The town of Fenghuang is located in the Hunan province in China along the banks of the Tuo Jiang River. The town is exceptionally well-preserved and relatively untouched by modern urbanization.
The legacy of the Ming And Qing dynasties are preserved within the town, spanning 300 years of ancient heritage. In the ancient town zone, preservation of over 200 residential buildings, 30 streets, and hundreds of other ancient features and landmarks of the town has continued for hundreds of years.
Because of its unique geographical location, Fenghuang never suffered from the destruction of any natural disaster or suffered invasion from any wars. Even during the war of resistance against Japanese invasion, the isolated town of Fenghuang did not suffer occupation. In 1949, Fenghuang was peacefully liberated.
In the following 50 years, Fenghuang was spared any large-scale construction that occurred in nearby districts. As the people of Fenghuang cherish their valuable heritage, the local government has conducted strict control over all construction, continuing the preservation and the authenticity of the ancient town.
I haven’t made many life posts recently, but I’ve been working onCall of Duty’sExtinction story (the alien stuff towards the end of this video). You can see one of the crafting items I helped with. Before we got the real actors, I did scratch lines for Dr. Cross - it was pretty fun!
Devastationcomes out in April! :) I think it’s worth getting for the Kraken, but I may have just developed an untold affection for the beast by working on it.
I got some Actiblizzard swag I don’t need, though (games for systems i don’t own and clothes I don’t fit). Might do a giveaway on here if people show interest. Does anyone who follows me even play CoD (or Diablo? Or Starcraft?)?
I got a commission from heartbrokengirlsketches of my twocharacters. I’m a real big ice skating dork, and they are, too. I just love the long lines and the stellar inkwork on this image! I love the way the colors blend, too. Wow, they’re so cute! :D Thank you so much!
My new job hasn’t left much time for drawing or writing (or anything). This is pretty much everything I’ve done since October. What you saw during those months was all a queue, but it’s run out now. Sorry.
It’s at the point I’ve considered just giving up drawing. Can’t say the same about commissions, though. I love buying them *o*
Latest one! I bought a painting from Harteus who just has such amazing color sense. I really like how she brings out Rivek's eyes and bounces that blue light off the shadowed areas. Just such perfect lighting!
Coding has been really soul-sucking lately, so I’ve been buying sketches from wonderful Tumblr artists to make up for it.
I met Jovaline as part of the Ladies of Literature zine. She is such a sweetheart and has a great sense for books. I got one of her commissions for Typhoon Haiyan aid. I really love how she pays attention to story and character interaction. She has a wonderful quality in her shapes and flow! Such a romantic drawing! <3
More retail therapy! :D I love buying art of my characters, ehe.
Veitstanz was doing these awesome inked commissions to raise money for school supplies, so I got one of Rivek. I just love her line quality and her way with brush ink. The quality of the feather is so beautiful, and I love his bent nose and the smirk on his face. So perfect! Thank you! <3
