Hey guys! just heads up that I’ll be on a US trip for about a month! so I’m really going to be slow on my art updates for a couple of weeks or more here.
it’s mainly our company sending me for a couple of weeks to work with our client + I also got an extra couple of weeks of vacation to boot!
Wish me luck! Can you tell from my eyes that I’m so nervous about all this?
been thinking about stories for these two for quite a while..
"fire and ice" character blurb:
-a pair of vigilantes/criminals, they don’t always get along, and they are quite unpredictable on who they kill.
-a man who can “burn” certain parts of people/witness’ memory (faces / evidences) by touching the victim’s temples, leaving scars in the process. people only see a blackened part when they try to remember. (a mind reader’s worst nightmare)
-no one knows what he hides behind those bandages.
-Undead lady trapped in magical ice body. Even barely alive, she still juggles her life as a businesswoman / assassin and a model (in demand because of her almost-“crystal” like skin)
-she kills with arsenal of different weapons (knives) made of ice that suits her taste, her killing method is untraceable. Only fire with magical properties can damage her body.
Akin to an eagle
how Kalinga women are tough, proud, and dance like a soaring eagle who looks down on earth.
this unexpectedly turned out Steven Universe-ish, but I can’t help but love the colors in that show.
I desperately need to work on more backgrounds, so I practiced doing something with alot of “mood”.
Always been inspired by Pascal Campion and Tadahiro Uesugi, was also listening to DJ Okawari when drawing this <3
Studio Salimbal's theme was a Space Opera themed character. This character is loosely based on the Philippine myth of Haliya (Bicolano moon goddess) and Bakunawa (moon eating serpent).
-No one knows her true identity as she is only known for the Babayin letter in her necklace “KA”
-Lost her left arm for reasons unknown.
-She commands the ship “Haliya” along with a ragtag team of mercenary ladies. (mostly who escaped their invaded home planets)
-Wanted as a criminal under the 6 out of 7 planets, which are currently controlled by Bakunawa’s Legion. (based on the Bakunawa’s myth of consuming moons)
