Mad T Old School




I mentioned a few posts back that I had become a fan of the Mad T Party show at Disney California Adventure. Despite the tons of variations on the Alice in Wonderland story, I always imagine the characters as the classic Disney film version. It was a lot of fun doing this little crossover/not crossover and a great experimentation with the lighting that show usually has.

Jack Skellington Disneybound

Here's a quick illustration I did after this past Dapper Day at Disneyland. It was also the first day of the Haunted Mansion Holiday, so I thought a Jack Skellington inspired look was appropriate.

You Can Call Me Queen Bee



I have been absolutely in love with Frederator Studios' "Bee and Puppycat" since the pilot came out, so here's one little bit of my appreciation for it. I've already started reading the comics and I can't wait for the series to start!

Haunted Mansion 45th Anniversary

To celebrate Disneyland's Haunted Mansion turning 45 years old, all of us on our Sketch Artist team came up with special sketches that will be sold during the exhibit's stay at the Disneyana shop.


The Haunted Mansion is my favorite Disney attraction, so I had a lot of fun with this one. I chose the ballroom scene for my subject and drew its dancers. The main two dancers are a bit of an easter egg and other characters from the attraction some people might remember, Master Gracey and an older version of the Attic Bride.

A Little Mad Look

Since moving out to California and to Disney parks that are closer together, I've taken to hanging out in the parks after work. One of my favorite things to do is stop my the Mad T Party show in Disney California Adventure. It reminds me of Pleasure Island back in Walt Disney World, even though it closed when I turned the appropriate age of 18.

Disneybounding

Lately, I've been getting into a trend amongst Disney fans called Disneybounding. It's basically wearing fashion inspired by Disney characters/borderline cosplay. It's a lot of fun coming up with variations on the character, but still make them recognizable. I've done a few paintings for outfits I planned.


My first painting was Meg from "Paperman" that I wore to one of the Dapper Day fan events.


Another was Captain Hook that I wore for the Unleash the Villains event at Walt Disney World.

Not all the outfits I plan turn out as I originally want, but they're really fun design challenges, all the same.

"Spirit Rappings" Concept Art: Part Four

It looks like there's been some more of my concepts for Spirit Rappings that I've yet to upload.

I once participated in a simple art challenge that prompted to show characters in their bathing suits to celebrate summer. Seeing as the story takes place in Florida and some scenes are on the beach, I took the opportunity to try out how Spirit Rappings' main ladies looked in bathing suits.


A quick concept of young Abby. I don't think it's final, but I do like her big ponytail and missing teeth.

 

Someone showed me this outfit that they thought was very appropriate for Vin. I unfortunately don't have the link to it anymore, but it was still fun to try him out in some different clothes. This was also an experiment for a possible penciling style I could use in the comic.


A little speedpaint I did for Abby. Again, trying out another painting style.


A quick paint with Vin where I was experimenting with mood. I don't know what I find so fun about painting the silver streaks he has when mortal, but I do.

Mane Stream

A while ago, Hasbro held an art contest to design a My Little Pony that they would make into a toy. Being a fan of the new incarnation of the franchise, I gave it a go.

He came with this description: Mane Stream is a sweet, simple Earth Pony that owns a small, but well stocked music shop, He loves music and knows every song in every genre. You name it, he has it.

As obvious now, I didn't exactly win, but I still had fun coming up with the little guy.

Portal Throwback

Digging through some old folders, I found a few more pieces from my time where I designing a lot of Portal 2 fanart.

The first is a quick model sheet I threw together for my design of an android Wheatley. It was mostly for my reference and for anyone else who wanted to draw him.

 
Since I always love drawing interactions between characters, I also did a quick little paint of Chell and my version of Wheatley taking a breather from testing.

Outfits of the Year

For 2014, I'm going to try to get into the habit of drawing some of the outfits I wear. I've seen a lot of artists do it as design and fashion exercises. It looks like fun, so why not? Here's my first outfit of the new year!
