The Art of Izzy Izzguard!

Postby IzzyPanda » Thu Jun 24, 2010 5:25 pm

Hi, I'm relatively new around here c: I was IzzyGuard on the old boards, replying to topics every once in a while.
I'm a little shy.
I have been a student at the Animation Academy for about a year now and I've known Charles a bit longer.

Charles has asked me a few times if I could show some stuff here. I've been kinda holding back for really stupid reasons(I'm sorry C) but now I finally have the got myself to share a few drawings with you all.
I draw lots of anthro art and various monsters.
My main influence is Don Bluth's work. In fact at AN night back in May, I gave him 'All Dogs Go To Heaven' fanart :D
I've also been very much inspired by the art of Charles Zembillas.
By any means I am no professional, the only work experience I've had was a few art commissions here and there for a dog food business and some people in the furry fandom.
I am not gonna tell you my age just yet. I want you to throw away age for a second. I can tell you though, I am young.
This is my main character Izzy the panda. I kinda use her as my identity online. I have an entire back story and plot for her I want to adapt into a comic book series. This was done in photoshop cs3.

This next one is Izzy's alter ego. She also has a story. I did this one traditionally.

This is a friend of Izzy's in the series. He's a western/european dragon with these big, sharp, snaggle teeth.

I'd post more but the maximum uploading per post says 3. I'll upload more if you guys would like to see more.

I hope you like my drawings!

Nice work! I especially like the way you laid out the colors you're using for the characters. Show your thought process and how your approach the appeal of your character. Good job!

I know how good you are and I've seen artwork from you that's even better than this. I have complete faith in you and believe in your future. I know you're going to make a big statement someday with your art. Thanks for posting here Izzyguard. I want the AN world to see what you can do. Looking forward to more.
