eclectic rhapsody- omg ;0; thank you for the kind words!!!
James Gerard- Thanks man! Your favorite one was my favorite one to paint XD
So I love doing silly body type exercises from memory, it really helps you loosen up and get creative with idea's and create a personality/look for character designs :0 And I need to do more creature design :0000 ANDDD I need to finish this environment >:0 I'm gonna do more ice scenes with villages and characters yay!
Jessibelle- Thank you love I try to literally "put yourself into your work" XD Give it that flare that expresses you? It takes time to get there though @_@;;
Grezessnik- Thanks man, when I do the exercises I do them from memory
1. mma study (thanks to appburst on flickr) 2. a lemon 3. an old ass GBA SP
4. more anatomy stuff 5. brush experiment 6. really animu faces from memory (TRYING to push colored lines more) XD 7. fixing things that are wrong.
Did 2 quick one hour speedpaints from photo's I took. I am starting to get that art motivation back, I realized today at work, while I was designing two blackboard signs, I don't want to work retail for the rest of my life
1.Neighbors backyard 2.Leaving Boston
Can't wait till I can start making these enviro's from memory
Suncut- Thanks man! I'm trying to kick my butt into gear!
Umbravita- I'm glad you like, thanks man!
Jessibelle- Thanks, I was so happy to paint that picture ;u;
More practice ;u; My theme was the grand canyon, found some nice pictures from flickr to study.
Did them all last night, the first one was a few hours, the next two were 1 hour max. I'm gonna be honest though I struggle a lot with the color, I got really confused. Trying to become faster!
I have not posted in 2 months a lot of shit has gone down since then. I got into a bad car accident on my way for job training, a lot of things went down hill after that. I also got incredibly sick shortly after that. My lovely 27 inch imac decided it hates life, so the harddrive broke. I got it fixed mid september, and 2 weeks later it decided to break again...... (never use a wobbly table ever with a 27in imac. EVER)
So im stuck here using my 6 yr old laptop that crashes every time i open photoshop xD while my baby is fixed, I ordered a wall mount so my harddrive wont break anymore. My mac should be grateful i love it no matter how many times it dies xD
But i have made a lot of art! Mostly sketches, which i will share once my imac is back I have started to consistently oil paint again, which makes me happy. And Im going over old portfolio pieces and fixing them still taking my time, which is good, I like going at my own pace.
1: palate 2: self portrait 3: self portrait 4: my friend 5: random concept 6: infested human solidified 7: progress
Vamping up old portfolio pieces for illuxcon in nov @_@; apple still has my computer, and they found out it was the power supply inside that broke xD; i'm having such bad luck xD; still trying to do my best with this old laptop ;0;!
not focusing on technicalities like perspective with this one xD focusing more on mood and color. this is almost done, iím just gonna add a few more elements and adjust some colors.
Oh wow, your art is inspiring me...are you living in the outskirts of Boston??? Those enviroment paintings from earlier remind me of somewhere...maybe just the area as I am here too!
We are lucky enough to have fall coming around now...hope to see some great stuff with the gorgeous New England fall foliage coming about...hopefully I can get down with digital enough to get some decent paintings coming around this time....
Keep at the updating!
spitboi7- omg! I'm not going to say exactly where, but yes more or less I live in boston Fall foliage is magical! I have been taking lots of pictures! Are you going to art school in Boston? I just graduated from Massart!
Yay, so my computer issues are fixed. I am happy. and I can finally start producing again *u*!!!
A crit is welcome on my painting ! Im focusing on pushing color/atmosphere and mood! And still trying to keep it loose, but clear I think if i tone down the cave, to the value of the trees, it will look a lot further back in space!
Also the heads underneath are a fun exercise! I took an old OC and tried to draw him 10 different ways I'm getting frustrated because my stuff looks anime-ish from my head, so I'm practicing drawing portraits so I can develop my own style
p-sage- haha yes ichibutt is just the silly little nickname I give him :> his real name is IchiBA, I've had the character since I was like 12 years old. I'm not really too sure why I called him that xD;
More pieces being revamped for my portfolio for illuxcon o.o im so nervous!
These are both still w.i.p.s but they are progressing Im having so much fun with these!
cerealist- thx man xD!
Okay so Illuxcon was absolutely amazing, there was a million talented artists that made beautiful magic happen on their canvases. I got some very interesting and helpful feedback from artist's about my work too, most thought I should become more realistic, some thought I should become more cartoony, and I agree with both opinions xD.... and I've decided that I'm going to somehow develop 2 different styles xD; or merge both and make a megastyle.
and..... skyrim has overtaken my life...
Pure total inspiration!!!...and....you can put Skyrim down...I have just managed it You have to put Skyrim down, because I need to see more!
Damien Levs- Thanks man Hahahaha yeah, I had to remind myself a couple of times I'd loose my job if I didn't stop playing XD Lololol Such a good game!
rich4rt - Thanks very much *u*
Luke Oram- Thanks! Glad the painterlyness is still coming through
More single object stil lifes xD; Maybe one day when Iím feeling bold Iíll paint something more interesting .u. Hopefully. These two were some of the toughest objects I think Iíve painted in a long timeÖ.
hey viki oh, just discover your works, it's really good, your paintings are coming nicely,
the lot of studies pays.. I like your design in general and also the pages with red ink full of poses and shapes, keep on sharing!

mariea- Thanks so much dear !
bouroune- Thanks very much glad you like it xD
Working on a self portrait trying a new technique. I like my brush strokes with acrylic, but canít get that with oil. So I decided to try a value under painting, and Iím then going to overlay and glaze color with oil. Apparently it works, so we will find out xD;;
New work finally!!!
I'm starting to get my drive back and I'm painting faster than before! I like these characters designs even if they still aren't fully realized, but they are almost done and then I turn them into character sheets. They will be so badass once I define their weapons and garments more.
Let me just say, your work is an inspiration. You use of colors is amazing and I really do find it breath taking.
