Posting the things I've scanned for Tumblr, so this isn't my entire sketch book or anything. I figured I'd put mini-dumps here and there, since I'm starting to scan more for other sites than this one.
So, I guess if you want to see these things ahead of time, check my Tumblr.
Concepts for Estrella, a character for a children's story in Creative Writing that I'm still trying to figure out. The basic story is that she wants to become a star (literal star), until she learns about the size of the universe and begins to feel insignificant. Then... SOMETHING, some kind of mystical-but-not-really-because-I-don't-
want-to-suggest-that force remedies those thoughts.
Like I said, working on it.
Have I ever posted Fritty here? Yes, no? Okay, I consider Fritty to be my first original character, even though I hesitate to use the word "original." He was heavily based off a Pikachu knock-off I made. (Basically Pikachu painted brown with black stripes and given a machine gun and a puffy tail. Yeah, don't ask.) Despite not really developing much, I still love the little guy, as he represents an important step in the evolution of my art. This is my first time drawing him in a very long time, since once I started to stray from my anime-phase, which he is linked to in some ways, I drew him less and less. So a bit of a redesign here, just in the eyes and markings. He used to be far more cartoony and stupid looking.
Also, another character, this one I assume your recognize, Josephine the Pirate Queen. I've been reworking her to fit a children's story (in poem form) while also being accessible to an adult audience. Or perhaps making her an adult character accessible to the younger audience. I have no idea. Again, Creative Writing is a part of this.
Big difference here is her hair. It's less afro-y when she's younger, and becomes rounder as she gets older. I've always struggled with drawing this character, so I'm glad I sort of have a grasp on her now. My favorite is the sketch of her and the rat - I just love the shading.
What, you thought I'd do a sketch dump and NOT include some LinkxZelda sexy times? Please.
This started off as a rather innocent sequential kiss study (lack of clothes explained by the fact that I just didn't FEEL like it, kay?) but evolved into something less innocent. If you want to read it properly, start in the middle, go down left, right, up, left.
To be honest though, it actually turned into something else: a hand and movement study. When it got to positioning the bodies, I thought about how the hands would move, which is why it turned sequential (which was not my original intention). Though anatomy is kind of shot, I do sort of like the awkwardness of the positioning, like it was unplanned.
