"Those iron bubbles only reflected my rusted dreams."

Trying to find my own digital style, I'm very open so ask me anything. :dummy:
Things I am actively drawing: Video game fan-art (mostly retro stuff), random chibi thingies and random random stuff...oh yeah...

Talk with me in any of these languages!

So not that long ago I wrote that journal about how I didn't feel like drawing at all. I only did some gaming here and there and besides finishing Lego City Undercover for the Wii U I was just playing games to chill out, VVVVVV, Knytt Underground. Chill kinda stuff you know. Laid back style. Atmospheric overloads.
I also had so many movies I still wanted to watch but I haven't had a real movie phase in a really long time and don't even get me started on art, I've been neglecting that for months.

Then it happened...everything hit me at once...

All of a sudden since about a month now I've been catching up on movies faster than I can write them down, so many awesome movies I've wanted to see for so long already such as 'How to train your dragon', we even went to the cinema to watch the second one and the last time I went to the movies NOT for a Hobbit film was about 10 years ago! I saw Kick ass, incredible movie! The 2nd one was good too, Jim Carrey and all but I still prefer the 1st one. I watched ALL the Planet of the Apes movies again except for the Burton remake and the newest one currently in the cinema.
I watched Brave, Ratatouille, Gravity (One of the best movies EVER made!!), Shaun of the Dead, the pile of sh*t that was 'Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy, Only lovers left alive, 2 of the Bourne movies and tons and tons more and the list is still very long. I'm looking most forward to 'Four Seasons' one of Alan Alda's finest works.

I've also picked up some more heavier video games again. I finally continued Borderlands 2, my gunzerker had enough time to reload, surprisingly violent for such a crazy yet super relax game by the way. Skyrim has been turning again, my Dunmer starting getting itchy! Windwaker HD, trying to 100% Lego City Undercover, level building in VVVVVV, Mario Kart 8 online madness, Bionic Commando and Trip World for the Gameboy, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Super Castlevania 4 thanks to the lovely VanoVaemone and again, many many more.

Even the need for digital art came back, all of this stuff at the same time yo! I did the Pokémon Blue artwork in like 2 or 3 days, an idea that had been rotting away on my to-do list for years, now I'm working on a really cool piece that I was super SUPER excited for, even sketched it out neatly which I don't do nearly enough anymore and I'm already flat colouring this piece too!
I hope to keep this art momentum going so that I can work on the 3 pieces I still owe some contest winners from like 2 years ago. *dies of shame*
But so far even these have been advancing nicely!

The 'Star Tropics' artwork for JNRedmon is closest at this point where I started on the flat colouring. Besides the fact that I'm taking so damn long by...well doing nothing this piece required a few things I was still really unfamiliar with when it comes to digital art but I'm really happy with the way it looks so far.

The 'King Boo and Minions' speed paint for genminusone WAS coming along pretty nicely too but since I'm so damn slow and haven't felt like art in a really long time than ignored these prices for a while after that still I actually became so much better that I deleted the file because I just couldn't look at it anymore. Once I have the new idea in my head, with the skills I have acquired in the mean time this piece shouldn't take too long anymore either. I'm actually looking forward to it I just have to get the compostion right again in my head.

The 'Link's Awakening' toon artwork for BitBallet is not that far off anymore either. I have the sketch as good as done and am REALLY happy with this idea so I'm all fidgety just thinking about it! I did some quick colouring and am about to start the line art for this one.

Haha! I'm such a horrible person. I can't believe it's been so long since I owe these people, of course all of them are super nice and WAY too patient which I really appreciate, heck I'm too patient for my own good too, half of them don't even remember it anymore that I owe them these things. Excuse me while I go live under a rock.

Well at last my drive is fully back now so I'll ride it for as long as it lasts. Besides that one personal artwork of mine these 3 are on the top of my list!
