Nice to meet you and thank you for sharing and taking the time to look at my critique! I hope that it is helpful for you. The colors an...



Inochi by YumeSprite
My sister asked me to design a tattoo for her a couple years ago that symbolized her beliefs in life. What was important in life? What do you need to have, to do to make it good? She gave me a list and said she wanted it to be in kanji somehow. This is how I solved that problem.

Now, 3 years later, my sister was diagnosed with thyroid cancer while she was pregnant with her second child. She had surgery to remove her thyroid in mid September, and both she and her baby are doing very well! I find that this tattoo she has is more meaningful than ever, and decided to finally post it to da.

[The kanji simply means life, pronounced "inochi" in Japanese. I don't know the Chinese pronunciation, sorry.]
Yes, I do have a twitter! Let's fly together. :) @ andrea_nagai
Ashes 5 by YumeSprite I'm thinking to re-do this old colored pencil piece digitally. ;) You can find it (and lots of old, old goodies and WIPs) in my scraps folder in my gallery!
Time to expand; looking into online art courses to learn things I didn't at uni.
Hello visitors!

As the title suggests, Naughty Dog is holding a contest with We Love Fine. It's a fan art contest that ties together their top-3 games over the past 30 years: Jak and Daxter franchise, Uncharted franchise, and The Last of Us.

There are many winners, all receiving a copy of a Naughty Dog art book (of varying editions), every game in the aforementioned list, and the winning art work gets a place in their Gallery Nucleus Art show on September 27.

HOWEVER, the grand prize winner also receives a trip to LA to visit the gallery, have lunch with the Naughty Dog crew, and tour their company! While they can't fly me out (I'm international, so I'll have to pay my own way --- which coincidentally is no problem this time! I'll be in LA then!), all I want is that grand prize of visiting them.

SO! What do I need of you, you ask? I need your support! I need your vote! I need the vote of anyone you know! If you think my design accurately represents 30 years of Naughty Dog games, and would look snazzy on a T-shirt, and if you have a spare 20 seconds, would you be so kind as to follow the link below and vote for my design?

Go here:…

The only way to win the grand prize is to be voted most popular by the public. Naughty Dog founders and co-presidents are the "guest judges", but the public decides who gets to go meet these judges! Funny, huh? I could sure use you guys!

Thank you so much for your support!

Here is my design:

You may make a request if you'd like. :) I'm a little busy working on some new deadlines, but I'm sure I could draw something you'd like in my spare time. If you send me a note, we can probably work something out.

Oh, I'd love to - and totally felt like it when I was done - but if I did I'd rather try do do it in a more unique style. I also have other projects I'm working on, so basically the answer is no. :/ I did this one specifically as an exchange with my younger sister. never know. :)
