25. BFA in Book Arts/Illustration/Printmaking. Likes making books and writing stories with questionable content.

Quick photos of the ‘finished’ (for critique at least) pieces. Critique went well and more positive than I anticipated so feeling pretty good! Looking forward to revisiting these once I get them back from grading.

My poor coloring skills come to bite me again… The colours need more work but my bed calls to me. Decisions, decisions.

Work in progress concept art! I’m about 110% mentally done with this assignment, but dang I like how these look all inked up. Hopefully my poor coloring skills don’t muck ‘em up.

I’ve fallen down the rabbit hole and there is no turning back. 

I regret nothing.

Hey look more colour sketches from class! I love having an Illustration class again; I get 2.5 hours of just pure drawing and painting and whatever I want and it’s more than I’ve had in so long. My teacher said in not-so-many words that my last colour scheme was plain and predictable and, since I’m making my own world here, I decided to take that critique to heart and explore a different palette. I’m feeling pretty good about these and am looking forward to working on the finals. 

Also hot damn it feels good to work in coloured inkwashes. It’s so fast and I can explore a lot more and I colour things so rarely that seeing things I do in colour is exciting to me haha. I need to do more of this. 

Results of my Workspace Wednesday today and planning in class for my next assignment. We have to do 2 ‘scene sketches’ to portray the atmosphere of our story. This is my first time doing little colour sketches in my sketchbook in this manner and I really like it! I have to push the colours a lot more but it’s a good place to start.

My first inking with my new dip pen supplies! Which I got forever ago but just now got around to using shhhh

This is a guy I’ve taken to called the ‘White Prince’, aka ‘The Prince of Textures’ haha. He’s one of 2 main characters in a script I’m writing and working with for my Concept Art & Illustration class. 

P.S. I’m totally in love with dip pens I keep my same ‘style’ of inking but it takes 1/4 of the time it’s like fucking magic.

Finally getting around to scanning some things!

Did a while ago to get out of a funk, I’m still really happy with it.

Look what amazing thing I got today!!! I received this lovely Khoshekh kitten from Armeleia after being a part of her RedCross donation giveaway. So not only did I get to donate to an amazing cause but I also got this little dude too! The packaging was beautiful and the note was awesome (and written in sparkly purple gel pen). Not to mention how stunning the kitten itself is. When the light hits him it looks like he ‘s glowing.

I then promptly gave him to my grey Narin, Luaith, because who better to take care of a strange floating kitten that may or may not be hazardous to ones health than the slightly sadistic ringleader of a traveling night circus? I can tell they’ll be best of friends, they’re already taking Instagram selfies together.

Thank you so much Armeleia! I’ll take good care of him.

P.S. These kittens are not for sale.
