Going off of what the title says up there ^, life so far for me has been pretty good. Schooling at AI has been awesome for the first 4 weeks! Work has been pretty hard but not impossible, you just have to know how to make time and schedule your day out properly.For myself, I can say that I'm pretty terrible at planning my days out, but if a guy like me can make it, anyone can (hopefully). Right now I have a couple of finished art pieces that I have collecting dust in my computer's art folder, I'll be posting those soon enough. So life has been pretty busy for me, but I'm thankful that I'll be able to be on DeviantArt with no real change in my activity. If I play my cards right and get my lazy butt in gear, I might be on active hear 10x as much as before! I love meeting new people here on DA, so many awesome artists and creative folk here! Hopefully that never changes as life goes on.
Like I said a couple months back: "I want to spread my name to other social websites!", atleast that's what I remember. So to be true to my word I'm going to start a Youtube channel with the same name, "DrakeArts". I'm planning on making it Digital Art and Video Game related. If I'm going to do this though, I'm going to need some help. So here's my question: Does anyone know any good recording software for recording Drawing Tutorials, Speedpaints, etc. for Photoshop? I have Fraps right now, but unfortunately i've been having a few issues with it and I want to see if there's anything else out there that's just as useful if not more. So if any of my art buddies out there who record art videos know of any cool software for that, I would greatly appreciate it if you note me or comment here. Also, I have a video out now but it doesn't have any background music with it. If your a music artist and have a few awesome beats I would love to feature your music in my art videos. Just note me or comment here. I really need some suggestions for this video: also ignore the audio if there is any, I was just testing the regular music tracks on the Video Manager. I'm still looking for some talented music artists
Gaming Thoughts and Review
I've been playing a lot of video games lately (if that's even news), but two games have really caught my interest. One I just got and the other isn't even out yet. The first one is Rogue Legacy by Cellar Door Games a indie platform game that I've been obsessively been playing and dying constantly over. If you haven't heard from it The game is a 2d platformer with rpg elements in it for PC and Playstation 3, 4, and Vita. You play a brave knight whose goal is to conquer an evil castle filled with blood thirsty enemies and 4 bosses who guard the throne room to the final boss. On your quest you will collect gold, armor pieces, and other useful objects that will help make your stronger for the upcoming enemies in the castle. Unfortunately, the guy you get those items with will eventually die, so he/she will pass those items to 1 out of the 3 kids (who have specific advantages, disabilities, and classes) that they have so that they could die doing the same thing over and over and over and over and over again! So yeah, the game is definitely not easy, which is one of the things I love the most about it! It really forces you to stay on your toes, especially since the castle and enemy placement will change after every generation. So the game revolves around three ideas: Difficulty, Skill, and Luck. I think this is a great game and I give it a definite 8/10, so if your looking for a good sized game that you can spend some free time Rogue Legacy is worth a pick up.
The second game that I've been pretty interested in recently is Nintendo's and Koei's Hyrule Warriors. First hearing about this game, I didn't really think much of it and honestly I thought it was going to be pretty bad. But after some time and a couple of gameplay videos I'm actually starting to like it more and more. I'm really liking how there slowly introducing some iconic Zelda characters with a small upgrade to there designs. I know there's going to be a lot of people who are going to hate the game because it's really different from a natural Zelda game and it has a dynasty warriors playstyle. But for me, I'm just going to enjoy it as a Dynasty Warriors game with Zelda Characters. What do you guys think, Hyrule Warriors, good or bad?
Artist | Student | Digital Art
My name is Chris Humphries and I'm a experienced digital artist who wants to get into the field of Game Design. I specialize in design and concepts. I can draw just about anything, just give me some simple keywords and I'll express my creativity to it's highest degree. I strive to do my best when it comes to art, it's one of my greatest passions. I've been so dedicated to art to the point where I've made it a goal to draw at least something every day of my life, and I hope to continue that until the very end.
I'm a freelance game designer searching for some work, if you want me to be apart of your project email me at: chrisHdrakearts@yahoo.com. also here's a portfolio of my work: chrishdrakearts.daportfolio.co…
