 an art thread by Kinarii


So it's been quite a while since last I was here. A lot (and I mean a lot) has happened in that span of time, including large quantities of art. I figured I'd start over with a brand new gallery since there is so much new stuff to share!

For the new folks here who are unfamiliar with me or my art, I'm Kinarii (Kina for short). I am a long-time artist and old PC-er that drifts back here from time to time to share what I have with the nice folks of the forums. I almost never do fanart, and choose instead to draw and paint as a means of expressing feelings or some highly personal allegories, often using dragons and other things as symbols for real people. The most common media I use are pencils/colored pencils, watercolors, and good ol' Photoshop, but I've picked up just about everything you can think of, from pixels to sculpting/3D modeling to handmade books to animation and beyond. I just love art!

If you are interested in my work I also have a deviantART, a sketch blog, a YouTube channel, and a Newgrounds account that you can check out!


Hover over each piece for the title; click to enlarge. There is also more stuff throughout the thread that isn't in this post!

I absolutely love the last two pictures. <33

I love your work, I see you use more than one material to make different styles. The first picture, were you using oil pastels? I used them before, and the texture looks very similar. =o

I WANNA SEE MORE ART. <333

That first one is colored pencil on illustration board. Pastels are something I have not tried (at least since elementary art classes once upon a time), but yes, I do enjoy many different media. That second one I did with coffee and felt-tip pens :3

The last two are messages of sorts to a special person. In truth, all this stuff here is about him, but those are manifestations of specific sentiments, and are meant to be a bit more special ♥

I absolutely love what you did with Creation- splatter's have always been my favorite, but this is just perfect! The flow is great and I must say it reminds me a bit of the Gulf Spill, though I don't know if this was intended or not. xD

Really great work, your skill with traditional mediums is to die for! I cannot wait to see more! >u<//

Thank you so much! Always nice to see commentary here :3

I love splatters, too. I plan to use them more once I shift back into watercolor again. The intent behind Creation was actually creation itself, as in creating a universe. It does look an awful lot like oil, though, now that you mention it X3

Here's some studies I did of birds in preparation for designing a phoenix character for a short film I'm planning. Already have one thing drawn up but I'll wait till I have more to post again.

Here's a car I modeled in Maya for a class over the past few weeks. As usual, click the picture for all the lovely detail :3

Sheesh, nothing changes around here, does it? >.>

Anywho, here's some more stuff!




Super low-poly model made to be a papercraft T. Rex mask. Photo of me wearing it here.


    

A character I modeled for the same Maya class as the car.




Another drawing of that dragon I had to get out of my system last week with some new Prismacolor pencils.




Some action pose gestures of a male character for drawing class (also with Prismacolor pencils).


... Also, thousandth post! :3

Thanks so much, guys! :D

@Touko - Yes, I did (with Prismacolor markers). I always use my own art in my sigs/avis and stuff :3



This guy here is from back in January. We had a big ol' snow-in for like half a week so I spent a couple of days designing and building a papercraft ♥

Yay! Thanks a bunch, Maddy! :3

Also, here are some more pictures:

    

These were done with French gray Prismacolor markers but I of course did stuff to them in Photoshop as usual.

Last night I felt utterly compelled to paint this, and just finished a bit ago. Been a while since I did a digital piece. As usual, hover for title; click to enlarge.

Oh, PC. >.>

Herp derp. Here's something more serious - I'm working on this species design so I can model and rig one for my portfolio for when I graduate. You can read all about it in the full blog post these pictures are from. I did these illustrations with Prismacolor colored pencils and then used some Photoshop magic for the rest.

I love this picture, PEOPLE LETS COMMENT ON SOME OF HER AWESOME WORK.

Well, I love the depth here, and how the feathers of the wing were given details. I would suggest a yellow or orange color to the beck, possibly the legs as well. It just looks a little weird without some color to it other than white, but maybe that's just me. xD I really like clouds. I might suggested to add some cyan and white colors, though. The clouds look faded out, and sorta looks like fog. =o

BUT YEAH, GREAT WORK. ~

Thank you, Ana!

That bird there is a phoenix whose origin I've written up and may post somewhere at some point. Basically it involves a dawnbringer calling the sun in this dead valley that never saw light, and the energy from the sun was so potent there that it soaked into the ground and erupted out a dead volcano in the middle of the valley and turned into a pure white tree, which bore a fruit which was the egg from which she was born. Horrible run-on sentence there, but that's the gist of it. I have indeed been toying with the idea of giving her some accent color somewhere, and this is by no means her final design. I haven't totally worked her out yet at all actually, but she needed to be the star of this piece :3

Thought I'd share a still render of a 3D animation project I'm working on called Pencil Love - also known as How to Tell a Fellow CG Artist You Love Him. X3

Here's some more dawnbringers I drew tonight. Still working on the design.


What's a non-fanartist gotta do to get some comments around here? >.>
