And as much as I love Destinty, this is oddly the first piece of fanart for it that I've ever completed.
It occurred to me that I hadn't posted anything on my blog for a long time, so I thought I'd log in and post some of the artwork I'd done lately. I was a little surprised when I signed in and saw a huge list of posts of my drawings already up on my other blog that I hadn't posted... Then remembered I had IFTTT set up to post all my Instagram photos to my blog automatically. Would work perfectly if not for the fact that all of the pics are too big and get cut in half :/
Anyway enough rambling, on with the posting!
I recently decided to (finally) set up a Facebook page for my arts, seeing as that was the only remaining frontier upon which I had yet to spew my artistic endeavours. So you can go look at that if you want.
Otherwise I don't have much to say. Not made a whole lot of art lately, I've got one freelance project going on and around that I'm trying to brush up my various software skills (or in some cases relearn them).
Although I did do this sketch of Ser Robert Strong, to coincide with the end of the latest series of Game of Thrones. So there's that.
I clean forgot about this place. I've been very busy since the last update. Had a baby (well that was more my partner's doing but still). Been working at Oysterworld. Been fiddling heavily with photography (more on that later). There's so much more I could say, but I'll leave you with this:
This year, Chicken Coop Fractions was nominated for a BAFTA Games & Interactive Games Experience commendation. Which is nice! Last friday we went down to the Doctor Who experience thingammybob in Cardiff Bay for a nominee's party. That was nice too!
A DeviantART summary of last year, just like the 2011 one!
A couple of things to mention here:
Yes, a lot of things I did last year were Design-a-Character challenges;
I also had ZERO deviations submitted to DeviantART in July and December (busy months?) so I used an Instagram photo of a batman drawing I did that month, and a screen grab of the Rocket Rooster game I did the artwork for shortly after starting at eChalk (you can see the game here but can only play a preview version without subscribing)
I would link to the original deviation that had the template for this meme, but it seems to have been taken down. i just had to rummage in my old PSDs to fine the 2011 one XD
One the whole, I think I did a little better than 2012, art wise. But just a little.
I started working at eChalk in November last year, and recently we've been making these 3D paper illusions that appear to turn their head and follow you as you move. So, just in time for St. David's day, we've made the template for Dewi the Dragon available to download on the website. There's a full colour version, and a colour-free one that kids can download and colour in before assembling.
So once you've watched the video to see how it works, don't forget to print off and try one for yourself!
I know, I know, Movember is over. I’ve been too busy for bloggish things, alright?!
In any case I didn’t do the Movember moustache growing thing this year - mainly because my moustache is so poor - but I did partake in Gallery of Mo once more.
That’s my profile pic there. And though it’s now December, I’m still catching up on requests. It’s been a hell of a month!
