This a mountaintop I drew in my sketchbook last year and recently added some color to it. I tried to get a bit of an uneven rocky texture for the mountain in the foreground. I think I used a documentary I saw at the time as a reference.

This is a small pen drawing I did that depicts some snow-covered rocks. Though it's not that visible, I tried to differ a bit between the shadow lines (hatched with diagonal straight lines) and a more curved pattern for the rocks themselves. I filled the sky with dots to allude to snow-filled clouds.

oh yeah! here's a couple of ideas for brushes I started on photoshop. I'm sure somebody's already made something like this, but the idea is that they're just border-type brushes. More for creative thinking/visualising than anything. Used a maximalist piece I did as a backdrop.

I dunno how useful other people might find these, but if you have any thoughts (positive and negative welcome!) lemme know!

SO Alfie really likes that bell piece (see last post) and commissioned me to draw Korinna's characters Croblin and Croco (which is basically them) standing in front of a cursed bell. So I had to draw another extremely ornate bell. But im GLAD/happy with how it came out, especially considering I didn't rely on my usual gimmick of 'Distract With An Overwhelming Colour Palette.'

I've also grown fond of this self portrait, might use it as an avatar but it looks MEAN

Okay, I know I have bias but this is really good if you're into this stuff
(also if you don't listen to ambient music, give it a shot! I remember tuning into an internet radio station called the "Drone Zone" when I was a teenager, ready to scoff at it and finding the concept ridiculous, but ended up loving it)

only just started listening to it, but my brother has made what already sounds like a great ambient album.

"All proceeds from this recording will be donated in equal parts to The Bail Project (bailproject.org) and Medical Aid for Palestinians (map.org.uk), in honour of a historic solidarity between two struggles."

I've recently started doing these black and white compositional studies in Procreate. They have a twofold benefit:

1) by understanding compositional qualities in painting, my generative art compositions also get better,
2) they scratch my visual creation itch in times of long programming stretches which yield no visual output.

I will now pester you with them. 😆 #30daysofoseka

More examples, CW for gore/grossness/sort-of-nsfw nudity?/body horror/food 

maybe these aren't the best examples to advertise commissions, but they're more recent/thus I'm extra fond of them

Dunno if it's within my capabilities, but I'm keen on attempting to make (free/pay what you want) brushes that are more inclusive re: mobility etc, and welcome any thoughts from people with reduced mobility. I'll obvs be trying to conduct research on my own end. I dunno if photoshop actions are downloadable/easy to make available, but might try make a few of those in line with this too.

(this is clumsily written, if my terminology/intentions come across shittily please feel free to correct me)

I'm planning to spend the month making some brush sets for photoshop/procreate.

I've started work on some ideas, but if you have any brush needs, feel free to lemme know because it'd be good to know what other people might want too!

The idea is that I can put them up somewhere and put >90% proceeds monthly towards an organisation. Ideally i'd be making enough to split amongst these, but I don't think that's realistic. So that's a side of it I need to mull over.
