Level 36 : Artisan Artist

When we fulfill our potential as humans, we need no possessions. We need only movement, and we move like gods.


A pose I continue to enjoy is the one-footed skyward blooming used here. In its leap from Earth, "Flight" fulfills a wish that "Shadowdancer"may have had while rooted in a similar pose. I feel that the better I understand this pose, the better I will understand something in myself, and will better express that thing in other parts of my life, such as writing, music, and friendship.

amazing work, i love the form! i dont think most people realise that one block to many or to few can make a sculpt like this seem off. this one seems to be perfect!

Yes, I've been feeling the pressure to make one-block adjustments. As you advance, the flaws get smaller, yet seem bigger. I still see plenty in Flight. Thank you. <3

Perfect!? Huahuahuahua... Oh man. Perfect. Oh dear. *stares at all the flaws* But I'm flattered.
Great statue, I had assumed you were going to color it before posting/using, but it's still excellent!

I must know you...? And thanks. I decided that anything more than this would take away rather than add, at my current level.
I'm afraid we haven't met, a friend of mine on Pandora's was keen to show it off to me a while back ;p

Hm... I did spend a bit of time on the height of the jump. The dude's about 180 tall. And he floats about... I forget... 30-40 off the ground? Seems tame to me, lol.

There was a ballet dancer who commented, and now a high jumper. So glad to be connecting with people in the physical disciplines.

Good to have your perspective. He is not high jumping. He is just... blooming out of the old life. But if I ever build a high jumper, I will remember you.

Thank you. <3
Very nice. It impresses the hell out of me that you did this freehand. You have a great sense of the shape of the human body, and of how to create realistic and beautiful shapes in Minecraft.

Your style and subject matter remind me a lot of Ymgarl's. Considering your similarities, my guess is that someone has already introduced you guys to each other, but just in case that hasn't happened, here's an example of his work: Minecraft Timelapse: Gold
  • Chimalus

Ymgarl was one of the biggest early influences to my organics. "Gold" was a very inspiring build and cinematic to me, as were a few of his others. However, I haven't had the pleasure of meeting him yet. I tried once. The server was abandoned. :P 

Thank you for appreciating the shapes. I don't think my grasp of human anatomy is all that good yet. But comments like yours encourage me to keep going.
Right on! I'm glad that I may have been able to give you at least some additional amount of fuel for you continuing with your Minecraft artistic work. :)

Oh right, I see now that you listed Ymgarl listed as one of your inspirations on your Planet Minecraft profile.

And yeah, Circleight is incredible, isn't she? Her work totally blows me away. The two of you seem to have a similar writing style, so perhaps you're similar in other ways.

If you'd like to meet Ymgarl, I'd encourage you to just do it. I'm sure he would be flattered to know that he's been an inspiration to you, and I would imagine that such a meeting might help both of you to feel inspired and develop as artists. The two of you might even decide to collaborate on a project. You could message him through YouTube (where he's been active at least as recently as 5 days ago), through Facebook (where he's been active at least as recently a late May), and/or through Google+ (activity not public unless added as friend).

The same goes for Circleight. Since you've already been on Crysis and Mysidia, it seems like there's a good chance that you've already met her, but if you haven't, last I knew, she was very active on Planet Minecraft, so she should see any message you send her through this site.

I feel that the work that all three of you produce is at a comparable level, and that there can can be a lot of interesting dynamism when exceptional artists interact with each other, so I would encourage you to make that happen if you feel so inspired.

A conversational man. I like you.

Circ and I had our talks in the days of Crysis and Mysidia. 

Your case for contacting Ymgarl is compelling. 

Collab in Minecraft... if things align. But the time I spend in this game is small.
Thanks! You seem pretty cool too. :)

I hope that you and Ymgarl get the most possible out of interacting with each other if you do choose to contact him.

Yeah, I personally get a lot of satisfaction out of collaborating with others on projects, but I know that collaboration, especially on artistic projects, isn't for everyone.
One of the best organics ive ever seen , flawless technique !
