sum good ole' stuff in 'ere


Well, greetings there, DA. It's been an immeasurably long time since I've thought of getting on here to post anything, but after graduating and getting prepared for graduate school, I figured it was time to reestablish whatever online artistic presence I had before, and hopefully further it, so here's a piece from not last year's secret santa at Pixelation, but the year before-- 2015-16's. I'll be submitting this year's piece soon, too. 

In any case, my gift receiver's interests were the genre of steampunk, landscapes, and cats, and thus I tried to include all of these facets into a conglomerate work of my imagination. I tried to stay restricted to a limited palette, and I wanted to keep the textures from being overtly detailed in certain areas-- I hope it was effective! There are certain areas I certainly feel that I could improve upon now, too.

Hope everyone has been well, and that my followers-- if you're still out there-- are getting along well in life! I definitely miss conversing with everyone!

This is the conclusion I came to this week. Wednesday, I was in a car crash that could have been much, much worse than it was. Thankfully, I escaped with barely any injuries, and I am incredibly thankful for that and have realized how precious life is and how quickly it can be taken away. It was a horrifying experience, and yet it served to show me that we all need a wake-up call every now and then.

As for an update on me; I'm currently attending college majoring in Art and probably getting a degree in education so I can teach art as well as create it. I love helping people and bringing my influences to others, so I feel as though that will definitely be something I'll enjoy. I'm also playing soccer with an awesome team at college. It was different playing with people I've never met before when I'd played with my high school team most of my entire life, so it is certainly a heartening experience. Alongside that, I'm also coaching a team of 9-10 year old players and they absolutely amazing.

College life is hectic; tons of paintings due all the time, plus papers, homework, and the like from other classes filling up my time. The hectic and busy schedule is what led to my crash, and I've realized that I need to prioritize things and spend more time resting and eating regularly rather than be on the go 24/7.

In any case, hope you all are doing fantastic; it's been a while since I've heard from tons of you. It's really unfortunate how distant people become as they grow older and away from communities. I really miss talking to a lot of people I've met online.

afergusonart's Profile Picture
Artist | Student | Varied
United States

My name's Adam, I recently graduated Roanoke College majoring in Fine Art as well as minoring in Education, receiving a Collegiate Professional License to teach. I graduated with Honors in the Art major. I have worked in artistic fields my entire life and am proficient in oil painting, drawing, pixel art, sculpture, and digital artwork. I have worked contractually and as a freelance agent creating artwork for various independent game companies and have also worked with commissions. I am familiar with other kinds of painting and crafting as well.

If I had to describe myself, I would propose that I am an imaginative, adventurous, and creative person. I strive to be the best that I can be in all walks of life, whether it be working with students, creating artwork, playing soccer, weight training, etc. I want the quality of my work to reflect the amount of care and forethought that I put into it, and I want to showcase myself as a strong, knowledgeable, and responsible young adult. I have multiple roles in leadership and management, having founded and ran the Roanoke College Men's Club Soccer team from 2013 - 2016, and I have also worked in several other leadership roles in my college. I have good experience working with others and managing business-related affairs.

I love all forms of art, and I love to paint, send me a note if you want to know more!

much, much too late of me to say-- but thank you so much! this is the first time I've been on DA in months, and it disappoints me vastly that I wasn't able to reply to this accordingly... hope you're still out there, and that life has been treating you well! :)

No problem at all! Life has been looking up recently for me; thanks, and I hope you're doing wonderfully yourself.

Just out of curiosity, what program do you use? My first console was a Sega, so I've always loved pixel art.
