Hi everyone, hope you’re having a nice Wednesday!
Here’s some character sketched from a short I’m working on this month.
They’re inked rather sloppily in brushpen to save time and give me more freedom to figure out white/black balance. Also, Trey and Uni are siblings and the only two humans left alive.
I realized this week that I have been all but dead the past couple of weeks.
Well the skinny is that I moved to downtown Mpls. I just recently acquired internet again and I’m getting around to settling down a bit.
The little projects I’ve been puttering out have been put on hold to play around with this larger illustration. It’s a study in brush inks and has taught me a lot about inking.
Working on this piece makes me see just how desperately bad I need a scanner in my life.
Closing Commissions, Opening Society 6
So I’m closing commissions for the summer in order to work on a few comics.
I’m opening a Society 6 shop to sell some landscape prints and decals.
Below are the first two examples
I think they make snazzy phone and laptop decals.

AND NOT TO MENTION, you will be helping me cover tuition this Fall.
Cause I need like $800 by August.
Thanks for reading!
Poor post apocalyptic Finn
was a warm up doodle and then it wasn’t
Quick character sketch for a possible comic idea.
Work in process vine test
It’s kind of fun and definitely challenging to choreograph all the vines, it’s taking me a lot longer than I anticipated.
As a non animator I really have a ton of respect for people who do this for a living. There is just so much to think about, so many hours spent tweening, so many hours in post production, and this is just by hand! On my latest count I was at 427 layers in photoshop and this is just a 30sec animation.
Anyone who thinks it’s easy should give it a try, it’s not easy but it’s very rewarding to see your work move. Even if it’s all choppy like mine!
So I inked the cottage
And Tumblr did a good job of making it look like crap
fullsize it yo!
This was a bit of too much fun on my part. It was only meant to be a test for dry brushing, see it? Right there, in the willow and shadow of the fence, haha that’s it! It was refreshing to realize that I can still work in some semblance of perspective. I also used this project to work on getting some variation in foliage on the environment. I have a nasty habit of doing these little cloud like bumps for all my nature-y stuff.
