Good morning or good afternoon to you all; WE MADE IT! The Kickstarter for Jotun has been successfully FUNDEDHere are the (cropped) god designs I did that were released, for which the backers got to participate in choosing the blessing or power they would give Thora upon meeting.

Thank you all who reblogged my first post to signal boost the project, and the biggest of thank yous to the backers of the project without whom the project would not have taken off. I’m so happy and grateful to have been part of this, and to continue to be!

We just had a little party to celebrate this success, and on top of the awesome Jotun cake we had, we had the cutest little stickers ;v;

WHAT GOOD NEWS BEFORE OTAKUTHON♥

Aaaand one last!

I’ve got two sky-themed prints now, and in complimentary colours; one orange, one blue! (this one was 100% self indulgent) Gosh that was a close call, I’m just really glad I got these three prints done over the weekend, because now all that’s left to do is the printing. I hope it all goes smoothly.

More WIPs!

So as I’ve stated before, I’m going to attend Otakuuthon this year as an artist! My Salior Moon piece is now done and done, finally! Here’s a sneak peek;

And I am now onto another, bigger (in print size) piece!

Look at all of those layers, phew.

Can’t work with shrink film? Keep on drawing.

Suck it, shrink film.

I had to go out after all today for some quick necessities after playing some WoW to relax and working on prints for Montreal’s Otakuthon. Guh, I’m so tired and I don’t wanna ink anymore. I think tonight will be an early bed time! I’m still strangely shaken up and upset about the whole thing.

Anywho! Here’s a sneak peak…

JOTUN: LIVE ON KICKSTARTER!

In Jotun, you play Thora, a Norse warrior who has died an inglorious death and must face the challenges of Viking purgatory to prove herself to the Gods and enter Valhalla.

I am proud to present to you the game I’ve been working on for the past few months: Jotun. Although the kickstarter has been doing very well without my help, I couldn’t just stand back and not let you guys in on the fun!

Working on this has been an absolute delight and has given be challenges to boot. From first concept sketches to final designs, working with William Dubé has been one smooth ride and very educative. Reading up on Norse mythology and adapting the legends to a style that would be proper to the game has been fun and creatively enchanting, to say the least!

I couldn’t talk about the creative process without mentioning how exciting it has been to watch my designs go from flat to animated, by the amazing Alexandre Boyer, my gosh!


just look at her go..! eeeee

The other crazy skilled 2D artists who have made this project come to life are Annejulie PDarnell Lysius-Dicette and Marianne Vincent. Definitely check them out, you will not be disappointed!

Please check the Kickstarter page if you have a few minutes to spare and if 2D games strike your fancy, and pledge for awesome rewards! :D If you can’t pledge, that’s totes cool, but please consider sharing this so that your friends & followers can see this!

Thank you for your interest, and I hope to see you all through the adventure!

Forgot to mention I got him a visit to the vet on monday! I explained what happened and the nice secretary gave me their earliest spot. I can’t wait to know if anything’s up with him at all, it’s all I think about all day, gah!

He seems to be doing okay this morning! I doubt he slept much. I’ll be calling the vet on my lunch break, and give him another bath tonight as well as cleaning his ears.

Anonymous asked: Can you tell us more about your monster character? He's so cute!!

Aaaah, I’m glad you like him! He’s still fairly new (although now all fleshed out, which is a Big Thing for me when it comes to characters) so everything he does has yet to come naturally to me, but I may give you a gist!

Veekrelka is his full name and he’s basically… a god. He’s one of the many divine entities that roam the realm this story is set in and he has lived in solitude for most if not all of his existence. He originally did not need to eat or drink, but has gotten accustomed to it, and over the centuries he has been active, has grown addicted to it. He hunts both for the thrill and for the meat he gorges himself with.

This is a long read, so click at your own risk!

Hello! As close to none of you know, I’ll be attending Otakuthon this year as an artist, sharing table with the lovely frizz-the-bee who was kind enough to split it up with me♥

I will not have a lot of stock, but I will for sure have (various, not only pony-themed) prints and these as those up here as keychains or cellphone straps. There is one more item I’m looking into to sell as merch, but I would much rather not reveal it yet in case I can’t make it in time, y’know! So I’ll be working my butt off for this in the next month, let’s see how much I can achieve in such a short time. Phew, let’s go!
