Paper Boats by chinara Paper Boats by chinara
I will always find you, like it's written in the stars.

Transistor is one of the most beautiful games I have ever played. The art direction, storytelling and soundtrack are truly stunning, and the gameplay itself is amazingly fluid. Naturally, I wanted to try my hand at the beautiful style.

Of course I'd remember you, Rosie! :heart: You were so amazing at ArtSoc, and your life drawings are really something else. I'm quite  envious of those skills of yours!

Where did you do your fine art course at? was it local to Birmingham?
I am heading off to my master in September at the KU Leuven in Belgium. :) I am really looking forward to it, and hope it will be a blast!

Ahhh, thanks so much again! I try hard to become more and more original in my artwork to be more diversified, so I'm glad to hear it's paying off!

Aw thank you! That means so much, especially when you are so skilled yourself!! :D The masters sounds amazing, have a really great time! I have a friend who lives in Belgium. If I ever go visit her maybe we could meet up! :D I've moved back with my parents now in London, so I did the course in an independent place near London Bridge called The Art Academy. I'd never heard of it before but it was a brilliant place :) :) What is your masters in? xxx

Awww shucks, thank you! 'u' I think that every artist has their personal specialty, and it's best if everyone learns together!

You should definitely come to my place if you are in the country! I am in Leuven, and I'll be studying a MAES in Transnational and External Relations for the EU, focal point EU-Asia. I am very much looking forward to it, since it will be an exciting opportunity!
The art Academy sounds amazing and fancy. Gosh, if I had known you are in London! I was in London for an extended weekend in November, at the Tower Bridge. it would have been brilliant to see you again!

Hey there, I just want to say that I enjoy how you did the all the details for this one. I like how red orb in the sword contrasts aginst the sword's teal blade. also like how the composition of this whole work was done. A lot of thought went into making this one, and I honestly how it was done.

What a beautiful work. The highlights on the red lenses look so realistic.
The effects and details like the ones in the upper background are such a nice add. :)

I can believe that, it has so many details, lights, highlights and such. But it's lovely how there are always more details that I didn't see before. :)

Transistor is such a gem in indie gaming! Personally I think it can rival the big titles. Here's the trailer: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTik6s…

Whoa, well it definitely looks the part! XD Hot dizzity darn...looks and sounds awesome. This looks right up my alley. :D

And not a problem at all! :) I managed to find it and was instantly struck by the fantastic color work. It's just such a beautiful piece, you did an amazing job in capturing the art direction (if I use that term correctly) of the game! :D

It is really beautiful! Personally, I find it's a masterpiece of story-telling. :) Nothing's more intriguing than a story told with less words, and more insinuation.

Thank you so much for the kind words!!! Hehe, I think you can term in this context. :) I tried my best to emulate it without it being a direct carbon copy. I'm glad you like my painting!

I'm the same way, I love when I'm told a story and I'm not told everything. It engages you more into the story, leaves things to the imagination, but not in a way that degrades from the quality of the story. That's the greatest mark of a good story and storyteller, to me haha. XD 
Haha, it's no trouble! And that's good haha, I hate when I don't use words correctly when describing something, which is unfortunately something I do a lot. x( But in any case, I definitely think that emulation came through and was successful! :)
