Wanderer & Tangerine
Artist | Student | Digital Art

Meet the duo of WanderingDragon379. Tangerine (Blue) and Wanderer (Red)
If you want to get technical, than it's writer in blue and illustrator in red. XD
If you have spoken to us before now, you were talking to Wanderer. We'll be announcing ourselves from now on to anyone we've interacted with before. Tangerine's a bit internet-shy, but she's also newer to high-speed than Wanderer is as well.

Hello! This is Tangerine. Wanderer has kindly shared her page with me, and, although I haven't been active here in the past, I hope to be more so from now on. Wanderer has given me the privilege of helping develop characters like Shiannon from Spirit of Nature and Hirabayashi Hisako from the Yakousai series, and I've even had the opportunity to co-author these stories, though I really haven't followed through with that yet. Hopefully, I will abandon (at least temporarily) my procrastination and perfectionism long enough to upload something and be less of a phantom. : )

Wanderer here! I'm the main illustrator between us while Tangerine is the writer. Our specialties do overlap a bit but she still beats me to a pulp when it comes to writing. I occasionally do sculpture and 3D animation, both of which you can find pictures of in the gallery and scrapbook. When I'm not doing coursework, I'm practicing on my drawing. And... listening to music, researching for personal projects, watching Youtube videos, reading fanfiction (great for inspiration), and... not much else I can think of right off the bat. ^^;

Wanderer's FAQ:

Q. What programs do you use?
A. Adobe's Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Illustrator (all CC), Dragonframe, QuickTime Player, and Autodesk Maya 2013. (College's Macintosh OS X laptop. The list is steadily growing).
Photoshop 6 and Hypercam 2. Autodesk Maya animation program. (WindowsXP).

Q. Do you take commissions?
A. No. I don't have PayPal or any online pay program so I'm not able to accept payment yet, as much as I'd like to.

Q. Do you do art trades and/or collaborations?
A. Only with very close friends, and even that's extremely rare.

Q. Do you take requests?
A. Used to. Because that question only came up maybe once every few months it wasn't a problem. But these days as soon as one request got finished, someone else would ask the magic question and I wouldn't have time to get personal work done.
I am always open to ideas however!



Current Residences: Transylvania County, NC; Sarasota, FL.
Favourite genre of music: Pretty much all of them.
Exceptions? With today's "modern" tastes, if one has a habit of playing it loud enough to wake the dead or shake the car, chances are high its one of surprisingly few types I can't stand. ("screaming" metal, rap, dubstep, and hip hop)
Favourite style of art: I do have a major fascination for surreal and concept art. But I go for anything that makes sense.
Favourite cartoon character: Daffy Duck, Mulan, Himura Kenshin, Edward Elric, Olivier Armstrong, Zelgadis Greywords...
Personal Quote: Love your enemies. It'll make 'em crazy. ^^
Interests
Been wondering about the lack of big paintings and finished deviations as a whole for the past couple of months since college has been out? Well, it certainly hasn't been a lack of trying.

I've have these "artistic growth spurts" before but this has got to be the longest, and dare I say hardest one I've had to put up with. I've been learning how a tiger feels with its 10% hunting success rate, if you apply that to artistic situations.

Over the past year I have started about 10-15 different Photoshop projects and only two of them have reached completion:

Shetan - Metamorphosis by WanderingDragon379 and Sleep, My Brother by WanderingDragon379 And the last one made about the time this all started: Final Fantasy VII - Vincent Valentine + VIDEO by WanderingDragon379

And that's just the big paintings. The smaller, simpler ones (excluding doodles, WIPs and class works) have had better success.

What's been happening to the rest of the big ones? Practically nothing. I'd get them 1/3 to 1/2 way done and then I would stop because what I would usually do after that point is no longer satisfying for me. Some of the files I would delete because I no longer liked the composition; the rest just sit there waiting while my skill level tries to catch up with the new standard my mind is setting.

Granted, most artists feel this way about their work for their whole lifetime. There's just the occasional phase where that feeling is particularly intense...and I seem to be in one of those phases right now. It's annoying, to say the least.

I really hope this ends soon. :iconorzplz:



Sorry for the rant, guys. It's just been bugging me lately. T_T
