      Oh look, ART

      2 years ago

      Here, everyone. Have my senior thesis project, the source of much pain and suffering over the last 12 weeks or so. This and two detail images are currently on display at the FSU Museum of Fine Art in large format prints that turned out beautifully - this one is a 30"x40" print. I am happy. This means I get to graduate and stuff. Now I just need to survive opening reception for the grad show this Friday...

      Sculpted, textured, and rendered in ZBrush 4R5. Composite and image editing done in Photoshop CS6. Clicky to see it all big and stuff.

      So...

      2 years ago

      I thought I'd pop in and say hi.

      What have I been up to, you ask? (Or not. That's cool too.)

      Well...

      My thesis work. I graduate this semester. Oddly, I've become a 3D digital artist, which I never really saw coming. Who knew.

      I've taken on an internship at an arts and technology research institute and gotten involved in 3D printing. I've helped build one of the six largest 3D printers in the world. I design print builds and other fun stuff like that, when I'm not doing other glamorous things like cleaning my boss's office or curbstomping plywood.

      I've played a hell of a lot of Mass Effect.

      I've not slept a lot. (Refer to the thesis work comment above.)

      I've married Sasha. Easily the best move of my life.

      So, denziens of RT, what have you been up to?

      I'm not on here much anymore, and things will probably remain that way. If anyone wants to keep up with me, you can add me on Facebook:

      Okay, so. I've finally gotten back on this art thing, since life has allowed me a breather. Today, we have a speedpainting of possibly my favorite video game villain, Saren Arterius from Mass Effect. This is one of Sash's roleplaying characters, so...yeah, we're dorks.

      Anyway, has. About 3-ish hours worth of work.

      Also, have a picture of what I wore today. I look like I'm about to kill someone, but at least I'd do it in style.

      Might have to wait a day or two for the next bit of artwork, folks. Life intervened hard. Nothing terrible, just obscenely busy. Managed to do a bit today but it's not worth showing yet. I'll get there.

      Day one: But I'm a Geth sympathizer...

      3 years ago

      Yeah, you heard my rants about the Quarians. So how the fuck did I end up with a Quarian character?

      Anyway, yes. Yara'Zeena, no surname or ship affiliation, as she abandoned her pilgrimage and slipped underground. Can usually be found on Omega picking locks and pockets, and trying to evade various merc gangs. That is, when she's not drinking herself into oblivion. I have a lot of characters that do that.

      This is way, WAY rough. About 30 minutes total worth of work, mostly with me bitching at the references. It's also a little late, but I had a long and busy day today. Kind of surprised I got anything done.

      Anyway, has and enjoy.

      Okay, LET'S DO THIS

      3 years ago

      I have been seriously art-avoidant for the past few months. Considering the chaos that is my life, this might be understandable, but it's really beginning to eat at me. Things I would very much like to do are being left undone. So, I need a kick in the pants - something to get me back in the practice of doing art regularly so I can kind of feel normal again. Well, as normal as I can get.

      As such, I am embarking on a Character-a-Day spree, starting tomorrow.

      I roleplay, because I am a dork. A DORK, I tell you. I have a gazillion characters (okay, maybe that's a little bit of an exaggeration) and a few spare personas, most of which I have never done art of. As such, I shall portray each and every one of them as they exist in my wee little brain. Some are from existing universes, others are from universes of my own creation, and a handful are alter-egos. But hey, I figure people might like to see them. Or not. So I'm going to spend the next...um...however long getting them all out, at least as rough sketches or speed paintings. I can't promise they'll all be spectacular, but we'll see how this goes. I might even add some of Sasha's characters into the mix, if he wants me to. (And he does, I know he does.)

      At present count, there are sixteen drawings to do. If I add Sasha's list of characters to the list, I'll be drawing one every day for the next ten years. smiley7.gif

      ETA: We're counting Sash at 28 characters, at me at 21, as I had forgotten a few. Whoa.

        You're an art student. 'Tis forgivable.
        I have no idea what Art and Dubstep have in common, but... reasons?

        I resisted until I discovered Excision, and realized that I'm a total sucker for filthy, FILTHY wobble and bass.

      Well, so far I've been... sort of.. reverse drawing. I make really thick lines in paint, then go back and edge out what I don't want to be there to get the final line. It works pretty well for me, oddly. I think you saw one of the pictures I did that way... roosterteeth.com/members/images/image.php?id=3128494

      The charcoal thing sounds perfect, though. I'll do that.

        Yeah, I vaguely - very vaguely - recall charcoal pencils from high school art. I never did too well, only took one semester of it, was too busy doing drafting. heh. But I've always wanted to be an artist. I've always wanted to get more on paper than just words.

        I think I told you already that you really inspired me with your comment about not working on a white background, and a friend of mine's stories got me all needing to be artsy so I started drawing the characters in paint and found I was actually liking the results, so now I want to expand and see if I really can be any good at this.

        Thanks for the tips and I'll be sure to come running to you, no doubt. smiley1.gif

        I love that drawing. smiley12.gif

        Do what works for you, and experiment a lot. A lot of artists get stuck in safe zones because, well, doing new things is scary and failures happen. Try to avoid seeing all the flaws and learn to love your work, even if it's a failed experiment (says the queen of abusive self-criticism, who is currently hating on her Meta painting).

        Have fun with your art. smiley0.gif

        Also, charcoal will allow you to do all sorts of reverse drawing. Get vine charcoal and a kneadable eraser, completely cover a sheet of paper in charcoal, and erase away to your heart's content. Those kneadable erasers also conveniently double as stress balls.

        Let me know if I can help you out at all. smiley12.gif
