Deskshot. Symbiosis WIP.  Really like the Manga Studio flat oil brush. Was using other ones, but this one is a lot snappier and doesn’t require color laid down to pull/smear base colors.

Symbiosis page at Society of Illustrators show. Best of Spectrum from the last four years, something like that? I was asked and sent the piece so there we are. 
For people paying attention here, I should have an update about the book progress soon. Life kind of got in the way in a major way lately, so, yay.

Progress shots of Deadpool as Transformers homage commission. That seems awkwardly phrased but whatever.

The realization that no matter what color/race I make this guy that it’s racist in some way. Yay systematic racism I guess.

So things have been craaaaaazy and/or total shitstorm lately, but here’s a Symbiosis thing. Onward!
Nestäch Republic capital city. The city is the path to the mountain top, where the capitol building/complex is. Kind of like one big building-lined street to the top, with a cover on top. er, and the road on top as well. Covered. So maybe it’s more like a line of buildings with a covered road on top. You pick, I only woke up an hour ago.

Also messing with a looser/more minimal style. We’ll see if it works.

Important thing: My sister’s partner Sher Kung was killed by a truck in a cycling accident a week ago. If you live in Seattle, you may have seen her mentioned in the news. My sister Christine and Sher have a 7 month old daughter, and Christine had just quit her job to focus more on raising their daughter Bryn the week before Sher was killed.  A fundraiser has been started to help Christine with various costs, and if you would care to share or contribute, I’d sincerely appreciate it. 

They were so, so good together.

warmup self-portrait. Probably would have improved if I used real pencil/paper or picked my digital pencils better. Drew like I was using a much harder/lighter pencil.
