I’m working on a commissioned piece for a friend. She wanted a nautical themed family plaque to hang in her home, and since I’m all about nautical designs because of my mermaid book, I was excited to work on this.
This is the first-pass design for the piece. I’ll eventually render out the rope border and move some of the type around so it lines up correctly, but this is the basic idea. Once she approves it, I’ll work on some comps to figure out the color scheme.

Here’s another recent commission for fellow classmate and CCAD graduate Sarah Buzzard. Ryuko and Senketsu from Kill La Kill, in their berzerk form.

As soon as I saw this episode, I knew I would end up drawing that creature someday. Another commission I had an absolute blast working on.

I could go on all day about how much I love Kill La Kill and why I think its one of the best animated series ever, but space is limited. Suffice to say that the show has an ensemble of my favorite female characters of all time. The show’s got humor, its got action, its got creativity, its got imagination, its got bloodshed, its got heart. A very unique and artistically bold piece of animation.

This is the AWESOME commission I got from my illustration classmate and friend who I have to blame for giving me the final push to watch Kill la Kill (with no regrets). I think he still has some commission slots open, so you should definitely check out his work!

I just can’t get over her expression, I love it so much. It’s like she showed up late to the party asking, “Am I overdressed?”

Thank you again, Evan! This is going up on my wall.

004: Dark
Continuing the 100 Theme Challenge. This is a two part piece of Light and Dark. Light version.
I just finished playing A Link to the Past, so when I saw the next two themes on my list were Light and Dark, I knew I had to do something with the two worlds. This is the accompanying piece to the Light image. Now our young hero is uncertain if he can really do this after entering the dark world. I remember when I was playing the game and first traveled to the dark world, it was overwhelming because I was suddenly thrown into the fray of enemies. I imagined Link would’ve had a similar experience.
I didn’t spend as much time on this one so the Light version is more successful, but I just wanted to play around with the palette. Sorry for any inaccuracies. I’m not an expert.

I just finished playing A Link to the Past, so when I saw the next two themes on my list were Light and Dark, I knew I had to do something with the two worlds. So here is our young link, fresh from rescuing the princess early in the game and ready to take on the world and retrieve those pendants. I also wanted to stick with the original limited palette in the game, so that’s why Link’s hair is pink. :p

The second selkie sketch I did a few weeks ago ended up being selected for the contest! I’m excited to see the final printed book. Pre-orders are open now, and you can find out more information about the book here!
I’m finally getting around to working on the finished piece, so here I am in the process of transferring it to a canvas. I changed the background and the light source to create a better mood and composition.

002: Love
Continuing the 100 Theme Challenge, I wanted to do a play on the traditional idea of love. I have a guilty pleasure in that I love all things tentacles: monsters, sea creatures, jelly slime ones, whatever. They’re fun to draw and just super fun in general.
I wanted to do something more suggestive than I normally draw. Had a lot of fun drawing the composition for this sketch and working out some digital color for kicks. This is the result of a summoning spell gone wrong. Or right? :p

ayarnandaleg:

Equestria Girls: Twilight Sparkle Status: $250 (In-Stock). Available on eBay. 
Made with acrylic yarn, plastic and metal buttons, felt, fleece, various cotton fabric blends, lace, ribbon, beads, thread and polyester stuffing.
Approximately 7” x 12.5” x 21” (18 cm x 32 cm x 53 cm).
The pricing reflects the materials and immense amount of time I put into creating her. Twilight is a limited edition doll that is entirely hand-made. The skirt is machine stitched, the shirt, socks and shoes are hand-stitched, and the vest was knitted from scratch. She is a one-of-a-kind doll that will not be replicated, so this is the only one for sale, ever.

001: Introduction
I’ve always wanted to do the 100 Theme Challenge on deviantART (Variation 2), and long ago I tried but only got four complete before I gave up. Now that I no longer have a strict academic schedule to make sure I draw frequently, I’m taking it upon myself to make sure I do. I plan to post this once a week on Monday, but there’s no guarantee I’ll actually stick to that of course. I can certainly try!
* * * * * *
At the suggestion of one of the illustration professors, I’m working on more character interactions and environments. I rushed the background because I just want to get a feel for drawing again and I have several projects I need to complete. But I had a lot of fun working on the two figures. Inspired by this awesome blog!
