Finished this one up! It was a commission for someone of their character in the game "Wakfu." This was definitely a fun one.

Between finals and various portfolio submissions, I am preeetty beat! I'm getting over a ridiculous cold, too. This semester is coming to a close (two weeks left!), and I am very excited for the summer. There are a few different directions it can go, but regardless of which I'm going to be working on some form of animation! I'm super excited about all of the possible projects, so I know I won't be disappointed if I get one over the other.

I need to head off to class! Working on texturing the 3D character I posted the other day. Take care, everyone!

New Layout!

And also, a new layout! Har har har. This is for what will be my thesis! Also using it in a little test animation, which you'll all see in time.

I am so excited for everything going on! Things at school are going fantastically. I'm taking an interactive design class, and we're creating a video game. I designed the character above, and my teammate Allison modeled it. She did a great job. It's so neat to see my characters in 3D!

She worked from this turnaround to build the model. It's a bit rough, since we had limited time, but I'm still pretty happy with how it turned out.

Will post with more updates soon! Including screenshots of the game in progress, as well as more recent animation work. Take care!

So many things to do!

I've been working on some commissions lately! I have a pretty big chunk to get through, but my customers are great :) It's funny doing this again. I used to work anime conventions - sell prints and do on-the-spot commissions at tables in the artist alleys. Haven't done that in a few years now, but it feels nice getting back to commission work. I always loved drawing other people's characters. 

 School has been going well! I'm so excited about where everything is going. I had to drop Layout and Timing - a pretty amazing class that gives you a whole slew of pointers on layout (background/general scene composition and flow), as well as actual timing out of key drawings. Unfortunately it was way too much for me to handle at the same time as a full animation class, as well as work. I am pretty sure I'm going to be switching over to part time at school in the fall, and I'm honestly very excited about it. The idea of staying two full years more is a little hard to think about, but ultimately it's for the best! It's two years that I will actually enjoy the frustration of school. Right now, I am just frustrated by the fact that I can never get all of my work done.
I have a friend from home coming over this weekend! Annie's been one of my best friends since I was in middle school, so she's always a great guest to have. We have that whole cheesy connection of really understanding each other. It's pretty amazing, not going to lie. I think it's really important that everyone has at least one of those people around.

I'm off to class! SCIENCE!

Quick update!

 WIP of a little painting! This is just a small section of it. :)

 Doodle-daddle of a web avatar for myself.

Some Mother fanart! I love these games. :)

I am up to quite a bit! Lots of school, work, and art! Currently wading waist-deep in some commissions, but they're a blast! Really excited to be doing these again, it's been so long!

Hope all is well with everyone - one day I won't fail at updating this blog!
