Pokemon Fashion and Derp

Made some more fashion-inspired Pokemon. First post of these designs are here.

 (Girafarig, Xatu, Tauros)

(Xerneas, Zygarde)

Tauros was heavily inspired off of this video, because I can't stop listening to it and the video is really cool :B

Then friendly neighbourhood art block stopped by to pay a visit and I lost the ability to draw serious things. Thus, cute derpy Pokemon ensued:

Stranger Plushie

Made a new plushie, this one's a commission for a friend:

Stranger took 5 hours and 45 minutes to complete. He has a wireframe skeleton, similar to what I've been doing for the Monstercat plushies. This is the most detailed, fully clothed plushie I've made to date - the shoes were the most time consuming but the most fun to make.

This is Stranger's original concept. For a little more info on him, go here.

Familiar Faces

I love drawing people, especially their faces, but I recently realized that the majority of what I post online isn't "human". I sketch faces in between work to keep practicing portraiture. After finding a style that I liked, the continued practice helped increase my speed and understanding of painting faces.

These were completed this month (June):

(Knife Party)

(The Upbeats)

(Feed Me / Deadmau5)

And these were done 3 months ago:

(Skrillex / Madeon)

I was stuck drawing anime faces for years, specifically, falling into the trap of all my characters having the same facial structure, just different haircuts. My brother was the first to bring up that all my characters looked the same and it bothered me for a very long time. There's still anime influences in the style I use now, but I feel more confident in that I have a better understanding of differentiating facial features than I did starting college.
