LD48 – connected worlds concept art

Hello.
Been awile since an update.
Lost my tablet pen but found it again, and it’s taken me a bit to get back into digital painting since then.
I have been busy with drawing and painting with children. Felt pens, pencil, oil pastel, and poster paint has been the medium of choice.
Here are digital painting s I created today for Ludum Dare. The theme is connected worlds.
I’m looking at creating an open world mmo-like zone. Models will be created tonight and I’ll put everything together in Unity3d on Sunday.

Portrait I painted of Reddit user – syntheticturtle.

This was from redditgetsdrawn.

I’ve started working on another game – this time for the Peace, Love and Jam. It starts next weekend but I’m going to just work on it during the weekend since I don’t have time during the week.

I’ve been setting up an easel at Fairfield Community Centre to get the after-school kids to do some art. It’s great – got a minute of six year olds, up to twelve. I’ll make another post in the future with some of these images (been taking photos on my phone).

Enjoy this digital painting, three layer, line, gray, and color.

ted in space

Monday morning was spent digital painting in MyPaint and GIMP – “Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein IN SPACE”.

This is going to be my next game in Unity – extending on from Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein

Here is the line (mypaint), grayscale (GIMP), and color (GIMP) works.

Spent the day on Saturday putting together Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein in Unity3d. It’s three scenes linked together with a next button. If you want to play it – check it out on GameJolt

I’ve continued the game dev thing after releasing this – back into MyPaint for digital sketching.

Epic Jam is a jam I noticed that I wouldn’t mind making something for. It’s unique in the fact that subthemes are added as the jam happens. The main theme is – First Time.

I’ve continued some Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein drawings/paintings, and it would do me good to work on Adam ‘Ted’ Frankenstein further.

Anyway, here’s some MyPaint digital line, followed by a grayscale paintover in GIMP. Next is to take this art into Blender.

Giants Towers

Took a pastel work from Whaihanga into GIMP and performed a line, grayscale, and color traceover. It has been a very long time since I have done this – not since I have my old Medium Wacom tablet. The small tablet handles the line trace fine.
Anyway, one of the main reasons why I did this was for concept house designs to model out in 3d. It’s always easier to produce 2d works first to get a feeling into what I want to create.
And without further ado. Enjoy -
warning: there be giants.

side look

I have continued to paint works that have been posted on r/artcontroldrawsyou, tonal grayscal and color layers were created.

This is the theme on EOW: Temple of A Hundred Relic. Followed by two paintings – one of a mother and child (line, bw, and color) and woman looking sideways (line, bw).

Enjoy -

artcontrol draws you

So since being banned from posting on RedditGetsDrawn I decided to go ahead and make my own subreddit – artcontroldrawsyou.
I have been writing Reddit python scripts that gets data from one subreddit and posting the data to a new subreddit/saving the data.

I have also been getting back into doing tonal black and white/color digital works. These are not included in this post – but keep an eye out in future.

banned from rgd

Today I awoke to one message on Reddit: You have been banned from RedditGetsDrawn.

Banned for the art I submit. My art is so dangerous that it has to be banned. The harm that my art has caused others is unspeakable. People kill themselves by just having a peak.
It’s quite funny that the only option the mods of RGD have for me is a ban. I rarely talk on the subreddit (or artist lounge where there is discussion), I only submit art.
The comments I have been receiving have only been positive, nothing negative. The mods tell me that my work is often reported though. I wish they would just ignore the reports.
Anyway, I can’t publicly send others art on rgd now, but I can PM so I’m going to keep drawing people and just PM.
I have been drawing for such a long time and it’s a bit depressing about the ban, but I’m going to keep

friday nite

Today was good.
In the morning I visited Verne, giving him a hand with his computers. I need to write scripts in python to help him. Podcast, web scraping and text to mp3.
At Noon we went to the centre where the homeschool kids were working with Blender. Lawrance was also there.
I was out the back helping with the computer room for the afterschoolers. Teacher only day for Fairfield Intermediate so kids were hanging around everywhere. This is fine though as it’s great to have them around and show them stuff on the computer. They act as good mentors for the younger ones also.
We watched Frozen and played with the electronics kit.
Tonight I was very busy on the computer at home and did a bunch of digital line works with RedditGetsDrawn
Cheers,
William

fri centre

Currently out of the back of centre running the afterschool computer program here in Fairfield. Fridays is the one day a week that it’s important for me to get in at Noon. The homeschool kids come in and do educational stuff on the computers. The focus has been on Blender.
I did a little bit of modeling from last week but ended up digital drawing. Here are the results:
