Conrad the Cat

I had the pleasure of taking on a commission for a friend where I turned their adorable housecat into a chibi. I'm very happy with how these turned out, and now without further ado, I introduce to you, Conrad the Cat!

365 Day Project Complete

2016 - Day 367: (<- I derped on the counting along the way and did 2 extra days ;P)
This completes my 365 day challenge, and I have to say that I'm relieved. Thank you so much to everyone who has followed along, liked my work, commented, reblogged, reposted, or even just dropping in to take a glance every once in a while. I truly appreciate the support and cannot thank you guys enough! <33

This year long challenge has been a difficult one, and at the end of the year, even though I accomplished my goal, I'm kind of... looking back and feeling unhappy about it. I feel like a lot of the days I rushed through work just to have something to share with you guys and that it didn't really benefit me or you in the end. So, with that being said, I am ending this challenge here, and setting myself a new goal. I want to work on less pieces at a time, to give each one more love and attention, and more specifically to complete 1 fully rendered piece (in any style) every month that I am proud of. I think this will allow me to not only work on finetuning my skills in the areas I want to improve, but I think it will also make me happier with my own work. We are our own worst critics, and I am trying to get out of that self-depricating rut because whenever I fall in my work suffers. So that's just no good. Gotta stop that. And your support, and my lovely husband's constant encouragement, is what helps me get out of that state of mind and looking forward to providing you guys with more content to enjoy. So thank you thank you thank you. Onwards and forwards into the new year!

Character Concept: Cybernetic Sniper

2016 - Day 266:
I had a lot of fun designing some characters today, and one of those was this lovely lady! She is a cybernetic sniper, but with all she's been through, who knows what else she's proficient in?

If you are interested in 'adopting/winning' this concept and the personal use rights to this design & art piece, tell me a story about her in the comments below! She was designed in mind to become a Shadowrunner (RPG game Shadowrun), so tell me what got her there, why she keeps going, and maybe what her endgoals are. Bring this character to life.

Myself and StrikingCrayon, will select our favourite entry as winner at the end of the month.  

The owner of this design is now u/AngryDonkey123

This is my new Hardline Style that I've been developing, and I think I've finally sorted out my pricing for it, so expect to see a new page with all the details and order forms in my Special Projects within the next day or two if you wanted to see your character drawn in this style!  

Character Portrait: Gibford Miller

2016 - Day 258:
This piece is long overdue, and as is often the case, after a long time of a piece sitting still I will scrap it and redo it from scratch, and that's exactly what I did here. I redid the entire portrait in my new style, which I have named 'Hardline Style' (because I like labelling/sorting things for sake of tidiness and order).
But  I digress... Here is the ever-curious Gibford Miller, whom departed from his world amidst a mystery full of rats, magic, demons and sinister plots. Gibford Miller is a character owned/played by u/Rokkos, in the one-shots consistent universe of a D&D setting named Mertoth, which you can find more information about here! Come play with us!

As a bonus for those of you who saw the initial portrait that was being made, here is a small side-by-side. I was really unhappy with how it was coming out painted/lineless (as you can see I only got through the top half of him), so it just sat there forever and a day until I came across it today and decided it would be perfect to re-envision in my new style. 


2016 - Day 257:
I'm trying to define my cartoon-y/comic-y style, and I think I am right where I want it to be here. A few things were messier than expected, but I think if I do a few more pieces like this I will be comfortable offering this style up to you guys for commissions! I already have so many ideas for characters that would look amazing in this sort of style. 
((PS. Might need to come up with a better name for this style x.x))
