Green Book Update and Features!

Alright guys and gals, first off in the transposing process I’m up to chapter 9 of 15 transposed from the 300+ written pages to online format. That’s a lot of typing! I’m trying to take it slow to give my forearms adequate time to relax (the last thing I want is a burn out). I see a lot of things that are going to need to be adjusted and swapped around but I’m making a quick note and keeping on. The goal is to have everything transposed and then I will start fiddling with the book.

Art and jewelry commissions are still open! I take commissions for ear cuff sets (which you can see in the December section of this picture) and I am also offering special discounts for commissions throughout this year! Want to find out about the current rates, discounts, and get a special off on a Valentine’s Day gift for your friend or special someone? Check out my 2015 Themed Discounts journal!

Now, I’d like to highlight some of my awesome supporters:

"Dothan March Coloured Test 1" by SirRinge
“Dothan March Coloured Test 1” by SirRinge

I can’t remember what exactly caught me on to SirRinge but I remember being fascinated with his understanding for body armor – how if fit together, deviations of combinations, the variance in purpose and use between the different warriors he depicted. SirRinge has his own world simmering into being and shows parts of the planning in a journal and in the collections of his illustrations. Keep an eye on him.

I recently met Max (aka Syndromax) and upon discovering his compositions I was extremely enthralled with the balance in his work. I’ll put his music on for soothing, to write, or to draw to. No matter what it is I start moving unconsciously – tapping my feet, bobbing my head, dancing in my head while I lay out a new piece. The best thing I can tell you about Max’s work is simply this: You definitely want to come here for well balanced and electronic scores.

"Virgo Illustration" by Karin and Murielle Regnass
“Virgo Illustration” by Karin and Murielle Regenass

I’m more familiar with Karin personally but the Regenass sisters work together in a wonderful combination of skill to bring you illustrations that draw you into a story you know just just beneath the surface. The journey has been rough but their propensity for pushing limitations and metaphorical brick walls will definitely inspire you to keep moving forward. Each time I see their art or any of their developing work I become excited half for a piece I know is going to be great, and half to continue working on my own concepts. You can find them both on Facebook, on deviantArt (Marchands-De-Reves) – or click the image to be taken to their main website and portfolio!

Chest Capture by Alentrish

Finally for today’s post I’d like to introduce Vicky (aka Alentrish). A little after I fell in love with Assassin’s Creed (sometime after I bought the first game) Alentrish and I found each other on dA. Picking through her gallery I found a mutual geek love for the Creed, skulls, and feathers. The metal chest picture above is one she found and decorated herself. Alas, this is not for sale. Alentrish has an affinity for a great many craft works including metal working, painting, feather wrapping and painting, accent decor, and (most recently) wire wrapping. I highly recommend you check out her work for trimmed artistic flare. You’re sure to find inspiration.

That’s it for this week! I will do more of these features periodically. Keep your eye out for new ones! Missed an old one? See more feature posts:

[Technical Difficulties]

My key weekly advice for you is to take time to walk your body. I found the inspirational editing seed for Green Book 2 (which is already written) walking through a park on a gentle wind in a clearing.

Keep exploring~

First Day at Metrocon 2014!

Good morning everyone! Here’s an update on my first day of Metrocon this year! It’s my second year selling arts and crafts at this convention and Friday I featured masquerade masks! Some masks were pre made, custom designs were available, and several people purchased blanks to design their own patterns! I will say the most fun I had making the masks were custom fitting the masks to stay on glasses and the custom orders (I was so busy I forgot to take pictures of the custom masks. Maybe I’ll recreate some of them.)

If you’re in the area it’s free to visit the convention center and walk down the artist alley where I am set up. I’d love to meet you in person!

New Things!

My order for Shilin’s Carciphona book 4 arrived today! I’m excited to see what happens next. The packaging is so pretty, I don’t want to take the book or card out yet.

Carciphona Vol. 4 by Shilin Huang

I’ve purchased and read the first three volumes and I like the flow of the stories and art. Shilin has developed a great sense for presentation. I’ve always admired her perseverance and style. It has been a joy to watch her art develop over the years and she inspires me to keep going – to keep trying. That what I want is possible. So here I go, cheer me on!

Anklet and Earrings made by Me

These are two of my favorite pieces of jewelry. I made both of them and the colors just draw me to them. There are many more new pieces that are crafted and ready for photographing. Look forward to the postings of them soon! Until then you can view my artisan pieces for sale on one of three places: Etsy, Storenvy, and eBay. I’m testing out the market areas as I am not sure which I prefer more. So far the most successful for garnering attention and purchases has been eBay. What do you think? Any advice?

Until next week, happy exploring!

Bling Yourself Out!

One day recently I sat down and made twenty pairs of earrings.

Where can you purchase these and other pieces like them? On my eBay shop of course! Prices vary between items. Some listings have a set price others are set up in auction. I am toying with the idea of an Etsy shop however I feel most comfortable selling on eBay at the moment. I am always adding new items, especially after a group of sales on the site. Most of this week I have been evening out my accounts and also attending the Tampa Charity Horse Show here! I love the horses and the energy of this place. Hopefully I can generate some positive energy to continue to be a part of it. Wish me luck!

Until next week, happy exploring~

Items for Sale

Hey guys and gals!

I planned to post about underwater rivers today more in the format of a Ratified Research post but I want to conduct more research on the topic before I make it available for you guys.

Until then, I want to bring your attention to items I have for sale on eBay, like these unicorn gateway earrings that have a bid on them!

Unicorn Gateway Earrings

Perhaps you’re looking for accent pieces for St. Patrick’s Day coming up later this month? Check these out!

St. Patrick’s Day themed set
***Click on the images to be taken to the sale pages where the items are available for purchase.

Or perhaps you want something green that is not specifically for St. Patrick’s Day? I have a number of other sets available. If you do not want jewelry perhaps you’d be interested in the gently read manga books such as Full Metal Alchemist or Crescent Moon. Bid/buy them before they’re gone! Also up for your consideration is this Aludin statue from Elder Scrolls V Skyrim.

Either way I would like to thank you for checking in and spreading the word about me. I will be working on some digital art this weekend. I may post a few works in progress during next week.

Until then what have you been up to? Have you had any adventures recently? Tell me about it on my Facebook page! I would love to hear from you. Happy travels!

My Current Web Presence

Hey guys and gals!

Thanks for checking in and keeping up – and exploring! I highly encourage exploring. Thing is I have so much going on I’m having to relearn how to balance the sites I maintain and prioritize how much I maintain on a particular site.

This will be made slightly easier by that for the first time in a long time I will not have to wake up Sunday to prepare myself to work in a significantly hostile environment. While things will be scary for a while I believe I will be able to handle the challenges that come with my new position and keep moving forward. As it is this post comes in a day later than expected and it is mostly a run down of the sites have up right now (in the order of currently most maintained from top to bottom):

Kiri’s Amaranthine Rain 
Wordpress blog with links to most of my other accounts, including my old blog site. Here I try to have weekly updates on what I’ve been up to, my creative process, and short blurbs/articles on things that interest me – and subsequently influence my creative process. Major updates are also posted here.

Kiri Ramdeo on eBay 
My ebay account where I sell most of my original and unique artisan earrings – go check out my shop! I also sell used items here such as book series, horse blankets, and other assorted items.

Kiri’s Store 
Storenvy shop where the most of my items are available for sale. I’m in the process of having some poster sized prints completed and mailed in. There are a mix of items available from art prints, rear view mirror decorations, and earrings. There are a few items listed that are in development and will be available soon~

Kiri Ramdeo on Facebook 
Facebook page with artist information. I post updates when blogs are available and there are major updates and information available. If you like the page you’ll be able to qualify for exclusive discounts from my storenvy shop!

Kiriramdeo.com 
Homepage that I’ve just set up! The site is still under construction but be sure to check back for updates! Eventually the main spot to contact me regarding commissions will be this site. Until then feel free to contact me here on dA or via email when commissions are open!

Amaranthine Rain 
Tumblr that is mostly automatically updated whenever there is a new blog post.

@KiriRamdeo
Twitter which automatically updates every time there is a new blog post.

freespiritkrr 
Howrse account. I play occasionally and for fun. Often I go through phases when I sell a ton of horses in the auction. Feel free to add me as a friend!

 

Until next week, happy exploring!
