AHOY. I'm a graphic/web designer and this is my art/design blog. Expect many long-winded explanations. Feel free to contact me here: fryingsausage@gmail.com
INKTOBER 008: CONFETTI! It’s a PARADE
What Misha says in one of the Supernatural gagreels. Super quick and sloppy doodle. lol

You can purchase this here.

WHAT WOULD HERMIONE DO? One of Charlie Bradbury’s phrases in Supernatural. I’ve been wanting to make a design out of this quote for a whiiile, and I’m glad I finally managed something. The “Hermione” part took so long, I think my legs fell asleep 15+ times. Wish I was exaggerating.

I wanted to draw an actual Hermione bobblehead, but decided against it. 

Also added like 50 subtle grunge textures. Like old times. lol

INKTOBER 007: Fruits are GOOD for you
Jesuits? Jwits? Truits? Jruits? 
I’ve been really rusty with my lettering because of how busy I was last week, so I’m back-ish with a nearly illegible doodle mcnoodle.

INKTOBER 006: Happy Birthday Adrian!

45 minute(1hr maybe?) birthday card for my friend Adrian. Inside layer was an off-white 80lb sheet of paper. The card and paper were bound together with some twine.

Wish I had a bit more time to work on this… would’ve been less crooked.

INKTOBER 005: Half/Half Creamer
I’ve been really busy, haven’t really had time to doodle. Here’s a random thing I did the other day though. The eyes/face are crooked because they’re not the same person. lol Not sure what it’s supposed to mean…
Maybe it could be one of those cheesy anime split screens. HA

INKTOBER 004: Y r u crying tho
Haven’t had much time this weekend, so the lettering was very poorly done and took like 2 minutes of scribbling. But I wanted to mess around with my Aquash brush, so here it is. Reminds me of 5 year old me dipping old markers into water and splattering “paint” on napkins. HA
Good times.

INKTOBER 003: Fattiest Fruit in the Garrison
I’m somehow doing Inktober everyday, wow. lol Doodled this at lunch. Featuring my favorite fruit, the underrated avocado. Based on Castiel’s quote/phrase “funniest angel in the garrison.”  I wanted to make garrison as GARISH as possible. Get it?
@kimzyy: I responded to your question in an ask/fan mail thing, and I’m convinced most of my asks aren’t sending to anyone, so let me know if you got it.

EHY. Guess what arrived. They came out a lot better than anticipated. I know standard cute stationery is like… A3/A4 or whatever though. So I may resize and reorder them if Kriss likes any. The graphics look crisp and are slightly darker than how they look on my monitor, but this is a success overall. Especially considering I printed some from jpgs.
I get a heart attack whenever I print from jpgs.
001: Kriss, Little Red Riding Hood
002: Mr. Ramen
003: Bears are in Space
004: Rum & Coke
005: Cloudy with a Chance of Coffee
006: Steampunk Panda
I’ll post a picture of Kriss’s final gift box once I find a way to package the stationery. The box it came in didn’t exactly survive the journey.

INKTOBER 002: Tumblr personified?

I got distracted from my other projects and doodled a thing early… somehow. So here’s #2 for Inktober! I had to edit out the yellow lighting from my lamp. 

My obsession for galaxies/outer space strikes again.

INKTOBER 001: Sharky
I’ll be doing Inktober every other day! First one features Sharky, my car. If Sharky were an actual shark.

Quick icon for Halloween. Ghost costume for the ever lazy Frying Sausage.

First: Secret project featuring a creepy rough draft of Charles. His legs look weird and peggy. 

Second: Steampunk Panda for Kriss and I accidentally drew Adelina of Granado Espada. If she cut her hair. Kinda. 

The rest are some pictures from Sesame’s dorky birthday celebration with Jessica and Nick. I made hats for Pancake and Charles. Funny there aren’t shots of Sesame herself, but I didn’t make her hat… so yeah. But happy birthday, Sesame! 

This is stationery #6 for Kriss and it should be the last one. My sketch was originally more piratic in nature, but I decided to use a monocle instead. Also decided against the wings. I ended up barely using my sketch at all and added more and more accents until it felt steampunk enough. One concern with the overall design though… the lines are a bit awkward. 

It was pretty fun though and actually kind of reminds me of Shingeki no Kyoujin/Attack on Titan (which I actually loathe to be honest). But I’ve always been obsessed with asymmetrical strappy things, so meh. 

Anyway I’ll be getting all of my Kriss stationery pieces printed soon, woo.

This was a joke design based on the word “captious” for my friend Lee. He draws a lot of random Castiels and Gengars for me, so the least I could do was make a quick dorky dictionary poster for him. 
He wanted “captious.” I threw in other words on a blank book to make it look realistic-ish. Hadn’t used Photoshop in a while, so it was fun.

This is one of the winning loading screen designs I created last year for a Korean MMORPG that I sometimes play. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but my other projects got in the way. lol Anyway the purpose of this contest was to create attractive loading screens that advertised the upcoming patch. 

This design had… maybe 50-70 layers? I didn’t use masks much, hence the duplicate layers. I’ll explain the steps I went through to create this:

1. Found a random image of the girl (Kano) from the official Korean site

2. Teleported/ran to the map with the background/atmosphere I wanted and took a screenshot with my invisible Wizard HA. That’s why you see the sparkles in the second picture. It’s his staff. A lvl100 staff. It’s weak.

3. I masked out Kano and placed her on the screenshot I took.

4. I used handmade brushes and free use textures to begin creating the ambiance I wanted. I essentially wanted a Harry Potter-like magical feel. This is also when I used a lot of adjustment layers to tweak the lighting just enough to achieve this feel.

5. I created the flying papers/photos manipulation to subtly feature the new characters to be released in the upcoming game patch and emphasize the magical atmosphere I wanted.

6. A lot of pen tool and more sparkles and more textures. 

7. Some cheesy verbiage. 

8. Voila.

I do like how this loading screen came out. I’ll post some other loading screens I made sometime soon.
