Here, have a thing I drew at chili’s. Also I still don’t know how to make things not blurry on this damn phone.
Edit 07/28/14: Scanned image!
Earlier I was super sad. It’s been a rough couple of months and I haven’t really made anything. Hell, anything I felt worth noting.
Then I got this anon earlier.
A lot of people tell me I’m super hard on myself and they’re right. It’s unfortunate. You tell yourself all the bad things so much they become seemingly solidified in stone. Its hard to see a silver lining.
I want to thank you for believing in me.
It was enough to spur me into action. Above are works I’ve done in a sketchbook I keep in my bag. Pardon the blurry quality. A new phone and the camera is a bit wonky. Of all the pics to be clear, I’m glad its the last. I found a post earlier that i decided to scribble on one of the pages to serve as a constant reminder.
One small step for man, one giant leap for Zombie. Thank you, Anon! TTATT
Guess who’s a disgusting piece of trash who’s art will never amount to anything?
So the other night at like 4 am I made this cutie in tektek. Then, the following day in class I decided it would be a good idea to recreate this from memory. From mage-like cutie to evil queen status in ten seconds flat. Nailed it.
YAY SCHOOL DOODLES
Seeing as to how I’m in a coding class for summer, I should be posting more work. HOW EXCITING.
The naga is from before I moved, two weeks ago. Couldn’t sleep. The chick with the Mohawk is my dark elf from skyrim, Asha, and the dude is my attempt at a headcannon look for Farengar, the court Mage of the jarl of whiterun.
My main file is my Argonian and my side is the dark elf. But my bud told me you can marry npcs ingame and I got super stoked and started thinking of stupid fluffy stuff. So, yeah, even though he can’t be married I CAN STILL DREAM.
Brace yourselves, fluff is coming.
So here we have my semester in 3D design in a nutshell.
It’s been a very long four months! The last image is of my final project, which was to be turned in in the middle of the semester. Talk about never-wracking. We were to design a sculpture for our client . Our client happened to be Starbucks. I honestly don’t care that I wasn’t chosen, but I am happy that I passed my final! Got an A, hell yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
So I guess explain each image…
1) Representational: We were to arrange objects into a design and then recreate the design using solely paper products coated in Gesso. Originally, my objects were going to be representative of myself as well as being representational, but as you can see with earlier posts this would prove to be problematic. I then decided on some notebooks on my desk and a cup of my pencils.
2) Non Representational: Taking the design from the first phase, we were to distort the design but still leave enough behind to allude to its origin and function. I wanted to play with juxtaposition of elements in this one, so we have sweeping curves, jagged lines, and a whole array of differently textured elements. There’s an additional image to show you the textures I grew fond of making!
3) Abstract: Now, we extract the essence of both earlier phases and break it down to its most basic form. I burned myself quite badly with this one. No bueno!
4) Final exam: Though the last image in the set, this is when it was done and turned in. We had to make a sculpture, make a budget, do a rendering, call people within the area for quotes, make a progress book, our own company, business cards, the works. The competition was insane! On the bright side, I finally got around to making a logo and business cards for myself!
5) Color Theory: A little calming exercise after the category 5 hurricane that was the final exam. We were to show a shadow and lighted area on a sphere, attempting to create a 3 dimensional object on a two dimensional plane. The color schemes from left to right, top row to bottom row are as follows: monochromatic, complimentary, analogous, and polychromatic. I think it came out pretty good for my first time ever painting with acrylics! I learned a lot! Most of the blending was done by finger, too. I’m really fond of my monochromatic and polychromatic paintings!
6) Conceptual: The first sketched image is my submitted conceptual piece. It was about how something as small as words hook into our very being and tear us asunder from the inside out. It’s amazing how something with no physical form can do so much damage, right? The text written in the background is a collection of some of things that have been said to me over the course of my life.They start initially on a positive note but towards the end they grow a bit bitter. This signifies how the good can become bad over time, if said enough.
While the person depicted as female here, the struggle is felt universally. The wrapping around her chest is meant to signify this (be you male, female, or non binary), while also signifying how we try so desperately to keep it all under wraps. We don’t want people to know there are things going on or that their words have little meaning or effect any more. The hooks are holding up the corners of her mouth to force a smile, because what more can we do when the words have no effect than smile, if only to not appear rude to the person expressing their concern? As for the rest of the hooks, I can hope you understand their meaning, too.
6) Conceptual concept: The instructor didn’t mind if we had more than one idea to present. This was to be my initial piece but somewhere along the line I lost my train of thought. (Probably because I had an exam on the same day right after this class!) It was going to feature a FtM of color while also illustrating how while there is a whole spectrum of color for the gay community, the world seems to focus on only the primaries such as homosexuals and lesbians. This also would allude to how the transexuals, bisexuals, asexual, pan, queer/fluid, etc are considered nonexistent due to the elitist nature that fills the gay world and forces us into the background. Perhaps I’ll try again at a later date.
Ahhhh the full detail looks phenomenal! Again, I’m honored that my work has become a part of your life!
On a side note, your Nemesis tattoo is also amazing, ha ha!
Part one finished. Going back next week for the background and writing.
IT’S EVEN BETTER IN COLOR, GUYS
IM SO HAPPY I COULD DIE
GUYS. GUYS LOOK I’M SO EXCITED.
SOMEONE LIKED MY WORK SO MUCH THEY WANT IT TO BE A PART OF THEM.
