Some warm up sketches I did of Dom! The many (bitter) expressions of a mad man. I just got back from TCAF and was super inspired by all the awesome comics there. I can’t wait to apply for next year!
Preliminary roughs for Vincent’s design—the before and after of him. He is somewhat tweaked from a hardened hitman to more of a scientist who’s been through basic training and knows how to hold a gun. His outfit is inspired by victorian era cloaks, jackets and uniforms, as he is from a time removed from the main plotline. He still has somewhat old fashioned clothes from when he first fell asleep after the experiments. His headband has been turned into bandages for this design, from being a patient of the insane Dr. Hojo.
I’ll talk more about him when I get further along in the design process, for now though…. rough sketches!
Tifa yelling at Cloud, when he’s a greedy dick in the beginning of the game. 8) This is an older sketch— but i wanted to post something before I fled off to TO-land for TCAF. Enjoy gaiz!

Anonymous asked: Your art is such an inspiration, I have actually learned a lot just from looking at how you pose your characters/the way you do hair. Continue to make your amazing elegant art. The world needs more of it
;_; Thank you anon! I will keep going as long as my wrists don’t give out, and my hardware doesn’t die.
Anonymous asked: for some reason I can't find that awesome pic of cloud and monster vincent fighting, was that taken down? 8c or am I looking on the wrong tumblr like a derp? x-x
Somehow it didn’t get tagged with the rest of the FF7 stuff, or art. It is now though!!
Sorry about that! :>
doitsujin asked: You live in Montreal? I thought you were from Toronto XD To make sure I'm not mistaking you with another artist, you were Lone-Momo before switching to Dapperowl?
Yessum, that was me. Also, I have never lived in TO. I was in Calgary before Montreal B:
Otakuthon AA Table? Offering room and board + money!!(???)
So…. copypasta from my DA jounral T___T
I didn’t end up getting in to the AA at Otakuthon which is a huge bummer because it’s a convention happening in my hometown and it would be really crappy if my studio mates or I couldn’t sell there this year. I’m offering to pay the full price of a Otakuthon AA table in exchange for half, or ever a small corner to sell some books and prints. ;; I’m also willing to let anyone who wants to share / sell their table to stay at my place for the convention (i have a comphy couch and two affectionate cats), as I live fairly close to the convention center and its super easy to get there by transit. Both of my roommates would be attending the convention as well, as we’re all artists under the same studio name.
If anyone is interested please please pleeease note me, I’m willing to negotiate to make everyone happy.
Anonymous asked: Hi Hunter! I was just tackling the idea of starting a brand new sketchbook (gulp) and I wondered, how do you do it? For your projects especially, do you try to keep certain parts in certain books? Do you even order your sketchbooks at all? Also how many do you have on the go at the moment 'cause I'm curious! Cheers. :>
Aaaaah well i guess i’ll answer the easiest of these questions; i currently have 3 going right now. One of them is fancy and i’m trying to only use it for FDA related things, when i have time (as you can imagine its kind of lacking sketches right now). One of them is small, multipurpose and feels like cow hide. I use it for pretty much everything. The last is a larger size sketch book I use for when I want more space. On the whole I haven’t been doing a lot of pencil work lately, it’s really hard on my wrist :<
I don’t do anything special when starting a new sketch, other than NOT draw on the first page. Drawing on the first page is bad luck. 8I
Anonymous asked: How do you deal with art blocks when you have a bunch of commissions that need to be done?
uhhhh cry and then draw more. I can generally draw my way out of an art block if i have to, you just feel kind of like shit when you’re doing it. It helps to return to something you’re good at / familiar with drawing. Everyone has a different way of getting through them… I think i had an ask about this before, wish I could find it now x_x
Anonymous asked: How long does it generally take you to complete a full-body, coloured work, of relative intricacy? Any tips for cutting down on time? :)
Having a streamlined process cuts down time a lot, and the only way to get one of those is by practicing and doing the process over and over again. You will get faster as you go along as well, but it’s most important to have a step-by-step process that you do every time.
Anonymous asked: I sent a message saying you were inspiration and then started looking through your art blog again and the hair, the animals. Ugh all these things I wish I could draw myself that you make look so elegant and beautiful. It's so wonderful. <333 Oh those noses too. I love me some noses with character. <3
ffffff you flatter me way too much, thanks for your kind comment ;; Also, dem noses. Gotta love them ;a;
