No Shoes From This Point Onwards by angrymikko
No Shoes From This Point Onwards
I was asked to send a piece to my former teacher's art exhibition. And I did this as 2 meters tall print on canvas and sent it to the gallery. 
I was thinking about what connect the artists and I thought about the unique skill we have to visualize the places in our minds for other people. 

original size is 11779x16657px at 400dpi
The reason why I did it in this scale is because I wanted the brushwork detail to show in the wall-size print. A lot of the surfaces are painted intentionally in layers with different levels of pressure so you get this sort of raster effect of color when you view it from far away. 
I spent a lot of time just deleting all descriptive detail that the viewer could see without my "help".

Sometimes I feel like just suggesting a shape gives the piece more clarity in the viewer's mind than me taking away that connection by filling in too much definition. 

I hope summer has been good for you all. My vacation has yet to start but it's so close now! =)
ABDUCTION! by angrymikko
Survival of the fittest.

I'm sure there's a lesson to be learned in here somewhere kids.
Siren by angrymikko
Please listen to Siren by Rustoga while viewing this piece: YOU CAN DO SO BY CLICKING THIS LINK

I really liked doing this commission because I can honestly say I got the image done exactly the way I saw it in my head while listening to this piece. 

Personally I don't want to over explain it because I think a good cover should be like a door for the viewers own imagination to go through. Sometimes it's more important for me to present the relevant questions than even try to answer them for everybody. 

There's a cosmic night view of this that I threw in as a free companion piece but I think it's better to release it only when Rustoga finds proper use for it =)

Thanks for stopping by =)

p.s. If you're looking for an illustration please understand that I often work only on weekends on freelance projects. 
Allergy by angrymikko
You don't really get to make an image out of your cat allergy that often so I thought why not?
I can somehow relate to this kitten here. You know that feeling you get sometimes when you don't exactly know where you are or what's going on yet you just know there's beauty in life you could appreciate if you weren't covered in filters and plastic? It's enough to make anyone's insides burst into flames.

No one?

Well if that's too much for you to relate to then you can just consider this as yet another way of saying "I'm allergic to pussy!"

 It's been a rough year but I'll make it through this. Thank you all for being there. I read every single comment and have been trying to reply with the best of my ability even though I'm really bad at that stuff sometimes.

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. =)

  • Mood: Hurt
  • 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.
