To everyone on Deviantart, thank you for giving me such a warm welcome when I joined Deviantart. I have been on here before but decided to start from scratch and build a more professional portfolio. In the near future I will be starting a Youtube Channel and opening a online store so feel free to provide me with any art requests or possible videos to create. 

Thanks everyone.

Happy Easter Everyone!!! I hope you all have a wonderful day with your family and friends! 
Loss of Humanity, Consumed by Darkness
Here is my third Star Wars piece that is linked with my Rey and Anakin artworks, this piece I titled it Loss of Humanity, Consumed by Darkness because the dark force changes you to the point when you loose who you use to be and I have Rey on the darkside as this could be her fate. This round I drew and painted this piece digitally as I wanted to create a final mix media piece with all three of my works. I still need to figure out the composition but hope that it turns out to what I have envisioned in my head. 

This piece is fanart from the Star Wars series and the most recent movie the Force Awakens. After watching the Force Awakens there were many predictions about Rey and Kylo, especially with Rey possibly going to the dark side and following in Anakin's footsteps. This piece is strictly a prediction of Rey's Fate, but wanted to the painting to tell a story and foreshadow what could happen. 

The challenges of this piece were learning how to draw digitally, use a different type of lighting system, use texture brushes to make it look realistic and exlpore with different facial expressions. I am using three lights my natural light which is the off white light reflecting on her skin, then my dramatic pink light from her lightsaber to add some edge and contrast. Lastly my dark blue reflective light from the night sky. Exploring different facial expressions was very interesting because I had to study the muscles in the face and know what parts of the face cringes and tightens up.

My speed art video for this piece will be coming soon! Stay tuned!

Bloom Through the Wounds
This is a fan art from Akatsuki no Yona, and I was inspired by Zeno's backstory which was a sad but strong story and how it molded him to who he is now. He's a very inspiring character to me and to all of us who experienced dark times or a dark past that ruins us. Zeno shows us how to see the light in the darkness and to embrace the light and built a strong backbone by embracing strength and positivity. He really teaches all of us the beauty of life. 

The story of this painting is about Zeno and Kaya, Kaya was his wife but she passed away of sickness. The single flower in the air is a symbol of her, Zeno gave her that flower and used that to signify her. Zeno was heartbroken and lost after this dark moment but he also became the powerful yellow dragon who had a immortal body and can't die so it was diffcult for him to watch Kaya and his dragon friends die and can't ever see them in heaven. In the picture Zeno is injuried this was from one of his powerful battle moments in the manga. Where his injuries are, flowers are blooming out of his wounds to show that Kaya is watching over him and healing his pains. The wind blown effect of the petals signify the active spirit of Kaya blowing to Zeno and healing him. 

I was experimenting with angles and the golden ratio composition to bring flow to the picture guiding your eye from the bottom right to the top left. Used my storytelling knowledge in creating this picture to depict the story of Zeno and bring emotion to this piece. The challenge was to include a form of juxtaposition, where incorporating a contrasting subject which is blood (I never add anything bloody in my paintings so this is out of my zone). This painting is seen to be conveyed as a peaceful and relaxing piece but when introducing blood in the scene it brings a form of unsteadiness and a questionable feeling which stimulates the viewer's curiosity. I also used the blood in a beautiful way using flowers to soften the scene. Lastly, I experimented with drawing directly onto the computer and experimenting with another angles of foreshortening.

Stay tuned for the speed art video as it will be coming soon.
