It’s been a while since I’ve drawn wings. Continue reading Grounded, 2018, In Progress Pics
Lo (lol) and behold! A new piece of art!
I don’t really know where to start on this one. It kind of came about when I was doodling up a bunch of ideas I had. Sometimes I’ll jot them all down into their own individual files and then pick at them one by one, or sometimes I’ll pick at a bunch of them all at the same time. Sometimes they’ll get entirely forgotten, or I just won’t be into the idea enough to get cracking on it. Continue reading Low, 2018, In Progress Pics
This new work I made rather quickly. I had seen a few gorgeous pictures of some albino folks online. I often look at the albino color palette of skin, given my character Azra (and his counterpart Falco) are both leucistic, meaning they suffer from partial loss of pigmentation, mostly in their skin. Anyway, I like drawing bugs a lot, and I often see a flutter of bright white moths around my front porch light, so I got to thinking about the contrast of white on white and then black.
This picture started as an Inktober doodle!
Basically the idea behind this picture is simple enough… Azra’s an admitted animal lover. He’s not really super open about this fact, simply because, as an animal lover, people would expect someone who feels so passionately about animals to probably have a bunch of them, right? But Azra doesn’t own any. For the simple fact that it breaks his heart every time they die, and most animals don’t live very long, as opposed to Azra who lives, well as a vampire, forever. So he’s already dealing with the heartache of humans having relatively short lifespans in comparison to his own, but all these mini-heartbreaks along the way of something as selflessly loyal as a dog he just can’t stand to stomach.
Well, it looks like the artist calendar is finally dead. I’m not entirely upset about it — I mean, yeah, I’m sort of bummed that the project didn’t come together this year as it would have normally, but I’m slightly glad of it. It’s a bit stressful and chaotic trying to chase after files and get things settled sometimes.
