The Desperate Lamentations

Gonna reupload the Creators Chat episode once I figure out all of the weirdness happening with the audio.

Learning new software is hard.

October 12, 2018 at 9:48 am

The latest (and rather overdue) episode of Creators Chat is now up! We chat about personal projects and how great they are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALG1oDJ1bag

Still doing mailed-in card signatures, y’all. https://noahbradley.com/products/mailed-in-card-signatures

Remembering Home

One of my year-end paintings. Feel like I should do one for this year, though I don’t know if I’m capable of doing something so intensely happy as this year deserves.

October 8, 2018 at 9:55 am

The more I read, the more ignorant I realize I am.

Maybe in 20 years or so I’ll start to feel like I know a few things. Though I doubt that.

October 8, 2018 at 8:41 am

Good news, everyone!

I’m gonna be at GP New Jersey in a few weeks. Come by and get signatures or prints or mats or just hang out. See y’all soon. πŸ™‚

Made a set of wallpapers of the 48 Laws of Power, in case anyone’s interested. I set ’em as a slideshow on my desktop.

I have reached the strange epoch of my life wherein I am genuinely happy about a new set of sheets.

October 5, 2018 at 9:10 am

Pro tip: make your own glass palettes.

1. Glass from Lowe’s/Home Depot

2. Back with foam board.

3. Put gray paper between for better value/color picking.

4. Duct tape the shit out of it.

October 4, 2018 at 8:35 am

One of the first imaginative environments I ever painted. Oh how things change. πŸ™‚

Sketched a more “normal” fantasy landscape yesterday. Process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_kywAEK1VQ

I think realistic expectations for creators are essential for happiness & sustainability.
So, realistically for me:

Good work day – 3 hours
Fantastic/exhausting work day – 6 hours

September 25, 2018 at 5:47 am

Trippy landscape, process here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GtL_CzS30Jw

Listening to a book about food while fasting is a bad decision.

September 14, 2018 at 10:59 am

At the end of the year I’ll pick out a few of my favorite reads and share those. Spoiler: the trilogy biography of Theodore Roosevelt will likely be among them.

September 14, 2018 at 10:56 am

I am also a miserably slow reader. So audiobooks at 1.6x~ speed have been a boon for productivity and enjoyment.

September 14, 2018 at 10:37 am

One of my major goals for 2018 that has improved my life has been reading more. Already passed the 50 book mark for this year. It’s been amazing. Can’t recommend it enough.

Another of yesterday’s sketches. Felt so good to just play again.

September 12, 2018 at 5:52 pm

Been working super hard on some Magic stuff for a long time now, but took a little time this evening to sketch some stuff just for me. <3

September 12, 2018 at 11:11 am

I didn’t get to do much work on Ravnica this time around… so enjoy this flashback to my most popular card from the last time we were on Ravnica.

Don’t trust people whose brushes never stain or fray from use. They clearly possess some dark magics.

September 11, 2018 at 12:17 pm

For sale: Cintiq Companion 2, i5 128gb. Unused in box. Shoot me a message at noah@noahbradley.com

Doing a critique of Art Camp student’s climate/weather sketches tomorrow. Always a fun thing to study.

September 10, 2018 at 8:10 am

A little something I started last year that I still need to get around to finishing.

September 9, 2018 at 10:22 am

Kinda my first professional gig as an artist: painting interminably for Legend of the Five Rings.

BTW the new game is quite good.

September 9, 2018 at 7:31 am

As Darkness Rises

My first gig for D&D, almost 8 years ago now.

I have to delay my book until at least next springβ€”good work opportunities came up and I just couldn’t say no, leaving passion projects like my book relegated to the back burner. πŸ™

September 6, 2018 at 3:31 pm

Rachel just baked fresh bread and I am reminded, once again, why it was such a good decision to marry her.

September 6, 2018 at 7:13 am

It’s a strange transition to see a painting go from something worthless, roughly treated, sanded, scrubbed, etc. to something delicately treated and valuable when it’s done.

Quick sketch I did of my wife a while back–I should paint her more. It’s a damn shame to have such a pretty wife and not paint her a lot.

Random oil painting tip: don’t paint while wearing a white shirt. It’ll reflect more light on to the painting and mess you up.
