Fun_BeefyZeeGang


Found a box of BFZ laying around--literally the box, no cards!--and thought I'd pen it up with a pen that was up in that pen place.

Lucky Friday the firteenf.

Fun_GoodMourning


Saw a photo of Audrey Hepburn, was it?, with some other famous person, and thought it'd be great pose to study for our final piece for Inktober '15. Now that I think about it is a nice companion to this piece.

Z isn't rich, but he manages to get some classier costumes every now and then, I've noticed...Nyao can just make up whatever, though...or does she just buy them herself? Make them herself? I've always wondered about that, how that works...

Always feels a bit empty after Inktober. I used to hate inking, but now it's pretty relaxing. Sometimes even pulse-pounding.

But never boring or a chore. Not scary.

This was my first try drawing a merfolk, but none of that Ariel stuff.

Boring.

Fun_BunHun


A rabbit-based character for Inktober '15, inspired by the moonfolk design from Kamigawa.

Hun's violent about carrots, her weapon, dish, and treat of choice.

Big Rick the Turtle uses giant chopsticks in battle, though he's more support.

Season with some charming Gruul flavor.

Inks and pencils perusable.

Drawing a rabbit-based chef-ish character for Inktober 15. With a turtle-y sidekick.

But it's her show.

She's the star.

She is the moon.

Fun_Morphine


One of my first "alters" was a study on a morph overlay, though the costuming and design are mine.

Just seeing what these super chunky markers can do...they're not terribly easy to use, but I did find a nicer brand since.

Fun_Merfina


My favorite pattern, stripes, on an unfamiliar subject, merfolk, for Inktober '15.

Also more Great Wave riffing here in the water-power effect thing. This is more my speed, when it's considerably subtler than a sledgehammer.

As for not my speed, the dueling background here has full detail at front and then becomes suggested as you go back. I'm trying to get more comfortable with using large chunks of black, but losing detail is tough.

Fear_Twitler


This was an experimental comic based on a Magic news item that made me think about Bill Burr, actually.

And as I look at it now, it makes me think of the recent mini-controversy from Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch about Bugs, Thugs, and harmony, or lack thereof.

Fun Facts: I traced my own hand for this, Thanksgiving style! I liked striving for minimalism here, as I tend to loathe not going all out...practicing restraint when it comes to art is something I associate with weakness, which is itself probably a weakness of mine.

Easter Eggs: It's made strictly of black, white, and red; thumb is downward.

Fun_FishFoo


A piece from my first Inktober run, in 2014, to get used to the G-Pen.

I was subtly inspired by that famous shot of Sora from the Kingdom Hearts booklet, plus a little Misty from Pokemon.

I don't play video games much, not since high school, but loved poring over the booklets of the games we had.

Ocarina of Time was probably the coolest.

Pencils for an old Inktober piece. I associate this piece with Conley Woods because I was binging on his podcast around this time.

Hare_Tok.Ultimatum

And our final Hareruya player card, this one for Kenji Tsumura.

Fun Facts: He's famous for the card Cruel Ultimatum, it seems (wasn't really plugged in during Alara block cuz college), so they asked to put him in that card. I met him at the Born of the Gods prerelease, but he didn't know I was the guy who did the piece. We were formally introduced later.

Here's the background. See also inks and pencils.

In case you want to know how I did against him, I tried to target his hydra with Retraction Helix, he kindly indicated that's probably not wise, I tried targeting my own guy, he kindly indicated that's probably not wise, I waited until next turn for the summoning sickness to wear off. Long story short, he won.

Easter Eggs: Chicken drumstick and McDonald's fries.

Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch is minutes away, so thought it'd be a nice time to throwback to an ancient Hareruya piece, a player card for Kenji Tsumura. The other two in the set are here and here.

I remember time was tight on this one, so went for cel-shaded rather than fully painted on this one, though we started with a pencil base.

Drew this Inktober '15 piece of Shota Yaso'oka from a photo right around the Pro Tour Battle For Zendikar, I believe.

More rejected sketches from that one project.

This was the first in the "Gothic" series, and started the motif of a female wizard and her mysterious rival. Everybody dies in the end. Spoiler.

Shout out to Harkness Tower. And Ravnica mountains.

Our little hipstrix for Inktober '15.

I miss Yale dearly.

Constantly.

There is nothing like it.

"I'd rather be miserable here than happy anywhere else."

And now I use my degree to assist-proofread parts of business cards.

Wanted to draw something reminiscent of the old days at the Yale Herald.

Everyone was a hipster, especially the girls.
