The Balgaire
The second commissioned piece for Chris Ings, I present the Balgaire! Based on the Stormfox ( fav.me/dajtva9 ) by Alex Iglesias :iconflyingdebris: 

This is the companion piece to the Red Hunter mech ( fav.me/dc7joi3 ) by the same artist. Unlike the previous build, this one was a lot easier to figure out. Though I did have considerable trouble working out the back end. It took me quite some time and several attempts to get the hip section to fit properly and match as close to the original art as I could. The rest of the detail work as before was my attempt to fill in space while emulating Iglesias's unique style. Some of the detail work had to be cut or modified in consideration for possible 3D printing later on.

Community Love?

I'm not really all that social here on dA. That means I don't regularly participate in any forums, groups, or anything like that. So instead, I'll give a shout out to the groups that have added some of my art to their collections!

Today's prompt: First Love - In a status update, share the first deviation you added to your favourites! 

Detective girl by isamuf

I had to go WAY back to 2004 to find this one. I'm not sure if it really is the first Deviation that I added to my favorites, but it is the one that's still there.

So for today's dA badge prompt, we're supposed to feature five entries that we love. 

So...What do I love? As an artist, what draws my passions? What are my muses? I suppose to answer that I'll just dig into my own gallery.

No. 1 - Video Games
Ever since my grandparents got me the original Nintendo in 1987, video games had been a major influence on my life. From the Legend of Zelda in the 80s, to real-time strategy titles in the 90s (Dune, Command & Conquer, Warcraft), a plethora of MMORPGs in the 00s; and back to single player, open world titles today like Skyrim and Breath of the Wild. Videogames have had a major influence on my art. So with that in mind, instead of my Zelda art gallery, I'll feature my one Metroid image.

No. 2 - Horror Movies
Growing up through the 80s and 90s, I'd seen so many iconic horror films. The Alien trilogy, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the Thirteenth, Halloween, Candyman, Childs Play, and so many others. though my tastes grew from slasher flicks to more psychological thrillers like Silence of the Lambs, Se7en, The Bone Collector, among others.

On that subject, I present one of the puzzleboxes from Hellraiser.

No. 3. Science Fiction
Woah oh, oh oh oh
At the late night -- double feature -- picture show!

From the venerable Star Trek to the space opera Star Wars, to the adventures of the Star Gate crew, if there's "Star" in the title, I've probably watched it. And who could resist those classics of Sci-Fi B movies from the 50s and 60s?  Especially when they appeared on Mystery Science Theater 3000! Looking through my gallery it's evident that Sci-fi has played a major role in shaping my interests. I've even subscribed to a sci-fi heavy subreddit where I enjoy a lot of the entries from flash fiction to epic length tales. But to choose one of my images to feature here is a bit tricky. So I'll go with one of the more iconic films from the golden age of Hollywood: The Day the Earth Stood Still. Though really, I could have posted anything from about half of my submissions.

No. 4. S-Words
Swords! I own a number of them in real life, and what adventure story is complete without a sword? From King Arthur's Excalibur, to Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber. The sword can be as much of a character as the hero and villain who wields it. And where would Link be without the Master Sword? Well anyone that's played Breath of the Wild can tell you, haplessly swinging around a wooden stick when that scavenged Royal Sword shatters against the hide of a Lionell.

Apart from the mythos behind the weapon, I also enjoy watching people craft them. From the first moment I saw the 1982 movie Conan the Barbarian when the operatic theme Riddle of Steel/Riders of Doom (by Basil Poledouris) played over the creation of Conan's father's sword (which I know today to be absolutely not the way to make a steel sword), I was hooked. Today, one of the few television series to keep my attention is History Channel's Forged in Fire. I've also suscribed to several metal smiths on youtube. 

While I contemplate doing my own Forged in Fire Challenge where I recreate the final challenge weapons from each episode, I'd like to present my latest submission: The Norman Style Master Sword (Yep, videogames and history rolled into one!)

No. 5 - Cute
"But, Liz! I thought you were going to mention BattleTech! Your gallery is FILLED with giant, stompy, walking tanks!"

Well, yes. That is a passion of mine. And creating something that's an official product is one of the items on my bucket list. Plus the vast majority of images in my gallery are related to the franchise. But really, I can't resist stuff that I find cute. Kittens rolling around being cute. Puppies playfighting. Little bunnies doing that little thing with their noses. If it's cute, there's a good chance you'll hear a delighted Squee! After all, the second submission in my gallery is Aoi Sakuraba from the anime Ai Yori Aoshi submitted in 2004 (though I drew it much earlier than that). Scattered about my gallery are things that are simply cute! The robotic Easter eggs, the Ancient Robot from Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, and a logo design for a brand of a Mom and Pop honey producer. I really don't do much art that's actually cute. But my favorites gallery is full of stuff that I enjoy.

While I haven't made many things that are cute, I did make a pair of toy soldiers that look simply adorable
