Pinned toot

Hi I'm splig

I work both traditionally and digitally; I also love printmaking! I like to design characters as well as make vaguely unsettling illustrations.
I use and for digital Illustration, and for pixel art. For traditional drawing I prefer ball point pen or dip pen/brush and ink.

older piece that i finally finished
Mared, a halfling baker makes some bread

For today's pixel dailies prompt: Balance. Made a shitty python script to count pixels so I could make an image that is exactly half black and half white

100 Heads Challenge 1-8
trying to learn what i can from photo studies... i want to make more interesting faces from imagination

Mared, a halfling ranger I plan on playing soon. Their most prized possession is a jar containing their sourdough starter

Photo study of my computer...
Everyone has their own creative habits; mine manifest in a way that makes me fairly unrelatable as an artist. I'm a hardliner with technique. I only drew from life until recently. Pictures are ok to reference for design/anatomy, but I never wanted to limit my ability to mentally reconstruct volume or light behavior. At this point I think I've learned the fundamentals well enough that I'm ok with turning my brain off for a couple hours on this type of color study.

Every year I start out May thinking I might skip the mermaid drawing... But I can't resist a design challenge. Went with a spooky spacey theme... The open ocean and deep space are equally unnerving imo. Tho the earth and land are really the weird ones all things considered...

Drew some random shit on my desk yesterday on stream.
Nothing matters anymore let's all draw trash

Another revisited oc ref. Changed her clothing a bit to better match her personally.
Nikita is some kind of undead druid. She likes to collect sticks and twigs. She keeps them in her ribcage so that her centipede familiar can have a nest.

Illustrated some characters from a recurring dream. They don't always look like cutesy animu girls but I couldn't resist drawing them. (Character design is the most fun when my subconscious does all the work lol)
Anyway, in the dream they are always feminine synthetic beings of some kind. They start out at odds with each other, but eventually come together to just cause absolute chaos

Caught a cœlacanthe pretty early game this time. I feel like catching bugs and fish is easier in new horizons than previous versions. That said I still get owned by bees on the reg lol

Well I finally finished this Miku illustration... I feel kinda bittersweet about it tbh... Like now that it's done there's nothing left to do but throw it into the void...
But that's how it be sometimes

Anyway this is based on one of my favorite vocaloid songs, Love Love Nightmare. It's the 11th track on Kiichi's album Baphomet (バフォメット)
Love me some creepy Miku
