Girl Fight

Girl FightSo, I’m working on a series for my portfolio in my spare time.  It revolves around the girl on the right and her middle school friends.  She was also in the selfie pic I posted earlier.

I hesitated to put this one up now, before I’ve finished more of the series, because it’s pretty negative and the series isn’t supposed to be negative.

I was kind of in a mood when I drew it.

I promise she’s not normally a kid that gets in fights.

This was just a really bad day for her.

The next one will be more pleasant.

I promise.

I actually chose this pose to show some action, to show the two figures directly interacting with each other in a realistic pose, to show angry expressions, and to oppose the stereotypes that only boys ever fight.

Here’s the ninth of thirteen images.

[Edit: I’ve updated the image.  This is the final they’re using for the book.]

Guy’s Face with Various Expressions — And a Zombie

This was an exercise to practice drawing different expressions on the same character using Adobe Illustrator.  I didn’t bother with shading it, since it was just practice.  

I initially drew these in a completely different order, but arranging them this way seemed to fit them into a narrative.  The second from the last was originally supposed to be a yawn.  I’m not really sure why I turned him into a zombie.  It just sort of happened.
