I CHALLENGE YOU *epic music on the background* TO (oh gosh, there’re all these lovely colors, so hard to choose XD) DO THE NUMBER 27 and the inspiration word is: “distance”. I’ll be looking forward to the result! ;)

Alchemist Alsmiffy - challenging the very fabric of the universe, the flux has fragmented him and has torn him to pieces due to him playing god. What human origin he once had, nothing of it remains.

I was considering not posting this at all ‘cause it’s a little… out there… anyway, an accompanying piece to King Ross. After this I’ll draw warlord Trott and you’ll all be rid of me in this tag I promise :^) it’s just my high fantasy AU and i thought you might enjoy it. FORGIVE ME, HATTERS
just my interpretationnn

CBR's always awesome art challenge, The Line It is Drawn, gets into the holidays spirit this week by splicing comics with Christmas. My favs are above, but plenty more to enjoy HERE.

7 days of color: red

I decided that for fun I wanted to do the 7 Days of Colours challenge, but with a twist: my OCs must wear something with the featured colour! These four are, I feel, the most fashionable of the bunch; too bad though as I would have loved to deal with the others I’ve left out.

Today’s theme is Red, and Introduction. Basically, each have their individual style, with a red element in their dress.

Some were wondering if I was going to do a 2014 summary of art, so here it is! I counted around 62 complete works in total, so I didn’t add each and every one… More like the most faved by my followers. :)

2014 was a funky as hell year. I had some serious breakdowns the first half of the year, but thanks to that, I couldn’t stop drawing. I grew up a little both as an artist and person. 

I finished a 31 day challenge, which in the previous years I’d just start, and… well it’d just stay there. Lol. I was surprised to actually finish through. I think from there on I started realizing deeper artistic responsibilities. 

"Creatures" opened a few doors for me this year. The many notes brought in a whole lot of interest. I ended up designing for an indie lolita brand, and now I’m also closing the year (and rushing into the next!) doing costume design for an indie mobile game. There’s nothing worse than stagnation when it comes to an artist, so I rather be busy with plenty to draw, even if I have barely any time to breathe lol. Of course, I couldn’t have done it without the support of my followers everywhere.

BIG ASS THANKS, GUYS. You are the best. Have great holidays, and a happy new year. ✩◝( ´ ꒳ `∗)◟

2014 - A Year in Review

image


Happy Holidays everyone! As some of you may know, DayZ just recently celebrated its first year in Steam’s Early Access program. The Early Access experience has been both challenging and rewarding for everyone on the development team. With that in mind, we have put together a high level document looking at what we have accomplished together in 2014. Pairing that with our goals ahead for 2015, we all have a lot to look forward to.

2014 - A Year in Review

With 0.52 hitting stable branch today, the holidays should see some interesting gameplay. I for one look forward to the expanded options for the roleplaying communities, as well as the outstanding changes to player versus player engagements I plan to have on first person only servers (when rescuing innocents from bandits, of course!). Suppressor support, hotfixes to address the majority of the gunshot audio issues, new animations, the first iteration of the chainsaw, and of course who could forget the seasonal festivities. I hope to see you all around the Christmas tree in Novod. I’ll be looking for the bear that has my name on it.

Neighboring states challenge Colorado’s legal weed law

The states of Nebraska and Oklahoma are taking their neighbor Colorado to court over its first-in-the-nation marijuana rules which for nearly a year now have let adults enjoy recreational weed without legal reprimand.

On Thursday, attorneys for the two co-plaintiffs filed paperwork with the United States Supreme Court with hopes of getting the country’s top justices to agree that the federal prohibition on marijuana trumps the Colorado law enacted in January.

I really loved the movie Big Hero 6, but since I hadn’t gotten around to drawing any fanart yet, I jumped at the chance to do so for The Line It Is Drawn’s holiday week.  The original suggestion only called for Baymax and Hiro, but I couldn’t resist adding in the rest of the team, and before I knew it I was drawing an entire science lab…

Since it came out so nice, I’m offering the original ink piece for sale for $25!  Hit me up at rachel_ordway@yahoo.com.

Season’s greetings!
