Pokemon Trainer Ashley by DeathMetalDan
Pokemon Trainer Ashley
My friends and I have been playing a lot of Pokemon GO since it came out. If I had one complaint it would be the character art, I wish they would have just went with their traditional style, which has been translated to 3D pretty well in the most recent 3DS games, so I don't know why didn't just do that. Here's a quick drawing of one of my oldest friends as a Pokemon trainer in the Gamefreak style, hope you dig! :)

I've been enjoying Pokémon Go quite a bit since my friend Carolyn and I went out Pokéhunting Saturday. My one complaint would be I don't really like the design of the characters, I wish they would have gone with their more traditional style. So, I made up a super quick drawing of me as a trainer, enjoy! :)
Carolyn by DeathMetalDan
I've been looking at some more stylized stuff from artists like Anna Cattish, Loish, and Sergi Brosa. So, I figured I'd try my hand at something in that vein. I used one of my bestfriends, Carolyn, as reference and I think it turned out pretty well!  Let me know what you think! :)
Izuku Midoriya - My Hero Academia by DeathMetalDan
Izuku Midoriya - My Hero Academia
I did a relatively simple pose and base for my Midoriya sculpt, just to get a few renders and materials nailed down. I intend on doing an action-oriented pose, with a more involved base, and a different facial expression when I get the time.  Hope you enjoy this preview in the meantime! :)
Izuku Midoriya (Deku) - WIP 4 (Clay Render) by DeathMetalDan
Izuku Midoriya (Deku) - WIP 4 (Clay Render)
I thinkkkkk Midoriya's done for the static pose, I'll do the cloth folds/sculpting and facial expressions when I work out the poses. Here is a little clay render from keyshot and if you prefer I have a quick poly-painted Zbrush screengrab here:
Hey guys just wanted to write a little follow up to last journal!

First off, Thanks for the support on my acceptance into the SOI show, it's appreciated!

As for the Toy Fair stuff that I've done, I actually had to get clearance to show them and now I'm in the process of getting my files prepared and learning a new rendering program so I can make pretty images for you guys to see.  So look for that very soon!

Thanks for the patience!

I'm a student at Ringling College of Art and Design, I'm in the second half of my senior year of college and I'm doing my thesis. I'm very interested in all sorts of illustration, especially concept art for games and movies.

I'm open to commissions, just get ahold of me and we will be able to negotiate a price!

I'm pretty well versed in most digital and traditional media, but there's obviously always room for improvement.

Thanks for stopping by! :)
