“I didn’t get my Toa Stone from anyone, I found it. On the remains of an old corpse that had fallen at the hands of some of the nastier wildlife, the types that I didn’t even know of at the time. I became the outlander of the local Toa. Taking care of the forest, watching for really nasty predators and making sure they weren’t dangerous, taking out poachers, there was a pretty good amount of stuff to do.”

This is an OC of my good friend @geardirector, a Toa of Plantlife Trava, commissioned by him as a birthday present.

So happy birthday Gears! <3

The photoshop postprocessing is done by @demitsorou, the rotational GIF was made through Bluerender and Adobe AfterEffects.

Having A Ball - 14"x11" Mixed Media on canvas in floating frame will be available as part of the upcoming Summer Lovin’ Art Show beginning on Saturday June 24th at the Flower of Life Gallery in downtown Lockport, IL.

I shared the progress steps on the digital creation side, and now here is the rest of the process.  Once I have printed the art onto the canvas, I applied 3 coats of varnish.  Once dried I then wrap the canvas onto the stretch bars.  

Then I tried something new, by applying an embellishing gel medium onto the areas of the wave, the splashes and the rippling edges of water washing onto the beach. This really brings those areas to life with nice dimension.  For even more depth I then used acrylic paint to enhance the splashes and whitecaps.   And then gave the entire thing a few more coats of varnish to seal it up.  

Mounted it into the frame, dust covered the back and added the mounting brackets and it’s ready for the big show!

I wanted to post another update on our progress with the Wellen mod. Because of our recent plateau with the anim files becoming extremely distorted upon exporting them to the game, I have taken it upon myself to work on other aspects of the mod, including the other character, Wapathy. 

We were originally going to make the two characters separate mods, but we have decided to put them into a bundle together. Wapathy is the Programmer as Wellen is the Artist. They complement each other yet they work as stand alone characters too. 

There will be a lot of different challenges Wapathy will have us face, just like how Wellen is making us pull our hair out at times. But I have faith that we will eventually figure it all out. On top of this, while we troubleshoot the animation issues with the game, I have already put together more of Wellen’s “sketches” so that I have them ready to animate once the time comes.The red bird monster was my first attempt, and these are the other two of the main 3. There will be two more designs after this and I am officially done with everything, minus the animation portion.

I can’t wait to be able to bring the sketches to life so that they can aid Wellen within game, and to have Wellen and Wapathy work together, fully functioning and available to whoever wants to play as them!

Once you fall into my claws, it’s all over.

Have some Malum. Wow, a Glatorian MOC? First of its kind? Yep!

A birthday present to lovely @zippyscrapheap. <3


(PSA: Tumblr is apparently an asshole and does not index posts with external links for search, so no external links in my posts, hopefully it’ll help.)
