Vanilla Extract (Tribute Fan Zine)
A Vanillaware 20th Anniversary
Tribute Fan Zine
Happy 20th to Vanillaware!
Super happy to have contributed to a fan zine to express my love to a game studio that contributed to my life a lot. I did a couple illustrations for it and best friend/creative partner Alex "Muun" Singer did a fic!
All proceeds earned up to October 17th will go to the Trevor Project.
Please check it out!
Nan Chan is a story about a useless narcoleptic zombie and a horny fish that is trying to decide on his "fuck, marry, kill" answers very seriously, and together they are the proud parents of a marvellous single brain cell.
13 Sentinels (Start.exe)
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
listen, I love everything about this game, I do, but it's uncontroversial to say Hijiyama and Okino are the only things in it that matter
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.
Big black nemesis, parthenogenesis
No one move a muscle as the dead come home
The art direction in Control is an inspiration. Liked the game too! Rooting for a sequel.
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.
Scum Villain (QiJiu Recovery AU)
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.
More Scum Villain Self-Saving System.... a story that makes me laugh and cry in equal measure.
Scum Villain (Unraveled)
I read Scum Villain Self-Saving System... the BDG Unraveled energy the protagonist embodied was all I could think about... so I drew it.
Final Fantasy 7 (Travelling Soldier)
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.
Final Fantasy 7 (Memories)
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.
Every game Supergiant produces is artistic perfection, but Pyre definitely impacted me in ways I didn't expect.
All drawn circa 2017. I kept meaning to post these after I completed some fanart for other Supergiant games, but that hasn't happened yet lol... so I'll get to those later.
Fanart of UNDERTAILE, drawn December 2018 -- a year ago.
The climax of the Pacifist Route stuck with me, and "Hopes and Dreams" continues to be one of the most inspiring tunes I've had the pleasure of listening to, so I had to draw something inspired by it.
Dedicated to my younger brother, because he's the one that finally forced me to sit down and play the game, and to make-up for never drawing a thing he asked me to draw when we were kids.
