::Robots Ain't Scary::

Finally.. done! I'm a little bit late but hey, at least I got outside of my usual comfort zone. There are couple things that could be improved, but overall I'm quite happy with it.
Happy New Year guys :)!!

Just a bunch of funky sketches I've been drawing in my little pretty sketchbook (which is extremly annoying to scan). Couple of composition studies based on the awesome Framed Ink book (one copy is in LCA library, yay!) and some random fineliner dudes. Smiley because I've been watching way too much Sycra (and Meatbag) livestreams. It's bad for your mental health ;)

Interesting Stuff||007

  • Lately I've been listening to a tons of podscasts and youtubers and Your Dreams My Nightmare is my latest discovery (thanks to Matt Forsythe for posting link on his tumblr).
  • Creative Trek is another cool channel with bunch of amazing artists interviewed.
  • Also, did I mentioned Anthony Jones YT channel yet? Talks are a bit all over the place, recorded straight from livestreams (which I can't watch due to the completly different time zone xD).

I still mess a lot with pencils and fineliners but don't bother with scanning. Maybe I should get back into it? Also, a little review of Tombow pencils is coming up soon.

So, imagine Bruce growing up in Japan, watching anime, reading manga and worshipping Hello Kitty? Yeah, maybe it doesn't make sense, but it's set in Japan and he is on the little trip around Akihabara, waiting for Robin to show up.
Another entry in Brainstorm group.

Meet Yeti - he lives far far away, in a cosy cave. Twice a year he comes down from the mountain top to share the joy with humans and celebrate theirs holidays. He loves candy! And Halloween is the best time to get some free candy.

Interesting Stuff||006

Another batch of things that are interesting and cool :) .

You Can Make Games - Indies talk about game industry. It's a short, 8 minute long video, but fun to watch.
7 tips for the 21 year old me - a short journal entry by Bobby Chiu with some neat advice

How I made out of the Looser Trap - another really good and worth reading journal entry, this time written by Olga Drebas
Mery Project is a free character rig made by two Spanish artists. I'm having tons of fun playing with her, making silly poses.
Hotel Transylvania Zombie Rig - perfect for upcoming Halloween, a free Zombie rig. If you watched Sony Pictures Hotel Transylvania you'll recognize a character. So cool that you can play with the actual character rig that such a big studio uses. Sweet.

Being silly again, just a simple, relaxing sketch so I don't fry my brain with dissertation and side work.

::ROOZ::

I got this little vinyl beauty ages ago from my husband and couple weeks ago I finally painted it.



It's a bit sloppy, haven't touch acrilics in ages, not to mention the fact, that it was my first time painting a 3D object. Challenging but fun :)


I went for a crazy school kid fox theme with a dual personality (which explains why he is smiling and being extremly angry at the same time ;) ). I still haven't got a name for him, just a 'BonBon Foxy' nickname (as he also wears a ribbon from BonBon sweets).

Interesting Stuff||005

 I had this list in a draft for ages, but still worth uploading I guess ;)
  • A really good advice on how to get to the animation industry by Dankrall.
  • Brainstorm group on Facebook with weekly concept art challenges and really cool themes. I haven't participated in any of them yet, shold fix this mistake soon.
  • 4 Keys to Staying Creative short article on creativity by Bobby Chiu.
  • Tokkun Academy - Art School TV Channel - fundraising campain started a bit time ago on Indiegogo. I find the idea of art TV channel really weird, but since places like KiwiJuice and Gumroad been so succesful with selling tutorials, the online art channel might be not that bad afterall. Maybe it would depend on type of ads they decide to air in between classes and tutorials ;)
  • Inside Velocity 2X: Animation System - since Velocity 2X is available for free with Playstation Plus offer for September, this particular bulletpoint is timed perfectly :). I've attended a Futurlad talk during last year's BAF and were already familiar with crazy amount of work they've put into animating Kai.

Few months ago I've got involved in an animation project for the local council, which, unfortunately, had to be put on hold. Still, I wanted to share at least few things I've done for it, like character designs.

Back to my alien creatures, time for a full body concepts. After I'm done with monk and warrior guys, there is their fantasy town to design. I'm starting to wonder if it should be made into a simple Unity game level?
