Old Forests

Not dead yet! I just don't have a proper internet connection. I moved to  anew place and haven't hooked it up, but I think September will be when I'm all good to go! For now, something quick I painted last month.  Just trying to do things without an under drawing.

Azrael Amai: The Fire Queen

Azrael Amai, another character you meet later on in my comic Eighth Sin. She's cousins with the ice queen, Inada Amai and rules the lands down south near the equator.

Like her cousin counterpart, she controls fire, lava, heat waves/air, anything that could be hot. It is said that anyone who gets close to her will get warmer and wamrer; lay a hand on her, and you risk combusting into flame. 

No one can really get near her aside from her cousin (and other elemental aspects), but the last time they did that they covered half the province in mist and fog.

Yeaaaars ago, Kris had leant me her character Azrael to use in my comic! She's changed appearances a bit (and made into a human) but the basis of this design was on Kris's character, so I wanted to make sure that was known :)

U'Chaji, Bounty Hunter

Another character from my comic Eighth Sin, U'Chaji. She has a last name, but I haven't figured it out yet. :)

She's not a main character so to speak, but she plays a part in the story. Lots of characters pop in and out and get mixed up either briefly or for extended periods along with Samara's adventures.

U'Chaji keeps to the Drylands, away from a lot of elven civilization, though one or two small camps do exist in the desert. Most however, prefer the lush forests or jungles to reside in.

She's been through a lot as you can see. I'm happy with how I drew her pose. :)

Super Noir'io Bros.

A commission I finished for my friend, Ryan!

He wanted Mario, Luigi, Toad and Daisy set in a detective office, with sort of a film noir' kind of look to it.  He also wanted to keep it subtle (other than their faces :) ) on who they were in the scene, so I've sparsly added a few things to kind of hint at the world.

I think my favourite is the Bowser Kabuki mask :)

Twenty-Five Essential Expressions!

I remember seeing this floating around DeviantArt many times and thought it was a great exercise.

If I made my own, I bet I would of missed soooo many expressions!  The original template can be found here:  --->

This is Samara, the lead character in my comic Eighth Sin.  This is just the roughs before colouring and tidying up/fixing a few things, but thought this was reaaaaally fun to do. It's also good to reference as i draw my comic!
