    Oh yeah @[email protected] I totally know what that' like lol..
    I continued on with 2D though because it helped me improve my drawing skills a lot more.. and I enjoyed it and it also helped a lot with design work. You can find a job in 3D with a 2D animation reel.. but you can't find 2D animation work with a 3D reel (or rather.. it's rarer).. they need to see the drawings. So that's why I continued on my 2D route while still learning 3D too :3

    Oh man! :3 Even though you don't have an HDR cam, have you ever tried taking a photo of yourself and drawing your creatures/ creations like.. in the picture with you? :3 That'd be super awesome!!

    :3 Haha.. that is an awesome dream! Keep it and it'll keep you going! Make sure he doesn't break your heart, though! I'm not assuming you like him.. but I had a great friend and muse that I developed a crush over overtime.. and he totally broke my heart and it was tough for me to find the right inspiration for the longest time since drawing reminded me of him. I've got the art groove back for a while now though but it was a very tough time when it had lasted .O.!
    I looked up his stuff though.. and I can see where you get your inspiration! He is a very exceptional modeler and you have good judgement to look up to him :3
    Nambroth is also a very talented painter :33 And yeah *_* Glen Keane is also a god of mine! Haha :3 I can see what she means especially recently when he was directing Tangled.. he made some very whimsical art for that film :3 I love how he's about bold strokes and really FEELING his characters <33

    Yeah good idea haha.. :3 Your artthread best be left to mostly art.

    :3 Yeah I found your blog through your deviantart haha! :3 Lovely stuff!! <3 And feel free to add me to your LinkedIn if you'd like :3 I love connecting to people!!

    It's a bummer about your school though.. but it's so good that the teachers are great. Our teachers for the most part are good.. but then we get the occasional horrible one.. >_> and by horrible I mean HORRIBLE. Hence why I learned modeling wrong.. she never taught us about quads or low poly versions or anything. She told us that smoothing was bad so here we were trying to make everything super smooth under low resolution and it was just messy and crazy :/ But yeah.. budget cuts are worse! It really is up to the students though.. like we had some great facilities.. but we have the kids who never come to class or try to take advantage of everything :/ or just.. hand in projects two months late and stuff.. and the teachers feel bad and mark it anyways.. >_> Blah..

    @[email protected] I wish we actually learned Flash more. A lot of places are hiring only if you have flash knowledge :/ and to be honest.. I don't like flash stuff most of the time.. :/ There's toonboom too.. but it's tough to find a studio that does only hand-drawn stuff. There are still some great ones though. I started transitioning more to 3D when I realized this.. so yep.. that's where I'm at :3 I'm in games right now and I'm pretty happy. It's fun and challenging at the same time and I love it. To me there's not a huge difference between the two.. as they're really starting to bridge the gap between them.

    :3 My passion has been drawing and painting growing up too. I got into animation when I discovered that I loved drawing figures and designing and posing out the figure more than I did illustrating.. so I took some film editing courses in highschool along with art classes (there was no 3d or flash offered) and I got into 2D anim at Sheridan.

    @[email protected] Wow! That is so awesome to meet your muse! I had a few muses that I've met.. and it's just so cool to be able to talk to them and get their perspective :3 May I ask who they are? @[email protected] My favourite artist is Saskia Gutekunst.. I got the Queen of Hearts artbook where she's featured in.. I absolutely love her stuff to bits!

    I think it's amazing how someone can just inspire you to create like that. And yeah I do that too! You should see my pictures folder on my computer.. filled with so much haha! It's so great to see someone's love for art coming through all their pieces and I can definitely see it in yours.

    I love how your style almost has an ethereal quality to it.. like it has this light playful spiritualness to it and it makes your characters really believable. :3

    And heck the industry really is a small world! Who knows! Perhaps we may end up working together someday! It'd be pretty cool haha :3 I definitely wouldn't mind working with you since you're so talented!

    Anyways.. yeah.. like I said before.. teachers and school can be a lot of help, but they can only do so much. :/ It's a bummer you don't have the best facilities.. but as long as you're willing to take the initiative to grow as your own artist you will be absolutely fine :3 And yeah like I said you're on the right path and you've got some great portfolio pieces under your belt already <3

    And haha.. >_> Same here.. I rarely post poke-art-related stuff anymore :3 but sometimes I'll do a little doodle or so and put it up haha :3

    Anyways I enjoy chatting with you :333

    You're welcome!

    The "OMG YOUR ART" emblem is practically like a master's approval. Ana's really good at spotting great art, so yeeeeah. (Thanks to another forum, I knew her before I joined PC. zomg she's so talented.)

    I feel like I'd need a few backup plans, just 'cause. Pre-med is just so discouraging sometimes, though I'm not too worried about the grades--it's just the whole environment of it.

    I end up writing more than 90% of other Tumblr users and i never reblog macro posts so my blog ends up not looking like anyone elses' heh. I haven't found equilibrium in what to post and when, though, but I also don't really need that. What are you going to use your website for? ;D

    Anyway, I came here because I stumbled upon your art in the Art Gallery.

    I've never been an artsy person (so I'm bad with criticizing stuff and whatnot), but I think your art is pretty good! ^^

    (I would have been more specific with what I liked, but as aforementioned, I'm not good with that kind of stuff. :<)

About Me

  • About Amaruuk
    Biography
    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!

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...
