I decided Wriggle Nightbug is my favorite Touhou because bugs and androgyny. Also, some of my favorite fanart has been of this character, and I think she (he? they?) has a really great character design.
Here’s my most recent project—a mini comic which we could only draw using Ed Emberly’s symbolic language. It was an exercise in how much you could convey with simple shapes. It was a lot of fun to do, and actually the simplistic style appeals to me a lot—I might go back to it sometime!
The story is based on a Coyote tale from the Karuk of northern California. Thanks, Coyote, for lending me your story.
Hello everyone! I realized I’d never posted this online, so here it is. This was done between November and December of 2013 for a mini-anthology with my classmates Reilly Hadden, Anna McGlynn and Hannah Ratblood. It’s the last part of a continuous story about a town plagued by psychic disturbances after a meteor lands right in the middle of main street, so it might not make much sense on its own. But perhaps the Moon Rock anthology will be reprinted…and put on sale??? WHO KNOWS!!
I don’t think the second chapter is online, but if you’re curious: here is the first chapter, and here is the chapter that precedes mine.
Now that it’s half a year old, I can see a lot of flaws in it. But there’s no point in dwelling on it when new comics are waiting to be made!
Well it’s the end of a school year for me. This is the cover of my final project, a 25 page comic called Castle. I’m planning on bringing some copies to TCAF to trade and give to my admired artists, but if there are any left over after that I’d be willing to sell them for about $5 each. I’ll post a preview here eventually! For now please enjoy these production photos.
The completed print! Now picture this times fifty five. Six hours of my life gone forever. But the print looks good! In retrospect though it would look better with three colors…that’s for next time though!
EvanDahm said it was goblin week so here’s a goblin!! I love drawing monstery faces like this, and playing around with anatomy, so it was really fun…though I think the coloring could use some work. I tried to make them look kind of androgynous. I imagine goblins have less use for gender representation than humans since they spend a lot of time grubbing around in the dark anyway.
I drew another goblin but I didn’t like it so much, so maybe after I work on it a bit it’ll go here too. (Maybe…it’ll even have a background?!)
This one was drawn and inked with physical media, then colored digitally. Unfortunately the lines didn’t clean up as nicely as they could—perhaps I’ll go back and fix it some time but for now you’ll just have to trust me that the new inking brush I got is THE BEST I’ve ever owned.
Looking at it now it seems a bit dark. I had my brightness turned all the way up while coloring it. I don’t know how it’ll look on other people’s screens, but if it looks too dark to you please let me know so I can fix it.
