TeamLiquid Artist Directory Submission

One of the most influential aspects of my artistic growth has come from being apart of a global community, as a consumer and contributor, through the power of the internet.  My hobby and past time has been, for the last ten years, the myriad of aspects erupting from eSports.  Ever since I began consuming the content provided by community members and the grass roots effort to bring the phenomenon to the masses, I’ve been contributing as well. 

TeamLiquid has been a community that I consider myself affiliated with for a good while now.  Recently wo1fwood has posted a resource that focuses on the very growth and talent aspect of the online contributing artist group.  If you have any artistic interest or appreciation I’d urge you to check out:

The Heart of a Man

the Heart of a Man

This was another practice of listening to a specific song on repeat the entire time that I work on a piece.  The track is then used for the background music in the speedpainting.  The hope is that the piece really reflects something in the music, and it forces a lot of creativity from me even when I might not feel the most creative.

My study/work in progress vlog

 

I have spent the last couple of days studying run cycles for an indie game that I have been working on.  I have done a lot of work animating in the past, and in particular the run cycle.  For me it’s a hard thing to wrap your head around, because there are many right ways to do it, as well as many wrong.
