New Passion Project

New Passion Project

Fellow dAers, Its been too long since I've posted. I hope this message finds you well. This month, I started working on a passion project I've been working on an off on. Its a critique on contemporary art culture, sometimes satirical, sometimes serious, always art related. If you enjoy my work and like what I do, please stop by and check out it out https://www.facebook.com/ISITARTYET/ I've still been sculpting and will start to share work again soon! Thank you for your continued support. RAY LIN

Contest Results

Hi Everyone, As someone who's participated in past dA contests and has made semi finals and even won 2nd place in one, I can say that by putting yourself out there, you're really pushing yourself to be the best you can be. Look at these contests as a way to do something amazing.  Its a huge challenge for anyone to work under deadlines and produce the best work they can. As long as you can say you've done the best you can, and really mean it - then you've already won. Instead of being spiteful and hating on the judges decisions, be thankful for the opportunity the contest gives you to create great work. It drives us to be great. As for my

Malthael Sculpture

Malthael Sculpture

Hello Deviants! As promised, I've submitted my piece for the Diablo 3 Contest. I have a lot of work in progress pictures to show everyone as well as behind the scenes for the photo shoot. I sculpted it out of EVA foam. over 80 pieces of armor total. This was the most labor intense project I have ever worked from start to finish in tight deadline to date. It is also the largest sculpture I've ever made for a Deviant art contest measuring almost 2 ft. But enough words - Here are links to the piece! :Thumb440236457: :Thumb440245268::thumb440237946::thumb440238104: RAY LIN

First off, Let me apologize for the long hiatus from deviant art. I am building up a new body of work so these days I'm super busy - in a great way! Diablo 3 is one of my favorite franchises so I had to create something for this contest, Its the most ambitious thing I've ever worked on and I've learned a lot of new techniques from doing it. I'm one day from completing the sculpture of Malthael. After doing this piece, I've discovered armor is very very tedious to make and I've also created molds to cast a few pieces that are repeated int he armor. Also. I realized I can't sculpt wings made out of smoke - so I've tried to come up with a crea

Hey there deviant arters, I apologize for my long hiatus. Its been a helluva year. I moved recently and have been settling in. Its a slow process. But I promise more art is on its way! I digress.

Is this what busy feels like?

Is this what busy feels like?

So I went to Cali last month to do a project. And it is sick! I don't think I can ever eat another burger unless its from IN & OUT. Seriously nothing compares. NEW YORK needs  to step they burger game up. I digress. Another thing, The Cali Metro, is AWESOME, except that it only runs til 12. Seriously the honor system of "Tap" paying is just hilarious.  That stuff would not fly at all in New York. I was really glad I got to meet fellow deviant artist  ~JamesMarsano (https://www.deviantart.com/jamesmarsano) and let me tell you, He's just as cool in person as he is online. :)  Sculptor Love baby! Anyway Thanks for watching folks, Just wanted to keep you all updated. I plan on po

Updates and Kickstarter Project?

Things are happening. Most of which I can't talk about. :3 but I've been very busy making furniture as well as sculpting... Also got a chance to borrow ~Rekslare (https://www.deviantart.com/rekslare)'s  DSLR to shoot money shots of new work. So Thanks again Yun. Enjoy! Also I did get the okay to show something that  I did for a movie by a local director. :Thumb288835854: Check out trailer here. http://vimeo.com/37294018 I'm going to do a kickstarter  for a sculpting project very soon... any of my watchers wanna be backers? I will give awesome rewards for sure.. :) RAY LIN

Things!

Things!

So I've been super busy in the past 2 months. I was working with the awesome shop tech at my museum on my loft. Its  finally done. 10' long x 6' wide x 7.5 high. Now I have my "studio" aka the space underneath it.  Been cranking so much work. Will be preparing to do a massive upload after I do a photo shoot (as soon as I can borrow my friend's DSLR) Finished Morbo the news monster 2 months ago. Kif Kroker 3 weeks ago. This time I've been using texture A LOT. Never really sculpt aliens but they turned out great. WIPS now include Scruffy - insoired by Jim Broadbent for face sculpt. Fry - worked and reworked) I think I'm finally sati

Making moves

Making moves

I got schemes and means, my art, my aspirations, my dreams. The way I sling my prose, an artist life full of highs and lows. Everyday I hustle. I make moves. Time to reflect, Sit down and gather my intellect. To change the game that's been done changed. To rearrange what you think what you know about this art game. I flip the script and re-edit the way you perceive what I conceive. Sketched down in a scribble. Pens himself in a ride packed like tinned sardines. Day in day out. I make moves with these two hands. These hands that shape, bend and break. This art game, Doth any f_cking sense make? In the footsteps of giants, I mak

The results are in.

The results are in.
