Finn and Fish; an important note

Sorry people, I have personally sold out of copies of Finn and Fish!

The remaining source for FnF copies is in the Irish comics section in Forbidden Planet. Until #2 gets printed, that's all of Finn and Fish you can get! :'C

I might provide an alternative until I get enough funds to reprint #1, though.... more news on that later.

Concept Art 2008 - P.R.A.G.M.A.







Concept studies for a character VR avatar and a set location for Pragma, a sci-fi short film conceived by Gerardo Orlando. I'll be adding more art as I find it in the meantime. :)

Concept Art 2009 - Phil's Room





Some conceptual work I did for a short film called 'Phil's Room' by R. Bindal. It was a tale of an old man who took photos of every single thing he did in his waking life. :)

Post #100 - Eirtakon Merchandise by Yours Truly

Hey all! I'm currently getting ready for the Artist's Alley at Eirtakon and making some anime-related fan made stuff to sell. I will update this post with more item lists in the meantime so check it for any changes!

15 Sept: I have two previews of a couple of things for sale, namely my 'Rei Advertises Intrumentalite' print and the Allied Group of the various Axis Powers Hetalia charms I'm making.

16 Sept: Ha! Nearly forgot I'm doing Manga style portraits! Finished pencil drawing for €6, and inking for an extra €4! I've done a commission recently featuring the client rendered manga-style from photos, so here it be is as an example! (pencils)

28 Sept: The first of my Touhou magnets are up, the first being of everyone's favourite suppository shotting rabbit babe, Reisen from Project Touhou.

4 October: The first of my Secret colour prints is complete! You'll get to see what they look like at and after the con. :) Sorry!

7 October: Added Touhou Magnets preview image.

12th October: Some slightly major changes, people. I'd prepared a Naruto Print, but thanks to some accidental rescaling in some of the prints as well as a few blue drops of ink on many, the price will be reduced to €3. Also I've ditched the magnets for stickers instead due to a lack of experience with magnet paper (it might fry some computer components of my printer!) and not worth the risk to experiment. Good news is that I can make more stickers than magnets right now, they will be sold at a much reduced price to €1.50 each and you can buy the four for €5!

PRICE LIST:

Manga Portraits: €6 (+ €4 with inks ... heh, a slick picture of yourself for €10. :D)
Rei InstrumentaLite Print (b/w): €5
Naruto & Kyoobie Print (b/w): €3
Hetalia Axis Powers Charms: €2 each (*Allied Bundle of 5 = €8, Axis Bundle of 3 = €5, Secret Bundle of 3 = €5)*

Touhou Magnets Stickers: €4€1.50 each, with four different characters! Bundle buy the four for €5!
Secret Colour Prints: €8 each, two different kinds. Find out at Eirtakon! :)

Gaspu! A Work In Progress!



I'm keen on making a comic, and these are the lead characters which I inked today (and last night). The Dublin City Comic Convention is on its way in December, and I hope to debut my work there. :3

In the meantime, I'm pulling together an 'ashcan' book with sketches, cheap and simply produced, and should be ready for sale at Eirtakon 2010. I ought to have details of how to buy it up here soon. Wish me luck!

Portfolio: Pillow Ghost



Just one of the big full-colour finished pieces I'm working on for a semi-permanent portfolio of sorts. You know, *my* illustrations.

Oekaki Splash

Various bits and bobs from my Tegaki-E posts and Shi Painter. And before you ask 'Ooh, did you try using Such and Such Painting Thingy on the iPad / iTouch / new posh and swish touchscreen phone!?': NO, as I'll never use or own one of those things. ಥ_ಥ

Triple Life: Visual Novel For Download (v 0.1)

Yes, this is the one that appeared at my End of Year show. It may be rough around the edges, but dammit, I spent months making it! It's 10% game, 90% reading, and you may need to research into what the Visual Novel format is before being sorely dissapointed/aroused.

Triple Life (85.4 MB)

Music is by Kevin Macleod however, and his work can be found here: Royalty Free Free Music!

Consider this the 'Demo Version' of Triple Life. Enjoy!

Note: this VN was assembled for Windows, but if there's anyone who wants to request Mac or Linux versions, please let me know here.

More APH art.

A sketch of the insanely popular Korea-kun, but ironically he's not popular in Korea. :(

Also, I messed around with the new template scheme on Blogger, as well as making a new logo: isn't it kewl!?

My +1 Year today

Just finished colouring an STCO comic, but today is my day of rest. :D I got a Comickers book before I left Ireland back in April, and an 'Up' hardback book from a housemate. Plus a cute n' kawaii sticker set from another housemate! It's all sorted!

UPDATE: Went to see 'Tooth Fairy' (only for the cheesiness and I could nit-pick some sexual undertones in it...) in the cinema, plus fetched a crayon and colouring book from a housemate (explainations later!), a singing wiggling thing that yells when you throw it hard enough, a mini Lucky Buddha thing and a nice day for all! :)

Triple Life: Thumbnails and Storyboards

NOT the special update, but...

Here are some little developmental sketches I made before I started major work on Triple Life. I wanted to explore how I could resourcefully get the story across.

I needed some kind of infamous opening scene - avoidng the spoiler here, I made a manual that misled the player into thinking they were going to play the stern everyman Mayor Samuel Delamaine.






This was the bit that was hugely condensed down for time and sanity: I had an extra couple of characters that were plot mediators between the Claymason and Sunaru Institute missions. You had a choice of a local scantily-clad super heroine or a ditzy conspiracy theorist drop hints (I wanted to have hidden symbols in the backgrounds!).



This made it: the story splits in two if you decide to answer the phone or open the letter. Friggin' twin programming!







BONUS: The Claymason History! After understanding what the Freemason Calipers symbolise, I kind of screwed with the idea and made a suitable Claymason backhistory and emblem badge. This was a cutscene in the game where Simon automatically explains the Claymason's history.
