Tara by AdamRoush
Edit 3/16/2015: I added color and cel shading to her expressions. I've been wanting to do this for a while, and finally got around to doing it. Though I really should be working on other things...

I haven't designed a character like this is quite some time. And it is immensely fun, developing a new character. I'm going to be developing her further, just as a small personal project. This is the sort of thing that makes me excited. Like trying out different poses/ different expressions that actually fit the character [and not just making the generic ones]. So for this, I wanted to establish her design, and explore a few expressions that get her cocky and aggressive nature across, but while also showing off a few others, like surprise, exhaustion, or laughter.

Also, why is it so hard to draw a dog's face? That long snout just gets in the way, covers up the other eye, and makes expressions, especially from downward angles, kinda awkward.
Party Pat by AdamRoush
Party Pat
"Before you talk to the chief, you must party with the chief"

This was for a challenge on to create a realistic version of a character from Adventure Time.
The Pumpkin King by AdamRoush
The Pumpkin King
I know it's a little late for Halloween, but's character design of the week [chow] challenge was to design the pumpkin king: a shaman that helps guide spirits to the afterlife. He has a pumpkin headpiece, a pumpkin staff, and tiny pumpkin minions to help.

Unlike previous challenges, I actually spent more time on this one, and I think it payed off. It was challenging to try to get all those colored lights to look right when hitting the form. It may be a little too colorful; there'd be a rainbow if there were some blue in there. But I like the overall end result.
Spirit Caller by AdamRoush
Spirit Caller
I've been doing some of the challenges on recently. This one was for the character design of the week [chow] a few weeks ago, where we had to design a spirit caller, who uses her instrument to lead spirits to the afterlife. The challenge stated also that she had to have long, flowy cloth as a part of the design. I went with an African theme for this one, and she plays an instrument called a uhadi bow, which is a single stringed instrument played by plucking the string and tapping a wooden stick against it. I chose it mainly because it looked interestingly simple. I learned a ton about cloth folds trying to get those right, which was really enjoyable. I did a bunch of other thumbnails/ designs that I want to try 'n complete one of these days. 
Gunsmith Merchant by AdamRoush
Gunsmith Merchant
I've been doing some of the challenges on recently. This one was for the character design of the week [chow] a few weeks ago, where we had to design a post-apocalyptic gunsmith merchant - a guy who both makes and sells guns. And he had to have at least one injury, hence the giant robotic arm. There's a few things missing that i ran out of time to finish, but i'd rather just move on to new projects. I did this one in a night. 
Not really news, but check out our new game Darkfire Galaxies.
It's still in development, and we're making a ton of tweaks, but it's playable and pretty fun. If I do say so myself.

Otherwise, the car I bought a mere year and a half ago keeps falling apart. If I might recommend, never get a German/ British car. They pretty much just fall apart, especially when bought used with over 60k miles. I went with an 07 Mini Cooper S, which was a huge mistake. While fun, I could've gotten a significantly better car for the amount I've spent in repairs. Learning some lesson the really hard way.

Anyways, needed to get rid of that old journal.
