Kazetatsu's Profile Picture

Artist | Student | Varied
United States


why have I not been doing art much lately? I should be making stuff, like really making stuff not just doodles that I know I'll never post. To be honest I am trying to figure out why exactly I have been creating things for years. what drives me. what are my new dreams? I've reached all the ones I had before college. for some reason, 'I do it because I love doing it' isn't a good enough cause to create things any more. Yet this is what I should be doing especially at this critical time. Creating things for no reason but I want to, and not caring if it happens to be good enough for a grade, or if it has some deep meaning or is just there for the sake of itself. Yet I am not. The only one grading me is me, the only one analyzing my work for purpose is me. I need to stop grading myself and just make things or do things because I can, and stop striving for standards I only give myself which I can never reach to begin with.
Floating above it all. by Kazetatsu
Floating above it all.
I wanted to draw brush, in a more detailed than usual version, and try and show some of the textures without being too realistic. Also I got some feedback about my 3d version from teachers that was really upsetting, so I drew her to make up for that because the drawing fits her far better than that thing ended up doing, and she looks more like she could actually exist in a drawing than in the 3d thing. The original file of this image, is incredibly huge.(her head can almost fill my screen at scale 100%) I probably could have made it smaller but I found it easier to work with a big file this time around.

without all the things we used to do, its hard to draw and develop the characters sometimes, when their place has changed forms. I wish we could do that draw to roleplay thing again, but with all the bells and fancy colors and tools we have on computers, I wish we could do it with the same simplicity we did on hatena during those days. amazing how a simple nintendo device and a website which doesn't really exist now can bring people together. I want something like that again....

If you don't know about the watermark, Loner is one of the names I use. It's more common for me to use than Kazetatsu, and its the name I went by when this character was originally created. I may sign any piece with either name.
what Have I been up to? by Kazetatsu
what Have I been up to?
mostly doing stuff in maya for a directed study, and I have an internship with a working artist so I have not been doing my normal stuff at all, of course one of the things I would try to do is characters. I am also working on landscape modeling, simple animations etc. I probably won't get into character animation yet, its taking more time than I'd like things to since I am learning as I go, and the semester has about six weeks left. anyone else work with 3d or know people who do? I'd like to see other beginner/nonprofessional 3d work.

Hey! it's Teayl, from WCRPG, who plays Dryad. I'm just drawing Shiren and Dryad, so it was convenient you have Shiren's picture on here!
