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.
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.
For Christmas Eve we had alfredo. Spiffy enough, though I helped with it this time around. Bean sprouts included on the side, because it obviously has to be healthy.
The plate and fork are my specific doing, these were “zen” utensils I bought at Pier 1 earlier that year to try to adapt to feng shuei, in an attempt to be “calm”. It was tricky eating the alfredo with a wooden bamboo fork, but it was interesting to say the least.
While I was waiting for Dad to take care of paperwork, I realized that this was a good setup to pose WALL-E as if he was staring out of a starship bridge into the horizon. Especially with the GPS on the windshield like some viewscreen. The lighting couldn’t have been any better.
This is one of the few photos I took of my WALL-E figure when on my trip to Florida. This particular time, while I was going to grab a sky photo, I saw that his reflection was clear on the sunglasses, even with the sky behind him through the window. That’s an opportunity I didn’t pass up.
Well, considering you asked so nicely and even knelt down…
When I got dragged along to Home Depot the other day, I happened across this suave and smug looking toad. I’m not too big of a fan with garden statues, but I’ll say this one took the cake! Very charismatic if anything.
