TRULY OUTRAGEOUS. Before the news about the Jem movie came out, i was redesigning the Holograms when i saw it as a topic on sketch_dailies and here is Jem, Kimber, Aja and Shana so far. They’ll probably be bookmarks at ECCC with Raya when i finish her :)
Close up of the lady knight from my banner as it appears on my cards (without my name in giant letters over it)
The banner I’ll have at ECCC and at cons for the foreseeable future. Cuz everyone likes lady knights. I also designed a new business card with the same image. This was also an experiment if i could replicate techniques i use in photoshop in illustrator (i converted and colored this in vectors) :)
Monster High girls as icons cuz A: I think MH is super cute, B: i wanted to give them all different face shapes and C: just cuz (and it might be something going in my store). Frankie is my favorite of this bunch :D
heysawbones asked about ergonomic arms for LCD screens so I figured I would post some photos of my own arm cuz I love it and my desk is actually the cleanest it’s been in a while (not covered in cups of coffee and old food)
I own a Cintiq 12WX (the older model, bought it used about 3 years ago) and because of my height (I’m about 5’10”-11”) I used to hunch over it on my old desk and it really hurt my back and posture. So I got an Ergotron LX Desk Mount-Tall Pole to hold my cintiq. There’s two versions- the normal mount and the tall mount (you can buy them cheaper off amazon too), but you can see how far it extends in the second photo. It keeps my Cintiq at about eye-level when im sitting so I don’t have to hunch and I can raise it higher when i feel like working while standing (it’s about 10 inches or so off the desk on average). Here’s a photo that shows more of the base of the mount (sorry for bad lighting)
The mount attaches with the LCD mount holes at the back of the cintiq already, most LCD monitors have the holes in them already although I am unsure if there’s different ways of attaching it (my friend has the Cintiq 13HD, the newer small one, and it doesn’t have these holes). It clamps onto the surface of the desk securely (you can see the base clamp photos on the amazon page) so you don’t have to drill holes in to anything (my desk is a cheap table from ikea so to prevent it from being indented by the clamp, i put some scrap fleece from a project to protect it). It was expensive but it was a good investment for the future to save my back and posture.
TL;DR Ergotron arms really great, here is their webpage for more things like arms and standing desks. (one day i will have a standing desk of my own) Also buy off amazon cuz the price is usually knocked back 30-50 dollars. If you want to know more about it or other things, you can always drop me an ask :3
Fanart! I love these guys, so sufficiently creepy and nonsensical. With Dark Souls II coming out next month, I’ve picked up Dark Souls again.
My bff Cindy is on tumblr now! She’s an awesome artist, go check out her stuff :3
Part TWO of TWO: the lovely Reg/skiesovergideon commissioned me to design some stuff for her “Girl Engines” book recently. These are the “plugsuit” designs the girls wear while in the engine and while performing so it was a good exercise in making an armored bodysuit that could protect their insides while making it something you’d also see a singer perform in. (I think my favorite one is the asymmetrical #2)
Part ONE of TWO: The fantastic Reg/skiesovergideon commissioned me to design some stuff for her “Girl Engines” book so I took it as a chance to try some different things and do a semi-painted look while meshing a lot of different characteristics from references she and I gathered. It was fun and a big TY to Reg for letting me experiment with her characters :) (In order, the characters are Emily, Jian, and Dr. Sidon)
I saw these Japanese cat guides on kotaku a while back and then i really wanted to draw them in furisode/kimono and then i did the end.
