    Great stuff, Steph. There's not much I can say that I haven't before. These make me happy!

    Wish I could make it to SDCC this year.

    I love the octopus one, I think that the composition is awesome. I really like the character on the top left of this one too http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1207347173

    Hope all's well.

    the new SotM looks great, kind of a departure from the others with the dimensional shading but I like it. It works nicely for such a flat picture plane too, and such bright colors (but isn't this how Berkeley looks every day?)

    Looking forward to seeing more personal stuff once you get that monster freelance project out of the way this weekend

    hey lady, you got some really nice stuff here. I really love how you create room with such simple measures. Also all of these images work so well in their own rights and in contrast to similar illustrations, one can really see that you know your anatomy and colors^^

    Mischeviouslittleelf: Truly, thank you for such a thoughtful comment. I am so happy that your brain didn't stop once it reached the thought, "cute!" I will be checking out your SB as soon as I can

    Bojee Thanks!

    humanNature6115 Damn right, thank you!

    ...aaaaaaand I have a new custom user title thanks to you. Thanks mate

    DavePalumbo More is on the way, I assure you. Thank you for always supporting me.


    [void] Glad you like the comp! I will be tweaking it soon and re-posting my efforts!

    0kelvin Gah, I wish you could be at SDCC too! Would be so great to geek out with you and point at all the cosplayers... would be a sarcasm goldmine... le sigh.

    kidult Hahaha, always very much appreciated, thank you!

    Ash888 Thank you very much for the kind words

    So, our own kelly_x got me off my ass and back into the gouache. I am scrambling to finish another piece by 10 am tomorrow (right before I fly to Minneapolis for the week, argh) but I do have this lady to show.

    I haven't touched gouache in about 6 years. I think you can tell. So I used colored pencils to cover up my rustiness! YAY!

    Another art drop-off! Here's a sketch of the Centaur piece I did for the Girls Girls Girls show and the final. The final lost some of the motion of the original, alas :/

    Haha nice update!
    Will you draw other circus girly characters? I'd like to see them!
    I agree about the final, the sketch was more dynamic, especially the centaur. In your sketch she looks powerful, but in the final the curve of her back is not the same, and she looses that dynamic attitude a very little bit!
    BUT I LOVE it anyway!!

    28chelseaslater: Dudette, I am so excited to be doing a trade with you. Your prints and book will go out in the mail by Monday. I hope I can shake your hand in person one day

    Clochette: You are spot-on about the gesture being lost in her back - I screwed up in the sketch phase on Bristol and couldn't erase it cleanly enough so I had to go with it >_< Ah, the joys of analog. But I'm glad you enjoyed the piece!

    Soooooooo I've gotta hunker down and wow the peeps at Pixar. To do that, I need to focus on environments, multi-figure comps, and character diversity. This is my first step in that direction with March's overdue Steoh O' The Month. I have a little room to play with this one before it prints, so please, if anything strikes you as off, do share!

    Oh yeah, the book has been claimed since the last post! And now to pass out. X_x

    (*Bump*)

    Hi!
    Last version is very cool though i liked what u were going for with the water splashes in the old one.

    If i was to be "fussily fuddy-duddy" i'd mention the two birds up there in the left corner they're like i dunno, a bit rough but... oh well, u really get away with it.

    Great colors (texture, stylization,composition,... )!

    Steph - Not sure if I've ever commented here before, but I've been following it for a long time. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your work. Really a fresh fun style.

    Oh, and I really like the textured version above. The texturing and shadowing ads some depth to it.

    Please stop by my new Anatomy Sketchbook and critique the hell out of it.

    Oh, I ADORE the curvy squishyness with which you draw women. Hoorah! There is not enough of that in the world!

    that a really clean style you got there.
    is that vector based drawing?

    humanNature6115 Thanks so much, and cheers to a fellow vector artist

    markey2d
    Thanks, and yup, that's Illustrator for ya!

    michelle jhonsen Thank you very much for that! ^_^

    Ilaekae Dude, real chicks have curves. 'Nuff said.

    Delight Haha, thanks! I found most of my favorite female cartoon characters were the curvier ones, like Nani from Lilo and Stitch or Midna from Twilight Princess. There's a lot to be said for a good set of hips!

    Sirio_Brozzi Glad you like! She just sold at the gallery so I'm double stoked!

    BohemianChaos
    Thank you! I'm trying to add more depth and interest in my vector stuffs!

    crazy3dman Thank you dude, I truly appreciate the kind words and feedback

    S.M Thank you for the crits and the bump! Much appreciated on both counts

    So here's a WIP for another book spread. I posted this in the crit section but I figured it had a place here too! I am making a play on Norman Rockwell's "Going and Coming" piece with a rendition of my own family vacations back in the 80's. That would be Anchiwa Won Topeteka on the roof there, my brother and I's imaginary friend

    Once again, I am bound to this canvas size as it is for a full-bleed spread, but I can make changes within this size ratio. I am looking to improve on my comp and storytelling skills in this one and will be texturing/drybrushing in Photoshop once the flat color phase is done... which should be tomorrow, god help me

    Thanks for looking!

    hehe,awesome...poor dad
    colours're bit too light for my taste,except if you're going for that "it's kinda sunny,but it still rains,weird"-look...

    edit: oh,and forgive me for saying this,but,hehe,it looks kinda odd that your sb title says "family trip (warning:boobs!)"

    I'm sure I've said it before but the lively line quality in your sketches and the gesture you maintain throughout your work always floors me. I love this last one, great idea making a play on Rockwell's piece. Between this one and the last big one you posted (the one with you and the squid? I didn't get to comment on that, but I loved it!), it looks like you're really making vector more and more your own hehe.

    Crit-wise I'd agree with Carnifex on the colors; the desaturated look works well, but it's kinda hard to read exactly what's going on (though I'd imagine that as you photoshop texture in it'll clear up a bit more?). Otherwise there's not a whole lot I can see to crit... the imaginary friend hanging from the back reads to me as though he showed up at an odd time for him but much to the delight of you and your brother. Not sure if this is accurate, but regardless a nice mixture of emotions is showing through.

    Great work, Steph! I haven't stopped in recently but I do want to wish you the best of luck with Pixar; if you keep it up like you've been doing recently I'm sure you'll definitely grab their attention Best of luck!

    Oh and real quickly, I was just wondering if you've looked at any UPA work like Gerald McBoing Boing or Rooty Toot Toot? I remember you saying someplace that you liked Craig McCracken (I think), so I figured I'd ask ya if you drew any inspiration from UPA itself (if you have mentioned this, then woops probably should have looked a bit harder hehe).

    Steph! I got your goodies in the mail sometime last week. I sent you a message through etsy when they came which probably wasnt the best way to do it hahah. But I LOVE them! I put up the prints next to my worktable. Thanks for the cute little buttons, I'm pumped you loved the yeti!

    Maybe we'll meet someday. I'm (probably) going to the workshop in New Zealand, so maybe we'll see eachother there!
