      @dizzyblinker and @Joe said some really nice things to me not long ago on Twitter. I never feel like just saying thanks is enough, and they are very cool people, so I did these!

    • Raven Returns

      2 months ago

      Lamkia

      For me this RTX was....different. Unlike the past two years where I was incredibly sad the fun had ended, I was much more meditative afterwards and my mindset shifted towards being happy for what had been. This year challenged me in ways I didn't think it would. I was put out of my element quite a bit, like staying in a real hotel, eating in real restaurants, being on a panel, attending the con as a community admin, and getting different forms of attention I wasn't used to. I think I handled it alright? Where I made a fool of myself I at least entertained some people maybe real marble countertops in a hotel??


      Anyway a short summary is that I had lots of fun with (but probably annoyed the heck outta) @Kikyobutt and buddy @teFlyingNinj , I met a lot of people from the online community irl for the first time (including people from the Rec Room and RT World) which is always a magical moment, got to see my spectacular OCC people, was on a panel, found a really neat store with Japanese imported art books in the outskirts of town (spent 2 hours looking through their merch), and cosplayed as Raven again. I accidentally left my perfect school girl skirt behind while packing, making me improvise and use a black tank top instead. @Treanomaly appropriately dubbed me "tank ass".



      Speaking of which....


      I want to show off a thing.
      The most significant change to the cosplay was the addition of her weapon. Last year I tried something new and made props for the first time, making her mask out of cardboard and epoxy. This year I wanted to push myself a little further and make her sword and sheath, and with moving parts!


      My original plan was to just make it an extendable blade but, after a suggestion from @runick00 , I decided to make the cylinder spinny and have it contain interchangeable blades simulating the change in dust colors.


      First step: Sketch, simplification, determining measurements (mostly so it would fit in my suitcase)
      I took apart two spinners for the ball bearings for spinability, worked out great

      Next: Creating the cylinder, the most tedious work. Used a poster tube, shish kebab sticks, cardboard, tried the yoga mat (prefer cardboard), and lots of spackle


      unknown.png


      Getting the frame together: I had my uncle put the wooden frame together since he knows basic carpentry

      TenseFlashyAmericanlobster-size_restrict


      Turning a frame into a box: More cardboard and lots of wood glue


      unknown.png


      Detailing: I made a "raiser" to hide magnets in the top. The idea was to get the hilt to stick to the top of the sheath magnetically when not in use, but I severely overestimated the strength of the magnets ;-; Add the doohickies on the side, which was foam wrapped in packaging tape (packaging tape is holy tape)


      unknown.png

      unknown.png


      Epoxy!: Shiny, but more importantly it strengthens the whole body so it's not just flimsy cardboard

      But also shiny


      unknown.png


      Paint: The black is a enamel spray paint, which I touched once or twice accidentally while wet (shoot me), the silver is basic acrylic paint. I then sprayed it with 2 or 3 coats of a matte sealant, photo taken directly after the last coat....3 hours before my flight

      The sheath did get some bumps and bruises, but overall for my second prop I'd say not too shabby



      I didn't get enough time to make the feathers to pass out but besides that, all and all, a great RTX~

      Great, because I don't have time to write a proper one. So here it is in small bite size pieces.


      - I am going to be on a panel!

      It's Sunday at noon, and I'll be there with my OCC buddies.


      - My Raven cosplay will be making an appearance once again, this time with a very cool weapon. Right this moment I'm waiting for one of the final layers of epoxy to dry, excite!


      Sneak preview :

      - I'll be giving out a bunch of feathers with neat designs on them. This is a test one, but the ones I hand out (if I get to it in time) will be much more legible

    • Feeling Lonely?

      5 months ago

      Lamkia

      The Discord server Rec Room, which stemmed from the original RT Community Gamer's group, has a squeaky new spot after a recent rebuild for people to join in on. 

      The group is RT community based and there are conversations there throughout the day with regular game nights, and sometimes even movie nights. They're a cool bunch. Sometimes weird, but cool.


      So if you feel like you need a new place to hang or want to expand your circle a little, join ussss.




      Besides that I'll slip this in here. There was a really pretty vase of apple blossoms in my grandma's kitchen and I felt like I had to paint it for some reason. Needed a breather from school work anyway, and I also need to work on my digital painting skillz so all the better.

      Maybe 10 hours total over 3 days, Photoshop CS5. The flowers were pretty much wilted for the last 3 or 4 hours so I winged some parts and the highlights. Now to stow away my trusty tablet for 2 months to do school work.


      I don't have them often, maybe 3 or 4 times a year, but I like having flowers in vases every once in a while. Do any of you ever have fresh flowers around, just cause?

    • Shadow

      6 months ago

      Lamkia

      Companion piece to the Animus one


      The shadow is simply the black side of someone's personality. It comprises everything one repressed because is rejected by his superego.


      Not as much thought went into this one so nothing to explain other than "I did whatever I thought was prettiest". Now that I'm rereading the idea of shadow, I really wish I had considered the "repressed" part more, although the only things I can think of that might represent my repressed ideas wouldn't pair well with the fox (it'd be some sort of Slavic deity since no animals come close). Damn, well this works using personal reasons and my own associations anyway.

      For about 10% of the time I made this I struggled with animating some feathers on my neck before scrapping that section completely. Turns out having feathers just on your neck looks slightly kinda weird.


      Maybe I'll stop drawing myself now.

      Probably not.

    • Back to Basics / Animus

      7 months ago

      Lamkia

      Over the past two months I have dropped some bad habits, one or two of which I realized were incredibly self destructive, and replaced them with habits that are doing me much better. It's motivated me to start over in some areas, which has given me some much needed reflection.


      One thing is drawing. I feel like I've gotten much better in general, but don't have the work to show it, so I tried doing some basic self portraits again using a mirror after a long time.


      tumblr_p56enpqVXB1s19vaco1_500.jpg

      tA38L2G.jpg


      Then, this week I've been studying for a literary interpretation class and one of the topics is based off of Jung's work in psychology, specifically with archetypes. There were some ideas I thought were interesting and helped to see things from a different perspective, both in lit and inwards. What really caught my eye was the idea of anima and animus.


      Animus is the [masculine] archetype of reason and spirit in women. When identified with the animus, women develop an excessive rational drive which may end up in excessive criticism and stubbornness.This also heavily influences a woman's interaction with men and her attitudes toward them.
      The process of animus development deals with cultivating an independent and non-socially subjugated idea of self. ....[When successful,] she is more internally aware of what she believes and feels, and is more capable of expressing these beliefs and feelings
      This is the male aspect of the female psyche, as the anima is the female aspect of male psyche (related to sensitivity, sensuality, intuition, creativity)


      So combining the two themes above, self portrait and animus:


      NBJvG8r.gif


      (on tumblr and twitter)


      Some stills that work well as stand alone portraits:


      M6REM47.jpg

      u8E9sjF.jpg

      k9tjkH5.jpg

      I went back and forth between a few different options for my animus, including Slavic deity Černoboh ("black god" associated with evil) and a German shepherd, but settled on a fox for their infamous trickster stereotype, because of my experiences with the story of The Fox and the Crow, and other aspects that make me think it reflects some of (what would be) my animus's values. And I think foxes are kinda cool ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 


      With this one I also tried to pay more attention to composition and movement, with the red crossing the face and neck appropriately and the red stretching down counters the mist rising above. I dunno this is me pretending I know stuff about composition and doodads.

      I may do one for Jung's archetype of Shadow and make it a diptych piece, maybe as a crow to be like the story

      Guess that's it for these. Do you guys have any ideas for your own anima/animus?

      guláš/goulash, though. Can I pass with that?


      Not quite.  Goulash vs Gumbo..... I live in the northern USA so I am familiar with Goulash.  But I have family on the Louisiana gulf that have taught me to cook Cajun.  


      And though I love my dad's family goulash.... it does not hold a candle to my mother's,  aunt's GUMBO.  


      I wish  I had my Aunt's Gumbo recipe.  

      I love to cook and her gumbo is the best I have ever had.


      Now maybe it is not the best in the WORLD!!

      But it is the best to me because it is a 3 generation recipe made with family love.

        Well the guláš I have in mind isn't the same as what is served in the US. Czech guláš is essentially a soup with potatoes, beef, peppers, and a tomato based broth. That's not to mean that it is any closer to gumbo, but I would definitely like to try it sometime c:

  • Questions answered by Lamkia

    Can't say I have, no, but I'm sure it's good! I'm from the way Northeast (I'm basically Canadian) so there wasn't much of it around. I've had the Czech equivalent which is guláš/goulash, though. Can I pass with that?

    First reaction to question: Holy shit that is very specific.


    Feather pens look cool and all, but I wouldn't be able to stand the orange ink. In which case hands down I'd take the mask. I probably wouldn't use it a whole lot because I'm never really tempted by those types of x-ray vision scenarios (I really don't need to see nor care about people dicking around in their own places) but I reckon a situation will come by at some point to prove handy.


    Also who is this old woman and were is she getting these mystical items from? Can I choose her? I want her. She can randomly hand me magic things and I'll go oooohh aaahhh at them.

    Fish or Chicken?

    | Asked by: XOAnimeXO 1 year ago

    As a roommate: Definitely a fish

    As a sibling: A chicken

    As a lunch choice: Always and forever chicken

    Vanilla or chocolate?

    | Asked by: Hanako23 1 year ago

    I mean I'd rather eat chocolate than the dried up seed pods of Mexican orchids.


    Ice cream? Neither, I'm one of few that isn't too keen on ice cream. If so, strawberry is where it's at.

    (Oops completely forgot about this, my b)


    Realistic answer: I'd like to teach an art program that covers a variety of mediums. Not just traditional figure drawing but also digital typography, simple animation, etc.


    Unrealistic answer: I'd love to teach a class called How to Create, Maintain, and Properly Join a Line at Train Station Ticket Windows because apparently the people of Olomouc have no idea how lines work. The name of the school would be The Ideal World Academy.

    Oh wow, thank you <3
    Specifically for digital art, a drawing tablet is pretty much 100% necessary for the stuff I do, mice are inaccurate and really unnatural. Pretty much all of my drawings are done in Photoshop or Fire Alpaca (an awesome free alternative to Ps!), but I know some people that never touch Ps and use something like SAI or Corel instead. I find process videos of digital art to be really helpful for learning program functions in a practical context. But for the very basics, I'm sure there are tons of videos on YouTube that can explain them 6163464641 times better than me. I know almost all the ins and outs of Ps because I've been using it and teaching myself since I was 12, mostly by accidentally hitting keys and figuring out what they do.


    I usually do a hand sketch first and then take a terrible picture of it with my phone and trace it in Ps, but lately I've been doing everything digitally but it just doesn't feel as natural as having a pencil and paper. :l


    I also find it really important to collect images that I like from the internet. I constantly revisit them to see what I like about them and if I can incorporate it into my drawing. I've got a big folder with ~26,000 images (heh) and then a smaller one with ones I really have a liking for with about 100 images.


    Hm, I think that's all I can think of for right now that isn't obvious, like to keep at it and practice.
    TLDR: I guess the videos are best for learning functions and then studying other people's work to learn how to use those functions is the best method. Hope it helps at least a little!~
