Oh man, this was fun. My roommate entered a one-week game jam and ended up making a StarFox-inspired dinosaur dogfighting game. I convinced him to call it “Raptor Ace” and made him a bunch of silly dinosaur art for it. Would have done more, but that’s about when my hard drive fried.
You can download Raptor Ace here.
hey Myles what are you doing oh not much just watching Samurai Cop.
Little doodle. Getting back into it. Photoshop may not work very well with the Surface Pro, but I’ve been very pleased to find that Manga Studio 5 is a perfect match.
The hard drive on my tablet laptop burned out two weeks ago, which is a real shame because (on top of losing all my stuff) they don’t really make convertible laptops for artists anymore. I’ve replaced it with a Surface Pro.
It’s an awesome all-around piece of technology, but I was initially disappointed with its performance art-wise - my old Touchsmart was incredibly responsive and accurate, while the Surface pen feels pretty floaty and has some lag with brush strokes in Photoshop. (It apparently has something to do with the Surface having a “capacitive” touchscreen rather than a “resistive” one.) Nevertheless, after an afternoon of tinkering with settings and running calibrations, I managed to pull off some quick, clumsy painting. I made a fat bug.
Whew. This turned into something much more involved than I expected.
Originally it was going to be made of brass, but it came out looking more like wood, and I thought that was more interesting anyway.
Another little practice painting.
I’ve been reading up on the Eberron setting lately and really loving it. Given my abiding monomania for robots and robot-like things, it was only a matter of time before I drew a Warforged.
Another quick painting. Let’s make a habit.
Quick sketch to remind myself I can do this. It’s been a busy couple of weeks.
Venusaur, everyone’s favorite bloated, sluggish, photosynthetic bear-frog.
This is still happening, in case there was any doubt.
