Off to CTNX!

So I'm heading off to CTNX tomorrow! I'm super excited to meet tons of cool people there. I've also been prepping my portfolio.I updated my banner and am in the process of updating my blog format so look forward to seeing that by tomorrow. Also I've been doing some more drawings as a break from class.

Doge is a very outgoing dog that loves making friends. Doge is very happy-go-lucky and is always found talking to strangers. He keeps a record of events in his notebook and likes drawing pictures. Doge is a very random dog that will become very excited at moments and everyone besides his friends find him to be very strange. As of recently, Doge has befriended many of The Nays, such as Firebreath and Ted. Doge wants to be a strong leader one day and strives to improve.

Tons of Expressions!

Some more fun Character Design assignments!

This was a super fun assignment where my friend Laura Mansfield gave me a character description and I had to create the character based from it.

This assignment was to draw 5 expressions, 5 variations of each, for one character. So I chose Gallu, the leader of the Party Place in Party Sanctuary who has little confidence in himself.

Ohio History Museum

So last week I had the opportunity to visit the Ohio History Museum. Currently I'm working on a research project for my story class, involving Ohio History, so these are some sketches I did while I was there, as well as some that I developed based on them.

Some character sketches for the ideas I came up with.

Some sketches from the Museum.

And some photos I took while I was there.

Keeping Up with the Characters

I've been having to rush some of these daily characters because of the amount of work for final and CTN prep I have to do, but either way, I've been trying to keep up with them!

Eustar is the youngest World Leader, so he is often very timid and unsure of himself. Sometimes he will have a complete personality change in which he is very outgoing and crazy. He always seems to have people he trusts around him just to ensure that he makes the right decisions as a World Leader.

Celia is the obnoxious daughter of a very wealthy businessman. Because of her wealth, she is somewhat snobbish and egotistic. She is not the most intelligent women, but she is extremely social. She is also not a very faithful women, as she will find multiple romantic partners and cheat on the ones she is currently in a relationship with.

Baselia is a very soft-spoken woman who is very kind-hearted. She loves helping out her best friend and husband, Rocko. She is very talkative when she is around him, and they will work to make decisions together.

Daily Characters!

Some more characters that I've been drawing this week!

Baw is a very energetic monkey who has a speech impediment. Although he was diagnosed and learned how to speak better, it often tires him out, so he does not do it often. Baw loves physical contact and will always grab onto people to make himself feel more secure. He loves to talk, even if he is not very skilled at it.

Katume used to be a mindless follower of Death, but once Trekkon joined his side, he began to think on his own and develop a friendship with Trekkon. Katume is very active and shares his thoughts with Trekkon alone, treating him as a brother. He loves the thrills of battle and will fight whenever he has the chance to. He looks out out for Trekkon and will stay by his side whenever needed.

Snips is a mother of three sons, who loves baking. She is always seen making cheesecake, which is the favorite dessert of her whole family. She is often very strict, but can be kindhearted when guests are present, or during pleasant family time.
