Chelsea Saunders, AKA PIXELATEDCROWN commissioned me to do this character-illo of her character, Roe, from her game that is currently in development! Chelsea is an incredibly skilled indie game dev, so please check out her work!!!
but in the meantime!!! Trying to loosen up from portfolio stuff and just have self-indulgent time.
Yiri (Squirrelcat-humanoid Alien species) and Lysandr (Reptilian-humanoid Alien species), get stuck together on a mission to a weird planet (where they are both completely lost) and go on an adventure/have shenanigans and develop a very close relationship.
This piece was inspired by an illustration by N.C. Wyeth ‘The Giant’. I wanted to capture the idea of this legendary king of monsters emerging from the ocean, yet obscured by clouds as if it’s a ghostly entity that the local Pacific islanders often encounter out in the open sea.
See this piece in full glorious color when the zine is out on print! :D
English artist Craig Davison creates series of paintings that beautifully illustrate the awesome power of childhood imagination and our limitless ability to play pretend as our favorite movie characters. He draws from a wide variety of movies, but the pieces seen here all revolve around Star Wars.
Kids play their hearts in the foreground while their shadows loom larger than life in the background as the fictional characters they’re pretending to be. Tree branches have become light sabers, cardboard tubes and a hair dryer work equally well as blasters, a garbage can and a colander are all you need to be R2-D2 and C3PO, and a pair of headphones serve as Princess Leia’s cinnamon bun hairdo.
Visit Craig Davison’s website to check out more of his delightful and nostalgic artwork. Then go grab a tree branch and meet us at the park for a light saber duel.
