San Diego Zoo

Hi all,

Got a chance to go visit the San Diego Zoo a couple weeks ago. Had a great time sketching the animals. Loved the Jambu fruit dove! So plump :P

Lincoln Park Zoo

Hi everyone! Just recently got back from another trip to Chicago to visit my boyfriend. We went to the Lincoln Park Zoo--free admission! I encourage anyone who gets a chance to go visit! For a free zoo, they have a lot of great animals and exhibits.

Hope you're all doing well :)

More hummers...

...because they rock.

Most of these little guys were drawn on a day out with Izu.

Watch a live feed of an actual nesting hummingbird located in Orange County (Phoebe!!) HERE.

My favorite thing... draw right now is hummingbirds. There is something about these little guys that is SO FUN to draw! It's an obsession that started with watching nesting hummingbirds and their chicks in my backyard.

These little guys were also drawn with my new favorite pen, haha. Uniball Signo DX 0.38mm black gel pen. LOVE IT.

TV stuff

Pastel brush!! Where have you been all my life?? Haha, I finally broke out of my shell and found the pastel brush in Photoshop. Been LOVING the effects! Testing out new ways of coloring in efforts to create pieces geared more towards the television industry.

Used photo reference for the cat. Feedback is always appreciated! :)

Commission for Mitsu

Introducing Lily and Tag! Two original characters created by my dear friend Mitsuko.

Had a lot of fun working on this piece--although trying to sort out color issues at the end between her computer and mine was kinda crazy. Still haven't quite figured out why the colors get so bleached out when she opens the file on her end. If anyone has an idea, please let me know!!

EDIT: The colors in the preview image are also really pale and ick! Click to full view--MOST of the saturation comes back...

Fun piece :] Worked on it little by little over three days.

Weird feeling...

It's odd trying to let it sink in that I'm not going back to school. It's been routine to reset at the end of break and gear up for the new term, but instead, I'm preoccupied with trying to make a living putting my newly acquired degree to the test.

Here's a sketch I did recently, just letting my mind wander...more "stream of consciousness," if you will.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!!!

I'm happy to share a project I got to work on before the holidays kicked in. Got to work with an awesome team doing some stop motion animation--for a good cause, too! Here's the final piece.
