Feature!~alhilton is a wonderful author who has built a fantastic and emotionally engaging world of fawn-like creatures called "Shelts." It is an illustrated, full-cast audio book series that is available for free on her website or on iTunes! Click here for Cowry Catchers!! NSFW.. Enjoy!
Phew! Tomorrow is my last day of class, woo hoo! (But that means critique is tomorrow, ahh! D: ) I've been in Graphic Design 1 this block, and its been tough. As a painter, it was really difficult getting used to Illustrator and doing everything in such a simple way. I may upload two or so of my projects, but for the most part they are not really worth showing in a gallery like this, haha xD
Anyway, that is where I have been! Busy busy busy.
Oh, and on top of class, I've been working off and on with one of my friends who commissioned me to do an oil portrait of her as a Christmas gift to her mom, so I will be uploading pictures of that tonight or tomorrow, depending on when my other friend can give me the photos of it (she has a better camera than me xD).
I finally feel like I'm starting to make it in the art world. I know I still have a loooong way to go before I'm completely satisfied with my work, but I'm getting to the point where people think I am worth commissioning! I recently got a huge influx of commissions from real-life and online people, which is extremely exciting for me.
However, this means I will be very busy this Christmas break! xD
As soon as I get home tomorrow, I have to go buy 3 large-ish canvases for a tryptic I am doing for my cousin and her husband (so fun!), and I need to sketch out some thumbnails for a few short story covers I am doing (omg!). I've got to finalize a promo poster for an indie fantasy comic book I am an artist for (squee!), and get the reference photos for a portrait I've been commissioned to do of my Great Uncle (oh boy!). Inbetween these projects I will be finishing the image for *Black-Wing24
for buying me my subscription, and working on a series of paintings I started before all these commissions appeared xD.
I love being an artist!
