April 2019

UPDATES, so many updates. stuff have been going on, personal stuff, profession stuff and Some artistic blocks that needs resolving. Obviously i’ll start with Alice updates and some cool news.

1A. Alice.

omri artist, orit fux

I made some promotional stuff, it’s so cool we got talented people on board. i SWEAR i didn’t need to retouch anything with her body makeup, it was Flawless. I did however changed the bottom to a skirt and the top a bit. but i didn’t need to thin her out or change anything she did, it was kind of a relief. Usually i got to do a LOT.

sacrifice your queen, chess pieces, alice, shadow alice

IF you didn’t know “Sacrifice your queen” What is wrong with you? i have worked on it for 3 weeks, a fucking complex art piece. usually in a company 2-3 people work on this kind of thing. usually merging 3d assets into the poster and merging it with paint and stuff. well.. this almost killed me. i have an idea to create Alice with the Jabberwock, Riding him or having her “Face” him but in a more artistic abstract way… haven’t figured that one out yet but, you know, let it bubble.

norman felchle, alice, queen of hearts, jabberwocky, snark

norman felchle , mad hatter

Norman Felchle. Goddamit Norman! you make me look bad! i talked to American about having him on board and he said something in the lines that he was thinking about it. it’s kinda funny we were oddly on the same page. I think that Norman’s line of design is so ugly and pretty at the same time. He IS the design master behind the original characters From American Mcgee’s Alice. He should redesign/Design more characters in the new game. I loved Ken Wong’s vision for Madness returns but i think we can totally dial it down into something more dark and Western.

I also though that Norman’s version of the Queen (right top corner) is wonderful, he made a head, i tired to design the body… Nope. i couldn’t copy his style so i just made one from My personal take

alice asylum, alice 3, queen of hearts

I think His queen design is better and more fitting, he designed her and i colored her. I can’t show it yet, as American has to have first privilege. but i have to say that i think classical screaming queen is BEST. My idea for my Q. was that we will always see her from a far, she’ll talk to a servant softly behind the fan, hiding her mouth. and she’ll look beautiful but afterwards she can turn into a “monster” when you’ll actually see her face move, think of those parts not like porcelain, more like parts of robotic plates. it can be interesting to see a queen that looks like a twisted beautiful version of Alice.

cheshire cat, Plushy design, omri koresh

CAT. the problem with designing this guy as a plushy is that he doesn’t actually fit to BE a plush. his head is huge, his body is too small and thin and having a metal frame inside of him will make him so un… cuddly so what’s the point? this is the last version that American showed. He already went though more changes but he said something right, the factory needs to create a sample to see wtf will come out of him. Perhaps in ORANGE?

1B. Alice2, The GREAT news is that now i’m a full pledged employee for American, Asylum. up until now i was 50% but now i actually had to turn clients away, it’s ridicules, iv’e been looking for a steady job for the last 6 months and a moment after i signed with American for a full time… i got like 3 offers for a full time gig. wtf. where were you?

1C. Alice3, I pray. Well, i don’t pray as there’s no god but i.. wanna say… pretend to pray? for the lack of a better term. I’ll be able to nail the gig for an Art Director. American doesn’t have one in mind right now, Personally yes, Ken wong can come back and blow our minds again BUT i think i can pull it off- and not barely. I wish i can be actually considered for the job. i want asylum dark but not gore. Not bloody and childish, i want it DARK. I don’t know what or if that’s possible but it’s So far away, even if it’s possible, i’m just sharing with you guys my blah blah like i always do.

trains people, trains.

last but not least, i’m going to design some trains, logistics, maps, fast travel things for the game. i have no idea how large the game will be and of what scale… but this will be fun so make sure to keep your eyes opened by large metal things like in clockwork orange.

vampire bloodlines 2, malkavian

2. Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines 2. I’m a HUGE fan of the original game, i have made some fanart from the original game but i haven’t made much. i’m also a Lara fan but again, not painted her a lot. but i did make some fanart because the new game is Coming!!

Denis richards, vampire
wtf clan is this? bruah?
Nina Naurielle, Ventrue

Nina Narurielle did a makeup test for the Ventrue look (left). it’s pretty awesome, i painted on top of the image. I really wish that their new characters won’t look like they got stuck in 1992 in a dark episode of friends, drinking a pepsi and playing Atari listening to Vengaboys. I mean my childhood was the 90’s and the fashion was terrible with butt ugly makeup. Please make them a kardashian. give them actual taste.

3. Personal stuff. Lately like a half a year lately, i felt like i’m stuck. in every way. financially, finally after a drought of 6 months i feel so much better now that i got a proper job with American. so i know the bank won’t kill me anytime soon. But artistically, i couldn’t concentrate on my personal work. i’m working on a photography project, i photograph people and turn them into other people, specifically Celebs. it’s a play on identities as all the final outcomes of those people will be total failures and will not actually look like the celeb they try to imitate.

so i’m booking models, looking for specific people (not showing anything right now from the project) and i’m aiming to 10 sets of 3 images each. 3×10= 30 images. Also i HAVE finished sketching out my oil paintings digitally but i’m finding myself not wanting to touch the canvas, it’s stupid. i’m a good painter, i know how to work a brush and when i can get into it… literally a full day can go by and i will forget to eat, i NEVER forget to eat. My earlier boss knew, never ever make me wait for food, EVER.

talking about food- i gained a LOT of weight, 10KG, 22P, over the course of this year, i got a stupid injury in my left knee that pretty much left me not being able to do any kind of aerobics. BUT apparently i can swim, and i was a good swimmer as a kid! so i will go for it, i need to exercise, it keeps my brain balanced and i’m not a naturally thin person.

i’m also planning something i have been saving up for the longest time… this is going to sound so vapid but i don’t care. Hair transplant. No i’m not going bald, my hairline is actually very high… every single picture that i upload is retouched. that is NOT my hairline. i had some “modifications” in the past, so i’m not new to be under the knife… Not the lips actually. so i actually might do that first and i think i’ll need to wait for 2 months to go into a pool. i think it can be a good excuse to let the knees really rest.

so now i’m balancing out my diet, my bank account, trying to get to the bottom of the oddest reason why i can’t touch a canvas. i mean the first layer is there

but stop looking at me like that, i WILL paint you eventually. perhaps the stress from the last 6 months had left some kind of block i need to remove. dunno.

thanks you for reading my blog, i so appreciate it. i’m really excited for this new chapter and making the game as best as i can. hopefully i can cover a lot of the ground work before production. <3

March 2019

HI! i didn’t update the site for two months, i skipped a month actually because i wasn’t in a good place and i was Sick for almost three weeks. so not i’m back, focused and i want to blabble about stuff again! let’s start with 1. Alice, Duh.

I made a TON of dresses, i think some of them are not “solved” as in the styling but it’s funny. American started to talk about them in the crowd design discussion and i’m like “Hey! helooo, talk to me man, i know my outfits, heloooo” so after hearing the first one i just made this thing. I think the bargaining dress is Meh. i think Joey’s design should be in the Asylum world actually.i liked the two mods but he said they want Emotion Vials? so…. hm.

I also designed some of them, Alex did some more designs too. mine are kind of plain, i think his are more interesting. but the concept of emotions in vials and mods and power up dresses and whatever is just TOO MUCH. there should be a simpler way to create everything artistic and still keep it Working.

I tried working with another concept of weapons, Riffing off Alex’s idea of a morphing weapon but American said something true. it’s essentially not Whimsical enough to be a Wonderland themed thing. it’s too mature.

I did remind of talking to Norman Flechle. i remember when i was in High-school and i just drooled over these sketches. i love his designs, i just hope i won’t be left without a job! I also talked to American about Emilie Autumn, i think musically and/OR voice a character she’ll do a marvelous job. She’s a good actress! if you saw “the devil’s carnival: Hallelujah” you’d know. Go watch that S*! So hopefully Alice 3 will kick ass with Emilie and Fletchel.

I loved @kitsune.kid design, OMG her makeup was so good i didn’t need to retouch it- almost. i made the hands darker and i made the stitching on her neck a bit longer. but usually? WOW people’s makeup are S*.


2. I had a birthday this month, i’m actually going to celebrate this friday, this years theme will be that everything in the house will be (hopefully) Cyan and red. Why? well, i’m 33, same number twice. so my brain automatically went to the 3D colors AND that they are actually a set. and It was Purim this month! i went as Harley Quinn Boy somewhere and i scared the s* out of people. it’s so funny to walk around seeing people frightened faces. i’m considering actually wearing the Yes Sir bracelets all year long, it’s quite pretty. Oh to people who are not remembering that we suffered (Jews) Purim is the lamer version of Halloween where there’s no budget for anything, no candy and no houses.

Zehava

3. PERSONAL ART! i’m on my last sketch to Finalize (it will feature a girl with cakes), and then i’m finally starting to work in Oils. I HOPE this new series will execute well. so i’m going to attach here my new designs for my paintings. I decided to paint Only girls besides Mario/portraits. the Guys i think i’ll paint in another series, My men are much more sexual (duh) and are more pop- colorful, Commercial. so i’m separating the two.

Adding keywords because google is funny: Omri Koresh, alice 3, alice 3 asylum, alice 3 game, alice 3 projects, alice asylum, alice asylum patreon, alice asylum wallpaper, alice in wonderland american mcgee

Air
The Pigs
Blue Rabbits

I’m super excited to make these, because of some recent commissions i could so i bought the canvases, everything is in my studio, i barely have floor space now.

4. NUERVA. that f*ing book will be the end of me. i wrote to some agents, i need to write to MORE agents, i hope one will take me as a client. i can barely afford rent properly but i’ll pull this iffy out somehow. I had also an idea, my friend Aviv recorded her voice when she did some reading for me, so i’m going to start to create with her an Audio book. Perhaps i can create something proper with her, she HAS the professional equipment so why not! i know some musicians that i can barter for art and they’ll help me create some musical background thing. The art- me and i learned how to create effects on video so i CAN potentially create something that’s high-level. i have no idea for what this will be used but i want it made, although i think i’ll eventually won’t have a choice and self-publish.

Vampire the masquerade: bloodlines 2, lasombra
Vampire the masquerade: Bloodlines, Lasombra

5. Vampire Bloodlines 2 was announced. OMG. OMG. the first game was a masterpiece, although buggy and it had a LOT of problems- it was still a masterpiece. very much ahead of it’s time and with complex characters that you are afraid they’ll bite your head off. and i was talking to a my friend Nina that i wanted an Excuse to paint some of the VTM girls… Well! now i got it! LOL this is awesome. i wish i would of done art for the project, i LOVE that world.

Thank you for reading my life story this month. and to newcomers that signed up, HI!

February 2019! UPDATE.

HI! Some cool stuff happened and my stupid sense of humor… i guess it’s contagious?

  1. Most of you know that with the Alice design stuff i made a Onesie for the Rabbit goal for out Patron. well, the original rabbit that came from the first factory came out… Orange. So i laughed about it in some of the artworks…
yes i’m a troll.

American joked on his stream and said that (because i make Alice take selfies) i should make her Dabbing- because it’s the next horrible steps. AKA “Martin don’t give Omri ideas” And this Orange thing came out as an Emoji and people laughed their asses about it

it was even laughingly Cosplayed!

Now you probably wonder why i’m sharing so much about my “Humor”. the reason is that my mom for AGES is telling me that my sense of humor is poor and i’m as funny as a brick wall. so HA MOM! HA!

This is what i thought about a Mini-Goal for the Patreon thing. i think it’s cool, it’s a different image from the RARE one that i made for American for his birthday. That one will not be replicated unless it’s directly from me.

BTW some guy from the forum asked me to send him this image for print with a “Pretty please” and that he will only print it for himself and i told him “NO” of course. 1. It’s a commissioned piece 2. WTF man asking for free art? 3. Not cool. as a response he said i was “Generous” and (i think) blocked me. wtf man.

Some more art from this month:

So happy American liked this version (:
I think he can be a good companion on the water world/level I wish i could explore Wonderland randomly as well!
I think there should be a dress for each “Powerup” but i don’t know if this will be the powerup mechanics
We are working on new designs, but i really want an Ice wand shirt

2. i got some new art! NEW DOLLS! new sketches! i’m working on my new photography series- But i won’t show it just yet as it’s being built and conceptualized as i’m working. BUT i can show you the dolls!

Her name is Lily. I made a few black dolls, i don’t make a lot of dark girls because- mainly i can’t figure out how to make the paint stick and not get scratched. if i’ll figure that out… i could make tons of colors. Honestly i want to make blue dolls. The next one is Almost done but she doesn’t have a base yet, the machine got screwed /:

i never made two toned hair, i think i’ll make more of these, she doesn’t have a name yet. Only when they are done it hits me. i hope that i’ll be able to finish her on time (until the 8th) for the exhibition! I got another exhibition at the 12th.

3. MEN. i paint a lot of women, i’m good with painting women. Men? Nope. i just paint porn. I’m struggling to paint men in an interesting way, i’m (obviously *hair flip*) not attracted to women so what i find interesting in them is the clothes, hair, makeup. it allows me to play with designs, dress them up. I find women inviting, warm, interesting. Men i find like large eggplants- and i prefer them nude. I like my men stereotypical Masculine and my women delicate and refined. so when i sketch ideas for men it comes out bad like:

It’s just SO BAD. I wanted to capture the “Ebony fantasy” i think everyone has a fantasy to go black or albino or blue or whatever. i want it super-sexualized but not pornographic and not… well dumb like this is. This is my process. I usually make a few concepts before i’m doing anything, and with men i’m exceptionally bad. so i wanted to show you that not everything i do is good. everything takes practice, even studying anatomy took me forever and i’m still learning. I tried to make a “Tom of Finland” Tribute and it came out Meh

wtf man. it’s ALMOST 80’s which 1. isn’t the correct era 2. it’s not even Enough 80’s anyway. i’m still figuring out how to paint men in a very, obviously, GAY way. Keep it sexy but High-brow, Fine-art. something that isn’t just tits and balls.

I can paint women all day long but this is after i “Majored” in painting women. i understand how i see them so i can paint them. with men.. i’ll save you from the awful sketches but it will take some time until i’ll figure it out.

Thank you for reading my updates! if you got this far please spread the word about this blog. i love sharing my artistic process! and if you want to comment, just write me back directly to this email- the system is still down /:

January 2019! Happy new year!

HI! So some interesting stuff happened this month, i’m going to start with the odd and Alice stuff first.

Me and Alice
  1. probably some of you already know a guy on facebook asked if anyone knew who can reconstruct Alice for him- after 35 minutes we talked and i took her in. i fixed her up- the arm was broken, no blade… i repainted her, she came out looking great.

Then i started to think.. you know i knew about One other Alice that came to Israel and it got to a market place and they painted her horribly. when i was a teenager i only saw One statue so i thought it was HER, so i guessed there were two… until i posted the image above online. for now, there are four Alice statues in israel- One perfect. the other three:

Left to right, Marketplace, Found in a dumpster, one that was bought intact

The funny part is that one of my regular clients, for about a year now… apparently OWNS the right one. I didn’t know that, he didn’t know that i’m doing Alice: Asylum. he didn’t know i’m the artist behind a lot of Alice work, he actually got to me because i work also, sadly, as a graphic designer. so funny, stupid and funny.

2. Right now American is in Thailand i didn’t talk to him for about two weeks, i do a lot of art but i can’t show it because i need his approval. but i can show you a crop because i just LOVE this crop- It’s a mix of my work with Joey Zeng. She’s such a good painter, i want to smack her with a fish. i love bouncing ideas off of her.

3. This month was pretty dead work-wise so i took the opportunity to redo some sketches and add some. i’m working on my oil paintings and i even finished the last one! but i don’t have proper pictures just yet so a Phone camera will have to do. i’ll take some professional photos later on when i’ll have more paintings.

“dreaming”

Now, new sketches!

Soft
Unicorns – untitled
Not Sabrina
Mario and Peach (WIP)

these are some of the art i want to make, In oils! i wanted to layout the designs and colors and concepts to do a proper “set” in that way i can at least show my paintings and perhaps talk to a gallery about an exhibition.

SKETCH PILE

4. I got a lot of old sketches, i’ll try to sell these this month i think. i won’t be selling them framed, i’ll sell them tubed and i need to photograph/scan each and price them, a lot of work but hopefully it will be worth it. i’ll try to talk to some galleries, perhaps there’s one that would like to sell them on site.

5. The black city of Nuerva – so i tried looking for a publisher, i found that i NEED an agent. I can’t afford an agent, i make something close to minimum wage monthly. I do have a job interview on Sunday, if i’ll get that job i’ll be able to afford a lot of stuff- an agent with it. “serious” companies only look at what agents give them to review, not individuals. Heavy metal didn’t write back but their editor was super nice to me, i just hope that this book will happen with a publishing company, it’s a good way to brand myself.

Besides that i think everything is pretty normal, me the hubby and two cats are freezing in this winter which is something that i love because i ca get fat and no one notices, i just hope that summer will never come. just remember if you want to write back to me, write me directly to this email, right now the comments on the site are disabled. i got problems with it /:

December 2018 update!

HI! not a lot has happened this month, i was swamped with boring design work so i got a bit of money but not a lot of art. But still cool stuff is happening!

  1. Alice

I designed some shirts, Leggings, I’m working with Jennifer D’aww on the design work and i made some cool stuff in the store. hopefully ALL of my older work will be available to purchase on Mysterious. I told American that he should use the art for stuff, i mean why not! i already made it. At least someone will gain some money out of it!

2. I got the Original Alice statue, it’s almost at my height. A guy on facebook wrote that he got the statue and it’s broken. He asked friends who do they know can fix it. 35 minutes later we set a date for him to deliver her to me.

So Yup i printed the blade, it broke off. The arm broke but it’s Glueable- the rest needs paint fixing and re-coloring. Hopefully next month i’ll get a photo shoot with her and the client will be happy with the outcome!

3. A good friend of mine, Kc Mussman usually visits in December and we usually have some kind of shoot together:

She didn’t have time to do Art, she’s an artist herself, she was a finalist at FaceOff.

She’s one of the best makeup artists that i know! Last time we Shot Topaz Arbell, She’s one of my regular models.

Like a Barbarella Style… alien?

i’m working on my next series and Again she came to model for me! so this is a recent photo of us being stupid.

KC wanted me to remake her like Ms.Terious Cosplay‘s Concept of Alice Addams, We shot it but i didn’t get the chance to edit it properly. But i do hope that the original cosplayer will appreciate the tribute, it’s a cool concept and KC’s a good friend and we like to have fun. She LOVED this concept.

 

3. LOVED this movie. I wrote about it:

“Just saw this movie yesterday. I Highly recommend watching it.

It’s not about a porn star, or sex. It’s about scars, traumas and how they define us.

Jonathan is described as a tool of society and how he’s being manipulated all through out his life and in his career while trying to take back control. His personal life, his relationships with his parents. His loneliness, his surprising innocence and his lovely persona.

Perhaps the movie spotlights a porn star but it’s not the actual story, his life is far more complex and intriguing than you’d imagine. it’s not a journey, it’s a tunnel vision look on how things spin out of control and how -we- as people treat celebs or people we admire, we forget they are just as human as we are.

GO SEE IT.
“Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life””

 

4. NUERVA. I’m still looking for a publisher But i think i don’t have a choice and i’ll have to find an agent for my book to take off. But have i told you a stupid dream that i had?

I thought about the next book, i had this idea floating in my mind and i thought about a specific scene and wrote the baseline down and put it aside. Eventually i dreamed something similar to that scene, it was odd and extremely out of context.

In the dream i’m sitting in front of a woman called Amanda, She said i had to get her an some sort of object- which i didn’t understand what she’s talking about, it’s like i fell in the middle of a conversation that she had with someone else. and she’s saying that i needed to get her something, it was Like money but an object. I asked her “What will you do when you’ll get it?” And then she answered! “Get out of the Island of NOVIGA” So i woke up and i’m like WTF? have i called the city the wrong name this whole time?

Is it NOVIGA or NUERVA?

So i’m actually considering changing the name! American said that it’s hard to say, I think Noviga is easier… Hm.

Thanks for reading! I hope you found this month interesting! <3

October 2018 update!

HI! There’s some stuff to cover so let’s start!

  1. I made two new Alice posters and it was kinda hard, it was more painted than i usually make, the project is really amazing and i think i’ll be focusing on Weapons. I suck at weapons But i want to try and learn to not suck at them. I suck at creating flowey movement too btw. If you noticed my work is usually dramatic and static, i’m not one of those artists that creates movement and characters that cool Anime/Action stuff.

Off With Her Head, american mcgee, alice, wonderland

I painted the shit out of these tentacles and they kinda look real! yea i used pictures of real tentacles underneath but it’s just for general shape and light. American said that he doesn’t know if this queen will get into the game but i just felt it’s correct to create her like this specifically with the hatter/queen/peeled Alice face like in the original game.

Alice: Asylum poster, for American Mcgee by Omri Koresh

I prefer the rabbit light gray on dark gray, i don’t like the red! sorry, not painting that in. the characters are inspired by the characters in the games/world. i copied attributes not the actual characters so it won’t look too literal. I like how it came out.

2. Some new paintings, i don’t think i updated these yet:

they are kinda small, 45*45 cm. I’m trying to paint that large painting i showed you last month, i’m only at my first layer. today i’m suppose to do the next one! so yay second layer! I’m kind of loosing it when it comes to painting in oils, i got maybe a day and a half in a whole week to paint. Things keep getting in the way! i just hope i could make enough paintings to pouch galleries.

3. IMI I had this idea for a new photography series that was bubbling in my head for a year and a half now. I M I, Which is a series of, naturally, portraits that explores feminine beauty, standards and perception. i usually create a sketch with my In-house model, Shelly. The bitch is so pretty, i can photograph her all day.

you probably know this but i create the same frame over and over again. This will have about 20 images in total. I already photographed the first model, I might show process or something but i don’t want to show the final outcome until i’ll be finished.

4. Pirate jam! Pirate jam is a concept by American Mcgee that is about having fun like a stupid pirate and to develop games! he just opened the list to participate in 2019 and of course i wrote him i’m in! It’s In April and i hope i’ll be able to afford the trip but it’s a once in a lifetime experience and i’m not letting that slip through my fingers! i’m looking for a cool picture to show you but they all look like nerds that need a shower. so I’m putting a wallpaper of Jeanette Voerman From Vampire Bloodlines. Cosplayed by Nina Naurielle and Photographed by PSK.Photo

you can save it directly to your computer, this is high res (:

5. Cool news for GeckoRouge (I sell Cross stitch packages with them) They are nominated to win something in Britain in some cool contest at British Craft Awards, I gathered it’s a big thing! I hope they’ll win! My latest design for them is actually a Real Alice.

So perhaps next month i could tell you if they won or not!

This is it for now, Make sure to comment back to this email

OR Go HERE to write a comment using your facebook account.

Update! too many topics so i’ll try to be short.

update,

Update: 3d printer!

hey! so stuff is happening! i finally got my 3d printer, it’s so cool! Apparently when you get a 3d printer the first thing that you do is actually print out things FOR the printer. Like an arm to hold the printing material (that blue thing).

corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton

So tomorrow OR today i’ll be printing my dummy for the dresses hopefully it won’t mean i’ll have to re-sew the whole thing! I still hope i’ll get at least 2 dolls for the exhibition in march! i’ll update you of course.

Update: Stuff i painted this week

corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton, Sahar Tabar

As i wrote you, my photographer friend, Grace Almera took these amazing pictures of women drinking coffee and i really loved them.  After seeing the series, I decided to paint one of the frames, but i added cats and changed the outfit and design a bit. I wanted to capture the concept of “what a girl wants” which is a lot of times just some quiet and cute stuff on the way. The comparison on top- because it came out really good!

Also for next week i’ll be publishing my own version of Corpse bride.

corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton, Sahar Tabar

I told you earlier of who i based the face on. It’s this Iranian girl, “Sahar Tabar” who supposedly had a lot of plastic surgery on her face to look like a skeletal Angelina Jolie. After i examined her face and pictures i figured out, it’s all fake. this is her real face:

corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton, Sahar Tabar

Yes, she did get a nosejob, lips done and cheek implants. But she’s not skinny/skeletal and in most pictures she has a bucket of makeup on her face. All of the pictures are heavily edited and photoshopped- pretty well i might add!

Anyway! corpse bride, Yea i loved the way it came out, i wanted to make the arms realistic but, it just didn’t work so i kept it semi-realistic and i tried to capture her in my own way.

Update: Cookies packaging

Last year i told you guys that i worked for a private client for some cookie packaging, well now they are finally going to get printed out and sold in China! It’s a Russian company and the brand is called “8 bears“. I’m creating some new designs for them, i’ll show it here

corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton corpse bride, update, grace almera, photography, painting, tim burton

It’s super cute and i still have to finalize these images. I’m suppose to get a sample to eat this month, my client is coming for a visit in israel. This is so exciting, think like- people in CHINA will eat my artwork LOL

I’m the SOLE designer, art, painting, logos, everything. I dictated how this product will look like and the company pretty much let me go for it. At the beginning they thought like to create a flat background and a traditional packaging but i pushed to full blown paintings. I told them that THEIR audience WANTS ART so I made a sample and they put the idea in  a maybe pile and they showed it to people on their end- i won (:

I think there are about 10 different tastes, i’ll be able to create wallpapers if you guys will want to use one for your own computers.

Last Update: Got American‘s first assignment, I can’t share it just yet.

 

Thanks for reading my weekly update! believe it or not i got even more LOL so much stuff is going on.

We are at 157 Subs currently, if you like my work, tell a friend about my little kingdom.

Mobile Games + Paintings! ART ART!

mobile games,

Before anything- Should i do a Christmas themed portrait? 

….i usually don’t do anything that’s holiday-like.

Mobile Games!

Hey! recently i told you that there’s this guy (ORI) that started talking to me about creating mobile games. well, it’s happening. i can’t give you any details just yet, but i CAN share the first concepts of our main character. It’s a penguin/post-office guy. I’m still not sure on his character- if he’s suppose to be Cute or Grumpy.

I want him memorable, don’t know what to do yet but this is exciting. Ori (The mobile game guy) is a really good programmer and you know me- a total workaholic and i know my stuff. So- This will turn out cool. I love mobile games, personally i’m addicted to Pet Rescue saga. I created some mobile games in the past in companies but in this case me and Ori are partners, so this will be created artistically 100% by me, so it’s exciting.

A bit different…

I’m still designing and painting digital sketches, but i had an idea lately, i thought of maybe taking old commercials/ads and re-create them. But sleazy or just plain disturbing like- “GOT MILK?”

i usually paint girls but i wanted to paint a guy for once, and personally- This is my taste, give me a viking!! i don’t know if i’ll release him on my FB page, he might be too different from the girls. What would you do?

I want to do a “Nuka Cola” ad and a GTA one. Don’t know if i’ll paint it in oils or not but- let’s just keep the creativity rolling.

Also- not finished but almost:

I wanted her to be more amorphous with less definition in the background and shirt, i wanted her to look like she’s swimming in a mesh of green. I’m still closing in the concept for this series, i don’t know how many portraits will eventually hit the canvas but i’m not worried.

Lastly- BREAKING NEWS!

I’m going to get my own store here on the site!

so i’m going to show off my dolls and all the stuff i make for sale. but to be clear- I’m not asking you to buy anything! i’m just so happy about it! also the site will go through an upgrade and also the newsletter listing was upgraded finally. So you might be getting this email properly- finally!

Thank you for reading! write back to me directly to this email OR ON SITE HERE

Patreon, Alice 3 Pitch, I’m IN! OMG.

Patreon, Alice: Asylum

Patreon is a platform for, well, getting money from people to create ongoing projects. American McGee asked me if i’d like to be the third artist on Alice 3 (Alice: asylum) for the pitch. Click here to get there and support him

DUHH i said YES! I jumped up and down like an idiot. Also you already KNOW that i’m going to create a lot of Alice fanart as the designs and art will unravel. So why not just make it official? it’s good for him and good for me as i can get the correct story from the horse’s mouth. I just hope that Patreon will work.

Below a new concept i’m working on. I want to merge the family’s screaming heads around Alice.

I loved “Alice: madness returns” but personally i found it too cute, too colorful and not dark enough. Story-wise pretty much perfect, but the overall look was too cheerful for me. The original classic “American mcgee’s Alice” pretty much changed my whole perception of gaming and art. It was Beautiful but still Ugly enough so it will look twisted and dark and WESTERN. My main problem with Madness is that it’s too eastern.

Color palettes and Simplicity as it come in the general designs of the buildings etc. It was too far away for me from the original London Vibe.

I HOPE my style will impact the direction the third game Can go to as I don’t believe Mcgee will take me for a Full job for the project. But i wish so bad that he’ll be able to hire me with Patron Money and i REALLY wish i could be part of the full game if Ea games would accept the concept and create a third installment.

I found this girl (Instagram link)

I looked carefully at her images- it’s all heavily edited, she’s just using makeup really well. But she really inspired me to paint Corpse Bride

She looks to me like the real version of Emily. And my friend Grace  Inspired me to paint one of her images too

Isn’t this frame just beautiful? of course there will be changes but i loved it.

I also made this week something i’ll publish next week, but you can see it first here.

sue me, i love rats. You know that feeling that you look at something beautiful and for a moment you are speechless? that’s what i wanted to paint, like taking off the headpiece to look at something. The rats for me are representatives of the people around her, with her, around her, everyone “full of air”.

Thank you so much for reading my weekly blog, I just changed in my site my delivery system. Please write me if you are getting this email weird or something is off. Thanks!

Alice: Asylum and Personal projects!

Alice: Asylum

HEY! American is extremely busy with trying to pick up Alice 3 from EA and i thought you know-

i want to help out. I really want this game and i CAN help. I already helped with “Alice Wake Up” image, so i thought i’d make another one- and made up a logo.

alice: asylum

I don’t know how people will react to it, because mainly, i just uploaded it to FB. Today was a slow day, got so much to do i can’t find time even to myself. But with that said, it’s really all good! BTW to paint this image i had to really paint the Liddle family first and then do the frame and flames. So i still got the image itself, black and white, i can actually print it and frame it like it’s a real antique family photo LOL.

Also if you noticed i upgraded “Alice 2014” face in one of my wallpapers

alice: asylum

and after i saw what i did, I had a hunch people won’t love her, and i was right!

I don’t like the original and i don’t like the revamp one. both for me are a no go, but people still seem to like her because, well, ALICE. perhaps i’ll delete it from the portfolio, but the important thing is that she kept people talking!

Obsessions

alice: asylum

it’s still not done. i need to cover the pictures of the plastic bees. I thought of making a girl with flowers without making it too cliche. this is the sketch i’m on right now.

I actually painted her because i thought she’s randomly cool, no special reason.

and lastly for today… DRUMROLL… i finished

Loving Him, 2017

alice: asylum

I think i dig it when you can see the canvas on the wall itself. what do you think?

Until next Saturday, perhaps i’ll have some news of another project by then (i’m in talks).
