Now that I feel pretty comfortable with Procreate I am doing some more dynamic layouts with the grid and perspective tools. I also want to try using a couple of modeling tools I have on iPad to do rough layouts for scenes. Late night I have been watching random sentai series so I have been doing a number of sentai characters and poses that I need to get around to clean-up and posting.

For April’s character design challenge Norse Goddess Hel and her Hellhound. Also a couple of drawings for draw this in your style challenges. Lately I have been trying to focus more on color saturation and experimenting with a looser style. Spending so much time with Procreate I really feel more and more comfortable as time goes on.

Mostly these days trying to push a couple of styles in Procreate and see what I can do. My monthly character design challenge illustration this month’s topic: Brazil Carnival. The other illustration was for a draw this in your style challenge. I never get tired seeing other artists interpretations of someone’s style.

I was blown away by the trailer for The Mighty Piton by The Line Animation and created a fan illustration based on the characters. This is the first year I did an illustration for Mermay a yearly tradition where an artist creates a mermaid design during the month of May. I also designed a modern version of Xayide the sorceress from The Neverending Story series.

I have been doing fan art drawings lately. I follow a number of really inspiring artists online and wanted to create some illustrations that reference their characters. Also I did a couple of versions for this months character design challenge and ended up fully rendering a design that came to me very last minute.

Last couple of weeks experimenting with some Clip Studio camera guides. RIP Lupin III creator Monkey Punch, Lupin Castle of Cagliostro was so very inspiring when I was younger. I had to draw something the night I found out he passed away. I also did a quick fan art for 4-26-19 Aliens Day in honor of one of my favorite movies Alien.

The last couple of weeks it’s been mostly lunchtime sketches at work and a couple Clip Studio drawings. I still try every month to finish a design for the monthly character design challenge topic. It’s always a great thinking/design exercise.

Not really doing much sketching mostly going through some Clip Studio guides for animation and storyboard notes.
I did get a couple copies of my physical sketchbook collection dated 2018-2019. It’s still a strange feeling to have a year’s worth of drawings in a glossy hardbound book.
