Dino Warriors (2016)

First of all: Happy New Year! It’s only the fourth of January — it’s within the cut-off time right? Right?!

Then, here’s this week’s homework assignment for that character design course I’m taking. The assignment was: Draw two characters that are opposites, each having a congruent pose, et cetera, with their own “visual language.”

I already had some sketches toward two opposite dinosaur-like characters. With the assignment in mind I started fleshing them out, making little changes on the way, and this is how it turned out. On the left you can see the pretend-video game protagonist, one little brave and timid soul, on the right an enemy guard, stout build, strong, sluggish.

Perhaps I could’ve, should’ve, done better on the poses… But hey, I’m still learning.

Closet Monsters

Here’s the first batch of some — redesigned — monsters I’m working on. For an aspiring children’s author, by the way.Closet MonstersPro tip 1: if you use Instagram to show off your work, upload your files through Dropbox. Don’t use your phone with its shitty inbuilt camera. (Unless, of course, obviously, it’s a very good camera.) I only just found out what difference it makes.

Pro tip 2: Don’t lose your Dropbox password, like I always do.
