I took his scribbly map doodle and replicated it faithfully!

So the RE7 demo was recently released and I was very excited to try it out and probably be too scared and give up!  I am proud to say that while I may not have explored the entire demo, I did complete the one task given to you.  Half my video is me going, "what was that?!" and my 4 yr old reminding me that this is fake and I should get moving.

I grew up in love with Resident Evil, my mom played 1 and 2 when it came out and I was 6yrs old.  I never played 1 and 2 but love every aspect of them.  With the change of the camera angles and more action I was able to play 5 & 6 and I even slowly crept my way through 0 with the help of a spoiler free walkthrough.

This game creeped me out in the middle of the morning, but I'm pretty easy to creep out in video games.  I am looking forward to the release!

So I bought a Ugee tablet monitor, a decent and inexpensive alternative to the Wacom Cintiq which is a thing of dreams on my budget.  I have many a ways to go when it comes to bringing my digital paintings to life.  I've learned that I have trouble with color, I'm more accustomed to sketching in black and white.  I can feel some progress in this sketch and every sketch I do...

Created this for a friend of my mothers.  I have no formal training in Illustrator, but I am gladly going through trial and error to get the hang of it.

I drew this caricature of a friend of mine for his youtube gaming channel.  It took many drafts and rough sketches and then many more color and re-color but I am very happy with the final result!

So I've managed to wrap up a small side project, but it is ongoing so it's nice to have something to do relevant to my skills.  I've been working with a special guy named Jim and his friends to create a Let's Play channel featuring ALL of us, and some dogs :)

So here is our banners and I'm so happy to have helped edit one of the first released videos.  We're just a group of people who love video games, dogs, making fun of them and having fun!  So please, check it out.

Until Dawn Part. 1 - Until Dawn is a great game, and I had lots of fun editing this video.

And here is the process of one of our heads

Addicting game, check it out here!
So there's a great tutorial at tutsplus about creating a sticker bomb.  It's a great tutorial because it teaches you to use the different tools in illustrator instead of focusing on just one technique and the outcome is so adorable that it kept my attention :)

My result!

So go on over and check it out!

Yes, kind of creepy right?  In this video it goes over putting together the face using parts from stock images and digital painting.  This video made yesterday, I was going to post another today but honestly I accidentally deleted it :(

This is where she's currently at, the lost video went through an attempt to collage her neck but instead I decided to just paint it from scratch.  Also painted the lacy top and arms but added some hands from another stock image.

So I've not only recently finished the book The Mermaid's Sister, but I've also been watching a lot of process videos lately, so I figured I'd create my own.  I don't think of myself as a person to learn from but I made it for anyone who's interested and also to train myself.

So here is my newest piece entitled "Trapped", it's currently in the sketch phase now, enjoy!

As part of Amazon Prime I received a free copy of the book The Mermaids Sister by Carrie Ann Noble and at first it was slow with an ending presented early on, but the obstacles is what catches you.

Anyways, while practicing drawing dragons, special thanks to Sheranuva at DeviantArt for this simple tutorial on the different types of dragon heads.  I chose the Narrow headed dragon who reminded me of Osbert, from The Mermaids Sister.  Osbert is a 100lb domesticated, house Wyvern (dragon) who looks after the main characters Clara and Maren.  Remembering this, I managed to create a quick sketch of Clara and Osbert.

So it's definitely worth checking out if you're into that type of fantasy novels.
So I am officially over being pink.

For those who don't know, the top half of my hair is colored, the rest is all it's natural super dark brown.  I've got about an inch of roots and faded pink, what to do?

I'm going full head blue!  Currently headed to the store to get:

L'oreal Hair Color Remover

This is the first remover I used since I first dyed my hair and I never had trouble with it.  I've tried Wella Remover which didn't work and Color Oops which turned my pink hair blue.

Salon Care Blue Bleach Powder

This is the regular Sally's brand, I have bottles of peroxide already on hand.  My hair is really long so I plan on getting 3 packets.  The blue cools your hair so it doesn't do that stupid bronzing too much.

Manic Panic/Jerome Russel Color

Depending on what's in stock, I do live in Hawaii in the middle of the ocean.

I have purple shampoo for toning but I may get a boxed blonde dye for a second softer bleaching.  Wish me luck :)
Playing with textures and brushes, it doesn't feel finished and the composition seems a little off.  I suppose this is a work in progress.

Just doing some exercises thanks to a lovely tutorial I found from Pelleron Art.  It's kind of an intermediate tutorial, it goes over tips for cutting out images but mostly assumes basic knowledge of Photoshop.  I'm pretty happy with the result but oh so lazy to go over details lol
