QDDR mascot love

Happy new year!

I started this year off with some rather silly artwork. I've been meaning to redesign the mascot for Queen's DDR club (the product of combined nerdiness between my friend Andrew and I...). I decided to try a less anime-influenced style, though I think it still came out pretty Asian-flavoured...

Anyway, I'm trying to tap into my tendency to draw cutesy things and combine it with the more fine arts approaches I've been learning this past term. And I just got a 6x11 Wacom Intuos3 to go with a new 21.5" widescreen monitor, and it's incredible! It's a huge upgrade from my little 4x5 Graphire2 I've been using for like 6 years. So I think I'll try doing some non-anime digital art sometime. :)
