A cat-faced dinosaur creature. I never came up with a satisfactory name for this one.
Firebird design for my thesis.
This is a marabou stork. They are 5 feet tall, look like creepy old men, and will eat anything they can swallow.
A creature design based in part on my favorite bovine, the yak.
Qilin-inspired creature design, along with a simplified 2-D animation version.
I think this is maybe the 3rd horse I’ve ever drawn. Trying something a little different with the painting technique. Not sure how I feel about it yet.
ETA: uploaded a slightly altered version after getting some crit from my instructor.
The finished pixiu painting and a cutesy character version.
Working on a new creature, my take on the pixiu, a Chinese mythological beast.
Another one for my creature design class.
Some pencils-to-digital paint from my creature design class. And a cool-down costume design idea for Wolfgirl.
Took a class in the Spring that focused heavily on the use of Japanese brush pens and Chinese calligraphy brushes. And…dinosaurs, for some reason. I don’t usually use traditional media, but I did fall a bit in love with those brush pens.
