Creepy Doll

Creepy doll design that I have a lot of fun with! Anyone who knows me knows I like dolls and drawing creepy things so this was a nice commission. This is actually a robot design from the Book series "The league of Elder" by Ren Garcia. I decided to show some of my process in this piece, and yes there is only supposed to be half of her...

Personal post

 One of the most intense realizations I've had during my yoga teacher training, was about just how abusive I have been to myself in the name of self-improvement and productivity. I have been so harsh to myself in order to train me to be "Better" and "Good" from anything to my art, body, work and personal development. I have allowed others to be harsh, overly critical in an abusive way, all in the name of this "goodness" that it will in the end pay off and be worth the pain. Except it never will, because this kind of thinking breeds the feeling of never being good enough. I've decided that I will no longer live my life according to this harshness anymore. That I am done with hurting myself and allowing others to do so because somewhere along the line I have received the message that I am not good enough and need to be "adjusted". Harshness has no place in my life anymore. It doesn't serve me. I will no longer welcome this abuse from myself or others. Self care and softness is my new practice. To honour myself and where I am at. I am in a state of perfection in every stage of my life because I am where I'm meant to be. I used to think that being soft in a harsh world was weakness, now I see it's the bravest thing you can do ♡

Some old paintings

So these are some old paintings I did back in 2005. My celestial geometric creations, inspired a bit by cubisim! Looking back at these now, I kinda like them. It's nice to have that raw creativity in my art before the pressure of perfection kicked in. Its nice to see how my art has evolved over time and a good reminder to just appreciate the imperfections in things. These are done in acrylics on canvas. Enjoy :)

New creature design!

So more sculpting in Zbrush fun! This creature design is based on a thumbnail I did last year.
Used some bear and human anatomy reference to get the muscles looking right. Along with baboon and cow reference for the look.

Now to do the colors and I'll have another creature to add to my collection :)

Axolotl Dinosaur

So this is my finished painted 3D model of my axolotl dinosaur. I call it the Axolsaur. This one is also done in Zbrush. I tried to do a lot more texturing with the paint and skin. It took me a while to figure out the colors for this since my original color scheme was too similar to my previous Alien model. Enjoy! :)
