Freelance Monsters For Hire

Hello! Haven't posted in a while. It's been super busy here with Vinylmation work and a couple of outside jobs as well that I can't really talk about. But here's one recent job that I can talk about!

One of my friends from high school had contacted me about doing some character designs for his website re-design. It sounded like a lot of fun: he wanted some amorphous creatures with a little personality. Plus he's a really cool guy and a good friend from back in the day, so of course I said yes! Here's what I came up with.

First I sent him the initial design sketches so he could pick the overall design he wanted. (He chose 'C', which was one of my favorites, so that worked out well.) Then I did a couple of tight sketches of different poses for him to approve, and once he OK'd those, I inked them. That's where his process ended, but I went ahead and colored them in just for me. So here it is the entire process from sketch to final. It happens so rarely on my blog, I know.

Here's my friend's website, and he's on my side bar under 'Friend's Websites' as well. Check him out! He does web design, and he's got some good sites he's worked on.
