Hey guys!

So I will be boothing at Anime Expo next year and I want to get a big artbook and several smaller sketchbooks done for it. The art book will have several pieces of some IP’s of mine I’m working on and old blast from the pasts designs like these but re-worked and re-done with my current design/rendering style. I know many have requested more fantasy work like my older designs and so I’m designing an entire IP around it called for now “Raxeira”. Which is going to be balls deep fantasy. I have a couple others, Monstrum Tech-which you’ll be seeing more of when I get time, Chiaroscuro- I’m still working this out because it’s science of light heavy, and War Story- I got the world planned out, how politics work, main characters, somewhat of a point a to point b, I’m still working on the story aspects.  I also want to stay chipping away at.  Going to try and do a blend of styles as well so it’ll be fun!

Smaller sketchbooks I will be selling will be the design process I go through, so all the little sketches I do trying to solve out design. Even the dumb notes or ways I try and solve out armor designs like making material lists and theme lists and try picking out what would blend interestingly. A sketchbook like this. Since I plan a lot traditionally still.

A sketchbook dedicated to all my figure drawing and mech studies. So I’m going to start withholding a ton of those. Calling that Process Progress for sure. Or Progress Process. Either or. Probably just those two words all over the book.

And a fanart one done in a cartoony style!

Also several prints I’m going to be doing, going to try and step up my environment game! I’m planning out a parallaxing background with the blue skinned girl and getting some more practice under my belt with little personal projects.

Classwork!

Some fighters. One obviously inspired by a Bubble Tape dispenser.

Some random instagrams and some male studies woop woop. Slowly creeping back into my old fantasy design theories. Swirlies and pointy ears.

Gif doesn’t have the tweaks sorry about that. Added some of the composition roughs as well, I really wanted to capture the scene of her awakening. Some are more violent then others but Painwheel’s a volatile character.

Painwheels Steam Card. I’m really glad I got her. I love drawing factory backgrounds.

Animation is one of my favorite things in the world. But I do not have a knack for it. Luckily clean up work is right up my alley and the Skullgirls team was cool enough to let me work for them.

But it’s cool, I live vicariously through my rad friends.

I’m still alive.Overdue piece-WIP Should be just a few more hours until completion.

Shape is one of those words that sound really weird when you say it over and over again.

Welcome to your new curse.

Some Skullgirls clean up animations I did.

Some 5 minute quicksketches done at Watts Atelier sometime last year.

Hoping to wrap up 6-7 more designs this weekend for my client and finish another illustration for a client this week.
Taking a mech class again next term with Paul Christopher! I hope after this long job to take classes at CDA or Red Engine at the end of the year. I’m an hour away from CDA on bike and 40 minutes away from Red Engine which is awesome. I believe Gnomon is around here too somewhere in LA. 
I have a lot of things I want to do this year and I’ll admit I was in a bit of a slump earlier this year but thanks to my new friends they have been really inspiring to get my ass back in gear.
