However You Get There, Foot It, Cab It, Iron Horse It.

Greetings folk!

My apologies, as I feel less and less inclined to transform my thoughts into words, these posts are getting quieter and quieter. Most of my energy is going into putting thoughts into shapes, so hopefully that suffices your needs as an audience, whatever those might be.

Greetings!

Graduation date draws nearer each and every day!
Excite!
Lots of questions about whats going to happen afterwards, but we will figure that out in due time. For now, we keep working away at what brings us joy. Right now that mostly means interpretations of Kentaro Miura’s ongoing masterpiece, BERSERK.

Design takes on “modernising” the characters. It was fun coming up with symbols and analogies for the things that couldn’t be transposed literally, e.g. Guts massive sword turned into a graphic T was my of my favourite moment.

Blizzards Overwatch is still stuck on my mind, and the OWL is coming up soon! Sad to see the *birnoises* team finally splitting, but excited to see what unfolds.
Here is a sweet blog run by JAKE (former *birdnoises* main DPS player and current team USA captain) on e-sports and the competitive scene.

Quick update: I’ve been working the past month or so at DHX studios, designing things for the upcoming Megaman TV show. It’s been really exciting and challenging :D
Kinda of a dream come true to me

Here are a couple of characters for a bigger project, that I decided to discontinue. Exploring a more sci-fi-ish look has been fun!

Some Mahou-Shoujo shenanigans! (try saying that quickly)

s765_ExosuitAndCasual

I’ve been ridding my bike a lot this summer. The sunshine, wind and the smell of the ocean all feel so good!

s766_SunlightFixie

  • I got my hands on the Zootopia art book: Cory Loftis is a JUGGERNAUT! (and a funny one too)
  • If you have a chance, go read SKIM by Jillian and Mariko Tamaki. The day I’m able to produce something half as heart felt as their work on This One Summer and SMMA I’ll consider myself accomplished for life
  • I’ve been a sucker for MF DOOM for a while, I love his flow, but his dry production was always a weak point for me. This made me shy away from The Mouse and The Mask and Born Like This until now. I was missing out.

Greetings!

I come forth today with more casual works. Quicker things executed with the intent of acquiring new skills, rather than demonstrating virtuosity.

First, experiments in colour and shapes.

Secondly, experiments in character, acting, and storytelling.

And last, experiments in gesture and motion.

Old Man Pedro

WitchHunt

Capture00065

Osma
One out of the 5 characters I came up for a game design document I’m working on. It’s an action adventure game revolving around witches storming castles as a backlash to the prosecution of innocent women under unfunded accusations of witchcraft. It’s called WitchHunt :D

s738_FourthWitch_03

Abigail
Our starting protagonist. After noticing that her father was a cruel leader, murdering women without concrete evidence, Abigail makes a sweet little deal with a black goat by the name of Phillip. She gets the power necessary to protest her father, and in exchange all she needs to do are a few favours for her new friend, including giving him his fathers extensive library.
It was TONS of fun to work on her.

s737_ThirdWitch_03

Gwen
A really fun character to work on, from her it came the idea that instead of a traditional attribute/equipment system, there would only be a ring system. 10 slots, 5 on each hand, all rings are interchangeable, but their slots matter. Dominant hand rings affects the Heavy Attack moves, rings on the non-dominant hand affect the Light Attack moves, and both hands affect the Area Attack moves.
A little nod to Miura-Sensei

s736_SecondWitch_02

Agnes!
The first character to pop into my head. Apparently I really like drawing gross things.
I was thinking that for the game you would only control one witch at a time, but you could “tag out” with another witch at any point. The catch is that it would require a fairly long spell cast time to do so, and therefore making it a risky move when enemies are nearby. If one of the witches dies, during the casting or at any other point, she is out of commission for that level. So for practical effects, the player has 5 lives per level, but the lives are attached to specific move-sets.

s735_FirstWitch_02

The last of the Witches, and the oldest of them!
A victim of persecution herself, Iria along with her four sisters were captured, tortured and killed under false accusations of witchcraft. During the torture Philip snuck in and offered the 5 siblings a way out if they became witches, but their feverish spirituality forbade them to do so. After days listening to her sisters desperation, each locked up inside an Iron Maiden, the cries faded, one by one. Iria was the last one alive. Moments before her last breath she called for Phillip.

s739_FifthWitch_02

A little nothing. Had a proposal for an illustration where I had to mash up 3 wildly different characters into one narrative image. This is the result.

s742_KeychainMashup_02_big

I’ve been listening to quite a bit of rap lately and decided to paint some of those faces after I had a talk with a friend and embarrassingly realised I could’t paint darker skin tones at the same level as lighter ones.

The resemblance and facial structures here are really lacking, but since the goal was simply achieving and learning about skin colour, I think these were fairly successful.

Give those guys a listen!

Joey Bada$$ – His new album All-Amerikkkan Badas$$ is fantastic.

I got my hands on a Cintiq 12wx! It’s an old model, but it works great! I’ve been doing some morning gestures to get used to it. I haven’t used it for any real work just yet.
