Illustration Friday: Liquid

It's that time again!

For this week's topic I started doodling some water splashes in photoshop and it eventually evolved into a fish. I've been studying Korean lately (I'm half Korean but never fully learned the language), so the Korean word for 'fish' or '물고기' (mulgogi) came to mind, which literally means water (mul/물) meat (gogi/고기), which I find pretty amusing. I thought this might make a nice book/cd cover or something, so I added my name at the bottom as the author.

What's this, updates?

Yikes, it's been a while since I updated, and unless you follow me on tumblr, dA, or the facebooks you might be in the dark, so here's some (semi) recent work:

 Oooh, a shiny tiger. 

A made up book cover for my portfolio. I've been toying with a bit more of graphic, retro style recently. I kinda dig it. But what's with that funny name? (hint: it's an anagram.)

This one was a lot of fun to do. I LOVE night scenes, and I also have a ridiculous obsession with string lights/lanterns, so sort of a win-win here. Besides, ramen is awesome. 
And as a little bonus a process gif! A bit too much of a jump between the first two frames, but oh well.

Illustration Friday: 'Storm'

A little somethin' somethin' for Illustration Friday, which I've neglected for a while. The theme is 'storm'.

Giants Under the Sun

Messin' around with some more environments...

Admittedly this one is pretty Roger Dean-inspired.

Here's the process-  as you can kind of see I just sort of made it up and changed things as I went along.

Journey to the Edge of the World - with process!

A recent illustration - mostly experimenting with colored lines and backgrounds.

Process GIF! Usually I'll draw the line art first but sometimes it's fun to go backwards.

Foxes (aka Autumn Eternal)

Okay, this one's kinda late on here.

But hey, check out the inks, pencils, and thumbnail:

I totally forgot to do a coloring process, sorry! The coloring here was really simple though, so I suppose you're not missing much.

Some new (and not so new) art, and the Pokemonathon

I realize I've neglected this blog quite a bit in favor of DA and Tumblr (hey, it's rough keeping all these things up  to date) so here's a little look at what I've done in the last few months.

First off, I've been participating in a little illustration challenge which is the Pokemonathon over on Tumblr. I thought it'd be fun to do in my free time. And If you think my idea of fun just sounds like a lot of extra work, well, you're probably right. Here's the first 9:

And here's a couple other recent arts:

I should probably mention that I meant for this blog to be more about process and progress, which I've been forgetting to do lately.. I know, I'm terrible.
