Fighting Milkmaid

For CHOW 202 - the challenge was to design a fighting-game character for a world tournament that was based on some nationality.

I tried to do something Hyungtae Kim-esque because that's who I associate with fighting game characters -- even though I'm not sure he ever did a single fighting game concept.

The Passenger

"Oh the passenger
He rides and he rides
He sees things from under glass
He looks through his window side
He sees the things that he knows are his
He sees the bright and hollow sky
He sees the city sleep at night
He sees the stars are out tonight"
- Iggy Pop, The Passenger

Quick speedpaint, no ref.

Queen of Goth & Country

Trying to post more stuff regularly here. I've been a busy bee last month, since I got laid off and rehired. Lots of paintings in progress (should be more, since I'm off to sit on the street and sell them next month), lots of digital art, and a bunch of comics I can't show off here.

My goal is to post more every year than I did the year before.

Anyway, this is a sketch I did for the Monarch of Chow contest:

I've always thought goth and country might go well together, since there's plenty of emo country songs. Except I like goth music. Country... not so much. The music itself isn't terrible but that twang makes me want to beat cowboys to death with their own guitars.

Had to redesign Andromeda for Chow 201 over on ConceptArt. I thought Pirate Princess Andromeda would be fun to do.

I've even started writing a story for her in my head based on the myth. She gets kidnapped by her mother's crew so that they can sacrifice her to break a curse. There's no Perseus, though, so she and her best friends from pirate school have to figure out how to deal with the dreaded drooling frog-beast. It all sounds very silly.

Fennec Idol

Just finished the latest idol painting today.

I've got one more idol I want to do, a pug painting that may be more like a real (or cartoon) dog, at least one odd landscape I want to start tomorrow and then I'm moving on to banana slugs.

Plans. It's good to have 'em!

Hare Idol

Another acrylic painting. I've got one more idol on the easel right now, and two in the planning.

This one came from some reference photos I shot of some hares.
