Elusive Sunset by angrymikko
Elusive Sunset
During this year's Pride I had one of those days that really make me not only be okay with myself but just overwhelmingly happy and so grateful to be gay.

I wanted to make a drawing so I would always remember that. I can't bottle sunlight but I can sure as hell try! Thank you for the guy in the picture for being a muse for this drawing and great company for the afternoon we spent together =) 

I experimented with felt tip pens and white ink in addition to my normal sumi-e tools.

Please listen to the track I made this cover art for. I think the song is so good I just looped it the entire time doing this. Also what a dream job to do. Doing freelance gigs is so often not worth the hassle. I just said "look I love the track and I can do an image for it, if you like it you can buy it as a cover, if not that's fine"
I don't know what it is but I really like the way this turned out. I know it's gross when artists like their own stuff but don't we compensate it by hating our pieces for years and years? Anyway I hope you enjoy it. Maybe I like it because looking at the piece and listening to the synthwave beats is the closest I'm ever going to get to the feeling of riding a motorcycle through the night rain in a leather jacket in a late 90's videogame =D

Hollow Mirror
I just wanted to be somewhere quiet for a small moment. This is what summer in Finland feels like to me. Sometimes it's surreal because day and night look the same.

The things I do to avoid painting the unpleasant pieces: no.84 drawing my height Totoro next to the fridge. (Super useful!)Totorofb by angrymikko

I'm doing alright. My father's funeral was nice even without his body present. We played Ace of Spades and Thunderstruck at full volume near the ocean like he always wanted. 

It's not just my father I'm missing. Other important people are gone from my life too but I'm doing the best I can to patch myself up.
Mostly that means doing a lot of art.

I have just tons of excess love I don't know what to do with but I'm going to be okay.  I haven't met most of you ever but just by being here and looking at my art I feel a lot of you know me very well.

Thank you again for your support it means embarrassingly much to me. :hug:

Didn't crank up the contrast this time because I wanted to preserve those light wash stroke textures for a bigger print. 

My life is messy

Volume XVI

So... videogames.

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 

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. =)

  • Listening to: back to black
  • Watching: the clouds go by
  • Playing: Resogun
  • Eating: On a damn diet for the 3rd month in a row.
  • Drinking: lol, I wish! See above.

There's a new trend of thanking for faves that never happened. 

I fully appreciate a ton of artists and art on deviantart.

However if you want to see who these individuals are please head over to my favourites section. 

This comment space seems unreliable for that.

Many of the thanks for the favs are actually favs that NEVER happened.
