I'm done with deviantart

Ok. So I originally posted this on deviantart but no one really seemed to like it. I ll admit it could be better. But It just seems unfair that some works get more views than others. I can understand something like a blog being neglected but not on a social website designed to expose one's work. I simply do not have the time to "scratch someone's back" so that they scratch mine. In other words, I cannot spend all morning commenting on all of the work it takes to get exposure to my work. Oh well, I realized today after going back into my box o' artwork that my imagination became stale recently and I;m not sure why. The drawings I did before had substance where as now It feels rushed.....wait...I think I'm rushing life away lol. Soooooooo now that I realize that, I'm going to make a conscience effort to do the best work I can do....which unfortuneately I dont think I've done recently.
anyways Im frustrated by the antics of deviantart and although theer are alot of talented artists there they are being neglected in favor of lesser beings haha...if you are a member you'll understand what I mean and that I'm not bashing anyone's work. Im hurt.....anywho this is my take on a Mario Party, complete with poker...although I didnt think that they still has to be rated E

OK whenever you travel a long distance, you tend to have a GPS to help you on your journey,(at least my tech savvy generation haha. So upon using the now defunct Magellan guide, it came to my attention that the voice was a woman. Now my imagination wouldn't let a woman be named Magellan, so I came up with a new name for her - Maggie Lan. Now, I was wondering who was Maggie? Why would someone choose to live their lives inside a box to give directions? What would life be like to work for GPS? I decided to create a character for Maggie, when she first started and this is more or less, what I came up with. Alittle different from the original but I figured I could use this character for something in the future so who knows. It may take further itirations before I can be sure this is the ideal Maggie but for now it'll have to do lol.

a newie and an oldie

So I finally got around to finishing this little acrylic painting although Ill probably go back in on the face....but on the bright side it's somewhere I can leave it for right be honest i started it alooong time ago , likke maybe in march or april so it's been along time coming. As for the pencils, those were done sometime ago as well, probably around december of last year! But I liked this one alot and I figured I'd have to post it to my blog, seemed only fitting Id add something more for me and others to see hehe

A boy's childhood wish

this was a weird one. but it's watercolors, colored pencil + photoshop touchups.
just marker.

So I have been busy. I bought some more art supplies for the trip so I should be ready to produce some great things over the next few weeks. I should be animating but I dont know if itts a good idea, but we will see next quarter how much not animating is going to affect me. Anywho I m studying so that's just as good I year is going to be different!

a feilong tribute/warmup sketch

Soooo this is a warmup for the day...I really should be drawing more, but I dunno. Lately I've been thinking maybe I should go into illustration or sequential art as well. I would love if if I could do everything but I guess that's probably asking too much. Oh well, it's cool for now I guess.. IN the mean time, here we are with morning sketch number one lol.

therandom scribbles part point 5

Sooooo , I've gotten the idea that I need to steadily upload new work everyday, regardless of how crappy it is in hopes that I can see my progress from somewhere other than just my two-four eyes lol. These aren't that bad and hopefully I can do some digital painting if I can find the time, woohoo....t minus two weeks until Vermontian/Mississippian vacation!

Screen Design Final woohoo

Well it's the end of Scad for the quarter woohoo, which for me means a long break to do more art work or nothing at all, which at this point is not an option. So anyway this is the final I did for my Screeen Design class and boy did it take alot of time away from me. Anywho it's cool because it';s something i worked really hard on and I think it shows for the most part. I was trying to get a paper feel with things that I mean in illustrator which wasn't as hard as I thought but getting it all to work in after effects was probably the hardest part. Anywho, anywho who are looking at this check it and let me know what you all thing. Ciao :)

more work i've done recently.

ok I really have been working promise

I'm totally behind on my posting. I'm going to go and post at least every few days so if anyone is watching my work, I can get feedback and have a collective body ofmy work. Also, despite I may not like my animation I have to start posting that as well, despite what someone may say about it on , say, youtube. So tell me what you guys think :)

more postings I'm lazy

well I guess it has a been awhile. Alot has happened. I finally feel I reached a place with my girlfriend's brother that I never thought would happen. It makes me feel good when you have the approval of the family of the person you are madly in love with. I got an xbox 360 elite which is pretty sweet and I made it through finals week(posted works) on the dean's list and ready for a much needed vacation in Vermont. So far so good I guess. A new quarter has started at Scad and ive to get on the ball to get financial aid. There is alot to do but I'm optimistic. But for now I'll leave these works hopefully someone sees them and comments, anything is helpful. I'm out.

Fruits of my Labor

Just another post of work from today. I figure it helps me if I look at my work from the screen of the computer that way I'm more objective and I notice mistakes so that i can fix them later. Also I think I'm going to start posting animations I do too...I just started doing them recently(i'm behind) but I figure its better I start now before it's too latehehe

There was a time in my life when i was content with just producing "lineart". But now that I'm getting to be a bit wiser for my age at least, I m starting to notice that color is what makes life interesting. Sure I'm not really interested in imitating life too closely, however, lately since I've taken my color theory class I've been seeing everything in a different light. I'm finding the best works in my eyes, are in color or at least using a bit of chiaroscuro.....I'm finding I guess what makes being an artist so great....sure I could ramble about all of this, but I'm sure all artists come to this at some point in their lives....I'm just glad I'm starting to realize it now before I get too old to accept change....which by my point is around 20 or so years to go lol. Anywho this whole "going to artschool" thing is the greatest thing to have ever happened to me, and I'm glad Im taking this step because in the end I'll be that much closer to achieving my dream of working at my top three animation studios HOORay!!!!

another experiment

i figured id post this seperate simply because id never used a sumi brush and the marks I made with it were truly so cool that I hung this on my wall lol.....I dont feel its very technical but I like it regardless...kinda gave me an idea for a character, a very raw samurai who moves like the ink flows...sounds interesting hehe maybe a senior project when i get around to that. I also decided to post a couple of other things I did was for drawing class the other one was just to see if I could do that particular style..didnt come out too bad i suppose

im too lazy

It's not that I'm not constantly doodling....its just that I never seem to get around to posting the work I've in a sense I am lazy. But on the bright side, I have to admit Im enjoying branching out into other artstyles. Yes, I want to be an animator, but I want to be able to be versatile...there are too many things out there worth seeing and painting...I'll admit my eyes are still opening and crusty as I'm just waking up with this but school is helping alot with it. these were experiments with pastels....the cartoony one was a watercolor/pastel which i guess didnt turn out too bad.

Something new in everyday life

This is my first art post on a blog so I'm kinda nervous. No one may notice it but then again someone might. It seems like alot of what I believed about artists in the industry of animation and games and such, was that they only did dinosaurs and cartoons and ninjas, nothing more. But an artist, regardless of their discipline learns to appreciate art in all forms. I feel that's what makes a great artist. Regardless of whether or not I live to become a great artist, or even recognized as having talent, enough talent to work in the field of animation, I will always enjoy doodling and drawing things of all types..Art is fun, art is love, art is that last chip in your favorite brand, or that cute girl you later marry.....its alot of things and sorry if its too philosophical but i figured it sounded great that way. So begins the postings of my soul.
