[ARTWORK] Playful Silence

Here’s something you might know about me: over the past few years, I’ve increasingly hated my artwork. *GASP* I KNOW, I KNOW, that is so shocking! Surprising! Okay, maybe not. But yes…I was hating my artwork. Or rather, I was very unsatisfied with it and it was making me grumpy! I fixed a part of

[ARTWORK] Kelly the Dreamer’s Night Out

I can’t really remember why I drew Kelly the Dreamer like this. I think I wanted to experiment and I didn’t feel like doing her in her original clothing. What exactly was I trying to experiment with? 1.) Simplifying my colouring process by using less colours for the shading. Usually, I’d use 5 or 6

[ARTWORK] Kelly the Dreamer – iPad Test

I wanted a Wacom Cintq a few years ago, but held off in favour of getting a new Intuos. My first Intuos broke after a move and I saw an opportunity to upgrade my equipment. I ended up putting out a message on my social media pages asking for input. I ultimately decided to hold

[ARTWORK] Releasing Dreams to the Universe

If you read my last post, you know that I started to tweak my illustrations once again by keeping my sketch lines. I only had one gripe with this style and that was colouring it using Clip Studio Paint’s pen tool was taking a bit longer than I liked. When I would do line art

Kelly Sticking Out Her Tongue

[ARTWORK] Kelly Sticking Out Her Tongue

One of the biggest themes for myself over the past few years, especially in 2018, has to been to recognize what I like to do and what I don’t like to do, as well as what is actually necessary for me to do and what isn’t. When it came to my illustrations, my comics made

[Artwork] Queen, Dreamer, Creator – Special Project

In my 4th Creative Works update, I had shared pictures of progress for a special project I was doing: This project was illustrations of my two anime forms (nicknamed “Queen” and “Creator”) along with new ones of Kelly the Dreamer. I wanted these illustrations to be used for merchandise on the online shop. I wasn’t

[ARTWORK] Kelly the Dreamer – Snow Gear

I think I drew this when I did my winter commission posters. If I also recall, it took me quite a while to finish this piece. I don’t really remember why it took me so long, but it did. This is one of my absolute favourite pieces! I periodically think about it, I love it

[ARTWORK] Kelly the Dreamer – Hand Over Heart

Kelly the Dreamer with her hand over her heart. This was also related to the spiritual awakening picture, although I never actually coloured this one. I did use it as a logo outline for a side-hustle idea I ultimately dropped. I think this picture is okay. It’s not one of my favourites, but it’s decent.

[ARTWORK] Kelly the Dreamer Doodles

I think these doodles were from when I was doodling Kelly’s Dreamer form. I wanted a version of Kelly to be one of my website mascots (the other being my anime forms) and ultimately decided to come up with a version of her I called Kelly the Dreamer. Kelly the Dreamer is notably different from

[ARTWORK] Kelly the Dreamer & Fused Me

Once upon a time, I was going to have a separate website for all of my comics from my other forms of storytelling. I wanted the banner to be fun and full of action, like a comic. This was the piece I drew. I ended up only using my fused anime form. I don’t actually

[ARTWORK] Chibi Bonanza!!

CHIBIS!!!! Or just chibi. Do you know what, I don’t know how we use the Japanese word “chibi” in English. Unlike words like “anime” and “manga” where adding an “s” to make it plural sounds odd (“I own a lot of anime” sounds more correct than “I own a lot of animes”), using the word

[ARTWORK] Kelly on a Moon

There’s not much of a story behind this picture. I just really wanted to draw Kelly on a crescent moon, so that’s what I did. I think it looks REALLY pretty, but it’s pretty evident that I need to stop with the starry, abstract backgrounds and try something more concrete next. While I think this
