This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get Core Membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get Core Membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
A gift I did for this man's birthday party. Can you guess what the theme was?
I was very lucky to finish it in time since I got the most insane arm pain right after it was done. I could hardly draw for a week. Gym is useful but sometimes downright dangerous. Watch your bench press techniques people, Let me be the warning example.
I knew this would be printed in a huge scale so I spent a ton of time making sure the surfaces had a lot of brushwork to look at. I really enjoy doing that stuff even if it takes a long time.
I had a strong urge to paint a bee for some reason. In these instances I've noticed it's not wise to question why the idea came to me and just to get it out. It usually feels very satisfying to get it out of my head and in front of my eyes.
Looking back at my ig history of 2016. I hope this sketchbook I'm working on reaches the end during 2017!
I have so many sketchbooks that I just abandoned for no reason. I hope this year has started well for you all
Personally I'm feeling a bit lost in few areas of life. However I'm putting at least good effort into fixing myself. It's a process and I'm sure I'll use art as means to look at my life, because that seems to always work.
After the exhibition I'm more free to experiment with different levels of crazy visually and that's freeing too. The sketchbook has really worked wonders as a low stress level kind of free space to get weird with it.
The experimental nature of my art has always been something that has been a TERRIBLE marketing move. However screw that! \o/
I hope I can keep surprising you with creative things you didn't see coming in 2017. (suggestions are welcome)
I think my whole last year was a complete rollercoaster ride. I don't think I've worked so hard in my life. The games I worked on were incredibly different and jumping between polar opposite visual styles. Was like doing paint-yoga for 12 months non-stop.
So where am I now after it's all shipped and on sale? Feeling very proud because Resogun really is fantastic and when playing it I can feel all the love we put into it's game design and aesthetics.
Also I'm dead tired... and kind of lost.
I spent so much time focused on achieving the goals I set for myself at work that now that I achieved them there's suddenly this big void of nothing. I think I work pretty well under pressure but when I'm not "driven" by a goal that I feel passionate about like that I unravel like toilet paper in the wind.
Yes the obvious thing is to focus on next games. However I feel like I kind of need more substance in my life. I just have no idea what that might be so my plan is to:
A) give myself a bit time off to just be for once, maybe even reconnect with people I haven't seen in ages B) explore things I could do with my art.
I feel like doing a small visual project would be fun at this point. When creating a whole world for a game you can feel a bit hollow afterwards because it's probably 2 to 3 years of your life that you've spent in a completely fictional space. Doing something smaller right now would probably feel like less risky for my soul. It needs to mend before it can give again.
