Thanks to a tad bit of surplus with my new job, I decided to hunt down some fan merchandise on my favorite anime besides Gundam, Martian Battleship Nadesico! I had found this silk-screen poster about a week ago, and was just surprised that someone in the US had it (most of the Nadesico stuff I see is overseas). Ruri-chan arrived in one piece and now sits on my bedroom wall, and belongs quite nicely to the decor!
I also was excited about this a bit, as this was my first silk screen poster at all. So go me, I guess.
Sorry it’s not much to look at, but I’m finally here. Time to make this place home, I guess. But I have to vacuum first. You know, making sure the place is clean and all that.
Just pulled over in Greeneville for a moment while heading over to my new place, as my temperature gauge started to go up all of a sudden. I have no idea why; thankfully it started to settle back to normal once I got to driving over 55 mph on 11-E. I’ll need to check the coolant level upon touchdown, but I have a feeling something else is going on here.
Random nonsense I did on my tablet one evening for Anna, someone I had met back from Animazement 2008. We were both Touhou fans at the time and I decided to indulge her over AIM one evening with my rendition of how Suika typically acted. Don’t think I was too far off.
This was real great to work on, I got to put my tablet to use coloring this awesome piece by ThePockyMonster! The Toon Link eyes are spot on, and Zelda looks pretty cool herself.
Lines done by ThePockyMonster. Coloring by me.
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 can’t believe I’m the only one in the family that sees these things, and decides to take a picture of them. But here you go. When we visited a meeting to get Internet in rural places outside of Atlanta, I found this in the tree next to the entrance door. Dad scolded me for taking the photo, but I knew that was the 2nd highlight of my trip to catch that nonsense. Someone noticed!
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.
