Developing My Style

Just to get down to brass tax (tacks?, taqs???), here's my twitch and twitter, which I've been using to share streams of art and pieces I've done. I try and keep the content relevant, but I also discuss what's going on in my nursing career and my daily life.
I love learning about the lives others are living on a day-to-day basis, hopefully folks here have the same interest in mine!

So What Am I Working On?

I set out to build a video game, right? Yes, I did!
So where's the game? Well...here's the thing...

I love art, I love animating, I love film and I love story telling. For me, video games are a way to tell stories through a player (or players') interactions with the medium. So the core of my interest in game design is the same as that of everything else: Storytelling.

I'm learning how much I love creating art and creating assets, and while I've mentioned this in earlier blogposts here on dev.to, I've really been diving deep. I'm taking classes, I'm practicing, I'm streaming my art and talking about it; trying to generate an online presence so people can see what I'm making and tell me what they think.

And so this is what I've been up to...

Mom-Bob Anime Haircut
Ginger Hair Study
Original Character done early on
C.J. Cregg, West Wing

This is the sort of work I've been pumping out. I usually complete a few pieces a week. I'm focusing on developing specific skills. How does clothing rest on the body? How does hair move in the air? These studies have accelerated me along a path of success I had been hoping to cultivate and should have been trying to cultivate sooner.

And I'm sticking with it. I never say a lot here, writing long form is taxing for me because I think so much faster than I type. But if you're interested in what I'm working on day-to-day, jump into one of my late night streams or add my twitter to your social media. I'm always looking for new inspiration or to bask in the glow of other peoples' awesome content as well, so please send along any recommendations for artists, developers or other content creators that you yourselves adore.

Cheers and beers!
