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.
