Massively Artwork Roundup

I realized it was stupid to just re-post all my Massively work here, since most of the people who visit this page come here FROM Massively.

Those who do come, that is.

Hello out there?  *crickets*

Ahem.  Anyway.

I’ve decided to post some of my favorite recent Massively work here, with some commentary on the pieces and/or process.

This little piece is one of my favorites.  I love the phone cord breaking up the composition.  And for the record?  I actually DO have a phone in my house with a curly cord!  Yes!  Not everyone uses cordless phones or cell phones exclusively!  I feel like a relic.  Anyway, this character’s name is Mr. Swift, ‘cos he’s actually really dumb.  He looks a lot like his mom, no?


I did this one after visiting Dinosaur Crossing down in Salem, CT.  This is the best stegosaurus I’ve ever drawn, and no one will ever take that away from me, dammit.

This one is Eliot, my writer’s, favorite.  He even gave the three guys names and made up a little narrative about them.  Sounds like he has too much time on his hands.

This one sparked a LOT of questions in the comment field.  I really like the soft color scheme – it looks like the inside of Aerie or Victoria’s Secret, no?  The one thing that makes me looks at this drawing funny is that it is one of the ONLY FFXI column pieces I’ve done that doesn’t have any value.  See?  It’s all flat!  There was too much going on as it is to add value.  Also, I feel kind of scummy drawing uh… detail on the underwears, and I’m not talking about the patterns. :O

I watch TV shows on Hulu while I do my illustration work, just to give my left brain something to do.  I watched the entire run of Community in a month.  I.  LOVE.  COMMUNITY.  It’s snarky and sarcastic and Abed is just SO adorable (in both normal human form and Elvaan form).  A lot of the Massively posters said it looks like Galka!Starburns is checking out Elvaan!Abed.  I responded that that’s because everyone loves Abed.  Maybe that’s just me being an Abed fangirl.  I’m a Dean fangirl too, since he’s so ridiculous.  “Don’t SAY that, it summons him!”  Anyway, I really like the value here.  It looks like my figure painting classes really paid off.  For the record, the professor in that class looked like a combination of Starburns and Dr. Steve Brule.  Okay, time to stop rambling.

Okay, last one.  I did this one in honor of Lost ending.  Most of the comments for this column consisted of “CHARLIE NOOOOOO.”  Charlie was my favorite character in Lost until last season, when Jack took over.  Which is weird because Jack used to be my least favorite character.  Oh well, Lost was so awesome, and I’ll miss it. 😦


Massively Columns, Week 2

Here’s the latest illustrations for Massively.

A Mild-Mannered Reporter:

The Mog Log:

New Project

I am very excited to announce that I will now be illustrating two weekly columns on Massively.comThe Mog Log, about Final Fantasy XI and the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV, and A Mild-Mannered Reporter, about City of Heroes. This looks like it’s going to be a very fun project! My first illustration is already up on the Mog Log right now if you’d like to take a peek.

The most exciting part about this project is that it’s really forcing me to work in two totally different styles, since the two games have very different flavors. The Mog Log will have softer colors and more value, while A Mild-Mannered Reporter will be drawn in much bolder colors and use ziptones, much like a superhero comic.
