It’s funny, I’ve been toying around with my Intuos tablet for about three years now — but it’s just now that I decided to figure out what those ExpressKeys are for. Turns out, they’re not just there for aesthetic design reasons. (I know, right? Who knew?) So I mapped them to some macro’s that I plan on actually using, for a change. (How could I ever have done without Display Toggle?) And now I’m all geared up for my next challenge: starting a course in digital painting.

Character Sketches (2013)

Pictured above are my first fully digital illustrated characters (Jan 2013).

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

It was Thursday yesterday. So it was that day of the week on which we throwback to, well, old shit we’ve already posted. Anyway. I was looking through some old sketches and I came across these cutesy princesses. I didn’t feel like resharing them since I never really liked them in the first place — I do think they had potential, though –, so instead I decided on revamping their design concept.

In other news, I did another Shape Challenge which spurred my creativity.

Finally, I’m currently working on — you guessed it! — yet another makeover for portfolio purposes. I know there isn’t much to show yet, but for those who are interested in seeing how I start off my work process…
