Hey everyone! I know I’ve been absent of late, cloistered away in a gaming studio for the past 8 months, working overtime and lunch hours to complete a mobile game (the first game that i will have seen from beginning to end). The game is called Sabre’s Edge and I was lucky enough to get to design the characters for this project. The artwork of the characters that you see in this lovely trailer was also done by none other than sambees (aka redbeanvoilin). We collaborated many times during the production stages and so what you see is an epic hybrid of both our creative energies.
It feels good to get to share some of this finally, being under NDA is tough! Hopefully I will be able to post some artwork of the characters for you guys very very soon.
Here’s the press release: BAM!
justvrit said: I was looking at your FF7 art (that I adore btw) and a question pop up in my mind....have you ever considered in drawing Zack, from crisis core? just for curiosity :3 hope you're doing great
YES yes he’s definitely planned to be redesigns with the others :> I love Zack, but more so in the original FF7 game, rather than crisis core. I know he’s a bit of a blank slate int FF7 but CC really painted him as an anime trope kind of guy which didn’t totally appeal to me ( although his design about halfway through the game excellent so i will be taking notes from that).
I (actually) like it a lot, aside the 3D transformation sequence and the overall low-budget animation (two frames jittering back and forth …eeeeh). It was much better than expected and the story beats were really well done. Usagi and Mamoru feel like real people with a strange power they don’t understand, rather than cartoon parodies of a magical girl romance.
I’m thankful that they ditched the over the atop, animu, short-hand-for-real-expressions stuff from the manga and the 80s anime. It was probably the most annoying part of the old series (aside usagi herself, though so be fair she gets better in later seasons). I’ve seen a lot of complaints about the chibis and ‘comedy’ being taken out of the new show but I’m stoked they’re gone. It wasn’t funny, it wasn’t cute. Maybe to my 11 year old brain loud noises and constant screaming were hilarious but now it comes across as tasteless, cliche, and trope-y. I never found her to be lacking expression or felt that her reactions were out of character— to me they were just more.. human. I mean, unless everyone runs around being caricatures of real emotion.
Anyways… i’m enjoying it, I’m excited to see mamoru as a real person and not .. whatever the hell he was in the original show. 8)
demon idea. i think i really just wanna make someone blue.

We post updates and pages here when available. We’re also around to answer questions and concerns or just chat about zelda goodness. :)
Cleaned up sketch of Finch i did while visiting gloomsday. I titled this pic “THE GUN SHOW”. I have no regrets.
Trying to get used to drawing again. I took a break for a bit and then had a hard time just drawing and enjoying it .. so…I’m going through some stuff from my sketchbook that i want to do more with later. this is a wip from a FF7 image i’m working on. So far just cloud has been drawn, but there will be others eventually, when i have the time.
Anonymous said: So sorry to hear about your father, I'm sending my best wishes for you and your family. Don't rush it, take care of yourself, and know that anytime you need it, your followers are here for you <3
Thank you so much. A number of friends, fans and family have offered support and condolences and its incredibly sweet. I’ve responded to most of them privately as it’s a private matter but i still want everyone to know that i’m so appreciative and thankful to have this network online to reach out to. I’ve never seen your faces or met a lot of you but it doesn’t seem to matter in times of need.
Thank you and hopefully I get to thank all of you in person someday.
So… My father has just passed away. He had been sick for a very long time. It was horribly stressful and difficult for my family to deal with for all these years and then to suddenly have it all over is really …
its going to take adjusting to.
I just wanted to let you all know what was up. I might be hard to reach for a little while but i’ll try to get back on track soon. Thanks to everyone for being understanding.

Awww thanks anon! I’m doing pretty well thanks. Hoping that I can get back to finishing up commissions soon and then onto the webcomic!
I know I don’t usually post our iron artist commission stuff, but this has been sitting around waiting for so long and I really like how it came out 8| I’m also trying this thing where I actually post shit I’m working on to my horribly neglected tumblr 8D
Collab with dapperowl@tumblr who is totally the only reason this looks at all rad.
