Happy 2016! by WarrenLouw
Happy 2016!

Happy New Year everyone!! I just want to thank you all for your support in 2015 :D It was a great year, and only the beginning (once again) of far greater things to come!

Starting up my Patreon account was a big step for me to take, so thanks to all my patrons who have supported me! Seriously excited about creating and sharing future content releases with you :)

So, its another year, and we wonder what it might hold. We hope for what we want it to hold and hope for what it wont... but I'll just say on that note that its so damn easy to get lost in those future desires or worries to then only become a slave to the future (time). This keeps yourself out of the present moment where there is no time and things are actually more fine and more awesome than we are aware of. We think we need things like owning cool shit, gaining achievements, having new experiences, etc. to feel the moment, because we don't feel like its worth embracing otherwise. We have trained ourselves so intensely out of the present moment that we no longer even know how to embrace it unless our specific personal conditions are met. Learn to feel every moment regardless, even the ones that we spent our lives running from. Just feel it. Embrace your feelings and not the thoughts that try to corrupt and dominate the feeling for its own agenda. Just feel. Its the only way to truly start grasping the moment, because what it holds goes far beyond thought. Your thoughts will only get in the way.

This probably wont make a whole lot of sense coz theres far more to it, but this is part of what I've learn't in 2015 and its starting to release me from many of my personal struggles. This path ain't easy, especially when there are so many distractions, but this is the path that for me personally, feels right :) On that note, it doesn't even matter, just follow your own path and what feels right to you because you are already well on your own way on your own unique path and no one can tell you what that should be, not even me, so I've just defeated myself at everything I've just written XD Just be you. Not what others want you to be or what you think others will be more accepting of!

Haha, anyway, the artwork attached here isn't really related to this New Years post, but I'm glad to say that 2016 is going to be about me testing out other art software. This was a test I did on a program that was given to me for free by the developers, and I really think that leaving my Photoshop comfort zone is really going to broaden my horizons a lot. I will announce the actual software soon with future uploads once they've sorted out a few minor issues with it :)

Much love and awesomeness to all!

Warren

Copic Scarlett and Baroness

Jace Highborn by Warren Louw by WarrenLouw
Jace Highborn by Warren Louw
This is Jace Highborn from Bandai Namco's Outcast Odyssey - outcastodyssey.com. This is the 4th and final evolve of the character I designed. Working through 4 different versions of the artwork took a lot of time and effort. Certain things were very challenging and a bit of a struggle, while other parts were a lot of fun! In the end Im very happy with how she came out and is now one of my personal favorites :)

• Painted in Photoshop CS6 with a Wacom Intros 3.
