Welcome to my page!


:iconmirz123: This is the alternate account of Mirz123. You can expect to see a lot of varied art here, such as literature, web-design, and traditional art. You'll see alternate pixelling such as digital dolls and some edgy stamps and emotes. This account is also where I publish episodes of my fiction serial, "Relativity." Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy the art.

Edit: In January 2013, I received seniority status on this account, apparently for my work in the community and promoting others art. It's a great honor to be "double ticked" and I thank everyone for their support.
Updated my profile page. Serious work begun on tacking my to-do list.

Relativity



RELATIVITY is a comic fiction serial. Based around "Team Torrent" a group of 4 superheroes who defend Gale City. The difference between this series and most superhero works is that it focuses primarily on the people behind the mask. It follows their lives and how they juggle day to day living while donning a costume to fight crime at night.

Current Relativity - Episode 30

With the city held hostage by an enemy with a personal score to settle, a new hero must rise to the occasion. Racing against the clock, the team must try to stop the maniacal villain and rescue their teammates, before it’s too late. -- Click to Read

My roller coaster of a life shows no sign of slowing down. I am not very active right now, but will make efforts to change that as soon as I can. In the meantime, a few things of note:

 * I've been suffering from some pretty significant depression as of late. Those who are long-time followers know that's not atypical for me. Nevertheless, it's keeping me quiet in general. So please understand if I'm not chatty or seem "off" in responses, etc.  This year has been so difficult, it's really hard to keep a positive outlook sometimes -- though I keep trying.


* Some of you were watching my Facebook account. There was a problem and it was deleted. So, I went ahead and created an "author" account. I say that in quotes, as I mean it to be a general art account. So, if you watch me for my writing, pixels, or fonts, and are on Facebook, then you may want to give it a like.

www.facebook.com/mirz333

Of course, there is still a Relativity page if you want to get the newest news on the series there...

www.facebook.com/blacktorrent


* I upgraded my digital software. It's still an older program, but it can do SO much more than my previous one. I'm hopeful that will get me motivated to pixel. *fingers-crossed*


* The one thing I have managed is to get some significant writing done. We actually should be on schedule with Relativity updates through the end of October (which is our 3-year anniversary for the series). So, yay for something good.


* Of course, if you need to reach me, you can note me here or get me via email at relativityseries[at]gmail.com

Art and Commentary - Vol. 5

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 8, 2014, 3:34 PM
Welcome to Gale City


I do this periodically where I feature some Relativity art with commentary. Not wanting to spam everyone, I had originally hoped to post these every 6-8 weeks, but it looks like it's turning out to be every 3-4 months (though this time it turned into 6 months :paranoid:). Anyhow, looking back over the gallery submissions at RelativityComic during that time, I typically choose fifteen to showcase with some anecdotes about them. Note that this doesn't mean I like the other pieces in the gallery any less. Usually it just means that I want to simply "talk" more about these pieces and how the imagery fits into the series.



Dark Flame and OverCast by IrenHorrors
I adore the work of IrenHorrors. Her art is dark and beautiful; she created one of my all-time favorite commissions! I was ecstatic when she agreed to take on the task of creating a gothic-inspired Overcast and Dark Flame. The look of the characters is great, the styling perfect, and it's great to see our heroic alter-egos looking so sharp. It's always so exciting when one of your favorite artists works on your OCs, and this is no exceptions. I love Iren's work.


Head Games by NurulKamil
Emmy and Michael. :heart: This piece makes the list because I adore this couple. Emmy is the OC of NurulKamil, who also did the art. Michael doesn't have a lot of "outside" loves. But the few he has usually stay with me. In this case, Emmy and him are like oil and vinegar. They are more likely to be fighting than kissing. But, when they kiss... *swoon* I love the pose on this one and the tie-in to the song. It totally gets me thinking about "what happens next."


Target Teaser by mirzjiles
jen-and-kris have done a lot of work for the series over the past few months, and we are so grateful. Their art is amazing; they have a great grasp of the characters that comes through in all of their work. It was hard to pick just one of their teasers to feature (but I try to limit the number in these features so I can showcase more artists). This one gets the spotlight because it's such a dynamic shot and Torrent looks great. This scene is from "Target" an upcoming story in Book 6. Looking at this inspires me so much -- I can't wait to get to it!


Commission: Gray Cyclone by SaraSaeed95
All I can say is...LOVE. Seriously, I fan-girled so hard over this picture. Gray Cyclone (formerly called Gray Tornado) is a character who is introduced later in the series, but he is a total bad-ass, and he will play an important part in future stories. SaraSaeed95 did an amazing job in capturing not only his look, but his stature. This is such a strong depictions of the character, I can't imagine a better picture. One of my favorite commissions as of late. :heart:


Commission: Sara and Raham by fee-absinthe
This is a piece by fee-absinthe shows a scene from a collaboration I am work on with artist/writer, Gnewi. I adore sketch art, and it's not simply a price consideration (though, admittedly that is a factor). There is a certain charm to sketches that is often lost in the lining/coloring process. I love this teaser particularly since I have a soft spot for art which features the heroes in their costume, but without their mask -- just makes them feel more human. The boy who is shown with Dark Flame is Raham, a kid who has a special gift which is a core element of the story.


Vincent 3 by Maryneim
It never ceases to amaze me that Vincent is by far one of our most popular characters, even though he hasn't officially appeared in the series yet. While I have a pretty clear picture of what Vincent looks like in my mind, I have to admit, model deswitath comes very close to that mental image. He has that sinister vampire look down, which is why he's been featured in a few Relativity/Vincent pictures. Photo-manipulation artist Maryneim did an amazing job working with various stock pieces and creating this scene from Vincent's history.  One of my recent favorites.


Michael by Piccolaria by mirzjiles
Despite being the star of the show, there really aren't a lot of pictures of Michael Bruce. And there certainly aren't enough with him looking like the sexy beast that he is. I adore this sketch from CristianaLeone. She managed to capture his handsome features, awesome body, and that look of fierce determination that he wears a good deal of the time. One of my all-time favorite pictures of him. *swoon*


Expectation of salvation by jen-and-kris
I have long wanted a picture of Sara during the "dark period" where she is captured by the vampires. Granted, that happened in her original history (and there is no guarantee it will happen in Relativity), but it's one of my favorite mental images of her and I thought it would be neat to have a picture of it. jen-and-kris did such an amazing job capturing how I envisioned the piece. Sara is simply beautiful, and you can see she's not just sitting there, playing the role of the victim -- she's definitely planning something.


Commission - Relativity: Yule by Astral-Muffin
This piece is probably my favorite art featuring Yule, ever. It's also one of my all-time favorite commissions. The intensity and the emotion in this piece blows me away, every time. Yule is such a complex character, and despite his confident demeanor, there is an ocean of pain and hurt underneath. Seriously, I don't think the artist could have done a better job at conveying the scene portrayed here. Yule's torment summed up perfectly. I love it.


Phanthro by ThreshTheSky
Jim and I were so excited to finally be approaching the part in the story where Phanthro was introduced. We hoped to tie it in with a "real-life" portrait from ThreshTheSky. We were not disappointed. For a character who has been around for two decades, it was simply amazing to see him and say, "OMG, that's him!" My mental image of the villain is now this, period. Though, I do need to give a nod to Smoludozerka. She created the image that Thresh used heavily as a reference. It excites me so much when our artists bounce off of each other.


cm: Penny by ilAyanami-sato
While I enjoy getting art of the main players, I get a particular joy receiving pictures of the secondary characters. Relativity is so much more than the heroes. There's so many other players, big and small, who have an impact on the series. In this case, Penny is a character who will have a significant role, but she doesn't appear until Cycle 3. Sweet, shy, and a bit of a nerd, ilAyanami-sato managed to convey those things, while still making her pretty and approachable. Lovely work.


Relatively Courageous - Dark Flame by PizzaPotatoNBacon
This was a gift from my friend, PizzaPotatoNBacon. I love the stylized cartoon drawing. I joke about Dark Flame's hair a lot (and I've gotten much more relaxed about it over the past year or so). I thinks it's way cool how PPNB depicted it. Plus, that bad-ass look Flare has is great. A super-fun piece and lovely present I wanted to showcase.


Jetpack-joyride by TovioRogers
Tony! Michael's friend doesn't get enough love, but part of that has to do with the fact that he's not around much in the story at the moment. Still, the consummate playboy is one of our favorite, as is his best friend, and confidante, Mona Andris. I wanted a piece that had Tony showing off his powers a bit, and Mona tagging along for the ride. TovioRogers did a lovely job of depicting the couple and capturing their close friendship.


Happy Birthday, mirz-alt!! :) by Gnewi
A birthday gift from the sweet Gnewi. This picture shows Sara when she is going through a difficult period in her life. Honestly, aside from the scene itself, I simple adore the art on this. The monochrome coloring is beautiful, and the park/city is gorgeous. So many road bumps in the series. I am continually awed and grateful that the various artists are able to depict the ups and downs of the characters so beautifully.


Cold Case (commission) by Smoludozerka
Two words: Vincent! Overcast! Again, Vincent seems to be the villain of the hour, and for good reason. He will be making his first official appearance soon in the story "Cold Case", and what an appearance it will be. Unfortunately, Overcast will be at the receiving end of his rancor. As to how it actually plays out, well, you'll just have to wait and see. Smoludozerka did an amazing job with this scene. Vincent looks sufficiently cool and composed, and Overcast seems quite aware he's in deep trouble. As for their location...that is the sewers. Gah, so much awesomeness in this picture, and so much awesomeness to come.


Jim's Pick


While I tend to handle the art, Ravenswd certainly enjoys looking at it and gets just as excited as I do about receiving new pieces. Most of the time he agrees with my "best picks," though on occasion he likes to choose a few of his own.

The stalker by CristianaLeone

Just one this time. Jim was really taken by this teaser image. You get a great sense of what is going on in the scene, even if you don't know what's happening. Wren's expression is dead-on, and you can totally guess what is going to happen next. Poor Michael, seems his love life just gets more and more complicated. As a side-note, this teaser is from an upcoming story in Book 6. Art by the loverly CristianaLeone

Mini-Contest - 2 Entries - 6 Days Left

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 8, 2014, 4:56 AM
 
 
Only one entry so far. Since this is just a little side contest, I'm not going to extend the deadline or anything. I probably should have promoted it more, but life (and health) is still crazy. Anyhow, one week left. And for those who asked, the deadline is September 15, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. CST




I was supposed to announce this a few days ago, but I had to go and say I was feeling better. I should know better. Jinxed myself into strep throat again. :grump:

That said, I am here to announced a mini contest! This one is a literature-only contest, I'm afraid. But, don't worry. The yearly Relativity contest is coming soon, so visual artists will have their chance then.

Partners by mirzjiles

This was a commission from the wonderful jen-and-kris which shows Ravenswood (dressed as Overcast) proposing to Melody (dressed as Zephyra). The challenge it to write the scene that tells what happened. Perhaps you want to explore how he proposed, or where he proposed, or what she said. The piece should be no longer than 3000 words. Poetry will be accepted, but it should be no longer than 40 lines.

:bulletwhite: Winning entry will get 500 points
:bulletwhite: If there are enough entries, a runner up will get 250 points

Compassion has been sweet enough to add 50 to the pot for the winner, so first place will get 550 points. Thank you, lovely! :heart:

Note that entering the contest grants us permission to publish your story on our Blacktorrent.us website. However, you will always get credit and a link-back to your profile page. :meow:

All entries should be linked in this journal so I can keep track of them. Thumbs or regular links are fine. Judges will be me and Ravenswd. Deadline for entries is September 15th.

Good luck, everyone!

Marry MeTolkien once said there'd be one ring
One to rule them all, one ring to bind them
But I have no use for such a thing
If I could wake to see you at 3 AM
Still right here by my side
I won't need to search far and wide
Because I know you are my one, my only
I hope you'd spend your whole life with me
I hope you'll say yes
Just please say yes
I'm shaking
Scared as I go down on one knee
And you're standing here before me
Your gaze resting on the ring
The seconds trickle by
I see tears in your eyes
My dear Melody
Please say you'll marry me
They say it's win or die
When you play the game of thrones
I find it's quite the lie
When I'm here all alone
If I had a castle, you'd be my queen
You should know that I say what I mean
That smile on your face is my saving grace
The warmth of your embrace
It's the haven I seek
There's no more need to speak
You're shaking
Smiling as you look me in the eye
Saying, "I'm yours 'til the day I die"
Slip on the ring
And the world rushes past
This is a union made to

Helpful Lit Things


Since I'm no expert, I try to learn new things and find handy resources to help me in my writing. I like to share some of my best-finds in the hopes they will help you, too.

Writer Resources and MoreWhen poking around for stuff on my own, I sometimes come across things I think other writers may find useful. While it's fine to tweet and write polls about them, I figure it would be more helpful if I started a journal and kept a running list. Would help me to keep track of them, too. I'll update this when I find new  things.
