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 #krita and #mypaint for digital Illustration, and #aseprite for pixel art. For traditional drawing I prefer ball point pen or dip pen/brush and ink.
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...

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

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
Final new leaf illustration before new horizons release.
I never stopped playing new leaf these past 5 years, and I'm gonna miss my beautiful town. It helped me through a lot of tough times, and I'm sure new horizons will go the same.
Everything sucks but I'm hype for animal crossing!

Suddenly remembered sometime last week that I was also once a cringy 11 year old with a cat girl oc. Decided to indulge my preteen self by giving her a redesign.
Bonus pic of the most recent drawing before this... From 2007 (my second year of highschool)
