Planetary sled by reivax
Planetary sled
This is my vehicle project for my digital painting class. I came up with a vehicle that is transported to other planets by a space pod -- like the one in the background. In these sled-type vehicles, research teams visit other planets to observe and study them. I wanted the vehicle to look like it had been through some stuff, so I added a rough-looking texture and decided to describe the form with panels and other details. It has a claw hand for picking up small objects and a periscope-type viewer above the claw hand. The green details on the ski part are part of the traction. Overall, I liked how this came out and was glad that I decided to do something that didn't take forever.

Hey guys, I just thought I'd post the preview of BAAU Down 14, which is coming out next month: sites.google.com/site/baaubaya…

I'm listed on page 141 and have contributed a sculpture submission. I may even post that here if I can post InDesign files. Or perhaps I'll just convert it. Either way, I'm excited that my artwork has been featured in a publication for the first time. I'll let you guys know when it's released when I know for sure.

So I will be attending the Big Wow Comicfest 2015 in downtown San Jose tomorrow with my mom, which I'm looking forward to. I'm caught up enough on my school work to where I can attend it. Wen may attend a panel or two kind of depends on what time we get there and how that all works out. My mom originally didn't want to go, but I kind of talked her into it and I paid for both our tickets, so she doesn't have to buy her's. Even if we don't manage to attend a panel, we'll have a good time regardless.  I also plan to meet some guests, including Tim Truman, Rick Veitch, and Steve Bissette and have 'em sign some stuff. I also plan to talk to Chris Moreno, Daniel Vest, and Robin Holstein since they've all worked in the digital arts field, so perhaps I can network with them. That's all I have to say for now, but I'll take probably take of pictures and post them on my blog.
Tech challenge by reivax
Tech challenge
I did this for my digital painting class. We had to take nine different materials and render them. I rendered glass, metal, wood/tree bark, a rock, fur, leather, a gem, scales, and an eye. While I enjoyed doing this assignment, I found it to be rather time consuming like most digital painting work I've done.

Primitive creature by reivax
Primitive creature
This is my second project for my digital painting class where we had to come up with a creature and put it in an environment that made sense. I decided to do an asymmetrical ape-like creature because I wanted to do something that stood out and didn't look generic, which resulted from playing with silhouettes. After working on this after having it critiqued, I was happy with how it came out.

In terms of creativity, I'm mostly a do-it-yourselfer. I find myself enjoying the simple pleasures in life whenever possible and I like to make people laugh. Not only am I blessed with what I have, but I tend to have a positive outlook. Art is something I enjoy and I hope to make a living out of it some day. The thought of working for a big corporation and not doing what I wanna do disgusts me, though.

Current Residence: San Jose, CA
Favourite genre of music: Pretty much anything
Favourite photographer: Sure, whatever.
Favourite style of art: comic, surreal, and street art
Operating System: Windows 8
MP3 player of choice: iPod Nano
Skin of choice: My skin is just fine.
Favourite cartoon character: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
Personal Quote: Life at best is bittersweet.
