Michelle Character design 2016
Arcane Title by Mojo-Smileyface
Arcane Designs abound :3

My first character design for the main character of my IP I am working on, this time Michelle.  

I've done a lot of character designs for her in the past, but I think Im going to stick with this one or something similar.

Before I go further, tell me what you think and tell me if there are any improvements or alterations I could do to her.

Please note I am still working on this design.

Evie Trailer Study by Mojo-Smileyface
Evie Trailer Study
A study from the Assassins Creed Syndicate trailer I did back last year before the game came out.


I've finished Assassin Creed Syndicate

I'm a long time fan of Assassin Creed. I've enjoyed them all. Some have been easier to enjoy than others.

Altair and Ezio's games? Freaking awesome. Not much to say there, Altair is a bad ass and obviously Ezio is as well and the Embers short movie made me ball like a newborn.

Connor? Yeah, pretty fun. I liked that he was Mohawk but hated his monotone voice. Also disappointed when Desmond's story fell flat. Liberation was okay, but terribly short and the story was weak, but I liked Aveline as the first female assassin.

Black flag was just such a sandpit and I love sandpits. And Edward was great and Matt Ryan did such a great job playing him.

Unity was okay, but the story could have done with a few more months of work. I loved Paris. I disliked (but didn't hate) Arno. And Elise didn't need to die either. It did nothing for the plot or anything else, it just made us all a bit pissed off.

When Syndicate came around I was cautious, but still interested. Evie caught my eye instantly, and I wanted to play just because it was the first female in ages. I think the game was great, a lot better than Unity. Jacob was childish and pissed me off a bit but I liked their dynamic, even at time it could be a little annoying. I like all the side missions and I still have a tonne to go.

Ubisoft needs to focus on what they know we as fans like; do we like interesting beautiful open worlds? Yeah, do we like awesome stories that make us interested in the history its based around and the places they are based in (I am now in love with London and Italy because of their games). We like interested bad ass characters, we like emotions and drama and things that make us excited and immersed. Hopefully they can do this with the one that is coming out next year! I hope so. They've done good work, they just need to go back to that.

Slow Days

Hey everyone, long time no see

Hope everyone is going good with all their art, it seems everyone is getting more and more talented.
I have been so busy with a full time job but I am trying to do commissions.

If you want anything done, characters, landscapes, graphic design, all you have to do is inbox me! But be in quick as I am running out of places, and I am doing it cheaper until I get used to the whole commission thing. :)

Art at the moment, for me has been really slow and practically non-existant, so thats another reason why im starting commissions, so I can get back into it.

Other things I hope to get done soon is:

-proper studies that hopefully improve areas I am struggling in. i.e anatomy.

-Really well rendered
concepts for my ip., artwork that you look at and get a sense of my characters and their stories.

Hopefully i can get myself moving and produce work that shows I can actually do this. Finding time sometimes is hard though, I admit.

In other news, I have a totally new computer, been busy setting it up and stuff, ahhhmaz graphics, also, that means I get to play HEAPS of new games in awesome res with no fear of my computer overheating or dying mid-game! That also means I may be doing studies from those games as well!
(more practice!)

So, fingers crossed, and keep a look out for some (hopefully) better works!

Have a great day!
