Hey Hey

Hey Gorillas! It’s been ages since I posted.. thought I should let you know I’m still alive. Great to see all the awesome work getting posted every day. Thanks for the inspiration!

Here’s a few things I’ve managed to finish lately…




This is a character/style experiment from a personal project…


And another character sketch for a totally different project…

    beautiful work mate. I love the body type on the mixed bag girl. the tiny bit of extra weight on her hips is very cute. and the skintones are gorgeous. Great work all around, really.

    Yay ! colors ! The first one is so cool ! Great mood, i love that mix you did between graphic lines and more painted parts.
    I also love the third one’s colors and outfit of the girl, though her knees seem to be too down in her legs and her legs overall are kind of shorts ! Also the flower touching right the border of the frame disturbs me a little bit. But i’m done with bullying you! :D
    Nice to see some updates from you, mooooore !!!

    Clo! I’m really happy you like the graphic/painted mix…it’s a stylistic direction I’m leaning towards more and more… As for the 3rd one… you’re bang-on… thanks very much for the crits! She does have some pretty stubby legs doesn’t she?! :-) I think that one need a little re-work= to fix those points.

    Thanks for bullying me! Do you want my lunch money now?? ;-)
