.:].Dragon's.Crown.[:.

Got some time this weekend and was able to do this. I'm a big George Kamitani fan. Odin Sphere and Muramasa are easily some of the most beautiful games I've ever played. Vanillaware is coming out with Dragon's Crown next year and it looks sweet.
I thought I'd do some fanart of the elf lady :P

I also was asked to be part of a panel at the Art Institute on June 6th to talk to college students about working in the REAL WORLD. It was a ton of fun!
(...we got pizza too. >_> ) I was surprised I was the only girl out of 6 people. I talked about my position as an Interactive Game Artist and what it's like doing art and animation on games. Talking about my passions always gets me fired up. Everyone else seemed to work at an actual studio. It was really interesting to hear everyone's story. I kinda felt like I was representing the lil guy. The company I work for is less than 20 people and not as well-known as the other companies that were present. We're small, but we have so much fun. A lot of people came up afterward and asked me questions. It was really sweet, I feel like I made a difference. :)
I also got interviewed by Jesse from Gattacast that same week for an episode of his show. It was pretty interesting, I've never really been interviewed before those two times. Audio sucked in some instances but that was totally my fault. My computer had connected to a random router in our building with a craptastic signal and I didn't realize until afterward. Blah, that part bummed me out a bit. But overall, I had a wonderful time with both. Great experiences! ^-^

  1. I like when you draw elves. It comes very natural for you. PS. I ALMOST didn't think this was you, cause your name is Ashley Mclaughlin i had to think about it for awhile.
