YEAH. I'M STILL HERE, DA. Please hold your applause.

It's ONLY been...just over 3 years since I last did a journal thingy. Bit of a jump from posting more or less yearly as I had up to now. ANYWAY. I've been drawing a lot of stuff and not really making much of an effort to keep my DeviantART updated with much of it. The biggest reason for that is I've been using Tumblr more. If you are so inclined, you may find said Tumblr at this location. 

I'm thinking about overhauling my DA, though. I'll separate all the stuff I have into more organized folders and relegate the older, less good junk to its own special folder. And then I'll get around to posting new stuff a bit more regularly. So yeah. Look forward to that.

BUT YEAH THERE'S ALSO THE SPRITE-O-VERSE REBOOT THAT IS DEFINITELY AN ONGOING THING. I probably mentioned it when I posted that one episode here just out of the blue. I do that hoping someone might see it and be curious/confused enough to go check out the comic and read the rest of it. Anyway, that link's gonna be riiiiiiight....here.

And that YouTube channel thing me and :iconzanshlou: have been doing? It's still going. To check that out, you need only follow the link at the end of this sentence. This one. Right here.

So that's pretty much what I've got for now. Might just go ahead and start working on fixing up my gallery now. 

Activity


Draw This Again: Tailii
It hasn't quite been 12 years since I uploaded my first ever drawing to DeviantART, but Tailii here was it. Way back when I thought I could use Flash for literally everything. I mean LITERALLY everything. As I was typing this up, I went to check and realized you don't see any real Photoshop stuff in my gallery until 2009! All my pixel art was MS Paint and all my comics and drawings were either sketches or Flash!

Anyway, yeah. I know how to use Photoshop now, and I've gotten better at going from paper sketch to final Photoshoppery. I used to have so much trouble with that. Sketch? Looks good. Stuff drawn entirely IN Photoshop? Usually also pretty good. Going over the scanned sketch in Photoshop? The line art usually came out either fuzzy or really inconsistent and awkwardly thick depending on how I tried to do it. Thing is, I kept trying to take shortcuts instead of spending a decent amount of time getting it done right. Here? I sketched and fully inked the drawing, scanned it and went over the lines in Photoshop using my tablet, cleaning them up as I went along.

This took HOURS, but it freakin' shows. Seriously, compare that line art to something like this: fav.me/d1ytj8q
(Incidentally, I've also redrawn THAT piece as well, and I'm debating doing it in Photoshop.)

Makuta Sprite Redraw
This SHOULD be the last of the BIONICLE stuff for a while.

I guess with great pixel art inspiration comes delusional levels of game development inspiration. Well into my BZP days (I want to say around 2006), I had edited a bunch of Dragon Ball Z: Legacy of Goku sprites into BIONICLE characters, and made the immense logical leap to "I can definitely make a real game with these." Reality set in pretty quickly as I realized I could do approximately 3 of the 874 things I wanted to do with Game Maker 6's drag/drop commands. I'm pretty sure the phrase "writing code" wasn't even part of my vocabulary yet.

But yeah. Makuta here was one of the sprites that was too big to base on a DBZ sprite, so I made my own. The original actually came out pretty good by my standards for the time, especially the mask, which I only made minor alterations to for the redrawn version. (Besides color and shading, that is.)

Matoran Lekonua
So yeah. I think I mentioned that BIONICLE was the fandom that got me into pixel art. Well, I was no stranger to fanart by the time I got into it, but I have to credit BZPower with getting me into digital art beyond shitty MS Paint sprite comics. Inspired by some of the amazing work I saw others creating, I learned to use Photoshop and eventually got into Flash and 3D animation thanks to this fandom.

Leko was originally my OC/avatar for the BZP forums, and was named "Lekonua." And in typical "my OC is special and unique and cool" fashion, I made him ALL the colors because why the fuck not? 

ANYWAY. Leko got a name shortening and a more original design that is still heavily inspired by this original form (blue head, short stature, rough shape of the mask, green eyes), and became a Comic Shorts character and remains my main OC/avatar to this day. I guess I felt particularly nostalgic one day and figured I'd throw a fresh coat of digital paint on that old design.
