Yoko (Pixel Samples)

Made using a recently acquired app, thanks to my patrons contribution: Read the details here
The first thing I decided to do with it was to test the differences between the canvas sizes. At the moment I’ve tested 4 out of 5 of them:
Extra Small(20×16 pix), Small(40x30pix), Medium(80x60pix), Large (160×120), Extra Large(320×240)
Out of all my characters, I decided to pick Yoko for the test, because I feel that her design retains all the main features even when is being reduced in size, which I think is perfect for pixel art characters

Jazmint

Recently I was sketching new characters, and I decided to try to create one with a different body type. I wanted to create a character with a different body type, a round, huggable, but beautiful and adorable girl and she’s the result of it

She started as a human girl, later changed to neko girl, but I finally decided to got for the opposite species. I didn’t leave her as a human just because I wanted to expand the races of my characters, eventually I should have at least one character per race and that would be pretty good

Song of Storms

Just Link, using the most unconventional method to water his magic bean.

Despite I only used this technique in Majora’s mask, I thought a grumpy adult Link would be more fun to see.

I also always assumed the rain started above his head, because of vortex or ray of light that appears around him whenever he plays the song:

Happy new year

Another year goes by, full of new experiences that, for good or bad, helped to build our character.
Despite many people consider that this year has been awful in several aspects, it’s better to focus on all the good stuff that did happen. We have to accept all the challenges that might come, whenever they do, because it’s part of life. You have to stay optimistic even on the darkest and gloomiest scenarios and keep moving forward.
There’s never going to be a perfect year. Maybe a year where good events overcome the bad events. Keep working to improve your life everyday, and never allow sadness and sorrow to stop your ambitions.
Focus on yourself, but don’t neglect the suffering around you. Many times the possibility to improve someone else’s year will be in your hands. If you have the chance, don’t let it slip. Even a small action can make a huge difference.
Remember that even though many special people won’t be able to join us in this new year, their memories and all the moments that we shared with them will be with us for a lifetime.
I thank you for taking the time to visit my gallery, as well as taking the moment to read my yearly reflection. I appreciate each comment, favorite and share of my work, and I want to remind you that I’m always here to listen to any concern. I’ll be sure to answer as soon as possible.
Special thanks to my patrons for their support, and thanks for making this year extra special. 
We have to be grateful for the goals we achieved, and keep working for those things that we wish to obtain. Happy new year, I’ll see you around 

Un año más se va, lleno de nuevas experiencias que, para bien o para mal, van forjando nuestro carácter.
A pesar que muchos consideran que este año ha sido pésimo en muchos aspectos, es mejor enfocarse en las cosas buenas que sucedieron. Tenemos que aceptar los desafíos y retos cómo y cuándo vengan porque es parte de la vida. Hay que mantenerse optimistas sobre el escenario más sombrío y seguir caminando hacia adelante. 
Nunca habrá tal cosa como un año perfecto. Tal vez un año en el que la cosas buenas superan a las malas. Trabaja por hacer que tu vida mejore día con día. Nunca dejes que la tristeza y la melancolía detengan tus aspiraciones. 
Enfócate en ti mismo, pero no seas indiferente al dolor ajeno. Muchas veces estará en tus manos la posibilidad de cambiar positivamente el destino de una persona. Si tienes la oportunidad, no la desaproveches. Incluso una pequeña acción puede hacer una gran diferencia.
Recuerda que a pesar de que muchas personas especiales ya no podrán acompañarnos en este nuevo año, su recuerdo y los momentos que compartimos con ellos siempre nos acompañarán durante toda la vida.
Agradezco a las personas que se toman su tiempo para visitar mi galería, y aquellos que decidieron leer esta reflexión anual. Aprecio cada comentario, favorito y share de mis trabajos. Quiero recordarte que siempre estoy disponible para cualquier duda, trataré de responder tan pronto sea posible.
Agradecimientos especiales a mis amigos en patreon por su apoyo y gracias por hacer este año extra especial. 
Hay que ser agradecidos por las cosas que conseguimos y seguir luchando por aquellas que añoramos obtener. Feliz año nuevo, nos vemos pronto
