the funny part is that I asked American if he can just give me some pointers on it, just so I can elevate it and he liked it so much he placed it with the pile of pitches of the studio 😗 will it see the light of day? Probably not, but it’s very flattering!
Opened a storein my site! I have prints finally and t shirts. Also, I want to design more shirts and buy from myself 😂 but the idea is to sell art to make art. I want to raise enough to print my book again. Finally a second print run and hopefully on a thick cover!
i’m right now actually on vacation! I’m in Holland Rotterdam enjoying coffee and listening to the cat babysitter, I didn’t have a proper vacation for the last 3 years!
i signed with a gallery on a SOLO exhibition in June 2023. With proper promotion and I keep painting! I got my mojo back to paint now that I got a date I have a REASON to push myself
alice work should be finalized in December. I wish we had the budget to get more artists but we can 100% do it on our own. And I’m versitle enough to mimick any style if we need some spice! I’m kinda terrified honestly. What tf will I do afterwards.
novel and game?
I want to write my second novel and it’s building up slowly, the first book took me 10 years. Learning how to write, finding an editor and making the art. So I hope with my current experience it will take MUCH less time, and I want to learn animation and finish my anatomy course. I think it’s important to at least dabble with formats of art.
so a whole lot of movement. I love being an artist and I just wish that I will always be able to 1. have artist to boss around 2. make money from being an artist. This year was good to me, let’s hope I’ll be a great art director for a big project next year!
Hi! Sorry for the long un-update but i had missiles shot at my town and with all the mess going on with Corona stuff i honestly didn’t have time to write anything properly. Today i wanted to specifically show you guys something that i think will turn out pretty cool. i had this idea for a video game. i want to create a pitch, American told me that without a team this won’t amount to nothing- he is totally right, but i’m doing it because I WANT TO. like i don’t care if nothing will come out of it, why not.
Summary of the game:
Xoa, Main Character, Mercenary, hired by mega corporation Johnson & Dick (J&D). Sent to planet Abundance (settlement 38) to reclaim the planet and wipe out the current population. Essentially rebooting the settlement.
The population was infected by a toxic gas, it made them act “insane” and violent. But they perceive themselves not as drooling murderous lunatics but as perfectly normal.
The player finds the Virus is actually an entity, the collective, located inside of the planet and it needs to be killed before it’s out of its cage completely. In the middle of the collective there’s a little girl connected who that is who the player hears talking to. HER mind is what controls the “imagery” of the world.
The styling will be 2 styles clashing with each other constantly. one hallucinations and one that is real. there will be the “regular world, safe styling dark generic”
and there’s the “wtf is that” As the game progresses the hallucinations will become worse and blackouts will sometimes leave the player in random areas. This will be used as a tool to push the narrative forward. Used sparingly is the best way to utilize.
These are all WIPS, i’m in the middle of creating everything from scratch and i’m trying to do ONE thing a day, so at least a page or something so it will take me about 2 months or so to complete.
I still need to properly design the main character and design the other characters i nthe game but i do want them to be based on real proportions
some of the art i completed and some just needs more rendering
but i did design the J&D logo design and Merch from that company. i wanted to make this look very uninspiring and very generic. the company in the game will not actually be visible or really talked to, the idea is that they OWN the place so you can see their stuff. but besides hiring Xoa for the job… they are not physically there. i took stuff from WW2 like the poster’s pose, the bags, the lunchbox- all based on designs from Nazi propaganda / fascist / ww2 stuff. in order to give the connotation that they are pretty much assholes.
Their logo is based on a penis. also placed on the guy’s penis also their full name is JHONSON AND DICK. like if it’s not clear they are assholes, i didn’t do my job right. also i made the guy creepy on purpose LOL.
This pitch will be 53 pages long and i’ll add some full on blown art in there, it will be pretty cool. I’ll probably offer everyone to read it for free. no idea what will come out of this but who cares! i just want to paint this out of the way so i can start properly my next novel!
Thank you all for your wonderful birthday wishes. this year i’ll celebrate in “capsules” that is i’ll see friends individually and not havea full blown party which i usually do each year. it’s like 30 people at once. this birthday month is super awesome and pretty fun so far! birthday Month!
Remember i told you i’m working on a Super secret project with an Unnamed Polish company?
well the project ended and unfortunately i can’t show anything to anyone besides on interviews- i can show from MY laptop, not online. the company’s investors decided not to go forward with the project at this time with the style we have created in an explanation that it’s “too big and complex” for right now. i don’t disagree, i don’t think that the team they have is capable of something this complex.
i’m finally painting in oils, above will be the next one! and i sold almost ALL my dolls! i’m so relieved because i got them from the gallery and i don’t mess with sales! and i lost money because of the exhibition closing and i not only broke even i even got a little to spare. which for me as an artist- that someone is willing to give me money for my art is always a WOW factor for me. the only girl i didn’t sell just yet is Midea
i think i’ll save her until July in my studio and if she won’t sell i’ll give her to my mom. i finally understand how to paint men, also apparently i love extra masculine “straight” looking men Sissy boys. this will be the painting afterwards- i used @illiaGolem as a reference and he Graciously approved. i’m addicted to blonde men, Addicted. i don’t care if your skin is dark or if you are asian or black or whatever, i honestly don’t care about ethnicities, i care about hair color. be a blonde. and have proportion of course.
Apparently also when i mock sexuality and not take it seriously at all not only it works with the whimsical concept / world that i’m creating it also makes my art not look like porn. when i paint sexuality i paint porn. i don’t have that “fine line” most people that in an understanding what is sexy and what is pornographic. to me it seems totally the same.
I’m working on my OWN game, i’m developing it. i might ask your help when i’ll feel comfortable sharing info about it, but let’s say it’s more of a whimsical Doom game. i want a fun game, a small one and with not too much depth, just a kill or be killed styled game. it’s not like i have an investor or anything but i thought.. well. i can write AND i can paint so i can just create this idea i had! why not.
a guy named Barry Keating that we kinda became friends that worked with the unnamed Polish company is a screen writer (? i think) and i asked him to send me if he can some pdfs so i’ll understand the difference between writing a novel and a Game document pitch. he did, i read and he’s helping me structure it correctly. the art? i’ll share with you guys my ideas and designs, it’s mostly for fun. i don’t expect ANYTHING to come out of it besides having my own project, let’s say…. Documented.
YES i’m working on my second novel, it’s called “Amandla: book of shadows” it’s about the witch’s life Amanda from the first book and it’s a full on prelude for the first book. what was missing from the first novel was about the city itself. My narrator fell into this pitch black hole of a city, they didn’t know anything about the city so what the reader read about it- was what the main character knew. almost nothing.
So hopefully this one will fill up that gap AND be interesting enough as it’s own life story. i Like writing in a journal type of way.
i’m still working on her face, i’m still designing her look in my vision. i know she looks mixed and i know she kinda looks middle eastern or brazilian. but once i’ll hit her face correctly i’ll know who she is.
thank you for the birthday wishes, i love you all.
Today is January 31 and yesterday me and the Unnamed Polish company i’m working for as an art director, finished a Vertical slice of the game that i can’t say anything about online. Tomorrow they will present it to the big bosses / publishing / board. I’m practically shitting my pants. my anxiety works in mysterious ways, i get or anxious too early or too late, when i’m working i’m fine, i have a system, i have goals, i have lists.
but now i got a week off (just from the polish) and i’m slowly losing my mind, because my Direct boss said that the company is considering opening a subsidiary company for our.. division? team? i don’t know the technical term for it, but just for “us” and if it will happen it will be in a month or two. Either way it’s a Big deal and it’s a good sign but… i’m scared still that they will say that they are cancelling the project and this is dead in the water or Corona will fuck up and close the company- there’s a million things that can go wrong that have nothing to do with me. i know i’m a good art director but i can’t control what happens outside of the art.
this week… i think.. i want to do an Instagram Live, (click here to get to my instagram) and i’m going to tackle Joaquin Phoenix’s joker (i love love crushing love Jared Leto but i didn’t love the design) and i’m going to Pre- Prepare it to merge with Margot Robbie’s Harley Queen a Solo image and an image that i can merge with Harley. of course i’ll be doing both- but i thought it can be fun to do the makeup and dressup in instagram live and or answer questions or just talk about the new stuff going on like BELOW. just keep an eye out.
so this last few months I’ve been working for them AND Alice Asylum AND my own projects aahjghghagashdgakhksdg kill me. so let’s list them!
i’m going to write my second novel “Amanda: Book of Shadows” title is not final, and it will revolve around the witch residing in the black city of Nuerva and it will be a book about her and the history of the city. i’m going to be helped by fellow wiccan Alejandra Mazo to accurately and respectively describe the witches i want to capture and the book will have integrated within it a merge of spells, incantations and art. lots and lots of art. i also had an idea that the book was “found” by the British library and i wrote to them and they actually helped! i got a proper signature and everything from them with an explanation how old books were cataloged and preserved and everything, pretty amazing.
2. for about 3 years i’ve been dying DYINNGGG to have an idea for a game, everyone i meet in the gaming industry has an idea (good or mostly bad) for a game and i’ve been kinda pissed at myself that i don’t have anything- well, i finally have one! i had (as usual) a dream. it’s about “Settlement 38” and a main character i currently call XOA. She is an exterminator, she’s been hired by a corporation that owns that Mining planet to clear out the place out of everything. infected humans and monsters that took over the place. the general idea that i had was to merge this gore doom like atmosphere with Gibli art and merge in a secondary storyline of an entity living inside of the mines taking over the consciousness of the human population above. it’s a rough draft now- i’ll write more about it when the time will come.
3. Exhibition art- I want to paint in oils, i want to really focus on it, i got some dolls in the studio that i got because the gallery i exhibited in closed down. i was supposed to have an exhibition this July but Corona. i also got some prints here. i need to sell these girls (200$ each) and i need to sell my prints. i need to get rid of everything that is not specifically towards oil paints. it’s distracting and it’s not good for my mental well being. i enjoy CREATING art, i absolutely hate hording it. i love being an artist and an art director i hate having stuff in my studio. the perfect house for me is 4 gray concrete walls.
so generally, i’m good, tired but tomorrow i might get the corona vaccine so… fingers crossed. please dear lady goddess let me get out of the house get drunk in a bar and troll my straight friends. thank you for the support! <3 i hope this year was kind to you <3 <3
I’m Dying to tell you about the project i’m working with All In Games DYING. But i can say it’s my first international gig as an Art director and what i says GOES which is the most fantastic feeling i can request. you probably know that i’m extremely specific on art and stuff. but unfortunately i can’t tell you anything but i can say that phase 1 is ending at January 16 and cross your fingers.
today i’ll try to summarize these last 3 months wtf is going on art-wise! let’s start with oils:
I finally know what i want to paint in oils, escapism, day dreaming. running away from reality using drugs, music, imaginary friends. whatever that is usable to avoid it- anything to block out the real world. my only issue is that i want to paint women and Men, the problem is that my Men are not interesting. i’ll figure it out but it’s going to be a lot of trial and error. the series is called “High”
i have a lot of goals- one of them is to create apparel and then i started imagining myself selling stuff and… oh dear god.. having stocks in my house…. ew… and then talking to… people. ew. no. but i did want to design some oversized sweatshirts and have “like” a collection. and then i figured out that i’m actually only looking to do the campaign itself LOL. i don’t care about anything i just want the campaign. so that’s what i did- i called @dannylyZiser to come over- she hosts IGN in israel and apparently lives 10 minutes away from my house! and i copied my favorite company’s ads- Calvin Klein. i don’t want to make anything serious or original. i just wanted to have fun and make tributes. you can see the 5 images on my Instagram here
Can we talk for a moment about the Amber vs Depp situation?
Usually i don’t take stands here or there to one side but in this specific case i need to speak my mind.
I saw the way amber treated this case with depp. I saw the way johnny didn’t get that recognision for being abused and i have to say something about it- today straight men are not allowed to be vulnerable or to speak their emotions out. Personally as a gay man i’m allowed “more” and i’m allowed to say if something is bothering me especially as my persona is more feminine.
This is not a gender’s fault. This is a society problem. This is toxic masculinity, where sociery hence men women and all in between including people from my own ltgbt group that even i as a man felt pressure to act in a certain way or look in a certain way. To be more “manly” (whatever that means) and to shut up about my emotions. I saw and felt and i still see the way straight men are pressured into being quiet because that’s more “manly”
I must say that i was mansplained by women a lot when i was only expressing my emotions online. (Yes men can be shitbags, again society not gender)
I think it’s up to a point where a man says that a womam abused him it’s not taken seriously. I don’t care about genitalia, an abuser is an abuser.
Also why do i feel he’s right? She thinks people were paid to dislike her, she doesn’t feel guilt or shame or suprisement. If this would of happened to a normal person they’d at least say something on the lines that they are really in shock over this scenario. Nothing.
I think @lilireinhart will be better suited, she’s mega talented.
She’s curvier and i think a strong female lead should express femininity and amber doesn’t fir into that. She looks like a stick figure with a bad wig. For a woman to be strong like “a man” it doesn’t mean she needs to have manly attributes.
Also the suit is shit who designed this catastrophe. even my doodle is better then what they had in the movie.
ALICE! there’s exciting stuff happening behind the scenes that i can’t talk about but i must way that i love our team! i wish i could tell you stuff but i can’t lol! you need to visit the patreon for it, if you are not a patron it unlocks after 3 days usually..
Either way American seemed to really like this image, i posed it here because i don’t really understand why lol. i have a friend who usually explains to me why when something is popular or not. i don’t understand how most people see things. my eyes are Obvi sharp so i see details but sometimes i don’t see the obvious thing so literally i need someone to walk me through “basic seeing” if i can call it that.
life besides is fine- i want to move to Canada. this corona business fucked up some plans and an exhibition i already had a deal for in July! i was about to sign with the gallery! i wanted to learn bow and arrow this summer and horse riding and pole dancing! nothing serious just like 10 lessons at each. Although i do want to learn violin- i played piano for 6 years as a kid and i always wanted a violin mostly because it’s mobile and i hate guitar. so thank you Corona for being a bitch- at least i didn’t loose my house and teeth.
if you want to bitch about how corona annoying you too you know where to find me! happy holidays!

HI! so what’s new? A LOT. A Company from Poland called “All In Games” asked me if i’m available to be an Art director for a small game they are creating. We discussed terms and i said YES but of course- Alice comes first. So i started working… at a second job! i’m so tired it’s ridicules. But i love it, i LOVE being an Art director, i love that i can create worlds and create experiences.
i always thought i’d be a classical painter with a studio and shit but you know what? it bores me. it’s boring for me to go to exhibitions and see mediocre paintings or at best such amazing paintings- but not in israel, no one here actually paints, it’s “taboo”. So, see amazing paintings that you stare at them for 10 minutes and move on. Games Last forever. Games are the future, being an Art director is really amazing. galleries die because they are boring AF, usually the art is crap and it’s overpriced.
But being an art director? i know how to lead a team and i know what i want- so there’s no real zigzags and “let’s explore” when i envision a world i understand how to communicate it- well, i hope i do. I also never shut up so i’m good at explaining shit. Either way what i did is i stole Dario and Norman from Alice to give us some designs and atmospheric images, we are creating a vertical slice for December. we needed really small stuff and they are friends so why not give them a few bucks! Dario and norman felchle
I can’t really say info about the project Or show you anything so instead i’ll post images from the finished comic. it’s really fun and hard to design a world but if you have a vision and you know when to tell people to shut up and that their idea is bad (which happens, deal with it) you’ll be ok. the idea is to LEAD not to boss around everyone around you, take the good but know when someone is stepping on your toes to tell them to back off. I had an altercation with one of the guys in the team who is NOT part of the art team. he started giving “me” ideas on how the game should look like etc…
dude, not only that is NOT your job, as an art director i get to listen but if your idea sucks, i need to tell you NO.
like the guy wanted an Arena that is a spider web? you know what’s the problem with that idea? a spiderweb is sticky.
Alice? we are working our butts off, Also started doing Oz stuff. i wish i could show off stuff! i can’t! LOL goddamit. I do can say that i worked with Roman on Alice’s 3d head and he did a good job on it. People remarked that her nose is odd (like not pointed up) and her eyes are still too big and her forhead is alien. All true but i also think that those traits make sense and give her that personality of Alice.
her forehead is actually anatomically correct, it’s just large. her eyes are suppose to be big and her nose shouldn’t be tilted upwards, she’s not swedish. i’m happy most people agree with me that she should have the long hair and that the general face is spot on, i just really want to see this face move and talk and whatever. if i compare This model next to the Madness vertical slice? wow, that’s just a different level.
Last Notes- Nuerva will now, hopefully, be published on “Smashwords” and the audiobook is done, Published on “findawayvoices” ANNDD the Comic is done!
i also published it on Smashwords and it’s FREE. but i think it will take them a moment to authorize everything for me to actually promote it. So audiobook, Comic, Book are done and i’ll need to figure out how the hell to promote them.
I’ll be writing a second book and i know how to start it, so wish me luck, Going to need it.
HI! i’m so tired! this month was hectic but i did manage to finish some projects. One of them of course is the Alice HD 2020. i hears some morons complain about how we should of done the maps and that the models look bad and that we fucked up the gameplay. Nope.
we are trying to upgrade Alice herself but honestly the game just won’t allow us to import her back into the game. it’s like it doesn’t like us! but we will figure it out eventually, maybe, hopefully. honestly this game Needs a redo. like my dream right now is that we’ll get a greenlight on Alice Asylum and then we’ll get somehow a deal to remake the original Alice. this can be so awesome.
don’t get me wrong, it’s not like my brain will stop thinking on how to mess and maximize this pack, it’s STILL ON. but it needs a total redo from scratch with a new engine. otherwise it will NEVER look good. as i understood the maps are not actual 3d models so they literally can’t be upgraded like a 3d model that you can extract and use.
Other things? i got a big, local publisher here asking me if i’m available for commission and i did 3 covers for “Old Man’s War by John Scalzi” i’m attaching crops, not the full image because i’m not doing the graphics and in books you need to keep spaces with “nothing” so the text will be readable.
i have never really painted in this style and i never got a chance to paint landscape! so it’s refreshing and i could apply all the stuff i learned from Marco Bucci’s courses, it really paid off! HA! Also i redesigned Lani Lenore’s Nevermor covers and created another cover for her “Needle Eye”
i told her i hate painting curls (which it 100% true) and that because she’s white she thinks curls are beautiful because all my life only white people told me my natural hair is beautiful and it’s not and if there was an injection to make me blonde i would- she didn’t laugh! i’m not racist goddamit lol. i’m just really pro wigs. if i could wear wigs all the time i would. it was so hard to paint the hair i had to merge in stock images, i just couldn’t figure it out but i like how it came out.
why do i do memes? first reason is because my brain works in Memes, like “Karen” “Chad” “Shaniqua” “Becky” “Cat that says no” all of these horrifying Memed characters, i can relate, i also don’t see a Karen as white, i see her as a personality, a man can be a Karen. i have met Gays who were Karens. I met women who are Chads, i have met white ladies who are shaniquas. we are ALL the cat that says no. All of us. Memes are Personalities, not color. Please insult each other equally. fyi “Boomers” are just Downers, not actually people who are 70.
Also it’s hella funny.
COMIC! i got a model to fit the last part, the “Leader” for those who read the book. so i’m merging him in the comic, i’ll finish it soon, this corona business put a hold on everything. i’m studying Anatomy, properly, for the first time in my life and it’s boring like hell BUT i started to apply what i’m learning and it’s really awesome. AUDIO BOOK is coming for Nuerva, i want to learn animation to make clips too. i’m going to get surgery on ly left arm on the 17th and it’s With general anesthesia and i want to get this over with already. you probably saw that i’m wearing a cast in all the videos, it hurts all the time. i wish that after this surgery it will stop hurting. Also i’m on a diet, i got to lose some weight. agh.
so i’m really swamped, really tired and i need a vacay. so i’m going to close Commissions for a while, i haven’t done that for YEARS. i’ll rest and play “outer worlds” more. Thanks for listening to my babble! I hope this corona thing didn’t screw you over, LOVE (:
HI! i’m going to pass on the Alice update this time because frankly i got Instagram for that and i don’t have stuff that i can share too much currently. So instead let’s talk about something that is on my mind and on my head for the last two months. this corona business really make me take a look on what i want to do. and there are personal stuff like i want to learn archery and i want to learn to dance like a hoe on a pole, ride a horse once, make a song! but i also-
want to make stuff, Physical stuff. Specifically i want to make two lines of stuff, i want to make a set of pendants with simple necklaces, about 4 designs. and Shirts which i think i’ll start from that … but i honestly don’t know where to start. perhaps i uploaded this already, i don’t remember.
I like prints. i don’t feel it’s me tho. so i’m thinking about a design based in material, like pearls/gold/ i donoo. but something else then a print. OH my hair is bugging the shit out of me, i’m a curly but i’m losing hair so my hair isn’t dense and pretty. it’s like gramnda curls, next month i’m chemically straightening it so here’s the BEFORE:
I’m painting a lot, i finished “Money” originally i wanted to paint Kylie Jenner as the model but i found out that i work better with my own characters. there’s something that works better with my wonky proportions then going fully on realistic.
I’m really happy with how she came out, i learned a lot from Marco Bucci, if anyone wants to take some courses from him- i’m SO FOR IT, i learned a lot from 2 courses, each cost me 30$. it’s really nothing. I’m planning to paint “Inflatables” next, Digi sketch:
and i finally understood my world when it comes to painting
finally. FINALLY i’m happy with these two. the pigs and Bears. Also a jewlery company, Marohh, approached me and i modeled stuff for them in exchange for the products,
I want to be actually paid once, Money, to model clothes for a catalog (not live or video, i can’t retouch that) also not too tight, too fat. OOHH also last but def not least i’m working on the Prelude comic for Nuerva, i also sold all the copies. and i’m looking for a model for the 3rd part. it’s built with 4 parts and for the 3rd part i need a guy that looks like a walking wall.
this is a cap from the 4th part. it’s not spoiling the actually book but Explaining WTF is happening in it- IN a way that is Hinted If you read the book so you’ll need to read it After you read the book. But if you read the comic first you’ll be basically “wtf” i want this to be only digital and to put it on Amazon but 2 friends already were like “are you kidding me? this must be printed” i donno. i’ll need to think about it but i got Lots of work to still put into it so i’ll think about it. parts 1,2 are done 4, is being made now and 3 needs that male model. when i’ll finish this comic i’ll start to work on my second book. i got the outline done, i just need to write it but i KNOW that this comic needs to be done first in order to write the second book. i don’t want plot holes…
I want this corona stuff to be over with already, i want to be able to go out and get drunk! i’m sending you a virtual alcoholic beverage, Le’haim!
Thanks for reading, i hope that this time isn’t very hard on you and i hope that everything is well. please take care of yourself and wear masks and wash your..well.. everything.
Hi! how’s the corona? are you going slightly mad? here everything is strange. on the one hand the government said that now people can meet but on the other hand people seem to think that there’s no more corona! it’s like the Joey Speaks french Meme but with Corona. these idiots will kill us all.
the latest art that i made took me almost a month and i’m taking a break from making those. usually this kind of art goes through 3 artists. a 3d artist, one that makes the back and another one for the characters. usually some parts are made in 3d and everything is merged… i did this alone but Norman helped me with the animals and Alice and Cheshire’s pose.
I never EVER could paint expressions like this, i’m so happy i took the course, it fixed some issued i had with drawing. the problem is that with my Degree they didn’t explain how things worked and told me basically “painting well is bad, it’s boring, make shit. shit is good, shit is wonderful. poop. poooppp. popopopopoooo.”
it helped me with sketching out ideas quickly and understanding where things go exactly. it’s not like i didn’t know or was a bad illustrator but i had issues that were never really resolved. even my mom didn’t have anything bad to say- that’s saying something! i’m hoping that when i’ll finish the anatomy course i’ll be able to draw people much easier directly from my head. I USE MODELS. i call one up S.he comes and i take photos of all the poses i need.
and i pose them, take pics, integrate it, paint over the images, etc. i hope that i’ll need that Less and i can improve on that. when i paint people from my head it’s still Not there. it doesn’t look right, i need help with that. above is the comic i’m working on! it’s a prelude of the actual book. small stories combined with one element. it will be only on digital tho. Oh and if i haven’t mentioned it, i sold all the physical copies of Nuerva and i’m not sure on how to promote it yet. i’ll figure that one out.
Our upgrade on AMA is continuing, we have some technical problems but we have good news, perhaps we found a way to upgrade Alice herself. Maybe- we have problems with the programs. i’ll let you know, Also she’ll be the Only model that will be upgraded, we don’t have time or need to update anything else.
I’m going bald. i’m taking the bald people’s pill now. it’s been like that for the last 4 months, i’m shedding hair like a dog. my left hand will probably need surgery to fix stuff there and i can’t seem to be able to ditch some pounds i’m struggling with. WTF i hate getting older. 34 isn’t fun. i saw on Thursday this 40 year old guy who looked… bad and he was referring to my cousin and I as “young kids” like, i know i look young, my cousin is 10 years younger than me, but like… am i suppose to look like him when i hit 40? wtf.
it reminded me- i had my eyebrows micro-bladed and now they look Always like i do them when i do my makeup but Very natural! i’m extremely happy with his work. i drove an hour and a half just to get to him. Israel- top to bottom is 4 hours, so comparing to the country- it’s a lot. that’s why i saw my cousins… they live at that city.
Besides i’m so over this corona thing but at least now i’m setting up dates and see friends and give them the goddamn book copy they ordered! I really wish you guys will like this comic. it’s an experiment and i think 60 pages. when i’ll finish it i’ll need testers so i’m counting on you.
Before anything i only got 2 physical copies of my book. if you want to buy a copy as a present or you thought about it, whatever. Buy it so i can wrap it and ship it and prance around and say i sold everything. i don’t think i’ll be printing any more anytime soon. so just write me.
for me, corona, personally it meant that i’m painting more, working out (in house) more and going slowly mad like Queen. like every time something annoying is happening because i’m locked up the song starts in my head “I’m Going Slightly Mhaaaaddd” anyway for Alice i worked on the latest poster and tried to help everyone to do stuff as American is working on the re-write of Denial. when i’ll get a goddamn story i can assign tasks to everyone and we can build it properly. although most of the art, i think is done for denial, but we will need storyboards and specific new things for the specific story. Fun.
Secondly me and Tim and Kyle helped with creating the AMA upgrade pack. there’s a new HUD, we found a way to create “Anti-aliasing” and “Field of depth” and we are currently working on upgrading ALL the textures, What i made texture-wise will be available but now it’s Everything, i didn’t upgrade everything, too much work for one person. Kyle just got 3 weeks off work so Maybe maybe he’ll be able to rework Alice’s model a bit. it’s just giving her a bit more soft edges, besides her i personally think there’s no point in reworking the models in the game, it does look good enough. so soon! i hope that by the 15th i’ll be able to launch it.
The rest will be MY Personal NEWS. i always wondered why people in their 30’s 40’s become “good artists” and why people before that are kinda… Meh. well, I think it’s because before this age, for most people, you don’t have a real opinion on the world. also you Or get to a point in life where you are kinda “fuck it” and go towards and do whatever you actually want, fuck the consequences. OR become a total wuss and always try to please others and never change. i’m the first option tho. I found my inner world that i want to paint in oils, also i finished the latest but i haven’t got a chance to take a proper pic so sorry for the quality.
I’m continuing with painting the next one! and i had two triangular small canvases that i wanted to paint/use. AANNDD i’m taking 2 courses by “🔗Marco Bucci” I’m So recommending him to everyone who wants to learn how to paint well. i’m learning so much about, well, everything. he’s teaching digital but i apply it in oils as well. and it’s like 30 bucks for a course.
I’m also taking an Anatomy course and i’m sketching new concepts and i’m learning on how to create more complicated (yes more complicated!! it’s never too complex!) compositions and ideas, and i really have to say this Marco, HELPED! there’s 9 you-tube videos you can see 🔗HERE that helped me a LOT!
I don’t remember if i did or not, but I made a new video, you can see it on 🔗youtube here or below if you are on site.
So again. going slightly mad. i want to go out of the house and stop working!! but i’m kinda digging the results LOL. i did start on God of war and i do see a LOT of TV. but i want to go out and get drunk with friends who don’t have babies. BTW the comic is on hold, i need models for the frames so i when i can, i’ll do it! and update you duh.
Thanks for reading this month’s mess! i really want to be rich so i can get my eyes lazered to a blue color. YUP it’s a real thing, talk next month!
