Well.... Considering the last time I updated this thing was roughly LAST YEAR, it's about time for an update.

As usual, things are busy on my end. Some of you already know I'm working for roughly 10 hours a day and have recently traded some of those hours for schooling in this recent semester. Intermediate Algebra and Ecology (fun classes, right?), both I've found rather boring for a couple reasons. The Algebra class is mostly review for me, but that's because the majority of the class didn't have a math class in the last 3-4 years (on average). The Ecology course is interesting, and I am learning things in the course (most of which are helping with something that will be discussed later), but a rather hilarious discovery is that I've been exposed to enough of the details of each sub-topic being discussed that I can see how things are working. Irony comes in when I ask a question to the teacher to find that she doesn't know the answer. That's when a different classmate usually gives an answer (and usually one that appears to be accurate) so the class and the teacher learn something unexpected.

With work, sometime mid-November, I got a job offer (yes, I was OFFERED A JOB) from the local Staples manager. The whole thing could have been classified as a divine appointment, as events went like this: I get off of work at Panda Express, already having had a rather rotten day, and get in my car with full intent to go up to Walmart for a new car battery. When I go to start the car, all the electrical systems shut off and the engine doesn't even turn. About ready to throw a fit, I call my mom and she says to walk to the bank (which was in the same shopping center) and then go to the nearby Kmart to get the new battery. While on my way to Kmart, the Staples manager stops his car in the shopping center driveway, calls me out, hands me his business card, and asks me how much I'm getting paid at Panda. I tell him and he says that he'll top it (it was by 50¢) if I work for him. With how the job market has been lately and the fact that the pizza place I worked at was going nowhere fast, I took up the offer and now work both Panda Express and Staples.

So, with working both those jobs at roughly 10 hours a day, it's been difficult to do anything mostly due to getting used to a morning schedule.

Now for the question...



A few of you know some of the story behind my OC/Dragonsona, Talon Laonar. A select few actually know it in greater detail. Here is my question to those still listening:

Who want's to help with a project they can use in a portfolio?

I'm mainly looking for artists to lighten the load on the person who offered his artistic talent for the sake of this new project. He's taken the lead as the Art Director for this project, with his criteria of being willing to learn and having some basic artistic ability (digital preferred, but he'll take what he can get). If you're interested at all (artistic or just interested in general), contact me via the following methods and I will grant greater details then. Respond ASAP please.

Inner Quarrel by TalonRGero
Inner Quarrel
This particular piece was done using a modified style I learned from Marvel. As you can see, shading is hatching. The only reason why this image has such clean line-work and coloring is due to the process itself (which, by the way, only works with Illustrator CS5 or newer).

1. Sketch and ink the line-work using traditional medium.
2. Scan
3. Load up into Adobe Illustrator
4. Select the image object
5. Rasturize
6. Object>Image Trace> Make and Expand  <-- This part does 2 things at once: cleans up the line-work & removes or simplifies the removal any accidental markings (food splatters, ect.)

From step 6, you can either continue working in Illustrator, or export the line-work to Photoshop and work with it from there. If you're working with color and not using any ink-based shading methods (hatching, cross-hatching, speckling, ect.), you can simplify your initial coloring by doing it in Illustrator using the pencil or path tools.

"I have a tablet, why would I want to do the coloring in Illustrator?"

The biggest reason lies in the image type difference between Photoshop and Illustrator. Photoshop, as most know, is pixel based. Illustrator is VECTOR based. Simply put, Illustrator is Photoshop's Path tool on steroids. You can edit the colored areas by changing how the path flows. For example, the "Destroy the Beast!" banner object has multiple points in the path (or vertices) that can be selected individually to change the banner's curvature. Why is it simpler? Because of this, you can actively change a object's shape and, ergo, the shape of the fill without erasing and repainting. Additionally, you can change the fill color and so much more without having do deal with pesky pixels going astray.

Of course, to each their own, but it makes it easier for me to work with my images. :3


As for the motive for the image.... let's just say this is the constant reality I deal with where I go to church. There is more I can do, more that can be offered, more that I see and so on than the religious superstition allows. The quarrel is the action to take from this point.

Pokemon Creation
This is a concept for the logical order of the Pokemon creation. I just saw some patterns and thought I'd write it down. What do you think? Comments, not favorites, would be most appreciated.

UPDATE

I changed the order of the first three steps slightly. Didn't make sense for Giritina to organize nothing.

Creation by TalonRGero
Creation
This is the creation sequence of the Pokemon world that came by logical order of necessity. As to whether or not it's accurate is of no consequence, considering it's a timeline for a fictional world/universe. I'm posting this here as a way to check to see if it works well enough to be fleshed out a little.

Dialga unleashes the River of Time, creating the flow through which we all learn and grow. Time flows into the different dimensions and begins to flow and twist in different ways, showing where the dimensions will intersect, run parallel or fork into new paths.
