Can't believe I've been absent for like 3 years or so.  Man those 3 years went way too fast for my liking.  But it is done!  I have completed my Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging and now call myself a Visual Artist.  Why visual, well I have dabbled in several areas of design, film making, 3D and various other topics over the 3 years and have broadened my range of skill.  I still focus heavily on my illustrations in character design and concept art but since discovering 3D and Zbrush you'll find it hard to get me away from my computer :)

I have just gone an uploaded a series of work that is from about the last year and half, including my major project for my third and final year.
Poison Study Project by Suzika-suz 
This is a collection or quick look at my major project.  It was all self initiated this year, we had a brief from lecturers but we were basically planning our own assignments.  I created a series of character designs and concept art for Maria V Snyder's novel Poison Study.  Over the year I had to focus on a few aspects of the novel such as Yelena and Valek so over summer I plan to create the rest of the characters from the first book.  There was a lot of working drawings and sketches so to see the whole lot go to my Facebook page, or my Portfolio site

Something New!!!! by Suzika-suz
Harpie Sculpt by Suzika-suz
As I mentioned before I have discovered 3D and the above image is some of my better work for this year, you'll no doubt see more popping up over summer, NZ summer.  And of course below that is some clay sculpting work that I have also gotten into and plan to do more with over the summer as well.

I think that's about it for an update, I'e graduated, I'm participating in NaNoWriMo, I'm looking for full time work and will probably open commissions at some point and yeah I'm back on DA :)


May Challenge // Draw my OC's // Day 16 by Suzika-suz
May Challenge // Draw my OC's // Day 16
For the month of May I have set myself a 31 Day challenge to revisit old and new Original Character designs 

This piece was a character design and slight play on the old flag referendum we had here not too long ago.  We didn't vote for change in flag because no one liked the way the Prime Minster went about the whole thing.  But someone made a comment that the chosen design looked like it had a feather on it so that is what I played with.  This started as a concept and still is (I want to do it A3) but I had a lot of fun with it.

I did this in gouache with a limited colour range.   See the video process here.
