Yo! My name is Lex and I make the occasional sim date. Note the word "occasional". I mostly release games around summer time because I hibernate in the winter. Like a bear. I also work on other games too! So stick around and I hope you enjoy the art I upload. Take care!

You can call me Lex, Lexy, or ND. I don't mind either way.

I do have an adoptable account: :iconrecipeagain: Please check it out if you are interested :nod:

     I went to national portfolio day yesterday in D.C. and the whole experience was a huge eye opener for me. I realized that while my art was improving I was  
staying stagnant. For a long time I held the belief that if I kept experimenting with new mediums all of my art would get better, but honestly I'm stuck in this 'experimental' phase. Don't get me wrong, experimentation is great. I just feel that I'm getting no where right now. I'm just bumpin along with no true direction. I say I want to study concept art and illustration, yet I focus on anything but illustration. I say I want to create an animation, yet I go off and do something completely different. I think its time I buckle down and really focus on what my art is about.
     I'm starting to take art more seriously and as a junior in highschool I feel pressured to get my act together for college. Meaning I don't have time for personal projects (AuMi, ProM, Carrot Stew,ect.) right now. Jeez, you probably don't even know what Carrot Stew is. All my personal projects are on leave, a.k.a won't be worked on unless I manage to gain spare time which will most likely not happen. 
     Of course not all of my personal projects will be stowed away. I'm starting a new project called Painting per Week (CPW for short)! The goal of this project is to help me improve and loosen up since I struggle with color, light, and use of references. Somehow I was deeply inspired by AquaSixio and these two tutorials he made: Tutorial 17 A turtle walkthrough + Tutorial 14 Photoref to make the difference
I keep flipping through all his tutroials and seriously I feel motivated to do something. I say I want to follow in his steps and for once I actually might!

     My project, CPW, is about doing a digital painting per week with an intentional focus on lighting, color, and figure. Each painting should tell a story by using this method. A color turtle and reference must be used. I plan to continue this project for 15 weeks (for a grand total of 15 paintings) starting today. Each sunday I will upload a new painting and post it below. Feel free to join the project if you want to! CPW = Challenge Painting per Week, N/f = not finished, Ref. = reference used. 

CPW: Week 1- n/f

Ref. - Telling Secrets by PersephoneStock
Idea- The Passion of Elephants by NotedDreams
Turtle- n/f
