|Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp class of 2005|
I imagine that Sasha and Milla would have a movie based on their adventures, considering they are “world famous super psychonaut agents”. So here they are on the red carpet. I sort of did a very rudimentary drawing of these two in a similar situation a few years back, but decided to do it right (plus give them clothing more fitting their personalities, especially Milla).
OK, I am super proud of this. I really don’t work in computer much, because I don’t have a tablet, only a mouse and an ancient version of Photoshop so it takes forever and is quite clumsy. I really should get a better computer art situation, because while I love the tactile experience of traditional media, it’s fun to experiment. All the lines are done in pen, but all the coloring - including coloring in the black lines - is done in Photoshop. This was fun! I wanna do more like this.
The frustrating thing about traditional media is how poorly it translates onto the screen. Well, on my screen, at least.
Anywho! I’m still super-jazzed about Psychonauts 2 (and will be until they actually release the game, LOL) so here’s some Psychonauts! I draw Sasha and Milla a lot, so I thought it was high time I got Raz, Lili, Ford and Oleander in there, too. I hope to see all 6 of these characters kicking serious psychic ass in the sequel, because they are all awesome.
These were really fun. Milla’s face ended up more off-model than I intended, and it looks like she and Sasha are some sort of 3-legged mutant. Gets a little confusing down there, whoops. Oh well.
Yay, Psychonauts!!! Copic marker on bristol board.
Whew! This is the biggest group picture I’ve ever drawn in my entire life: the whole Whispering Rock Psychic Summer Camp kids and staff from the most excellent video game “Psychonauts”, as translated into my own style.
I’d started this quite a long time ago, but eventually stopped because it was too daunting. But the prospect of Psychonauts 2 got me all pumped up and I pulled out the old sketch and finished it up over the last two weekends home from work. It was challenging, but super fun!

I'm mostly self-taught, sometimes do professional work, but don't get to draw as much as I'd like to these days because I am usually tired and/or at my day job and/or tending to my small flock of sheep and goats. But it's fun when artistic inspiration strikes.|
