that I had a bad day, and hanging out with a familiar face + getting to see a cosplay I worked on in use made my day.

 

Since then, I’ve been wanting to draw said person as a sort of thank-you, but never thought I’d be able to pull it off properly. I had tried on paper a few times in the first couple years,¬† and kind of forgot about it once I hit ETSU. Going down memory lane again I realized that it was better late than never, especially since people were actually commissioning me for art.

 

So thank you, Kendall. You left a positive memory with me that stuck almost 10 years later. I don’t know where you are now to get ahold of you, but maybe you’ll run across this in the future one of these days.

On an artist’s note, I’m real happy with how this piece turned out. I did this completely with my Intuos, which was a shocker to me; usually I only get these near-realistic proportions when drawing with my Cintiq. So this was a pause and gawk going, “Huh, I pulled it off.”

This was an art piece that was supposed to get done near Christmas, but got delayed for various reasons. However, I’ve had doodled a connection I knew back in 2017, specifically drawing her with attire from the Janus Fairytale setting. I took this a step further and wanted to do a “mystery” piece to give as a gift for the holidays. Despite being late, I finally got this done either rate!

 

I was real happy with the background and the lighting, it’s been a bit since I did something that was foreboding but not directly spooky.

 

You can check out said connection, who’s name is Sandra Shuman! She does art coaching stuff and does a lot of interesting things. Do check her out here.

This was a commission I did for someone off of Fiverr, for a sample layout of their poem book. This was a bit of fun to do, and I really¬† got a chance to experiment with the background a little. It does look a tad bit wonky in my opinion, and that’s because I think my figures are now starting to take a more realistic slant in proportions. That’s a good thing, I would think; except when you’re halfway in between styles.

This was one of these writing prompts off of Reddit I had the compelling urge to respond to. After all, I get to work in my anachronistic beach comber sketch! So I made a backstory for the character, pretended she was a painting and drummed this up.

Done in April 23, 2018.

Note: My writing for Reddit writing prompts is different for brevity. While this is a good example of my writing, I often omit backstory and several details to create a concise post. Please look at my other works if you’re looking for my more regular style of writing.

This was in the works since last fall actually, but I only got around to getting it done within the past few days. But I’ve had this idea of taking a girl from each faction on Talmeron, and sticking them together as if they were getting ready for a harvest festival. This was the end result!
