Gallery that has a variety of art mediums and almost all it is inspired by anime in someway. Also fan art is included.

I like to mix things (majorally unlike things) as if you haven't notice (example 9 years old and therapist). I hope you enjoy my random crap that goes in and out of my brain and into my art work. :D

Favourites

I have a love for alot of styles since being active for at least a year. I do like animations from japan, however I like painterly styles, ones with vibrant hues, and composition that has harmony as well. Photography if it has sploches of colors and a glowy feel to it, I will fav. Also I will fave things for reference I might use in the future. But other then these, there isn't a specific style I like.

*I warn u all Im a fav whore XD. Eventually later I may or may not comment.

The Semester

Anyways it is new territories. I started up school again yesterday. Technically all classes including Online started Monday, which I have two, but aside that, I went on campus yesterday. Yesterday, It was animal anatomy class, and I have a feeling is going to be better then the previous semesters as you know, I had problems of feeling the previous. All the class so far are never encouraging to go outside and study the animals. I feel a different subject and being on field trips might change my view on art a little. I guess I feel its the inside enviroment and being at home makes life a bit boring sometimes. I wanted to do Locational drawing and painting, but it was canceled on me, and so this is a good substitute.  We also get to draw live animals too. Its going to be so tempting to pet the animals, but we aren't allowed.  Tommorrow, Ill be back in the digital saddle and learn basics. I felt, even though it never matter, maybe seening painting techniques from a viz dev artist will help. Online are kind of boosting my selling skills. I wish it was on campus, but I really just wanted to make room for my job.

The Job

And on that subject, BASKIN ROBBINS HAS FOUND ME OUT. I got the job. So far, I love the first two shift I had. The guys were friendly, and the business wasn't too bad. I didn't mind scooping ice cream for the folks, and the second time, I was tipped 7 dollars. But the third shift by far was the worst for me. I work for two stores, and so the first two shifts required me to only work at that store, where only one person was with me on shift. So my third shift was different because it was a different store, and so I had two boss like people giving me two different instructions. So yea you can see the problem. I was really treated the bottom of the barrel there. They have this attitude that its your responsibility to fix your own messes. While its fine and all, on top of the two instructions, I get an instruction to clean something or to help Customers, and then I hear my name scorching in fire "CARISSA!" It was only hard because I was balancing following the instructions and remembering cleaning the mess I made. On top of that, you got me treated like a new person as in they never watch me at the other store. I had a few times where they were helping too much or too little. The worst of it, closing up shop.  While I didn't mind sweeping, even though I saw the girls cleaning a few times, the other times, they were talking and not working. It sort of annoyed me a bit as I was doing heavy duty work, while the girls were just cleaning dishes. The mop, was the heaviest thing I have ever lifted in the store. You would think the Ice Cream tub was hard, but nope, its the stringy Industry Mop bathed in a ton of cleaning solution that turns the floor into an ice rink. You have to lift the mop into the bucket, and then on top of that, lift the mop again into a tiny bucket to wring it out. After that's all done, you have to then lift a bucket filled with solution, lift the mop and clean the mop into the solution, lift the mop out of the solution and put it in the second small bucket. Then Dump both buckets out. It felt like going to a bodybuilder's competition, stuff I don't want to do.

In contrast, Im not sure whether to take this hate or not. These girls when I first met them, were nice and talkative, so I know they can be nice and they are also my age which some have the same interest. They helped me on certain items and they weren't all hateful.  Ive just got a job to do, the pay and hours are nice, it was hard to get a job in the first place, and my dad says work hard for it. Yet, my human rights were a little violated on in the inside, my dad kept telling my bro about the wrong things bout the postal office and how to be interviewed, and it just reminded me too much of my family at home a bit.

But eh? Who knows. Maybe its just because I'm so flustered as a trainee, being my first job. Ill just have to pile through it. Be strong, that is my ninja way as Naruto would say. Or Be Strong and Courages as the Bible says. My next shift is Sat and Sun, same time, same location. It could be different as I possibly have different employees. 

The Musuem.

There is an amazing exhibit that is already in Cali today. I've been seeing alot on my FB feed that this art exhibit lives and has touch many on the other side of the globe. And I invited a few friends to tag along.
 Its called Living digital Space by the Japanese Team, Team Lab. Check it out.
www.pacegallery.com/arttechnol…

The museum is name pace gallery and its located in Menlo Park, CA. 

After this event, I feel there shouldn't be an excuse not to draw anything. I should try to do something after seeing these works of art. This is true modernism done right. And I have nothing to say really. Im speechless by these pieces.

So yea, I should head to bed, so bye bye. Good night lovely internet, Ill will miss you until the reachs of my bright little screen that is my samsung galaxy, and the corner of New Montgomery.
Well its the new year and the last month of my break. This year is  it. This is all the last marbles I need to graduate. I had an amazing party, playing Dr. Who Card Game, with slight alcohol tipsy, but not much. We are kind of clean Christians ya know. And we watched strange magic together, and its  feels like The Room Musical. It was all fun and magical, but very strange to why its so horrible.

The day on Saturday, I went to Sac Anime. Line Con was crazy, and basically Autographics was. I got to get a ton of autographs and meet soo many different Peps. Some of them, I took them way back. Like I found out one of them was Malice from Neopets, and then she replied, Oh this takes me way back! And then Sailor Venus in the new dub, was shocked at the VHS Tapes I had.  I got to see old faces like the voice of Stephen and Mario. I jogged their memories a bit from the last adventure, stating such things like "Your the one who...". We even got stopped by CW news since they were on their way to met Ash. Its hard to say who was the most impressive, but I think if you want to pay, Veronica Taylor, the Voice of Ash, was the best. Her price of $10 meant you can take as many photos as you want with her, in comparison to other VAs who said 25 for all of them.  She love my Pikachu cosplay and thought I was cute.  I was happy because I was working so hard to fix up the nasty wig last night.  At the end of the Day, I was very salty on Smash Melee. Its weird to play that game because it feels alot slower, but I won almost every time. THANK YOU AAU GAME CLUB and Monster hunter! Also Im planning to sell the two free games he gave to me and they are now signed by him.

Today, I did not expect to do a demo interview at Baskin Robbins.  It was great change of pace with interacting with the employees  while the man in charge tested me (I believe it was Micheal). There was a small face to face interview, but it was only like couple of seconds and then it was demo time. I understood alot about basics like keeping it clean and giving alot of scoop for what the customers want, but man, scooping an ice is a workout.  Your wrist will scream of pain, but Im sure Ill get use to it without breaking a sweat. I need loads of practice. But in the end, I got to take the sundae and Chocolate Cappuccino Blast home. That was sweeter then any other interview. Every interview should be like this and Ill make sure when I have a company, Hands on will be my bet for hiring employees.

Lastly I got my cintiq finally. While it does work, the screen does not. My greatest fear about the tablet about the display had come true as a few years back, we decided to give it enough power for one monitor. So we need to fix the HDMI to get my Cintiq Fully functional. Other wise, we watsed $600 on a tablet. Sad day, but I at least can draw with it. Maybe Ill do some draw and have fun with it while it gets fixed.

Club Thunderlips Beta v.1 by narutokunobessed
Today I talk about the lovely AAU, the one that milks your finances to raise awareness for the Stephen's car collection. But I think this semester was a better one. Despite me balling in tears at one point in the semester, it wasn't slave work. My emotions were balance, and I was gradually cheerful to do more work. I felt I learned more then the previous semesters. Despite getting a C for Illustration 3, Illustrator and Flash, have become acquaintances of mine. Rabid, but still tame. I probably will use it, but not as much as that class, and it will change once I get my 13 Cintiq HD. Yes yes, Im upgrading my tablet. I wished a bigger size, but you can't pay 1,700 for Cintiq 22HD. Anyways, my favorite was probably the Club Thunderlips assignment. I couldn't help but chuckle alot of things. His final Review said that I should ask for more help, however the help I wanted to get wasn't at the right time or I felt I didn't need any. Its a dilemma I always have for living in Far Far Away land of East Bay California.

Back to the balling in tears, this was my other class, the Director of the Illustration Department directing Clothed Figure 3. I feel he never forgot, but he probably forgave. And after that class, Contours are now just an awkward relationship. Something I wouldn't expect. He wants us to learn to draw one object and then put them in a relationship to another which does make it organic, but its just going against what Ive learned. I have been taught to structure my lines, and layer them on top, but he wants us to make it feel flowy and organic without the structure. It helps and Im slowing down because of it. I still have a hard time drawing, but if I paint with shapes and then draw it in, its a whole lot easier. I think that is my style and maybe if I practice enough, I can do lines only, but I want to do shapes more. On the last day, the dragon warrior model pose in such grace and beauty, that she was also Anthropomorphic. She stood on metal stilts, that we had to translate to any animal of our choosing. Of course I couldn't draw em legs, but Chuck gave his first approval to my drawing as a good Drawing. Not great, but good. Thats better than nothing.

Drawing from life, I think its better, but I need to do even better. More practice is just needed. I did like drawing that Armour for some reason that day and she made me play some Monster Hunter afterward ( we will come to terms in a moment).

Lastly I'm currently embarrassed about Short Form Writing. I didn't submit a peer review as a last assignment, which dented my grade. It went from B to C+. Im not happy because usually online classes are easy, and I can't accept that I got a C over some online class. That isn't right. I'm kind of mad. 

Speaking of MH4U, yes Im a slight fan. Been playing day and night of this game almost. It is just a rewarding RPG Game, but also Peta riot game. Its about slaying monsters. For some I feel bad, but others like giant ones and the velocoraptors are just plain rude. Trap me and start ripping me apart, ramming me in the middle of picking honey, and etc. But after the annoyance, its just satisfying, and gets the Adrenaline going. 
Only thing I would really change is the item system and tutorial system. The item system many times on the panels is what messed me up. Its not organize like your inventory, so your stuck with that item. You can't press X on the bigger panel screen or some of the items are terrible. But everything else, tons of question, decoartions to upgrade your items, crafting, and cooking, etc, there is fun to be held in the world of MH4U. Find my Guild card with Maejonin and Rikako the Palico with the Item Get screen and Tigre Hunting Horn. Already Defeated this baddie right here. Too easy though:


And as for my game project, its still on! Im still fearing for my life about how to do the Crystals and Metals. I think I can handle the metals though. 

Still a toast to 2015, and bring on Senior 2016. I am so done with AAU, and I want my adult life.

Club Thunderlips Beta v.1
+ v.1 This is the version I submitted to class. New content will be updated once I get my rest and finish my other projects.  

Know bug:
Sounds are not hQ


Here it is guys! Club Thunderlips, P2P and Electro Lion  and their sweet sweet abs, serenading with their music of rave and electro lightning. Featuring majority of the sounds taking from the guys @ freesound.com.

I really enjoy making the Illustrator for several weeks and animating stuff with flash within two nights of no sleep and fixing it on the final day. And Actionscript is only a nightmare when it wants to be.

Obon Festival Travel Poster by narutokunobessed
Obon Festival Travel Poster
The last Illustrator assignment we had to do in class. We are moving into flash. Its a good thing I learn a bit of after effect because most of it translates to symbols.

Some Critiques about this poster was the color pallet seems to indicate fire, and make the circle bigger, and simplify. I was doing my best to do this poster based on value, and I used Photoshop to check my grey scales, but it wasn't enough I guess. Based on the previous critique I made it darker, because the pallet was too bright for the lanterns. But now its not the right color and it looks like fire.

This may sounds stupid coming from an anime fan but... what's an Otaku?

narutokunobessed Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2015  Student General Artist
Otaku is equvalent to nerd in japan but its commonly view as negative word in japanese because of the Otaku murders, especially the word Hikkamori which is an equivalent to a shut in nerd.

Americans take Otaku as a positive connotation as if you were to say anime fan.
