And not in black, just awesomer and stuff~
Then ¿What happened?
I don’t know, I just know that I just barely regained my strength to be active again (and remembered the password, lawl).
A lot of things happened, had a job for two years, got bored of it, decided to travel for new adventures and learning to live, basically to look for happiness.
I’m having success and I won’t stop until I fulfill my goals, I am attempting to study college again, this time with good teachers and good stuff, UNAM is the name, I am also moving to México City (don’t you say…) with my bro Jake and his mother, we are attempting to live on ourselves in a single house and divide the expenses and stuff, which sounds great to me!
I am very excited to make this happen and I am doing what I can with my artwork, which, I have recently started to draw again! Yep :3
Many things happened… things that made me sad… and others that made me happy! Which I am embracing right now even after some recent events that weakened me greatly, I am on my feet again, this is what I learned and this is how I demonstrate I am alive and that I am going to take over the world.
Well, okay, let’s add new artwork!
First of all, my recent pride, Leona, made not long ago this very year :3
¡I will be adding more artwork more constantly!
I miss Windows XP.
My computer got owned, I just don’t have Windows anymore.
I was unable to even format my disc drive, or to install Windows again, needed to do it with Ubuntu, and this is my “new” forced OS now. Can’t draw, can’t design, can’t do anything besides surf and chat. This is boring, this is… ugh, I can’t do anything. I can’t install Windows anymore.
I’ll save money to get a new computer… -_- here comes… months without drawing or designing my personal stuff.
BoneFreakOzzy requested an Art Trade with me and I agreed.
I did not knew he already started doing it and I was taking my time to think and ask him what would he want to be drawn. Until he told me he was almost done with the drawing I was like: “…what? so soon?”
I picked up Ulven because I felt with the urge to draw more masculine character opposed to the plethora of girls I’ve been drawing.
He made a lovely drawing of Dyna Ikari and even myself, thanks a lot =D
Damn it, it’s too big!
And last, but not least (or less important), I’d like to share a Kiriban I won with Sadiek by spotting the desired pageviews.
¿Kiriban? Well, basically, a Kiriban is a Gift Art for people that meet certain requirements, given spotting a certain number (like pageviews) or having a “winner comment” in a journal. It’s like: “Congratulations, you are visitor number 35k!” and you get a drawing for free, courtesy of the house.
So yeah, I was her 15k visitor (4k visits ago), I understand she’s a busy person, she works and earns her money and is a working artist. I appreciate she gave me a place in her schedule for this drawing. Thank you.
I borrowed a lot of inspiration from Louten and his gallery, also his words encouraged me to pick the tablet once more and finish this illustration.
Thank you Wenynen for your lovely artwork, the outcome was very good and it’s great to see Dyna in a different style.
An extra drawing is also an Art Trade for Wolf da Lyprix.
He also made his own version of Dyna Ikari. (Image is too large to insert)
Dyna ‘Blade’ Ikari, she is one of the first characters I ever created 14-15 years ago. She serves as “adult image” and mentor to my other character, Mikerot Dash.
She is 28 years old and owns a huge heritage left by her family, consists in a museum-like house that has an armory with ancient pieces “abandoned” throughout history. Legendary weapons, armors, shields and other artifacts, even the ones that are claimed to be just myth she has them in possession.
She wields the legendary “Firebrand Edge“, a retractable longsword that can also summon fire and cut through most things.
Wise, focused and methodical, Dyna leads a School of Combat Sports with themes such as Fencing, Martial Arts, Boxing, Kick Boxing and she teaches most of the assignments.
Because of her unreal skill with the sword and a huge collection of blades, she got nicknamed “Blade” by her students and friends
Finding Mikerot has been one of the most bizarre encounters she ever had, because she found out he wasn’t even human, nor Alien, Mikerot was a true deity from higher realms, hidden in her middle-realm to prevent the end of days.
Under her protection and tutelage, Mikerot learned how to perform with various weapons and self handedly, also helped him to overcome his fears and become more calm and methodical. She claims Mikerot is her best student so far, but she is unsure if that’s because of his heritage.
As story progresses, Dyna becomes an Einherjar due to her magnificent ability to fight, but that leaves Mikerot alone… and bitter.
She continues to watch over her student, but also must stand true to her new job, which is to fight for Lord Odin and to protect Valhalla no matter what cost.
She was assigned to secretly support Mikerot, since he was a primary target of other godly enemies, such as the giants from Jotunheim and the fiends from Muspelheim, the Vanir. Using Mikerot would ensure the end of days, known as Rägnarok, and was Odin’s orders to protect Mikerot from being influenced or kidnapped by unknown fiends, this was to ensure survival of Asgard deities.
Her favorite color is red, she sleeps a lot, loves milkshakes and doesn’t like to sit down when talking to somebody, she stares at the eyes only, that kind of scares people away because her stare is too deep and intimidating, she means no harm though.
You’ve been wondering about the background ¿Maybe? Well, I’m about to upload it here in my blog to be appreciated directly.
Has small history, and it’s based on my first published artwork on deviantART, but it’s not really important, it was the result of being bored while waiting for my exams and maybe the music I was listening to in my iPod, but enough talk, here comes the new version of “The Hand of Fate“.
This is the homage for my old drawing, six years later, and yes, I know this looks exactly like an AutoMail.
