Ciel Character Designs!

Ciel: People

Sorry I've been gone, I didn't want to fill up the blog with WIPs - while I like the habit of posting 3 times a week, I think I'd rather post something fresh or skip a day than post something that's in progress. It also saves me the trouble of uploading it to flickr when I'm just going to want to delete it later.

So here we have something - this is Ciel for Advanced Concept Art, finally we're moving to character designs, where I'm more comfortable as opposed to landscapes. These are 20 assorted 'villagers,' based loosely off of Mongolian attire and styles. Expect 20 more within the week, and I have to take at least 3 of these to a more finished look. But they were really fun to do and I'm happy with how cohesive they look.

Okamiden Fanart


Just a little something for fun. Don't actually have the game (yet?), but still excited for it.

Hope everyone's having a good spring break!

Orochimaru / 'Zine Submission


I've never seen Naruto, but the illustration seniors were organizing a 'zine for Naruto fanart. A few years ago I might have gotten all uppity about the idea, but at the moment I was grateful for a) an excuse to reignite my love affair with sumi, and b) a break from thesis!

Also, in researching the characters to decide which one to do, I was like, I'll watch one scene with Orochu-whoever and see what he's like! It turned out to be the scene where he and Sasuke fight. In trying to describe exactly what this first impression was like, I've told people that it's like wanting to see some hot lesbian sex, so going to see this movie you heard someone talking about called "Black Swan."

Thesis: Architect!

Architect Turnaround

He's finally finished now, too! It's satisfying hahaha. The rest of thesis is going to be a few narrative pieces and as many pages of concept sketches as I can muster!

Thesis: Queen DONE

Queen Turnaround

Well.. she still has to receive my midterm critique's blessing, but for the most part... done and done. Whew! I'm not quite sure about this presentation format, but I wanted to get something ready for Tuesday. Also lacking are notes on materials/purpose, but I wasn't quite sure what to put other than what metals and fabrics inspired her clothes. I can do metals, but frankly the fabrics will require a bit more research.

The Architect will be posted tomorrow :)
