Here’s another original moth piece I made! This is a rosey maple moth named Momiji, or Momo for short! I had a lot of fun playing around with textures with this piece. The shorts Momo is wearing is actual old jeans I scanned into my scanner years ago. I then applied a filter to them and clipped it into the shorts drawing layer. The wings were made with layer wet on wet watercolours but ensuring one colour was dry before applying the other part. The jumper was a last minute decision and its of a photo of my plush flamingo: Forrest! I’m pleased with the results of the log, I used watercolour crayons to get that rough-like texture!
My latest illustration is a mashup of two things I like: Mothman and the mahou shoujo genre! Thought this would be a cute and quirky idea :3cThis design is available to buy on shirts, phone covers, notebooks and other fun stuff on Redbubble! -> https://www.redbubble.com/shop/ap/75413426
I have finally finished my little(?) pet project and it’s been a doozy.
TLDR for ahead; This is a mixed media piece of Kalas from the video game series Baten Kaitos that I have created in Affinity Photo with mixed media.
I want to try and be more wordy from now on when making a post for my work. To give you all an idea of what goes on in my head while making this and/or what made me think of creating a piece.While slowly chipping away at this illustration, I managed to finish playing Baten Kaitos on the Gamecube and adored it It may become my favorite Gamecube game of all time, even beating Super Smash Bros Melee! And that’s saying a lot because Melee has been a large part of my life, introducing me into different game franchises that still impact me including Fire Emblem and Earthbound. I just want to show my appreciation for this underappreciated franchise with some fanart of my favorite grumpy birb son: Kalas!
I shall now talk more about the piece itself! Starting off with the background. The background is based of a certain area in the game where it has a gorgeous pink/blue sky where you’re walking on clouds (since the game is set in the sky). The cloudy sky is made up from chalk pastels on pink textured paper. The swirly clouds were made with acrylic paints, blended together and forming lil’ circles!
Kalas himself is using a special attack in this piece also, named Shadow wings! His actual wings are made from acrylic paints, along with his hair, leather armour, dagger and sword. His cape is made from tea-stained crumpled paper with a pattern drawn with wax crayon. His glovey things are inks mixed together to get that funky pattern! I played around with blurring certain parts of the image to give the image more movement and also to capture to whispiness of the clouds c:
I have drawn Princess Carolyn from the animated series Bojack Horseman. Princess Carolyn is one of my favourite characters from the show too! I was initially going to draw more of the cast but I feel that ship has long past sailed.
For the past few months, I have been struggling with creating new illustrations and designs due to the realisation that there will be no cons that I will be attending for a good while. I have also ultimately decided from now onwards that I would like to create work that personally appeals to me. So any new updates may be erratic.
Finished the final part of my starter sticker designs of the water starters! I personally had the most fun coming up with poses for the Pokemon, Totodile being my favorite design! Mudkip is my favorite of all the starter Pokemon if you wanted to know! Let me know if you have a favorite!
This, along with a future post will be the last illustrations where I use Adobe Illustrator. I will be experimenting with other art programs such as Paint Tool SAI and GIMP. I may consider purchasing Affinity since I’ve considered that as an alternative to Illustrator.
Here is part 2 of a set of Pokemon stickers I’m designing! This set includes all the fire starter Pokemon up to this point. These designs are simple yet I added my own little twist to them by applying a neat watercolour texture on certain features. I did my best to give these characters unique poses.
From Top left to bottom right: Deku is a Tyrogue, I felt he suited a young fighting type and Tyrogue having the potential to evolve into 3 different fighting Pokemon kinda fits. Ochaco is a Jigglypuff since they both can float and have been known to make pouty faces in the past! Bakugo is a Voltorb since they’re both grumpy looking and cause explosions. Asui as a Politoed, cause froggos. Denki is a Electabuzz because 1. Pikachu is overdone and 2. I wanted an excuse to draw the intimidating looking Electabuzz looking like a goob. And finally I drew Toga as a Zoroark since they both can shapeshift into other people/Pokemon. I may or may not do more of these in the future!
