Genius Loci calendar 2015

Journal Entry: Sat Dec 6, 2014, 8:00 AM



Prints on Inprnt

I openend an account on Inprnt. Not all of my works will be made available, but some that I think might be nice to put on the wall; feel free to suggest other works to me to make available as prints, though.




Genius Loci calendar 2015

The new Genius Loci calendar for 2015, featuring new artwork, and as so many people liked the world quotes so much, every month has a denizen of my world explaining, asking, or reciting.

Meanwhile, Starmaker's Gaze continues. When I started my worldbuilding blog, I labeled unpublished articles by importance, and what do you know, I'm done with the crucial parts of my world. With the presssure of that released, I'm feeling free to publsih more often, about things that go into more detail, like celebrities, professions, animals, and so forth.

The tiny people

I'd like to share an observation. Now please don't understand this as a rant, it's actually amusing.
Have you noticed that in a whole lot of environment and landscape art, when the artists put in tiny people for scale, those people stand in the strangest spots? I have found them on single floating rocks; on traffic signs perched above the entire city; on rock spires with 90° sides; on the one stone in the ocean; or they took their entire travelling party to the most un-down-gettable-ledge they could find.
Now, granted, this has a long tradition, ever since Obi-Wan and Luke stopped to see Mos Eisley from afar. Still - what are the tiny people thinking? How did they get there? And how the heck do they plan to get down/up/out/over there? Can they all fly? Is there a secret competition to leave "X has been here" in those spots? And why can't I fly?

2015 ID by Ranarh
2015 ID
I long needed a new ID picture of my character Ranarh for the ID section. It took some time to decide on the pose and whether or not a fremai should be in the piece; as always, her yellow skin was a challenge, but at least I smuggled the lightsaber in.
So, here she is - probably watching the engineer or pilot working, or just generally hanging out when there's nobody to duel with.

Making of The Tale Nahil and Remor by Ranarh
Making of The Tale Nahil and Remor
So, after some time a longer tutorial again. I find it always difficult to explain the intricate ways of making a piece of art work. I think the most important part I can say is: Don't start before you're convinced, and love your work. I can firmly state that whenever I loved my paintings myself, others did too, but never the other way around.

Read a little more accumulated artistic wisdom in my art blog ranarh.blogspot.com.

Your gallery is lovely! I wish I had your skill!
 

I notice you’re from Germany. Ton of history there! I visited the Rhine Valley

and Black Forest years ago and thought it was gorgeous!

 

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own

country, much less anyone else's.  :(

 

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

 

Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from

another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

 

This update is about your home!

GOD bless
