BEES

A very busybee weekend; opted to assist a friend with the LudumDare game jam in the spare time that I had. The results are mixed because of the broken work schedule, but it was fun to work on some simple sprite art and animations again. That bee-ing said, I really want to go back and fix the bees themselves it was the first thing I drew.
SOME ANIMATIONS & such:
(Queen Bee bee-in' idle)
(Queen Bee Commanding 'on Point')
(Worker Bee needsworkamIright)
(Not a puppy)
(Waspimus Enimus)
(Waspimus Bossimus +2 Fast Erratic Scariness)
(Waspimus Beatimus)

(Waspimus Killed-You-us / The Lose Screen)
(Queen Bee Sting ~ Unused Variation)
(I really wanted this over the Quit Button on the Lose Screen)

Sprite Collection with Bonus ducky and unused bush:

It was a fun experience working a jam remote and a weekend definitely deserves to be put aside for the next time participating.
My regret after the jam is the busy tutorial screen. You can play it here.

Happy Easter!

Encompassing the best things of ye contemporary Easter: Bunnies, eggs, marshmallow sugar, and recycled fake grass! Playing around with styles again.


Also on the same vein of the sketchy style, I've started to make a couple example website layouts to brush up on HTML while 'finalizing' the main portfolio. 

Here's a crayon-y mobile layout for a kid's site!
Debating whether to leave the "kid" penciling, or to clean the lines. Hmm.
I can smell the wax.

Warrior Concept Art

Concept art of a default customizable warrior for a friend's start-up idea for character art direction; was given the theme of "cartoony" and (loosely) "Rayman Origins" with "big eyes" (which was stated about halfway through making this); I stuck to more curves and line-cleanness in the hope of easy vectorization before proceeding-- the level of detail is currently basic shading in lieu of figuring out animation incorporation. Let's see where this goes!

Sheepy Shower

An actual baby shower invitation crafted for a friend!


[Clean Version; Brightened colours to lessen possible printing errors with CMYK; 
Sensitive Information Added Later]

The 'theme' was "Sheep" (due to it being the year of the sheep, as well as the father also being born on a sheep-year), and the constraints were to use the colour scheme of blue, cream and brown (though opted against brown after the first mock-up), as well as to fit in a picture of the couple and have a sheep-themed background. 

I'm pretty excited to see it's physical glossy glory in the mail, I only hope the pastel colours translate decently during the printing process.



Mock-up initial sheepish sketch-- my thought was a large spot to fit as much information as needed without compromising space. The couple adored it, but wanted something more akin to their original format (and to add a border), and specified the layout below. 


Mock-up Version after initial idea. No changes at all were requested as the layout was "nailed and then some"! I'm happy they got exactly what they wanted.

Oriental Dwelling

Inspired by looking at dozens of pictures of the shire. Perhaps a very fancy Hobbit would consider this dwelling? It would have to be integrated into a nice hill, of course...

And yes-- that is a little bonsai tree in a planter sitting in the grass because why not.

Snake Snacktime

Trying out different methods of painting; this one was just a little too messy.
Friend requested I draw a snake.


Guess it was too hard to swallow.

Robottled Fiery

Painted until sleep; 1 layer. Turns out the sketchbook given for free on my phone is very limited capability compared to the official app.. Edit: It was actually "S Note"; the icons are just nearly identical; my bad.

A Spot of Tea

Woah-oh.. my decade-old scanner pooped out on me last night; I'm not sure how to fix it with the latest driver being for Vista... Here's some filler, hoping for the best. Might just have to bite the bullet and replace it at this point.
