Just finished this tonight. So happy with how it turned out. This is the High Priestess of Hewa. She is blind to this world because she sees directly into the spirit world. She communicates directly with the goddess of her people and is loved by many:


So, I've been working so hard and diligently on INITIUM, but over the holidays (right at the beginning of the new year actually) my computer crashed in the middle of a photoshop save and corrupted all the files I had open. So all that work is gone. I've been struggling to get back into the groove, feeling really demoralized. But I'm trying to keep drawing by working on other pages, as well as any art related or not to INITIUM. So here's what I came up with. I like how it turned out, maybe I'll do the other girls like this:


Throwback post! I really wish I had more time to work on casual art. The Queens brain child is kind of casual but I mean more stuff like this, maybe one day! :

And this is the Moto Kingdom!! I really love the progression of these. I'm really happy with the new version of the queen in her royal clothing. All of these Queens are heavily inspired by West African (not one country specifically) architecture, clothing and names.

Worked out some rough stuff of what the living environments of these characters would look like. This environment has become a fortress after the passing of the Old Queen:

These character designs I'm especially proud of. I worked really hard to figure out a way to simplify their design while still maintaining that regal poise. I think it worked this time!

Some more updated artwork! I flushed out the designs for the Emperor and her attendants and came up with some names. I also changed the dragons. They weren't really working for me as opposites so I lined them up with the Queens they share elemental magic with. So this queen has Earth Magic and so does her dragon.



Been working on those Queen designs again! I'm especially happy with how the courtesan (second left) turned out in the "after" version. I'll be updating with some of the other fresh new designs for the different Queens!

Still working on stuff! Finally locked down designs for the foster family of one of INITIUM's protagonists: Julliet Pena. Check it out:

So I'm still working on my character design game, and I felt like the Queens were missing something. So I created some other characters to flesh them out some. Plus updated their design. Here is the Old Queen with her two children and her dragon.
