More outfit designs! This time it’s for Nene, from Last*Days. I wanted her look to be more functional and sporty, but still show her personality, too. Honestly, I’m not sure we’ll get to see all these outfits in the comic, but it’s fun to explore her character more.

Original character for my romantic comedy comic. Her story won’t be until later on, but she’s one of my favorites of the series, so I’m designing her first. Outfits!

Seeing how it’s almost been an entire year since I worked on my romance stories, I thought I’d do some character designs—in chibi form, of course! I find if it works superly deformed, it’ll work in any style. Girls in pink, guys in blue, and coupled together top to bottom.

Pottermore! I’m in Slytherin. Not a fan of Harry Potter, but I love magic.Honestly, my dream is to work on American cartoons; character design, storyboarding, animation—everything! But right now, I have comics to finish.

Doodle of Hisaki, the hot and arrogant, and his mimicking little brother, Akio, side characters from Hotarugari. These guys don’t appear until the very last chapter of the comic, and only to cause trouble. It’s a bummer I wasn’t able to include them more in the story, since they’re hilarious and I love drawing them. They’re the main bullies in Hotaru’s life that are constantly reminding him of how much he sucks, (although it’s only Hisaki who really enjoys it, since Akio is just following his brother’s example,) but they’re also the closest people Hotaru has in his life besides Yumi. So sad. XD

And here’s their initial designs I did some time ago. Oh! And thank you so much for helping to give this blog over 5000 views!

Lady In Red, a character design for the song Murder Train by When Up Is Down. I like the marker look. 😀

The cover for When Up Is Down’s debut album, When Pop Goes Wrong! Check it out HERE!

This scene is from Murder Train, a song on the album I helped co-write and compose. (Track #6,) And I just love these characters. I mean, c’mon, Lady In Red’s eye-patch has a heart on it. ❤

Lately I’ve been writing my dreams down and using them for creative inspiration for characters and stories. Like this one.Inspired by a weird dream I had of ninja in scarves and glasses, Kana is an intelligence gathering, food-loving kunoichi who gains the trust of her targets, extracts information from them, then uses her decorative hair accessories to impale her victim’s vital organs. Depite her age, Kana acts like an old lady when she’s not working; bossing people around, complaining about her aches and pains, sleeping a lot, forgetting things, smoking, drinking and gambling. Still, she believes herself to be ultimately superior, and is completely obssessed with making Oni, a fellow clan member, realize this.Oni (His true name is unkown to Kana, as is his face, so she calls him Oni because of his mask.) is a slow, silent, socially-awkward warrior who uses stealth and shadow tactics to kill his marks quickly and quietly. When discovered or confronted, Oni will use his katana in battle as a last resort. Kana has never heard Oni laugh, although he will acknowledge something that amuses him by stating it as such. Kana and Oni don’t get along very well, but as members of the same clan, they can’t kill each other.

Character designs for Clementine, the main character from a story of mine based off the old western folk ballad. The one on the left is Clementine when she’s alive, the one on the right is Clementine when she’s dead and in heaven, talking with angels.

Her story was never finished and I doubt I’ll pick it up again, but I like drawing her.

My entry for IGN’s Star Fox Star Animal Contest!With just a few days to enter, I decided to design my own star team! There’s Coon the raccoon, Rosy the bear, Owen the owl, Snake the snake, and Conner the tortoise. But creating characters on the spot is difficult for me without back story for each character, so I created that too. And now I don’t know what to do with all that information but post it here. XD

Coon: Leader of the Star Coon team, Coon started out as a simple starship engineer spending more time working under the hood of her starfighter than in the cockpit. But after the Lylat Wars left most of the solar system’s planets in ruin, she and Conner formed Star Coon to help protect and restore the Lylat System. Although shy, clumsy, and overly curious, Coon is kind and hardworking and completely devotes herself to her work, and when she does, it’s hard to get her attention on anything else. As a former starship engineer, she knows her starfighter as well as she knows herself, and there are few pilots who can match her aerial skills. Commonly referring to her ship as “baby,” Coon spends as much time taking care of it as if it really was one, becoming overly dramatic if it gets damaged in any way. Her extensive engineering vocabulary sometimes confuses the others, especially Snake, but when it comes to her field of expertise, there really is no one better.

Rosy: A skilled marksman and cook, Rosy joined Star Coon to escape the tedious work of the cafeteria kitchens at the Cornerian Flight Academy. (Yes, she was previously a lunch lady!) She is energetic and enthusiastic, but sometimes a little too boisterous and overbearing. When she’s not out on the battlefield, she’s in the kitchen cooking for her team members. She enjoys helping people with their problems, whether they like it or not, and acts extremely motherly to her team members; overprotective and constantly worrying about them. The others tease her about this by sometimes referring to her as “Mama Bear,” but she takes it as a term of endearment. She considers her team like her family and she makes sure they know so!

Snake: Reluctant to become a member of the team in the beginning, Snake joined Star Coon temporarily to aid them on a mission to reclaim Venom. After completing their initial mission together, Snake’s view of the team changed and he decided to support the group indefinitely. Snake is quiet and simple and when he does speak it’s usually to give curt and brutally honest remarks, making him appear cold and distant most of the time. Despite his aloof demeanor, Snake is perceptive and quick and loyal to his team above all else. Of his team members, he is extremely fond of Coon for her strong will and determination, although is often confused by her eccentric behavior and engineering terms.

Owen: Coming out of retirement to join Star Coon simply to repay Conner a favor, Owen was an old friend of Conner’s during their training in the Corneria army. And yeah, he was just as hard to deal with then, too. A bit too proud of his achievements and much too stubborn to admit it, it’s hard not to have a conversation with Owen that doesn’t lead to an argument or remind him of a story about the old days. Owen may come off as confrontational and condescending to his team members, but deep down, Owen is a softhearted old coot who enjoys being on Star Coon. Although if you ask him that, he’s sure to deny it.

Conner: Former flight instructor at the Cornerian Flight Academy, Conner helped create Star Coon and acts as Coon’s second in command, strategist, and mentor, giving information and advice on the team’s missions together. The other team members greatly respect Conner for his skills and wisdom and often look to him for advice off the battlefield, much to Conner’s dismay since the battlefield is all he really knows about. Conner is hardly the wise old tortoise the others believe him to be, but he is considerate and perceptive and does his best to help them with their problems. Conner has great confidence in Star Coon and is determined to return the Lylat system to it’s former glory.

And the final design for fishman! My brother named him Stan, but I want to call him Bevis. This guy is going to be Ned’s less-enthusiastic co-worker. He’s lazy, grouchy, and doesn’t really care about anything, (you’d be like that too if you worked at the same company for as long as he has,) but he’s a nice guy if anyone would take the time to get to know him. Which Ned has, so these guys are tight.

Original design for egg-head Ned, a character I’m developing for a short cartoon I plan on animating. 😀
Ned is the new guy in the office. Green, nice, and much too enthusiastic about his work, he can be quite clueless at times and is often taken advantage of because of this.

Once in a while I just feel like drawing something knarly, you know? I started out drawing an ugly unicorn, but added multiple horns as I went, so I guess it’s a multicorn now. XD

Gosh, my blog posts are so inconsistent. And my style and subjects keep changing. Gotta work on that.

Clearing the yard of weeds this morning got me thinking about a new concept involving humans and plants and how they see one another. So here’s a quick doodle of a new character stemmed from those thoughts, haha.

This is Gala. She’s an unwanted wildflower or weed who’s actually really sweet and funny, but because of what she is, no one wants her around. I’m still figuring out her design, but I like her initial concept.


First set of outfit designs for Eriko. Not sure which ones we’ll get to see in the comic yet.

And thanks to everyone for giving this blog 1000 hits!

This is Eriko, the main girl of my romantic comedy comic that’s coming in 2012.

The style, toning, and format for this comic is going to be much simpler in comparison to my other comics, and it’s a short, one-shot story, so I’m really looking forward to it!
