Wild Blue WIP - Oulu and Korene
Still chipping away at this one - figured I'd combine characters into a single image as I went along to help give a sense of size comparison. 
On the right is Korene, an aerial race pilot and general pain in the ass. 
On the left is Oulu, my idiot alien son trying to be a rock star. 
Once I wrap up the work on these two, I'll get Dalton and Sumiko in there too. 

Each figure took about 20 minutes to sketch out on my Cintiq; still working on Oulu's color, but Korene took about an hour to rough paint. Obviously I'm still really shaky at this whole color thing. 
  • Listening to: AFI - The Leaving Song Pt 2
  • Reading: Traveller
  • Watching: Net-juu no Susume
  • Playing: VA-11 HALL-A Game+
  • Drinking: Dewar's whiskey
So a lot has happened in the past two years. 
2016 was a blur, but for the most part it was fine. Then November happened, and everything started to fall apart.
I don't remember most of December and January. I can recall the holidays, and working, but little else. 
In February something in my head finally gave way. I just broke. I'm on a treatment program for depression and anxiety now, and on the mend.
In March, I got over my own stubbornness and finally bought a car. 
I lost my job in May - laid off along with all of my coworkers from a facility we were told was no longer profitable. 
In June, I finally got the dental surgery I've needed for the majority of my adult life. 
From June to August, I took a sabbatical. It was the first proper holiday I've had in five years.
In September, I took a job with an engineering firm. It lasted until a the week of Thanksgiving. I'm unemployed again.
And now I'm here, working harder on my own creative projects than I have in a decade. And that makes everything else OK, in its own way. 
Cast prototypes for 'Wild Blue'
It's taken more time than I thought it would, but I'm finally starting to pull together all of the little notes and scraps of doodles written in the digital margins of my life together into something that might actually have a story to tell. What started out as a fan fic project may yet grow a setting and world of its own; either way, I've poured more of my creative energies into these four than anything else I've worked on in the past five years. While Elysium (which needs a new name at this point) still holds a place in my heart, Wild Blue is the way forward for me. 
More fanart, this time from Houseki no Kuni/Land of the Lustrous. Five minute gesture sketch in Clip Studio Pro. 
Do not trust that smile.
I've started doing a little fan art again, as I've been doing speed paint practicing; saves me the trouble of coming up with details as I'm working. 
These two adorable idiots are from Girls' Last Tour, a (currently ongoing) series from Fall 2017. A great show to watch if you need something goofy and a little introspective.

Digging the latest set of up loads. I'll need to take some time on each and comment.

It occurred to me earlier today that I haven't posted anything here in months, so. Yeah. None of this is new, except a few of the markerboard pieces.
I await your comments. :D
