Ahh wow quite a few asks this morning- thank you!
Vibrant colours are a weak area for me and I would like to be more versatile, but I am glad people find the softer desaturated tones appealing too!
Unfortunately I lack too many sketches that portray the things you compliment me for currently, but here’s another for my answer+art combo
Ah wow that is an interesting question- do I have any tips?
I don’t really go through any set process, I start in all kinds of places from visual traits, personality concepts, creature designs or features I want to portray- sometimes for a prompt or specifically to fill a role in a story…
I guess it just goes from finding one of these places that really jumps to you and rolling the ball from there- pushing the design and concept both in what defines their idea at the core, the logic and environmental factors that play into personality and image, and then the extremes of their personality. A lot of my characters tend to develop themselves through interacting with other characters and imagining scenarios I guess.
Not sure how helpful this is though, since I haven’t actually had this conversation about processes with other people so far!
But the joke is if nobody can interrupt you it will never end.
Maybe next livestream I have, if I do one any time soon, I will force any attendees to listen to it for as long as I am not distracted by other shenanigans
But really it’s not the same if you can write it out and people can scroll through the bullshit
Just a short post-con update for everyone who saw me there or found this page through my business cards!
I had a super fun time at Oz ComicCon (Melbourne) and I had some fantastic talks with a lot of people! Your support and encouragement really mean so much to me and I got some awesome commission prompts too!
I’m so sorry I was a bit gross behind the table this year as my con-cold started clawing its way in on friday- but I promise anyone I owe art to it won’t be too long for me to mail it all out <33
