I'd like to have a christmass-y pic of bunnies or anything in my gallery
I got a new job!
I'm now a full-time concept artist for Housemarque that develops games for next gen consoles. It's a really hard job btw. I've painted this week 7,5hrs every day and that's not even counting in all the hours I study 3d and do personal projects at home! But seriously speaking even though I'm tired at the end of the day I'm also extremely happy to be able to combine two things I love; games and art. I might sound overly enthusiastic but that's because this really is the job I've wanted since I was a child and I've worked really hard for years to get it. It feels so different than any job I've done before. I feel like I really want to make everything I do there as good as possible because the paintings will still exist as pieces of art the next day when I return to work. (I guess you can't understand this if you haven't washed dishes before like I have)
I can't upload the paintings I've done there until those projects are published etc. But stay tuned for news from Housemarque to see what's coming next.
(Just don't ask me that because I can't speak about what's going on behind closed doors there) They recently made Super Stardust HD for PS3, it looks spectacular and got great reviews but I haven't played it yet. But I like that style of colourful effects with big effects. Here's a link to the creators interview: [link]
Omg I can't believe I actually work with someone whose interview is on ign. I could die happy now.
And thank you Deviantart.com for the DD
Thank you for Harhakuva.org for the image of the week
I'm so happy over 1200 users downloaded that wallpaper. To me a real artist is happy to share his work and not hide it in exclusive snobbish behaviour. That's why I prefer selling cheap prints instead of destroying the original image after a few prints. (Arty people in Finland prefer this method
p.s.:I don't care if Britney paid the producers with baby limbs and organs or whatever but Blackout rocks! It's a way more complete album than Timbaland's "Shock Value" (btw why did he need so many guest's on his album if he could have just edited his own voice to sound decent too?) I like "Hot as Ice" so much! Who can listen it for 8 seconds without smiling when the huhahaha-bit starts?!
I'm grinning even now just thinking about it.
Did you know that you can freely colour my new lineart in my scraps. So far the lineart that's available:
Just note me which piece you wish to colour and I'll send it hi-res to your e-mail address.
Here's some colouring by these nice deviants:
I'll feature all the finished pieces here or in my following submissions. It's just so great to see how each artist brings his/her own way of seeing these linearts so I'm really excited about it
Come on join the fun!
I've started decorating my new place with prints!
