(Note as of 3/10/2002: this is the original page that's been sitting around
for about a year and a half now. I haven't changed anything besides adding
this line and poking the page title. All the stuff here is very, very
old. Just keep that in mind.
I get bored. And when I get bored, madness ensues. Specifically (in this case, anyway), artistic madness.
Below are some of the more notable artisticky things I've done, in thumbnail form. Some are awful; some are good; and some are pretty darn spiffy. These are, of course, all my opinions. I don't claim to be an artist. I'm just a weirdo with a paint program or two.
Most of my recent (and ofttimes better!) work has something to do with Snail Dust. You could give it a look-see if ya wanted.
|1. The 'Ka-Tet', my starship in a (pretty much defunct) text-based game called Empire.|
|2. "The Darkling One": I'm not sure whether this is my pitiful attempt at Goth-style mysticism or at Japanimation. However, it pretty much conclusively proves I should not try my hand at either one.|
|3. "Fairy Ring": this thing started out from a picture of my cat's face. Please don't ask. You don't want to know.|
|4. View of my domed city in the aforementioned Empire. I rather like this one. Worked darn hard on it, too.|
|5. Conceptual picture thing of my (summarily nuked with no warning and for no reason... blah) character in Empire, the Baroness Napoleon. She's a gunslinger. Good for her!|
|6. A pink rose. Not much behind this one.|
|7. Drawing thing of the roof of an imaginary bar called the Traveller's Rest. The light blue thing is a skylight. The dark blue and purple stuff is grass.|
|8. This is... well, I'm not sure what it is. Sort of a sun, I guess, with clouds wisped around it. Or a fly's eye. I can't decide. It's one of my favorites, though, precisely because I don't know what the heck it is.|
|9. The Dark Tower. If you know what it is, no explanation is needed. If you don't know, get thee to the bookstore -- you've got some Stephen King to read!|
|10. I think this is a sunflower. It's pretty disturbing, though, because, like "Fairy Ring," it started out as a picture of my cat's face...|
|11. This is my favorite, simply because I created it while in an uncharacteristic mood of depression, and so it's all nifty and weird. There's even a little story behind it. It depicts a hillside burning. The person who set it on fire did so because it had once been a special place for her, but now it felt empty, and so she wanted to destroy it. Twisted, no?|
|12. Maurice the dragonfly. A friend asked me to draw this one for him; unlike the rest of the stuff on this page (so far, anyway), Maurice was not entirely done on the computer. I just digitally touched him up a bit here and there. Mostly, he's just ordinary pencil and watercolor, scanned for posterity.|
|13. "The Black Vote." The voting box has a 13 on it, so it's file 13, and it's mocking with the tongueness, and... yeah. First image I ever did with all the nifty features in PSP.|
|14. Another one that actually exists in real life. This is a pen-and-ink rendering of the Mansion, which anyone who's read The Waste Lands (by Stephen King, of course!) will find familiar. What's interesting is that the house I used for the basis of this was featured in the background of a Buick ad... and I've gone and turned it into a haunted mansion! It didn't scan too terribly well, but here it is. Be assured it looks better in real life.|
|15. Watercolor flower thingy. No, it's not a rose (though it is quite roselike). I forget the name, but it was long and fancy-sounding.|
