My Final for my Illustration Concepts class at school this year was to design a character based on a myth, then do a final piece of my choice utilizing the character. I chose to do a silent comic, and this was the result!

Because Tumblr’s bein’ annoying and won’t let me preview this photoset to be sure it’s all legible, here’s the link to the DA version for better readability-

This piece is kind of old by now. BUT, I’m really fond of it, and want it in my art blog’s archives. So there ya go!

Second assignment for Comix, to make an 8-page short story loosely based upon an autobiographical event.

No, really.

First completed assignment for my class ‘Comix’ with Paul Karasik. This was a sort of introductory assignment, just to create a “how to-” instructional comic that had a sense of narrative to it.

It was a good warmup. I cannot begin to say how wonderful it feels to be making comics again, and I really love the process in this class, which focuses heavily on revising at every step to improve it.

Also nothing is as fun to draw as an angry black cat. Except maybe a dragon.

Assignment to design an unappealing character using a warm color palette, plus a redesign of said character after crit. This guy is a bit close to my heart, because it puts into visuals a concept that I’ve wanted to draw for a long time. I may go back and continue improving him as I learn more!

An assignment to create appealing characters using a cool color palette. This is the first human I’d designed for the class. I want to get better at designing human characters! Monsters are very fun, but not every character can be a weird creature.

Second assignment for character design- draw characters embodying traits you find most appealing and most unappealing in OTHER people!

Top one, I feel really good about, most of the class guessed the trait correctly on the first try. Second one, eeeh didn’t hit the mark. I’m fond of his aesthetic and color scheme, though!

Delayed posts from earlier this year! My first assignment for my character design class with Shanth Enjeti. We had to illustrate characters representing our worst and best traits. Try to guess!

tumblr is doing something a bit bizarre to the bottom one, so I apologize for the odd quality

Somewhat older concepts for one of the protagonists of a short story idea I’m kicking around. Something involving a witch and her familiar finding a baby eldritch horror in their backyard? It still needs more stewing.
I’m definitely going to re-approach these at some point soon, there’s some stuff from my Character Design class that I can definitely apply to improve him.
