The things I do while not working



Red by tokkamak
Another study. Analytical approach to colors is starting to work for me. If I can't feel it — I'll calculate it.

My hands are in desperate need of being transplanted from my ass to some place they belong to. Way to go, tokkamak, with 8 months pause with painting, which was sacrificed for gaining animation skill I doubt I'll find some application any time soon. Frak!

Hello everyone, tokkamak here!
I'm a self-taught artist, who loves drawing/painting/stitching/imagining and all sorts of cool visual stuff. I also love learning new things and improving my skills. Right now I do mobile games graphics for a living, I like my job for now. I dream that someday I'll be skillful enough to work for some video game studio as concept artist.

I'm ok with critique. Actually, that's not true. I love critique, especially constructive one:) So feel free to comment, share your thoughts and knowledge if you so wish. Thanks in advance for that.

Unfortunately, I can't thank everyone personally, so I'll say it here. Thank you for faves and watch! This is very inspiring and means a lot to me.

Hello everyone, tokkamak here!

Started working on ling-planned comic series. This where classic 2d animation course really came in handy, as the most important thing we're taught there is capturing motion, searching for expressive and understandable poses — which is exactly the thing I lacked in all my previous attempts (let's be fair, I had a lot of problems even with static poses, getting real mess when it used to come to motion as I had absolutely no understanding of basic body construction, well, I mean I knew it theoretically, but there is a significant difference between knowing and understanding).

I'm almost sure it's going to be a very long journey, as basically our creative team consists of two wannabe-cool-comic-book-guys including myself as the only artist and my collab as writer.

So... The story is set in post-apocalyptic world that emerged from combination of natural disaster and followup wars for resources. I had to drop my favorite nuclear war this time, yet we have other reasons for variety of mutations, dangerous wastelands and all those sweet little things that make screwed up world a nice thing to tell about. This is the world 15 y.o Grace is traveling with her robot companion CodX. Being engineering wonderchild Grace is a little bit too pragmatic, while CodX, former library bot is so to say an impersonation of high moral standards.

Looks like we've finally settled our "production pipeline". I just can't do all the work digitally, I don't know, maybe that's some sort of side effect of the course, where we're required to do all our animation assignments on paper, which results in literally hundreds of drawings made traditionally. However, digital inking and coloring works perfectly well with pencil "skeleton" made on paper.

We'll see how it turns out. Stay tuned!
