Fun_Creep_I


Here are the actual inks. This looks so neat in person.

Mixed G-Pen and Sakura microns, especially for the super-fine hatching. So fun. Decided against the tears since they were a little much.

Fun_Creep_P


Possibly my favorite piece of 2015...I wanted to draw something really scary for Inktober, but couldn't quite fit it into the schedule.

Anyway, I knew I wanted to use a lot of black, but was on the fence about drawing someone crying.

And here's the final piece (pencils and inks and process GIF).

The technical goals here were to do a fully-colored Inktoberling, especially getting fuller use of the wider range of skin tones I'd recently picked up, though still kind of limited to light-skinned characters.


Just before final touches. I also wanted to see how delicate I could go with the G-Pen on eyes, and to how loose I could get on "live" (meaning no planning or pencils) background elements.

Continuing from last time, I wanted her to look like she was rooting hard for Yale, they were winning comfortably, and then they just managed to lose, right at the end. Like this is when she has just realized it's over. A different kind of horror for Inktober, you see.

Difficult to imagine Yale choking at the last minute, I know.

I kept listening to this album a lot recently and wanted to draw a sporty kind of "Classic Yale" type girl, like the preppy ones you see in magazines and on TV, you know?

Fun_Rainbrella


I love rain, and when it's inconsequential.
I've been trying to figure out a gamer girl character.


I figure she wears one of these satchels.
This probably influenced a later design, now that I look at it again.

Hare_Tee.Hurry


A sketch for a failed T-shirt design. Did maybe 100 sketches in total. Fun.

Stone obvious they weren't going to go with anything, so just went wild.

And surprisingly it wasn't this version that hit harder, though I love that one, too.

Anyway, pretty happy with this one, kinda wanted to go in deeper, but the primary goal was just working on getting a subtle background to set the mood, like you're stuck in her head, just as useless.

The reason for the somber mood was to fit a song that just got stuck in my head and rang with a certain clarity of late.

Listened to it a bunch but it never really hit as hard (if at all!) before realizing how helpless the speaker is.

You just can't help.

Wanted to draw not just a reluctant hero, but a useless, self-defeating one in a dismal setting.

Fun_TurkeyTax


PhotoJamming this into my favorite restaurant in Tokyo.

The text is a play on how similar the words sound and appear for meaninglessness jibba-jabba, gobble-gobble-gobbldygook, in Spanish and JP.

And plain version, hey.

I wanted to draw something for Thanksgiving that had a play on the hand-turkey thing.
