Zero Escape

Alice, Clover and Zero Jr from Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward. Added some interim versions from photoshop cuz why not.

'm a huge fan of 999, the previous game in this series, as well as the Infinity Series made by he same creators. All of them are visual novels with dark, nonliner stories that explore concepts of time, abnormal psychology, human resonance, telepathy, and trust, and perceptions of reality. Really good stuff.

If that sounds cool and you have a DS, try out 999. As for the infinity series on PC, I'd go with Remember11.

Adventure Time

 Hooray! The new art desk I got last weekend has been pretty successful. Just seeing it at the end of the living room reminds me to draw. Here's what I've done the last few days.

My sweetie and I have had these mice for several weeks now. Almost immediately I began thinking of the inevitable day when they leave on an epic fantasy adventure.
Note: Objects named Violet are smaller than they appear.

Timid Lily is the healer, brave Violet is a hammer warrior (wearing red to draw aggro) and sneaky Ivy is a thief. And, no, I didn't make them costumes in real life but they do have a pirate ship.

My color work with markers is still shaky. I don't like the muddiness and lack of color balance.
But it was super fun getting in some practice!

I just finished Scourge, a Star Wars novel by the uncomparable Jeff Grubb...who happens to sit in the desk across from me at work. I like how these turned out, even though Zonnos should probably look a little less smart.

For the first time I'm really relating to hutts as characters. And his main character (human, not hutt) is a relatable, almost nerdy jedi. I loved the book, especially the characters, the whole way through. What can I say? Mr Grubb is good at what he does.

When I read really good books I tend to picture how I'd draw the characters and scenes, but I seldome do more than rough pencil doodles. I've been getting back into reading in the last few months and it felt really good to draw what I was reading while I was reading it. I recommend it!

My sweetie wasn't a fan of how I left the top of the tree ambiguous before, so I gave it the same treatment as the lower part and added greyscaling. I prefer the original because I wanted the whole mechanically lined tree and organic metal contrast. But both versions exist with the power of the internet, so why not! Trees are fun anyway.

Doodled this last night while watching TV. Today I ended up getting a migraine and coming home early, which sucked, but after a bunch of sleep and painkillers I started feeling better and threw some inks on it. This thing is a bit weird and rough, but I'm just happy to be drawing again. Drawing is awesome!

Sketch Club on iPad

Switched On Lotus

Is it bad form to post different color versions of the same sketch?
Well, honey badger don't care.



My lines, hubby's colors.

Drawn while in QA testing the first new year's event for GW1, year of the pig.

Shori from Fledgling, as I imagine her had Miss Butler been able to continue writing about her.

                                          Another Anpanman throwdown.

Mixed Bag

Here's a dump of random older stuff.

Testing Mario Golf with my left hand, drawing this with my right.

I am told this picture proves I've never really been in a men's room.

Drawn on the back of a time card while working at Nintendo.

Anpanman throwdown with David Rutabaga Linder.
His pic was better!
