Still Abiding by lastlabyrinth Still Abiding by lastlabyrinth
"The God-King reigned in Matima, and the priestesses of the Pure One were slaughtered.

At the foot of mighty Skalas, Saktina's fortress stood empty for decades thence, its white halls stained with righteous blood. But one day the Oracle of Yulaspietal called out to Kloi, the apostate, and was heard-- though Kloi slept, and the Oracle was thought to sleep forever...

The dream of a dead prophet lead Kloi north to the silent Citadel, and it was given to her to carve away the evil stirring there. But the Lord of Night, Adiyan, summoned His own champion to the fastness gates, and Kloi was driven further in to the darkened heart of Skalas-- to the hollow altar of the Unfulfilled One, and his crumbling prison."

Thanks! I gave the line work a little more prominence than I feel is usual for my painted pieces so I'm glad to hear you think it looks alright :)

Sorry! Ah!
You're right, you post plenty of stuff on tumblr and I can see it there, it's just that I like to see your art and I like to see it get the recognition it deserves I guess. I think the stuff that you feel is "bad" is actually quite good, even if it's not an in-depth piece like this one

It's okay! And aw, just 'cause I don't post something here doesn't mean I think it's bad. I tend to use dA as more of a portfolio thing, since I sometimes forget about my actual portfolio site for a year at a time. So I try to limit the stuff I submit to the main gallery to just the things I feel are my best work.

My dear, I snooped your gallery before responding to this, and your AP portfolio absolutely annihilates the low-concept garbage I produced for my AP portfolio (almost 8-9 years ago now). If you practice even half as much as I did, you will one day be able to art like whatever you want.

jeez I hope so though. I'm mostly worried right now that art school will actually kill me. A completely logical [mild] fear.

Art classes can be very challenging, especially if you have a lot of studio classes in the same semester. The best advice I can think of is to be mindful of yourself as a student of art-- meaning the more receptive you can be to learning, the better. Your efforts will not always earn you perfect scores. Just remember that you are making student work, and don't let it get you down. Until the day we stop producing art, our best work is always yet to come.

Also, you will have a lot fewer stereotypical angsty tussles with your art profs if you are willing to hear their criticism to the last and file it away instead of arguing, even if you disagree. My biggest regret is not being a more receptive pupil. I had some very charged exchanges with my professors, and I look back on those moments with shame at how headstrong I was.

thanks. I have 3 studio classes for foundation year...2 of which I'm nervous for strictly because they're in media that I know/I expect more of myself than I do in the 3rd class (spatial dynamics/3D art essentially...stuff I've never done before), but mostly I'm excited (and scared, my only art class ever has been AP art - and I literally was the only one who put any effort into the class).

I mostly enjoy crits. Which may be strange. Actually, that's really weird come to think of it.
I just...improvement, fast improvement, is really important to me right now ⁻\(ッ)/⁻

I know the feeling! It depends on where you go, I suppose, but I found myself pleasantly surprised by how involved my college classmates were in their studio art classes, after how little effort there was in high school (and I was a champion art underachiever myself).

It may be strange to like critique, but it's a good view to have. If you can take in critique in a way that's graceful and constructive you'll be miles ahead of most artists-- students and pros alike.
