color

A long time ago i did some tutorials on comic making and inking, and i did always say i was going to make a coloring one, it just took sometime. It's pretty basic, but it's important.


Color theory. Mark Wieczorek.
More scientific reading, but interesting.

GESTURE

technique

I see a lot of art, I'd like to think I go out of my way to absorb as much as possible. When I see certain older styles replicated today, especially more classical styles of art, It bores me. I mean yes, it's all very nice, well put together, but innovative. NO. I feel like certain styles have role models and it's more about the technique rather than expression.

One can argue, there is the flip side that you have to understand it to grow as an artist, so it can be used as a tool for expression. What is it the master or slave? I'm not sure.

I could see how someone could come up to me and say well, you are part of a style, lines are very pertinent to what I do, but if we are dividing styles by lines then everything is essentially a line! Then there is only one category.

What came first the chicken or the egg? The impact the consumer has on the artist mind, or the visuals impact on the consumer? The need to produce something to appeal to a greater audience, rather than to just create.

Sometimes I find myself getting angry with the world. I don't really care for all the bullshit that it bogs down my mind with.

There's an old saying, opinions are like assholes, everyone's got one.

PUNEY PUNEY!!!!























mice



tink






pepper





i got some mice awhile back, I use to have gerbils, rats, and hamsters as a kid and awhile back I thought hey why not. I really like the mice, I never had them so it's a new experience. Overall, mice are a fun pet. They are really fun crazy little pets, they have a lot of energy and really distinct personalities.



They are actually pretty crazy, because they fight for dominace sometimes. Pepper is the more dominate one, she will chase tink and literally hump tink to show her domiance. I found out it works that way for both genders with mice. I guess, that's how mice work things out.

fuck cooperate america

You know what i have found out about artists, that they are EVERYWHERE. There is so much talent in the world it's just nuts. If I had a dime for every time I've heard a someone say they were an artist, I'd be fucking rich. Which is kinda funny, because the act of art making is so centralized in your own mind. So much so that you forget that all these other things exist, and at the same feel overwhelmed by all of the external input.

It's either that or you notice it more because you are one, You ever notice how you are more keen to noticing things if you are that or have it. Like for example, you buy a car and before you never particularly notice it, but then you buy it and BAM you see 10 a day.

Interdimensional travelers

I tried to keep some of her attributes the same, since i liked them as kid.


Ruby is the head Priestess of the Akka tribe, which are a race of serpent people. The Akka worship the Jemite. This Jemite is said to have special powers, and is rumored to be the first piece of matter created in the universe. In the wrong hands the Jemite has the power to destroy the universe. King Lor desired to ultimate power and sought to use the jemite powers to fuel his empire. When King Lor stole the crystal from the shrine, the Jemite shattered and the pieces were scattered across the universe. King Lor now holds the largest pieces of the jem and is seeking to complete the Jemite once again to become even more powerful and rule the universe. Ruby possesses a piece of the Jemite and is the leader of a undergroud resistance against King Lor's army of drones and fights to return the Jemite to the shrine.





crystal is a angsty teenager from earth, who teleported to Nerrok by the power
of the crystal, she holds a shard of the heart of the jemite and is the newest member of
the Jemite Warriors. She plays a critical role in the resistance.
