April Continues

This month has been busy!! Not only have I started a second job, but I also have started several other commissions promised to several fans of mine on Deviant Art. I plan to tackle them all at the same time to keep the canvas fresh. Once they're done I'll be adding them to my small storefront page on Facebook as sample works.

Here we have Zee the electronically enhanced human, Akuri the fennec fox, and Isdes in 2 forms (human and dragon). They're all very creative characters and deciding on poses has been very difficult. I used reference for the first two images and the last is still in the concept stage.

I'm hoping to finish the first two before the end of next month and the third by the end of June. The last will be a full-render color painting. It'll be challenging. But I'm really looking forward to it. :)

2004 and 2012

It's really fun to look at. I had the HARDEST time with his right arm!! I'm satisfied with it though, for sure. It was a great project to work on to see how I've evolved in the last 8 years. I'm thinking I might pursue it again a little later to embellish the color. I might have to completely paint it if I go in that direction. But we'll see. I currently have robots to draw instead.

Current Projects

Well everyone. My first commission portrait is done and I will be sharing that next month after it's gifted. In the meantime I haven't gone stagnant. I've continued to doodle and browse art and write with my friends.

While looking for a new desktop:

...a nice Mushishi one...

...I was browsing a lot of Final Fantasy galleries and was surprised how buried it's gotten beneath newer FF titles. It made me kinda sad that the classics might be forgotten by future generations. It reminded me of an old fanart I submitted to DeviantArt of Cloud and Aeris. This inspired the idea to revisit my old art piece and redo it. This will compare my abilities from 2004 to my abilities now in 2012.

The process has already begun.

This will be my current project for a little while. Following that will be more commissions for friends while I wait for more paid commissions.

OTHER GOOD NEWS! I'm picking up a second job at a garden center to double my income for the summer. It will mean I have less free time, but I have a feeling if I keep up this momentum, I will feel carried by it. :) I might also have new specimens to base some art on. We'll see!
