Officially back!

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 22, 2019, 7:46 PM


I am back again, but this time for real! :iconwhutplz:

Where have I been?
First I won a scholarship to an online art school called CG Spectrum and studied there for a year, then I entered something called The Rookies and won an internship at Weta Digital! I got to spend six weeks in New Zealand :iconsuperw00tplz:
Read more about it here: blog.therookies.co/2019/01/10/…


Once I work my way through the art that I owe people... (thanks for all being so patient!)

I am going to make a comic! It's about dinosaurs, time travel, bermuda triangle, and other cool stuff! Stay tuned for updates! :iconshaplz:

Hey guys! Long time, no see.

Firstly, I got a cintiq tablet for my birthday, woo :iconsuperw00tplz:
I also won a scholarship to the online art school CG Spectrum, where I have been studying since the beginning of the year! My diploma finishes early next year.

Sorry for being so inactive and not uploading anything in aaages.

I now have an ArtStation (where you can find bunches of my school work/new art) go check it out here: www.artstation.com/katinkathor…

It's spooky time!

I'm hosting a contest, and it’s got some pretty intense prizes, including a prize pool with 450 :points: and $1440 worth of illustrations – so if you’re interested, read on! :dummy:


CONTEST THEME: BLACK CAT

https://orig11.deviantart.net/a58a/f/2015/286/e/4/tumblr_np5qada0ky1rzo7txo1_400_by_cobravenom-d9d1cvc.gif

"In Western history, black cats have often been looked upon as a symbol of evil omens, specifically being suspected of being the familiars of witches, and so most of Europe considers the black cat a symbol of bad luck, especially if one crosses paths with a person, which is believed to be an omen of misfortune and death."

Must be a spooky, eerie, Halloween entry, involving a black cat. The entry must have a foreboding sense of horror about it, but not actually depict violence. Fear is what should be represented. If you have any phobias, or childhood fears, you can go wild with them in the entry, just be sure to include the black cat. The cat may be the main focus of the entry, or simply an eerie addition. Winners will be judged by - Spookiness, originality, creativity, and effort.
