Taking On The Future Feb FINAL

I have made enormous progress over these past ten years, working in artistic talent.

I have done a lot of drawings, coloring, animations, writing and music.


And while my writing is too intangible to show in video, I have elected to redo a select few of my original 3D artwork and 2D designs using techniques and philosophies I've developed over the course of the past year. And so here begins my tour, as I take on the future that is within me. I even elected to write an anthem for myself. An anthem that reflects my current, happier disposition; while still keeping true to my Afro-Latin roots. The four minute (and some change) video will go through, in no specific order, a flythru of the 2013 Amani Unus project (Which uses the 2004 model I designed on paper in Drafting,) First Person view point animation, flags, space scenes and soldiers. Some of the redos feature characters from my writings, while others are much more subtle. So mash that play button. Take in the music, and most importantly, comment on what you expect me to do in this new year, and the coming year. I am open to suggestions. So play away. Take on your future; and be inspired to stay inspired.

Leonard Nimoy has passed away this morning. He was 83 years of age.
Live long and prosper. Even in death, your memories will live on, in the lore of storytellers the world over. Rest in Paradise, Leonard "Spock" Nimoy.

Today is Valentine's Day. And I want to wish two very special friends a happy one. soundwave3591 , and the lovely, sweet Princess-Meta , a great day today and everyday.
Additionally, I've not been very active here on DA, as I've been focused on writing my book, music and background stories.  I do plan on at some point, uploading a collection of flags and animated characters soon however. So expect me to partake in some DA shenanigans soon.

Additionally, I am now considering creating animated flags for people who may desire them. These flags will be TINY, only at 50x50 pixels in size, so use big emblems. If anyone is interested, let me know in the status. If you are serious, please note me, as I will be sending these flags through Skype.

If you want a flag, please IM me at: isaac.thomas.riley on SKYPE and attach the flag you want me to animate.
If you want an irregularly shaped flag, such as one with a cut-out on a specific edge, please indicate it on your flag picture and in your IM.

Anyone wishing to message me about these flags, please say in your message, "I am contacting you about your animated flags."
When I animate these flags, they will be designed for a profile avatar. If you want a larger version, just let me know once we setup a line of communication.
I don't know how well this will do, but I did animate a flag for soundwave3591 .

Also, with my busy schedule, don't expect anything right away. I will deliver on my promise like I have in the past.  So be patient. These will be 3D animations, after all.

Finally, I just wanted to say to you all, that I am enjoying myself. To my two closest friends, I am doing very well down here in NC, and would very much expect to visit you guys soon. To everyone else, expect more of me in the coming months. So don't smash that un-watch button!
Ten paciencia! Have patience. I will return soon!

So in recap, have a great Valentine's day everyone, and be sure to let me know who wants a flag. See y'all later.

The-Port-of-Riches's Profile Picture
The-Port-of-Riches
Isaac Thomas Riley
Artist | Hobbyist | Film & Animation
United States
From Boston, Massachusetts. Born and raised.
I am a starving artist and lover of love. A decent human being who wants to be loved and adored not by many, but by those few who've chosen to stay.

I was born in April of 1990 to a mixed-race family. My mother is Puerto Rican and my father African-Brit. Me and my brothers are as close as can be. (My baby step-sister has nothing to worry about.)

For most of my life, I designed and created music and literature. Only recently branching out into the joys of 3D animation. Like all youngsters with Asperger's, I thrived in my own elements of knowledge building and hard work. Unlike most youngsters, I was unable to read full sentences till I was nine, and yet I ended up thriving as a writer today. Middle and high school was rough for me. Bullying both social and racial bred resentment in my peers and ultimately friendship in some few who dared explore my mind.

College was even harder as I started to venture out into the world dealing with Schizophrenia and my dual diagnosis of Asperger's and Autism. But yet I continued to thrive. After a short crisis in high school, I vowed to push myself as hard as I can in a positive direction, and with that I have been successful.

In my formative years with 3D animation, I took care of three dogs (Huska, Goyo and Munchie) as well as two cats (Jasper and Alice.) I nearly fell through the cracks by the time I started college, but pulled myself together with help from my few friends. Quiet and philosophic as some might say, I've developed a close relationship with few people - all of whom continue to guide me today.

I've never had a romantic relationship, as I've found myself too immersed in my hobbies to have one, but as of late, since moving to Raleigh North Carolina and having no friends around to assist me and my mother/guardian adjust to life down south, I've found myself seeking someone to hold.

My new challenges are tough ones, but I'm sure that at some point I'll overcome them. I want to go back to school for writing and music theory to have better tools to develop my two greatest interests, and I also want to start having a small social life down here in Raleigh. Maybe also start working to help pay the bills in the house.

But like all challenges, I will overcome, persevere and grow. Hopefully there will be more people to help see me grow down here as there are up north.

So I leave you, my friend, with this. What's in a name?
I = Innovative
S = Smart
A = Accepting
A = Accomplished
C = Caring

T = Talkative
H = Hopeful
O = Outspoken
M = Musician
A = Able
S = Safe

R = Respectful
I = Impressive
L = Loving
E = Explorer
Y = Youthful

I love the colors scheme, but I do feel that you could use reference stocks to make the character's pose a little more realistic. But since it's a first try, there are no complaints here. ^_^
Really, I'd say, once you feel more comfortable with your growing talent, that you can return back and redraw 'Jessica" again. Does she have a back story? It'd be interesting to learn a little more about her, too.

Keep up the good work. Do you just do crayons, or also colored pencils and paint? I feel that multiple different styles won't do any harm whatsoever. And I can't wait to see more from you. Good luck, and have a blessed day. :)
