An oldie but a goodie. This is a character I’ve been drawing since college. He’s basically every negative quality humanity has bundled up in one adorable package. I made this character sheet for him a while ago, now I present it to you.

I did this in the wrong order, I guess. I ended up designing the character as I drew her in the animation I posted the other day, and when the animation was finished I decided I liked the look of her so I did some character design doodles here. The costume is slightly different, and she has a badass scar now.

I did some character art based how Tyrion Lannister appears in my head, as I’m reading the books. Of all the characters, he probably differs the most in the show. Peter Dinklage is great, don’t get me wrong, and his voice is absolutely perfect. He’s just too darned handsome. 
I should note that in my reading, I look a liberty of my own. (spoiler) The book says that Tyrion has half his nose cut off, but it doesn’t really clarify which half. I though it would be much more grisly a face if the top half were gone.

A character of mine from a project I’ve been pushing pretty hard on lately. Maybe you’ll see something about her on Kickstarter before too long…

My submission for Dragon Ball Zine. The Ginyu Force. I remember rushing home from school so I could find out how Goku was going to beat Racoome, I think I was more excited for that than I was for the final showdown with Frieza. These guys were the baddest guys. You have to be really tough to be so intimidating when you’re also so goofy.

The Tempest is probably my favorite Shakespeare play. My concept for this one was that Prospero’s skin looks like stone or tree bark at the start of the play (seen here), as if his magic is turning him into a part of the island itself. But then, as Ferdinand and Miranda’s love begins to melt his vengeful heart, he starts to look more and more human again.

This started out as a sketch for a story I’m writing, just to keep some things straight in my head. But I started to like it so much, I decided to work it into a final piece.

Moby Dick has been on my bookshelf for years. I have no idea where it came from, I know I never bought it myself. Earlier this year I found myself in need of something new to read on the subway, so I decided Moby Dick will do as well as anything else. The parts where you’re actually reading a story are really good. He might have edited himself a little more when he came to writing about the symbolism behind the color white, or the lists of all his favorite drawings of whales that he’s ever seen, or one of the three chapters (so far) about Jonah and the whale. But I guess that’s what happens when you’re paid by the word.
Ahab is a pretty interesting character. But like most people, I think he might be a little more charismatic if he were a cat.

I felt like I needed more character design in my portfolio. So I asked myself: what would be a good character to draw? The answer was so obvious, the Monkey King! 

Have you guys ever read/seen/watched any of the multitudinous retellings of this story? If you’ve ever seen Dragon Ball, then the answer is “sort of.” The original Dragon Ball series is very loosely based on this ancient Chinese epic poem, in that both of the main characters fly on clouds, have a stick that changes sizes, and hang out with a pig.

Some medieval scientists I designed for an educational game last year. I haven’t put a lot of my professional work on this site because of the ownership rights, but this is a really fun one.
