How Many More

Ok, finally! I know this Chronicle took me a while to produce, and I apologize for that! I was pretty busy for the first big chunk of the summer, so I wasn't able to write (plus my computer kept over heating). Now that I finally got some spare time, I sat down and finished the Chronicle. It's not the best one, but it will move you along in the plot. Things are certainly getting serious, so I hope you'll enjoy it, and please feel free to let me know your thoughts in the comments. I only got to read through this one a few times, so there are probably some grammar mistakes. Still, I hope that won't detract from the story.

Alpha Showdown

After a few days of intensive painting (it's been a LONG time since I've just sat for such longer stretches and done digital art) I have finally finished my art piece that started out as a sketch that I showed you guys a while back. I've done this style of painting before (in a painting called "There is no Love without Pain). It focuses a lot on detail but has fairly subdued, almost cold colors. That makes it a lot simpler for me. Anyway, click the read more to see the whole painting.

Laptop troubles... BOO!

Ugh, as usual sometimes real life gets in the way of fan stuff! Haha, in this case it is the fact that my laptop seems to have a broken fan, and that means it gets really hot and stops working! Now, it doesn't explode (although the above gif is a pretty accurate display of how I have to act towards it when it starts overheating). It just makes it to where I have to only use it for about thirty minutes at a time. That is one reason why it has taken me so long to finish my new Dsplash Chronicle. And, it also really hinders my ability to digital paint. I am planning on taking my laptop to a repair place tomorrow, and I have no idea when they'll get it back to me. Hopefully it won't be too long, but while it is there I obviously won't be posting any new analyses, art, or stories. I will still be able to reply to comments you leave here (through email), though I won't be able to see any images you might put into those comments. I do apologize for the delay, and I really hope the problem can be fixed quickly.

Alpha Showdown (line art)

I have finished making the line art of my sketch that I showed you guys in the last blog post! I'm pretty happy with how it looks in the digital format. Please click the "read more" to see the entire painting along with close shots.

Alpha Showdown (sketch)

So, I have a potential digital painting in the works, and this is how it is starting! I have done a rough pencil sketch of what I want the final image to look like. It turned out well, so before long you may be seeing this same image in a slightly revamped digital line art and then (hopefully) a full color painting! The reason I did a sketch first is because I wanted to experiment with a new subject matter that makes a big appearance in this image. What is that new subject matter?
