- 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 deviantART,...
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 of that...
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 pieces
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 or to overanalyze...
