So I'm officially doing concept art, working on 'Marian' with Infinite Ammo now, and the uber talented Alec Holowka 8D And Katie De Sousa and Liem Nguyen and lots of other impressive and fancy names haha. I'm REALLY excited about it, so go check it out!
It's been QUITE a while. They were right when they said graduates get stuck in jobs aside from illustration so they don't starve, and end up not doing art. Well I'm trying to NOT do that. Don't work for inventory companies. They SAY they're easy, but really they eat your life with 15 hour days counting grocery stores. Anyway! I've gotten a few potential illustration type jobs that I'm working on!
For now I did a new promo piece out of sheer random inspiration that came from nowhere. Hopefully that will happen more often!

Also! I am working on a sculpture!!! what of you say? well here is a preview:

We plan on pursuing the project further, but for now, here are some preliminary character designs.
