Nascence universe musings by Techta
Nascence universe musings
It started in one way but ended with some kind of assassin chick who just got out of space prison and is kind of disoriented and crazy, and this alien dude takes her in to be some kind of attack dog mercenary for a gang but ends up actually caring a little and maybe trying to help her not be crazy. I dunno. I got frustrated and never finished it. Bleh.

I think it just inadvertently ended up Commander Shepard and one of my original alien species.

Even then, this species is still in concept phase, so it'll likely change a lot.
Commission - DnD Character Silverspear by Techta
Commission - DnD Character Silverspear
I had an absolute blast doing a commission for a friend of mine who wanted a portrait of the DnD character she is currently playing. You can follow their adventures on Twitch TV. I will get the link up as soon as I find it.

Whoa, I actually sat down and finished a whole comic strip sketch in one sitting and not in, like, a million hours. My challenge was to force myself to actually draw poses and surroundings rather than floating-bodies-in-space and disembodied torsos. Was having decent luck and making great time, so I kept going.

What's really weird is that I think, after SEVEN years, this is my first narrative artwork of Nascence (scifi original universe). Even stranger, it's some of the newer content in one of the later story arcs and has nothing to do with my main character, Anak.

Human character based off of my old Filipino roommate and alien species is based off of sea slugs. I'll...finish that reference eventually.

I've been really active in the last couple days -- trust me, I have no idea why I suddenly had the urge to do art again. It's probably been almost a year since the last time I cranked out several pieces in a row. Whatever, I'll ride this wave. It's fun to draw again.

It hasn't really hit me yet that I'm a month from graduating college. My parents are way more excited than me. I think it'll be more exciting when I am not stressed out about my classes--I get a week of nothing between my last final and commencement. Anyway, yay! Achievement 99% unlocked!

Lastly, I just put a lot of deviations in storage because I finally reached the point where they are SO OLD I didn't want them around anymore. I actually like to compare how much my art has changed over the years, but I think the gulf between early high school and 5th year senior just got too great that I was reaching levels of embarrassment. I left up some really old ones that might still have sentimental or comparative value.

Anyway, hopefully this weird art jag will continue, because it's fun and I really want to open commissions again once I graduate and have time to do them.

Thank you! Ugh I have so many, and this crazy long story I haven't written yet. I have most of my aliens designs worked out, but I'm always tweaking. That's actually a good point though... I need to get all my concept art uploaded and pinned down.

Loving your alien characters design! :O
(saw a commission you ordered; Techta's Anak by LassieCrumby  )

Thank you! Her species is called "toridian." They are the kind of "main species" of the fictional sci-fi universe I never finish writing for. XD She made her look so sweet :) Which is funny because the toridians are pretty cold and imperialistic. They are both the antagonists and protagonists depending on which story they are in, because it takes place from a different species' perspective. I don't post much, but if you're interested, stay tuned! :)

Very cool! You should finish writing it when you get the chance :O
-Perspective truly can change whether a group is good or bad, it'd be very interesting to read a story that plays around with that.

I'm a fulltime freelance artist, so if you ever want another commission of her or her species, hit me up-I love working on unique alien characters like the Toridian!
