Mikoleggy's Profile Picture
Michael Offner
Artist | Hobbyist | Digital Art
Hi! I'm studying Material Engineering, but more importantly, I'm teaching myself how to art, in my free time. I'm one of those people who found out they'd rather spend their lives drawing AFTER they signed up for the wrong lifestyle. So in my free time I'm trying to improve my skills in character design, comics, storyboarding, and general visual storytelling.


Okay, I'll admit, these are actually kinda fun. Because who doesn't like talking about themselves?

❥⚬R͟e͟a͟l͟ N͟a͟m͟e͟: Michael RR Offner. Normally I wouldn't be cool with uploading my real name on the internet, but if I want to make TV entertainment, my name will end up on the internet somewhere, sometime anyways.

❥⚬R͟a͟c͟e͟: Pasty-Ass white cracker.
❥⚬N͟a͟t͟i͟o͟n͟a͟l͟i͟t͟y: Belgo-American
❥⚬R͟e͟l͟i͟g͟i͟o͟n͟: Truthism (…)
❥⚬S͟t͟a͟t͟u͟s͟: Single and content, though I'd be down for a relationship if I found someone as weird and crazy as me.
❥⚬B͟i͟r͟t͟h͟d͟a͟y͟: August 22nd, 1998
❥⚬Z͟o͟d͟i͟a͟c͟: Leo
❥⚬H͟a͟i͟r͟ C͟o͟l͟o͟r͟: Dirty blonde
❥⚬E͟y͟e͟ C͟o͟l͟o͟r͟: Blue and green.
❥⚬H͟a͟v͟e͟ T͟a͟t͟t͟o͟o͟s͟?: Nope.

❥⚬W͟e͟a͟r͟ G͟l͟a͟s͟s͟e͟s͟?: During lectures and when drawing stuff yeah.

→ Dσ Yσυ. . .
(Why is there a Greek sigma where the o is supposed to be? That would be pronounced "Ds ysu?")

❥⚬W͟r͟i͟t͟e͟?: I'm trying to learn how to write screenplays.
❥⚬R͟o͟l͟e͟p͟l͟a͟y͟?: Back when BattleOn Forums was my internet home I was part of the RPing community there, but it was different. We didn't pretend to be existing character or whatever, we made our own specifically to tell an improvised story. It was fun but we never actually went anywhere with it. I did create some cool characters tho.
❥⚬S͟i͟n͟g͟?: Yeah, I've been in a few choirs, performed in a recital with Broadway people (The pianist knew the composer of the Phantom of the Opera personally!!! :o ), played in a band for half a year and do plenty of singing on my own time.
❥⚬D͟r͟a͟w͟?: Yeah, several times a week.
❥⚬E͟d͟i͟t͟?: Nope.
❥⚬E͟x͟e͟r͟c͟i͟s͟e͟?: I try to hit the pool three times a week. It's easier on the body than running, meaning I'm less likely to wimp out and not exercise.
❥⚬P͟l͟a͟y͟ S͟p͟o͟r͟t͟s͟?: I should be soon. With luck I'll get a place in the fencing course at my Uni's sport facility.
❥⚬D͟a͟n͟c͟e͟?: I'm also going to sign up for the Charleston dance class so we'll see.
❥⚬R͟e͟a͟d͟?: Not enough. I was a book kid, but most of what I read now are art books and anime subtitles.
❥⚬W͟o͟r͟k͟?: No. 
❥⚬B͟l͟o͟g͟?: No.
❥⚬D͟r͟i͟n͟k͟?: Fresher's week is coming up, I'm going to get drunk as a skunk! Cider has got to be my favorite drink. Specifically Strongbow. There's only one pub in my town that serves it tho. :(
❥⚬C͟o͟o͟k͟?: Yeah. Nothing fancy but I can provide for myself pretty well.
❥⚬B͟a͟k͟e͟?: I can make very average brownies.
❥⚬P͟l͟a͟y͟ a͟n͟ I͟n͟s͟t͟r͟u͟m͟e͟n͟t͟?: Guitar, Bass guitar, some drums, the intro to Desperado on keyboard, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on violin, I used to play trombone and I sing.

❥⚬M͟o͟v͟i͟e͟?: Too Many To Count.
❥⚬A͟n͟i͟m͟e͟?: Boku No Hero Academia.
❥⚬T͟V͟ S͟h͟o͟w͟?: Gravity Falls got me into cartoons, but I think my favorite now is Hey Arnold or Phineas and Ferb.
❥⚬C͟h͟a͟r͟a͟c͟t͟e͟r͟?: From my favorite TV show or in general? Isabella Garcia-Shapiro. She's adorable!
❥⚬A͟r͟t͟i͟s͟t͟?: Feng Zhu is pretty cool. And Frank Frazetta. Plus all the guys and gals behind the shows I love.
❥⚬S͟o͟n͟g͟?: Too many to count. 
❥⚬S͟i͟n͟g͟e͟r͟?: Too many to count. 
❥⚬B͟a͟n͟d͟?: Too many to count.
❥⚬M͟a͟n͟g͟a͟?: Sonzaishinai
❥⚬A͟c͟t͟o͟r͟?: Barret Wilbert Weed. Her laugh is just... Perfect. (She's also the only person I know for sure I want to cast into my cartoon if I can get her to)
❥⚬S͟u͟b͟j͟e͟c͟t͟?: CHEMISTRY!
❥⚬S͟c͟e͟n͟t͟?: Eau de Aisselle
❥⚬F͟o͟o͟d͟?: Tartelette au Citron

→ Rσмαи¢є~

❥⚬S͟e͟x͟u͟a͟l͟i͟t͟y͟?: Straight
❥⚬C͟r͟u͟s͟h͟i͟n͟g͟?: No. I only know about five women in my town and all of them are in relationships already.
❥⚬B͟f͟/ G͟f͟: Nope.
❥⚬E͟v͟e͟r͟ G͟e͟t͟ M͟a͟r͟r͟i͟e͟d͟?: God help me if I ever do.
❥⚬H͟a͟v͟e͟ K͟i͟d͟s͟?: Nope.

❥⚬T͟e͟a͟ o͟r͟ C͟o͟f͟f͟e͟e͟?: Tea.
❥⚬W͟i͟i͟ o͟r͟ X͟b͟o͟x͟?: Wii, everything on Xbox is better on PC anyways.
❥⚬H͟a͟r͟r͟y͟ P͟o͟t͟t͟e͟r͟ o͟r͟ P͟e͟r͟c͟y͟ J͟a͟c͟k͟s͟o͟n͟?: Both. Harry is a classic, but Percy is dear to me, he accompanied me from third grade to graduation.
❥⚬F͟l͟o͟w͟e͟r͟s͟ o͟r͟ C͟h͟o͟c͟o͟l͟a͟t͟e͟s͟?: Chocolates. What would I do with plant genitalia?
❥⚬M͟o͟n͟e͟y͟ o͟r͟ P͟r͟e͟s͟e͟n͟t͟s͟?: Money.
❥⚬G͟a͟m͟e͟ B͟o͟y͟ o͟r͟ D͟S͟?: DS.
❥⚬D͟e͟s͟k͟t͟o͟p͟ o͟r͟ L͟a͟p͟t͟o͟p͟?: A laptop as powerful as a desktop.
❥⚬C͟o͟u͟n͟t͟r͟y͟ o͟r͟ J͟a͟z͟z͟?: Depends. If it's good and more in the folk direction, country music is excellent. Tom Ame's Prayer or the Dead South for instance. Jazz is also excellent though.
❥⚬E͟a͟r͟b͟u͟d͟s͟ o͟r͟ H͟e͟a͟d͟p͟h͟o͟n͟e͟s͟?: Headphones last longer and since I swim for exercise don't need 'em for running either.
❥⚬T͟r͟u͟m͟p͟ o͟r͟ H͟i͟l͟l͟a͟r͟y͟?: Someone who's honest about being an asshole is still an asshole. Hillary is your typical smooth talking but do-nothing politician that I wouldn't trust to do anything worthwhile. Trump is trustworthy. You can trust him to fuck everything up for everyone.
❥⚬D͟o͟g͟ o͟r͟ C͟a͟t͟?: DOGGIE!
❥⚬S͟o͟d͟a͟ o͟r͟ J͟u͟i͟c͟e͟?: Juice is healthier.

❥⚬M͟u͟f͟f͟i͟n͟ o͟r͟ S͟c͟o͟n͟e͟?: Muffin. Scones are lumpy weird things.
❥⚬S͟l͟e͟e͟p͟ o͟r͟ N͟e͟x͟t͟ E͟p͟i͟s͟o͟d͟e͟?: I need the sleep. I really need the sleep.

Tree Sketch
It feels good to work with traditional media again.

I felt like learning to draw trees better, and I also got this fancy schmancy calligraphy pen that you have to dip in real ink from a pot to use from my art teacher, so I wanted to try it out some more. Once you learn how to use it, it's quite fun. I might start doing my ink work traditionally, because I can get nicer lines using this than the digital tools.

I'll definitely be participating in Inktober this year.
Hugo and the Snake WIP 2
Making some headway.

The rendering still needs a lot of work, I need to get Hugo's pose right and draw him in on a separate layer, I need to shade the alcoves behind the background arches, determine whether or not I'm doing cell or realistic shading for the snake, etcetera.

What really bugs me is the amount of little inconsistencies. I've gotten past the stage where I can fix them, really and don't even know if I can fix them. The different sizes of each arch, the foreground arches, and so on.

I think I might have bit off more than I can chew with this piece.
Hugo and the Snake WIP 1
Big snek is big.

Got a lot of work left to do but the real conceptual fun stage is over. :(
From here on out the only real work is shading, detailing and coloring. Oh and I need to finish up with Hugo's pose and his lighting but that shouldn't be too hard.

There are a few things I need to change up a bit. Like where the rightmost column in the foreground has a value too similar to the night sky. Going to have to make the backlighting there more evident. And similar things like that.
Cliff Hangers
Been working on this for ages. Or at least it feels that way.

I'm going to update it later, I'm still not fully satisfied with the plants in the foreground, but for the most part it's finished and I'm okay with uploading it to my main gallery. You can see a few WIPs in my scraps too. 
Plants are hard.

I originally planned to use this as the main illustration for a character page in my pitch bible, but I think I screwed up early on by picking a scenario that's too epic. Vinny (The black elf girl and the character this was made for) 's main trait is that she's a helpful and kind person regardless of the situation. The problem is, almost any character that isn't an asshole would try to save their friends if they're falling to certain death. So it's not really very representational of her character and thus not really suitable for her character sheet.
So I'm probably going to make another illustration for her later on.

But first, I'm going to get around to finishing the next character's illustration, Hugo. Once he's done the main three characters will be at least started on and I can explore the side characters and do more in depth environment designs.

Oh, and I'm going to start crediting people who helped me out in my paintings, so special thanks to Wolflich for his tips on plants! :D

EDIT: Fixed the plants. I think it looks a little less obvious now. And cleaned up some silhouettes in the background.
