BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR MY BFF JILL. But no really, this was a birthday gift for my friend Dylan. I asked him to pick his top 3 favorite colors and top 3 favorite animals and this is what came out of it. The animals were Crab, English Bulldog, and Beaver.

I've been trying to push myself out of my comfort zone in recently by working faster and on things I don't normally work on. So, the "Design a Character" group on Deviant Art posted a challenge to come up with a weapon and then create a character inspired by the weapon. I don't do much weapon design or character design stuff in general, so it sounded like a way to work on something I usually don't do/avoid. This was a product of that challenge, I tried to work quickly, and work in colors that are a little lighter than my usual.

I've been trying to sketch more lately and I find abstract painting/sketching/just messing around with shapes and color to be really relaxing so I do it occasionally. So here's a random abstract sketch I did just messing around/experimenting.

Redid a piece I did in 2009 for fun. Really interesting to see the difference between now and then.
The guy's name is Kohl and he's a personal character from a story concept that has been kicking around in my head on and off for the last few years. I changed a lot in the new piece but the general concept is pretty much the same.
The look of the character has also obviously changed throughout the years.

These are some house concepts for a personal project I've been working on.
The one I chose to go with was also kind of a style experiment for me,
trying to simplify things, and let shapes speak for themselves without over-rendering everything to death.

Turn and Push
Abracadaniel from Adventure Time. I did this as kind of a not very serious piece just to get used to my cintiq and as a way to relax. I've been focusing a lot on animating and sometimes it's just nice to just work on something still.
