Moth/butterfly creature for character design class~
For character design we had to create a Wild West stylized character~ There are still some problems that I’ll fix later on in the semester ;; Our teacher wanted us to have a story to go along with our character sooo here’s my silly story:
To the less fortunate, Amala has been dubbed the West’s personal Robin-Hood. To the Wealthy, she is a wanted criminal known as the Orphan Outlaw. Amala, a Native American youth, was raised in a western orphanage after the disappearance of her parents. She lived in peace with her fellow orphans and was considered the ‘big sister’ of the pack. One day, the sheriff and his gang, who were known gamblers, sold the orphanage to pay off their debts, leaving Amala and her siblings out in the streets. Amala, deciding to take matters into her own hands, begins robbing the sheriff, his gang, and the rich scoundrels they associate with. And in the process, discovers that they might just have dealt a hand in her parents disappearance….

Over Beauty, there has always hung the cloud of destiny and all-devouring time.
Beauty has been invoked, re-figured and described since antiquity as a fleeting moment of happiness and the inexhaustible fullness of life, doomed from the start to a redemptive yet tragic end.
In this interpretation by Rino Stefano Tagliafierro, this beauty is brought back to the expressive force of gestures that he springs from the immobility of canvas, animating a sentiment lost to the fixedness masterpieces.
Its as though these images which the history of art has consigned to us as frozen movement can today come back to life thanks to the fire of digital invention.
A series of well selected images from the tradition of pictorial beauty are appropriated, (from the renaissance to the symbolism of the late 1800s, through Mannerism, Pastoralism, Romanticism and Neo-classicism) with the intention of retracing the sentiment beneath the veil of appearance.
An inspiration that returns to us the sense of one fallen, and the existential brevity that the author interprets as tragic dignity, with an unenchanted eye able to capture the profoundest sense of the image.
Beauty in this interpretation is the silent companion of Life , inexorably leading from the smile of the baby, through erotic ecstasies to the grimaces of pain that close a cycle destined to repeat ad infinitum.
They are, from the inception of a romantic sunrise in which big black birds fly to the final sunset beyond gothic ruins that complete the piece, a work of fleeting time.

CAN YOU SURVIVE AS AN ARTIST?
This was a question asked of me and below is my answer.
I’ve always been interested in going into the art field. Although I’m not a spring chicken, I’ve always had a love for illustration but never pursued it. But the one thing that scares me is what I read in art forums like conceptart that paints the opportunities for freelance illustrators as very bleak. Is it realistic to pursue it as full-time work or has the market shrunk and only the very best get the lion’s share of the work?
I truly feel that yes, talent and skill are a big component. But more than anything it is the individuals will and desire to pursue it. One needs to be aggressive, have no fear and never give up. Most people won’t succeed in this career because they put up a wall of resistance, procrastination. A lot of excuses are made as to why they can’t get things started or are already predicting failure. Is it easy, no. But can it be done? YES. You must determine what it is you truly love to draw or paint or sculpt etc…
I feel there are many opportunities to create your own brands these days. Does it mean just signing up and creating your own Internet store on sites that produce everything and you get a minimal amount of revenue. I do not believe so. Any sites that have thousands of people on them already selling their work is more like finding a needle in a haystack and will just make you drown out even more. It means you need to be the innovator; you need to be the one who gets up and gets out. Just because everyone is doing one thing does not mean it is the right way or will be effective for you. Try many things, some will succeed and some will fail. Embrace that and carry on.
