Too bad there isn’t time to do everything

Busy with some freelance work and the weekly Final Fantasy comic, but I will be getting back to scientific illustration soon.

A Black-eyed Hermit Crab (Pagurus armatus) using the shell of a Lewis’s Moon Snail (Neverita lewisii).

The first image is a phantom view, and the second one is an animated gif, both showing what the hermit crab’s body looks like inside the shell.

(Apparently animated gifs is the cool thing to do, so I thought I’d see how it can enhance scientific illustration.)

Finally starting this personal project of mine, now that I feel I can tell this story well. To start, here are some finalized face designs of the four main characters.

I’m starting a webcomic! If you like elemental magic and epic adventures (and dragons), follow my comic at escarion.tumblr.com

Nimona doll!

I was so excited to meet Noelle at TCAF that I made her a Nimona doll because I love her webcomic. I forgot to take a picture of it when it was done since I finished it like RIGHT BEFORE heading into TCAF, but she posted it on Twitter :D

I used to sew plush sculptures and cute things a while back, but I do it rarely now since hand-sewing takes so long.
