Summer Lovin'

Here's some stuff I've done so far this summer.

Sailor Venus!! I've been watching a lot of GAINAX lately, trying to bring that energy in my work. Someone told me that my art is really "static" and "lifeless". So, I've been trying to prove otherwise. I think my art isn't really anything. It's whatever I feel like doing. And if there's something I'm lacking, I'll get to it.

This is a Korra print I did for conventions! It was my first big poster type work I've ever done. I really enjoyed it--my only regret with this poster was that I didn't stylize more. Ah, well. Always next time. I've been studying old  poster-work lately, like Star Wars and Pulp novels and the like, and I'm definitely going to have more fun with the next one I do.
 One of my few original characters, Liisi Landetta, working this really rad futuristic dress I saw on tumblr. Just messin' around.
Side-by-side comparison of my icon that I drew in February and the one I drew last week. The shapes in the first one are terrible!! I was getting OCD every time I looked at it. Why did I pinch her head inwards like that??? Ugh. The new one isn't perfect, but I think it's an improvement. 
And here's a Starfire that tumblr really liked for some reason. I was just trying to practice drawing dynamic poses while maintaining a shape language. 

Hope you're all having a good summer!!
