191/365. Endless Finally, new work.This is a self portrait I took last week when I was visiting Savannah College of Art and Design. I absolutely fell in love with the city and the school there. Seeing the vast beach at night made me feel like I could walk out into that endless space forever.To address my long absence here:I’ve spent the past three months or so without a working camera or computer, which has been recently resolved. I’m back to shooting on the regular, and I hope to branch out more and explore how I can grow and change while still maintaining a style.

Character design of some families in my comic.
I absolutely love designing families!! It’s fun to create characters out of a few basic prompts (family resemblances), while keeping them individual. How I do it is that I start with the base character, identify their features, and remix them in various ways for their relatives
(for the deCordobas, I started with Zeynel, who has eyelids that curve downwards, and a generally sensual (romantic?) look. Then I designed his parents - Efraim is the one with the downwards eyelids,the long face, and… well, he’s his son’s father. Zeyneb is the one who provided the dark eyes and the sensuality. Once I figured them out it’s easier to design the siblings, and move backwards to the previous generation.)

Anyway genetics is fun and wild.

BONUS:
Here are everyone’s silhouettes since I am a sucker for that kind of thing
