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

Disclaimer: All characters are mine, and all fanart belongs to the original creators. Characters of mine may be allow to be used as some fanart, as long its not in a sexual presentation.

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.

Dah, I hate value scales or at least getting them perfect. But they are very important.
A few months ago and the week of school starting, AAU quietly cancels all  of the students on CS6 licenses. Then days later, a student stood up, and is now heading the page of Adobe is stealing from Students and Alumni.

This is where things get messy. Many students are pissed at AAU's Administration, especially Graduates who have cancel CS6 Licenses. Yes, Allumnis and Graduates are without the CS6 licenses. But a few lucky ones can walk away from CS5 .5.

I decided one day to post this page to the Illustration group Facebook to support her for AAU Illustration students. I was the only one on that page to stand up for the rights of the students, and seems that everyone on the Illustration page had given up. I was talking to I believe he was a head of the Digital department and it really turned into an argument. Heated and debated. He kept talking about how a company can be telephoned and that AAU accidently got the wrong licenses because of this. He tells me that I was biased, and I was not doing enough research. He also told me in a manner of speaking, just because onine rep and teacher  said we have perpetual licences, doesn't mean it is true.  He kept on showing me the EULA page that supposedly the school use for licenses and Adobe. I talked to AAU adobe steals, and I told her about the 3 year agreement. She replies, AAU hasn't had the licenses for 3 years. SO I told the teacher, that I was here for 1 3/4ths years, and he replied (paraphrasing it), " We don't have access to the documents." Then I said, how can I believe you then? Another student said, why would *insert teacher's name here" lied? And I replied the same argument that the teacher gave me. Paraphrasing but basically what I said, is I had my full attention not to be biased and playing fair on the situation. I don't know who to believe. If you said that telephoning happens in a company, how much can I believe him and his written word if he does not have access to the documents or if he is even a higher up. He might be also doing what he is told by the higher ups. I think this is pretty close to Noah Bradly's Don't go to art school. If you read, he talks about the money and greed of people running art schools, but he does not hate the teachers working there.  I do not hate educators for schools. I love them all, and I support even my teacher, Craig Marshall. I just feel that sometimes. But the school needs an upgrade, or improvement. 


After those two paragraphs, suddenly I couldn't access the Illustration FB page, so I access the Illustration page through my company page to see what happened afterwards. They deleted my post and when searching for my name, its wasn't there.  So yes, I have been blocked. Its not really detrimental, even though I like looking at the page everyday, but still, this is saying something to me as a student saying I don't have any rights to express how I feel.  Or was it really the right page to express freedom of speech. Isn't that the first constitution? Freedom of speech. Apparently, AAU's Illustration facebook pages says no. Or even its been warped. Apparently they can allow posts of naked porn which one student got bomb shelled on and never got delete, but they can't allow something political that is about the school.  I love you art school.

The reason for anger, is that students don't get to walk away with CS6, or CLoud. Cloud is Subscription based per month and no one wants to pay off that subscription, not even the school for the after graduation. From what I've seen from one to two recent news articles  and Adobe steals, it says that the licenses were supposed to be perpetual. I was even told by my teacher, it was a free license to walk away after you graduated. But the school is now telling me is not? Since the first semester started for 1 and 3/4 years?  Students paying 25,000 + extras supplies, shouldn't be subjected to this kind of treatment as a solution. We understand its a for profit school, but a for profit school or Adobe shouldn't be doing something this shady.


Im now flustered how AAU is subjecting thier students to this kind of monotony. Students are force to creative cloud, without a fight back. Many told me to give up.  They are only free Adobe steals isn't going to win. He told me numerous times to "give up this witch hunt", but I really feel that this should not be shove under the rug.  For me, i am trying best not to be biased about the situations, because documentations are hidden from us and I have no idea what is going in the inner sanctums of AAU (and probably no one does).  However, from AAU's real estate sales and its fair share of criticism over the years, I can't help to over look who's fault it is. Probably not specifically AAU or Adobe, but probably both are at fault anyway, because of the miscommunication between everyone. People who are doing what they are told is not a sufficient answer for me to where the problem lies. We need those documentations to prove what we are agreeing to and AAU is keeping those things private. Alot of students don't know, or don't care, but if we were real professionals, we would read the contract and know what we are agreeing upon.

Keep in mind again, I don't hate everything about this school. As you seen my previous posts, I love alot of things I get to do at the school. I am glad, I took the last semester of Raven's class and got to be her model. Im appreciative when administration has done right when I get good teachers, find friends, and invite industry on campus. And appreciative they have hours for workshops. And a few teachers I've grown to like. And the clubs I've been in. And free printing. The only thing because of CS6 and seeing Academy's criticism on the paper, tells me administrations need to be improved upon. Operating a large school and telephoning should not be an total excuse they didn't understand the agreements, and we need to know the true answer.

So please, support Sarah Ryan. So far she has gotten the school to extend our licenses to buy us time. I don't know about winning or loosing, but supporting her is at least trying. As that teacher said, that she will loose, but does it matter? Isn't the matte she is trying?  Showing that she told the Administration to make a better move and extend the licenses, tells me that she is doing something.  AFter this act the student reps place on me, Im going to definately support them. I have never done any activism before, but I really want to try something and not sit there and let someone win.

I got in. YAY! Its a late journal entry but yea I have arrived for the art scene. My two pieces are on display at the Bedford Gallery. You can purchase both for $700. Part of the money recieve will go to my steven's lion costume.
 



Please come to the reception. Its on September 21 from  3-5pm. There is free snacks and wine. 


For more info, visit the bedford gallery website by clicking the banner.
Click here for the event Facebook page.

Also totally forgot to add a nice feature at least. I think the DA request and project community is cool. Then again im pretty bad to ask art for free, but I do my best to do my part. Nerveless, Ive gotten some good ones  who wanted to. This is one example of a good entry Ive seen.

Meet :icondzonatan:

And he did a sketch of my two OCs, Dagger and Chain. They are pretty awesome! Normally if you seen my original its just a plain ninja costume. This deviant add stuff I wouldn't even think of, the  extra detail on the clothing, and especially Chain's Feet. I never though of him constantly on his toes, but it makes sense so he can ready to kick the chain out of him. Might have to use that if I do a game or something. 

They are missing their crosses, but oh well. We could argue that the clothing is hiding their markings.

THe more expanded version then my tumblr.

So yea, I went to sac anime last week. I was soo glad at least one person right away knew I was ursula. I clapped for that artist in the artist alley. My friend who is usually link posted a video of Sac anime and Im around 2:45.



The voice actor of squidward was not surprised of what I painted, but he signed it anyway. I was a little sad of his reaction, but at least the rest of the con enjoyed my painting of the bold and brash. At least with my ursula cosplay, they were forced to take a picture of me. So now I can sell it for millions of dollars XD.

The next con, or festival on my roster is CASA DE FRUTA's Rennesiance fair.

 
I am deciding to go twice so that my friend link can also attend with me in October. More Videos of the Renaissance will come XD. Ill have to also the other fair in San Jose.



Up next we have two little 8x10 paintings. These were completed last week.



I did these because this is Walnut Creek's Centennial celebration, and Walnut Creek is where I was born. So I figured that I should do something in hour of my hometown, and the celebration. Its a contest attributed by the Bedford Gallery and as well where the pieces were submitted. Cross my fingers I get in, cause this would be a great honor, but the lady at the Gallery said, "It should be. Your art is Beautiful."  Another honor after getting in is to sell these piece of art. They are one sale for both for $700 and the money will go to mostly my Cosplay fund for Steven's lion. I only get 60% or about $420. But I will also a part of it will go to Hyrule Warriors as I really want to play this game.

And Sorry for the crappy quality. I really though my Ipad got the details clearly but turns out it blurred it a bit. Dumb Ipad...

Lastly I wanted to say, I love landscape painting. In thinking it is a whole lot easier then any other painting. The only thing you really need to pay attention to is value, atmospherice perspective, and color control. Everything else is filler for me. Its much more relaxing then figure painting.


And announcing my new School semester starts. Time flys by for a month off. I miss Raven symone just a bit, but I try as best as I can to balance to keep in touch with her vs, not being a creepy stalker.  She only has replyed back to me once through the online course only to say have a great summer. Its great we can still talk through our school's email accounts.

Anyway got some interesting classes. Finally, I am getting what I always wanted. No fundimentals or anything, but how to have better habits and kickstart my Career. I have two class that are going to be important, Design and Careers and Illustration 1. Illustration one is bascially habit keeping, and exploring various illustration jobs. They are treating you more like a professional. Im pretty excited to do some assignments in this class. I actually ran into two people in class that I know. It just happened. Design and Careers is basically what you think it is. Its basically a Career course class, where they are teaching you about employment and ettique in the work place. Im looking at first module, and they are really detailed in verbal and non verbal communications. They even talk about the zones, or personal space, one that includes the intamite Zone, which it literally said, 18 inches around the person's Body. Im wondering if they actually went with a rule with a kissing couple and measured 18 inches. I am wondering where the Friend Zone is? Probably the Zone they named Social.

I have a fun new class Im learning. Its tedious but fun. Its Computer programming and the language we are using is Processing 2. Here is a screen shot for my class assignment. 



Basically you copy an abstract artist's work with code. Like I said it gave me headaches and it was tedious. You do have to find the exact pixels, and the RBG values to code the XY coordinates. I had to finish within two-three nights to get it done. 

If you want to try some programming out, you can download Processing for free. There are some Tutorial you can learn from for a beginner.
processing.org/

And that's that. I will see u whenever. Probably if you come, the RenFair.

Oh I was wondering why they were exploiting your work all the sudden. It kind of felt weird what they were doing because it didn't seem all that official, and a little unprofessional. I didn't see alot of fanart until you showed up and there weren't' any official announcements on their page, hey we going to do fan art now. and that was after your page.
