Character Design for an Upcoming Comic Book

A character design for a comic book (or graphic novel, if you will) I’m currently working on.  Timid Mole is his name.  As fitting his character, my goal was to make him as sweetly shifty as possible.

Twilight Scene Goodness

No.  Not that twilight.

A color version of the Ink Spirit from Ghost Squirrel.  I think the color scheme could be described as twilight meets lava volcano.  If “lava volcano” isn’t a paint swatch name, I will be very disappointed.

Idol in the Woods

Teaser image for an upcoming project (either animation or comic).  The illustration features a carved wood sculpture of a local woods’ guardian.
