The closing of the Formal Art Blog

So there was no reason to have the "Formal Art Blog", pretty sure no one knows of it's exsistance, that and I don't update very often. The original idea was to have an online portfolio of sorts... but let's face it... blogspot is not the place to do that... something like that is much better suited to a website.
But in order to preserve the few posts I did have. I'll be copy-pasting them here so those that didn't see them will have a chance to look, and I can keep them for my records.
They go from earliest to latest--->

Portrait of someone you hate

For digital illustration we were given the assignment of creating a portrait of someone that we hate. While honestly I don't really dislike anyone enough to hate them, I'm not too fond of Paris Hilton, so that was who I chose.
Both were done in illustrator.

Historical Fiction 6 Pages

I had thought up quite a large story for a what was supposed to be a simple project so I just did a six page excerpt from it.
To kind of lead you into what the story is about so you're not completely confused: it's set in a fictional 1930's America where Vampire's are basically living "with" humans. Different clans an factions exist among the vampires, but the leading human organizations aren't governmental based like you would expect, instead the different Gangster families are leading in terms of power.
The main character Hayden was saved by an elderly vampire when he was young and lived with him until the old man died, but his death was not a natural one. The one responsible for the old Vampire's death is a very powerful vampire by the name of Georgiano. Hayden leaves on a journey to take down Georgiano and finds friends along the way, gradually building a team that will take down Georgiano once they find him. At this point in the story, only Glenn and Charlotte have been gathered, each for their own reasons, but they all share the common goal of wanting to destroy Georgiano.

"Place" Cover Image

This is an image from the cover of a mini-comic that I made. It's strictly pencil and ink. I had been meaning to post it here for quite some time but thought that I had lost the image. Luckly I found it so that I could put it up here.

I keep debating closing mine as well, just because it's such a pain to have ten millions blogs. And then have to have a website : / .
