I often find myself too lazy to provide a nice stream of new artwork, but I do the best I can!

Pretend User Interface Fun (PUIF): Bobby
More fun with video game interfaces! This time, it's Bobby, Billy's friend.

The story is "Winds of the West". It doesn't seem to be going anywhere so far, but I'll still try drawing these characters, backdrops, and other ideas floating around in my head for the sake of practice. I'm not sure if I have the motivation to keep writing Winds of the West, but the setting alone can offer lots of ideas for me to draw. WotW is a pile of ideas, concepts, and stories taking place all in a science fiction/steampunk/fantasy wild west setting. I often daydream about if it was either an anime, video game, or movie. This picture is my way of fulfilling the ideas locked up deep inside my head.

Bobby is a more simple character in this pretend video game, with no extra resource bar besides the ones you see. But, he uses the power of IRON in Winds of the West lore, so he is a literal iron man compared to a certain man named Tony. Bobby can transform into an iron golem, and he can stretch out these iron limbs by growing more iron deposits from them, like branches of a tree. Giving him additional reach. He can even form massive iron shields to protect his friends. Sadly, because he isn't an "Elemental", he is vulnerable to physical attacks. Well, if he doesn't trnsform his body into iron before the moment of impact. Instead, he has a unique gameplay mechanic where he EATS iron, which can be scrap or actual ore (raw or refined), to power his abilities. His Energy Bar replenishes every time he eats iron.

Emerald Slayer Set
A very simple doodle to scrub my soul and practice speed drawing. So far, the more of these I do the better I feel. I've been playing a lot of Dark Souls 3 lately, so I feel sufficiently inspired to draw artwork like this!

Pretend User Interface Fun (PUIF): Billy
The main character of my story and set of concepts. His name is Billy, and the story is "Winds of the West". It doesn't seem to be going anywhere so far, but I'll still try drawing these characters, backdrops, and other ideas floating around in my head for the sake of practice. I'm not sure if I have the motivation to keep writing Winds of the West, but the setting alone can offer lots of ideas for me to draw. WotW is a pile of ideas, concepts, and stories taking place all in a science fiction/steampunk/fantasy wild west setting. I often daydream about if it was either an anime, video game, or movie. This picture is my way of fulfilling the ideas locked up deep inside my head.

Here's something I doodled up on a nice evening! It was fun to work with a very thick brush tool, and this was just the thing I needed to heal my current artistic/emotional fatigue. Mostly over my freelance work. It's exhausting to draw for a living!

This takes me back to my childhood. I've always loved video games, and I used to draw stat sheets for original characters! This picture in particular is a user interface concept. Just for fun, NOT actual concept art.

Okay, here's what all of this means. Each colored bar represents a combat stat. HP stands for hit points, which is how much damage Billy can take before he gets... killed, and it's game over for the player. EN stands for energy, which is a unique stat here. Usually, magic points are in the place of this stat. When energy is depleted, Billy can't use special abilities and powers. INVULN stands for, well, invulnerability! Another very unique stat. Billy is a very special guy... with the power to become wind and air itself! This means that all attacks go STRAIGHT THROUGH HIM. This is inspired by the anime, One Piece. Billy is a "Wind Man", pretty much. However, INVULN takes energy for it to regenerate, and acts as a shield to prevent HP damage. I got very clever with this concept, because Billy is weak to heat or cold based attacks, so fire can still burn him slightly. The only way to hit an "Elemental", such as Billy, is to use fire or ice bullets, and the enigmatic ability locked away in every human: Willpower. Not all characters in this pretend video game have this INVULN stat either. Characters that are "Elementals" have the INVULN stat. XP stands for... experience points! When this bar reaches the top, Billy gets stronger and more wise, going up a LEVEL which is displayed at the bottom. This is usually what makes some video games so addictive and fun to play. When this bar reaches the top, it resets and continues the cycle of leveling up again, with more experience points required for each and every next level.

Phew, that was fun to talk about! I hope you guys have as much fun looking at this picture as I had drawing it!

Winds of the West: On the Precipice
The main character of my story and set of concepts. His name is Billy, and the story is "Winds of the West". It doesn't seem to be going anywhere so far, but I'll still try drawing these characters, backdrops, and other ideas floating around in my head for the sake of practice.

It's been far too long since I drew anything like this, but the improvements are very palpable. I still have a long way to go, and I really dislike my tendency to go too slow with my lineart. I want my lineart to come out more fast and dynamic, rather than slow OR forced.

Please refrain mentioning any other websites. I want to distance my DeviantArt away from my private life.
