Yoki Safari Quick Paint

Yoki_quickpaint, originally uploaded by SnailsvenueDrew.


Just a quick paint of Yoki Safari in Photoshop. No, that's not her middle finger, it's her index finger. ;D

This is a good indication of where her design is heading. I want something very simple, a little Star Wars in nature. I may give her a laser pistol on her other leg, but I haven't decided. She is a warrior princess, though, so she should be well-equipped. We'll see.

Anyway, enjoy!

Just wanted to let you know that there are more prints (including one print of my Link portrait) up for sale at my Etsy shop!

Also, hey look, a new blog header!

Link Portrait Sketch

Link Portrait_Sketch, originally uploaded by SnailsvenueDrew.

This is the sketch for my recent portrait image of Link. As you can see, my sketches are not very fancy. I didn't even think to include all of the intricate designs on the shield and sheath until I was in the vector phase.

Finished image:

You can buy a print of the finished image here:

There are only 2 left for sale at the moment, so act fast!

Etsy shop NOW OPEN!

Hey folks!

My new Etsy shop is now open for business! Find it here:

It's scarce on items (only one print for sale right now) but that will change soon, I hope.

Don't have an Etsy account but would still like to buy signed prints from me? Good news: An Etsy account is absolutely free, so be sure to join up and watch me on there!

Hey folks!

I'm seriously considering opening an Etsy shop to sell prints and stuff on. I could really use the extra cash right now. Question is, would anyone actually buy my stuff?

It's worth a shot. We'll see if I bother.

Yoki Safari Promo Inks

The inks for this:

Some little changes were made from the sketch, most notably the closing of Carmine's eyes. She looked more nonchalant that way, and I prefer that's how she comes off as.

Yoki Safari character sketch

The titular character of "The Quest for Love with Yoki Safari," this is typically what our favorite warrior princess wears (though it is misleading, as she rarely wears a crown at all). The design isn't final, but it's a fair indication of what's to come. Enjoy!

The Mist Stone

In "The Quest for Love with Yoki Safari," the magical Mist Stone brings rain within a certain radius of its location. Rain is scarce where the tiny kingdom of Turnover is located, so King Durango and his team of adventurers go seeking this stone based on an anonymous tip. Unfortunately, the stone is protected with a spell and Durango is shocked and cursed, doomed to slowly but surely lose his sanity.

Yoki Safari Logo

A temporary logo for "The Quest for Love with Yoki Safari." Even though the title may change, and with it, the logo, I intend to keep what I like to call the "tattoo heart" motif in future iterations. Something about it really works for me. Enjoy!

Working on it...


Every time I visit my blog, I am saddened at how awful it really does look. Some people are great at tricking out their blogs, but others (like me) are impatient and uneducated about that sort of thing.

I think the first problem I need to figure out is how to get images to be thumbnails...because I hate how blogger seems to insist on cutting the images off at a certain point. Who would actually prefer that, really?

Anyway, I'm tired, so I'm going to not go to bed, opting instead to stay up too late and play Zelda: Link's Awakening on my GameBoy emulator.

Profile pic

Profile pic, originally uploaded by SnailsvenueDrew.

I figured I'd post this nice and big (well, bigger) since it's so hard to see in my profile and I actually like how it came out.

It is a simple self-portrait of me. That's all. I need to take some time and arm this blog with its own look and feel, as everything is currently temporary. I might go with this light blue/green color scheme, and I'm thinking about giving the blog a new logo since everyone seems to have a hard time reading the font (of course, I have a tendency to pick hard-to-read fonts...).

Anyway, enjoy!

Dragon*Con 2009

Hello there!

So, Dragon*Con 2009, here in Atlanta, came and went this past weekend, and I'm very sad to have seen it go, but I had a great time. Meeting all of the wonderful people and artists has really inspired me, and I hope that next year, I will have a presence there in either the comic artists alley or the art show (we'll see how things pan out, but it's a goal and I'm stickin' to it!). I bought a bunch of stuff that I don't need, as well as some really cool signed prints from the aforementioned great artists I met, and just had an overall fun weekend, which was really great.

To put you in-the-know (don't you feel special), I will be revealing a piece of promo artwork for my new webcomic idea, hoping to get some feedback. A small version of the image will be posted here, but for a larger version, you'll want to check out my DeviantART page (

Anyway, I have to go now. Stay phunky-phresh, homies.

Turnover Concept

Turnover, the setting of my newest original idea, is an upside-down castle town. More on this soon. ;D

Getting There

Hey folks!

Still getting the hang of blogger, so my blog is a tad bit ugly right now. Some of the images are unfortunately cut off on the right side, but I'll figure out if there's a way to fix that soon enough. Just click on the images to see the full art, crop-free.

More images to come soon, I promise.

Wii Fit, as though it were an old Atari product. I won a copy of Punch-Out!! for Wii with this image, which is pretty darn awesome. Thanks to for that.

First Post

Hey there!

I wanted to get an art blog up before Dragon*Con so I could have business cards that would lead people somewhere other than my DA page, and guess what? It's up! There's no art here yet, still preparing that. But while you wait, you can visit my DeviantART gallery here:

Oh, the irony.
