CTN in a nutshell

Sorry to all of you amazing artists that had to go through this. Truly. I'm an incredibly shy person which makes me an incredibly awkward person at times. 
For real though, CTN was such a blast. I loved meeting everyone and becoming inspired by all the amazing talent present there!

Several Stories

 Lately I've been just sketching at the end of the day's work to unwind before heading to bed. I don't start with a story or characters, I just start to sketch whatever comes and let the story evolve. Here are a few.

These little orca bird guys came out of some of the scribbles that I did. I’m sure they’re some little native tribe in the northwest. And they all have things they like to do and jobs in the tribe, like a poet, or a magician, or a witch, or a street performer. But they have one common enemy, and that’s Beaky there. I’m thinking he’s some scary story to tell to their kids to make them behave, about how he comes and gobbles them all up if they don’t obey their parents. But then it turns out that he’s actually real and does start to steal and gobble up people of the tribe. 

I was gesturing from rodeos to loosen up for a project I’m boarding on and this story about a kid who comes to the West from London and a Native American mustang just kept forming. Boy is not a cowboy. Mustang knows this.

 These two are Little Tawa and Koyemsi. Tawa is a Sunface kachina with a habit of exploring and dragging his friend Koyemsi along. Koyemsi is a Mudhead Kachina who’s supposed to be a clown, but instead is introverted and has somewhat of a temper. Tawa helps to balance out Koyemsi’s melancholy nature while Koyemsi keeps Tawa out of trouble. Sometimes. 
Also featured is an Angak’china (Long-Haired kachina) and a variation of an Angwusnasomtaka (Crow Mother kachina).

These were just done for fun, but I would love to hear any thoughts or suggestions that you would have. One or all may turn into something in the future!

Various Fanart

Still doing the Pokemonathon over on Tumblr!
And a little Gravity Falls love as well.

A couple of pieces I worked on in between work and commissions. The first is a commission and the next were experiments with my new Monoprice tablet.

Catching Up

I'm pretty convinced that I am the worst Blogger updater ever.
But there is always time for change, right?
That time is now.
These are from a monthly focus I did a little while ago on big cats:

Most of my warm-ups nowadays consist of continuing the Pokemonathon over on Tumblr:

151 is a lot to go through, but it's been fun drawing them so far.
Here are a few of some recent commissions that I've done: 

A girl commissioned me to draw some of her critters for a post-apocalyptic/evolution-gone-wrong story she has. This guy was one of them. 
My friend Ashley also commissioned me to draw Quetzalcoatl for her. I love him, so this was so fun to draw!
These are just some recent sketches and things that I've done in-between portfolio work, commissions, and school work.

Some more Pokemon things that I've done with friends. There is this website floating around called Pokemon Fusion and you can get some crazy fun Pokemon combos to draw. My friends Kendall and Danielle challenged me to a draw battle, these are the results of my combos:

And then a Mew, for good measure. 

I discovered Motorcity. 

More Post because I missed drawing him. And he looks like he would hang out in the same world as  Lindsey's character Timothy.

Reality Not Included Volume 2 is coming out soon! I'm working on a comic for it featuring these two guys. We have an Indie-Go-Go going on right now, please support us! There is going to be a ton of great art and comics in this issue. Check it out!

Some shoes I painted for my friend Carson. 

A quick self-portrait speed paint for a warm-up.

A character of mine for a story that I've been developing. 
Sketchbook things coming soon!
