I have finally gathered up the courage to sit down wherever I might be and sketch a portrait of anyone unfortunate enough to be facing me.
Refills + Brush Pens
Definitely my favourite part of Pretoria
I don’t play computer games, in fact angry birds friends is the only tablet game that I play. I do however have a cousin with a 10GB ram gaming computer who plays fallout. Now this is a rather unique game because it is not just about fighting for survival in a post nuclear appocolapse world, but also about appreciating the numerous Monty Python references, the Nuka Cola posters resembling old Coca Cola ads, the USS Constitution -with NX 42 rocket- boosters sitting on top of the remains of Wheatherby Savings and Loans, and a steampunk airship named after King Arthur’s ship (which appears in only two known texts). After two hundred years all remaining bottles of Nuka Cola are flat and mildly radioactive, but only Nuka Cola Quantum has that signature blue glow.
I’ve been VERY busy with school the last week or so but I’ve managed to find time to experiment with 3D drawing in Blender, an open source 3D art, animation, and game creation program. Thus far I’ve only ran a few fluid simulations (and managed to crash my computer) and played around with infinite mirrors (almost crashed my computer; numerous power faliures, 8 years of dodgy junk and hidden files, 100GB of flight simulator, and over 100GB of photos have slowed it down considerably).
Anyway, I’ve decided to start big with my first blender artwork and build the 3D version of this drawing. The inspiration came from a love of airships (note the fishing boat) and the kennings ‘whale road’ and ‘sky candle’.
