Ourla, I'm glad you didn't listen to me. I took a page out of your book and staff were kind enough to approve a few things for me.  ;D

The deformed Black Scrab HG turned Bynner
(Pencils and cell shading by Gendron, colors and postwork by me.)



I did some other cityscape renders also, which are -here-.

Thanks! I'll give Gendron the credit for that. I can't rock an illustration like you guys. I stick to the digital side.

The Black Scrabs were a player created mini-clan, a while back.

I was going to write The famously deformed Black Scrab HG because it has a nice ring to it, but I thought "famous" would be a stretch, and he's wearing Byn insignia in the picture, so I thought that would confuse observant people, hence the weirdness.

So a friend of mine has some really cool sketches that I just noticed are very Armageddony. Album here.

I showed her the thread/docs and she sounded interested in doing a commission or three. Is anyone interested? If so let me know, I'll have her make an account!

Did a character portrait of our most famous character...

Yes. Read the thread if you want, or skip to page 7 and be dismissive.

Really an impressionist sculpture. Not classical, and definitely not modern. Really a fantastic job, Mal. You're one in a million.

Alas, poor Horatio. I knew him well. And he was reborn as a Mantis! Coolah!

Anybody taking money for art nowadays?
And then I sat there going "really? that was it? that's so stupid."

I still think the best closure you get in Armageddon is just moving on to the next character.

I'm pretty sure Ourla is/has been recently.  Maybe not anymore.  She did an awesome character portrait for me not too long back.  Too bad we can't put it on the site  :-\

Ourla got a swanky awesome new job. Not sure if she still does character portraits, but if so, I highly recommend her.

I still have my 2012 Githmas present from Ourla, It's the only bit of art my uncultured ass has on display, and it's amazing. Little note still with it, btw, because it's that special. But yhea, she's really good.

I've had work done by Ourla before. (It's on the website.) I was under the impression she was busy with life after talking to her in Portlandia.

I've been...toying...with the idea of doing commissions. They problem is, my bandwidth for doing so is low (as I have a hundred other projects on the burner) and obviously, the kind of stuff I would be doing is outside the norm (3D ain't for everyone - though, I can probably make it look like an approximation of just about any other kind of art, with some photoshopjitsu).

I might be interested in doing a very limited engagement, just to see if its something I want to keep doing.  The other problem is, I already have a stack of art I can't post because of IC limits. If I did decide to bite, I might initially only be interested in commissions that could be posted relatively soon (so I could give people a better idea of what to expect from such a commission).

I dunno. If 3D/my stuff doesn't turn you off, Friday, send me a PM. We can chat.
