Skin Tone Study
Working on this between commissions as a skin/tone study. I've been trying to soften my shading and make it more subtle when it comes to skin as I work on my comic. I want that thing to look good. :) 

And what better way to do a skin study? 
Reference used, about two and a half hours. The reference picture was in my reference folder; if i find it online again, I'll throw the link up!

Sereana Amai, Queen of Nightmares
It's been a while, amiright?

Sorry, life's been kinda kicking my ass and got myself into a block. BUT! I think I'm busting out of it now as I finished something for myself.

This is Sereana Amai, Queen of Nightmares. Like her two cousins, Inada and Azrael, she was one of the many who suddenly manifested powers (and a jewel in her forehead) when the world was on the verge of breaking.

Like her cousins, she seeminly has a very long life, but her powers differ from the elements. She controls the dead and anything of the like. However, her nightmares are controlled by her 'shadow', an odd doppleganer (under her) who had given her nightmares endlessly until she learned to control it.

Her shadow can conjure up some of the most intense and horrifying visions and manifest them into reality, and she is uncontrollable aside from Sereana herself pulling the reins. It obeys her because it is her, but misery to her enemies who fall under the sight of her nightmares.

The Silmarillion - Forging of the Silmarils by oGuttermoutho
The Silmarillion - Forging of the Silmarils
This was another Tolkien commission I did for my friend Joe to accompany his Fangolin and Morgoth picture!

This time, he wanted me to paint Fëanor forging the Silmaril's.  I had to reference a ton (and I mean a TON) of stuff to even do this. And ask Joe a million questions, as he's a Tolkien expert, but I finally finished it!
After... probably 3-4 months of working on it off and on (I'd say a few weeks total) I think I finally finished it. :)

Fëanor is seen here giving his essence along with the light of the two trees in the background (Telperion's silver and Laurelin's gold, otherwise known as the Trees of Valinor) into the three gems and thus creating the artifact worth most in the Tolkien world.

It was supposed to be simpler, but I wanted to make this a little more extravagant for Joe as he's been a good friend of mine for a long time.

So! Here you have it. :)

Lemme see here...

I'm a graduate of Sheridan College and have my Bachelor in Applied Animation. I do a lot of freelance work, work for specific clients and studios. I'm doing a lot of stuff with bands, local and out of town (ie, anywhere else) and that's shaping up real well! I do portraits, landscapes, tattoo art, character art.. sheesh, almost anything I can get my hands on! But I don't want to call myself an artist yet; I feel the need for myself to earn that title.

I currently live in Kingston, Ontario, and aim to make my mark here. And this town is treating me well! I'm saving up to either get a house, or a studio space to begin the works of a studio.

I pretty much explore the visual and musical aspect of art, having been in bands and involved in the music scene here in Southern Ontario. I wanna use all my experiences, throw them all together and perhaps come out with something cool.

Who knows?

Current Residence: Kingston, Ontario, Canada
Favourite genre of music: I usually listen to punk and metal, but anything's good, honestly.
Favourite photographer: Currently? none. But I do admire a bunch of people on here.
Favourite style of art: Comic book, classical, realistic, graffiti...
Operating System: Windows Vista
MP3 player of choice: the ol' iTunes and my diePod
Shell of choice: Uh. Snail shells are cool.
Wallpaper of choice: I have no clue. As long as it's fucking cool.
Skin of choice: <-- what?
Favourite cartoon character: Homer Simpson. Who else?
Personal Quote: Everytime I see a butterfly, I wonder if it's you.

It's 'cause I'm stuck in a rut. :P I haven't produced anything I really like. And the commissions I've been doing aren't... ah.. exciting enough :P

This may be a bit odd and random, but I totally had a dream with you in it last night. I can't pinpoint exactly what all happened now, because memory is fading and such, but what I do remember was veeery iiinteresting.
Here's hoping that your part time jobs aren't weighing you down too much. I miss talking to you, buuuddy! I hope you are well. :D
Talk to you soon.

I did ! I took up two part time jobs and working at the restaurant for the next month and a half! Like a lot of artist's, I ran out of money :( So I've been working, commissioning, and pretty much killing myself, with brief interludes on the internet when I go sit down and relax at the coffee shop :)

The tattoo was a cat's eye, btw :) I will need to take a picture of it for you!
V7Stick Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Professional Photographer
Yeah, I know how it is. :)
Well, make sure you take time for yourself to actually relax. Don't stress too much.
Awww. I can't wait to see it. ^_^

Happy Birthday, by the way! You'll prolly see the same thing on FB. :)
