  1. I think there is a strong relationship between immersion and realism. A world doesn't need to reflect reality entirely, but it certainly needs a similar authenticity. I've seen a lot of Second Life avatars that follow that line of thought, but I've also seen my share of people using the image of popular characters or just bizarre appearances.
  2. I'm here

    Hey there, TwistedCheshire! Welcome to the ArtByte community. If you feel up to it, please share your watercolor work in an artist listing post. I'd love to see it!
  3. Hello from a Virtual World Explorer!

    Hey, Strawberry! Welcome to the ArtByte community, it's great to have you here. I think there's a very promising future in ArtByte - Second Life cooperation. I can't wait to see more work from you in the future!
  4. Didn't Make The Cut

    The life of a freelance artist can be pretty tough - even getting people to take you seriously and agree to let you do paid work can be a huge hurdle. But it's not the companies and projects that never respond that really bring me down, but the ones that I almost get to be part of, only to find that I just barely wasn't good enough. I've had projects where they were interviewing several artists, and I was interviewed, but in the end, they went with a different artist. That kind of dismissal really stings - you get so close to finding something that'll help you pay the bills, only to find that you missed it by a hair. How do you guys deal with rejections from jobs and projects like that? Where you were so sure you could be a part of it and get some paid work, but then it turns out you were wrong?
  5. Stages of Human Life

    Hey, thank you! It makes me happy my vector art impresses you! I've found that working with vectors is a huge help for clients that need stuff printed, but it's a lot of work to get that same organic look my drawings have.
  6. Setas Acuarelas

    The image in your first post looks broken, which is a shame, because the project sounds interesting. The best way to share images is by just posting an external link.
  7. Chameleon Logo Design

    Ooh, I really like the chameleon logo. Well done! Red and green is a pretty unorthodox combination for designs (with the exception of Christmas cards).
  8. New Three-Dimensional Murals by Peeta

    I do really love it when artists use architecture and the environment as a canvas like that! I really identify with Manuel's way of thinking - about changing the way we view space, and thus, reality.
  9. Hello World!

    Hey, Rodrigo, welcome to the ArtByte forum! Your work looks amazing! Remember to make a post with your work in the appropriate artist listing subforum to make it official.
  10. Rakuen

    No, it's only on Steam and I don't think that's going to change; it's a very niche game, after all.
  11. Rakuen

    No kidding! I think Deus Ex is one of those games where you hardly "notice" the music, but when it's gone, the game loses all atmosphere. Rakuen, though, is a game where music is more on the forefront of the game and storytelling. Some of the puzzles even rely on sound or music. Yeah, no problem! Like I said, it's on sale on Steam, so you can get it at a low price now. Don't miss your chance.
  12. Giuseppe Muscio | Hyperrealist Painter

    Hyperrealism is always so amazing to me - how an artist can make a picture so perfect it looks like a photograph. Thanks for sharing, this is some really beautiful stuff!
  13. Rakuen

    I recently played an adventure/puzzle game called Rakuen and it really touched my heart. It's about a boy who has to stay at a hospital, but his mother comes to visit him and leads him to a magical world using a storybook. The creator is Laura Shigihara, who did music for Plants vs. Zombies and To the Moon. I particularly loved the music: The game is on sale on Steam right now, so I'd give it a look: https://store.steampowered.com/app/559210/Rakuen/ You won't be disappointed!
  14. A hello

    Hey, Isabelle! Welcome to the ArtByte community. Great to see a person with passion for filming - remember to make a post in the artist listing subforum so we can see some of your work.
  15. Portrait of a young woman

    Very beautiful work! Is this based on a real model, or drawn entirely from scratch?
