My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic - Mane 6 & Spike

(Paid work)
I'm EXTREMELY proud to show the first My Little Pony job i did for Hasbro back in 2014, which was to recreate multiple characters as accurately as possible in 3D. Over the years, they were used (in part or in whole) for all manner of things such as toys, figurines and augmented reality characters.

Designs / concepts by Hasbro.

Powerpuff Girls - Bliss

Paid work.
Cartoon Network contacted me to make the first ever 3D model of their new 4th Powerpuff girl - Bliss! She was 3D printed and made as an addition to an existing display model which appeared at London's biggest comic con in October 2017.

Here's the 3D print that i painted myself with acrylic paints, as well as a glass dome to present it in, and a cat food tin base with a custom label i designed.

Siamese Cat Girl WIP

I started a new character!
I never post WIPs on here, but I have a patreon page, and my subscriber count dropped recently, so i'm doing a bit of a sneak peek / advertisement drive to try and get more folks on board, since i dont promote it much!
My productivity (and therefore my Patreon activity) varies depending on how inspired / motivated i am, or how much paid work i have that's sucking up my time, but generally, if you like my art and want to see more behind the scenes stuff, $2 a month gets you access to WIPs and drawings, $5 is for wireframes, quick steps and mini-tutorials, and $15 gets you all the previous stuff, as well as an Etsy store discount and a signed print in the mail every month!

Quang

Personal work.

Here's a cartoony tribute to a good buddy of mine called Quang. He creates his own indie games (as AsobiTech), collects vintage videogame gonsoles and is an all-round excellent human being!

I've attached a plain render lineup below as a bonus so you can see them clearer, as well as some photo references.

Naomi - OL

Personal work.
Meet Naomi! She's a curvy tribute to Japanese gravure idols, AV actresses and pinups.
I have several Japanese themed scenarios / outfits in mind for her, starting with this - the 'OL' (office lady) theme.
Design / concept by me.

PS - this may be my last post here on Blogspot. I just get the impression that i'm posting to a void and no-one is seeing my work here. Not sure if i'll carry on posting my finished pieces, or stop here.
I'll probably try Tumblr and Artstation out anyway!

Cutie Goaties

Personal work.

I've done a lot of great freelance work for Hasbro (my most valued clients) on the My Little Pony toy franchise over the last 4 years. This eventually turned me into a big fan of the show.
I was inspired by My Little Pony and the game ‘Them’s fightin’ herds’ (both featuring the lovely character designs of Lauren Faust) to design and make my own cute quadrupeds in a cartoony / toy style for a personal project.
I like goats more than horses, so here are the ‘Cutie Goaties’! From left to right, they are Fray, Squee and Shady.

Trixies for Simon. O latex

I'm happy to show a series of new Trixie pinups I did as a (paid) collaboration with Simon-o.com - Latex Fetish Fashion!
I never usually 'hire out' my personal characters (especially Trixie!), but this was a perfect tie-in i was happy to be involved with, as i already knew and liked their work. These 5 illustrations are for a series of themed gift vouchers Simon O have for sale.

Doris decorating

Personal work.

After doing 5 years of christmas pics featuring my Trixie character, I thought i'd give some other characters a chance, starting with Doris!
Like the other Doris illustration that i did earlier this year, i wanted to give it a retro illustrative 1950s pinup kind of feel.

Happy christmas folks, and thanks for all the support this year!

Vanessa

Personal work

Meet Vanessa!
I wanted to create a curvy pinup that explores dark skin, a dark background, and low light, but with vivid neon accents. She was a lot of fun to work on!

She's not based on anyone in particular - she's all original.


PS - this pic is best viewed on a dark background.

Doris diner

Personal work.

Meet Doris!
She's a 1950's American pin-up gal inspired by the art of Shane Glines and Gil Elvgren, and Disney's 'Paperman' short film - 3 of my favourite things!

I plan to do a bunch of illustrations featuring her in different vintage outfits and scenarios.
Concept / design by me.
