Patreon, Gumroad, store, and new comic... ooh so much is going onn

Hola amigos, I now have a Patreon site, as well as a Gumroad! Also, in addition to the Society6 and Redbubble accounts I opened before, I have a bona fide real store where I am selling original art and books now.
Whoopeedooo  :D
You can pledge to my Patreon on a monthly cycle; the pledge amounts start from $1 and can be any amount you wish. Depending on your pledge level, you can get anything from behind-the-scenes sketches and early looks at the comics that I release, to layered PSDs of my illustrations.

My plan this year, and hopefully beyond (if the ideas keep on coming), is to make lots of short comics and books. If you could support me in making these stories, whether through Patreon or by buying the completed comics, it would mean the world to me. I want to make the best comics I possibly can, and I'm really excited for all of these projects!!

Unfortunately this means that my webcomic Shaman Child might be put on hold for a while, but I believe this is the right way to go. I haven't quite been in the headspace for Shaman, and I recently suddenly came up with a load of short comic ideas; plus, it's always good to have finished, complete books under your belt, so I think these smaller projects are the way to go.

I am already currently releasing the first of these, a comic called "BEADS". You can keep up with the story here. The story is divided into 5 sections, so on every Monday for the next 5 weeks I will be releasing one part of it. The physical book and the PDF download are already available for preorder on my Store and Gumroad, respectively; the content will ship when I am done releasing all the sections, in March.
Thanks, and I hope everyone has a lovely end-of-winter! :)

Badass Women in History artbook preorders!

Oooyy so my Badass Women in History artbooks are now up for preorders!
It will take a while to proof and get to me, but all books are scheduled to ship before the end of November. The artbok includes the 32nd drawing that I haven't released, which is Hatshepsut, and also has an option for a custom sketch on the back page.
P.S. If I can get preorders, I'll be more accurate with the printing quantity and we won't run out of stock ;P So order early~!

Here is a preview of the cover and some interior pages.

Inking demo: Queen Elizabeth I for Inktober

Hey everyone, the process recording I made for my Inktober Elizabeth is up!! Check it out!!

It's my first time doing process recording for traditional work. I
think some improvements with the angle and a new tripod might help...
but it's a noble first attempt. ;P

Inktober project: Badass Women in History pt.1

If you've been following me on my other sites, you might have seen that I'm doing a Badass Women in History series for Inktober!!
There's going to be one drawing every day for the rest of October; then I'm going to compile the whole project into an artbook, with biographies on each person. The book will be in both digital and physical formats, and is going to include some entries that I won't post publicly anywhere on the internet! (One extra character for digital, two for the physical book.)
Here is the first half of the project:

The book will be up in my brand new store around mid-November. Be sure to stay tuned for it!

Rose City Comic Con and Youtube

Hey everyone! Long time again. I've been so busy with my new store and Inktober and all that stuff that I haven't really had time to blog.... ahahahaha.... but here is a big fat series of updates. :)
I made a convention video when I traveled to Portland for Rose City Comic Con last month. In it, you get a little behind-the-scenes view of what it's like to be behind the table, and I talk about table setup and Portland things. Check it out!

Also if you're not already following me on Youtube, my channel is here. Be sure to follow me for drawing process videos and all kinds of art stuff!

New gaming work!

Hey everybody! Golden Abyss, one of the games I worked on for Cadillac Jack finally got released, so I can post what I did for it. Here is a feature symbol and splash that I made. I also uploaded a compilation of animations that I made for Golden Abyss, and the Funny Bunny money game released a couple of months ago. Check it out on Youtube! :)

Footnote: I didn't draw the crab. Did everything else though.

I'm in the process of preparing for Rose City Comic Con next month, as well as an art bazaar I applied to (don't know if I'm getting in, but why not make more products anyway?) Anyway, more about all that later. For anybody who will be in Portland, hope to see you there!

Hi everybody! Hopefully you've all been having an awesome summer.
I'm happy to announce that I've reactivated my Society6 account, and have tons of new work up!! Eee I'm so excited. 😄 Here are some pictures of what I've made~

If you would like any goodies with my work on it, please come by my shop!
And of course I'll be adding more products as I make more art in time.

May I mention, too, that it really looks like Society6's product qualty is very good. All the prints are glicee, and they even offer phone cases, tshirts, and leggings. ;D

I hope everyone enjoys these goodies! Meanwhile, I'll do my best to make more stuff ❤❤

Heroes Con

And one more Heroes Con is now wrapped up!!
Did I mention that I drove to Heroes this year? Heroes is in Charlotte, North Carolina. I love in Austin, Texas right now. (The reason is I looked for flights too late so I couldn't afford to fly.) Eyup. That was an 18 HOUR DRIVE. Fun!

Here's a map of our little road trip. Damn this country is huge.

Anywho. Of course the con was as awesome as always, and made the insane journey worth it! It was great to see all my artist friends again and reconnect with the comics community. I heart you all.😍
Here was my Artist Alley table:

And here are some convention sketches that I did!

 Thank you so, so much to everyone who came by, whether for a commission or print or just to talk. I had a wonderful time.

Here's me being a dork with some cool artists. ;D
 Till next year, Charlotte!

Casino Bunnies (whaaaaat?)

Yay! Guess what? I finally have clearance to post some of the stuff I've been doing for work!
(Yes I really do have a day job making art, I am not sitting around doing nothing... I just can't post most of my recent work until the games are all released... haha.)

Here are some assets that I made for a casino slot called Funny Bunny Money. ;D
All the artwork is copyrighted to Cadillac Jack!

Beware of blaringly bright colors that attempt to reach out of the monitor and singe your retinas.

New Manga Studio comic demo

I made a new process video!
This is a recording of my process for one panel in a recent comic project. The comic was a scroll-style one-shot piece, that told the lore behind an indie game production I'm contributing to.

Gah, I really hope I'm getting better at this recording thing! >.<

The final comic (without text) is as below:

I'm very happy with how the paper texture worked out. The emperor's gold color coding was also a lucky gamble. I hope you like it!
