Another Jonah character!

Here's what I just got done. It's the design for the character of Funlola in Jupiter Jonah and the Eye of Oduduwa. Jonah runs into Funlola while a captive on board Rex Stein's space-pirateship and the two form a grudging friendship.

I was going for something kind of Buck Rogers-like for her.

Heeeeer'es Jonah!

Of course it isn't entirely finished, otherwise it wouldn't be an original "Shobo". His left hand is still missing since I have no idea how to draw it, but this was a lot of fun to finally put down on paper.

And another piece...

For my exhibition at the end of the year. There's still quite a bit of work to be done on this to make the details look nice, but the overall image is in place methinks.

Is almost an anagram for "HIATUS", which is what I've been on... blogging-wise anyway. All this time off has given me the opportunity to get some work done... on my videogame.

I've set up a website, we've recruited an animator and a programmer, and been busy little elves tackling the numerous problems associated with developing a videogame while coordinating things from halfway across the globe. If you get a chance please check the website out, I'm sorta proud of of the logo which I designed, there's not a lotta content up just yet, but it will be updated periodically as development progresses.

In other news, I just (like yesterday) started work on my exhibition (and MCA grad school portfolio) pieces. Here's the first WIP image. It's almost done but I'm putting it aside to work on a second piece, get some distance and then come back to.

Oh yeah, this piece is 30x36 or thereabouts. My original plan was to have the fellow on the wall speaking in a comic book style speech bubble, when I come back to it I'll see if I can make that work, I wasn't pleased with the initial results.
