PS, If anything really weird is ever reblogged onto this account full blame goes to the boyfriend who doesn’t understand how to work Tumblr.

So, sorry in advance for non art related things here.  I try and catch them pretty quickly, but I don’t always.

Anyway, for my stupid junk, please follow kikithings.tumblr.com
For my boyfriend’s weird reblogs he sometimes puts onto my account, see cheesyorangepeels.tumblr.com

As part of the Girls Make Games http://girlsmakegames.com/ campaign I worked with, which was a summer camp dedicated to getting young girls into gaming, the woman in charge of the program asked me to illustrate how working with the camp felt for me, PERSONALLY.  This is what I came up with!There was honestly just something magical about watching girls design something that truly spoke to them.  They were so excited, and so passionate that I couldn’t help but be moved, even though there were a LOT of unicorns.https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2020158234/girls-make-games-grand-prize-winnerJust a couple hours left of the Kickstarter!!!

There was honestly just something magical about watching girls design something that truly spoke to them.  They were so excited, and so passionate that I couldn’t help but be moved, even though there were a LOT of unicorns.

I took a break from my professional assignments.  This was supposed to be a silly doodle of Mera, but it sort of turned into a Photoshop experiment where I just let myself have fun.  Success I think!

I think I’ll delete the photos soon and just leave up this video of Yoda Archimedes for Comiccon

So today I found out that someone got a tattoo of my art on their arm, hahaa.  I stumbled into it on Facebook and was like “WOAH!”  Forever.  Ultimate compliment.Anyway, rock on girl!  I may help her design her next tattoo, too!For everyone’s future reference, if you’d ever like to use a piece of my artwork for a personal NON-commercial use, contact me with your reasons, and I’m normally pretty lenient on this so long as I get full credit.

The mock up level art assets for my team on Girls Make Games!http://girlsmakegames.com/I really can’t promote this cause enough :)!  This is a summer camp dedicated to getting young girls into game design, and had a series of artists work with teams of girls to bring their game ideas to life!  They had to write, design, and pitch their idea as well as pull up references, and approach us very professionally, expressing what’s important for their game, and what type of style they want, etc!There was definitely a lot more I could have done with this, but I honestly only had about 3 days to work on it (I have massive deadlines that I need to work on!!)  I have a couple more things I’m creating for them, but I think I need to wrap it up about now!  I am VERY excited to see the girls’ final prototype.

Preliminary sketch work and graphics for Girls Make Games, http://girlsmakegames.com/ a summer camp for girls who are into game design! The girls pitched their projects to me, and this is the team I asked to be a part of!! Fat unicorns and fantasy are things I love!!  The girls will actually be taking the artwork I deliver to them and turning it into a fully functioning game!  I’m excited for them!I’ve been having a little too much fun with this project, and the girls were a BLAST to work with!  Going to pull an all nighter to deliver some assets to them (also because I have so many other projects, OOF!)

A completed private commission for a complex single character with background :)  This was for Draphilius on FA, of his super gorgeous Kellashee character, Faustorian Mavendorf who is magical in origin, but mechanically inclined, thus he’s working on a mechanical being he discovered broken in the forest.Because my last painting was so WARM in color, this was absolutely fun with it’s cool color palette! I’m very glad I got to work on this.If you’re interested in getting a commission similar to this in terms of detail and style, I’ll open up for one more slot in the middle of August.  Contact me for questions at kikidoodlecommissions@gmail.com

Every time I full view my art, I am like “Oh shit I’m a terrible artist…”
Then I zoom out and am like “Oh yeah.  Wait.  That’s right”

EVERY TIME.
