To make up for not posting and miserably failing my resolution for posting once a week, here are some recent goodies I'm working on. For those of you who don't know or havent read my other posts, I'm working on a set of characters for a friends original children's musical. A few changes have been made on the title character, so here he is all fleshed out:
he's so sweet, It's gonna be a lot of fun to do a final illustration with him.
Next up, we have a set of the Angel characters. These guys aren't your run of the mill angels with big white wings. Their dialogue is written like a flight crew of military pilots, so awesome and they wear bomber jackets with wings on the back! I'm having so much fun creating the looks of these guys :)

I'm realizing more and more as I'm developing their character looks that a lot of what I'm bringing to the table has been in direct relation to experience working with my mom. My mom (and dad actually) has been directing kids musicals pretty much all of my life. When I was little, I had parts in it and now that I'm too old (bummer) I'm right at her side doing what she's taught me. It's just sorta ingrained on how these productions work and a lot of costuming experience and ideas are flowing into the look of the characters. It's pretty cool!
This is the first section of the cast and there are a lot more to get done! These are looking pretty great to start off with so I'm pretty excited to get the whole thing finished.
Stay tuned for some more stuff, I'm going to really be challenging myself this next month in regards to adding content on this blog. It's a source of advertisement in a way and I know the more I put into it the better it will reflect what I can do.
