I’ve been working on this Attack on Titan inspired piece in my downtime. Good practice and lots of fun!

Really enjoyed the show (I’ve yet to read the manga) - I’ve added a bit of a close up of Mikasa so you can see the details!

I was lucky enough to see The Staves at The BBC Radio 6 Music festival last weekend - they were LOVELY. Completely inspired me! 

….and here’s the original pencil sketch for that illustration! It’s not often I fully sketch in pencil for illustrations these days - it’s mostly rough sketches or pure digital - but I really enjoyed it!

Samurai Jack background paintings by William Wray, Scott Willis, and Jenny Gase-Baker. One of my very favorite animations to this day.

I’ve attached a link to Wray’s blog post where most of these are from. Jenny has a blog as well which you should check out.
