Hello! My name is Ash, I’ve been creating artwork since I can remember. I only recently started digital artwork, using a program called Sketchbook on the surface pro. I will be sharing that artwork, and other miscellaneous things here on my blog. Please bear with me while I try to comprehend how this stuff works, as this is the first time I’ve attempted at making such a thing. (It’ll take a bit of getting used to.) Today I’ll start off by posting my first piece of digital art and the edit that I recently made of it. Wish me luck! (or don’t, I won’t force you to.)
Hobbs (left) and Eli (right) are two characters that if I hadn’t created, I probably wouldn’t be the artist I am today. Hobbs is a goblin, and Eli is something I call an Orestone, which is basically a robot made of rock. A picture of Hobbs was one of the first characters I ever made. This is the first digital art I made so it’s a little rough around the edges.
In the edit I fixed up not all, but some lines and added a black and red necktie to Eli to give him more… “Personality”
I thought I would create something that shows off all of the main characters, and it’s the end of the school year, so what appropriate to create then a yearbook page?
Sorry! This took longer then expected to make. I made each character separately then put them onto the backdrop (which I also created) using an online software called Canva. The new character here is Rayva, who, similar to Denis, is a music artist. She joined up with Hobbs & crew to persuade her sister, whom has joined the group of villains causing terror and trying to stop Hobbs, to come back home. She’s a form of Ikay and is almost always happy, but a bit hyperactive at times. Before she joined Hobbs, she ran a large Disco club, which later was later demolished to make way for an expansion to the parking lot of a nearby mall. She later moved into a condo at a beach-side resort, where she later met Hobbs and Denis.
Hey everyone! I know it’s been a while since I last posted something, don’t worry! I can assure you that I haven’t left for all eternity. I’m currently working on a large project that will hopefully be complete by the 15th, no promises. Hope your day’s going great!
The Bitcoin Mines are literal, in my world anyway. I created a small logo just to hold you all back while I work on a larger project.
The Smitefall Island Bitcoin Mines are a series of mines that produce the most bitcoins in the world, a type of currency that is used in most of Stroanla, a country in the Southeast hemisphere. Stroanla is mostly inhabited by Robots and energy creatures, and is a huge producer of Copper, Iron, Coal, and Magnesium, aside from bitcoins. Smitefall Island is a large island on the west coast of Stroanla, and is where almost all of Stroanla’s bitcoins are mined, it is also a huge tourist trap. Blue has visited Smitefall Island on several occasions.
I finally figured out what I want Blue to look like, so here’s a picture of her head shot.
Blue is a tinkerer that works with non-technological contraptions and machines, she’s also skillful at general maintenance, architecture, and horticulture. As a child, she resorted to misdemeanor crimes to make money and have fun, this is due to her childhood “friends” forcing her to become a member of their crime group, and that she later adapted to this life of crime. As an adult she learned several previously mentioned skills. She later decided to travel the world and share her skills with others. She was exploring the fifth Trident Island when she met Hobbs, Eli, Buba, and Clark, and was later convinced to join them because of her clock repairing skills. She’s an Azat, a endangered race of creatures that look almost exactly like modern day ferrets, except for their human-like hair and blue tails. It is unknown what is slowly killing off the Azats.
Here’s another picture of Clark. It’s also my attempt at using the ruler tool to create rooms.
It seems that Clark isn’t to keen on having wallpaper. It would definitely brighten up this dreary room. Clark is as mysterious as ever, but this metallic room defiantly gives off a science like vibe. I used the ruler tool to try to create a few rooms, it turned out better than I thought. I also messed around with some lighting again, with the hanging light and the red light in the hallway. There’s a lot going on here.
Here’s a picture that I drew using the sketchbook pro subscription. (I can easily create backgrounds now!)
On the top of the leaning tower of explosive creatures is Mhical, (yes, it is spelled that way) he’s the captain of a small ship called the Garglesalt, which is known for illegally trespassing in government territory several times. Mhical is a creature known as a Kaboom, which are dynamite like creatures originating from the Cogpeic Islands, three very large islands containing something known as the Great Sulfur Desert. Louie (Middle) is Mhical’s assistant, he was hired by Mhical to help him find the Marvolandia Plates, a set of missing ancient copper chain mail. This adventure lead to a friendship between the two, and they later went on more quests eventually finding some very fascinating, terrifying, and important discoveries about why the seventh Seasol Island is so heavily guarded. Louie is a race known as Raros, creatures also originating from the Cogpeic Islands. Boomba (Bottom) is the latest member of the dynamic duo, which is now a trio of course, they joined just shortly after Mhical and Louie’s trip to the Seasol islands. They’re an android from the second Trident island, created in a now demolished building on the island’s southern shore, not to far from where Clark lives. It is unknown how, when, or why they where created or why they wanted to join Mhical on the Garglesalt. They are one of a kind and seem to have some sort of sentience.
Here’s an older picture I created featuring two different races, Flambay and Ikays.
On the left is a Flambay, a race of fire creatures, they inhabit a body made from rich magomelo tree roots found deep in the ashlands, an island made entirely of volcanic ash and soot. Every few years they have to switch bodies and find a new magomelo wood “host” or else their bodies will compleatly burn out, killing them. Might want to steer clear of large bodies of water too. On the right is an Ikay, a race of goo creatures found primarily in the forgotten lands (also known as the Seasol islands), a large archipelago (group of islands) covered in buildings, structures, and artifacts created by an unknown ancient civilization. They live inside things like trashcans, barrels, boxes, and other things used for containment, they can then duck into their homes for protection and sleep, similar to a hermit crab. They mark their homes with a radioactive sign so no one accidentally opens their homes while they sleep.
Similar to the first picture of Clark that I posted, this is a drawing having to do with lighting & shadows. I wanted to create a picture with a light source that would cast shadows in different directions, why not have some fun with it!
I decided to go with a different style for Hobbs (Right) and I think it turned out great! On the left is Bertha, another character venturing with Hobbs and crew. She’s a warrior known for her swordsmanship, but she’s also known for being able to successfully solve conflicts with enemies peacefully, but only to ones who don’t deserve her wrath. Outside of the battlefield she’s calm and friendly, although she’s quick tempered. She’s a Kivis, a race of statue-like coal creatures, which are somehow fireproof. They can spew fire and are almost immobile, except for their arms, mouths, and in Bertha’s case the horn. They move around by jumping from place to place, sometimes causing rectangular imprints in soft terrain. In this picture, for whatever reason, Hobbs and Bertha thought that this would be a good way to roast marshmallows. Disclaimer: DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS, but if your an adult, go for it!
I acquired the pro version of SketchBook earlier today, so I will be creating new and improved artwork soon! I still have some artwork that will be posted that I created prior to acquiring this software, so stay tuned for that also!
I created this picture a few months ago of characters that I had thought of while contemplating, except for Clyde that is.
I’ll go left to right for descriptions. Chaxity is an agent working for an unknown organization, which may or may not exist for all we know, she’s not what you would call stealthy though. She’s a race known as a Bombam, which is basically a race of giant bomb people that explode when angry, or come in contact with fire that is. Denis is a goblin that works as a DJ for a living, and is able to provide epic beats for any occasion, or just party in general. For Mordo I would refer to this page: https://moonstersclub.wordpress.com/2017/04/26/photoshop-mordo/ . Domro works with Mordo, it is unknown if he/she is a shadder like Mordo, because of their strange color pallet compared to Mordo and the other shadders. But whoever they are, they don’t talk much. For Clyde I would refer to this page: https://moonstersclub.wordpress.com/2017/04/25/lazy-tuesday-clyde/ . Jord is the mayor of an underground city named Naterlite that inhabits Jelcu, a race of geometric slime creatures. He’s also a big hugger.
