What would I do without you.

Not much this time, just a small sketch dump of a bunch of things I've been labbing out. Been in a bit of a rut lately but hopefully it'll blow over soon.

Tried to design edgy magical girls but ended up just making them edgy girls.

First sketch

Their names are: Rose Heart and Rumble Heart, there's going to be a third and fourth girl potentially but I still haven't figured them out yet. Also not quite settled on these designs either.

Thank you! I'm not liking the color palettes on the character, they're too similar to existing characters and Rose Heart's colors just don't mesh well. Back to the drawing board, though I did manage to sketch the third character, Rifle Heart!

Spoiler

That completes the first Trio as a part of this design exercise. I'm thinking of naming this concept project either Angelic Brave or Heart Song, or something like that. I wanted to get away from the sci fi and medieval stuff I usually draw and try something a bit more campy but with my own personal spin on it. Completed versions coming soon!

I know the feeling of trying to break out of a niche. I guess that's why I'm simultaneously working on tarot of my (human) friends and also some anthro stuff, just to keep myself on my toes.

I still see some of those sci-fi/medieval elements going on in parts of these designs, but you're definitely starting to separate. What is your process for exploring that new territory? Because usually I'll look at a bunch of references of stuff more "different" than what I do and sketch some of the common trends or like, go along the first two rows of images on Google and sketch them to get the feeling of what makes them different.

Heyooo long time no post! Been busy with a lot of stuff between February and now, but I'm back after taking a long break from art. I've been drawing as much as I could when I had time but I hit a pretty hard plateau and was feeling pretty down about my art and what I was doing for a while (plus some other life problems). Finally sorted it all out, and after taking a long break from art I've caught some good momentum!

After a long period of just experimenting and practicing, here are some of my more recent works! There was a lot of stuff I produced but most of it was just shooting in the dark, these are the pieces I'm most proud of so far.

Some character designs for a fully coloured comic, the characters share a colour palette because they are sisters:
Spoiler


Some older WIPs I'm hoping to go back to and finish when I have the time:

My most recent piece, a custom decal of Elphelt Valentine I'm going to be putting on my arcade stick for when I go to EVO this year!

Spoiler

That's it for now, I'm hoping to get back into the swing of posting regularly when I can!

Love the pants on the girl with the big gun, a nice overall design.

Man if someone like you can get down in their art then the road is truly endless.

These are awesome stuff though. Just love how you can really add character to your well characters and still keep up that crisp pro coloured look. Great stuff, and welcome back to the fray. Keep at it man!
