Masked Shapeshifter: Natyu

Masked Shapeshifter: Natyu

-Who is it?
-Well, it’s Natyu.
-I know it’s not me, who is it!?

This character’s name is a pretty obvious pun – it sounds like “not you,” which is a play-on-words referencing the fact that he is a shapeshifter! I created this character a while ago and I’m happy to be able to post it now.


I thought about coloring this picture, but I feel that it works best in black and white, kind-of like my Agent Evelyn illustration. Natyu is wearing a uniform similar to the one Sourelise wears, because I created them to exist in the same story. Natyu is disguising himself as a crew member of the same ship Sou works on. How sneaky!

The shape of his mask is a bit like an upside-down apostrophe, or half of a quotation mark, which is supposed to play into the fact that he copies others’ forms by shapeshifting. Almost like how you… copy someone’s words… by quoting them? Maybe it’s a bit of a stretch. However, the next part of his mask makes a little more sense – it has a mouth, nose, and whiskers like a cat! A COPYcat, one might say. Haha… heh… ehhhh. Still stretching? Yeah? Okay. Moving on…

I like how this portrait came out, especially the hatching to add some dramatic shading and the broken glass effect that cuts it off at the bottom. I like doing cool things like this when I do portraits! I think it’s fun to have the picture fade out or come to an end at the bottom in a more exciting way. Let me know what you think of this character in the comments. For everyone getting out of school, happy summer!!

Creepy Illustration: “Trick of the Light”

Creepy Illustration: “Trick of the Light”

The day after I originally drew my pumpkin girl, I decided to make another creepy creation. This one is a little more scary than the previous illustration, but it’s still in a cutesy cartoon style like most of my other drawings! I wanted to play around with a person and a shadow that had something “wrong” or “off” about it. While the discrepancy here isn’t exactly subtle, I still think this picture gives off a creepy vibe!

Trick of the Light
A spirit in the shadows, or just a trick of the light? I’ll leave that up to you. 😉

It was really fun going back and coloring this piece, the line-art for which I did a long time ago. I’m experimenting with cel shading techniques, which are a bit difficult with a mouse, but I think the shading on this piece turned out well! I’m really happy with the small details I added in the hair. What do you think?

It took a long time for me to be completely happy with this piece, but I think it’s worth it. If I could change one thing, I would have gone back and made the canvas size a bit bigger, because the composition feels a little cramped as it is. I probably won’t change it, though, because if I kept nitpicking and making little changes, I’d be at this for several more hours!

Going back and cleaning up/coloring my old art has been really fun so far, and I’m excited to continue this process. I’m glad I can finally show you all more of what I’ve been working on over the school year! If there’s anything you’d like to see me draw more of, leave a comment and let me know. Or, if you want something more specific, go ahead and commission me! Thanks so much for your continued support. ❤

Higher-Res Sou Icons

Yesterday, I posted my updated commission page in preparation for this summer! In the upcoming months, I hope to spread out to other art and picture-oriented websites including DeviantArt and Instagram to increase my presence on social media. But all that is beside the point! With my new commission page, I included examples of different types of backgrounds and art styles I can do. For the subject, I decided to use my character Sourelise, who I had already drawn in my regular style a few months ago. Since the examples I included were rather low-resolution, I decided to re-post them today in case you guys want to see them more clearly!

Sou Icon - Paper Cutout Cutie
This is the first, in the style of a cute and simple paper cutout.
Sou Icon - Complex Style
This is the second, with a more angular and complex style of drawing!

I hope you guys enjoy these new versions of my old character icon and look forward to my increased activity this summer. See you again soon!!
