Hey wonderful humans! I am now back to posting as usual. Yay! I already explained my absence in my last post, so I won't bother boring you with any of that stuff here. Alright, let's go!
First interesting thing to show you, I've made this animation. It's quite short, but it took me ages to finish because I was working on it in my free time while I was doing my uni course, and there wasn't a lot of said free time.
This is one of the dances they used to make us do when I was in primary school, along with the Nutbush, the Chicken Dance and the Macarena. I was feeling kind of nostalgic.
I made a lot of mistakes as I haven't really made a finished animation this long and complicated before, but I learned a heck of a lot, so hopefully the next animation I make will be loads better.
The next thing I have to show you is this Trixie picture. I'm going to turn it into a sticker and sell them on my Etsy store. If that's something you think you'll be interested in, I'd recommend following my Instagram, as I'll post there when they're available.
Next up is some photography. I went to fill the bird bath and found this strange squishy blue thing sitting in it. It was really cute and I had no idea what it was so I had to take a picture.
Here I have some sketches of Chomp Kitty from the show Glitch Techs. It's such an awesome cartoon with great characters, a cool concept and super high quality animation. It's on Netflix if you'd like to check it out.
Now, I don't know if you've heard of Lightbox Expo, but if you haven't, it's this convention for artists and people working in creative industries. This year was the second one, and it was online, which meant I could actually check it out without flying all the way to America.
There were loads of cool workshops and livestreams, many of which are probably still up so if you missed out, I'm pretty sure there's a bunch still on YouTube.
Anyway, Nicholas Kole, an artist I've been following for a while who does some really cool character design stuff, released a digital art book for his project Jellybots. I was super excited to check it out, because I've seen a bunch of his Jellybots artworks in the past and they all look super cool.
I ended up buying the deluxe version, which came with some tutorials and there was one on how to draw jelly. I used it to create this drawing of what I think Trixie would look like if she lived in the Jellybots universe.
If you wanna check out Nick's work, here's the link to his Instagram. His art is really amazing, so you should definitely give him a follow!
On the fifth anniversary of Undertale, there was an Undertale concert that was streamed on YouTube. It was really awesome to hear the soundtrack being played by an orchestra. I drew this to celebrate while I was listening.
Aaannnnd last but not least, Sky fan art! If you haven't heard of it, Sky Children of the Light is a free game for mobile devices, which might as well be a console game because it's absolutely stunning. The graphics are amazing, the soundtrack is superb, there really isn't anything negative I can say about it. I've been playing for about a year now, and I'm still not bored. It's multiplayer and super relaxing to play.
Anyways, I wanted to practice painting backgrounds, and I was feeling inspired so I made this.
So there we go! That's all the stuff I've got to show you. I'll be going back to my normal posting schedule now, so there shouldn't be too many ridiculously long posts like this moving forward. I'll also be posting a process post for the Razar animation at some point, so keep an eye out for that.
Hope you have an amazing week and thanks for stopping by!
