I just noticed, today is the 10 year anniversary of this Deviantart account.  How disturbing and weird.  If only I would have taken art seriously for all of those 10 years, but then I would be a completely different person.  I haven't changed as much as most... but at least I'm not the same angsty teenager I was when I made this account.  The younger me would have expected me to be married with kids and a mortgage by now.  The current me expects that to be the case in the next 10 years.  Hopefully future me doesn't mess that one up.  At least I will count on my future self to be twice as good at art as I currently am... but let's aim for at least three times as good.

Anyway, back to the youtube content portion of the entry:

Hello everyone.  This journal entry is just meant to be a portal to my youtube channel.  A continuing project of trying to provide videos relating to the art world, both educational and sometimes just fun things.

Sinixdesign Youtube Channel

Hopes for 2012 include doing more Concept Design Lab videos, more video sketchbooks, portfolio reviews, guest speedpaintings with interviews, paintovers, more art theory and basics videos, and videos that discuss the history of famous designs and designers.

Here is a tutorial series based on digitally Painting Faces and Facial Skintones:
Painting Faces: 01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12

Also, a single video on actually drawing the faces:
Drawing Faces (redux)

"Artist Showcase" is a series that involves getting great artists to share a video of their work process while we do some commentary and a casual interview.  The latest video features Ian Galvin:

Artist Showcase:  Ian Galvin [jet moto redesign]
Artist Showcase:  MrJack [digital painting]

"Design Lab" is an ongoing series that goes through the process of creating a new design, starting with a brainstorming video, and then a followup final design video.  Latest episode of Design Lab:

Design Lab Episode 9 [sunken forest] - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

Also have an ongoing series called "Let's Explore DeviantArt".  It's a series critiquing and commenting on DeviantART, nothing serious, just going through random days and talking about what's on the front page.  It's all in good fun, for the sake of EDUTAINMENT!  You can check them out the LATEST video here:

Let's Explore DeviantART: Ep. 11 w/ Pavel


Leave comments on the youtube videos with your recommendations for future videos.  Talk to me on twitter too, need more twitter friends!

Cheers!

Meanwhile, things are going surprisingly well with my little button making side business.  I'm getting custom pin business and it's a fun little side job.  We're working on shirts and whatnot.  I do a lot of fighting game related stuff, and that's all going to be available on FocusAttack.com.  I'm also getting ready to make the Justin BeeBear shirts, which will be geared more toward small kids and girls that are into cute things.

I'm drawing more too, maybe I'll do some finished stuff, so I can post it up here.  Cheers!

I [still] play this game too much!  I have been working on some random art projects again.  I also took the time to design some fun buttons for Street Fighter 4, Starcraft 2, Halo Reach, and my wonderful creation... Justin BeeBear.  They could make for good gifts and whatnot.  I had to brush off my web design skills to create a little shop for selling random stuff like this and more in the future. Check it out here!

Also, Thank you to the awesome people who bought buttons early on.  Things have been going good on that front and I've been working with FocusAttack.com to make awesome new stuff such as T-shirts.  You can even preorder our first run of Ryu and Chun Li T-shirts from FocusAttack.com.

I know people probably want to see more of the type of art I'm known for, but this has still been a fun way to keep myself varied.  I'm still sketching around the normal fun stuff though.

At the moment, I'll probably be more likely to update with sketches on twitter or something, because I haven't done anything major and polished.

Freshening up this page a bit.  Things change, things stay the same.  I don't have much to say at the moment, but I have plenty to draw.  I still need to make more videos.

-*Transmission 03.06-

I'm sorry for being unproductive the last months.  I have been going through some health issues that have made it hard to get anything done.  It's nothing serious, just some heartrate issues that I am working on correcting.  Hopefully, I will be back in the swing of things soon enough.

So, I wanted to mention that along with a couple other things.

1.  foxmerquise8 is looking for artists to collaborate with.  He does some art worthy writing, so drop him a line if you're looking to expand yourself.

2.  I mentioned something about youtube in the last journal, but I'll give some details now.  I had planned on getting more stuff on there first, but with the health distraction, I let up on it.  I plan to get regular stuff coming up on it eventually.  It's an interesting way to present or ramble about art.  Here's the link:  Sinixdesign YouTube

So, apparently it was my birthday today.  I'm 24.  I think that means I'm allowed to start dating now.

In other news, yay for 50k hits, I was gonna try to get some piece of art up for it, but ran out of time today, so I'll try tomorrow.  Also planning to finally update my website with a new, albeit still mediocre, layout.  I think I'll do that on the start of the year.

And lastly, I'm also gonna try to start making random youtube videos about art related demos and tutorials.  Probably simple stuff, but if anyone has ideas on subjects I should tackle, I'd be happy to hear them.

Have a good new year.  Be ambitious.

Fresh news off the presses:  There's a brand new Chroma Core Cadet in the lineup.

:iconhungerartist: is firing up his power-suit and joining the good fight.  Be sure to check out his gallery and get chopped in half by some wicked style.

Now I must get back to work, still much preparation needed to be ready for the great sequential art revolution of 2018.  I wouldn't want to miss out on that, now would I.

I am exploring this fancy CSS 'thing'.  I like being able to chop whole areas of the template away in reckless swipes.  Perhaps I'll rebuild this into something more aesthetic in future time.  Meanwhile, art is good.  Conceptart.org has kept with many wonderful activities and continues to be the number one place on the web to find inspiration and improve your art skills.  The latest activity was a worldwide self-portrait day, might be an annual event, so look for it next year... had 300+ people on this first run and lots of wonderful art.  Another CA.org workshop will be coming up in mid-December.. they are possibly the best art-focused experience you can have.  Anyway, I'm off to do something or other.

Well well well, in light of recent developments, I feel it's a decent time to make a new journal entry.  First thing, I'd like to thank the lovely Nut-Case for hooking me up with a wonderful subscription.  Now I can steal hirotai's sexy headers so we truely look like a unified front of lead-spraying doom.  I'm glad to see him back in the swing of things after the long departure.

On toward business, I was asked to help bring an upstart comic writer's work into fruition... so I've agreed and begun working on a project with him.  It should be good, if I manage to bring it justice.. it certainly has the potential.  I'm hoping this will be the start of a long-term side-career in creating comics.  Anyway, that's what I'm up to at the moment.. and I'll try to get some related art submitted in the following weeks.

PS.  I roll with Ironman, f*ck the Cap'n.

The Chroma Core Battalion is now in full effect.  If you're wondering what the hell I'm talking about, then it's too late for you, you're already dead.






No?  You're still alive?  Are you sure??   .....I see.  Well, in that case, Chroma Core is the new throat-slitting biker gang that's taking over this small town.  Composed of the only man with a bulletproof wacom, aka hirotai, and myself.  We're out to kick some deviant ass.

DA seems to have a crush on me this week.. I get featured in that "Unknown Artists" article a few days ago, and now I've gotten a Daily Deviation today.  Fun stuff.  I've been spending my time obsessing over and reading through the Berserk manga the past couple days, so I don't even have any decent new art to share.  But there should be plenty more soon.  Thanks for all the love, and let me take the chance to redirect some to my buddy hirotai.

:iconhirotai:
He's got some of that "talent" stuff I've been hearing about.


--3 years of art (from 6-18-2005)--
Yes, happy third birthday to my deviantart account.  It makes me feel like coming back to it, so I will.  This account pretty much marks the beginning of my serious interest in art... I think the first things I submitted were actually prose, crazy, but I was also starting to draw at that time.  The time at which I started this account seems like ancient history now... I've come a long way with art, and I got a long ass way left to go.

Anyway... I cleaned out most of my deviations, just leaving the most memorable ones for various reasons.  Gonna try to stay active on this site.  Maybe it will get me to think about finished pieces more often.. instead of just sketchbook doodles and speedpaints.  Who knows.  Something to suppliment my quest for art.
