Glenn by nick1213mc
Finished this portrait of Glenn for Walker Stalker Con! Spent a good while on it, but I enjoyed getting it done. And I got it signed by Steven Yeun at the convention!…

You can see the autograph right there. If any of you have a chance to attend a Walker Stalker Con, I highly recommend it! It's a great time!

Total Time:
Probably close to about 12-15 hours?


Pencil (4B-8B)
Blending Stumps

And I just made a Twitter, where I shall be posting my artwork, which is also available on Redbubble under the same username as here. That's right, I'm joining the social media craze, y'all. Albeit a few years late. But better late than never!


Dad? by nick1213mc

My first digital portrait. I want to do a series of my absolute favorite moments in TV, Movies, and games almost "remastered" in a digital painting. First I chose was a huge moment in The Walking Dead.

Spoilers as I said before

But I chose the scene where during the fall of Alexandria, Carl loses his eye. The scene when it reveals his eye was shot out, and he slowly tilts his head up, then just says "Dad?", it was haunting. And I loved it. So I wanted to do a portrait for it. This was my first ever purely digital portrait. I made it in Photoshop with a tablet, and used one of the default fan brushes.

Life is Strange by nick1213mc
Life is Strange

So.... this has been the bane of my existence for the past few weeks. At my school, there is a class I took which is essentially "Make a project for yourself and do it". Around that time, I was in the thick of playing the masterful game, Life is Strange by DONTNOD Entertainment. I wanted to do another (what I coined) "Conceptual drawing", which is essentially a tribute to a movie/game/show etc  I love and I interlace symbolism into damn near every detail I create. This one here I was foaming at the mouth with ideas and wrote them all down (that comes into play later).

This was my first ever digital portrait/drawing/thing. I used the Wacom Intuos Pro tablet at school for the whole thing and some filters for texture. This took me at the absolute bare minimum 60 hours. I would work on it during lunch every day for an hour, work on it for two hours in between class every day, and come in on my days off to work on it some. And at home as well. I wanted to make this the best I possibly could, and tribute not only the game itself but DONTNOD for making something so brilliant that really stuck with me. Not only for it being a fantastic game, but for how much it relates to real life and the lessons we can learn from it and how it applies to your own life.

There is a *lot* of symbolism in here. Even something so small as Max's hand position was specifically chosen and designed to mean something. If this does well, and I have time, I'll type that up so you all can enjoy the novel of symbolism and long as hell ramble. 

And my professor came up with a great idea, which is that I should scan my notes on this picture and put them as almost an "overlayed filter" over it all. My notes had quotes from Edward Lorenz, creator of the "Butterfly Effect" and "Chaos Theory" which is what this game is centralized around. And all the other notes are faintly visible, creating a very neat effect, I find. 

And it goes without saying that none of the characters or anything related to the game belong to me. It is fan art after all.

At the minimum, 60 hours

None for once!

Hope you like it!
