Art Showcase: FanArt Bookmarks Vol 1

Just wanted to give everyone an update on the progress of my Artist Alley booth, RealmLocke Designs, for Evansville Geek and Comic Con (For More Info on the Convention, checkout my previous post). So, here’s a little preview of what I’ve been working on…some AWESOME FanArt Bookmark Designs!!!

Spyro, Monster Hunter, NeiR Automata, and Thor
Rapunzel, Belle, and Ariel


For these designs, I took some of my previous drawings and tweaked a few of them to fit in a bookmark shape. For example, the three Disney princesses were all from the same drawing (See original post on my DeviantArt anbumsw). Starting with Rapunzel, I added brush strokes to the background to give it a painted canvas look. For Belle, I added more violet colors and roses to the background. Last, Ariel’s background has more musical and water elements such as the music notes and bubbles.

I’m still working on some other drawings and prints, so once those are done, I’ll be sure to post it here (as well as on DeviantArt, Instagram, and Facebook).

Meowster Hunters: The Lovable Palicos

There’s nya meowster too tough fur a Meowster Hunter to tackle :3 

When I think of Monster Hunter, a few things come to mind. There’s exploration and resource gathering, epic boss-like battles where timing is key, and several weapon types that dramatically change up gameplay (Great Swords are heavy and use charge-up attacks while Dual-Blades are combo focused). Throughout this game’s journey, there’s one group of characters that stick by your side through thick or thin. I’m talking of course about your lovable little cat companions, the Palicos.

Palicos are domesticated bipedal cat-like creatures that belong to a creature group dubbed Felynes. These cats serve as support characters to hunters, providing unique tools and gadgets to trap/stun monsters or buff hunters. They’re eager to help out where ever they can in a hunt, collecting resources or distracting monsters off of hunters. However, they can be lazy and take a cat nap or two while on the job (no pun intended), but when a major problem arises, they take action.


For this FanArt drawing, I wanted to capture the playful/cheerful attitude of these adorable little Felynes. For the character designed, there were many different Palicos to pick from, along with armors and weapons. I ultimately decided on three: Alloy (Middle), Hunter (Right), and Rathian (Left). These three armors seemed are some of the more well known ones, or at least ones I’ve used more often throughout the series. For the breeds, the black and white cat, traditional palico colors (Right), and calico seemed to stand out.

The pose for each Palico was based off of their gestures in Monster Hunter Generations (Prowlico Mode). The middle cat is doing the show off pose, the right cat is in sit position, and the left is doing the dance gesture.

For the background, I wanted something that matched Monster Hunters theme of fantasy. So, the background was designed to look like aged canvas, and the text was designed to be brush like (as if the cats themselves painted it). Finally, I added a fog and confetti for a dramatic entrance (kinda like they are saying “TA DAH!!!”).

Overall, I had tons of fun creating the designs of these characters, and I love how the final pic turned out.

Rooftop Ruins View

NieR Automata 2B

The lovely android warrior, 2B, taking a break from her busy work of hunting robots to enjoy the view of the remains of an ancient human civilization.

NieR Automata is one of my top favorite games of 2017 from its awesome visuals and gameplay to its interesting story and beautiful soundtrack, and character progression

NieR Automata is an awesome combination of Yokotaro’s complex story writing with the high pace character action of Platium Games. The story divides itself into different playthroughs, adding new details and points of view as you switch between the playable cast (2B the warrior, 9S the scout, and A2 the renegade).  I don’t wanna spoil the storyline for this, cause it’s definitely one that has to be seen for yourself.

I decided for this drawing to have 2B without her HUD blindfold on. I figured this would add some character to her face, as well as it just looks cute. This wasn’t an easy character to draw. It literally took me hours to draw 2B, especially due to the elaborate design on her gothic dress (so many lines! lol). Coloring and shading was just as long, but I had tons of fun working on this drawing.

Overall, I’m very happy with how the drawing turned out.

New Prints! Wyverns, Dragons, and Undead Warriors! RealmLocke RedBubble

Been working on some new prints and tees for my RedBubble site (realmlocke-msw), and here is a few of those awesome pics!

Queen and Hatchling

A rare sight to see in the world of Monster Hunter. A mother Rathian caring for her baby Prince of the Skies, Rathelos.

Monster Hunter is one of my favorite game series with it’s awesome boss-like battles and combat system. So, I decided to draw something based on that series, but I wanted to do something that was the complete opposite of the games’ main premise (something serene; a rare sight).

This took me several layers to shade both monsters, and create a background.

Overall, I love how this pic turned out

Reigniting the Flames

The little dragon, with big attitude!

The little purple fireball, Spyro, is making his return in an awesome looking remake of his original PS Classic Trilogy!

For this pic, I decided to draw Spyro standing in front of a version of his is inner dragon, a representation of his attitude.

I thought it was an awesome way to describe this little badass dragon, and I can’t wait for the remake to come out!

Get’ith Wrecked Naive: Sir Daniel Leveled Up

Looks like Sir Dainel Fortesque leveled up from undead hero, to undead badass! lol

I based this drawing off the PS Classic game, MediEval. I combined elements from Sir Dainel’s orginal game with elements of Dark Souls to give him a more badass appearence. The armor design is a combination of Sir Dainel and Solaire (the Sun Bro of Dark Souls).

This drawing was created with a combination of brushes from my Art Flow app on my tablet and Photoshop on my Desktop.

FanArt: Mizutsune the Water Fox

Fanart: Bowing Water Fox

Originally posted on my Instagram (realmlocke_anbumsw)

An adorable Anthro version of the water fox, Mizutsune (Monster Hunter), in an elegant dress. This Leviathan is best known for the fact that it breathes bubbles as a defense mechanism. It also happens to be one of my favorite monsters due to its design and colors, and the fact that it’s one of the few monsters considered normally passive unless provoked.

For this drawing, I focused on making this character look a little more human than creature (kinda like prosthetic makeup or costume). Mainly, I tried to make her face look semi normal by compressing some of the Mizutsune’s features (mainly the snout). I also tried to make her hair resemble quill like fur.

I tried this style in a previous drawing. You can check it out here on the blog, or on my DeviantArt (anbumsw)

Overall, I think it turned out pretty good. Might have to come back and color this later.

Mizutsune belongs to Capcom and Monster Hunter

Samurai Jack is Back

A fanart sketch of the wandering samurai in a dystopian future, seeking a way back to the past to undue the future of the evil shape shifting master of darkness, Aku.

Samurai Jack is one of my favorite shows from my childhood. It was one of the many shows that got me hooked on drawing and sketching. The art style had this mixture of action and beauty. Some scenes had this comic book like appearance with huge battles and combat. Then other scenes would be toned down to allow for more emotion, letting you take in the scenery.

So when I heard Jack was back, I decided to sketch something up. This sketch was inspired by Jack’s new look. It has been several years since Jack was flung into thw future by the evil Aku. He looks like he’s been through hell. He’s covered  in scars and rags from numerous battles. He’s ready to end Aku’s tyranny, so he can finally rest and return to his homeland in the past.

Samurai Jack belongs Genndy Tartakovsky and Cartoon Network/Toonami

Dragon Hearted Maleficent


Dragon Hearted Maleficent.

This sketch was inspired by Disney’s most notorious villian, Maleficent.

Recently I took a trip to Disney world, so I kinda got Disney on my mind. I wanted to create my own variation of Maleficent, so I redesigned her overall look. For this sketch, the dress and overall costume was designed to mirror her infamous dragon form. Overall, I really love how it all turned out.
