FantasyBLOCK: Having Artist’s Block? Theres a app for that (I just made it)

Artblock

I was needing inspiration as I was having wonderful art block. Then I remembered I bought this book a while back called “Fantasy Genesis: A Creativity Game for Fantasy Artist by Chuck Lucas. You role dice and you match up the numbers to different words in different categories with the dice roles. As a exercise you attempt to draw what the words give you.The only problem is that you need DnD dice to use it. I lost mine. I looked for generators on the net but they were more geared to characters for RPG games. So I decided to make my own generator. And spent two hours programing this when I probably could of done something elsev (Like play Dark Souls):D. It’s rather rudimentary but it gets the job done. It can be used in conjunction with the book but it’s not required (Although I would recommend checking the book out at least).  You welcome to use it for your own needs if you wish. If you know someone that could benefit with this program, Please share this post with them. If you find this app useful, please like this post.

The download link is here, you need at least Windows XP (or better) or Linux with Wine to run it: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7Fgk8uRVlgSejd1Q0dESWRaNGc/edit?usp=sharing

Dragon Marker Speed Sketch with Demonstration Video

I was asked previously to show my sketching process. I decided to draw something that I draw often for practice and that is a dragon’s head. The demonstration is in real time and not sped up. I drew completely out of my imagination. The video runs for around 19-20 minutes and features some strange ambient music I created using Nodebeat. I am thinking of uploading some more demonstrations (perhaps my digital painting process if I ever can save up for FRAPS) and even some tutorials in the future.

The markers I used are : A Ultra Fine Sharpie, Sketch and Wide Copic markers W3, and a cool gray set of Spectrim Noir alcoholic markers.

Here is the finished sketch:

Sketches: Sheep, a Rock, Dragon from a excerise, Self Portrait Excerise

The best sketches from the last couple days. Someday I will upload  my sketches to dragonsketches.wordpress.com.

First was a suggested exercise in a Bob Eggleton to draw yourself as a dragon. So here it is. It’s not the first time I attempted it, it’s the second time. here is the first https://maugryph.com/2012/10/24/dragon-self-portrait/

First was a study of  two dragons from a Bob Eggleton book.

Then a light study of a sheep and a rock. exciting.
