Late last year I made some fan art for set dressing for the I Ship It series.
My goal was to create pieces that the main character(s) might have picked up at conventions, so I worked in as wide a range of styles as I could, trying my hardest to not make them look like they were all made by the same person.
It was a lot of fun. Maybe the most fun I’ve ever had working on a project. If I do a little self reflection that’s probably because (a) I like to know that my art’s gonna be appreciated or used somehow and (b) because I really like to be able to experiment and I felt totally free to do that. You don’t often get (a) and (b) at the same time. I’m still really proud of some of these pieces. Others I’m like ‘eh’ but hey, that’s improvement for you.
Anyway, the show is live on CW Seed now (it’s region locked to the US but you can use a VPN. I’ve been using ZenMate and it’s a little slow but I haven’t had any real problems.) And it is great. It has lots of cool songs, interesting characters and made me feel things I’m still trying to work out. Go watch it and then come squeal with me about the characters.
My art crops up in a few different places but this screenshot was the most fun:
