Name: Ishida Varience (most people call him Ishi).
Height: 5 '10"
Powers: Invisibility( it would be a bit awkward it he made some people fall in love but every one saw him do it): it only lasts for a little while though as it takes up a lot of energy. Persuasion: he is able to convince people to do things is he wants to (eg. "hey ... can you buy me an ice cream from that shop over there?" "yeah sure!") it only lasts for a couple of minutes though as it's a new skill.
Personality: Ishida has a really bubbly personality and isn't really shy about saying things. He can be a bit of a coward though, and would rather talk through fights instead of using his fists (which is why he wants to go into weaponry so he can actually learn how to fight). If he has a serious personality then it usually means that something has gone wrong.
Background: Ishi grew up all over the place due to the fact that he though heaven was "boring" and that everyone was teasing him for his wing colour. He finds human behavior very interesting which is why he decided to travel the globe and learn as much as possible.His wings didn't help him get around unnoticed so he used to hide them under a jacket for a lot of the time. it was around this time that he found the Academy and decided to join to learn even more! He never really had friends before (except fro the random people that he met at coffee shops over the years) s0 he might be a little ( a lot) socially awkward for a while.
extra stuff: - Obsessed with musicals and animated movies. - Loves trying to prank people. - finds it fun to imagine how different people will go if they were couples (he can't help it, he's a Cherub!!) -has a slight french accent.
for some reason the picture flipped the wrong way round ! usually his hair and stuff would go the other way.
It's finished~ And what's this, a background?! It was actually a scene from the game, just outside Hyrule castle town... So I used it as a reference...
I got the game ready to check the colours, and I uh, ended up doing an entire dungeon beforehand. I get to go fight a dragon now I actually like the songs in the game, 'specially the Song of Time and Minuet of Forest....
Hey, Listen! The Legend of Zelda belongs to Nintendo!
We can make a big change not only at home and in the society but in the entire world if we help one another. Life would be easier, happier and even more wonderful if we can make a change within ourselves to do what is right and good for us and to other people as well. No walls high enough if we work hand in hand.
I took the photo of the brick wall using my Canon 550D. I transfer the photo to my iPad and painted the ants, stem, leaves, spaghetti noodle and meatball using Procreate painting app for the iPad..
As an awkward youth, reading was the only tool I was equipped with to avoid awkward social youths. During hard times and boring times, the joy of flicking through cheaply pressed pages cleared away all the rain clouds hanging around, and dragged me into the sunny times inside those fresh smelling bound publications.
Reading had always done so much for me, educate, humor, inspire, intrigue, avoid conversation. So I always thought it was time I should honour reading in some form or another. And so, a trifecta of events came together for this piece. The Billy Blue contest, with which I needed something to enter; The stumbling upon of old encyclopedias, which I could change; and as mentioned before, the feeling to honour reading.
And so I present, Why Reading Comes Alive, a sweet and simple homage to my favourite past time, with thirty two inked and separately cute pieces.
Innovation generally refers to renewing, changing or creating something new, or more effective. I wanted to try something different from what I have previously entered - something that applies more to everyone than just myself, but still a concept based change more so than physical.
The light bulbs, as they are often associated, are symbolic of 'ideas.'
In this piece, I have gone for the concept of taking one thing and putting it in a different and abnormal place to where it would usually belong. My aim is to make the viewer think outside the box, to consider all possibilities and to accept something unusual as it's seen without question, even if it may be completely 'out of the norm.'
Our worlds can change in the blink of an eye, with our mood, or through our perspective. The idea conveyed here, is to not judge a book by its cover and automatically dismiss an idea, but to welcome something different and have faith in all its possibilities. Open your mind to something new.
This could apply to something as small as a new idea that may or may not be justifiable, as a dream that may seem too big to reach and even as accepting another person for who they are - no matter what beliefs, culture, style/looks or disabilities they may have. View the bigger picture around you, establish your own personality and stand away from conforming to the crowd, believe in all the possibilities, don't be afraid to try something new and unusual and accept things for what they are without stereotyping and judgement. If you can believe in your dreams no matter how impossible they may seem to others and test the limits of your ideas, you can surely achieve anything. Perspective and state of mind is the most prominent way to change your world for the better, find a positive & accepting outlook, be innovative.
Change your world, by changing your perspective.
I hope this impacts your perspective for the better and that you enjoy my artwork, thanks for your consideration!
So I recently played 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors... And it was amazing It was just... Go play it if you can!
I don't want to describe it too much... Basically 9 people are abducted from their homes and are forced to participate in The Nonary Game. They each have bracelets numbered 1 through to 9 and have to find the door with the number 9 on it to escape... There's more to it than that, such as the rules... Anyway, that's it until you play it~
So Ace is the character with the number 1 bracelet... I ordered the sequel and apparently it's gonna take 9 days to ship... XD So I thought I'd draw each of the main characters... And maybe Zero later...
Reflective statement This was just a plain white T-shirt I wore to my grandmother's funeral (Asians wear white to a funeral). As you can see it's very plain and I wanted it to have a new purpose in life. I initially painted out the design with Chinese inks, scanned it, edited it with gradients and text in Adobe Illustrator and then painted it onto the T-shirt.
In uni I chose to study conservation biology and zoology. Even though I haven't made a career out of it and I don't feel I've done as much volunteering as I should have done, I still think the environment and conservation biology is important. It saddens me when I find out another species has gone extinct and it makes me saddened and disillusioned by mankind. Fashion can make important statements and this shirt is a reminder of what we are doing to the world so hopefully will remember what they are doing to the environment and change for the better. It also serves as a bit of a conversation starter. My family had no idea what this shirt meant and thought that zebras weren't endangered at all (There are a few species of zebra. The Plains Zebra is relatively common but mountain zebras are endangered). I sincerely hope the concept is understood by the rest of the world.
Constructive criticism I painted this design onto the T-shirt with Permaset silk screening inks. Some areas of the shirt look very drybrushed unfortunately. I'm still debating as to whether or not I should have used a stencil. The inks were also very thick and I couldn't think of a way diluting them to make them thinner and easier to paint onto the shirt. Any ideas? There's not much point in me getting a silkscreen - unfortunately I don't do silk screening often enough to warrant a set. Still any ideas would be great. Constructive criticism on the design is also appreciated.
