Freelance work and character designs

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working! I’ve suddenly become swamped with various projects, which is both very exciting and a bit stressful. Exciting because there are a lot of fun things I can work on, and stressful because it gets difficult to keep a productive work schedule.

Also, most of the projects are unpaid as of yet, so I’ve had to put them on the back burner, simply so that I could focus on a specific paid project. This was a six page long comic in color for a children’s magazine, and it was way more work than I had suspected. However, creating this comic has been a very rewarding and useful experience. It’s also nice to learn how to plan out a comic based on a provided manuscript. One of the things I had to do was to design a few characters, so below are two of the main characters from the comic.

So yeah, that was fun! I’ll probably post the whole comic at some point (preferably after it’s been published in the magazine, of course). On that note, it’s about time I start posting things more often! After devoting most of my creative efforts on the aforementioned comic, it’s nice to again be able to draw something completely different. Until next time, stay creative!
