Monster Hunter World Fan Art

Here are all the Monster Hunter World fan art pieces I did for this year's month of monsters.

I've really like this game--in case you couldn't tell--but I wish there was a dynamic for training up any monsters you capture. Maybe there is and I haven't found it it yet? A lady can dream, right? I really like how the game designers have made a full ecosystem with all the critters and that there are big ol' pile of scientist studying the endemic life of the island. My favorite part is just being able to wander around exploring and collecting stuff for the scientists, oh, and dressing up my palico buddy in ridiculous armor. And yes, my outfit includes a skull helmet, as if there was any doubt. #TeamSkullHat4EVA

 

Currently I'm only one or two quests into the coral forest area (soooo pretty). I'd like to do a few more of these pieces, especially the cute bubble bat monster which would be my number one pick for an adorable monster pal.

 

Anyone else enjoying the game? I'm always looking for an excuse to geek out over monsters.

Indiana Thor

Here is a recent commission for the premise, if Indiana Jones had found Mjölnir and was found worthy of its power. Thus, Indiana Thor!

I started with a few rough concepts to work out the design based upon a bunch of Thor/Jones research.

Once a concept was decided upon, I moved onto a sketch that included changes from the feedback I received. A more Thor outfit was requested while keeping the iconic hat, shoulder bag, and whip of Jones.

Next came inks.

And then a bunch stuff ultimately resulting in the final painting. :)

MerMay Sketch Roundup

Here are all the sketches I did for this year's #MerMay challenge.

Feminist Frequency: Colleen Macklin Portrait

This month's Feminist Frequency newsletter features the amazing Colleen Macklin. A fascinating professor of design and techology and game designer. Her games focus on social awareness such as communication, culture, and the power of failure. Her work is also attributed with being one of the inspirations behind Cards Against Humanity.

Feminist Frequency asked me to illustrate her banner portrait. I was honored to be a part of this project and tickled to learn all about Colleen, and her wonderful work, in the process.

 

You can check out the full interview over at Feminist Frequency. If you like their work, I highly recommend signing up for their newsletter.
