Vulnerability

A project I did for one of my finals fall semester of freshman year. It was never properly documented, and I just recently found it in my basement; so I figured now that my scanner’s working again, I should make sure I have a file of the work.

You can purchase a print of this piece in my INPRNT shop!

All the people I drew for this piece are cool artists who go to my school. Below are their names (from left to right) along with some links to their work! Y’all should check ‘em out.

So this was my submission for LG’s Art of the Pixel contest! Originally it was supposed to animate… But unfortunately, I really fucked up the math for it and I didn’t get to do that on time, so I submitted it as is. But hopefully I’ll get a chance to animate it in full!
I could win up to $10,000 if I win, so if you like my submission, PLEASE PLEASE VOTE! You can find my submission here. Voting ends July 31st~!

I can’t even tell if this looks okay because my brain cannot physically comprehend vibrant colors without red flags and whistles going off

SUMMER CHARACTER COMMISSIONS! YAHOO!!

I will gladly draw:

  • original characters
  • fandom characters (TV shows, comics, video games, mythology, etc)
  • most comfortable drawing things up to PG-13

I am NOT comfortable drawing:

  • pornography
  • excessive gore
  • characters based off of description alone (we can negotiate if this is something you really want, but it will inevitably cost more)

Feel free to ask about special requests (it doesn’t hurt), and we can try to work something out!

Listed prices are for individual characters only (extra characters are the same as the listed prices), and prices are subject to change based on complexity of character design, special requests, etc.

I retain the right to decline any request for any reason.

IT’S PREFERABLE THAT YOU SEND ALL QUESTIONS & COMMISSION REQUESTS TO KSALVI@MICA.EDU (Tumblr has a nasty habit of losing asks these days)

Hawaiian Punch Mascot Redesign: Punchy & Tourist
We had to redesign a mascot for a project, and one of our options was Punchy for Hawaiian Punch! This was kind of a pain because we had to figure out how to make Punchy be an asshole but still a lovable mascot, and he wasn’t allowed to go around punching tourists anymore (sucks).

My concept art final! We had to have one of our characters integrated into one of the environments we did. So this is Alice in the White Rabbit’s home, and she’s stumbled upon a talking teapot.
