…………….everyone’s talking about the new Thor movie and about Loki, and drawing Loki and posting gifs of Loki and Loki Loki Loki……I can’t…..the feels….
This time of year has always been very inspiring, with the wonderful warm tones of autumn, chilly weather and golden sun rays, and of course, Halloween creeping around :) I felt inspired to create something more atmospheric, dark and mysterious (just wish I had more time to create even more pieces).
Thanks for looking!
Need more sleep, need more coffee, need more time…..still a lot of things to do. No new pieces to show…yet. And I wrote coffee backwards….that shows how burnt out my brain is….asfgdhfasggah
Nothing much, just a warm-up sketch before work. Pretty colours + smoke coming out of eyes……would look good as a bookmark though…..
Done in SAI.
Dellusions of a Broken Mind……
Or more like ‘Look! I made a thing!’….I don’t know, just made a quick sketch in-between commissions, slapped some colours and textures on it and ta-da. Made in Sai….
Now back to work X______X
Ugh……..lots of work to be done on commissions…
I have nothing new to show right now, and probably for a while longer. Need to finish work first and then I’ll take a break. I’m not feeling well either…ugh….
I need more coffee…………………
Depeche Mode - Higher Love
The kind of thing I’m listening to lately….Depeche Mode songs always come at the right time in my life….
Just a lil something I cooked up in photoshop. A logo-type-thing for my project Hallowed. It’s supposed to be dark, bit twisty but still retain a magical, approachable atmosphere.
….not so sure about it, but it’s 1am and my eyelids are closing on their own. I’ll leave it here and look at it again tomorrow.
edit: added a second version…hmmm
Another design for Irene, from my project Hallowed. This is a more official/royal/etc costume, only worn on special situations. I’m still considering whether or not I will actually include this design in the storyline, or keep it for later use in other storylines.
Anyway, as you’ve noticed till now, Irene has a very flamboyant/daring/extravagant sense of style, and thus, a formal outfit would be quite…complex. It has a more royal factor, but still retains the practical aspect, easy to move around in (to some extend of course).
Those gilded trims killed me…pain in the ass to texture.
Second experiment with this style of shading, not quite sure about it yet, but I’m getting closer to what I want.
wippity wip wip wippy :)
Something I am working on right now, another design idea for Irene. Currently working on the shadow/light values….colours to follow.
Irene has killer outfits….she just drives me crazy (in a good way though)…
Character design for my story Hallowed….this is Irene, one of the main characters. This outfit is a very particular one, more like an enchanted armour-like styled costume. More style than armor though, because that’s how Irene likes to dress :)
Hallowed is quite an old project of mine, which has been put on hold for a while, and went through many changes both in story, design and style, it went from dark gothic to sci-fi to current-day style and now it came back to the dark gothic style (back to roots lol). Anyway, it’s been completely revamped, I’ve started reworking the character designs recently, and I hope to upload some new stuff for this story really soon.
The story is set in a very distant future, with a dark gothic-baroque aesthetic with a mix of high technology, the whole story centering around certain religious aspects, with a lot of supernatural flavour. It does have a good vs evil concept, but it’s not centered around that, but rather on our universe as a whole, both natural and supernatural. It will be a graphic-novel type, more artistic than just a classic styled comic book. I hope to update things on it quite regularly, if I have time :) More designs will follow, as soon as I revamp everything.
Anyway, enjoy the flamboyance of Irene’s wardrobe choices! :D
Costume study sketches…just doodling various outfits from reference, for inspiration in creating a character design for my comic Hallowed. Ugh….I need to post more often, it actually looks like I’m slacking, but I’ve been working on some commissions that I cannot post yet. But in the meantime, costume doodles! :D
Random character design I came up with just for fun :)
Her name’s Alice, and she is an uncontrollable party animal and trouble maker. Wild and egoistic,she’s more likely to get into a fist fight than a beauty club. At first sight, she seems like just another rude and obnoxious rock chick, but there’s a bit more to her than alcohol and swear words, she’s quite reliable when it comes to serious things, a quick-thinker and she always finds a smart (and of course, wild) way to get out of all the trouble she causes.
If her life had a soundtrack, it would mostly be AC/DC songs.
Her favourite city? Vegas of course!
Rendered in dazStudio3 and postworked in Photoshop.
I’m so angry and upset and sad and everything right now :( computer stopped working properly, it won’t recognise the mouse, it freezez if I listen to music while workin in photoshop, the tablet has glitches too…UGH….I don’t know if it’s the heat or what…but I just can’t work properly on it and it’s veryveryvery frustrating *goes in corner and cries* I’ll try fixing it, hopefully it will work better T___T
end of rant.
