Irene Sketches

So just recently Irene made her way back to Green Raptor Studios. As mentioned before she is actually an adult transformed into a 10 year old girl. So as a bit of a celebration of her return, here’s a couple of early sketches I drew of Irene when I first creating her, including a few drawings of her in her adult form before her transformation.

Irene

Irene, the World’s Cutest Sorceress is back. I first drew this character several years ago, and she’s stayed in limbo since. So the backstory with this character is that she was once a full grown sorceress that possessed the power of a god until she ticked off a real god who transformed her into a ten year old girl. She was then sent to earth being told that the only way to reverse the spell was to protect earth from a great evil, which was actually a lie to get rid of her, the only real way to reverse the spell is to grow up naturally. Because she’s an adult in a child’s body, she’s quite mature for her age, though most people don’t take her seriously. Despite her maturity she is prong to child like characteristics such as temper tantrums and an addiction to ice cream and dolls (though the latter of which partially stems from her rough childhood).

Irene Sketch

Decided to revive this character after all this time. This is Irene, World’s Cutest Sorceress, I created her a couple of years ago. I decided to revisit that character after she got a recent fav on Deviant Art. The colored version will be coming soon, to which I’ll give a little more detail on her back story.

Dee Dee

I’ve been watching Ballmasterz 9000 a lot recently ever since they put it on Toonami due to Covid-19 making it hard to dub new anime episodes. I usually intend to turn away, yet I start watching just a little and then I’m hooked. One particular character that captures my attention is Dee Dee who is the bipolar member of cast. She is usually animated with beautiful and cute eyes, but quickly turns to eccentric and rather demonic appearances when thrown into fits of rage (which is very often). She’s really a wonder to watch because her animation is gorgeous half the time and hilarious the other half. So I wound up drawing her during some down time.

Ironically Ballmasterz actually uses a number of techniques I use in my own artwork, like crosshatching shading to indicate shadows, sometimes even to just shade. So actually when I was drawing this I kinda felt at home, and oftentimes I try to go back and make sure my crosshatch doesn’t look too obvious and sloppy, but here I felt it was welcome and helped to be simulate the look and feel of the show.

Amber Page Update!

Sorry it’s been a while everyone. I’ve got a little more time on my hands these days so I’m working to get more pages done faster. Anyway, there is a brand new page of Amber up in which our friend Phillip actually visits the site on the card from earlier, what does he find? Click the thumbnail below and find out.

Sasha in Surfers Paradise

So this is essentially how I spent my Forth of July, I wanted to do yet another drawing representing summer. I always like to draw these because it’s an excuse to draw girls in swimsuits and play with lots of light effects. This year I decided to do Sasha who hasn’t shown up in any color drawings for a while. I finally was able to do a dusk at the beach look after experimenting with the overlays for a number of months.

Fight Back the Dark

New fanart of Will Vandom from W.I.T.C.H., one of my favorite fictional characters of all time. W.I.T.C.H. is a really great graphic novel series to read, one thing I love most about it is the fluidic art style and superb visual story telling method which honestly feels like an actual moving television cartoon. I feel actually a lot of my reading of the series helped me get a feel for drawing Will and shaping her body and skinny limps. Anyway, hope everyone finds this art as fun to look at as I found it to make.

Swishy Concept Art

So yes, don’t get creeped out. So this is the concept art of Swishy, Amber’s fish assistant and best pal in the sea. Swishy was initially created for the comic when the idea of Amber having an entire army of fish at her disposal came to be, she needed somebody she could rally commands to and talk personally. Swishy is a Barrel Eyed Fish, which I chose as it was the most obscure fish I could find. In reality Barrel Eyed Fish actually have small tiny eyes that are a great distance away from each other that can be seen on top of their glowing face. This was worked into the initial design, and their were attempts to even give the character eye color, however many of the designs came off as looking rather creepy as you’ll probably see below. I finally decided to just give the character black pupils as opposed to trying to color his eyes. He actually kinda looks like the little dolphin from the anime version of the little mermaid.
