Amaranthine Story needs your help + points

:icontincek-marincek:




We're gonna be Creative directors | Concept artists for the game Amaranthine Story by David Daniels. These days you were able to see some of the concepts which I uploaded in my gallery (also below). Well...we and the whole team would love to make this game and the project a reality, so we would need your help in making this game possible. 

Game director David Daniels launched first INDIEGOGO campaign. At the moment we would need some funding, so that game development will move on and we'll be able to show you bigger progress. More about the game you can read here. Some concept arts and video about the game (Matthias' Story) you can check below. More on Indiegogo.

About the game & Synopsis

Amaranthine Story is the Debut game of Lion Dog Studios. From the mind of David Daniels, it was written over the course of 10 years encompassing elements of Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy, Horror, and Drama.  
An elite group of warriors from the Kingdom of Grand Eden are sent on a mission to recover an item that could result in the fall of their kingdom. They quickly discover this mission is a set-up

Matthias Gamble is the only survivor. Suffering from memory loss and plagued by the screams of his dying comrades, a broken Matthias quickly finds himself framed for the deaths of the Royal Family. With the hero prince being the only survivor, Matthias is branded a traitor to the Kingdom and is hunted down by those he swore to protect.

In order to survive, Matthias must challenge his morals, his faith, and his dreams in order to uncover the dark events of his past. Only then can he survive the present and save the future from the coming darkness of World War.

This is a genre-bending fantasy bringing together elements of action, adventure, comedy, romance, fantasy, and horror. Enter the world of Unelma where monsters roam the wild and magic is the sword protecting all life or killing it mercilessly.

A hero is born from the destiny they choose to write.

Dimly lit by the fading glow of stars, a silhouette stood on the brink of a roughly-hewn cliff. His bloodshot eyes were narrowed as cat-like slits and his fists hung like limp, broken branches at his sides. If he had the strength he would have constricted them in agony, but his strength was waning, dripping away as small liquid crystals from his sharp green eyes.
The moon shone high in the charcoal-dusted sky, obliterating the dark like a beacon of light, a ray of hope to those it looked upon with smiling face.
His lip tightened in anger as he thought the same, hapless notion once more. If the moon could destroy that darkness with just a mere glance of its beams, why couldn't it be rid of his?
He shook with bitter cold and angst, unable to express the billions of raging emotions pent up inside him. He wanted to scream, to cry out and pierce the glowing sphere with a knife so sharp that it would never dare to return.
But even if he wasn't alone, such a feat would be

Video 
And the video progress of my painting Black Swan (you can see it below) is finally uploaded (yesterday I uploaded it for like 3.5 hours...I thought that I'll went nuts :nuu:). But it's finally on our YouTube so you can check the video below or on this link :la:
Black Swan by tincek-marincek
This video is 10 times faster than actual speed and it's 1 hour and 46 minutes long. If you have patience to watch it from beginning till the end I'll worship and bow to you :worship: And it lasted few days till I uploaded this...I tried to make a song...eh..
Some parts I had to play even on my keyboard cuz I was to lazy to take my keyboard/electric piano which was in my neeeeeeext roooooom. Hahaha. Fail... anyway, at least it's not soundless video ;P Well...you'll see how many layers I use... and I use duplicate option a lot, haha :giggle: If you'll have any questions, feel free to ask... I don't bite :dummy:

And I have to apologize if some of you tried to check our official site these days, but we were moving our site to different hosting, so it didn't work for few days. But now it's fine :D

And TheSleepingGods wrote a short story based on my character Ari (on the pic above). You can read it here:
Ari, the Black SwanI ran through the trees with as much haste a wounded soul could muster. Tears streamed down my face as the hunters behind me yelled my location.
Why? Why was I to be hunted? Just seeing the faces of my loved ones when they were run through in my mind causes my wracking sobs to continue their onslaught. From where did these men hail? I didn’t recognize their facial markings. Certainly not from the south, there was not such an aggressive countenance below the valley. These men were foreign, and my family was dead.
For reasons unknown to me, I continued to run. But the burning in my lungs began to draw the last bit of strength in my limbs and when I knew my limit had come.
What happened if I stopped? I needed to desperately. No choice, the pain in my chest was too much. My legs slowed their run, and my mind went numb. With a grunt, I fell to my knees and took two of the largest breathes that I could before dropping forward onto my stomach.

Assassins 
Alright... I'm so interested how many people here are AC fans...haha. My sis is so obsessed with it, so are you one of fellow deviant who enjoys to play these series. :dummy: The last one is Black Flag...cuz my sis played it these days, I was inspired to paint this fan art below (so I hope I didn't let all AC fans down...enjoy the pic) ;P Man...I have even unfinished Connor and Edward Kenway...I have no idea when I'll finish these two. 

Anyway...which of the series you like the best (if you played more of them). We played AC3 like 10 times all over again...haha. :giggle: I'm really curious where next AC is gonna be. And for those who didn't play AC series... did you ever play one game for many times all over again...or are you obsessed with one (or more...no limitations here...haha) game character? :D 

And I have one poll for you ;P (Oh my...I didn't post these a loooong time :omg:) Let me know...what do you more prefer...Fan art VS Original art.

Miracle!!!
After 2 years my dA started to work again...:la: I can't believe it. I'm soooooo happy right now. After so long time trying to fix the problem and report it, I already stopped believing that this will be fixed. But 2 weeks ago I tried to update my old stuff again (to see if it started to work) and I thought it didn't work again...but I started to be suspicious cuz it got many views (usually views stopped cuz it got deleted). Then I checked my Photo account and I saw little (update) word under drawing. I was so happy, that I couldn't believe. So today I tried to update one drawing again and it worked again (I thought it was a glitch at first...haha).

And I also RECORDED whole progress from this piece so SOON will be available on our YouTube... I'll write a journal when. I hope tomorrow...or even today if I won't have problems (but it's a little late at me, so I believe I'll post it tomorrow). ^^; And this piece I drew in Manga Studio...not Photoshop. So this is my (second) piece in that program (first one I did't post on dA ;P). Anyway... I hope you like it :heart:

Photoshop tutorial- PS basics 3

Photoshop tutorials
I'm back with writing my journal tutorials for Photoshop. I didn't post any new journal tutorial in a while ^^; Now I also edited journal skin, so it'll be more appropriate for "Photoshop tips" ;P Anyway, my previous tutorial you can check here. I'll describe some Photoshop basics for everyone who try to learn to use Photoshop. So in this article you'll find tutorials: Making selections, Customizing brush, Bevel & Emboss, Stroke. In this tutorial I used my painting Came From Hell, just to show you few things. :la:

If you wish to see images in full resolution then simply click on the images below (they are big as my screen 1920 x 1080 px... OK I cropped bar below ;P). I used Photoshop CS6 here, so some things may be different in lower PS versions. But most of things may be the same in all PS versions. I'll make even more tutorials like this, so stay tuned. And if you like it, then you can :+fav: fav this article. Thank you and enjoy. I hope it's helpful :hug:

Making selections
Basics3-1 by tincek-marincek
When you want to paint character without background, and if you use many layers then it can be difficult to erase errors on each layer separately (which you painted over the lines). Well, then it can be easier if you select just the base color of the character. On the picture you can see my character on transparent background. When you start to draw, then paint base of the character (inside the lineart) with one solid color. It must be painted on one separated layer (not background layer). Later you'll use that layer for making selections.
Basics3 by tincek-marincek
Now we'll make selections. HOLD CTRL key on your keyboard and click on LAYER THUMBNAIL which you want to select. On the picture you'll see striped lines all over painted things which you drew on that specific layer.
Basics3-2 by tincek-marincek
It'll select "inside color" which you have on that layer. You'll be able to paint the character and color won't go over the lines or selection. To deselect selected area simply click CTRL+D on your keyboard.
Basics3-3 by tincek-marincek
If you wish to select area around the character, then click on top menu Select/ Inverse option. It'll inverse your selected area and you'll be able to paint around the character (though you can paint just on layer below the character). To deselect selected area simply click CTRL+D on your keyboard.

Customizing brush
Basics5 by tincek-marincek
I'll describe you few things how to customize your brushes (more in next tutorial). Image above will describe how to customize Brush Tip Shape (to get this menu go to Window/Brush). There you can change it's Angle and Roundness (image 2). Like that will brush be more flat and when you'll draw it'll be under one angle more thin and under different angle more thick. You can also change Spacing (image 3). If you set spacing on 0% then brush will have smooth transitions. Bigger spacing you'll select then bigger spaces will be with each brush repetition.
Basics6 by tincek-marincek
Now we'll check Shape Dynamics menu (image 1). If you change Size Jitter then size of each brush repetition will variate (it won't get "smoothly" smaller with lower brush pressure). Minimum Diameter will select smaller brush size. If you have it on 0% then it'll get completely small with lowest brush pressure. If you set it on 100% then brush pressure won't affect its size (its size will be always on 100%)...image 2. (image 3) Angle Jitter will change angle of each brush repetition. If you set it on 0% then angle will be the same on all brush repetitions. If you set it on 100%, then each brush repetition will be rotated under different angle. The last setting in this menu will be Roundness Jitter (it changes roundness of each brush repetition) and Minimum Roundness. If you set it on 100% then it'll be biggest difference between repetition's roundness size (from thinnest to widest).

Bevel & Emboss
Basics9 by tincek-marincek
Next thing is adding Bevel & Emboss. I mostly use this effect for metallic things and accessories at my characters. On image above I showed how to apply the effect on text. Choose Type tool (T on keyboard) and write what you want. For adding effect click on FX button at the bottom right...select Bevel & Emboss option. There you can change Technique, Depth, Direction, Size and Soften. In my middle text I chosen Chisel Hard technique...this will give metal look. I also changed other settings like Size and Depth. Here you can experiment a lot, so you'll see what will happen when you change few settings. At the bottom text I changed technique to Smooth (it comes by default when you click Bevel & Emboss tool). You can see that edges look much softer. There you can also change Angle of light and color of the light (and many other settings).

Stroke
Basics10-3 by tincek-marincek
Next FX mode. Now I'll describe how to use Stroke Blending mode. If you want to add stroke around your text or around your painting/character... then simply click on FX button at the bottom right corner. Select Stroke option. There you can set Stroke Size, Position, Blend Mode, Opacity and Color. At the text above I changed Position from Outside to Inside (so stroke will go inside the text). If you want to have transparent text, without the color inside (outline), then simply set Layer's Fill to 0% (on layer where you added stroke effect).

That's everything for now :dummy:... I hope you learned something new and if you liked this tutorial, then you can also :+fav: fav this article. Thank you :heart: More tutorials by us you can see under THIS folder (even my older journal tutorials you can now find under this folder) :la: If you have any questions, then feel free to comment under this article. We'll be glad to help you :heart:
