    Hai, I just felt like visiting your page and leaving a VM because I am such a fan of your art haha. It's very majestic. How are you doing today?

    Hey, congratulations on becoming a featured artist!

    Not too shabby, I'll say.

    Hiya, hiya~ First of all, your signature is GORGEOUS. <3 I just wanted to say hi, and introduce myself. You can call me "Murk" if you'd like. :3

    I actually took a look at your dA, and I am thoroughly impressed with your work. :D You should be proud of your beautiful art and talent.

    Anyway, I'm babbling on. How are you? :)

    Haha thanks! But like I said, I was lucky enough to have the support of some very enthusiastic contributors. Don't get me wrong I worked my butt off and hell yeah pats on the back all around, but the real substance of my resource thread came from people eager to share the art of, well, art!

    I'd love to have even more resources and cool tutorials and things like that to add. Zach and I are actually trying to merge coding between T&I and A&D, because some of the CSS people use to decorate their galleries is nothing short of incredible and definitely epitomizes art in its essence. Things like coding and even profile design should at the very least be recognized in A&D, imo.

    Yeah that took me like half a century maybe?? A really long time lol. It was one of the first projects i took on when I was modded. I'm actually currently working on fleshing or the digital section and a photography resource as well! But naturally is taking quite a bit of time. I was lucky to have a lot of people willing to help me compile research and links. But thanks a bunch! It means a lot that my efforts could actually pay off lol.

    I couldn't agree more. The transparency it offers really humanizes A&D's veteran members and makes people way less intimidating. We all start somewhere.

    Hahaha don't worry, we were all moody teenagers at one point trying to figure ourselves out. You're not alone in your experience!

    I cannot say with any certainty that I'm doing what's right for A&D. I just don't know its ebbs and flows since it hinges on such a temperamental medium. But what I do know is that we all have one thing in common; art. And addressing that in its purest, as the form of expression it is, has been the most rewarding avenue I've taken with the section. As opposed to trying to mold it into this one size fits all self deprecating center of half-hearted "**** it" posts. It's honestly better when people post what makes them feel and what makes them enthusiastic about posting again, no matter what it is. It gives me the freedom to listen to the members and use their ideas to improve A&D overall. That's what it is, a community built section.

    At least, that's the image I have in my head regarding the Art Bio lol. We'll have to wait and see, obviously, but I'm optimistic that having another element that helps artists integrate into the community and grow will always be a good thing.

    Exactly. Artist's don't flock to PC because they want legitimate, hardcore C&C on their artwork. There's other websites for that. There's schools dedicated to that. My goal with A&D is to create a casual, comforting, and fun environment for artists of all skill levels. There's no point in trying to make A&D into something it will never be, a mistake I made early on by trying to push education in art and not enjoyment. The reality is, A&D is more about the process of becoming your best self than the final result anyway.

    So embrace those stupid embarrassing doodles of your best friend's furry OC! And all those dumb ass brushes/textures that you were all about in 2009! It's all a step in your collective, individual journey to improve and should be valued as much as your greatest piece. :)

    Haha, I know how you feel. I love A&D, I really do, but sometimes it falls prey to these moments of stagnation and idleness. It's no one's fault; in fact, I'd say that's just the nature of art itself. But as A&D's mod I want to see it grow and prosper and be a fun place! Sometimes that means taking a gamble on a damn good idea and trying new stuff. :)

    Ahhh I just checked it out and it's amazing! I love it dude. It's downright perfect. Super excited about getting my own art together and contributing.

    Art Bio sounds perfect. :) This is a really great idea, I so hope it takes off! Once the collab is over I'll be advertizing the thread in my signature. I'll talk to hstaff about making this an official thing and hopefully we can get this the attention it deserves!

About Me

  • About Amaruuk
    Hey, all! I'm Amaruuk. I am a long-time artist and old PC-er that drifts back here from time to time to hang out for a while and share what I have with the nice folks of the forums.

    I don't generally do fanart; I choose instead to draw and paint as a means of expressing feelings or some highly personal allegories, with my own visual language I use when plain old English isn't enough to speak the words in my heart. That or just critters, living, extinct or totally made up (and no, not 'fakemon', yikes). Lately I've really been into paleoart. Most of what I do these days is digital, but when I have the money I also enjoy handcrafting, traditional painting/drawing, and I want to someday experiment with 3D printing and other sorts of digital/real-world hybridization. I just love art! ♥

Just thought I'd share with the nice folks here all the places you can find me and my art across the internet. There are treasures of all sorts that don't make it into my thread or even my deviantART gallery.

My Sketch Blog - for WIPs, doodles, projects, and other miscellaneous art stuff. If you want to see sneak peeks of stuff I'm working on or random doodles that will otherwise never see light, check it out!

My Professional Blog - Most of the stuff here is also on...

Posted inArt, ‎Pixels
So it seems I've been gaining a bit of recognition for my pixel prowess these days. I've also decided to make this blog more of an art blog since I really don't have much to actually blog about here, and it'll be a good place to get my work posted here without the disappointment of dead threads.

Anyway, I'm starting off my showcases with a quick trip through my time as a pixel artist, from the humble quasi-pixels of 2003 to the contest-winning pieces of 2010. My memories of a lot...

So you all know that PC's got an art section, and perhaps you all know how it's faring.

I thought I'd take a bit to analyze the situation and dissect things that are probably obvious anyway. It is something I do a lot, after all.

Let's look at the nature of PC itself:
  • It's a discussion forum, which means that words and text are arguably the focus rather than pictures.
  • On the same note, PC being a forum automatically allows it to lean its imagery focus towards forum-related

Haha, I guess I might as well start one as if my posts in the actual forums don't have enough text in them

Uhh... Haven't got much to say at the moment. I have class in the morning? I was an idiot yesterday and made yet another art thread for God knows what purpose, lol. I like watching things die. No, not really. I do like talking to myself, though. But y'all are welcome to come by and join in :3

I'mma prolly use this blog to ramble aimlessly or to contemplate life...
