An Exercise in Asymmetry

An Exercise in Asymmetry

We are surrounded by symmetry and patterns, both natural and man-made. It’s something of an obsession for most artists when working on composition. This is why a character like Frankie Stein is interesting due to her use of asymmetry in a lot of her designs. Cecilia and Rhea are something of a study in asymmetry […]

Usagi, Mint and Jasmine!

I really love the Obitsu and Ever After High combination! The proportions just work so well for me. They’re perfect for Makoto Takahashi’s style. Just look at these eyes! The flower wreaths that frame shoujo girls isn’t present but you can almost see it on Mint. These heads are tinier compared to Monster High and […]

Workspace Wednesdays: TENTACLES!

Workspace Wednesdays: TENTACLES!

You may be wondering why there is a sudden influx of… tentacles here at No Nap Time. These tentacles were inspired by “Awoken” by Serra Elinson. “Awoken” is a lot like Twilight with Cthulhu mythos involved (and better written, more entertaining in a lot of ways). If you haven’t read Awoken, I highly recommend it! […]
