23/11, Princess Pants Character Sketches

Uh, yeah. There's no colour tests yet, but I'm thinking of having jinn to help the game advance. Plus a little doodle of the title character there, too.

21/11, Princess Pants Concept

Today was spent sketching up some concepts for Princess Pants, my project for the third year.

The idea is that she's a kickass crime fighting kid in a 2D platformer game. She's not actually a princess. Her crown is a pair of her dad's undies.

I've been looking at some cool games for research and I'm loving the style of MIMPI. I've no idea if its on iOS, but it's on android and it's pretty awesome. I think I'd like to create something like that.

Here's a screenshot of the game, and here's some sketches!

20/11, life drawing

Yesterday I went life drawing. As promised, here are some five minute sketches. I done a dumb and had no pencils, but I like the idea of everything being permanent anyway.

Oh my life, it's been a while since I updated.
Here's updates on Kemi and Yu concept pieces for Hungry Whispers, if there's anything I severely need to change, please let me know! I also did some life-drawing today. I'll put those up tomorrow.

14/11, Character Doodles

Today, whilst playing YuGiOh with my brother and boyfriend, I was doodling on the score sheet and made these.

10/11, Elephant

A little something for you. I've appeared to be inspired by my visit to West Midlands Safari Park.

9/11, Studies of Feet

Here's a few quick sketches of my feet from my new sketchbook.
Fun fact, I'm paranoid that if I cut my little toenail too small, it'll never grow back. It's always unnecessarily long.
This was actually from yesterday.(9/11) My phone was having a moment.

07/11, A New Sketchbook!


Today, I went to Paperchase and bought a gorgeous new sketchbook. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be used like that, but it's brown paper and beautiful, because most drawings on brown paper are. Again, I'm doing work that is in no way related to what I'm supposed to be doing, more fool me come Monday. Here's my drawing for today.



It's said that an artist never blames the tools, but damnit, that white pencil is broken the whole way through. Looks like I need to invest in some nice ones!

06/11, West Midlands Safari Park!

Today I went to the West Midlands Safari Park with my boyfriend. We got a whole bunch of reference materials and it was a generally lovely day out.

Highlights include feeding Eland, which were absolute whores for food, feeding giraffes, and seeing Callum try to stop a cow looking thing getting into the car with us.

Seeing Rhinos was weirdly upsetting. It's a shame to imagine that due to poaching, they face a very near extinction.

Back to the good bit, there were many animals, including goats. For some weird reason, I keep stumbling into goat things this week, so I've made a quick infographic to help people understand a little something about goats.



I thought it was having a good time being stroked, standing at my feet. Turns out, it was trying to eat my shoelaces.

04/11, Hungry Whispers Promo 2

Naughty Naughty, Chicken Balti!

What happened to once a day? I'm awful at daily things.

Update.
Here's a second part to Hungry Whispers Promo. Enjoy!

I was working on a whole bunch of ideas. Initially it started out in block colour, the background was the gradient. I realised the lines were way nicer, so I went with this. Then I noticedthere was a black thing in the corner. I went to get rid of it, and...


This happened! Luckily for me, it looks awesome.

I gave it a go splitting the character straight in half, but I kind of like the mystique going on in the diagonal one. It looks more creepy, and creepy is good.

The book binder happened by accident, too. When I colour inverted the initial sketch, I noticed it looked pretty decent. Add it in! Why not!
