These are some cartoons I did for my college newspaper. Posted here for posterity.

Plate 15/20. This took me about 9 hours total. Glad it’s finished!

Sketches from the workshop I’m doing, following the 19th-Century “Atelier” method. I was allowed to skip 3 and 4, but Plate 5 was much more challenging.

So I made a thing today! Cost less than five bucks and only took about twenty minutes! It was super fun to do and I made one for my friend Tara as well! On the back of the neck it says “UNACCEPTABLE” if you can’t read it with the wrinkle in the way. I will definitely be doing more Adventure Time tshirts in the future!

alphum:

My brother drew me adventure time style!

Ugh, I got the proportions way wrong on Catbug in retrospect.

Done doing these so here they all are in one place! Fully Dressed Redesigns of Superheroines.

Point of this: An exercise in character design, attempting to clothe the heroines nearly all the way and not making them painted-on, while still keeping the look of their original costumes in some way.  Hopefully keeping them looking as iconic as the originally were. Just showing what can be done with a costume breaking outside the barrier of the norm.

NOT the point of this: some moral code I’m trying to push on you

Sorry if there was a character you wanted me to do that I didn’t get to!

I like this challenge. Partially because I like the creative challenge. Mostly because this is how it should be done by the big studios, both for realism and modesty. (Though, I will admit that it’s more for realism than modesty for me.)

Some more work from the school year, but this stuff is more random. The lasers are pretty cool also.

I apologize for the sheer strangeness of these. No, I will not explain them.

This is the line of caricatures I made of my classmates and teachers last year. I took this with my iPod, which has scratch on the upper left side, so pardon the smudge. Also, the quality of work between these changes a lot.

A character guy I drew with pastels. It’s kinda meh.

I wanted to make a webcomic slice-of-life type thing, but when I started making the first comic, I realized that I was going to need a LOT more experience with digital art before I could achieve the quality of comic that I wanted. So I decided to make more sketch comics! One day maybe…

I was going to use this to make an awesome picture about the events of “[S] Descend,” but when I lost my stylus, I decided to post the pencil until I find it and (maybe) finish it.
