Oh wow was I ever surprised to come to dA and find that this had gotten a Daily Deviation! I am totally honored!!
Maeda Environment Concept by peach-mork

I honestly struggle a lot when it comes to environments--characters have always been my thing but the latest project I've been working on has been pushing me to work harder! It's called the ISHTAR Project. I am currently in the development stage, putting together all the concepts and designs I'll need to move onto actual production of the actual trailer, and when that rolls around I'll be starting a Kickstarter so that I can pay people to help animate, build and add the finishing touches to my short! I know I can't do this daunting project all on my own, so I'll be looking for people to recruit in the future! :)

Thanks to this DD I am further inspired to push forward with this project, and will be posting more work in the future!
Thank you everyone very much for the watches, faves and comments I receive. It really means a lot to me. Working full time leaves little opportunity to actually respond in the ways I want to, so just ... THANK YOU. Your support means the world. It really does.

I will be getting back to a lot of you guys soon! I've been so busy lately!
By the way, I got my camera last weekend! It's a Nikon D70 with a 28-80mm lens! I got it for only 250. I'm going to be taking so many pictures this week!
Cheers!

Hey everyone!!
I know some of you out there must know some things about photography. I'm looking to invest in a good camera (probably a Nikon or Canon) I know the lens I want but I'm not sure which brand (or model) to choose!
I am interested in a 50mm lens for some extreme close ups with bokeh (but also be able to take some nice landscape shots as well). I've been looking at these flickrs for inspiration www.flickr.com/photos/caitlinl… www.flickr.com/photos/lookthro…

I am a newbie to photography but i want to invest in a good and sturdy camera (also reasonably priced) something not too expensive but is of a professional quality and yet is intuitive for new users.
I see a lot of these flickr users have nikon D70s, D90s etc. Anyone can verify which I should start with?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Btw, commissioners, I have not forgotten you! I am taking a little break but next week you'll see some more commissions!

I must've done something weird to my watch list one night (probs since I was getting way too much to look through) and unchecked way too many peeps and I didn't even know who I was following anymore, or what modifications I've done (and it didn't help with all the namechanges), so I just cleaned out a lot of peeps and re-added them! So if I've just added you again it's because I wasn't getting your updates and I wanted to keep getting them!!
There was a weird phase not too long ago with dA figuring out their own system. It's a bit friendlier now, so I'm going to try to be more active again. I've got some more Jem fanstuff coming up, as well as more attempts to do more concept-style rendering. Boring for some, but I gotta keep practicing!!

Anyway, just a venting post really. Happy autumn!!

So today we got to see a screening of the Monster High 3D shows and I was excited since I worked on the beginning of it last year before I took 8 months off for school. I'm now on another project, and we were seeing a show I was not directly a part of ('Ghouls Rule' --- I had worked on 'Why Do Ghoul's Fall in Love') but I got to see all the minor characters (or should I say 'monsters') that I designed on the big screen; I never realized how much I had been a part of this show's inception 'till I got to see it today, and I must say that I'm very proud to have my name on that!

So any of you guys or ghouls out there, if you haven't seen it, just go take a look at some of our work! It's on youtube right now! Even the episode is right here, and I realized today that it's in like 26 languages!!
www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6ny5j…

I designed those ghosts, those bats, that ice statue, all those minor chars roaming around! I got to design Gil, Clawd, and Mannytaur into 3D! It may seem small to some, but it was the first time I ever really got to see my design work on screen! It's a good feeling. I can't wait 'till what you guys see what I'm working on now at Nerdcorps, but you'll have to wait 'till March. ;)

I'll try to upload some of the MH char sheets I did soon. Ghouls rule!!

OK so I've been living off loans and need some money for next months rent check! I should be getting a job in the forseeable future, but in the meantime I need some moolah to help keep my sis and I afloat!

OK so I am opening a batch of 5 slots. 35 Bucks for one character with a simple bg.

Here's some examples:

Give me a ref and a bit of backstory if you like. A second character is another 30.

This is a pretty rare opportunity so for those who are interested, please bid fast!
Edit: Those who want a spot, please send me a note!

I'm working on something I'm actually sorta excited about! Come on down to Harbour Centre on April 27th from 6-9pm and check out our grad years stuff! I will be abouts somewhere with my stuff. C:
Here's hoping to another good year in the industry!

t.co/Se57tKNB also here's a preview of things to come because DA won't let me post pics anymore since I'm not feeding them money

That's why I'm never here anymore! I miss working--it was so much easier than having to be my own boss. I'm too picky!

Either way, hopefully I'll have something decent to put up here in the next few months. My style is going in a different direction to get a job in film (or games) potentially. I really want to do storyboards but it seems like the jobs for that here are few and far between.

I'm actually way more active on tumblr now since it's so easy. If you want to see my posts about political stuff and kittens, then by all means add me peachm.tumblr.com If not, just wait until May!

I haven't been active here much, and expect that for awhile at least. It's a lot easier for me to post on tumblr. I've gotta put some more work up there, but in the meantime it's just a few sketches and stupid funny shit I like.

What I'm trying to say is, LETS ADD EACH OTHER. :heart: :heart: :heart:

UPDATE: I uploaded the animated bit I did of the opening storyboard I did if you guys wanna see. youtu.be/Nz97dZMrKDc
This is why I am not an animator :)

So about a year and a half ago I was heavily invested in creating a pitch for a "Jem and the Holograms" remake. I had met lots of industry folks who worked (or had in the past) for Hasbro and offered me advice on how to go about it. As far as I'm aware, they received an e-mail from me a year ago with a couple small preview images of my redesigns but I got no response. I'm putting them up here now because I've decided to shelve the project.

As much as I would love (and still would love) to work on a Jem television show I realize just one person can't make it happen. I also realize the internet is a very valuable tool when it comes to things like this, so if you like my designs, or if you just want a Jem remake in general, you should write to Hasbro and tell them to produce more female-property shows. Ponies are great but that shouldn't be the one exception on their list.

Hasbro once again has the full rights to Jem and the Holograms, and now they've been airing the old show on The Hub; they're rebuilding a fanbase, and now have the power to make more dolls. Hasbro needs only to make the decision to revive the franchise and it can be done.

This project has been a labor of love for me so I don't necessarily expect it to go anywhere, but I hope that maybe Hasbro will realize that there is a lot of potential for female shows (especially after the success of MLP:FIM), and that a good deal of people would be interested in seeing Jem reinvented.

Wow, I can't believe you read this far. How totally outrageous!

And so to keep this cohesive, these are the pitch Jem designs I did:

Things Have Been Happening

Long time no see, internets.

I've had a job over the past few months as a character designer on a really fun female property. It's been really good so far, and working for Nerdcorps has been a pleasure.

I'll be working on some epic things this fall and getting into 3D to work on a much-delayed personal project. Stay tuned.

DAWW THANKS EVERYONE FOR THE BIRTHDAY WISHES! I had a pretty good/hilarious birthday. I completely lost my voice and went to an interview today, having to speak in barely a whisper. Despite it being the quietest interview ever (only my side, haha) it went awesomely and I'm going to take their offer.

Anyway, I've been suffering from this lost voice thing for two days straight, so I went to see the doctor about it this morning after my interview, but my doctor said it was just from a cold and that it should be fine soon. He told me that if I had to talk, it was better to strain my voice to talk than to whisper (apparently whispering strains the vocal chords even more! Who knew?).

So I came home, talking to my sister with this really broken, messed up voice (think the way Chunk speaks in the Goonies when they're forcing him to tell his life story. Seriously, just like that!) and I start undressing to get comfortable after running all my errands, but there's a demanding knock at the door and when I open it, my sister's standing out in the hallway with one of our best friends and a cake! I was so overwhelmed/startled I started thanking them in this broken Chunk-esque voice and they were just about pissing themselves with laughter. There I was, half-naked with an uncontrollably-loud broken Chunk voice, standing in the door telling them how sweet they were for surprising me. Apparently the landlord was down the hall. I hope he doesn't ask about that, haha.

Anyway, it was a totally awesome birthday. I'm always impressed with how my friends spoil me. Thanks everyone for your messages. It just made my day that much better!
