Flight Rising

For the past couple of years I've been working on a Project called Flight Rising. Flight Rising will be a social web-based activity site featuring dragon breeding, adventuring, and collecting. Make friends, play games, and grow your clan!

The team is fairly close to a release and we're now ready to start releasing previews. If you'd care to follow the project, you can find info at our various social media groups here:

I'm currently doing an art stream on tinychat.

Tinychat is a bit different than livestream. Livestream is good at recording high def video from a single source and having a nice chat feed to go with it. Tinychat's video is very low quality and nothing is recorded for playback, but it's a bit more social. You can have up to 12 video feeds going at once, and you can enlarge any one of the if you want to get a better look. It's great fun if you're just arting around and want some company. You can see what others are working on as you draw and chat. Going to give this a try and see how it works out. :-)

  • If you’re going to be sharing a video feed, it’s art-related only. I don’t want to see a webcam of you or your cat or a video feed of you surfing the web and playing video games.

  • The art that you broadcast should be safe-for-work. Please no exposed breasts , genitalia, or excessive violence.

  • No audio feeds. Choose “Camera Only” please. Mics and music coming from a variety of sources all at the same time is very distracting!

  • I put together a little tutorial on how to broadcast your desktop.

    The completed hippocamp from yesterday's livestream. I think I made a rather poor choice in the background, as it's so busy it distracts from the hippocamp and seahorses in the foreground.

    Livestreaming Hippocamp

    Stream is now offline. You can still click the link and watch past recordings, but it is no longer live.

    I'll be livingstreaming my art here for a while. I hope to finish coloring my hippocamp image and possibly get a start on inking my pearlcatcher dragons. Livestream is a program that allows me to stream my desktop (and thus my photoshop window) as a video feed so that visitors can watch as I work.

    Hippocamp Flat Colors

    Currently putting in the last of the flat colors for my hippocamp image. I still need to fill in some more detail in the background rocks and get that little arch in the middleground filled in. I plan on finishing this onLivestream tomorrow. :-)

    I think I finally found a system that will hook up my livejournal, tumblr, twitter, and facebook in a daisy-chain effect. Took all night. For anyone who was bombarded with my updates while I tested, you have my apologies. Thank you for your patience. Note that I will only use the daisy-chain effect for art posts, so no one should be getting spammed from this, since I assume most people follow me for art updates.
