My life’s been changed a little bit, and I’m a bit more busy than usual this month. I’m starting to draw a bit different now, and tonight after being moved by Ori and Will of the Wisps, decided to do a piece on Ku. It was a real cute character to work on, and even got me a Reddit Silver badge. Slowly but surely, I’m getting there.
I saw this floating around on Instagram, and decided to follow the subgroup of people that did “Best 12” instead of #2018bestnine. I took my best piece out of each month and made the collage out of that. Most of these are in my gallery, some are missing as they’re not posted int he other sections of my site yet. But do enjoy; looking forward to how 2019’s will look at the end of the year.
This was certainly a surprise. If you remember my last post here, I had done a piece for Moon Studio’s #OriValentine giveaway. Turns out I actually won a prize! They sent it out in the mail for me, which arrived a short bit ago.
Until I got these, I had no idea merchandising for this game was really a thing. Stuff’s pretty cool; snazzy pin, little napkin packet and a spiffy journal. Mom actually likes this journal a whole lot, and likes the character art on the front!
I also got my name listed on their site, which is also pretty amazing. A big thank you to you guys, I’m glad you liked my doodle of Ori going giddy over coffee.
I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.
This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.
EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!
After playing Ori and the Blind Forest for awhile, realized how Lindsey Stirling’s music style was quite similar in certain styles of the game. This idea brewed of Lindsey Stirling doing her thing with Ori looking in awe. DashingIce was happy to oblige.
While this did get posted to my Twitter with both parties tagged, this never did get any recognition from them unfortunately. Still, it’s here and there for posterity.
Idea mine. Artist dashingice.
