And my internship is already over. It went by way too fast. The team at Picture Plane was great to work with and I feel like I left there with more knowledge and skills than when I began. It was great to work on so many different projects for so many different clients. And while I know that not everything I worked on will still have my art when it's printed, I'm still going to be proud to know that I 'might' have helped with it.
Next step? No idea. I've got some props and a portrait commission to finish up. Then, I'll start sending out my portfolio again and see what I can pick up!
Got my entry in for the Game Artisan Comic Con challenge with just 9 minutes before the cut off time.
Day was spend organizing layers and cleaning up certain areas, ie plasma. And her face. Took about 6 different iterations until I was happy.
Playing around with composition and value. Swapped out the beams for mech-tentacles. Alita is always fighting something bigger than her, plus adds more to the story than her just jumping around some beams, fighting an unseen opponent.
I've always been a fan of simple composition, so I'm not sure I want all the extra 'stuff' going on like in B.
I'm trying to do a pastel portrait every weekend. Today was Carl.
Sennelier pastels on Mi-Teintes paper.
I've entered this year.... after many years of watching and waiting. Plus, I'm allowed to have a personal project at my new internship and this fits the bill. I even got to work on it at work today!
Here's some of what I've done. Concepts and comp WIP mostly.
My forum thread: Game Artisans
As often happens with freelance work, a project went under. The owner is nice enough however to let me use the work I did on my site.
Bloody Dame was going to be a mystery type game set in the time of gangsters. The storyline was going to revolve around the death of the Dame.
I did a bunch of research on the time period. Clothes, makeup, fashion. It was a fun experience and I hope to get to do something like this again.
Made my way down to New Orleans this past weekend to compete in the Wizard World costume contest. It was an interesting experience, especially with HOC filming at the same event.
No prizes were to be had for the Black Waltz III, but that's okay. I plan on going back and sculpting the hands and casting them out of Dragonskin. The staff will be redone as well.
Had a spurt of creativity this morning and decided to add another portrait to my collection of Doctor Who characters. The War Doctor, via pastels.
Still have most of my other Doctor Who portraits up for sale on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Moonwildflower
