I had the pleasure of being commissioned to draw a piece for the indie game Kraken Academy!!, which is out today!
The developers Happy Broccoli are hosting a fanart competition to celebrate the game launch. I was asked to draw the Sports Club to help promote it.
It was an absolute blast to do, love that retro anime feel.
The art direction in Control is an inspiration. Liked the game too! Rooting for a sequel.
I only read the novel for Mó Dào Zǔ Shī, so I have very different visions for what I pictured for the characters than what canon went with... so I've been making redesigns.
I have many complex feelings about NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139...
I also love drawing Kainé.
NieR Automata is something I wish I drew more for since I masochistically replay it a lot... but I kind of nailed it in one with this illust, I think.
Done in 2018.
Little Foolery's novel Song of the Bull Rider is written by Alex Singer, artwork provided by me (with the honor of the cover painted by Saskia Gutekunst).
As for what it's about... Alex kind of mused on it best:
If that intrigues and appeals, please give it a read!
Super self-indulgent Scum Villain doodles on an AU concept where Shen Jiu is saved, recovering, and reconnects with Yue Qingyuan...
Living out the Tomoda joke from Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun in real life.
Libertus Rubedo continues up to Entry 6! Please enjoy.
More Scum Villain Self-Saving System.... a story that makes me laugh and cry in equal measure.
I read Scum Villain Self-Saving System... the BDG Unraveled energy the protagonist embodied was all I could think about... so I drew it.
Some warm-ups of Final Fantasy 7 from the past month.... the Remake gave me stars in my eyes for Barret Wallace.
A detail lost outside of the OG!FF7 was the painful awareness that Zack dragged Cloud's comatose body over the 2 continents you spent 50+ hours grinding your way through... anyway I've been thinking about Zack Fair's journey to Midgar for 23 years.
In anticipation for the first episode of the FF7 Remake, started revisiting WIP illusts for a nostalgia zine I had in the works... Here's the first of the collection.
(ps FF7R dropping in the middle of a viral pandemic overwhelming late-stage capitalist governing overseeing climate change is so on the nose it should count as a spoiler warning)
Even more warm-up scribbles of Promare.
So I finally saw Promare.
