Warmup Series - 1


"You've been gone for ages and you come back with this?"

Yes, dear imaginary NG user. Allow me to explain...

been busy with other shit, k bye.

But honestly, I've been working on comissions that have been very hard to finish as they are quite a bit more complex than usual. Added to that, I started uni again in March, but ended up forgoing the semester as of last week to focus on art stuff. That ended up eating time for nothing and regret taking long to make that decision. I'm very happy with the amount of work I've been getting I would be a moron to damage that for something I don't love.

In other news, I started a comic because I didn't have enough on my plate. It's called Morcster Chef and it's written by a great guy called A. J. Nadir, who also writes the novel version.

This sketch was today's warmup. My HDD died while I was working on comms, so I had to work solely from my iPad and I got quite rusty with my Intuos. Hopefully after a couple of days I feel right at home again, because as much as I love the iPad, boy I love not leaning into a screen way more.

This is just for the people who follow me. I won't be spamming the portal.

You can suggest what I should draw for tomorrow's warmup.

Much love,

Some great faces and expressions

Keep up the awesome art, at whatever rate works for you my good gorilla! You're not beholden to anyone but yourself on your art. Warm ups look great and i love dude with white skull last on bottom right! Reminds me a mix of castle crashers and Borderlands so keep expecting him to pull out a giant sword and fight Tiny Tina.

(But in all seriousness good luck with all your endeavors, may they go well and spark joy!)

cyangorilla responds:

Thank you for the words of encouragement, it's always great to see.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking about newgrounds with the bottom right character heheh

Maybe it's my POV on the matter, but they're strange looking, yet have a look on their face that implies they think whoever is looking at them are the strange ones.

cyangorilla responds:

oh yes, it's the group of weird kids who always got laughed at but they kept on laughing at the world

Nice art. The creature in the center of the screen with long ears reminds me of Nosferatu!

cyangorilla responds:

Thanks! Nosferatu is to this day a scary bastard D:
