Helmet Set 1
Well... everything in my body hurts, especially the joints, but... I still managed to draw something.

These helmet concept, things, are actually early designs for the Otherworlds Table RPG/DnD game that I am currently working on. Expect more to come soon.

Well, guys, Its officially February and stupidly enough, Im back living at home with my twisted parents... again.... ugh. But only because the stupid government cant seem to understand how to give a stress-free life to a rational mind. All I do now is wait for University...

BUT UNTIL THEN! Ive decided to make a LONG-LASTING LEGACY for myself in the form of JEWELLERY
---------------
This contest revolves around artists submitting concept art for a key piece of jewellery (A Ring) that will act as a platform for my legacy. I want this ring to be a beacon and to be an image of beauty and elegance. Its quite simple; submit your art, and the one I like most receives all my points.
I then intend on making a superior custom order for said ring.

RULINGS:
  • Unlimited amount of submissions permit-able.
  • Submissions must be clear and as thorough as possible.
  • Extra consideration will be given to artists who present their works at different angles, show size comparison, anatomically-correct fitting, and measurements in order to give the best impression possible.
  • Extra consideration will also be given when considering the longevity and cost of the ring. That means quality and quantity need to be relatively-equal and the cost should not be hemorrhaging.
  • To ensure proper communication, please also consider sending me a note on here on DA.

Ring Specs
:
- MUST be a size 10 US, (19.8mm inner diameter).
- Cannot be gold or silver-plated, as they rub and wear off. Please use solid gold or sterling silver for your settings.

- THEME: The theme of the ring follows a spacey, nebula, galaxy colour, (Apatite, Alexandrite, Sapphire, Blue Goldstone, Blue Diamond, Labradorite, Various breeds of Opal, are all deep spacey-theme gemstones. Other gemstones may apply), and follows a certain elegant, mysterious, tranquil yet powerful sentiment. Its meant to resemble a kind of tranquility amongst the stars, curious yet destructive when provoked.

- Design: The main feature of the ring MUST be a large aforementioned gemstone. It should fit nicely into the setting and not look too bulgy, nor should the set look "wally", (example: www.etsy.com/ca/listing/509119… ), there should be an elegant flow to the setting of the ring so that everything looks natural. I enjoy the curvaceous theme presented with futuristic design - all those swirls and spherical shapes. For that reason I personally find Filigree rings quite aesthetically-pleasing. I am also quite fond of Antique gothic and Victorian-era rings that seem to have a story behind them.

I also like to obscure the edges of the main gemstone, so that everything seems expertly-interconnected, a sort of dance thats present with the setting, (example: www.etsy.com/ca/listing/215079… ), as well as subtle variations in colour as everything locks together.

Examples:
www.etsy.com/ca/listing/255318…
   
    This ring's main feature is a circular woven band of emerald beads that give the viewer's impression that the ring consists of one, large, royal emerald. Atop the emerald cluster is a spider-like rhinestone motif that extends outwards from the middle of the gem cluster. Even while different in colour, the rhinestone bands compliment the emerald beading as they are set in very much the same way, allowing the viewer to individually see each rhinestone in the strip. Together, the dark vibrant greens and the shining whites reflect against one another, creating an iridescent effect that can only be summarized as enchanting. The ring captivates it's audience wonderfully, using the distracting setting of the rhinestones to hide the fact that the main piece consists of beaded emeralds and not one gigantic royal gemstone. In light of this, some may find this ring to be a dull, boring imperfection. However, I personally appreciate the delicate cutting involved in segmenting and connecting so many brilliant stones - to diligently capture the curvaceous aspects in the art of jewellery. While all the all the individual piecing may overwhelm the eye, none of us can deny the effect that comes with inspecting such curvaceous art time and time again...

www.etsy.com/ca/listing/172338…

    As described by its maker, this stunning feature is comprised of "two oval-shaped cabochon Blue Sapphires set in a bypass twist setting surrounded with pave set light blue sapphire handcrafted in Black Plated Sterling Silver" (No idea what any of that means, but it sounds hella cool and looks awesome). To merely accept these words would not suffice as there much more about this piece than some superficial description's summarization - the snaking harmony it exhibits is too much to ignore.

Other examples:

Im taking things slow. Ive had a massive migrain due to stress for the past few days and its been driving me insane. The stress was induced by my familial problems... but thats over and done with now as I am now a permanent resident of the University. Its a great lifestyle after I get used to it. There is still a lot to learn, and frankly, if I dont adapt and make the most of whats given to me, I wont really enjoy living alone here and Ill be stuck in some perpetual nightmare. Ive felt what a perpetual nightmare is like, and to be clear, it is a lot worse than it sounds.

Given a few more days, Ill have a comfortable sleeping routine, Ill have a nice big storage locker to put my stuff in and will be free to roam around the University and get in with a bunch of groups. I have all the time in the world, and the year just started so why not make the most of it and get to know as many people as possible? ^ . ^

The first beginning to things are always typically the most difficult times. As for me, the first day here at the University was widely an overwhelming experience. If it wasnt the terrible cold outside, it would be my 80 pound luggage that really set me in for the night. I came in hungry, cold, sore, and tired - not a great start. Of course I settled in, but that wasnt after spending about 15$ in a vending machine for food (food that I actually rationed and can promptly enjoy even days after initial purchase).

The day was mostly just me talking with friends on Discord, Twitch, Twitter, and working on my next Soundcloud release. The best part of it all was being invited to the Engineering Elite Movie Week party. Its basically as it sounds., the Engineers here at the University are more often than not aeriodite and sometimes see themselves as an elite student union (they also worship the dark Engineering god Schulich, brother of Cthulhu). Every week the different Engineering departments direct movies for broadcast (or for propaganda) and for grading. Needless to say the movies are typically riddled with memes, sexuality, the discrimination of other inferior University departments, and the constant inebriation of the student body.

Despite all that, the party was admittedly very much enjoyable as there was free alcohol (courtesy of the Department of Zoology as they literally have their own brand of beer) and Domino's pizza. To top that all off, I got to see my friend Keenan again (and his hair, which is very much similar to hyper Jesus). Even though the time was relatively short lived, it was nice to see a familiar face. I hope that within a few days Ill expand my reach beyond Keenan and my other friends and begin meeting more people.

After all, I have all the time in the world now to settle down.

Ive been so ignorant of whats been happening on DA, that I managed to somehow not notice I had 16.9K pageviews. I guess Ive become one of those artists who literally dont have to upload anything, and I still get tons of love, for doing nothing. It seems, too, like every passing day I get about 10 or so Llamas. And thats strange cause I havnt uploaded in over a year...
