I just wanted to take a few minutes and let you all know what’s been going on with me lately.  First off I’m back in school working on becoming an EMT.  It’s not set in stone yet but I think I will just go the full route and become a paramedic.  I’m still working on that Plan-B though.  That is, I plan on eventually moving on to something else.  Nursing is one possibility on the table. 

As for the EMT class work, it’s surprisingly engrossing.  I keep finding myself drifting off reading up on things not covered in class.  There is also a lot of labs, quizzes, tests, and exams to study for.  Far more than what I had for my medical training in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman.

Anyway I hope everyone else is doing well.  See you around!  :ahoy:

Samara by Lootra
Samara
It took a lot of work but I finally finished it!  :iconflowerdanceplz:  

I had a hard time finding reference photos for this piece.  So I ended up making some of my own.  The biggest problem was trying to find a way to describe Samara visually.  Specifically, it's the "essence" part of her character I was having trouble with.  I have a copy of the Mass Effect Art book and looked up Samara to see what those artists had in mind when making the concept art.  It's funny that the game developers had a lot of trouble creating her character too.  It's nice to know I wasn't alone on this.  ^^  It seems the original idea behind her character was a sort of mystic-warrior type.  With that in mind, I spent some time trying to figure out how to show those qualities.  

I played with a few poses but ultimately settled on this one.  I didn't want anything too crazy just something simple.  Painting the biotic "magic" stuff was tricky too because I wasn't really sure on how to show that.  I ended up going with a Dragon Ball Z look for that aspect.  :laughing:  I hope it looks good to you guys because I think it looks pretty bad ass!  ^__^

Medium: oil
Dedicated to my friend :iconcarolineblack:  Sorry for taking so long :iconhappywaveplz: I hope you like it nonetheless!  :ahoy:

W.I.P.  Samara by Lootra
W.I.P. Samara
Working on this for my friend :iconcarolineblack:   Today I spent time working on the base colors.  
I spent a while taking reference screenshots from the games because I couldn't find anything that was really invoking the essence of Samara.  So I settled on trying to show her biotic powers because that's such a major part of her mystic warrior background.  It doesn't look like much now but I think this one's going to turn out to be fantastic once it's done.  ^_^
