Mixed Media Illustration

I did something different for this Concept Sunday and created a mixed media illustration. It started in my sketchbook, then I decided to add some enhancements in Photoshop.

Here's the final image of Yaguzi and Zandra!

I started out with a sketch in my sketchbook.

I fixed up some proportions and cleaned it up a little.

I went over the lines in pen and cleaned it up farther.

I added some simple shading with pencil and pen, making certain elements pop out more than others.

I added some base colors with colored pencil.

I went over the colors with marker.

Then I made the finishing touches on the traditional piece and added color to the background.

It felt like it still needed something, so I made some enhancements in Photoshop by brightening colors and intensifying them a bit.

Quickling Doodles!

Some suuuuper quick sketches!

I actually spent the majority of my lunch break eating lunch one day. So here's a super quick Lonny doodle.

The other night CF kept saying "perhaps" at the start of every sentence, and it was starting to annoy Ralphie while he was playing a game.

Finished Sketches

Some sketches that I spent some more time on the shading so they ended up looking more finished!

This was something that just came into my head when I was walking upstairs, thinking about what to draw. But anyways, a quick lunchtime sketch!

In one timeline, Yaguzi's an evil World Leader.

Lunch Break Doodles

Recent sketches from my lunch break!

When you're just trying to be nice... and yet it's not enough.

If Zandra were a party member in Persona 3, this is what her battle icon would look like.

Experimenting with Sizes!

These are some quick illustrations that I wanted to give a more finished look to than my regular sketches. I also played around with different sizes for them.

I wanted to play around with colored lighting, and I thought drawing a scene from the Bobolo River would fit perfectly! This is when The Nays first begin to realize that the spirits of the Bobolo River are playing tricks on them. 

When Rasake gets married, she sends out her invitations in video form, since most of her friends don't have permanent addresses that she can mail them to. Digital files send faster than physical mail between Worlds, anyway.

Dreaming About The Nays

Some recent dreams that I decided to draw!

I had a dream involving time travel, so naturally, Megumi and Clove were involved. It was playing this really intense music during this scene and I feel like I kind of need to make this actually happen in The Nays now.

The other night I had a dream that involved drawing Sarah, so I figured I would make the dream a reality.

Recent Gift Art

Here are some recent drawings I've done for my friends for their birthdays!

I drew my friend Hillary's character, Selene, for her birthday in mid-April. I thought her design was really cool and she drew her during Huevember this last year.

This one was for my friend Laura since her birthday was early May. This is her character, Gray.

Nona in the Smoke

It's been awhile since I've dedicated some time to gesture drawings since I've been so busy, but I decided to do that the other week. And from there, I made a finished drawing!

Here's the finished illustration!

And then the process gif.

As a bonus, here are all of the quick gestures I did in about 1-3 minutes each.

Recent Nay-A-Day Drawings

I haven't worked on my Nay-A-Day project in awhile, but here are some recent ones I've done in the past month!

Olivia is a talkative young woman who works well with kids and always volunteers to babysit her cousin Cassie's kids. She's constantly talking to her boyfriend Isaac, and even when they're apart, they're always in contact on the phone. She knows how to take control of most situations and is calm and collected whenever disciplining kids. She wants to have kids someday and is pursuing a degree in teaching. Olivia always brings over treats and games for the kids to play, so they generally enjoy her company. Living with her boyfriend Isaac, she's already much more successful than her father and ex-boyfriend who are both homeless and irresponsible with money.

Alistair is Amelia's strict father who often looks down on her. He has very high expectations for her, and when she doesn't meet them, he becomes extremely disappointed and critical. He treats her like a young child, even while she's in her 20s, and is extremely over-protective of her. Because of her financial situation, Amelia still lives with her father, so he takes this opportunity to express dominance and control over her life. He believes that she still must obey his every command and if she doesn't, he arranges for punishment. Alistair is very controlling and demeaning towards his daughter, because it makes him feel like he is in charge and has great power.

Amelia's Fancy Clothes

There are some points in my story that I have planned where Amelia dresses up, so I wanted to take some time to design what her clothes might look like when she does this. 

At first, I was thinking she might just wear the same clothes for both occasions, but I liked how both of these designs came out, so she's gonna switch it up! I did this kind of in a similar style to The Nays Clothes Project, but only with these two. I'm sure she gets tons of other outfits throughout the series, but I just wanted to focus on these two for now.

I also did some other concepts at first (not finished coloring), but I decided not to go with these ones.

Zandra and Murou's MMO Avatars

Zandra and Murou first met on an MMO, so I decided I'd design what their avatars might look like.

An idea for Zandra's!

An idea for Murou's MMO avatar, but still not crazy about it.

Nay Concepts

These are some recent concepts I've drawn! They were quicker, so I didn't break down the processes entirely, but I think they still came out pretty finished. It's been awhile since I've had time to draw for Concept Sunday, but these were fun!

I started a new Eventure that involves Scott and Rabiah's friendship. And this is a scene from the Eventure that I wanted to draw.

The Gek gives The Nays a tape recorder, and they have to press a button on the machine so it can send a message to The Gek. This is Chozu and Ralphie testing it out inside of their clubhouse.

Really Quick Doodles

Some recent lunchtime doodles!

I don't know who this is, but maybe a new bird-in-training?

A super quick doodle of Clove.

Quick Doodles!

Some recent sketches I've done, mostly as lunch break doodles.

I've never actually drawn Rabiah with a full smile before, so it was kind of hard to get this right. It's a rare sight, but she can actually smile.

A quick doodle of Ralphie I did during my lunch break.
