7th Dragon III Code: VFD

Today, I want to be an artist. Ha! I’m an artist every day. I see things. If your new to my blog, please check out striving to become a professional artist so that I can give you a proper introduction. A few weeks ago a coworker approached me and told me 7th Dragon III Code: VFD game he had purchased. It came with an artbook. He knew I was into digital art and recommended I draw a waterfall scene from the game. Specifically, he wanted the Cladeon Environment. Immediately, I signed up and started painting. I used all my knowledge from my earlier experience with the Nightmare to produce a free magical land with waterfalls. While I didn’t have art direction from Dronstad, I focused on making sure my land looks as realistic as possible. Creating shadows on the outer parts of the drawing, reminding myself where the light is flowing from and slightly stressing myself that I don’t know much about composition. The artwork started on June 11 and ended July 14.

How I pushed through my struggle?

Honestly, I haven’t played 7th Dragon III Code: VFD *, but I had watched him play it. It reminds me of Final Fantasy 7 because of the odd in shape character graphics. While rendering my art, I started to fear that my brush strokes are going on autopilot for the past few weeks now. When that happens to me, I get bored, and It’s usually a signal that I need to move on to another project. Before I got to this point, I went through a few challenges, while developing my skills. My experience and confidence came to me from my previous drawing for Dronstad with the Nightmare painting. While drawing, I got comfortable with Jason’s texture brushes. However, now I feel like I’m relying too heavily on them. The brushes create unplanned happy accidents as I render my art. I want to go out on a limb and say I’m a fake artist! 😭 Then I remind myself that I’m the one moving and make the brush strokes. The ideas are coming from my brain, and it’s my struggle. So I digress. I’m bored now, and I want to take on a new challenge. I want to be able to plan out my drawings and spend less time rendering. Again, I said it before in the Nightmare, no studio is going to hire somebody who takes weeks to finish a single piece of art. Unless you’re a well-known artist with a trustworthy reputation, then this might not apply.

Mom saw the 7th Dragon III Code waterfall landscape.

She started saying the following words;

Удивительная сила живой воды. Кто смотрит на это чудо природы и слышит шум воды водопада сквозь туман… представь что ты стоишь рядом туман рассеется а ты вновь обретёшь здоровье и силу жить. Благословен Господь создающий для нас все необходимое. Mom


The amazing power of living water. Who looks at this miracle of nature and hears the noise of the water of the waterfall through the fog … imagine that you are standing next to the fog will dissipate and you will regain health and strength to live. Blessed be the Lord who creates for us all that is necessary. Mom
