This is the protagonist of Squeak Adventure, Luik. You've maybe seen them before. Luik is also the name and design origin of another concept of mine, where they were human. I combined their designs here, giving toy Luik human Luik's clothes.
It's very anime.
I went to my first furcon! And I sold original sketches!
This picture has been a long time coming. Way back in 02013 I had this idea as a stupid joke, and I got the first (drawn) panel done. I stopped before the second one, and it just snowballed. I had all these other pictures and projects to work on, and the idea got more and more neglected.
So I fixed that.
This was originally posted elsewhere, like my other blog tagged posts. Unfortunately I don't seem to have the original post any more, so this post simply gives a rough low-down of the concepts I was thinking over here.
Another character design for the previous post's idea. I'm not really sure about it though, so it might see an update along the line.
I want to tell a story with inflatables in a magical medieval living-off-the-land fantasy setting, a setting where inflatables kinda ought to not be.
A design sketch of an important NPC for Witness to Unity... with gratuitous extra effects.
Nothing But Interconnections is an old concept of mine. It was born from the proposition of a Shin Megami Tensei game set in New Zealand. For those unfamiliar, the SMT games are RPGs produced by Atlus known for being incredibly challenging and usually revolve around recruiting creatures and deities of various myths to fight for you.
The latter point is in part more the idea "SMT In NZ" was initially brainstormed around. I wanted to make a dark, gritty, urban fantasy RPG where the enemies you fought were based around New Zealand's myths. Of course I'm white as heck and don't really know anything about Maori mythology.
Creatures that have a consciousness and life even without organs or a brain are so fascinating to me. I don't mean the usual robot or whimsical things like automatic brooms sweeping though. Creatures that look like other living beings, but are made of unusual materials~! They would make great space-explorers, surely. Organs, especially lungs, get in the way of that.
