Use Flameball

The start of some sketches from as a result of playing too much Dark Souls. EPIC game that's EXTREMELY HARD but so much fun at the same time. My boyfriend and I can't get enough of the game and how it makes us RAGE.

This is my guy's favorite boss, Quelaag (for obvious reasons seen in mere seconds of the link video).

Have yet to make it to this ridiculous boss but apparently as an attack, she does this.....alot.....

 Go buy this game, people. It WILL break you, mentally and physically.

The Black Swan Finale

My goodness, you don't know how proud I am over this piece. Could not have made it this for in this style without James' help and assistance throughout the entire semester!!  :)
This was my final assignment for my cartooning/caricature to put a character of choice into an environment. Did a caricature of Natalie Portman in her Black Swan role.

My professor loved it and said it was very "poetic"  :)

Purple Lady

Some of the better sketches from life drawing last Wednesday. There's a few because I had to leave early to finish up some finals. Done with my Tombo ink pen and a purple prisma color pencil.

Drill to the Heavens, ya'll!!

Entry for our club's drawing challenge this month. Had to incoporate robots, gender-bending, and/or hair. I did all 3 in this homage to the anime Gurren Lagann  :)

CLICK to enlarge and see!!
The mecha's there are our club's mascots geared up in Gurren Lagann style. The pilots in the cockpits there are my good friends are James (who helped me out ALOT on what to do with the BG) as Simon (goggles in bottom left), Garrett cross-dressing as Yoko (scarf in upper right), and Tung as Kamina (awesome orange tint glasses in upper right). And I'm the little mole there on top of James' head.

Red Panda day

Today I sketched Red Panda's. I think it's cuz I saw a Kung Fu Panda 2 commercial.....

This guy was inspired by all the Mario 3D-Land I've been playing and the tanooki raccoon suit you can transform into

Let's Go Camp for Our 4th!

WARNING: Mushy gushy lovey dovey BUT Sincere storyboard animatic with music coming up!! 
ALSO these boards were done in AUGUST....I have studied, improved, learned more since then haha

An anniversary gift that really shouldn't have taken THIS long...but hey, I am extremely glad that I finished this in time to work on another holiday gift for my man (one more planned accordingly to my schedule!!).

These are a set of storyboards of me and my boyfriend's camping trip we took to celebrate our 4th anniversary back on August 18th. The timing was finally done today with the free time Thanksgiving break has gave me. Some shots and drawings seem wonky YES since these were done way back in Aug-Sept. Just glad to also see lots of improvements in my sketchbook from then to now!!

Song: Plain White T's - Rythym of Love

BTW, my guy REALLY adored this gift, ignoring the fact that it was EXTREMELY late hehe

Cafe (Mall) Sketching

Instead of a cafe my friends and I went to the Brea Mall to get some sketching in for our day.

Warm-ups with my Tombi Ink pen and Prisma grey


These are some baby versions of Sarah's "FluffSkull" creature. She has drawn some of the adult figures but I decided to take a crack at younger ones  :)

Mushrooms and Cats

Wondering where those little Mushroom people came from in my new blog header? They were first paired up with my little AliCat here:

Magical Mushroom friends for a magical cat!!
This little magical cat has become sort of an artistic "muse" for me recently. She gets drawn up whenever I'm warming up to a much bigger project. Sarah inspired me with her magical critters to make up AliCat. The "Ali" portion refers to the Alicorns from My Little Pony (having both a unicorn horn and pegasus wings).

YEAH, I know. We're both weirdos. But hey, whatever gets me into a drawing mood at the start of the day.


This page of AliCats was practice for me and my Tombo Ink pen. AWESOME drawing tool.

Assignment for my character design class to design a LAME SUPERHERO. 
Meet Man-O-Pause.

Typical 24-25 yr old college guy: in-and-out of jobs, 1-2 classes a semester, gets laid maybe every 2-3 weeks. One party he meets a lady-friend that changes his life forever. Bitten by a radioactive woman. Now he has feminine powers from the neck down. Solves crime with his new-found powers at his campus.

Group Shot!!
More elephant characters!! This time it's Edwin with a little admirer there, trying to get a peek at what he's playing on his 3DS and his sister Cyndi, created by Michelle

Now that little ele-girl there......see, before Edwin, HE would've been a SHE and a cute one at that!! I was playing around with different genders for my main elephant character. My girl design was adorable BUT I just couldn't put a personality on her unlike Edwin, the shy introvert gamer fat kid.

Tons of Ele-fun

These are some of the final images for my 10-yr old elephant character for a Character Design class I'm taking.  We were set in groups and assigned a different family member individually.

He plays his 3DS there with his TRUNK you see....
So here we have extremely shy little introverted Edwin. Based him off the kids I would always see hanging by the Nintendo section at the Gamestop I used to work at. Also wanted practiced more of the retro no-line style that's currently in the illustration world (inspired by Brittany Lee's blog , Victoria Ying's , Megan's , XAV's , and even my good friend James')

Here are the 4 poses also assigned to show our character's personality. 

During the Final crit I was SO happy people were amused and caught on to that his eyes were super tiny and his glasses just magnified them. Also Gym class isn't exactly his strong suit....

Ponies: Take 2

Another round of colorful sparkly pretty ponies.
Drawing these guys really does balance my stress dealing with Perspective class....and plus I found some spare Prisma color pencils and I just had to create ponies with them  :D

The Bookworm of the show
Now for some fan-made ponies and silly names that my boyfriend bestowed upon them.
