So… I was away for awhile and forgot the info to log into my old account… plus most of my hosted image links in my old threads appear to have died. A few pieces are pretty much lost unfortunately but I had most of them saved in one form or another.
So here’s my new thread in which I will first dump what I have of my old pieces and then start posting new stuff as I do it lol!
So here’s the old stuff, hosted on DA now so they won’t break again:July 18, 2018 at 11:02 pm #151656
And now for new stuff!

Whoa…how?July 19, 2018 at 5:41 am #151664
How what?July 19, 2018 at 8:25 am #151665
How do you do that? You must have a limitless supply of patience.July 19, 2018 at 12:08 pm #151672
Do what? I’m really still not clear what we’re talking about here lolJuly 19, 2018 at 2:46 pm #151676
You’re artistry, particularly in shading and lighting, is incredible.July 19, 2018 at 3:17 pm #151677
As to how… I use reference photos for poses/lighting pretty frequently. N I do a lot of masking stuff onto duplicate body parts and insignia images that I hide behind the background but keep the masked item in the foreground. And when it comes to using the gradient backgrounds for shading/shadows/highlights/etc. I use the (often later hidden) lines of the pieces I’m putting them over on as a guide and/or the lighting of reference photos as a guide. And I layer them and mess with their opacity until it looks right.
N yes, some patience is involved with that but also like… I rarely do a piece in one sitting. I’ll work on it here n there over the course of a week or so usually because yeah… not THAT patient lol.July 25, 2018 at 5:16 pm #151768

Good to see you back. Your work is incredibleFebruary 28, 2019 at 11:17 pm #154784
Holy…this is amazing work! I love the use of colors and perspective! This is more than just character creation…this is art. My favorite is the smiley face guy! The second guy hopping over the ledge is fantastic. I noticed your archer too, I did a very similar pose way back when, when there was an archery CDC! Stuff like this is so inspiring.March 22, 2019 at 3:03 am #155177

Hahah, not that I read, no, I just thought it was kinda dramatic and intimidating… my headcanon on this charrie was actually sorta as a non-powered vigilante anti-hero thingy with a bit of a brutal approach.
N oh yeah! Still round! Love to lurk n see what people make, just been too busy to make do any pieces myself for awhile!
Good to see you back. Your work is incredible
I never left! Just haven’t had the time to do any new pieces. But thanks a bundle!

Tysm! N yeah, the smiley is everyone’s fav, even made it into the HoF. Which is funny, cuz I wasn’t totally happy with how it turned out n def don’t consider it my best piece, it was really just the first one where I really tried to do a custom pose n mess with the whole gradient shading technique I saw ppl using but there you go! N awe, I musta missed that CDC, I just saw some fool shootin a bow like that on one of those talent shows n thought it’d be cool to try to make the pose! One of the few pieces that was totally mine, not workin off a contest prompt or redoin someone else’s charrie actually.
