I am happy to announce I will be attending Japan Expo this year. I will be hosted by a French publisher Editions du Chat Noir, and I will be signing copies of the novel NOX by Eloise Tanghe, for which I had the pleasure to illustrate the cover. Chat Noir will also be selling some A4 poster prints and postcards with my works. Find us in Hall 5A, booth C191. I will be there Thursday through Saturday.

and while we're on the subject, if anyone else has been considering cosplaying any of my characters please know that my gallery is very cosplay friendly - just let me know which picture you'd like to work on, where i can expect some photos (because i would just love to see them) and, if possible, add a small copyright note when posting. if you need assistance or further explanation of the outfits i'll do my best to help you^^

i will be updating this journal with your works~

it's been a long time since my last entry, have a bunch of updates:

:bulletblack: lords of the fallen

after coming back to poland over a year ago i was lucky enoguh to get a job as a concept artist working on LOTF. my job included designing a number of armors and weapons, illustrating a large part of the equipment cards and some other 2D elements, taking care of feedback for our 3D artists and a number of other tasks.

it was a great pleasure working on this project, with so many amazing developers both at our studio and all over the world. everyone tried their best to deliver a game people might enjoy and we hope those of you who decide to give it a try will find it a fun experience.

i should be able to share some of the concept artworks i've created soon (or so my art director said before) so look forward to those.

for those of you who haven't heard about it, you can learn more about the game on the official website and facebook.

:bulletblack: skillshare class

for those who missed the news: you can now enroll in my skillshare class for free! check out character concept art: from grayscale to full color illustration

half plate warrior - skillshare by len-yan

:bulletblack: threads artbook

check out the beautiful, fantasy fashion themed artbook threads - it's full of stunning artworks and helpful tutorials by some of deviantart's most talented folk! i am delighted to say that one of my pictures will be included as guest art. check out the kickstarter campaign and support the wonderful artist behind this great book.



:bulletblack: yayuco 2014

finally, over oct31 - nov2 i will be attending this year's yayuco - a bl/gl convention in munich, germany, where i'll be having two short live drawing + Q&A sessions on saturday. the rest of the time you'll be able to find me in the artist alley, offering some postcard prints (they might be available online after the convention if i have any leftovers) as well as con-hon entries. you will also be able to purchase FireangelsDA's artbook dragonlords, which features 6 of my artworks.

please come over and say hi if you're there^^

I will also share some tips about creating character concept art so hopefully those of you who wish to work in game development will find it interesting. I will be adding a video trailer for the class within a week or so.

I will be thankful if you share this information so that more people can learn about the class.

Thank you!

dear friends,

thank you for yet another year together. i am always so very thankful for all the support you've been showing me during my time here at dA. it's amazing how we're all brought here by our love for art, be it painting, photography, literature, sculpture, animation or any other form of creativity. and even though we don't always agree on everything, even though we complain about various problems, even though things not always go the way we would like them to, let's not forget that art is our common passion. let's stay positive and creative, inspire and motivate each other. let's do the best we can with our lives and never give up. i wish that this upcoming year will be full of health, love and happiness for all of you. i hope you'll have a lot of reasons to smile. and, to quote mr. Neil Gaiman, one of my favourite writers,

1M thanks + Aviterion introduction

Sat Dec 17, 2011, 9:43 AM


.......2011年12月17日:

my dear watchers and visitors. thank you for visiting my page over a million times. it is really overwhelming and still a bit difficult for me to believe. during the 8 years i have spent on deviantART i made some good friends and received a lot of support. i am very grateful. i'll keep working and doing my best to provide you with better and better works to enjoy^^

AVITERION


many of you have probably taken notice of the works for a project called Aviterion and today i am happy to introduce it to you properly.





Aviterion is a semi-casual full 3d action rpg game with a network battle option developped by OLC FACTORY team of Sogang University Game Education Center, south korea. The story stressed the negative influence of pollution over natural environment and portrays a story of Karnil, a young boy who sets on an adventure during which he struggles to restore the nature. The game is planned for 3-4 hours and is developed for PC platform. The progress is estimated to be around 90%.





The works on Aviterion started two years ago as a different project, Last Fantasy. This was when zeuez (my half-time roommate lol) used to be the main character designer. The team has continued the working on Last Fantasy for a year. After that there were many changes among team members (especially with some of the students graduating the school). In the end the project itself underwent a major metamorphosis. The whole storyline was written anew and the things that stayed the same were mainly the character and location designs (seeing as it's a shame to waste perfectly good graphic sources, especially when working under a pressing deadline : I ). Starting in March 2011 the works on the project started over again, I took over as the character designer.





Aviterion has been displayed during international game expo G★STAR 2011 (in south korea) at Sogang University Game Education Center's booth, as well as during the Sogang University Game Education Center's open project presentation (attended by representatives of over 50 south korean game companies) and received considerable attention from the media, resulting in features in internet press (one of the articles: www02.playforum.net/gstar/-/id… ) and TV.













you can also watch a sample gameplay video on youtube. it is a couple of months old so it doesn't show the current version of the game - many things were fixed and added. still, it should give you a good idea of how the game looks like. additionally it is worth mentioning that the whole sound track for Aviterion was made from scratch especially for the game. the video can be seen here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJOPTp…

lastly, below you can see the character concept works submitted to deviantart:

new tower defense game for iPhone [links edited]

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 30, 2011, 6:28 PM


.......2011年08月31日:


:bulletpink: dear deviantArt. i am happy to inform you the company i am currently employed at, innodis, launched their newest game on iPhone market. i haven't been personally involved with graphics for this particular game but i have been supporting the marketing team for this project (and some others) with posters, pop-ups and such. i have played the game myself and it is indeed rather a fun, casual position. very good for long bus rides, haha~



:bulletpink: a few words about the game itself. Defen-G is a casual tower defense game. it has some useful skills avaliable and additional guardians. the graphics are adorable and the game itself, while simple to learn, is not too easy so it shouldn't get boring fast. i am don't do much of mobile gaming but i must admit i enjoyed Defen-G and i hope so will you^^

:bulletpink: if anyone is interested, you can download the game on iTunes [ itunes.apple.com/us/app/defen-… ] or check it out on youtube [ www.youtube.com/user/GlobalInn… www.youtube.com/watch?v=64_PpO… ] and facebook [ www.facebook.com/DefenG.en ]. i hope at least a couple of you will have some fun with it and i am looking forward to introducing you a game that i will be personally working on next time! thank you for your support~~~ ;v;



:bulletpink: having said that, i'd like to apologize for lack of new posts lately. i am extremally busy at the moment. i will do my best to post something new soon >___< ...if worse comes to worst i guess i can spam you with my tumblr homestuck doodles D< [if anyone is interested my tumblr is here: len-yan.tumblr.com ...it's currently 95% homestuck at the moment so if you don't mind that feel free to follow me^^]

:bulletpink: also, please forgive shameless plugging. i promise not to do too much advertising v___v just thought i'd share~


:heart:

dear dA, i don't hate you

Journal Entry: Tue May 17, 2011, 9:51 PM


.......2011年05月18日:


:bulletpink: i haven't been very active on dA lately and i have many messages i still need to reply to. if you didn't get an answer from me, it's not because i ignore you. i am just extremally busy nowadays. my usual weekday consists of work at the company (8h, transport included), school (3-5h) and homework + game project (4-6h). i have about an hour of a dinner break. sport, shower etc take me another two. as you can easily calculate, on weekdays i'm not able to sleep more than 3-4 hours. i even work on the projects while skyping with my parents. on weekends i try to catch up on sleep (usually around 10h) and the homework/project that i wasn't able to do during the week. if the weather is nice i go out for a few hours, for a walk. i don't even have enough time to meet people (zeuez being the only exception - we run together at nights. and then there are my room mates, i guess~). my online life gets whatever time's left. so please, don't get annoyed if i can't answer your question right away or if i forget to do so! TT^TT

:bulletpink: i'd like to thank those of you who showed interest in our team's game project. while we are a small indie group and the game is just a school project brought a level higher, we do put our best effort into completing it. i will do my best to write more about it as soon as i can. for now we don't know if we're gonna release the game, but we'll be taking it for this year's G-star for sure. in any case, i'll keep you posted. thank you for the support!

:bulletpink: some of my friends (:iconmegan-uosiu::iconrazurichan::iconkairek::iconloreen:) published an artbook you might be interested in - its theme (and title) is fantastic creatures. find more info here: megan-uosiu.deviantart.com/art…

..::FC Artbook: PREORDERS::.. by Megan-Uosiu

:bulletpink: least but not last, i'd like to express my gratitude for the constant support you've been showing me and my art. i might not be able to respond to most of you but i do read each and every message and i am grateful for every one of them - be it a word of encouragement or a word of advice. dA's community is truly amazing!


thank you~

:bulletpink: so apparently the world is coming to an end. i am joining all the services the 'cool kids' do. it might be too many hours at work. but then again, it might be premature middle age crisis;; *wants to feel young again* ;___; ...please, bear with me..

:bulletpink: anikakinka pimped me already so i guess i can as well make it official... i decided to join tumblr.

:bulletpink: for some time now i've been looking for a place where i could do some casual blogging. i tried LJ but our relationship wasn't really a happy one. somehow, it put me under pressure to post decent art and long posts, which in the end resulted in total lack of updates (i'm sorry to everyone who had high expectations of my LJ account ;A; ). i hope it will be better with tumblr.

:bulletpink: having said that, don't expect a clean art blog. there will most likely be a lot of random posts, low quality doodles, even more random entries about korea and scraps of my personal life and interests.

:bulletpink: if this is what you want to see, follow the white rabbit (or rather, the pink zebra): len-yan.tumblr.com

:bulletpink: thank you for all the messages! i arrived in korea safely. i'm trying to get used to the time zone change now. jet lag is an evil evil thing ;A;

:bulletpink: i'm back to work already. it's good to see the guys again. now i look forward to my reunion with kids from school. i missed them a lot. well, two more weeks 'till new semester starts~ wish me luck^^

:bulletpink: happy late valentine's day~ :heart: i love you guys~ forgive me if i have no chocolate for you at the moment - instead i'll try to make a chocolate themed picture for you soon!

:bulletpink: :iconkurimja: - you better visit me soon >________<

.......2011年02月10日:


:bulletpink: my time at home seemed to be long at first and ended up as being way too short. tomorrow i'm going back to korea. work and school await me, so i won't be bored. i still need to find a place to live, too. fun fun.

:bulletpink: chinese new year came and went without me realising. i wanted to make it on time with a picture but art block is still strong. that and there was lots of running between university and embassy, buying stuff, meeting people.. i'll try to draw some belated chinese new year and valentines day (i just know i won't be able to make it with this one either) pics later, when i settle down and have some time (ha ha...)

:bulletpink: even though i couldn't do all the things i wanted to do, i was still able to meet :iconanikakinka: :iconred-priest-usada: :icongoku-no-baka: :icondarktiger-ex: :iconlady-werewolf: :iconvanitachi: and :iconokinawa-no-shinsei: (even if just for a short moment). i hope next time i'll be able to meet :iconmerillian: :iconmonikapalosz: :iconradittz: and :iconexileden: - i'm sorry it didn't work out this time ;A;

:bulletpink: on a bright side, soon i'll be meeting my lovely :iconzeuez: and other kids from school again. i hope we'll do many fun things together this year, too~
and speaking of fun things we did together, i should have an exciting (for me at least) announcement to make soon. if you have some extra pocket money you might wish to save up a bit of it^^

:bulletpink: on a more dA related note, thank you for all the support you've been showing me and my art lately. i got quite a big number of notes during the last month and i'm a bit delayed with replying. i'll try to get back to all of you soon, so please, wait just a bit longer~


thank you~

home for christmas // holiday wishes~

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 24, 2010, 1:19 AM

.......2010年12月24日:



dear friends,

like every year, i'd like to wish you peaceful christmas holidays. i hope you spend wonderful time with your families or friends, or however you celebrate this time in your country. i wish you health and happiness, and a lot of christmas warmth. even though santa claus has been commercialized so much lately and even though you've probably been seing holiday decorations for over a month now, let's allow ourselves to feel at least a bit of the christmas magic.

merry christmas :holly:


.......2010年12月22日:



i was able to come back to poland for christmas this year. actually, it's been a week now. my flight was long, but there were no problems. i have to consider myself lucky, what with many european airports being closed because of heavy snowing this year. only a few days ago, the airport in amsterdam, where i had my transfer, got closed.

it has been snowing most of the time during my first week back in poland (although i hear korea got rather cold as well). i'm keeping my fingers crossed for the proper white christmas this time around. and finally, after 3 years, i will be able to spend the holidays with my family. i'm really lucky~

i finally received my diploma (last time around, i was leaving right after my m.a. exam and i couldn't pick it up). after christmas, i'll need to apply for the next visa. i'm planning to go back to korea in early february.

i am resting a bit and helping with the holiday preparations. i don't think i'll be able to draw before christmas but after that, i'm going to make a hole in my tablet~ i can't wait^^

in other news, it's quite possible i'll be selling an artbook that we prepared during this year with kids from my school in korea. hopefully some of you will be interested in purchasing it. i'll write more soon, after i set the details with the club leader and our teacher. keep your eyes open for future journals^^

-----

do polakow. jesli ktos chcialby sie ze mna zobaczyc, a bedzie przebywal w warszawie, przyjmuje propozycje terminow spotkan na styczen lol~

-----

as always, i'd like to express my gratitude for all the support you have been offering me lately. it means a lot to me. i can't get back to all of you but i read every single message and treasure every word of encouragement or critic you have to share.

i want to finish all belated commissions during this winter break. i'm trying to reply to all questions and notes you've sent me lately. i'm also considering preparing a step-by-step (since i can't do proper tutorials;; ) of my digital painting technique. i might get interested in livestream, if it turns out my computer and internet connection are fast enough. would anyone be interested in any of those?

if you have any other questions or suggestions, please do share them and i'll see what i can do about them^^

:heart:

my wonderful roommate :iconzeuez: along with other members of Turtle Cream team (all of them my schoolmates) decided to share with you two games that they made! if you like simple indie games you should try out "Cut&Paste" and "Sugar Cube". you can download both of them here:

luvtext.net/tc/eng/ (Turtle Cream homepage)

you can also see trailers for them on youtube:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=GsjZ-g… (Cut&Paste)

www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJYtJ3… (Sugar Cube)

both of the games have been awarded 1st prize in korean indie game competition. my father and brother (fall-again) also had their part in the making proccess by beta-testing, bringing new improvements to gameplay~ ^3^

if you enjoy these games, please give zeuez some feedback. or you can write your comments here and i'll translate and forward them to her and the team. i'm sure they'll be very happy to read your comments^^

if you have any questions feel free to note me or zeuez!

the Turtle Cream team made both of those games as school projects (so you can pretty much see what kind of stuff we're doing at school). i really hope i'll be able to share a game of my own with you someday as well but for now, please enjoy the work of my talented roommate~

halloween // tea box // various updates

.......2010年10月31日:



happy halloween to anyone who celebrates the holiday
peaceful all saints' day and all souls' day to fellow polish people and other friends brought up in christian tradition

i am currently working on a slightly halloween themed picture as one of my school projects but since i just started on it a few days ago it'll take me a while to finish it. i think i should have it done by the end of next week at the latest though so keep an eye out for it^^

----------

yesterday evening i received what is now officially called a 'len-yan tea box' <3 i hear it arrived on friday but it was left with our landlord. still, after a few months i finally have it!

enormous thanks go to:
* :iconmerillian: who prepared and sent the box,
* :iconkatari-katarina::iconradittz::icongoku-no-baka: who added their wonderful gifts
* and all the other friends and supporters who send wishes and good thoughts.

i am very touched and shall now enjoy delicious tea on daily basis! i have yet to download the photos from my phone but after that's done i'll upload some as well^^

thankyou~<3

----------

in other news, i am as busy as ever. last week i got employed (i had to find a job in order to get a visa as some issues arised with the student one...) so starting tomorrow i will be attempting to juggle school (6 classes to attend, 9 to pass exams for), 3 tutoring jobs, one official illustration job, school art club activity and work in a company (translator/interpreter + graphics + basic office work). that and bits and scraps of personal life, if possible~ can i do it? time will show. what's for sure is, i am completely stressed over first day in the company tomorrow x__x i really hope it will go well..

-----

pomiedzy polowa grudnia a polowa stycznia bede w polsce. jesli ktokolwiek chcialby sie spotkac postaram sie pojawic na wampirkonie~ w sprawie ewentualnych spotkan w innym terminie bardzo prosze o notke odpowiednio wczesniej^^

-----

i realise i have some unanswered notes and comments. i will get to them, just please, give me some more time;;;
thanks for your patience and constant support~~~

...it's murphy's laws that rule the world. and when you think everything is going to be well for once things have a way of going spectacularly wrong.

i'm not giving up. of course i'm not. i was never any good at this giving up business to begin with. or maybe i'm just too stubborn for my own good. in either case, i'll fix this ridiculous situation that i'm in and i'll make it all work again.

but today, i just want to take a painkiller for my headache and get some rest..
