Le soleil me prends le corps, et je ne veux pas quitter ma nuit. Garder mes yeux fermés et penser à C., jusqu'à ne plus pouvoir. Toujours. Trop loin. Les fleuves rouges envahis de lumière, j'avale une guirlande lumineuse. Je deviens coton et je sens sa présence juste là, sur ma nuque. Je dégage mes cheveux pour qu'il puisse venir entièrement. Aucun obstacle, je suis là pour lui.
Went a tad more into this than I originally intended (started with just the skull and feather, but then I kept adding stuff). It would probably have to be pretty big to reproduce the tones, but I think the design itself works.
In general, for anything submitted to the tattoo section (Tattoo section only please):
It’s fine if anyone actually wants to get a tattoo of one of the designs. The designs may also be modified (for example, colored, or reproduced only in part) to suite individual preferences. I might have small prints of the images available – buying one is not required but would be greatly appreciated. Images are for tattoos only. Do not sell, re-sell images etc etc Thanks :
The photo was taken on the lake Bled in Slovenia. It was calm and cloudy weather. The small waves on the water surface were creating stripes and I noticed two ducks swimming through that interesting water texture.
~ For the last month, the Carpetheus had been been locked in a Dimensional Rift. Three days ago they were released from its grip and found themselves on the edge of a galaxy unkown to them. A place unchartered with no recognisable planets known to their data base. What was showing up on their long range sensors were many small planets. One in particular however, had gained their attention....but not by choice. It seemed to be pulling the ship toward it and was emitting great static. They were once again powerless to gain control of the Carpetheus as if they were deliberately bought to this destination. Carpetheus had been drawn into the planet's field of gravity. Power was once again restored to the ship but when they tried to move away from the planet, they were unable to, finding themselves only able to skim the outer edge of the planets' gravity.
The only thing going for them at this stage was that the immense static that had first shown on their sensors, was no longer present. This had ceased once they were within the gravity field, once again allowing their systems to operate normally. For days they had been orbiting the planet gathering data. Automated sensor devices had been fired onto the surface at various intervals as they explored the planet in grids. So far all data transmitted back to the Carpetheus showed no signs of lifeform or natural vegetation and nothing of any great importance other than the fact that there were large bodies of water. Since the planet was a vast expanse of frozen tundra, this suggested melting and melting meant heat. But how, it was not known.
It was the fourth day and as they navigated the Carpetheus into the southern sector of the twentieth grid, their visual display equipment started going haywire, scrolling uncontrollably at such great speed with many of them short circuiting from an overload of power coming up at them from the surface of the planet . What came into their view.... stopped them all dead in their tracks.
For two days they had been monitoring the pyramid and the strange Totems that formed a pathway to it. The entire structure was in darkness illuminated only by the light of the distant planet and encircling nebula. The only sign of life was a low hum that was emanating from within the pyramid. Their data readings confirmed a massive power source that was within the pyramid but something or someone was blocking their tracking devices in locating the core of that power source. It was time to send a scouting party.
Mj. Todd Carter and Lt. Cash Budman had set Carpet Lander I (Commander Jenkins' pet name for his fleet of reconnaisance craft) a safe distance from the pyramid and proceeded toward the great structure in the Carpet Bug (as they were affectionately known because they were sure footed, hard to roll over and were manouverable in any kind of terrain). Carter and Budman left the Bug at the entrance of the pathway and started down toward the pyramid on foot.
They had just reached the first of the Totem's when they were stopped dead in their tracks. The thusfar low hum being emitted from the pyramid had escallated into a deep vibration that shuddered through both their bodies barely allowing them to stand. They held their ground fighting the vibrations as it washed over them in waves and just as unexpectedly as the vibrations had started, they ended spontaneously in synch with the sudden illumination of the pyramid. Sections of the pyramid were bathed in a soft pink hue and just below the crest was a glowing plasma-like Eye that seemed to pierce right into their very being.
"CARTER, WHATS HAPPENING DOWN THERE?" was the last thing Major Carter had heard.
The Commander's radio contact had set off a trigger. The plasma Eye shot rays of light into circular appertures below the Crescent Crowns of each Totem, illuminating deep aquamarine crystals within their pedestals. The crackling sound of electricity was deafening as the crystals charged the Crescent Crowns sending streams of lightning bolts into the sky from their tips and as they turned to run back to the Bug, one of the lightning bolts arked down striking Carter, lifting him from the ground.
Budman knew he had to get out of there ....and fast. He HAD to get out of the pathway to the pyramid. Turning on his heels heading back toward the Bug, he barely escaped a second bolt as it arked down toward him. Breathless and feeling like his heart was being seared out from within his chest cavity in pain Budman reaches the Bug almost falling over himself as he jumps into it. Out of the corner of his eye he sees movement......Carter is staggering toward the Bug. "Holy shit...he's alive" he yells out loud as he jumps out of the Bug. He reaches him just as Carter falls into his arms. "C'mon buddy, we gotta get out of here. I thought you were a gonner. Are you ok?" he asks as he half carries, half drags Carter back to the Bug. Carter nods as he lifts him into the Bug and uses precious seconds to look him in the eyes to see if he is really ok. But all is not well.....he is staring back but Carter is not behind those eyes. Instead he sees the eyes that are staring back at him are like the Eye of the pyramid.....something ancient, powerful and evil ....now "Unleashed". ~
This is a cover illustration for "La Mer Gelee", an independent french/german artmagazine. I did a sketch with pencils, then went on for shading in photoshop. The dirt layers are photographs of old walls. This image has been awarded the CG Choice Award [link]
This painting I had a vision to do to continue the "Moon Chasers" I did a few years back. I think I will do one more later on.
This is oil 18 x 24. The clouds in the bottom left are much darker. Couldn't get the image to come out right.
So im going to need some pretty big favor from you guys! Currently im looking to make Neo Japan 2202 into a book before into a game! (hopefully), so there's a poll johnsonting.deviantart.com/ on the main page above my journal entry, i hope you guys dont mind doing a pretty fast two-click survey for me. If it were to be made into a book, it's going to be roughly like this: -- English! But will probably have japanese translation/subtexts. -- Most probably hardcover -- 150 - 200 pages. -- 50-100 artworks (Illustrations and sketches) -- At least 30-50 Exclusive artworks that can only be in the book. -- The Story, tons of it! Not just plain texts but with visuals as well. -- Documents from the Neo Japan 2202 universe, maps/files/pictures/blueprints/namecards etc. -- Price wise, im not really sure right now but i will definitely keep it as low as possible, the same goes to shipping, but if its not too much of a trouble i hope you guys dont mind dropping me a price range you would buy it! -- Probably a digital ebook version as well (Download code for physical book buyers included) -- Hopefully some soundtracks! (Currently looking for collaborators, you guys recommend anyone?) -- Prints / posters inside!
This is still an initial concept so this is not the final product, just a rough mock up and testing around stuffs. Hopefully i can include different printing materials in the book to add a little more variety into it. Let me know what you think Feedbacks are important and let me know what you want the most to be in a book that you would love to own and love! It's important for me to know what you guys think and you're playing a big role to decide whether this book would be coming in the near future, so i take all the help i can get!
Also, if you're a publication company and interested to talk further, do not hesitate to contact me@ firstname.lastname@example.org. Any other artists that wishes to contribute anything to the Neo Japan universe, let me know in the comments below!
IN OTHER NEWS, i have 19 invitations for Artstation this month, anyone need them? Im more than happy to give them
PS. Keep the feedbacks going! I read them all and will reply them one by one as always, it's important for me to know what you think, any help is greatly appreciated!
Long time i haven't draw Wyatt -u-, or draw SOMETHING, i've been really tired lately with school
A simple headshot because i can't get myself to draw elaborated stuff. I have a constant fight due to the idea of getting out of my comfort zone, although im really tired and if i try something hard i'll end up frustrated. In the other hand i still want to draw, easy stuff like this headshot.

I photographed this awhile ago on the beach and on the dunes, but the beach turned out much better due to a storm at the time. I purchased the starfish from a shop just off the beach, so no, it's not alive and they don't wash up on the beaches around here.

Revisiting the dragon gate theme in this commissioned piece.
In Chinese and Japanese legend the lowly carp spends its life trying to swim up the Yellow River. At the source of the river is a great roaring waterfall. If the koi were able to swim up that waterfall, it would be rewarded and transformed into a dragon. Thus, the koi is a symbol of personal advancement, perseverance, determination in the face of impossible obstacles, and inner strength. The journey of the carp to become a dragon was a metaphor for young scholars passing the Chinese state exams and become a mandarin.
