Raena has become an increasingly special character to me as I’ve continued writing Naddie’s story. She’s a forty-something, 5ft tall archery master, solid, dependable, and level headed, with a quiet optimism and an understated sarcastic streak that I’ve discovered more as I’ve written her. I’m really excited to have finally had the chance to work on her visual development again today, and I think I’m finally getting closer to pegging some of the things that visually convey my impression of who she is. Whew! Sorry to any folks I still need to catch up with in comments/email/etc. Today is the first day in a while that I’ve felt like I had a little more room to slow down and breathe.
Commission for a little canadian fabric shop. The whole composition is based on the original tales. This work really exausted me, the worst part was balance colors and composition, but at least i’m satisfied. Some zoom on the single character may help you see better all the details :)
Whenever I want to draw something cartoony but I don’t want to draw Skull-Kids! I work on my side project Charmless. Charmless is a parody of classic fairy-tales, with a kind-hearted dragon (Gale) , a rude prince (Olie), and a psychotic princess (Blossom). It’s a silly love story, with lots of violence as well.
