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:
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.
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!
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:
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.
