July- too much of Me, Nuerva Comic and Paintings (:

omri koresh, painting, author, artist, omrikoreshart

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:

Stupid face, hate this fucking hair. thank you.

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.

Money 2020

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,

marohh jewlery
marohh jewlery
marohh jewlery. I love these tits.

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.

Lana, the black city of Nuerva, Omri koresh

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.

I’m working on the comic i wanted to make for Nuerva, it’s a small story that doesn’t fit into a format of a Book. it’s a prelude basically that goes before the big book. underneath is a sample.

Nuerva comic, graphic novel

And lastly i’m working with a guy called Tim Massing and we are working on the upgrade of American Mcgee’s Alice. we found a way to upgrade ALL the textures, not just the ones that i made. Also we found a way to place more models and with the help of a friend, Kyle Ross we upgraded the HUD. BUT i’ll show stuff and make a new video and stuff when we Finish this upgrade. my plan is that at the end of this month we will finish it and upload it for everyone to use and let this bitch rest. there are stuff i’d love to change but it’s literally unchangeable.

So yup. going slightly mad but with all of this spare time i can do a lot of stuff i wanted.

Kill me.

Nuerva Preorder and Aghgghh

HI! Do you remember in 2018 i tried to publish my art-book? well, it’s finally Coming and i couldn’t be happier! the reason it failed the first time is because the price was too high and also- you guys know i’m not Viral or Famous. i’m so deeply Jelly of those artists that people just know their work and they sell a lot and paint all day long, i wish i was like that but it’s honestly Tons of luck. Also it’s a matter of your location, I truly believe that a Canadian artist will have more Luck then an israeli one just because of better art-schools etc. Not bitching! just a thought that i had, this makes me even more grateful of you and everyone that is supporting mentally and financially. so really thank you! NOW about the book. this month is all about that book and plans!

omri koresh’s Nuerva Fae Attack

You can preorder it on my site

It will help with the amount of printings as it’s a limited run. the money will go towards the Printing and If there will be any extra it will go towards an Audiobook. i talked to a girl with a Wonderful voice, it’s a bit raspy and it’s beautiful on Fiverr and i think she can do a good job! the cost isn’t very high but no matter how many preorders i will get- it won’t cover the cost, i will need to pay her myself, it will only help at the most. which is fine!

omri koresh’s Nuerva omrikoresh.com raven glory mother

OH! i have to tell you how i got to that printing place. so there’s this Guy Yehuda Dvir he has 5.3MILLION followers on instagram right? right? an insane amount. so i thought, well, he’s israeli. i can write him an email. i don’t mind getting no response or a no, i’ll ask him like WTF an i doing with my life and if he has any tips on this book process. he told me to self-publish and hooked me up with the place He is printing his comics. he took the time to look at the art and landing page and everything! he’s amazing! and apparently the place is 20 minutes drive FROM MY HOUSE.

Omri Koresh’s Nuerva omrikoresh.com

So this whole thing, this whole mess that i went through could of been resolved if that place would of been there at 2018. but the good part is that since 2018 i learned In-design which is a very annoying program but once you get the hang of it, it’s fine. so i saved a ton of money on creating the layout for the book- which is an awesome thing as it means lower prices.

I objectify everyone equally.

Now i’m covered when it comes to preorders but if you are a fan, please order one… the next print might be only next year- if there will be any demand for it. i might run out of copies to sell. Also now it’s with a discount but later on… Nope.

OH! remember the comic? so people online liked it. i’m going to continue it, it’s 3.5 short stories that basically merge into one. it’s going to be fun. I was so scared of making a comic like… i never made one. also when i tried… wow it was bad. so when i sat down to make the frames and writing the story.. it only took me 3 hours (1.5 story 1.5 framing) it was ridicules, i’m like… why is this taking me less time than i imagined? i felt guilt.

boobs are hard to draw

but i’ll do it, i will need to “finish” the whole thing and then release it one page at a time. i hope it will be interesting enough to see it like that, no clue if it will but- it’s for fun.

Also… i was always planning to write another book. i have the beginning, i have some specific ideas on what i want to incorporate but i didn’t write the book… because i never released the first one. so now, after the 20’th i can take another adventure and start writing my ass off, it will take pretty much forever but, that’s part of creating. i’m down with that.

omrikoresh.com Omri koresh’s Nuerva Amanda

I have a friend who will take pictures of the product and myself Professionally- for free. and i have the amazing writer Lani Lenore who will help me set up the PDF and Stuff for the book! I don’t know how the hell one promotes a book online but i’ll figure it out. Those… Audiobook… i think i’m covered for now. i’ll need to think- even if i want- to create a brand out of it… don’t know. Don’t care. Get this art piece out already!

For other news…. looking for a gallery for IMI (photography) Painting in oils… a lot. started swimming to lose the fatness, ALICE ALICE ALICE NDS SORRY. Waiting for American to come back already. Trying my luck with creating Video content. the Project in Barcelona is active BTW, so it’s a lot of discussion and design work- still. so a LOT of junk is on my plate and i want cake but i’m on a diet- eat one for me and tell me how savory is it.

I love you All for supporting, even if you won’t buy a copy it’s fine, your soul is going to hell anyway (:

Kidding!

Or am i? MUAHAHHAHAA

Happy Christmas! Nuerva, Art and Alice

HI! so Happy holidays! Hannuka, Christmas, Satanic rituals whatever floats your boat. it’s going to be a new year in a few days and honestly it’s a nice number, 2020, like my eyesight- after the lazer.

  1. Some cool stuff with Nuerva, i’m working on a 6 page comic, i was told to put more pages but i think 6 pages to begin with it’s totally enough. i got the first 4 pages down! lemmi show you.

i have two more pages to create, i might go back to these frames and balance something out later on or change but i think they are consistent enough. are they though? do any frames look odd to you?

i decided that the correct style for me is realistic with touches of paint. i hope that when i’ll published the finished product with text and everything people will love it enough to share it without me begging! NOT KIDDING. it needs to be interesting enough to do that. but i think i might do more even if it will flop, it’s a cool exercise. Second thing, so i got this listing for Agents to go to with the book proposal, as i understood it takes YEARS. i need to understand how to write a proposal and then to submit it to as many agents that i can… i’m terrible with that but i so so hope that i’ll manage to pull this off.

2. I want to make video content but OF WHAT? got an idea for me? i’m good with shading people but doing it funny and i’m good with criticism. the problem as i see it- i’m not interesting, my art is. I need to be interesting because that’s how i can build a proper youtube channel/ a bigger following so when i will go to agents i will have people to “sell” to. although i’m fucking 34 in a minute i still have to compete with 21 year olds meh. tell me what you’d like to see!

WIP!

3. i had a great photoshoot with a singer/actress Ruth Almog, the image above isn’t done but i thought why not merge photography into the oil project thing. i can see this being sold as prints, something more commercial. Also it’s a great way for me to meet people and other talented people that i love.

4. Alice. So American got his vision finally. so we are wrapping the Hatter’s domain and doubling back to Denial to revamp it. Which frankly, it’s going to be awesome, i thought from the beginning that Denial is the more interesting realms and shock and Slumber feel that they can be something else. no clue on what will happen to them. Also working on a single poster at this time so i can’t show it, sorry. Hopefully next post you’ll see the final version!

5. OHH I got a new tattoo, it’s the Golden Ratio. it’s a bit of a shitty image but i think it’s enough to show it off. i’m really happy with it!

These are all the updates for now! thank you for reading and again, write me if you have an idea on what to do in a video!

Israel and Got the last Quotas, Calculations are Done, Nuerva is coming on Schedule!

NOW! amazing updates on the book. So, after calculations and everything, the whole chabang, it’s- not cheap. But it’s done. I won’t write publicly how much it costs to produce but let’s say that after all, i won’t be swimming in dollar bills any time soon. As i wrote you, AdMagic are doing the creation of the book, (suggested by American McGee BTW) and ShipBob are doing the Shipping.

israel, nuerva, omri koresh, painting, orgy, art, digital art, painter, amazing, art book

I decided Nuerva must have a promotional Party (correct term?) a book launch, and the books are printed in China actually so they’ll be shipping directly to Israel to my place.

Israelis will have a different price then the rest of the world.

I don’t have answers exactly how much because i still need to talk to people in Costumes, it’s a bitch here.

Usa people will probably have free shipping! so that’s cool (:

OK! after talking to some of you- Rewards, for now:

  • 1$ Thanks, Digital Sketch
  • 10$ wallpapers OR Unseen Sketches
  • 20$ PDF sketches (+addon option?)
  • 35$ Wallpapers AND unseen sketches AND PDF + 1 more art
  • 55$ PDF book
  • 65$ Printed Book
  • 90$ (will probably change) Printed Book + Israel EVENT
  • 100$ Signed Book From Israel (25 Slots) + shipping
  • 120$ 2 printed books
  • 4,500$ Patron, Inner painting of book + poster

So these are it for now.

I’m still rendering some of the final art for the campaign video (image as reference for UNFINISHED) but Tomorrow you’ll get to see a new video of About the book. You don’t need to sign up to this listing again! i had people sign up multiple times. It really is enough once.

israel, nuerva, omri koresh, painting, orgy, art, digital art, painter, amazing, art book

I’m still confused about Indiegogo’s platform, it’s odd. Also i still have to do things at my bank and do things for the campaign like Mockups and stuff but it’s really, everything is one time. I’m just SO WORRIED that you know, it’s not going to happen. I need 500 people to make this happen, BTW after the actual launch, there won’t be a place to buy the book, THIS IS IT.

So remember you can Comment back directly to this email OR ON SITE HERE (using your facebook!)

we are at the 08/10 Week and at 192 Subs! <3

Tell me what you’d change!

Thank for reading! You can write me back directly to this email Or on site here

From what country are you? care to tell me?

BEFORE ANYTHING

Could you do me a favor and tell me from what country you are from?

HEY! OK good news, i finally found a fulfillment company that i liked with good prices.

I’m going to use ShipBob  I keep remembering their name like “SpongeBob” but instead of cleaning it’s about mail. They have a great Back-end program that will let me insert information and also track my goods! Admagic will be printing the book, a US based company so if you an American Shipping will be the cheapest. Indiegogo is the platform!

Tomorrow i’ll shoot my main video for the actual campaign, so wish me luck!

Some of you i know your country origin but some i don’t. I’ll write you individually in April anyway but i’d still like to know!

So! i really hope you saw my mum’s image/video, if you didn’t you can watch her HERE Or On site below.

She was the one that supported me throughout the years, the one that bought me paint & canvas. Everything she could afford. Basically she acted like a single parent as my father didn’t really help her financially, no alimony when i was little but when i turned 13 he started paying a small “fee”.

Next week’s images:

 

Amanda.

Running Out of the city

I hope you like my newsletter, we are at week 5/10

I really want my book to launch successfully, i hope that by the 15th of march i’ll be able to ask you about Goals stuff in the campaign.

You can write me back directly to this email OR ON SITE HERE

Animations, story and new art

Hey! so i’m going to do this one short. If you notice this isn’t Saturday. We are at week 4/10 and i only now finally finished the cover + book spine.

nuerva, book cover, omri koresh, digital art, painting

took me a few days to get the gold right and the face. But i’m super happy with the outcome. I’ll create the back later on. I made a small animation with cool narration from my friend Aviv Gavra. She’s a british singer and has a deep blues voice. She recorded herself in a minute on her phone, she just nailed it. Watch it here or embedded ON SITE

Did you like the video? give me your opinions, tell me what you think about this campaign. 

There will be four more, Let me show you 2 images that will have it.

nuerva, book cover, omri koresh, digital art, painting

She is the mother of the protagonist, It’s also my literal mom. I painted her! But the main difference is that he.she is reminiscence her.his mom because she actually died in the story. (Mine is Alive and kicking!) I’ll write about the scene later on. Second imagenuerva, book cover, omri koresh, digital art, painting

after being seduced. Waking up finding the main woman in the story smoking while leaning on a pillar of crystals. I think this might be one of the posters i want for this book- But censored. this is the full Butt Image.

I’m getting in contact with Amazon about delivery stuff and Amazon UK is giving me trouble. I think i might go with the more expensive delivery “blackbox” they are the creators of Cards Against Humanity, which is the best game. Ever. I prefer to get things DONE instead of being yelled at by amazon.

Thanks for reading! this is week 4/10 you can comment back directly to this email OR On Site here

how’s it going? Got updates and personal experiences.

how,

I’m going to create a list specifically for people who want to know when the book is launched. (April) So i’m adding you to the list.

Promotion

hey! i’m trying to create interesting ideas to promote the book, next week i’ll have a simple animation to try out. My hubby will do some narration as he has a soft voice. I really wish to get some exposure for this project. This is the image for the animation:

how, omri koresh. nuerva, art, book, painting, digital art

Also it’s been decided, I’m going to use Indiegogo for the campaign.

Kickstarter only work for people who are on their specific list, which is the same list as Amazon. I’m still hopeful that i’ll manage to pass the threshold for minimum of 500 books. I think it will be around 12k of a campaign /: that’s a lot.

how, omri koresh. nuerva, art, book, painting, digital art

Personal experience in writing

I wanted to share with you my experience as a writer this week. It’s not something that came to me very naturally, I talk and tell stories about my life etc, but never thought that i could write a book!

I told you last week, my friend Amit Bobrov, sat with me and literally gave me lessons in writing. He said that there are techniques, like giving your main characters a list of attributes and things i didn’t know about. At the beginning i was, not scared but embarrassed. I know it doesn’t make sense but being embarrassed that i don’t know how to do something or to do it well, i think it’s universal. But you know, i worked on it for a few years. It went through another literary editor after Amit, Tom Berco. She was great, she understood What i needed to push scenes and adding more volume to the characters. It’s like, i almost finished the book but then she told me like “wtf man, i know nothing of your narrator” I had this tendency not to write how i imagine.

how, omri koresh. nuerva, art, book, painting, digital art

So i had that dream i told you last week, i wrote it at 4am really fast, i wrote from that like 10 pages. Amit taught me and we turned it into a book and then, i started my BFA. So for 5 years i didn’t touch it after i got my degree I added two more parts to the story and took writing lessons from Amit. now i’m pretty happy with it, it’s not perfect but i’m cool with it. Even if people will tell me it’s shit i’m totally fine with it. I know this is my story and it’s all cool.

We are at week, 3/10 and if you want to unsubscribe please write me directly. I just now saw that there’s a technical problem with it, i’ll have to do it manually.

Thanks for reading, if you got a clue on how to promote this book, write me!

 

How did my book,”Nuerva” Began? I’ll tell you!

how,

First, I got an important question for you

Would you pay Double for shipment if you’d knew 100% that there won’t be any troubles with it? Please write me an answer, this is important!

I got an option to use Amazon but i know from experience that they don’t ship All over the world. Like for Israel and some parts of the world like Russia. The guys from “Cards against humanity” created a company but they cost TWICE as much, but i kinda trust them More. Would you pay 9 dollars instead of 5 for US shipping for example?

how, Nuerva, omri koresh, painting, digital

(Censored version will be on FB, this is the full one!)

NOW for today’s topic, How this book happened + weekly art.

The dream:

When i was 24 or 23, i had this Really long dream, ridiculously long. I was at some kind of park, just sitting there with a book, don’t know which one but i was really focused on it. There was someone there saying there’s some sort of Killer out there, something very strange. Screams came from a far and i was taken suddenly to a slave ship. You know that there’s a lot of weird unexplained things in dreams? so yea it was like that, like strange cut-scenes.

So this “killer” was a slave trader, i stood in a line with all of them, shackled. The captain just sat on a big chair on the deck, i eyed him and he took me as a personal slave. We got to a city, a Black circular roof above it, inside a pier with brown docks and small hotels/restaurants/pubs. Everything almost in total darkness with tiny orange lights.

Taken to his apartment, I saw it was odd like the outside, it was dark, creepy, everything was black, after a while i met a cleaning lady who helped me escape. I met a man with a metallic melted smiley mask on his face. I met a woman named Amanda who was some sort of a trap for people who tried to escape.

how, Nuerva, omri koresh, painting, digital

(Who would you rather? Don’t really care about the outcome, just trying to make some noise online)

I ran on the main street of the city, i saw that on it’s edge there was sunlight, i ran towards it. I saw a bridge, three kids were running with me to get the hell out of there. There were soldiers standing at the edge of the bridge, they shot those kids down and when they were about to shoot me, i woke up. I honestly don’t know IF they shot me, i think i woke up because i was so stressed out, not because of the gun.

what i did

It really is MUCH LONGER than this, this is just the tip of the iceberg. Somewhere in the middle of this dream I realized that i was dreaming but i was so fascinated by the story i just decided to ignore that. I woke up at like 4am got to my computer, wrote down EVERYTHING i could think of, kinda came out stupid for not sketching out the schematics of the place and buildings so i don’t remember EXACTLY how they looked like. But i remember more or less.

how, Nuerva, omri koresh, painting, digital

(The Journals of Raymond Brooks, by Amit Bobrov. Amazing book, really. with my art.)

Writing:

I decided to write it, create for it some art, nothing big. Gave some people to read it and they honestly really liked it! They wanted more, they told me it’s too short. Eventually, I met a good friend, Amit Bobrov, who pushed me into turning this into a book! I re-created the part of the dream and after some more feedback from friends. They told me that it’s still too short.

Amit gave me some writing lessons, techniques, how to build a character properly, how to create action schemes. So, i added 2 more parts, and i’m looking at the book in “Volumes” because each art piece is a thousand words!

So this is a BOOK BOOK. a lot of people think this is just art, NOPE it’s a BOOK BOOK with ART ART.

This thing became a monster, I wish this Campaign will be a success, i wish every one of you will want a book!

I need 500 orders to make this happen.

I hope you found this interesting, you can write me back directly to this email OR ON SITE

We are at Week 2/10 at 179!
