Drawing in my Sketchbook at Home

I don't draw in my sketchbook nearly enough, so I took a break and just sketched a little bit one day.

Honck & Korey

These two were done much more quickly.

Honck is a very enthusiastic alcoholic who loves to party. They are very carefree and always running around and they really know how to have fun. Honck is the CrY family jester who often provides entertainment for the family parties.

Korey is a fox who lives inside of a water bubble. She loves to swim and play water sports. She is always very active and bouncing around in her bubble of water. Korey is more of a loner and doesn't really socialize very often.

Nays Comic Fun Time

So the other night, me and my brother decided to have a throw-back to old activities we used to do. So since we had been listening to old cassette tapes that we recorded, we opened up an old notebook from like 2003 and had to do something related to whatever page it was opened to. It was an old comic that The Nays made in like Frank Lady World, so what we did was made a new comic that had to revolve around those old characters that The Nays created. Since it was just his Nays who did that comic, they were the ones who got to choose which of my Nays made this comic. This was honestly a lot more fun than I thought it would be. Even though the comic literally makes no sense with a new character being released every panel, we laughed a lot while making them and it was a lot of fun.

These were the comic pages I made!

And then these are photos of the original characters (all drawn by Steve Rakar like 10 years ago).

Dr Birdonics & Beth

Both of these were originally designed by my brother, so it was fun to re-imagine them in my own style and slightly redesign parts of them.

Dr Birdonics is a doctor-in-training who hopes to be a master doctor in time. He works on the medical team in Tag World, and although he is very clumsy, he is dedicated to improving. Dr Birdonics loves talking with his patients, and getting involved in hopes that we will eagerly be able to help out, wherever necessary.

Beth is a very healthy and active woman, especially considering her age. She loves milk, and always carries extras with her, usually to use in battle and dump on her opponents as a distraction. Beth is very trusting of Hoedown Fox, and believes that he will lead a peacefully world where her and her family can live happily.

Character Doodles

Trying to take some time to sketch for myself, but it's hard when I'm so busy!

Molly & Regent Pin Pin

More daily characters!

Molly is a laid-back bartender who loves juicy gossip, so she works mostly during the daytime. She often starts new rumors, or spreads existing ones based upon stuff that she hears from her customers. Molly is pretty chill, but she can get pretty sassy, especially with strangers. She is always nosing her way into everyone's business, and knows where all of her regulars spend their time when they're not there.

Regent Pin Pin is extremely trusting, even if it is not the logical decision. He rules over the Pintos, and attempts to rule based on what he believes is best for his people, rather than what they really want. He ends up trusting Divroga much more than he should, and ends up getting very close to him, and his views are extremely manipulated. Regent Pin Pin begins to care about his people and realize what is best for them, but it is a little too late...

Experimenting with Styles

Here are some recent things I've done.

I did this one in Death Note style a few weeks back.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary for Mother 3, I decided to make this little doodle, on the day. This was an experiment with a lineless look, too.

Elftress & Shinneas

Both of these characters have Mohawks (sorta). But this is my first time drawing this design for Elftress, so I'm not entirely sure if this is what his final design is. I tried to flesh him out more than my usual daily characters, because he is a main character that I had not had a final design for yet.

Elftress is a very powerful World Leader who has the ability to seal creatures away using his tuba. His tuba is able to injure opponents' eardrums when playing specific tones through sound waves. Elftress runs Outlaw Bar, which doubles as a weapon shop. Once his World became much larger and populated, he is forced to give some of his ownership up to his partner Kouketsu. Elftress has many apprentices, including his two younger brothers Elfno and Elftair.

Shinneas is a gangster from North City who makes his way to North Harbor to get revenge on the Saku family. Since Jaboo and Cassie pulverized his boss, he attempts to get his revenge by breaking into their house and catching them by surprise. He is the new leader of his gang, the Silent Snakes, after his leader is gone. Shinneas runs things differently and is much more forceful. He aims for committing as much crime as possible and placing the blame on other rival gangs, so they can stay in the shadows and away from surveillance.

Sarah Concept Art

A week or so ago, I had my portfolio reviewed and it made me start to reflect on a few things regarding the direction I am taking my art in. I decided to try something new and step out of my comfort zone for this one.

And the process!

 I started with a basic gestural sketch to get down the pose.

 And then I went ahead and detailed in the costume.

I used the sketch as a base, and then blocked in the colors. 

I started placing in the basic shading using a hard brush. 

Then I started to flesh out the background a little more. 

I softened the shading a bit and smoothed things out. 

And then I made some finishing touches to the background.

Stigly & Dact

Some characters that were introduced semi-recently in regards to which Eventure.

Stigly is a very polite young boy who enjoys helping others. His catchphrase is "Um... excuse me!" since he is always politely saying that before he speaks. He is very active and knows the train routes very well in Mr Dude World. Stigly is a very considerate young man who is always thinking about others.

Dact is a rogue bird from the southern part of Tag World who does very sketchy work. He is one of Geot's assistants who does whatever he says. Dact is a follower who always follows what his group is doing. Although, his background as a thief is what makes him so valuable to the group. He is able to sneakily steal information from their enemies, and use it against them for his dirty work.

Spring Break Camp Life Drawings

While I was at Spring Camp, I had some time to do some life drawing sketches. These were all done in the Cleveland Airport and during our staff dinner at Buca.

Jaysin & Solty

So now that I'm back from Spring Break Camp, that means my daily characters are back!

Jaysin is a wanted criminal from TGWTLT World, who enjoys breaking the law. He has been convicted of theft, breaking & entering, and assaulting an elderly woman all within a week, which is why Ginko sends the White Cloaks all the way to PS World to arrest him. Jaysin generally doesn't care about other people, so he's mostly a loner. Something went terribly wrong in his past, which is why he enjoys causing harm to others so much. Though he looks tough, he is actually quite cowardly when being chased or caught in the act.

Solty is one of the lead members of the Beauties Club, and is extremely concerned with her looks. Because her cousin Rith is the leader, she is placed very highly in the club, and is one of the members who chooses whether or not someone is beautiful enough to join. Her laugh sounds like it is mocking others, but she does not always mean it that way. Solty has a reserved sense of humor, so she often fakes laughs whenever she needs to fit in.

Sketches on the Plane

I ended up drawing a lot more in my sketchbook during my trip to Santa Clara. A lot of these were actually drawn on the plane ride there. But then I did a few of them also before bed. I also started drawing whatever came to mind while listening to music for some of these.

Back from Spring Break Camp!

So this past week, I taught little kids how to use Photoshop at the iD Tech Mini Spring Break Camp! It was a lot of fun and I had some really awesome kids. Each day I had 40 minutes for a break during their time at the Maker Station, so I managed to doodle these during those times. The kids were always super excited to see these sketches, regardless of how little effort/time I put into them.

The first day, I doodled Doge.

Then I drew Gair.

And then since it was Hawaiian day at camp, I drew Pubby wearing Hawaiian wear. Even if this is incredibly out of character for him.

And then I had about 5 minutes or less and doodled Mar. For some reason the kids thought she was Greek, so I dunno, haha.

And I had the opportunity to visit iD Tech's corporate office while I was there. And in addition, I got to sign the wall there!

And these are tons of photos with my new friends/family! 

And lastly, some souvenirs from the kids at camp this week!
