Reviving an old and beloved original character! You’ll be seeing more of this guy and his world. Just finished this pencil sketch.  Sadly I have to focus hardcore on freelance for the next few days, but I’m eager to return to this (and get it painted in Photoderp!) and other illustrations... including an exciting collaboration with a fellow Deviant artist ovo :o :D

Artist's Notes:

Still life painted digitally from observation. Was playing around with this one for awhile, and was going to make it more detailed, but I decided that I prefer how it looks when painterly, undefined areas are combined with more polished, finished surfaces. Gonna keep doing still lives, but will try to keep em quick and dirty-- it's more fun that way!

Hi, I'm Irina Ari! I'm an aspiring artist in the field of concept art and illustration for the video game industry. Ultimately, I would love to be an art director and independent game developer.

I received my BFA in Visual Arts from Mason Gross School of Arts (Rutgers University) earlier in 2014. There I focused for my first three years on traditional painting and drawing, but as classes became available I took an interest in film, production and direction, costume design, animation and 3D. So far I've produced and received awards for one short film and a co-produced animation short.

I can admit, I may not currently have as much experience with concept art and illustration as others who went to schools with a focus in it, but I value the unique experience I already have, and am rigorously practicing and building a whole new portfolio.

My video game soul mates are Fumito Ueda's "Ico" and "Shadow of the Colossus," and if I had to pick one artist who inspires and motivates me to do more, it's Noah Bradley.

Ooooh~,  your art is SO pretty (and it resembles you; I don't know if that sounds strange, but it's a bit hard to fully explain), and of course it would be! You made sure you studied your craft to a T! Thank you so much for your favorites on much more underwhelming pieces! :icontinoplz: If I could color your way...:iconmiseryplz:
