Amanda Draws Stuff Sometimes
Final design for Touchstone!  His outfit was a big step outside what I’d normally do, especially the kilt and the tights, but I had fun with it.

Trying out hairstyles for Touchstone.  Facially I based him off a mix of Michael Ealy and Chris Evans and I’m leaning toward the top hairstyle.

I’m still chugging away designing costumes and characters from Sabriel.  Here’s my interpretation of Sabriel’s Abhorsen outfit; I wanted it to call back slightly to her Wyverly uniform with the surcoat lapels and the high collar of the undershirt.  Next up on the chopping block is Touchstone’s design, which should be a fun step outside my usual aesthetic.

Lirael and Kibeth at the binding of Orannis

I’d been wanting to do an illustration of Lirael and the Disreputable Dog for a while now and finally got a composition I liked and worked from there.

Continuing on the Sabriel front I’ve done some work on designing her uniform from Wyverly.

A friend of mine is putting together a D&D campaign and I wanted to try my hand at illustrating a fantasy map so I offered to draw the continent on which the campaign would be taking place.  Thus, Zira and it’s five countries were drawn up.  All of this was done in ballpoint pen over the course of a few hours tonight.  I added some textures in photoshop to give it that antique feel but all the lines and type are traditionally drawn.

Lately I’ve been re-reading the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix and remembering just how much I loved the books growing up.  I did a bit of doodling to figure out Sabriel’s hair last night/this morning.  I really enjoy the idea that she has very proper-Edwardian-young-lady hair in Ancelstierre that devolves as she return to the Old Kingdom.  Thus the numbers next to my favorite hairstyles, one being how it looks when she leaves Wyverly College and 4 being what it looks like in Belisaere.

Wow I haven’t posted anything on here in months, sorry.  Most of the art I’ve done lately was for job applications and thus confidential.
Anyway, have a wintry Kate Bishop for your holiday season.

Recently I did a storyboard test for a company I applied to and while i didn’t get the job I was fairly pleased with how some of the boards came out so here are a few of them.
