      I have no idea how I haven't seen any of your art until Miles posted the journal about the prints you sent to RT. This stuff is awesome in the literal sense of the word. Incredibly well done and absolutely beautiful. My proverbial hat is off to you.

      Alright after your recent art pieces of badassness I gotta ask. Who would die in a fight, Locus or the Meta?

      • arcita

        2 years ago

        haha i've thought about this! i actually really want to draw them fighting each other at some point--

        anyway, it's hard to say! we know the meta is just a straight up tank, he dealt some serious damage, he took some brutal beatings, and he was nearly impossible to kill. on the other hand, we've only seen that locus excels with a variety of weapons; we haven't seen enough of him in action to judge his combat level in comparison to the meta. in my opinion at least! hopefully the new season will give us some more locus badassery. smiley0.gif

      Your art is awesome. Even more awesome is the fact that all your wall papers are 1366 x 768, so I don't have to re-size them. :D

      First, I would just like to say that I find your work humbling and inspiring. I just got a wacom tablet and have been trying to learn to make digital paintings. I'm currently using photoshop, but I was wondering what program you use. Do you recommend any particular one?

      Seriously, though, awesome work.

      • arcita

        3 years ago

        wow thanks! i'm glad you enjoy my stuff, it's really just the product of weeks of staring at armor trying to figure out how it works. 8)

        i use Paint Tool SAI for all my digital paintings. i like the way it handles brushstrokes and pen pressure. for me it's a lot smoother and more precise. i'm sure those brush settings can be emulated in photoshop as well, i've just never had the patience to figure them out.

        i've used both programs fairly extensively, but i don't recommend one over the other -- i'm just find that SAI works for me better. it's just a matter of what you find more comfortable. if photoshop's brushes are a little cumbersome for you, definitely give SAI a try. 8)

      So with the freelancer contest going on... And your art here being mainly freelancers....
      You have to submit something. But the question is... Who are you going to submit?

      • A5expected

        3 years ago

        Err... I don't know! I find it hard to believe that you couldn't use a old piece. In the submissions I haven't seen anything from Scheree, or Siantash who both have old pieces that they could submit. Although when browsing I think I saw a submission that said it was made 6 years ago.
        On how many to submit I believe it's restricted to one. At least the last time their was a contest it was only one. I think.
        ( It's your decision on what you do, but I'm pretty sure that its restrictive number of entries, and it can be old pieces.)

      • arcita

        3 years ago

        I heard about the contest! :D I'm trying to decide too, we're allowed to submit old work, right? If not I'll have to try to work something out before the end of the month. I don't know how many times we can enter either. ;;

      I have a question about that picture of Maine you posted a few days ago. You said it's unfinished; are you planning on doing his whole body?

      • MrPint

        3 years ago

        Nah it's fine, that happens to me too. I can't wait to see it!

      • arcita

        3 years ago

        oops! i didn't see this comment until just now, sorry for the slow reply! it's still unfinished, but yes, it's a full-body shot. you can kind of see the whole thing in the preview window in the top left-hand corner of the picture. 8)

      Your art is so amazing! You are very skilled; I wish I could have just a fraction of your talent. The armor looks perfect. Keep it up! :D

      • arcita

        ;u; thank you so much! it's just a lot of practice and staring at screenshots till i understand how the armor's formed. i love stuff like that though so it's a lot of fun for me!

    • A5expected

      I can't believe how many crazy good artists we have on RT, and probably twice as many on tumblr.
      Although now I can believe how good you are, you have a job as a graphic artist right?*Very Impressive if so*
      It won't take long before hoards of users start comin for ya though, so I hope your ready ;)
      Everybody loves a good artist <3

        not a coincidence, that's exactly where i got it from! 8D york's one of my favorites and the username wasn't taken on tumblr, so i went with it.

      • A5expected

        3 years ago

        >_< I'm just now noticing this, but did you get foxtrot-12 from the recovery one series? York=Foxtrot-12
        Or is it coincidence?

      • arcita

        3 years ago

        it's really awesome, i'm sad i didn't get involved with the community sooner! there's so much good creative stuff flying around here. 8) and i'm not a graphic artist, technically, i'm a designer -- most of what i do has to do with layouts and web design, not much drawing or painting involved.
        aw, thank you! ;u; though i'm not sure that'll happen, i'm too shy. xD i'm just going to sit here in my corner and draw, if other people like it, then that's all i can ask for. smiley12.gif

        3 years ago

        thanks! 8) they're all of wash because i'd never drawn armor before and i wanted to stick to one set of armor while i figured out how to render it. wash is one of my favorites, sooo he got to be my test subject. i think i'm going to move on to maine and the twins next. smiley1.gif

        oh man i didn't even see this comment, i'm still trying to figure out how to be social on this site. ^^; i've added you back! and i'm all for you drawing more, you should totally do it. 8D
