Fragment from the Corona of Sandrine I, First of Her Name, 11th Emperor of Zeta Sagitarii (“Udiy Sadira ζ Sgr”)

From “Extraplanetarium - Treasures Beyond Earth” The Royal Gallery

Yes, a girl can be emperor in other planets! Haha!

I used Zbrush to sculpt the crown, then finished up with a portrait painting. Been looking at a lot of art deco inspiration recently and I’ve always wanted to make a decorative headpiece for space opera royalty like the work of my idol, Iain McCaig, on Star Wars.


Patience, girl, we’re almost there.
But first…put some pants on!

Solo Ship progress
LOL, Ill prolly just paint the character in post. I’m super tired. My computer is tired. Seriously, I’m having the hardest time with rendering for presentation. At this point I’m still wrapping my head around the 3D software itself and not yet at a point where I’m producing finished work with Zbrush as just a tool that’s part of my process. I just wanna get these technical shenanigans out of the way so I can make art!

unhistorical:

…the Saints are displayed in a cathedral in Eastern Germany close to the Czech border and were acquired in the 17th century when there was a big trade in relics. They are said to be the remains of Martyred saints that were stored in the catacombs of Rome before being removed and traded. They were reassembled and dressed in their fine regalia and displayed in ornate cabinets.

As exercise, I’ll be sharing a drop of my inspiration folder each day for a month. The theme will remain unspoken and will be relaxed yet connected. Let me know what you think and if you’d like to suggest a topic :)

LOL. So this is how you make a snake more approachable, I guess :))


Sci-fi Ship WIP

Who wants to pilot my solo spacecraft? I was inspired to doodle spaceships after watching Guardians of the Galaxy. Anyway, proceeded to sculpt one of them for practice (and for class). This is a suuuper WIP. Need to do the blasters and afterburners, refine the chassis, plus the cockpit isn’t there yet.

Awesuuuum!

Open-ended musing on design and gender bias

Why are there fewer female than male concept artists? Does society influence creativity for little boys as shaped towards “hard” structural design VS creativity for little girls as shaped more towards aesthetics and drama (i.e., things deemed “soft” and “feminine”)?

Personally, I don’t see objects of design as “boyish things” or “girly things”. I see pure design, in form, structure and function, whether I am looking at a motorcycle, an AFV, a ball gown, a handbag or a house. A well-styled haircut for me is as much a structural challenge as it is an aesthetic one. 

In fact I think if you break down these superficial barriers for yourself and learn to appreciate the purity/essence of a design and its context, you’ll find that you can become a more well-rounded creative person. I know the best designers aren’t so insecure about exploring other territory just because other people might label them a “tomboy”, a “pansy”, or “gay” (And what’s wrong with that, anyway?) Or for a lot of girls, just because very few of them are in the playing field. 


Lego and Friends

We (meaning me and my imaginary friends) just finished building Lego Technic’s Excavator! I love this thing. The joints really work and it simulates piston-hydraulic motion with simple gear mechanisms! Lego breaks are always fun and relaxing :)

I think Leyendecker is a great example of the disciplined artist.
