hello :)

I was wondering, is this character created by you, or is it possible I saw it in an anime or something ? The pink costume looks familiar but I can't really remember @_@

VERY VERY cool design. I love your art very much ! Are you studying illustration, animation or something else ? If you can, please reply on my blog so I can see your answer :)

These are some really fantastic designs. I love how stylized they are.

Thank you both! :) I really appreciate it!

To Chloé's question:
Yes she is a character I have created, she's for this fighting game concept i'm working on but she is supposed to feel familiar. Her design is an homage to a lot of classic characters from games and media, like Tekken's Nina Williams, Toshinden's: Sofia, even ZOE's: Viola. I'm playing with themes from some of these classic "sexy girl" characters and exaggerating parts and changing others. So I guess she should feel sort of familiar :)

Yeah, I'm studying at Art Center in Southern California. A couple months away from graduating. The major i'm in is called Entertainment Design, but I've been studying illustration, graphic design, and a little animation. Still got a lot to learn though :)

amazing work man. Are those renders or did u do some post work in to get the painterly, cel look? It looks great. i love the angles of the weapons(?) the blue dressed girl is holding. They make wonderful rhythmic lines
