    Ningishzidda

    Izikisikil Śesa Ningishzidda


    Ningishzidda

    Izi Ningishzidda is an artist and philosopher from the fabled land known as Mythic Scribes. An illustrator interested in all things graphically novel, Izi (also known as Highness Na-O) spends her spare time hanging her dead pets from the cobweb-colored picket fence in her front yard, and alternately taming/fighting off stray mušḫuššu and basmu attracted to the carcasses. Since there are a lot of them, she sometimes paints them.

    A Tarot card designer for her alma mater, The Abrahadabra Institute, Na-O is a self-professed mutational alchemist, a moniker deriving primarily from her years spent in deep study of the famed Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

    Na-O has existed in a near-permanent state of comatose-like meditation in order to better comprehend the vast nature of the universe, so as to better channel her artwork. Her medium of preference, finger painting with a concoction of goat’s blood, glitter, and Bear Gryll’s urine has been the subject of both praise and controversy.

    The King of Blades was a melding of my face below on the right and my fiance's face, who is below on the left. The background is heavily edited graph of the internet from The University of Washington's computer labs courtesy of a friend of mine who is a student there.

    I'm curious if you store your traditional media stuff's on the internet somewhere?

    I thought that I'll tell some of my thought's bout the King of Swords, his face seems slightly deformed, a bit flattened, main thing that confuses me as a wiever is that it you kinda want to play with that face like with a sculpture mass and add more depth to the eyesockets, pull the nose closer to me When I look at his necklace, it looks so damn cool rendered, I can almost touch it, dont be so afraid to try such more contrasting values, forms on the face aswell!

    Thanks for mentioning it. I did work five hours on him since the last post and fixed the nose, but also framed the face and chin better to make it more defined, as suggested. You are so right about the eyesockets, and he looks so much better now.

    As for the traditional art, I have it on hand, and you're welcome to it.

    These all fit the following criteria of traditional art: Painted or drawn from life in an academic tradition (with the exception of the Amur leopards done from a photo exclusively) and not edited with digital imaging software.

    Wow, it really seems that you put much more soul when you work with trad media, aswell it's more subtile than the digis, not sure what zhongqiu jie is, but that still life looks really amazing, the contrast and softness is nicely combined I gotta say

    Watch out over the ribcage of venus, seems quite missing some mass, body seems a bit squeezed in the belly area and the neck quite doesnt fit in the body, too long imo.

    Few cents from me, hope it helps somehow

    Not sure what you mean since I havn't posted any of my finished digital works for almost two years. It does help knowing if I go back to oil and charcoal I may have something marketable as I have another show planned now that I am recovering from the divorce.

    Once I finish the deck I will post a bunch of the images here and then you can decide if they're any good.

    Oil and charcoal are my favorite traditional media, ,because the value gamut is so broad - charcoal is said to have the closest ability to mimic lifelike value.

    zhongqiu jie is a persimmon, a mooncake box and a jade horse.

    Just a graphic/text project I'm starting. I would like to be able to post more so I needed another project besides the Mutational Alchemy tarot.

    well it's a template used for 78 cards. 4 elements, 64 hexagrams, 16 geomantic characters, 12 astrological attributes, 32 *pentagrams, various layered elements for use on the fonts for the different suites, court cards, majors, minors...It would be a night mare to sort that out without labels. As you can see, the painting process itself goes unlabelled until it gets a little more intricate as I play with various backgrounds and such. Thanks for the compliment.
