Holy crap! Been a while since my last update, so I should definitely add something in.
Unfortunately I am not participating in this year's Maverick competition as I was wanting to experiment with some more modern engines like the Unreal Engine 3, and acquire some much-needed practice with them. Below is a little scene that's part of a bigger level I'm designing - note that this is an editor shot due to the arrows from the lights. This area isn't player-accessible, it's there for setting the environment more than anything else.
Feel free to leave by suggestions and comments on anything that may seem rather odd - I'll keep them in mind. Just be constructive, please.
Have a cheerful summer! And watch out for mosquitoes.
Yup, there's gonna be yet another Maverick mapping competition this Summer. Last year I entered with the CTF map "Tactical Assault" which received 9th place, so hopefully I will do better this time, especially since I won't be moving. :p
It'll be a TDM / FFA map this time around, and will be entitled "Aquamarine". Can you guess what it could be? Stay tuned to find out!
Well that was a mouthful! Anyways here is a lineart of Sanae Kochiya from Touhou, as I promised to deliver. A lot of work was spent in getting the heads to the correct proportions (I seem to make heads too elongated for some reason) and making the fingers / toes look right.
Here's the lineart for My Little Dragonborn. I should be getting Sanae Kocihya (Le Serpent Serenissime) up soon as well, the sketch is still lying somewhere waiting to be scanned and traced.
I just joined the #SelfTaughtArtists group on DeviantArt to hopefully get some feedback and promotion for my artwork. If you are reading this and know of some other good groups for aspiring artists to submit works to and gain comments and views, that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The Miraculous Overlay is now finished. As usual, you can find it in the Artwork section under 2012.
As you can see I got a few more works planned. One is a chibi version of the well-known Dragonborn warrior from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and the next is a Touhou artwork featuring "Good Girl" Sanae Kochiya. Although I seriously have doubts about the good girl part...
My first public drawing of a dragon; in this case, Neo Galaxy Eyes Photon Dragon. It's actually not as hard to draw dragons as one may think, although the heads were no simple task - having to adapt to drawing the lengthened jaws is easier said than done.
By the way, if you have any suggestions or requests for drawings, don't hesitate to ask. If I get good enough, I may start doing commissions. But I need your feedback and advice, so throw it at me if you have the time! Thank you.
Azusa - Holding the Azalea has been completed. Like with my previous work, you can check it out by going to Artwork --> 2012 --> Azusa - Holding the Azalea.
I noticed that I'm getting a lot more views thanks to the artwork. I received a particularly high amount of visitors the day Stellar Polaris was posted. Seeing as it's becoming a popularity amongst visitors, I'll definitely keep up this hobby. Don't think I forgot about level design occupations, though. Which reminds me, the next Maverick competition ought to be announced soon...
Another lineart - this is Azusa Nakano from K-ON! in more vibrant garb. I used the thinnest line size provided by SAI so that it's more easily adjustable later on - not too mention less cartoony.
