I am a character illustrator with glasses and a pet corgi. Sometimes I am also a big-eared red dragon.

Lunch doodle of my tauren monk Brewsnout that I’ve been really getting into. 

I’ve decided he’s a youngin’ brewmaster who’s really just a gentle giant.

I’m pretty bummed about how Blizzard chose to portray Golka in the latest Lords of War short. And really getting tired of how all female Horde characters take a back-seat to the men, or worse, shown to be inferior.

They chose to have her deemed “weak” by her actions in the eyes of a Warsong orc like Grom. This could have been an avenue to maybe have her actually “die a warrior’s death” during their battle against the ogres, and have the loss of his mate further fuel Grom’s rage after his capture. 
But instead they have her give up, an act seen to be unworthy of Grom and the Warsong orcs, by begging for death after her defeat. Her integrity as an orc is sacrificed for an easy show of Grom Hellscream being “tough as iron”. FUCK THAT
As the lady of the Warsong clan: Golka is a badass. This wolf /DOES/ HAVE TEETH! 
LOK’TAR!

I haven’t had much in the way of finished art to share lately. So I dug around for some sketches that have been getting smelly on my harddrive in the meantime.

Promo art for Vancoufur 2015.
Their theme next year is noir/gangsters so I took this as an opportunity to try something different and attempt an art deco emulation.

I told c3rmen that I’d draw her a Digified badge of one of her kalacar characters for her birthday so this is hella overdue. 

Digified Rekai(mon)!

jamminlucario: Seeing as you have a degree in design, would you mind sharing some tips on how to make a memorable/"good" character?

Ahh I’m pretty poor at articulating myself on the subject since I feel a lot of it is intuition! But I’ll try to give a few points:

  • Develop an interesting silhouette with shape, scale and contrast! No amount of accessories can save you from a generic silhouette.
  • Have a vision for the character and let this inform the shapes you choose (ie: a strong, menacing character using harsh, large square shapes)
  • Play up stereotypes/archetypes, especially if you’re just starting out. 
  • Draw the character a lot. Don’t just try one design and settle with it. Play with the shapes and scale contrast in a lot of different combinations
  • Use the ‘rule of three’, especially when you get to colours (typically don’t use more than 3 hues for a colour palette)
  • More often than not: less is more!

That’s all I can think of for now! Hopefully it helps. I’d also recommend checking this tutorial on stylizing animals cause it explains how my brain works when it comes to designing better than I can: http://fav.me/d4qva2f
