I created this character last week purely as a guilty pleasure – I just wanted to draw something fun without worrying about originality or her place in a universe. I ended up having a ton of fun with it, so don’t be surprised if a whole new project springs up around her. ;) I have a male counterpart for her planned next. (Look ma, I designed a gun!)
(PS: If you are some sort of social media savvy person who dwells in Tumblr land, you can find me there now too! Even though I don’t really know what I’m doing I think I can probably eventually figure it out.)
Or follow me on Facebook. :D

That is, the title of the project is “Two.” …and there’s also two character concept sheets right now.. but I assure you that that’s a coincidence.
New personal project. Some scifi after all that tribal. :P Firstly, a rework of the main character, Two. Also motorcycles.

Most of the things I’ve been painting lately are Christmasy or secret.
So, here’s some figure studies I did a bit back. And a crashed spaceship thing.
Also, I found this Real Life Kim story I drew like 5 years ago. I find it impossibly funny. Enjoy!

Sci fi girls to cleanse the palette.
Playing commercials on your skin is a good way to finance your new screen-skin body modification. Like tele-tubbies! But with more dystopia. ;)
So. Three things:
1. I have a whole big long list of things I’ve been needing to add to my portfolio to round it out.
2. I need something new and fresh to work on
3. I feel productive as shit lately
Therefore… I’m starting a new concept project. Tribal girls begone! Make way for… SPACE NOMADS! …or scifi nomads? Or glowstick inspired backpackers? Something along those lines, yet to be determined.
The project is tentatively titled “Home”, because.. that’s a topic that I’d like to explore. The idea of home is somewhat of an orbital pivot in my life (that is, that my existence, trials, tribulations, and triumphs all seem to revolve around the concept), and so I’d like to tackle it through art. Simultaneously, though, I want to do something in a completely different style than I have been working in and am used to working in.
So, these are just some an initial thumbs. I’m just barely beginning to delve into ideas, and it could go in a completely different direction from here (actually I realized once I was finished, as is typical timing for me, that it’s looking a bit too Tron-like for my tastes, so I’m already needing to steer it in a slightly different direction). But I’d like to go through the whole process, concepting the general feel of the world, characters, customs, environments, weapons, etc., and then compiling it for my portfolio. I’m planning on working up an art bible/style guide as well. So more updates coming soon!
In the meantime, humble beginnings:
In completely unrelated news, I finally got around to learning how to make a GIF the other day, so here’s a compiled progress gif of this piece (you might have to click to make it go):
