  1. Hold on tight Garnet!  Or your fellow Gems will fall right off the page.  Wouldn’t want that.
Third design for the Steven Universe Design Contest over at MightFine.  Pretty simple, but I thought it would be a cute idea to have the Gems climbing on the shirt. Hold on tight Garnet!  Or your fellow Gems will fall right off the page.  Wouldn’t want that.

  2. Had some fun drawing Ornithian expression sketches using references from my personal stash of Steven Universe screenshots.  I swear like 90% of these expressions are from Giant Woman alone, only the first 5 minutes of it even.  I tried to match expressions most fitting to each character, which resulted in an overall pattern of Pearl’s being split by Mihail and Tryss and Amethyst’s being shared by Kia and Artie.  
Mihail probably got a lot of Pearl’s because they have the same beak, I mean nose.

  3. Did some sketches of my more minor Ornithia characters, Mihail’s sisters Gahlya (older) and Lyra (younger) (also a bonus sketch of their lanky ol’ daddy loon, Immer).  Think I’m finally getting closer to their final designs and I’m liking how they are looking.  Lotta love for the loon siblings <3

  6. look-im-a-cone asked: Hi, what's the story behind your bird girls? I'm sure you've explained this before, so maybe you could link me too it? I love the animations and drawings you've done for them, and I'd love to know their background. Thanks so much! Ps love your blog. :3

    No, no!  I’m always happy to talk about them!  I’m glad you are interested in them and thanks for the question.

    The two “bird girls” specifically are a mother (Aria) and daughter (Kia) and they are the main characters of my senior film.  The story within the film is about Kia being afraid to fly for the first time and how her mother helps her through it.

    These two characters are part of a longer project called Ornithia I’ve been working with on and off for nearly 2 years now.  It’s a longer story about a world filled with other bird people or Ornithians, of which Kia is the main character who’s story is the one that is followed for the most part.  Mihail, Tryss and Artie being the other main players.  (The linked character pages are their older designs, but they have more information about them in the description.)  

    In the context of the story her mother Aria is the chief of their tribe of fellow kestrel Ornithians.  And there are many other powerful lady chiefs who lead other raptor clans (like eagles, falcons, hawks and the like).  There are a lot of other interesting characters who play big roles in the story, and a lot of them are a diverse cast of fierce bird ladies.

    I’ve posted various Ornithia drawings and designs over the time I’ve been developing it, and if you are interested in seeing them you can see them all in the Ornithia tag on my blog.

  7. Almost time for these two to part ways, hopefully not for long~ I hope the mail system will be gentle with Pearl. Almost time for these two to part ways, hopefully not for long~ I hope the mail system will be gentle with Pearl.

  8. Wow I am so happy with how this cut turned out.  Look how far it has come.

  9. Ah goodness, didn’t know people were so interested :U

    For now, I will say I will at least be posting a trailer.  However, I will not be posting it publicly, at least not right away.  I’ll be submitting it to festivals and I’ve heard it is sometimes wiser to hold off posting it online when doing so.  I want to keep it exclusive for a while.

    I might also save it to reveal in celebration of when I finally start up Ornithia, as the film is about one of the main characters and her mother.

    So in short, it depends!  But when/if I do, I will be sure to show it off here.

  10. Senior Film work continues.
Have a nervous Kia.
