I may have not played Mass Effect, but I have a pretty good idea on what it’s about. And honestly, I love the storyline. But you know what’s even more better? Tales of Symphonia + Mass Effect.
With me getting into the swing of hopefully doing graphic arts or such this year at ETSU, I’ve upped doing art a whole lot more, in hopes to get more practice. As such, I decided to do an ambitious project; not only create a crossover fanart piece, but freehand it completely instead of draw on paper then transfer.
I’m using Corel PhotoPaint for the time being, as that’s what I’ve always used for all my digital art since 2007. But you get a good view of my layout for this project. Best of luck for me getting somewhere with this.
I’m still fooling around with the Wacom tablet. I came to the point to try this; I guess I wanted to try making some sort of comics after seeing some fan ones on deviantART float around. It took me ages to come up with this; I think I need a new computer that doesn’t lag when I draw.
This was a fanart I churned out in the last week of December, hoping to give some sort of visual to go along with the Solaria Novus. I head teamed up with a bunch of people off of Youtube, and that’s what actually got me started to go down the path there to do things. Who knows? I can’t wait to see the final project done!
Either rate we have the main characters of the audio play; Ruri from the new Nadesico movie, Lloyd Nebulon from Lloyd in Space, Fillmore from his show’s sake. In the back is the old Normandy from the first Mass Effect game, given the Airport Mania treatment with the face for added effect.
One of these days I may color this. But for the time being, it’ll remain in its infamy the way it is; a sketch.
Loving my new Bamboo tablet so far, but I really need to get ahold of actually how to draw with one. While incomplete, this was my first creation; sue me for being a fan of Airport Mania. Those faces and blabbing the planes do are just straight-down adorable.
A little while back, someone I knew on deviantART was having hardware problems. They were getting quite behind on requests and even their personal work, and it was coming to a complete standstill. All because a mouse on their PC wasn’t working.
Since my parents had come back from their store, they had a ton of computer stuff sitting around, including obsolete desktops. I took a spare PS/2 mouse lying around at the time, mailing it across the country to them. Long story short, they were extremely grateful and were able to resume work once again.
In return, they drew Princess Kida, together with Raine Sage and Twilight Princess Zelda. The joke is that Kida lost some sort of bet, and such she has to take on a “kawaii” persona, outfit included. They drummed up the last part but I really enjoyed it.
This is the first time I got thank-you art for anything I had done online, so it was quite thrilling to know I was able to help someone out! You can check out the artist here.
This was a great art trade I did with a guy called Zipposhade. I drew one of my monster characters, and in return he drew me Jennifer . It has a strange almost caricature to it, which makes it even more interesting to look at. Thanks a bunch, buddy.
This was a charcoal study we did in class today; the point of it was to get used to the drawing properties of charcoal and how to use them on mediums. The teacher took a bunch of random wood blocks, dumping them onto a table and having us draw still life. It was actually real fun, and it was great to take my mind off stuff like other classes I was going through at the time.
I’ll have to figure out how to scan this. While it does fit on a flatbed to a degree, the charcoal is quite smudgy and leaves a mess. Maybe a high definition photo sometime?
Got this done recently; this was my class assignment for drawing a portrait into an 18″ x 24″ full piece of an art piece in my Art History book (the name escapes me, but I’ll update it as soon as I remember). I got a B on it as I could’ve added more shading depth, but my teacher was impressed that I duplicated it more or less. I was surprised as well.
I’ll get a better picture of this down the line sometime.
This only came about because I was left with this Telus paper to doodle with. As I was getting into the Zelda fandom, I really did like the idea of Zelda going around with Link on his adventures. So this idea of him seeing his villainous bunny, makes him wonder if there’s a powerup waiting for him after defeating it.
