Sorry I’ve been so lax here lately. I haven’t been able to dedicate much time to art with work and other obligations but I figured I’d at least give an update on the sewing side of my creative endeavors! This is a dress I designed and made for a Lolita Disney princess group that was inspired by Ariel and the Sailor Lolita fashion aesthetic. This dress will be worn with the rest of the group at MetroCon next month.
In anticipation of the upcoming remake I’ve been watching a lot of the original Sailor Moon series lately and felt compelled to draw my personal favorite senshi, Sailor Uranus. I used Nao Takagi, who portrayed her in the live action musicals, as a facial reference.
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.

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.
Process from sketch to finish for a recent illustration of Lirael and the Disreputable Dog from Garth Nix’s Old Kingdom series.
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.
