Arkaios's Profile Picture

Artist | Student | Digital Art
United States
My page is currently under construction, bear with me!

Hello! My name is Jordan, and I am currently a sophomore at the Herron School of Art and Design, a school of Indiana University located in Indianapolis. I am pursuing a degree in illustration with a minor or double major in Biology. I hope to one day work as a Medical Illustrator or become a part of the video game industry.

:bulletorange:What program do you use?
Normally, I use Adobe Photoshop Elements 8 for my work. Every now and again I'll try out a different program such as Corel Painter or something, but I stick with Elements most of the time.

:bulletyellow:Do you use a tablet? If so, what kind?
Yes I do. I've been through a few tablets throughout my digital art career, but the one that I own currently is a Wacom Intuos4.

:bulletorange:Will you check out my contest?
Sure, I'll take a gander at the contest and the prizes and whatnot, but I rarely participate in them. I also don't appreciate the self-promotion on my dA page, so don't be surprised if your comment ends up hidden. :c

:bulletyellow: Can I reference / trace your work if I give credit?
No. :[ The reason I say this is because although I believe people can learn from other artists, I don't think you should trace others' work to improve your own. Sketching from reference photographs can teach you a lot more than tracing my work can.

Have a question that you don't see here? Feel free to drop me a note. I don't bite! I promise!

Ark's Journal

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 9, 2013, 11:09 PM
  • Listening to: Childish Gambino
  • Watching: Flashpoint
Hey guys, got a few updates for you!

First, I realized that the Tumblr I featured on my page isn't even the one that I'm active on |D; so if you're interested, you can find me here: I'm more active there than I am on dA, since I really only use dA for finished pieces etc. So if you want to see mindless doodles or WIPs that place is where you want to be!

Also, I've been struck by inspiration and motivation recently. Maybe it's because I realized that all of the time I was spending goofing off or playing tons of video games would be a lot better spent improving my art since it's what I want to do for a living in the future. Hopefully this wave of motivation will stay with me for some time because I'm trying to come up with new characters and hopefully end up fleshing out a solid story for Ark and all of that good stuff. I will also be working on revamping the front of my dA page since it's lost its pazazz. I might even think about commissioning a journal layout since I'm so lame with CSS and coding to make something cool |D

On a more negative note, I have been pretty sick recently so me staying at home is only giving me more time to do better with my artwork and get more stuff done. I have been having some severe stomach issues and unfortunately even with blood tests my doctor can't figure out what's going on. For the past two months I've been in a lot of pain so I'm hoping that this ends as soon as possible and that I have some sort of solution to this problem! So far my mother has raided our cabinets and changed all of our foods to gluten-free on the chance that I had a sudden intolerance for it. I'm eating a lot healthier now and taking a lot of vitamins in hopes that it might help me out a little. I've been feeling a little better recently, so hopefully it's only up from here.

That's really all that's new on my block, how have you guys been?
