Back from GalaCon 2015

Back from GalaCon 2015

I actually made no new entry in my journal since I came back from GalaCon 2014 - I was pretty inactive on dA... Anyways; GalaCon 2015 was interesting. Some things were good, some things were less good (no Art-Room ? What a shame...). Overall I think it was very positive. Made some photos and I hopefully can create a new stereographic image shortly. Spend some time with ~dasprid (https://www.deviantart.com/dasprid) and got to know more about the troubles of wearing a pony-suit  - these people deserve some respect for their dedication. Also we bought the staff banner together - great success   (but :icongalacon: needs to get a real banner next year - what were they thinking

My Bio
I'm anything but an artist. I've finished an apprenticeship in media design, but generally I'm just a software architect. But since vectoring is so much fun and a great way to do something which is not related with coding, I pretty much enjoy to do it.

Requests & Commissions
I don't take requests, but I'm fully open to commissions. By now I can create somewhat decent sketches myself, but if you prefer a specific style, you may also deliver a sketch yourself (it can be very rough, I'm fine with that). I can do simple line art, flat color as well as fully shaded drawings. For prices, please send me a note. Examples of recent work:
Sad Applejack by dasprid Scootaloo cries on the outside by dasprid KnifeH likes to show off his butt by dasprid Happy Tracy by dasprid Cute Qetesh by dasprid

Additionally, I offer custom wood engravings and cuttings like the following one:

What I'm currently working on

What I'm currently working on

Some of you may have noticed that I haven't done much art for quite some time. Well, of course the last season is over for 2 months already, but even before that I haven't worked on many vectors. What I was actually doing was training my drawing skills, especially my sketching. That took me actually quite long, but eventually I managed to get a few decent sketches done. With the help of Bra1nEater (https://www.deviantart.com/bra1neater) I even managed to get a somewhat 3D-looking sketch done, which still took me about 3 days. As I wasn't happy with only doing sketches over and over again, I then decided to start learning some shading techniques. That by itself wasn't too hard

Open for commissions

I don't think that anyone really cares, but well, why not. Maybe someone has already read it on my DeviantID, but I'm going to write it down here as well: I recently decided to finally take commissions! By now I can create somewhat decent sketches myself, but if you prefer a specific style, you may also deliver a sketch yourself (it can be very rough, I'm fine with that).

Quickly creating timelapses

Quickly creating timelapses

When it comes to repetitive tasks, I tend to be a lazy person. And since I'm a developer, I try to make these tasks as easy as possible. My very first timelapses were automatically created by Justin.tv, but I had no control over the music or the resulting length, nor could I add anything. Additionally, it always took a while until the timelapses were generated. Later I created all timelapses myself, but that involved a lot of manual work, as I had to calculate the length of the resulting timelapse to match the audio length, set all the encoder settings and so on. Additionally as of my youngest screencasts, I also had to manually add the splas
