Hello Mastodon! :mastoart: πŸ‘‹
I'm Shane, a 2D/3D Game Artist and Motion Designer from Nottingham, UK and I hope to share my work and development here with you all.

It's been a while since I last posted anything, so here are a few sketches I did this week to try get back into drawing.

I don't exacly play Sid Meier's Civilization on a regular basis or owt, but it's something I occasionally dabble in.

I've decided to stop posting daily. I've written more about why in the link below, but the TL;DR is:

- I simply don't enjoy it
- it's limiting me in how I learn
- I haven't been able to rest/relax properly since starting
- I don't want to risk getting burned out again
- I'll still try post more frequently than I used to, just not daily
- It works for others, but not for me

40 / Oil Pump

Finished and rendered, albeit without the text on the back panel. There's still a few other objects I'm learning the process of making as part of a 3D course I'm now almost done with, but I don't think I'll create and post any of those. Instead, I'll just watch to see how they're made and take notes for when I do my own assets.

39 / Oil Pump

This oil pump model I'm learning how to create should be finished and rendered tomorrow. No issues so far, just needs a few more tweaks before I continue.

38 / Oil Pump

Continuing with the 3D course I'm on and this time, I'm learning how to model an Oil Pump from reference. Hopefully this will be finished and rendered either tomorrow or Sunday.

36 / Female and Male Figures

One of the short assignments from term 1 of ART School was to draw the female and male figures using the provided template. Not too difficult, but remembering what guide points goes where might take me a few more goes before I can remember them all; It mainly uses thirds with a few exceptions.

35 / New Shape

I was going to use one of the shapes I made yesterday and try make something new with it, but I gave up on that idea.

32 / Back to Basics

I've now started the Art School drawing course created by Marc Brunet. Not sure how long that will take me to complete, but it's definitely not short and I'm hoping this'll give me the training I need to draw much better. I also stopped half way through this exercise because I realised my choice of reference material wasn't helping me.

31 / Life is Strange

It was Life is Strange's fifth anniversary yesterday! It's one of the few games that was recommended to me a few years back that I ended up really taking a liking to. I'm also not going to spend any more time on this so I can finish early today and finally play a game at least once this month.

30 / Hatsune Miku

I've been listening to Lindo Habie and Hatsune Miku's 'I Hope This Music Chills You A Bit' song quite a lot the past few days. It's a nice little song.

28 / Twin & Earth Cable Clip

This one was surprisingly difficult to get even close to looking right. Might have to go over some basic edge sharpening techniques again soon.
