I'm working on a stupid awesome game

I'm kind of excited because as a game artist, it's important to me to make my own games to understand them better.

With next-gen art, we often get taught to go in one direction--making bleeding-edge, high resolution art, and learning to make the best looking assets.

Learning art and realism and all the wonderful shit that goes with being a game artist is really important, but being able to understand games from a programming/scripting/gameplay perspective is also super important, at least to me.

Girl In Negative Space

Sketch for the night.   I've been doing sketches for months with a tool preset called 2d pencil.  All this time I thought it was the name for stumpy pencil, a really cool PS preset done by an artist that goes by Swamp Flea, but tonight I realised I was completely wrong.

So after months of thinking I was using stumpy pencil, I finally managed to set it up right and here's my first sketch with the tool preset.  I enjoyed it, it was fun and the range from light grey to dark is awesome!   I recommend it, below is the link in case you want to check it out.

Cosmic Dog and nimbus cloud pattern

This cosmic dog drawing was supposed to be part of a cd cover I am working on, but I had to can the idea of it and start over with the concept.  Still so, I was happy with the experiment, so here it is!  Also I worked on a nimbus cloud pattern, which I have included a link below if you would like to check it out.   All clouds are hand made, which sucked cause my wrist hurt a bunch but I am happy with the results, plus, free pattern!

Anyways, I'm hoping to post more and this is my first step this year.

More steps to come soon!

Here's the pattern link:
Nimbus Cloud Pattern

Sometimes you have one of those months.

Where you realize that there's a lot of work to be done to make yourself a better artist, but not a lot of time to do so.
And you gotta just tell yourself to keep going. No matter how shitty you know your stuff is.
Well, self, keep going!

                               So I'm not too happy with the textures but texturing in Mari is bad ass.

a chair and some stuff

New business card...or card. (Never had one before).
Kirk really helped this design work with the addition of the plug on the back. Thanks Kirk!

Oh you, you chair.
