I've been spending most of my time working this summer, and unfortunately haven't had much time for internet and drawing. Submitted some new art to the portal though, but nothing new for those that actually go to the art forum and look at my thread.
I've been going in a slightly different direction style-wise. I've been working on making my drawings simpler, and with more deliberate use of hatching for my rendering. It's still a work in progress, but I'm enjoying how much faster I can draw this way.
I'm planning on expanding on this more once I'm back up at school and have more time + access to better equipment. I'd like to try and do these as drawings on nice, polished wood. I sort of messed with this idea earlier last semester, but didn't get a chance to pursue it. Here's a pic below of the practice ones I made on just cheap pine. The nicer ones will probably be done on ash.
but something he gave me a year ago in 3 days may be making a special appearance at Pico Day.
New event we're running out of the Art Forum that will take place the first Friday of every month.
Next Friday at 8pm NG time, we're going to flood the Art Portal. The goal is to completely dominate the front page of the portal with works that all have the same thumbnail and revolve around a common theme, as well as encourage people to vote & review the works of everyone else who participated.
This can be a great opportunity to get more notice for your work, and to get some great feedback while having fun.
This coming floods theme is Black Cat. The theme can be as loosely or literally interpreted as you want. Be it an actual cat, a superhero, pirate ship, wutevs.
For more information, and to chat/post wips/shenanigans, go check out the thread!
Spread the word! The more people we can get involved the better it'll be!
A friend and I are going to be biking from Pittsburgh to Washington DC this coming weekend, and we're trying to figure out some cool/interesting things to do once we're there.
Seemed like a good idea to ask you kind folks. Anybody have any suggestions, or want to hang out?
Ng'er Mabelma interviewed me for his blog. I've never done anything like this before, so was kind of fun.
For shits and giggles I submitted my last t-shirt design to Threadless. It's up for scoring right now, so the more people who go and score my shirt the better!
If my design gets a high enough score and enough votes then it might get printed, and i'll get $2,500!
Hoping that giving my design the NG bump might give me a better chance of getting it through.
So score my design for me here!
If my design goes through then I'll have some kind of cool give away contest like Luis, maybe give away a few of the shirts and a painting.
Thanks for helping me out guys :)
