[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] Kelly the Winged One Among the Clouds

I’ll be blunt – I wanted to draw a conveniently-censored naked Kelly with her wings out. I always feel like there is a beauty to Kelly when she’s like this. I don’t really remember any other reason why I drew this picture. What I DO know is I absolutely LOVE how all the colouring and

[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 with a Violin

I always have loved the idea of Kelly playing music. The earliest versions of her had her playing a flute. Eventually, I abandoned the instrument idea and one of Kelly the Pokémon Trainer’s aims was to become a pop star instead. I did end up coming back to the idea of Kelly the Pokémon Trainer

[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 Made of Fire

This was a sketch of Kelly I had for a while and had finally taken time to sketch it. Ultimately though, the sketch doesn’t look nearly as cool as the picture I had in my head, which I slowly lost as I drew the piece. I actually think her legs are supposed to be water,

[ARTWORK] Kelly Headshot Test

When I want to test something, Kelly is inevitably my tester. I always doodle her when I want to play around. In this piece, I was testing going 100% digital and ways to help speed up my process in general. In this case, the testing I did with Kelly was more to see how colouring
