And now for something completely different!
Once upon a time, I was a graphic design major. Due to being critted by a complicated fustercluck of life circumstances when I was about 20, I had to abandon that career path. I sadly stopped doing much creative writing and visual art around that time, too — the demands of my degree (and later, grad school) sapped most of my energy for those sorts of activities. Changing my major is one of the big regrets I have in my life.
About this time last year, I got an email from Blizzard that helped me reclaim a part of myself that I thought I’d lost, in terms of my writing.
This year, I’ve come back from Blizzcon feeling full of creative, positive energy. I want to harness it to heal another part of myself, but I need your help. I know myself well, and frankly, I NEED DEADLINES. I need to be held accountable for creative projects.
So (and this is a little scary) I’m going out on a limb here. If idk mai bff Mordent Evenshade can help me out with personal growth via the writing contest, why can’t drawing portraits of the people who have come to mean so much to me?
I have never done any sort of Warcraft fan art before, so this is kind of scary for me. I’m not going to charge, but please bear in mind that I do have a full-time job, a loving husband, and two hours’ worth of commute time. As such, I’ve set myself a deadline of getting five bust portraits done before Christmas. Full color.
Below are some samples of my work.
FULL UP! Pewter, Cynwise, Rades Restoisepic and Misaweha, thank you! We’ll see how this goes before I offer more.
If you want to take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me, leave a comment. These will be digital paintings.
