|I'm testing the willingness of total strangers to give me imaginary Internet points.|
Finally got around to drawing this gem concept!
Created in vast volcanic forge-colonies, Obsidians don’t bother with manifesting weapons- they charge in, shatter, and keep reforming as the situation demands.
Opposing forces quickly learn not to shatter them unless absolutely necessary, but they’re awfully brittle, so good luck with that.
They fold hard to any sort of mass-bubbling, but beyond that they’re wonderfully useful- if quiet and creepy- shock troops.
A sketch of some Yima Cartel architecture.
The angle I’m going for is “Apple store plus 50s/60s domestic futurism”- gentle curves, rounded corners, circles, orbs, canisters, and judiciously-placed sharp angles and top-heaviness.
Something approachable, yet inspiring- “Come to us, and all your needs will be fulfilled with style and grace.“
Some of my favorite artists are Jen Zee, Nils Hamm, Igor Kieryluk, and Ai Weiwei.
I am a self-taught digital artist who, in retrospect, probably should have gotten Photoshop instead of Flash. Whatever, it's a moot point now.
