Voltaire as a canine
I promise Voltaire isn't my only subject :D

I originally sketched this yeeeeears ago on notebook paper and have done the colored pencil piece since then but I like the look of this one better.  I decided to scan it into the computer and try turning it into a digital piece.  I first did it in Photoshop but I got Clip Studio Paint Ex a couple months ago when it was on sale so I thought I'd redo it there, especially after I had been watching some Youtube tutorial videos.  I think it turned out a lot better than the one I did in Photoshop because of those tutorials.

Not sure what I'm going to work on next, probably more digital but I'm eventually going to get my colored pencils out again and do something with that as well.
Trying to get back into doing artwork, been in a rut for awhile.
Voltaire Bianchi
This is not the real Voltaire (as in Aurelio Voltaire, the musician), though yes he does look like him :) This is a character I created years ago for use in online roleplay in journal communities (LiveJournal, Insanejournal, and the now extinct GreatestJournal).  Aurelio Voltaire is most definitely the inspiration for this character and they share similarities but also have many differences.  This character has been in development for about 10 years or so and will be in a novel when I decide to quit procrastinating and get to work on it :D

If you decide to share this in places, please give a link back to the page and credit me :)

Work was created in Clip Studio Paint Pro, the background was provided by the software, I didn't create it.  I am pretty new to digital painting so I know there are things I need to work on, like shading for instance.  This is semi-anime style.  

Aurelio Voltaire belongs to himself, Voltaire Bianchi belongs to me :)

EDIT: I keep finding things I need to add or fix *sigh*
I'm sure this will go unnoticed since I've been MIA for quite some time, but I'm going to try and come back and do some more artwork.  My free time has mainly been eaten up by work and WoW but I was laid off in January and started schooling online with Full Sail University, going to work on a Bachelor's degree in Web Design & Development.  I'm not entirely convinced this is the direction I should go so I suppose I should see if I will still have time to change my major if I feel the need to.  I think I can since the first 4 months is for general stuff that encompasses almost all degrees available at Full Sail, so we will see.  So basically now I'm doing school and WoW but I need to find time to do artwork too because it's really wearing me down that I haven't done much of anything at all.

I bought a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet from a friend of mine so I'm excited to start using that sucker.  I've been using The Gimp for my old digital stuff (that I think I took down) but I'm doing a trial for Sketchbook Pro so I think I'll be using that one as well.  I can't afford Photoshop, though that will be coming with a laptop we get after four months into enrollment at Full Sail, a Macbook Pro, so that will be interesting.  My experience has been with Microsoft thus far so I'm going to have to basically relearn to use a computer :\  I'm excited about getting a new laptop though since I got rid of mine over a year ago.  I hadn't used it for over a year so sold it, then regretted it because I wanted to use it all of a sudden (go figure).

That is all for now.  I'm not sure when this will get to be more active, I'm also hoping I can get my name changed too.  If not, I guess I'll have to make a new account.  Won't that be fun...
