Aye, Sea Turtles

I'm Scott, I'm 25 and welcome to my blog. Feel free to stay a while and check it out. I love geekiness, the stars, space, just about anything to do with human progress. I commonly post music, or pictures I might find hilarious or beautiful. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Someone posted a Sonic the Hedgehog bead-sprite earlier so I thought I’d show them up with my Protoss Carrier from Starcraft.

A collection of Game of Thrones portraits from various artists

These are all pretty excellent. I think Drogo has to be my favorite.

For Scott.

So I was talking to my buddy Dan on facebook tonight and this happened…
"Dan: so what you up to tonight?

Me: Workasaurus rex


Dan:one of the most responsible dinosaurs

Me: Haha agreed



Dan: way better than lazycephalosaurus or deadbeatatops

Me: …I demand that you draw rediculously cute versions of these”And it was so…

Lighthouse at sunset. Part 1 of 4. Oil on canvas.
Our final project in Painting II was a series of paintings with our choice of theme, size, and quantity. I settled on four imagined landscapes, each with ruins slowly crumbling and being swallowed up by nature. I also set each at a different time of day. Photographic reference was used solely for figuring out some of the colors; form and lighting were completely invented.

Hyperballad. Micron pen on Bristol board, colored digitally in Photoshop.
This was a particularly fun assignment, as I had to select a quote, poem, or song lyric and illustrate it in the style of an established artist. The lyrics come from Björk’s “Hyperballad”, while the illustration style mimics that of Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy and other popular comics.
I really enjoy working in wide or tall formats like this, and I felt it would nicely fit the imagery of a tall cliff. I also love how this song starts so beautifully, Björk’s voice soft and haunting, and that decidedly unsettled feeling as the lyrics turn utterly creepy. Here that turning point of the song is a narration spaced out to evoke that same sense of increasing dread as you follow the words down to the rocks below.
This song also holds a special place in my heart as it is one Stef introduced me to when we first started dating.
“I go through all this before you wake up, so I can feel happier to be safe up here with you.”

Self explanatory.

I am so down for this right now.

The Butcher of Khardov. Micron pen on paper.
The other day I got it in my head to draw some characters from Privateer Press relaxing a bit. I mean, they must have hobbies and leisurely pursuits while they’re not waging war, right?
